I’m watching a Chinese drama called Meteor Garden which is based off this anime. I dunno if I should watch the anime afterwards, since the transition might be weird, but… how IS the anime? I’ve heard only good things about it so far. And does anyone know if there have been alot of other anime that were made into Chinese dramas? Meteor Garden has been really impressive so far… I never would’ve thought an anime would translate SO well into a “real people” show. But I guess they just picked the perfect actors + director, etc. …goes back to watching it <.<
