Hana Kimi - Differences - Netflix
There are many differences from the manga and drama. Though the concept and characters are the same, the story is described differently. For example, Sano got injured from saving his friend, while in the drama he got injured from saving Mizuki. Genders are also different in the drama as well. Akiha is supposed to be a guy, however the character is portrayed as a woman in the drama. In the manga Sano found out Mizuki's true gender when he accidentally “felt her up”, but in the drama Sano finds out Mizuki's a girl when he overhears Mizuki talking to her brother. Nakatsu also found out about Mizuki's gender a lot earlier, while in the manga he finds out Mizuki's true gender along with everyone else.
