This drama was produced by Comic Productions (可米製作股份有限公司) and directed by Mingtai Wang (王明台). It was filmed on location at National Chi Nan University in Puli, Nantou County.

Although the original manga's title is "For You In Full Blossom," the Chinese title means "The Tricks of Boys and Girls," referring to student life within the drama. The official English name is an alternate romanization of the original manga's title. When VIZ media translated the manga from Japanese to English, "Kimitachi e" became "Kimitachihe." The Chinese title is also the name used in the Chinese translation of the Hana-Kimi manga by Tong Li Publishing.
