If you haven't heard of this anime, you are absolutely insane. It started as a manga, but now there's 2 seasons of anime episodes as well as a live action drama released way back in September 2010. It's absolutely the cutest thing ever!
Kimi ni Todoke is about a poor little girl named Sawako Kuronuma. She's really quite cute- except for the fact that she doesn't know how to interact with others, and looks a bit like the Grudge.
Yeah, that's not pretty.Kimi ni Todoke is set in a high school, and all of the main characters except for the teacher happen to be freshmen at the beginning- now it's turning to their second year of high school as sophomores.
But anyways, she's named "Sadako" like the Grudge because she's quite depressing. But she falls for a guy called Kazehaya, who's one of those super nice, cheerful, popular guys. Unrealistic? But it so happens that he fell for her waaay back in the beginning of their freshman year. Sawako, in her attempt to become a more cheery person, sees Kazehaya looking around curiously for the school, and she tells him nervously which way it is. He smiles cheerily, unlike everyone else, and thanks her, walking on his way. Sawako happily smiles (while looking abnormally pretty!) and Kazehaya turns back curiously to see her smile. That's when he becomes curious about her, but finds she is depressing to everyone else in their class.
That's just how it begins. I'm going to start giving chapter summaries soon, or episode summaries. x) I will also be listing some of my favorite manga/anime series soon.
