Kimi ni Todoke Series
With long black hair and Sadako (from "The Ring")-like features, Sawako
Kuronuma is shunned by her fellow schoolmates, even when greeting them. False rumors about her power to curse and
summon ghosts make for a lonely life for the plain and kind Sawako. However unlike the rest, Shouta Kazehaya, the most popular boy in school, treats her with kindness. Gradually
feelings of admiration and respect begin to evolve in a love story for the ages.

Oh the dramatics, let it end! Well, thank god I didn't feel that way. While some of it did indeed get somewhat overplayed at times, it's what this series was built around. The good thing though is they didn't make it a bad habit. While slice-of-life series are notorious for "mis-understandings", this series didn't play off of those and played more off the reality that really happens. Despite the naivety of Kuronuma, she has surprisingly fewer misunderstandings than characters like Naru Narusegawa from Love Hina. That's probably what makes this series better than the rest, for me.
Specifically on humor, you'll find enough of it. It isn't quite the slapstick humor but nor is it always so subtle.
I like Sawako, Ayane, Chizuru, Ryuu. ^^ Sawako, needs to speak up for herself more. Chizuru has her own code & seems nice, like Ayane. Ryuu just seems very chill & nice ^^ Though I will say I dislike how incredibly stupid/dense Sawako & Shouta act, even though they like each other & both know it on a certain level. It's really kinda frustrating.
This was the first Shoujo anime I've ever watched, I didn't like it in the beginning since I enjoy Shounen more...
But in the end, it brought up a hidden instinct, which is looking for someone to love :'(
Kimi ni Todoke can be considered as a bit "cliché"; I mean, it wouldn't be the first time a story focuses on the lonely, misunderstood girl who likes this popular and kind boy, right? However, Kimi ni Todoke succeeds in making it fresh with Sawako and Kazehaya. It is of course a love story, but it is also the progression of Sawako as a person : she gradually opens herself to everyone, makes friends... in a word, she begins to live her life to the fullest.
Very romantic, funny, touching, and sweet. I like how Kazehaya is not "that popular boy" if you know what I mean. He's different from other popular male characters I came across in other anime. He "likes" Sawako for who she is and makes her feel good about herself, and she makes him feel the same way. Sawako also makes good friends in the series, and it makes the series even enjoyable to watch.
Although this is another one of your regular shoujo animes, the story is so cute that it makes you want to keep watching. The pace of the story can be really slow sometimes but, I think, that adds more realism to the story in general. It's a really nice anime to watch if you are in the mood for something happy.
GOD! Such a romantic anime! Its really cuuutee!
Sawako , called Sadako by her classmates for her resemblance to the character from The Ring, has always been feared and misunderstood because of her appearance of a scary dead doll. There are rumors that Sawako can see ghosts and curse people. However, despite her appearances, she is a sweet and timid girl who longs to be able to make friends with everyone . When her idol, popular boy Kazehaya, begins talking with her, everything changes. She finds herself in a new world, trying to make friends and talking to different people and she can't thank Kazehaya enough for giving her these opportunities. Slowly...(maybe too slowly)...a sweet love blossoms between the two.Besides the super funny moments of Sawko :)
i watched the two seasons with a span of four days....
it was a beautiful somewhat upsetting but also a inspiring show.
it was really good.
i hate romance novels and sappy anime shows but... this was not sappy, it was well written.
and each character was unique and had control over their life.
I am not a love story liking version but i really loved this anime, it had GOOD love story, and a good balance of humor and drama. And I thought the anime was really good. The opening and ending songs are pretty good too.
The first season was almost pretty, but the second one... NERVE-WRACKING! I don't think a character as stupid, annoying
and mindless as Sawako has ever been created in the history of Japanese animation! Yet the other characters are all so
nice.. But how can she always misinterpret every word that someone says, blind to the evidence that even a blind would
see, and build sand castles on it for days? One should have lived all his life at the North Pole without the slightest
contact with a human being to end up with the communication problems she has, not even an angle of 179° is so
SAWAKO KURONUMA: "When I told him my feelings, he understood. When I said I wasn’t lying, he believed me."
It's sweet. But not that overwhelming kind. It's about an innocent, shy girl who tries to portray her feelings properly to others, but because of her resemblance to the Sadako (from The Ring) she is isolated. There is, however, a young refreshing boy who tries to befriend her and who she, in turns, respects greatly. In this slice of life story, she creates new friendships, a new love, and a sense of belonging in her class. It's a lovely story.
Awsome, really nice, sweet and funny, drives me from joy to the sadness that makes me cry from a minute to another, really beautiful *o* I' trying to finished today (today i've started to see it at the same time i'm downloading it xDD)
The Sadako thing is quite cute, but other than that, I think I like nothing else more. The story is so common and I think I've seen or read too much romance shoujo just like this. It was worth the read though (if you are bored). I stopped reading the manga but I'm buying the volumes just to collect and to kill time.
Kimi ni Todoke is definitely as series worth watching. The 25-episode season 1 is worth the time. the story it self is very moving. it's a mixture of drama, romance and comedy. the comedy and romance part is really cute and the drama is never forced. plus, Kazehaya Shota is one of my favorite heroes because he's seems to be the ideal guy but in reality he's not. the pairing Kazahaya x Sawako is totally cute because they both get nervous being together, etc.. x3 (saying this reminds me of Shuujin (from Bakuman.) saying that he likes couples like Saiko x Miho because they still get the can't-breath-being-in-the-same-room type of feeling. LOL.)
i just finished the 12-episode season 2 and it's definitely good though not as good as the 1st season. the 2nd season is full of their misunderstandings with the addition of Miura Kento (voiced by my fave seiyuu, Miyano Mamoru x3). the last few episodes were practically the best for me plus the cute, simple && unexpected confession of Sanada Ryu to Yoshida Chizuru. x3
Once the Anime gets into the story, it's stand-able. The first couple episodes may piss you off, but stick with me here! Overall, it's not half bad. The animation looks a bit like Honey & Clover, which coincidentally, I couldn't stand the first episode of that neither for some reason. ANYWAYS; This one is a simple love story, and judging by how it has a second season, then it shouldn't be that bad, right? Try it! Withstand the first episode or two, though! (Unless I'm just the weird one).
Kuronuma Sawako is always alone. Her classmates is afraid of her, because the rumors than she could curse people with
her eyes and that she could see ghosts. Her gloomy appearance and her nickname, Sadako (from the Ring, yeah) doesn't
helping at all. But deep inside, she just a normal sweet girl who only want to make friends. One day, her conversation
with Shouta Kazehaya--the most popular boy in her school, also her classmate--changes something insides her. She found a
new courage to change her life.
What can I say? PURE FLUFF AND CUTENESS <3 Watch it to heal your heart! I recommend it!
