Kimi ni Todoke  
Login to add items to your list, keep track of your progress, and rate series!
Sawako Kuronuma is the perfect heroine... for a horror movie. With her jet-black hair, sinister smile and silent demeanor, she's often mistaken for the haunting movie character Sadako. But behind her scary facade is a very misunderstood teenager. Too shy to fit in, all she wants to do is make some friends. But when a popular boy in class befriends her, she's sure to make more than just that--she's about to make some enemies too!

In 2008 it won the Best Shoujo Manga award in the 32nd Annual Kodansha Manga Award. The series was also nominated for the first Manga Taisho awards in 2008.

Amazing manga - an original twist is put on some shoujo manga conventions and it's quite moving. Sadako's earnest character really make you want to glomp her-- I want to see more...! Worth reading, and worth buying.

And I don't think it's not a rip off of PGE like some people claim it is. For one, the focus and pacing of the stories are completely different. And even then, the protagonists are totally different in personality except for the creepiness. Well, I'm keeping this short but there are more things - read the manga and see for yourself. Don't be put off it because some people say it a cheap imitation or something like that.

I definitely recommend this manga. All the characters are so infinitely cute and their reactions are hilarious and adorable. I'm currently reading the manga and I am still able to get incredibly excited at the thought of watching the anime. The anime is so adorable as well and it's definitely something that you shouldn't miss. I recommend the manga as well as the anime. They are both amazing.

I love this one so much! The overall story is somewhat like "Perfect girl evolution" but i think it is lighter and cuter. The girl is also cuter and more adorable.I like the boy and the friends. A must read!

Its a great read. The blossoming romance between Sawako and Kazeyaha is the embodiment of innocence. If you are into romance thats sugary and sweet.
I'd definitely recommend this title.

Guys, I can understand why some of you would say it's a rip-off of PGE. It's because you're not even reading. =_=

I mean, COME ON. This is way WAY different than PGE. For one, PGE is more on the wacky comedy side, but this one is more on the lighthearted heartwarming *insert more compound-word adjectives along the same lines here* side.

What's more, this HAS A PLOT. And a fairly progressing one at that. I'm not saying PGE doesn't have a plot (well, if it didn't segue too much to other stuff, then what's left of the shredded plot would also progress well), but EACH CHAPTER I've seen in this story is actually essential to its plot, a fact that PGE notably does not exhibit.

I don't think it's right to judge this story to be terrible just because you THINK you've seen something like it before and you THINK it's a rip-off. (Don't get me wrong, I also like PGE and I'm not putting it down, but geez some people should really think before they go and accuse stories of being rip-offs. Pissed me off.)

And so to end this very long comment, I would like to say that this story is at the top of my reading list. And it's a VERY long reading list, if I may add. The characters are all incredibly lovable, even though I think the main girl lead has a very ideal personality. I definitely recommend this to anyone who would like a very heartwarming read.

I wish people would stop comparing this to other shoujo (and even shounen, for whatever reason) titles. Creating a completely original story now is harder than it sounds.

Kimi ni Todoke is a cute and refreshing manga. The premise of the story is similar to Wallflower, but the key difference lies with the protagonist's differing personalities. Unlike others in her position, Sawako does not have a traumatic past, and does not keep others at a distance/ignores everyone/emos in a corner. She actually makes an effort to make friends with her peers, one of the nice qualities about her.
Kazehaya is, just as she said, 100% refreshing. He's cute and fully capable of charming the shirt off someone's back, but not in a lewd sense, jeez. It's easy to see why he's popular, and not only for his boyish good looks. xD

Makes me sad people don't like this. I find it cute and sweet, and throughout reading it neither PGE or Angel Densetsu came to mind. Its not anything extraordinary that I can put into words, but even with all the manga that I've read, this one is always at the top of my rereading list (only 4 chapters out though ^^;). It is really light and 'refreshing'.
I suggest people try it out, and don't compare it. ;)
