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.

What did you do in high school?   
Rating: 9.0 / 10.0

You follow Sawako and her friends for 3 years. The ending mimics that fact, as in it doesn't really feel like an end. And it's not, it's "just" the end of high school. 3 years. Make friends, find a boyfriend, find your path in life, live. 3 years of Sawako's life in a manga (with some chapters devoted to the side characters). It's a sweet and slow manga, but fitting. I wished Ryuu had more screen time though (I really like he!).

The relationships and the friendships are relatable (in their own way). They/it cover a large group of people.

The last year you are following them, I felt the plot and pacing got quicker, which I didn't appreciate. It felt like a lot was going on in that last year, which didn't need to be there, for the main couple (aka way too much side character information, which didn't need to be there. Especially when they don't have all that much screen time in the first 2 years).

Should have ended once the climax, the plot, is over

I loved this series as it was unique in its own way. The romance can be described as touching, hilariously awkward, and sweet. With that said, now I feel the author is dragging the story which is killing the series. The author is delivering a reality effect onto this which to me, is really boring. I used to be eager to read whenever a new chapter is out. I even bought the volumes. But now I find the lack of incentive to continue reading...I'm at the ch 90s...well, I'm considering dropping this and just remember up to the point of them confessing. End. I recommend Stop reading after the two main couple got together bc now it's no longer hilarious and the refreshing touches are gone. It's quite stagnated...dull...right now. Used to be a 9 for me, but now it's 6.5.

A Good Manga

I really really loved this manga at first, but then it got so sad, and I can't really bear the sadness, so I ended up sorta dropping it. Yet I still come back every now and then, can't seem to lave it alone in the end. I recommend it very much! It's a very good manga I think! So if you can handle a lot of heartaches definitely read, I can'tů. :s

At chapter 90

I picked up this manga when it was already 90 chapters in. Had I started earlier in the run, I think this would have gotten me down quickly because there were whole dozens of chapters where no one seemed to move forward (like a certain other manga I can think of ::cough cough:: Fairy Tail ::cough cough:smile, but since I could read two whole years of their relationships all in one block, it was very enjoyable.

Now that I've caught up and things are at an emotional peak, we'll see how I handle the updates. smile But, regardless of that, the romance is sweet, if a little dense (though it fits the characters, innocent, dense, and self-loathing as they may be), and the daily life can be quite interesting, though we mainly hit the holiday-high-points.

Pin is a great teacher. You don't think that early on, but he's an amazing teacher. And that's coming from a teacher.

This manga is really slow-paced so those who hate slow-paced story or romance..then I do not recommend this manga to you. At first I wasn't really interested,but when I kept reading it, I really enjoyed it although I feel like the mangaka is dragging this for too long. I think the mangaka should wrap it up now..

Slow (and that's what's good about it)

Well, it's the first Shoujo I--being a guy--really pick up and dig into the Shoujo world. The story is slow, and I can tell, even if I don't read that many Shoujo's, that it is far slower than other series of its kind.

But I think that is a good thing.

Having read some more Shoujo's, I can tell that the characteristic of this type is that the story is usually not realistic; the relationship developments between protagonists are usually too fast, hence making them unrealistic, which might not really matter because we don't need them to be 'real' as long as they can make us giggle--a job Shoujo's do.

So if someone wonders why this slow thing catches on, I will simply say to them that it is way more realistic with the slowness. The slowness is what makes this series unique. Well, you may argue, but personally I don't think people develop such deep emotion as love that easily as seen in the other series.

I'm not saying this manga doesn't do its job as a Shoujo though. It makes me, and likely anyone who reads it, giggle and blush indeed. Even though the late story, as being published now, is not as good as before, it still deserves 9 out of 10 from me. Please don't make it too long or else it will become another manga I'm sad about.

Cute and Innocent

It's a somewhat painfully slow romance, but it's worth it. One of those extremely rare shoujo mangas where none of the characters are annoying and I don't want to punch anyone in the face. It's a nice feeling hahah THEIR LOVE IS JUST SO INNOCENT AND CUTE <3 it doesn't have those annoying characters, useless drama, and it's not overly cliched

It's worth reading!

Lately this goes downhill.
It had drama, comedy, sweetness, a goal/plot, simply what a slice-of-life needs. Well it is common, when people get together, that the goal/plot changes into staying together or problems etc.
Now we have close to zero drama, "comedy" that isn't very funny and well repetitive. The plot diminishes, there is no goal anymore, things just happen (christmas, birthdays), with no real change to the situation. Everyone is happy to be together, and shy and... wait isn't this the same as a while ago?
I have seen manga that can run on sweetness and cuteness, this isn't one of them.

My advice:
Read this, stop when you are getting annoyed, because let's face it: it won't get any better.

Once was a typical but good and popular shoujo. It's getting old so look for something new. - 8.5/10

Wished the lead characters were Chizuru and Ryuu instead

Really loved that pair. There's a lot more chemistry going on between the two in a matter of chapters than Sawako and Shouta in multiple volumes. They definitely make a sexier and more romantic couple as compared to their fluffy and pretentious counterparts (leads). Ayane and 'Kurumi' are pretty cool babes as well.

Haha, Kazehaya and Sawako are both so innocent and cute- sometimes I wish they would stop blushing and just get on with it! XD This manga is very sweet and endearing, and I really love all of the characters!
