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.

I love this manga! It isn't the most exciting or world shaking plot-wise but it's one of those clean stories that just makes you feel good and want to be a better person or fall in love too. Kazehaya, the main boy is so refreshingly clean, kind and unprejudiced it's a nice break from all the perverts, delinquents, and internally messy love interests that dominate other romance mangas (although sometimes those can be fun too). The main girl is charming too in her own way, though her character type is a little more common--shy, pure, and unerringly hard working. What I like is that she starts out with nothing (she scares everyone around her and can't communicate at all) and grows from there. All the misunderstandings are a little frustrating sometimes and you just want to yell at them, "Just say it strait! Stop beating around the bush!!" but it doesn't make me like it less, just makes me want them to get through it more. Overall, I'd say this story is wonderful if you're feeling lonely or need something to cheer you up.

One of the most cute and touching mangas

This manga is so incredibly cute. What makes this manga so good and so much better than all of the other shoujo mangas out there is that this manga is not a typical high school, romance story. The manga seems to focus more on the friendships that are created between the main character and the people she meets throughout the story than on the boy-girl relationship that is developed somewhat later in the story. This is a very heart warming story about the importance of friendships. I liked it a lot because it emphasized the importance of friendships in high school more than the importance (although I don't think it's important at all) of having a boyfriend. A read that will definately put a smile on your face.

Refreshing, but mood of story is getting a bit stagnant...

The story is indeed cute and refreshing and it's nice to read some parts over and over again, I (read: loved) how naive Sawako is and how she tries to fit into the crowd and I (read: liked) how the mangaka showed that Kazehaya isn't the typical perfect bishie you can find in some other shoujo manga.

But the overall mood of the story is getting a quite a bit stagnant thus getting too boring; after chapter 46 I didn't anticipate anything much in this series any longer. Also, I kind of agree with the comment below mine - the story is run by misunderstandings, but it doesn't matter anyway.

It would've been nice if the manga would just be cut short but who knows, the mangaka might just have some plot tricks hidden in her sleeves. bigrazz

A girl who will forever be shy, dull and misunderstood

Kimi Ni Todoke is about a shy girl who becomes even more introvert after people keep calling her Sadako, named after the girl from The Ring, the horror movie.

Because of this, Sawako can't seem to make any friends, plus she's incredibly shy (and awkward) as well. She admires the guy sitting next to her in class, who's the complete opposite of her; he's charming and has a lot of friends, always laughing and talking to people. Kazehaya however, becomes the first person to talk to her and remember her real name (Sawako, not Sadako). It's pretty obvious that they're gonna end up together.

Only the way it takes for them to end up together is extremely annoying. It is in Sawako's nature to misunderstand anything being said to her, and to apologize frequently for her (non)actions. This manga runs on misunderstandings. In fact, the biggest and most stupid misunderstanding was:
Spoiler (highlight to view)
When Kazehaya tried to confess to her that he liked her, but she misunderstands and thinks he only meant as a friend. She tried to say the same as well, that she likes him - but he also misunderstands and thinks she meant 'as a friend'.

That was the dumbest plot twist ever, it made me yell out loud, and angry that the mangaka thought this was clever and funny. No it wasn't, it was highly annoying!

You'd think that a slice of life manga like this would feature character development, to turn the shy and innocent, and very naive girl into a more confident and outspoken girl, who likes herself at the end. No such thing happens, it's why it's not even one of the categories here on MangaUpdates. That's what really annoyed me about the series. Sure Sawako ends up with friends, but only through the actions of someone else, but not through her own actions. She never does anything, she stays the same girl in the beginning as in the end, only with more friends and a crush. She doesn't change, and that truly annoys me to see her still getting into misunderstandings so late in the manga. Same goes for her love interest Kazehaya, who seems to stay the same as well, only paying more attention to Sawako.

In fact, I didn't like both of these characters. Sawako is dense, really stupid and very naive. Kazehaya seems charming, but he hasn't got much going for him either.

I find it hilarious that another reviewer said this manga has a unique storyline and realistic situations. Really? What storyline is that? It's about how a girl and boy can get into countless of misunderstandings before they finally get together, nothing unique about it. Also, realistic? Have you read inside the spoiler up there? What the heck is so realistic about that? It was so unrealistic it made me stop reading. I understand many people love this manga to bits, but they shouldn't pretend this is unique or realistic. There's nothing realistic about Sawako's character.

If you're like me and hate shy girls who will never ever change and get into countless of misunderstandings because she's so naive it hurts - I definitely don't recommend this manga. If you love shoujo in general, sure go ahead and read it, you'll probably love it.

Unfortunately, I didn't.

It feels like KnT must come to an end soon. In fact, I hope that it does. It's such a good manga, I'd just like to see a couple of the side romances play out and for it to wrap up, rather than keep on going for ever by inventing stupid twists.

This is probably and will continue to be my favorite manga And anime series. All the characters are so adorable and lovable. Sawako and Shouta are made for each other. Even the side characters are entertaining. Can't wait to see what happens next biggrin

even the anime is one chapter one episode unlike other manga to anime,eg.Kuragehime..and ppl's rumours and belief make the story line..nothing else...

btw, as per this manga, praise a guy long enough, he will fall for you- you should act his absolute admiring fan then all is set in your love future cool

the manga is full of gratefulness and becomes annoying after a point...

It's really good. Sawako is very sweet and lovable and someone told me that this is the only slice-of-life manga that they enjoyed. It makes you feel good, although these last few chapters feel like dragging because the conflict is resolved and the plot has gone missing IMO.

You can't do anything else than to love this manga! I really love the characters, but sometimes I wish Sawako would just step up and feel confident. Because she's cute, fun and beautiful!
