Description
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.

A girl who will forever be shy, dull and misunderstood   
Rating: 4.0 / 10.0

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 thank-yous....it 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!

feel-good manga

This manga is soooooooo cute >____< kind of a typical plot but soooo cute. For once, the guy is a nice guy smile and the girl is a cute girl (not tooo dumb but very naiive haha). I like that the guy is just a nice guy (popular...as usual) but he's not the best in everything. And her friends are really cute too =) I cried a little when they had a sweet moment when they defended her. It's very sweet..one of those feel-good mangas. Definitely not filled with angst, although you do have those cliched moments where they're about to confess and then the most stupid things happen. It has a slice of life vibe to it, very light read, I would recommend reading it over the course of a few weeks (after it's done scanlating) because I read this a long time ago and have already forgotten most of the events, which are worth remembering!

Sawako is just too pure, cute and innocent! When i read Kimi Ni Todoke I feel such pure happiness! The art is pretty good, though not the best...So if you want something light and happy with just a few twists to keep the plot interesting, well this manga is definitely for you!

A very likeable and satsifying read that will keep you smiling throughout. I can't describe with words the appeal of this manga , so if you haven't read this I urge you to give this manga a try regardless of your taste.
