Welcome everyone to my first ever anime review on this website! Yay. So to top it off I picked a very romantic, first love type anime that a lot of you guys out there might like ( if you are into romantic shows like that.)
Okay, Let start!
Plot of Kimi ni Todoke
Kimi ni Todoke follows a girl named Sawako Kironuma. Sawako has always been feared and misunderstood because of her appearance; rumors around school report that she can see ghosts and curse people. However, despite her ominous appearance, she is actually a sweet and timid girl who only longs to be able to make friends and be liked by everyone else. When her idol, the popular boy Kazehaya, begins talking with her, everything changes. She finds herself in a new world, making new friends and talking to different people, and she can’t thank Kazehaya enough for giving her these opportunities. Slowly, but surely, a sweet love blossoms between the two as they overcome circumstances and obstacles that stand in their way.
Rumors suck. It always destroy somebody’s life. In the begin of the show you might feel sorry for her because she is trying her best to make friends and talk to someone but people keep running away from her leaving her all by herself ( I’m surprised that her parents don’t know about the rumors). She is really nice girl and likes to help people in need. Lucky she gains friends in the end.
Characters of Kimi ni Todoke
Sawako “Sadako” Kuronuma
Sawako is a shy, honest girl in search of friends,but her resemblance to the horror film character Sadako Yamamura makes this difficult. Her shy and modest nature prevents her from correcting people’s misconceptions, to the point that most of the school believes her name is, in fact, “Sadako.”
Kazehaya is Sawako’s outgoing and friendly classmate, and also the person that Sawako looks up to. Kazaehaya’s popularity is so widespread that during middle school, the many girls that liked him had to form a “Kazehaya is Everyone’s” alliance in order to maintain some level of peace among his admirers; more than half of these girls now attend his high school. Kazehaya falls in love with Sawako shortly after meeting her.
Ayane is a close friend of Sawako. She is the arguably the most mature of the group and she has a boyfriend in college as well as having her ears pierced multiple times.
Yoshida is another close friend of Sawako. She is the tomboy of the group, and she even admits this when Ryu calls them brothers, where she argues about who is the older rather than that she is not a ‘brother’.
Ryu is also Sawako’s friends. He is quiet most of the time and rarely talks, but still can communicate well with Sawako, as they both don’t talk much anyways. Ryu and Kazehaya was both on the baseball team in middle school and was friends since then. Chizuru and Ryu are childhood friends but Ryu has a crush on her too and does not deny it.
Kazuichi “Pin” Arai
Aria is a substitute from their homeroom class becausse their homeroom teacher got sick over the summer holidays while getting help from Sawako. ( there goes the rumors again) His nickname in school is Pin but Sawako, being polite, calls him Arai-sensei. He is also into baseball and knew Ryu and Kazehaya since middle school.
The Art of Kimi ni Todoke
The art in the show is pretty normal for a school life type of show. But at certain moments of the show you can see the background with shine and sparkle or the art would change to a water color painting. It makes seen really pretty and nice.
Sawako was unwanted from everyone and everyone is scared of her to having friends, being popular and everyone wants to be her friends. Its a sweet and kinda slow anime to watch but i think you might enjoy it just like i did. ( I even brought the manga)
Overall Grade: 7.4/10
