Kimi ni Todoke: From Me to You, Vol. 1 - Karuho Shiina This story is so sweet. I feel so sad for Sawako, she is such a nice girl! And she is being bullied by her classmates just because of her resemblance to the creepy girl of The Ring. Luckily, the most popular boy in school takes notice of her, and helps her to be more outgoing with her classmates. There were times where I feel so sorry for her, because she is such a sweet nice girl, who is unlucky but not depressed, like I would be if it were my case. At first I though Kazehaya was too 'smiley', but he grew up on me. He helped her so much.

And the artwork is so cute. Sawako is a really cute character.

This is the first dramatic shoujo I read, and I like it very much. Sawako is a wonderful character.

UPDATE: 10/3/2012: I have re-read the first volume, after what? 2 months? I am willing to re-read the whole manga again, cause it is THAT good. I love the story, the characters, the anime, the movie, even the soundtrack! Everything about Kimi ni Todoke is delicious, sweet, divine!

Highly, highly recommended.
