Kimi ni Todoke: From Me to You, Vol. 03 - Karuho Shiina Of course a rival has to appear in any shoujo manga. In this one, she comes as Kurumi, a beautiful girl whom Sawako quickly likes and admires. Kurumi behaves sweetly towards Sawako, when she is actually very jealous of her relationship with Kazehaya.

I still think Sawako is the cutest girl in a manga I read so far. Her expressions are very sweet, and she only has genuine feelings. When she hears the word 'friend' she is so moved. The same when someone praises her. As she is the most innocent girl in the manga, when Kurumi asked her to help her with Kazehaya I thought 'Oh no, here we go. She will be manipulated'. However, she says No! I am very happy! I hope she won't change her mind in the next volume...
