point taken, as I'm not an expert in Japanese culture and their demographics and things.
In the philippines this kind of romance wouldn't be unusual, since a lot in this country is still highly conservative (given that the dominant religion is Roman Catholic).
Shoujo's tend to be a tad bit too romantic anyway but I think KnT is doing it in an acceptable way
Chapter 74 raws
What I really like about Kimi ni Todoke is the focus on friendship as well as romance. I loved how Sawako and Kurumi have become closer and are at a point where they can naturally open up to each other.
This is what I like about Kimi ni Todoke, as most Shoujo manga it is all rose-coloured love - you fall in love and it's happy ever after, but KnT gives a realistic aspect while still being innocent (although sometimes unrealistic considering how dense Sawako was initially). But you see different people's personalities - their approaches to their relationships and friendships.
I wonder when the series will end. It would be interesting to see what they do after high school but you get to the point there must be an end to their relationship development.
