Unlike her facial expressions, she yearns to make friends and live as a normal student. Gradually, she starts to affect those around her, including Kazehaya-kun...

Re: [Shoujo] Kimi ni Todoke

this manga series if actually very very fun...cute...light...and sweet...i'd recommend everyone to read it...seriously...go read it~~it's really good...
Sawako is a really nice girl who has been misunderstood because of her incapabilities to bring her thoughts forward...well...also cuz she can't quite "voluntarily" use her facial muscles from time-to-time :)~
the author has just recently returned from giving birth~~so the series are back in motion again~~ <3 i believe the most current chapter is 38~~and 39 was just released a while ago...so i'm looking forward to the climax....cuz yes...the climax is coming...and i'm thinking it's going to end soon...:(

Re: [Shoujo] Kimi ni Todoke by Shiina Karuho

No, I hope it doesn't end soon! It's only 9 volumes :( Not wanting to spoil myself I will take your word for it.

There is a "real" feel to the characters, they seem like people I knew in high school. So much of the plot, and the way each arc resolves, feels like something that could happen to anybody.

Here are the color pages for chapter 40. The cover of Betsuma I used in my first post was the most recent issue.

Re: [Shoujo] Kimi ni Todoke by Shiina Karuho

The anime seems to have caught on with a lot of people, it's currently the most active of the new anime threads. Hopefully some of the new fans will give the manga a try!

Chapter 21 is out!

Re: [Shoujo] Kimi ni Todoke by Shiina Karuho

i'm actually very thankful that the productions was done by I.G. Productions...they tend to reserve the original "flavour" of the mangaka~~ :)...
[for those who doesn't know wut i mean...think about Fairy Tail's manga and compare it with the "obscured" look with the anime version...or Tsubasa Resevoir Chronicles manga by CLAMP <3...and compare that w/ it's anime counterpart...]

i read chpt-39...which was great...but Shinna-sensei just really knows how to grab ur attention and put u on the edge of the seat...sometimes i kina hate her for doing that tho...*waka*~

Re: [Shoujo] Kimi ni Todoke by Shiina Karuho

Shojo is always a good way to take a break from explosions :)

When you've caught up make sure to watch the anime, it's magnificent!

Re: [Shoujo] Kimi ni Todoke by Shiina Karuho

I'm still reading volume 4 and will catch up soon. Kurumi is one of my favorite characters in any shojo manga. She's completely two faced, one minute shes all smiles and nice to everyone and then in a split second she turns into this rude and scheming character only Sawako see. I'm glad it's getting a live action movie. To bad I will have to wait many years to see it subbed. :scry

Re: [Shoujo] Kimi ni Todoke by Shiina Karuho

I love this manga! Really great story and characters. I'm in love with Sawako, she's so cute and kinda reminds me of my younger self when I was so shy... :D

The anime is a great adaptation, I'm in love with the opening and ending songs. And... the seiyu (Hirano Aya) of Kurumi is the same of Reira (NANA)! I just knew it when I heard her voice.

Anyways... waiting for next chapter. Amazing series!

Re: [Shoujo] Kimi ni Todoke by Shiina Karuho

Chapter 33 is out! :nuts

According to Mango Scans, the next chapter will be out sometime in the second week of February. That seems far too long after the cliffie this chapter left us with! ;___; (I've been so spoiled lately with all the releases coming out so quickly :darn)

Is Kazehaya finally going to confess to Sawako? God, I hope so! And Miura better not get in the way, either! :shakefist

Chapter 33 was a really, really good one overall. I especially loved all the Yano/Chizu stuff. They continue to be my favorite characters (although I really like them all). The dynamic between them is just perfect. And Chizu FINALLY realized that Kazehaya likes Sawako! The shock on her face at this realization was just priceless..... and then she almost blurts it out for everyone to hear. Thank god Yano was there to muzzle her. :XD

Ryu doesn't beat around the bush either when asking Kazehaya about Sawako (just another reason he and Chizu are a perfect match <3). And even Pin knows everything! :XD

Can't wait until the next chapter!

[kaiten]still so far behind. damn this new group and their productivity :([/kaiten]
[goods]Don't listen to Kaiten, Mango Scans. Keep up the good work! :D[/goods]

Re: [Shoujo] Kimi ni Todoke by Shiina Karuho

A lovely manga, a little different to the rest, where the girl has more of a horror kinda look. The characters are very simple and the story's realistic, instead of the usual over-exaggeration you may get from other stories. You won't get the typical kind of cute girl trying her best to get most popular guy or anything of the sort. Instead, Sawako tries her best to mix in with the rest of the group. The situations the characters get into are also very cute at times.

So it's definitely a must read. Anyway, I can't wait to see what happens next!

Nope. The manga is still ongoing in Japan. That's why we have it labeled with the "Ongoing" prefix. ;)

And I love the anime adaptation, too! You (and everyone else :tem) should come over and discuss it with the rest of us here: http://mangahelpers.com/forums/showthread.php?t=54209 :amuse
