“Kimi no Todoke” first began in 2005 as a shōjo romance manga by Karuho Shiina. Published by Shueisha in Bessatsu Margaret, the series had a total of 30 volumes released before ending in November 2017. During its run, the manga gained the Best Shōjo Manga award in the 32nd Annual Kodansha Manga Award which was held in 2008. During the same year, the series was nominated for the first Manga Taisho awards.

In the course of the series’ run, it has gained two light novel series and were released by Shueisha. The first is under their Cobalt imprint and has a total of 15 volumes released since its publication in August 2007 and is written by Kanae Shimokawa.

It was in October 2009 that the anime adaptation of the series made its debut. Produced by Production I.G., the series ran for a total of 25 episodes before ending in March 2010. The series was directed and written by Hiro Kaburagi, the director behind the “My Little Monster” anime.

“Kimi ni Todoke,” tells the story of a misunderstood high school girl named Kuronuma Sawako. While sweet with a timid demeanor, due to her resemblance to the ghost girl from “The Ring,” she is often mistaken for having malicious behavior. This results in her not only receiving the nickname “Sadako”, but also being isolated from her classmates.

Longing to make friends and live a normal life, she is naturally drawn to Kazehaya Shouta, the most popular guy in class. With his “100% refreshing” personality Sawako forms a great admiration for him. As such, when he begins talking to her, her wish for friends may not be far off; there may be even more for her in the future.
