KIMI NI TODOKE : From me to You tells a story that became the blueprints for high school romance in Japan.


High school is a time of transition from innocent childhood to adult life. It is an emotional roller coaster of a journey, with worries about friends, crushes, the future, and more. And there are hurtful experiences along the way. But that’s exactly why remembering your high school years brings back great and sad feelings, both bubbling up all at once. Read on for more about this beautifully drawn manga ‘From Me To You’ that everyone can empathise with.

The main character is a plain and shy girl, Sawako Kuronuma. She is shunned by her classmates who call her Sadako, the ghost of the girl with straight long black hair from the Japanese horror film series ‘Ring’.

But even a girl like her can fall in love.

And the guy that ends ups up becoming her boyfriend is none other than the most popular guy in her year, Shota Kazehaya.

Enjoy reading about how these polar opposite characters end up a couple in this manga!

The 26th volume has been published as this story now reaches its 10th year! It has also been turned into both an anime series and a film, and its popularity doesn’t seem to be fading anytime soon.

The reason that this story is avidly read by many, lies in the fine portrayal of the feelings of each of the characters featured in the story. The delicate representation of the characters has the power to pull readers right back to when they too went through similar feelings and worries as the characters in the story.

Readers follos as the story between Sawako and Shota is unveiled. But that’s not all there is to it. We also see Sawako’s love for her friends, and her friendship with her would be rival, another girl who is in love with Shota. As readers we are taken on a ride experiencing the feelings and emotions of all the characters that we meet in the story. This story places great value on the fact that in real life just like in the fictional world of the manga or anime, everyone has their own story.

At the start of the series, Sawako was in her first year at high school, and now in the latest edition she is in her third year at high school awaiting the next step to go to college. In the latest edition Sawako is filled with hope for the future, but is also anxious and conflicted by the prospect of being separated from the people who have become so important to her once she starts college.
