First Look: Kimi ni Todoke


First Look and PV for Production I.G.’s shoujo anime, Kimi ni Todoke.

Story: [Wiki]


Sawako Kuronuma, called Sadako by her classmates for her resemblance to the character from Ring, has always been feared and misunderstood because of her appearance. There are rumors that Sawako can see ghosts and curse people. But when her idol, popular boy Kazehaya, begins talking with her, everything changes. She finds herself in a new world, trying to make friends and talking to different people and she can’t thank Kazehaya enough for giving her these opportunities. Slowly, but surely, a sweet love is blossoming between the two as they will overtake any circumstance or clear obstacles in their way.

Judging from the trailer, it looks so freaking amazing already! I hope this will turn out to be one of the fantastic series this Fall along with some others, well, I’m sure it will. The manga won “Best Shoujo Manga” on the 32nd Annual Kodansha Manga Award on 2008. Also, I’m having very good expectations from it since Production I.G. [Eden of the East] is making it. SAWAKO is soooo cute!!!!!!!!!!!!!!111 And Mamiko Noto voicing her is pure bliss. And Kazehaya-kuuun!!! <333

Ugh, this reeks of awesomeness already. Can’t wait to watch it nao~!! Catch Kimi ni Todoke on October 6!

    I wondered at first if Mamiko Noto was a good fit for Sawako since I’ve just seen images and not really read the manga or anything. But the PV really got rid of any doubts I have~

    The PV in general just makes me really excited for the anime. Ah~ I can’t wait. It’s been way too long since there’s been a new good shoujo anime~
