First off, still no announcement/update of the second season of Kimi ni Todoke and I am pissed Production I.G! You better come clean or I’ll troll you… tabunn ne~ =P
When I first heard about the live-action movie (there were even talks of turning this into a dorama), I thought it to be a good sign for the franchise to get more attentions and sets of eyeballs watching for increased hype. Karuho Shiina has been one lucky mangaka to get popularity during a very short time. Hopefully, we would see more from her once she finished with Kimi ni Todoke. On a side note, those of you who are pining away after the first season, go read the manga NAO~ Chapter 46 was the best out of the whole series. I haven’t kyaaa’d and DAWWWW’d so much while reading a manga.

Thoughts: Looking at the available trailer and teasers, it’s quite clear that the storyline follows the first anime season or till chapter 24/27 of the manga, which has a chance of having an original ending. I’m now curious enough to actually give this a try because I was totally off live-action after trying out a J-dorama previously. The characters look likeable enough and something is better than nothing ne~?
Spoilers ahead; read only if you have watched anime/read manga. Show ▼
So, would look forward to this in September and seems like I’ll be getting a delightful double whammy on my birthday month with Supernatural’s sixth season and KnT movie. Till next time, Ja ne~
