While living her life this way contentedly, she meets Tanaka-kun again, but he now goes under the name of Mabuchi Kou.
The series was also nominated for the first Manga Taisho awards in 2008. Kimi ni Todoke is one of the most popular shoujo manga, don’t you think?
Because of that, it has been made into a 2-season anime and a live action.
Because she’s cute, she was ostracized by her female friends in junior high, and because of a misunderstanding, she couldn’t get her feeling across to the one boy she has always liked, Tanaka-kun.
Now in high school, she is determined to be as unladylike as possible so that her friends won’t be jealous of her.
Having no experience in romance, the vibrant Ninako curiously explores the meaning of what "love" really is, and is surprised to feel a colorful range of emotions as she grows closer to the school heartthrob, the quiet yet gentle Ren, who also happens to be involved in a longtime relationship.
