Reviews Kimi ni Todoke

  • Farhin
    Please do not read this review if you have not the previous volumes of Kimi Ni Todoke edit: I guess I should mention that this volume lost a star because it was little slower than the first 3 (personal preference really).So volume 4 gives readers a more blatant insight into Ume Kurumizawa aka Kurumi's true colours. Kurumi schemes and creates convoluted plans to keep girls out of Kazehaya's way and her latest victim is our much loved protagonist, ...

    As with the previous installment, this volume focuses more on Sawako's relationships with her newly acquired female friends, but toward the end we also see progress in her feelings for Kazehaya. I am really enjoying how unusual this protagonist's though process is. This enhanced by contrast with Kurumi, who is stereotypically "devious popular girl".Musical pairing (suggested by the author): Sakura Merry Men.

    5/10Me ha gustado lo poquito que llevo de esta serie y aun habiendo visto la película y sabiendo que la serie no es novedosa ni espectacular, tengo intriga, por ver como evoluciona todo. Lo poquito que he leído yo ha sido muy, muy enternecedor. Eso es en lo que esta serie más destaca. No es que sea una joya inolvidable, no es de esas que te marcan, te estremecen la piel y se quedan con tu corazón, pero si es bonita y la he disfrutado (eso sí...

    No soporto a Kurumi. De verdad. Me gusta menos que subir 100 escaleras. Y Chizu y Ayane me parecen tan geniales. Una super ingenua y la otra tan inteligente... ¡Son lo mejor!
  • Ana Luisa
    Se cierra el arco del volumen pasado. Sawako sigue mostrando su inocencia y dulzura a una nueva rival. La historia de amor va avanzando lento pero de una manera tan tierna que claro que quieres averiguar cómo es que nuestros protagonistas sabrán de sus sentimientos. Un volumen con buen cierre e interesante.P.D. Las amigas de Sawako son la onda :3
  • Delaney
    I want more Sawaka and Kazehaya alone moments!
  • Veronica
    Questo manga è proprio tutto ciò che uno shojo dovrebbe essere.
  • Yue
    I think this one was the weakest, so the rating should really be 3 stars and a half.The story is still cute, and I still adore Sawako. On the other hand, she makes me nervous. She really is the cutest girl, a girl without negatives feelings, who cannot think badly of anyone. Kurumi is the typical bitch. She deceives Sawako making her believer that both of them are friends, when in reality, Kurumi is acting behind her back, trying to keep Hazehaya...

    Out of everything so far I think this volume has best shown Sawako's capacity for kindness. When I first started the series I thought that the majority of her actions seemed to stem simply from how clueless she is when it comes to other people and what they expect of her. However, this volume really shows what she's like as a person. An adorable former social outcast to be sure, Sawako is also an incredibly compassionate character no matter the c...
  • Jamie (TheRebelliousReader)
    2 stars. Least favorite volume so far. It went all out with the cliche of ‘seemingly nice girl is actually not so nice because she is also in love with main character’s love interest’. It’s a terrible trope and I wish it wasn’t so frequently used in shojo manga stories. It especially didn’t work here because Sawako is such a sweet and caring person that she just didn’t react the way you would expect her to and that was actually real...
  • Miss Ryoko
    UGH!! I want to throttle Kurumi but at the same time I feel sorry for her...because she's a teenager and that's how they are. Plus, it is also hard to see the person you like so much be interested in someone else...but I hate her for being a b*tch to my Sawako!! (Haha, I feel exactly like Chizu and Ayane! Speaking of them, OH MY GOD, I ♥ ADORE ♥ THEM! They are so fabulous!!)Once again...praise praise praise for this series!! Love the characte...
  • Hannah
    Sigh. The entrance of the standard shoujo cliche - the pretty girl who likes our male lead and would use any kind of dirty, underhanded method to drive Sawako and Kazehaya apart.The only upside is that it doesn't work, but it's annoying that Shiina Karuho had to use this at all.

    Chapter 15 was my favorite. The misunderstanding between Kurumi and Pin was hilarious. What excellent writing and pacing.
  • Morel Dei
    One word: Pin.
  • Francesca
    There are many things that I enjoyed in this volume and in the whole series so far. Here are a few: I liked how fast paced it was, how quickly Kurumi's plan came out instead of the usual long lasting angst of mangas. I like that we get to see Sawako's flaws and Kurumi's point of view too, that it's not a black and white situation in which we are made to clearly cheer for the protagonist. For my teenage-self it would have been good to see this, as...
  • Lou (BooksAreAWayOfLife)
    Because I've been struggling to read recently, so I decided to pick up some of the mangas that I've been collecting. I find them the easiest to read so I'm hoping that this will push me out of my reading slump. Plus, even if I am super tired I can still get through quite a bit of a manga before I have to put it down. I can imagine that until the end of October a lot of my read books will end up being mangas.Volume 4 of Kimi Ni Todoke continues ri...
  • Adriana Bonilla
    This was one of the most cute volumes Ive read this far. It was full of emotions and confessions. Sawako, chizu and Ayane only grew closer to each other, they keep finding ways and reasons to defend each other. Shota was the absolute most adorable character ever, his ability to blush and feel emotions right away was the most beautiful thing ever. He is one of the totally honest kids that u know are incapable of lying and will show how they feel i...

    Pobre Sawako, eso de tener amigas como Kurumi como que no aplica. Para nada.En fin, parece que Kazehaya por fin se pondrá las pilas con la relación, haber cómo termina eso.
  • Abbie
    Ugh I hate this school. But the tiny grandpas are funny. UGGGHI hate the students in Sadako's class. I wonder who's the head of the gossip club spreading rumors about the poor girl.
  • Cecelia
    Sawako is still my favorite and deserves the world.
  • DonutKnow
    The jelly is real! XD But I have to say, what is the logic in telling a girl, who pretty much hates you, that you like the same guy? Still, I love Kazehaya, his reactions are so authentic.
  • B. Jean
    There's something so sweet and honest about shoujo manga. I love it.
  • R
    Awesome volume! The characters are so great and you can feel how they are feeling.
  • Estefany
    Sawako no te dejes de Kurumi... Kazehaya es demasiado bello.

    gue mulai simpati sama karakter kurumisebenarnya benci banget sama karakter cewek manipulatif macam kurumitapi di komik ini cara sawako menghadapi kurumi lucu banget XDgue mulai melihat sisi kurumi yang berbedamembaca komik ini inget salah satu ucapan salim a fillah kalau orang yang menyakiti orang lain itu sebenarnya memiliki luka yang belum sembuh, dan bukannya menyembuhkan lukamereka berpikir membuat orang lain terluka akan membuat mereka terb...

    This review is applicable for Kimi ni Todoke: From Me to You Vol. 3 and Vol. 4*SPOILERS*Sawako is starting to starting to interact with her classmates more. Her classmates are beginning to befriend her. Even the most popular girl in school, Kurumi, wants to be her friend. Sawako’s friendship with Kurumi blossoms rapidly, but there is a lot more to this friendship than just fun and games. Much of Volume 3 is just a set up for the events that tak...

    Another 3 star rating for Kimi ni todoke (vol. 4 this time)Thought and Plot Here comes Kurumi's true colours! What a b*tch! Called it! Kurumi was the one (view spoiler)[who started the rumors and is (hide spoiler)]trying to keep Sawako and Kazehaya apart. Sawako, who remains true to form, believes the best of Kurumi until she literally tells her how much she hates her.... despite that, Sawako is kind to her and thanks Kurumi for telling her and h...
