Sawako KURONUMA main image

Her long, straight hair both earned her the nickname 'Sadako' and helped the already socially awkward girl become isolated from her classmates despite her best efforts to make friends. Sawako's polite, caring nature leads her to be easily taken advantage of, even by those who find her smile disturbing.

I can connect with Sawako on a very deep level. She was shy on account of never getting the oppertunity to release her full potiential as a person. People avoided her and even made fun of her. Her social awkwardness that resulted is real and believeable. It's not over the top and it's not a disguise for the cliche sassy-true-self routine. Her personality stays constant throughout, dispite being able to come out of her shell. Me and Sawako have been through similar things in terms of socializing, and people saying she needs to be more assertive honestly don't understand. It isn't that easy. You can't just buck up and face it like a champ. These feelings are imprinted on your mind, the very fiber of who you are, and to she's weak for being any less than assertive isn't fair. These are feelings that stay with you through out life. You feel, "if it was that way back then, why is it different now?" "If I make a mistake, things might go back to how they used to be." These are feelings of genuine fear. Feelings that if you screw up, no one will like you anymore. Human feelings. If one is left on their own long enough, avoided, verbally abused, and left utterly alone, once one begins to actually accumulate friends, they tend to never want them to leave. That should be a given. So, the mind set she had wasn't unreasonable. In fact, I think it was perfect for the purpose it was meant to serve. I'm not ashamed to say Kimi ni Todoke was the first anime to make me cry. It was the first anime I could connect to on such a deep level, and to see Sawako get what I didn't get by the end, it was nothing short of pure bliss. By the end, I was fit to burst with joy. Sawako was a fantastic character, and one that will always have special place in my heart.

Don't quite get why people call her frustrating. We have all seen or known a Sawako in our lives: Slinking through the halls praying every day would end without someone piling more on these regards she is very believable in her social akwardness. She just doesn't understand and has a hard time rationalising those feelings. Then to our amazement, some of them win as in Sawako's case. I love her characterization, it's so real.
