Kimi ni Todoke: From Me to You

31 JAN

Really have to say that I am not a fan of this series.  I have two friends who absolutely love it, and both are big manga readers whose opinions I respect and appreciate, but for me, this series just completely missed the mark.  There was nothing original about it, and having read Wallflower, I was really disappointed with how much Sawako seems to be a carbon copy of the Sunako from Wallflower, even down to the nickname.  The difference?  Wallflower's lead female is much more interesting, not so mousy, and Wallflower has a better storyline, in my opinion. 

I think this would be a great series for people who haven't read a lot of shojo already.  The art is good but if you've ever read any manga that's about a shy girl who likes a boy, you're not likely to find too much that's new here.

Yeah..I read a volume of Wallflower and I read this and thought, "This REALLY reminds me of Wallflower!" Weird, huh? To me it seems average, but I'm willing to read another volume of it just to make sure!
