Anime Review: Sukitte Ii na yo



For 16 years, Tachibana Mei has had no boyfriend and couldn’t even make friends. One day she accidentally injures Kurosawa Yamato, the most popular boy in school, but for some reason Yamato takes interest in her and one-sidedly declares her his friend. He even kisses Mei to protect her from a stalker. This story based on the hit manga by rising star Hazuki Kanae paints a realistic story of first love.

This anime is insanely cute, the way Yamato loves Mai is almost unbelievable. He would do anything for her. I love how realistic the story was… I believe that a lot of people have experienced something like what happened in the Anime. I also believe that it could happen to anyone. It’s not like any other shoujo I’ve seen. The downside of the anime is that… Well it’s just my opinion, I think the main idea is weak, like… its exactly what the title is called. I didn’t like how obvious it was. I also didn’t like the fact that Mai didn’t make any effort… Don’t get me wrong it’s cute how Yamato is trying so hard for her, though I just think she should’ve met him half way… And if you wanna argue that it’s her personality, I agree but I don’t approve. ;p

So if your looking for a very good shoujo to watch Sukitte Ii na yo, is the obvious choice.

Overall Rate: 6/10
