The manga’s narrative revolves around Sawako Kuronuma, affectionately nicknamed Sadako due to her long, ebony hair and fair complexion, which often leads people to misjudge her as gloomy.
However, her life takes an unexpected turn when she forms a deep and heartwarming connection with the popular Shōta Kazehaya, eventually blossoming into a beautiful romance.
Karuho Shiina initiated the main “Kimi ni Todoke” manga series in Shueisha’s Bessatsu Margaret shōjo magazine back in 2006, and it concluded its heartwarming journey in November 2017. The 30th and final compiled book volume was published by Shueisha in March 2018. Shiina continued to delight fans with the “Kimi ni Todoke Bangaihen: Unmei no Hito” (Kimi ni Todoke Spinoff: Soulmate) manga, serialized in Bessatsu Margaret from April 2018 until May 2022.
This beloved series has consistently maintained its status among Japan’s top-selling manga, boasting a remarkable circulation of 36 million copies, including digital editions. Viz Media has been instrumental in bringing the manga to English-speaking audiences, releasing the 30th volume in December 2018.
For those eagerly awaiting the anime adaptation, NIS America has previously released both seasons of the television series on home video. Additionally, a live-action film adaptation graced Japanese theaters in 2010. More recently, Netflix introduced a live-action series adaptation of “Kimi ni Todoke” on March 30th.
