As many of you already know, the manga Suki-tte ii na yo (originally drawn by Kanae Hazuki) got an anime adaption by ZEXCS and started airing on the 6th October this year!!!
Tachibana Mei (Kayano Ai) is a quite and anti-social 16-year old high school girl, who has no friends and never had a boyfriend. When she was small she was thrown away by her friends and thus she decided to never trust people ever again, because they will only betray you one day. When she meets Kurosawa Yamato (Sakurai Takahiro), the most popular guy in school, he becomes interested in her and wants to become friends with her. As time goes by Mei and Yamato begin dating each other and Mei is able to put trust in other people again.
Opening Song: Friendship by Okazaki Ritsuko
Ending Song: Slow Dance by Suneohair
I absolutely love the manga, so I was really happy when I heard that there will be an anime adaption. (*´∀｀*人*´∀｀*) And the best thing: Sakurai Takahiro as Yamato!! 😀 I watched the first 5 episodes and I love it so far! The cast for the characters fits perfectly and the animation is quite decent. In the last minutes of each episode we get to hear Sakurai Takahiro as a cat: “Nyan!” I wonder why this reminds me of Mejojo from BWS. xD
Well, I guess you can say Suki-tte ii na yo is your typical “popular guy meets quiet and interesting girl” story, but I really like Mei, since she is such a tsundere. ≖‿≖ Our heroine is not oblivious to boys, she knows very well, what they want. xDD And she beats them up, if they are too cocky! ヾ(ﾟ∀ﾟゞ) Way to go!
Oh, guess what… I even love the opening and ending songs… They are so nice… (❁´◡`❁)*✲ﾟ* I wonder how many episodes will be airing, since the scanslation of the manga takes its time too. Sadly here are only 24 chapters available by now…
I WANT MOAR!!
The premise popular guy falls for a “wallflower” always works, but just imagine the heroine would be popular and the guy is the one, who’s unpopular… There’s no way that it would work out. LOL I wonder why popular guys are so drawn to the girls that don’t fawn over them. 😀 😀 Hehe…
