Kimi Ni Todoke TV Series Coming to Netflix in March 2023
After a very successful year for Netflix when it comes to their anime and live-action series, Netflix just dropped the trailer for the upcoming Kimi ni Todoke TV series. The highly-demanded live-action of the popular manga From Me to You is on its way, and it coming sooner than you think!
From Me to You Manga
The Kimi ni Todoke TV series adaptation is one of the best news I heard in 2023 so far! Therefore, here are some of the details about the manga itself. Starting in 2006 and ending ultimately in 2018, the From me to You manga is one of the longest and definitely most beautiful romance stories.
The manga follows two high school students Sawako and Shota. Sadly, Sawako is one of the unpopular girls who suffer a lot of peer pressure and bullying. Her classmates call her Sadako because of her gloomy appearance and long, dark hair.
On the other hand, Shota Kazehaya is the complete opposite of Sawako. He’s the popular guy in the classroom. When he finds out that peers are pressuring Sawako into doing many kinds of activities instead of them, Shota steps in. He begins to form a close bond with Sawako. She starts to gain confidence, friends, and ultimately feelings for Shota.
The beautiful story between Shota and Sawako shows many devastating elements. From high school bullying and having no friends to gaining a best friend for life and a partner, Sawako’s dreams finally come true!
