I know I'm doing this backwards by watching the anime then reading the manga, but I just can't let go. I've watched and rewatched this anime so many times I've lost count. It is so well written, the characters are amazing, dymanic, multifaceted, and just flat out gorgeous. The love story is sweet and heartwarming. You can't help but fall in love with "kimi ni todoke". Definitely worth the watch.
