Kimi ni todoke is one of the best animes I have ever seen. It explores the emotional depth of its characters and also adds sparks of humor to its story lines. Albeit filled with hope, it explores the impact of personal experience on the way we learn to communicate our feelings and our thoughts, and the sadness that can occur when we are unable to do so. Sawako is a beautiful character whose altruistic personality and purity of heart and of thought reminded me why the Japanese people never cease to intrigue me, by the subtlety with which they revive the forgotten spirit of human kindness.
Although to some viewers the sometimes slow rhythm in which the events develop might become tiring, I hope you will have the patience to let the story reveal itself and discover its beauty, the complex mind of the human being portrayed through a brilliant psychological analysis.
This is my first commentary, I sincerely hope it to be useful :) In other words, the exact "kimi ni todoke", which means "reaching you" :)
