5. Kimi ni Todoke
Kuronuma Sawako is completely misunderstood by her classmates.
Her timid and sweet demeanor is often mistaken for malicious behavior. This is due to her resemblance to the ghost girl from “The Ring,” which has led her peers to give her the nickname Sadako.
Longing to make friends and live a normal life, she is naturally drawn to Kazehaya Shouta, the most popular guy in class, whose “100% refreshing”personality earns him great admiration from Sawako.
So when Kazehaya starts talking to her, maybe there is hope for the friendships Sawako has always longed for.
Maybe… there is even a little hope for some romance in her future.
6. Say “I Love You”
Friends suck, and trusting someone is just setting yourself up. That’s the lesson Mei Tachibana learned after her heart was ripped out and only a shell was left where a girl used to be.
But unlike so many, she found an easy solution: she’ll never make another friend. Ever, but it’s worked for Mei – or at least, it did until handsome, charming and annoyingly popular Yamato Kurosawa came along.
For some freakish reason, he seems to like Mei. He even gave her his phone number! As if she would ever call him.
Except she did. But only because she needed help. Still, he came. He actually came. And now things are getting way too complicated.
7. Ao Haru Ride
Futaba Yoshioka used to be an attractive and popular middle-schooler—well liked by the opposite sex, but ostracized by the girls.
Nevertheless, she was able to brush all that off, because the only opinion that truly mattered to her was that of Kou Tanaka, a classmate with whom she shared a shelter from rain once, followed by quite a few other precious and significant memories.
She even succeeded at making plans to meet with the quiet and innocent boy at the summer festival, but a simple misunderstanding, and Tanaka’s subsequent disappearance, left her walking the halls of her school friendless.
Now in high school, Futaba is not your typical adolescent girl. Determined to become a class favorite this time, she avoids all unwanted attention and, instead of acting cute and feminine, only stands out through her tomboyish behavior and disheveled look.
But still, her world is soon turned upside down when the only boy she ever liked unexpectedly comes into her life once again—except he goes by the name of Kou Mabuchi now, and it is not his name alone that has gone through a sea change.
