Synopsis of Kimi ni Todoke

Sawako Kuronuma is a 15-year-old student who is often mistaken for the horrific and vengeful spirit Sadako Yamamura from The Ring. The uncanny resemblance makes Sawako be called "Sadako". Due to her aloof and gloomy appearance, her classmates have become afraid of her and stay away from her. But despite that treatment, he harbors an innocent and diligent heart.

Given his sincere desire to make friends, Sawako has a deep admiration for Shouta Kazehaya, the most popular boy in his class. Thanks to her refreshing personality and fluid interpersonal interactions, Kazehaya naturally attracts people. Wishing to be more like him, Sawako begins to spend more time with Kazehaya. As she tries to turn the page, Sawako is encouraged to explore new things she had never dared to do, with Kazehaya by her side.
