Synopsis

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.

Okay, maybe that's not as easy as it sounds, 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.

Mei's no princess in a tower. She's not waiting for a knight in shining armor to rescue her. So why did he have to kiss her and confuse everything? And why are those three little words so hard to say?

"Having friends is the same as setting yourself up for a fall." - Someone probably.

Sukitte Ii na yo or Say "I Love You." is an anime mainly about trying to manage a relationship with THE most popular dude in high school with you being the unpopular 'emo' girl, while at the same time is about making and sometimes find out what a true friend is. Now people have told me that, to be blunt, my reviews are sometimes a bit shit so I'm going to try a different formula and see how that goes.

THE GOOD:
The characters in this anime are great, and you really read more

this was my first romance anime, & this is my first review, so bear with me.

story- 6/10
it was fair. a bit melodramatic at times, which i guess i expected for some reason, but i enjoyed it. the last episode was my favorite i think, i can see how some may think that it was a bit underwhelming, but at the time, i think it topped off the series well, yet at the same time, made me want to watch a second season, if that makes sense? too bad there isn't one. it was just funny, & cute, & i liked it.

art, & sound- 7/10

Sukitte ii na yo (eng. Say ”I love you”) had potential to be a blissful romantic drama - for the most part, it is. It nails many aspects of a good story which make up for its flawed plot. The best part of this show is the cast of characters: they are solid, varied and interesting. All of them have their upsides, downsides, flaws and rivalries.

Even without an external plot, the emotional plot alone carries this show far. The animation is really sick too: The lines are sharp and everything from backgrounds to people is finely detailed. Both the guys and the girls are attractive read more

Oh how I wanted to say, I love you to Sukitte Ii na yo... but I just can’t because you’re a flat two dimensional romance that just didn’t live up to my expectations. It really is a shame, because Suki na yo had a tremendous amount of potential and gave us some things we don’t often get to see in the romance genre. But as the series winds down I found myself lamenting what could have been.

It’s hard for me to be too hard on the romance anime plot premise, I mean they have pretty much already all been done before and read more

Say I Love you is very simalar, both Sawako and Mei have similar personalities. And like Kimi ni Todoke, it is an all round sweet anime and worth the time to watch all 13 episodes. I loved it so much I have bought the series on dvd :)

Both are shoujo anime, feature a love build up between characters and lots of comedy in between. 
reportRecommended by hxkclan
Both have anti-social girls who unexpectedly fall in love with the school most popular boys.  
reportRecommended by Foxsynyu
Both are about romance, friendship, teenage years, and both really enjoyable anime. 
reportRecommended by YinLamperouge
Both titles are about teenagers falling in love with each other. This is happening slowly, step by step. They're trying to get to know each other better and understand.
Both contain many funny scenes. The main female characters are similiar in their behavior. 
reportRecommended by Kuchi
I am not sure if I can really link those two with something as precise as similiar characters but I for one enjoyed Toradora as much as I enjoyed Sukitte Ii na yo.
They are both romance anime, both female leads are kind of misunderstood even if it's not in the same way and are both wonderful people once you get to know them. The male leads have both very unique characters and both anime make you feel that little tingly feeling that makes you want to burst whenever something good happens.
Ultimately, all characters are tangled in a romance that in the case  read more
