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?

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

This anime had potential, I'll give it that, but it just didn't live up to my expectations and I don't expect it will to many people (unless if you're just looking for a quick anime to watch, then it's perfect). I'll start with some of its good points.

The artwork is amazing. Really, I can't tell you how much I love it! The characters are attractive but not overly so (like. Normal high schoolers. Wow.). The backgrounds and scenery are gorgeous, and gosh if you love good artwork plus shoujo, this is something you should definitely watch.

Mei and Yamato are well developed characters, though the former 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

Sukitte Ii na yo (Say "I love you") was overall a good series if you are looking for something short.

The music for the intro and the ending is really cute. I loved it! The animation was great. Everything was really detailed and it made the whole anime better. The characters were well development and each of them were very different in their own way.

The only thing that I didn't like was how fast everything went. I feel like the situations were fixed up really quickly in one episode. It could have extended throughout the series with fewer problems. The plot was great I did read more

Both are shoujo anime, feature a love build up between characters and lots of comedy in between.
Both are shoujo anime, feature a love build up between characters and lots of comedy in between.
Both have anti-social girls who unexpectedly fall in love with the school most popular boys.
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.

Both are about romance, friendship, teenage years, and both really enjoyable anime.
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 of Toradora isn't exactly defined at the beginning (no spoilers :3) but are both beautiful in their own way.
Toradora is a bit longer so it makes you enjoy more twists to the plot than Sukitte Ii na yo but the story never feels too long or there just to fill the episode count.
