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?

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

Sukitte Ii na yo was my first romance anime to watch and I decided to write this review in order to convey to you all of my thoughts about it. Well, when I was watching the earliest episodes, I thought it was really underrated. There are many out there that don’t really like it (and I’m talking about girls certainly) and that was always leads it to be given really unfair ratings.

Well that’s exactly the problem with romance animes. Their stories redound to become mainstream and that’s why they don’t appeal much on their viewers, so that makes them complete them without considerate them as read more

I started "Sukitte Ii Na Yo" a bit impressed with how the plot genuinely interested me and how The emotions of the characters got through to the viewer so well. Though, while I wish this was the case for the remainder of the series, it wasn't.

As far as story goes, it's very similar to Anime like "Kaichou aw Maid Sama" and "Kimi ni Todoke" in that the main female lead is a bit closed off due to past experiences and the love interest slowly opens them up with their persistence towards the girl. While I loved Maid-Sama and Kimi nii , there where a read more

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.
