Synopsis

Mei Tachibana has no friends—and she doesn't need them! Ever since her "friends" betrayed her in elementary school, she's sworn off friendship entirely. All it leads to is betrayal and heartbreak, and she's well enough on her own. But everything changes when she accidentally roundhouse kicks the most popular boy in school! However, Yamato Kurosawa isn't angry in the slightest. In fact, he thinks his ordinary life could use an unusual girl like Mei! He won't take no for an answer, and soon Mei and Yamato embark on an unwanted friendship that will change both of them forever.

Story
A girl who's never made friends before and who has given up on people is suddenly befriended by the most charismatic, popular boy in school. Sure, it's very shoujo-ish, but it stands out because it's so well done. Standard "episodes" like The First Kiss and The Overnight Trip and The Interfering Playboy are treated with surprising originality and depth. It's also more mature, but the "smut" isn't gratuitous; it's refreshing reading a manga like this that isn't about the heroine accepting the hero's feelings but about the progression of their very real, romantic relationship. Early on, they start dating, and THAT'S read more

I've only read four chapters of this manga so far and I'm dying for more. At first, it was the art that compelled me to this manga. I especially love the way Hazuki Kanae draws hair and makes each and every character look so individual.

Beyond the way the characters are drawn it’s easy to tell that their personalities will come out in further chapters if they have not already. I’m in love with the characters and especially fond of Mei, a girl who reminds me so much of myself.

There's not much to say about the plot, and I'm rating this manga mostly on my read more

WHY SAY I LOVE YOU IS SHAPING UP TO BE ONE OF THE BEST SHOUJO MANGA

Years ago, I watched the anime Suki tte li na yo and was underwhelmed. It wasn't bad per se, but it was a rushed & easily forgettable anime. Its characters were interesting, but none were given enough time to be truly fleshed out, so they ended up falling flat. I read the manga to see if it was any better, but found the same thing and ended up dropping it after just a few chapters.

I was introduced to this manga by my crush, so it's no wonder why I love this manga so much. However, there's so much more into why I love this manga and its story.

Story - 9/10
The story is just beautiful. You've probably read the synopsis many times before and thought that this manga's story might be another one of those cheesy love stories--- well, that's where you're wrong. It's not your typical love story. You get to explore so much more such as each character's back story and you learn the simple lessons in life as you read.

Art - 9/10
