Say I Love You.
Volume 1


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.

Honestly, in my opinion this is one of the best romances out there. If you watched the anime already and liked it, please read this. Because compared to this, the anime is nothing.

The story is about Mei Tachibana, a shy and introverted girl and her relationship with Yamato Kurosawa, a handsome and popular guy. That itself really is nothing new or exceptional. But it is really well made.

You get to accompany the characters all the way to their graduation, further focusing on Tachibanas insecurities and developing their relationship further. But it doesn't stop there. You actually also get to see (and more than just a read more

Might contain very light spoiler

i first read this manga way back 2011 but dropped it after reading a few chapters. mainly because early on, they talk about sex all the time. having sex with different guys or different girls. and having this categorized as "smut" in a manga site i was reading it on, i thought this manga would be all about it. especially since Yamato would kiss Mei intensely everytime. it's just a matter of few more chapters before Mei gives in to Yamato. and they will have sex on every chapter after that. lol (my biggest mistake and i'm now guilty of thinking read more

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

"Isn't it sad to strangle yourself with your own hands?"


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.

On a whim, I picked read more
