An Overview of Kimi no Todoke’s Plot
As of now, we do not have details regarding the plot of Kimi no Todoke Season 3. However, we can enjoy the memories of a fantastic anime series by briefly recalling what happened in the previous seasons of Kimi no Todoke.
Located in Hokkaido, the story of Kimi no Todoke centers around Sawako Kuronuma, a 15-year-old high school freshman. She’s been called “Sadako” by her classmates because she looks remarkably similar to the character from the movie “The Ring.” This unfortunate resemblance has caused her to live a life filled with fear and misunderstandings solely based on her appearance.
In addition to her troubles, rumors are circulating at her school, suggesting that she can see ghosts and even cast curses. However, unlike these strange rumors, Sawako is a kind-hearted girl who strongly desires to help others. Sadly, her long isolation has made making friends feel foreign to her.
Everything takes a dramatic turn when she begins talking to Kazehaya, a popular boy in school. Talking to him is not just a mere experience; it introduces her to a new world, allowing her to form new friendships and interact with a diverse group. Sawako is incredibly thankful to Kazehaya for opening these doors for her. Gradually, their feelings for each other grow, and they finally fall for one another, becoming each other’s strength through thick and thin.
