Kimi ni todoke cap 26
Kimi ni Todoke: From Me to You, Vol. 11 by Karuho ShiinaSome thoughts:
I love how the typical girl vs. girl scenario (where two girls compete over a guy) wasnt found in this series. Even though Kurumi and Sawako consider each other rivals, its in a respectful way, not a scathing I hate that bitch for liking/eyeing my crush way. They respect one anothers feelings for Kazehaya. Even though Kurumi *did* at first manipulate other girls to try and tarnish Sawakos reputation, once she realized Sawakos feelings towards Kazehaya were serious, she backed off (for the most part). Basically, Kurumi doesnt fall into the typical (and, in my opinion, reviled) mean girl stereotype. Kurumi has flaws, depth, quirks, and charm. She is not just a one-dimensional character whose character arc is over once she doesnt get the guy. Kurumi is a foil for Sawako (they both are girls who have felt alienated from their peers for different reasons), but she has her own issues with which to contend. Anyway, even though the manga is (currently) focusing on Chizu and Ayane (as of volume fourteen onward), I have hopes that Shiina will give Kurumi her own resolution and happy ending.
One line from Ayane to Kurumi really interested me: Dont you wish I was a boy? I mean, then I could understand all of your bad parts. Even with the tricky wording (its all about the context of the scene), I think Ayane is saying that, as a girl, she can understand and empathize with Kurumis flaws; however, Kazehaya (as a nice/good boy) would not be able to like Kurumi romantically because of the flaws she has sought to hide from him. (All this time Kurumi has been hiding behind a nice/polite/cheerful facade -- trying to act the girl version of Kazehaya, basically -- while smothering her true/real self. Of course, Kazehaya didnt react with romantic interest to this female version of himself, so Kurumi has had to come to terms with that.) I think this line alone has interesting implications: girls try to alter themselves for the sake of boys (or love interests/crushes) while girls in general may not always like each other but they do understand one another (most of the time). Its also interesting that Ayane goes so far as to imply, If I were to turn into a boy tomorrow, then maybe I would be the kind of boy you would want: someone who could understand and accept your flaws and love you in spite of them. (But maybe Im just looking too far into the text with this...)
I love Chapter 44 from Kazehayas POV: we get to see his first-hand thoughts about Sawako from the very first time Kazehaya met her leading up to the night of the Haunted Trail event (from the first chapter of the manga). I love the innocence of how he gets flustered around her yet how he doesnt let his self-consciousness get in the way of interacting with her. Although Kazehaya is very much an ideal boy (despite being popular, he never once took into account how he would look interacting with the alienated scary loner Sawako), there are definitely still shades of realism to his character, I think.
Favorite dialogue from this volume:
Sawako: I - I dont know...what the role of a girlfriend is, but...
Kazehaya: Kuronuma...its not a role. Its not a job. Just be who you are.
I think this is such a refreshing thing that Shiina allows her male character to get across to the heroine: that he doesnt think of her being his girlfriend as coming with a list of criteria she must fulfill. So often in various media (movies, TV shows, books, etc.), boyfriends have a nasty tendency to spout, Youre my girlfriend, so you should want to kiss me/have sex with me/do things for me. And I think that stereotype helps to spur on girls doing things they arent ready for simply to please/placate their significant others (because the girls are afraid of losing those they love). Its nice that Kazehaya took the time to get this point across: What will push me away is not what you do/dont do for me but when youre not being honest with me.
Of course, this idea -- of Kazehaya allowing Sawako to set the pace for their relationship -- has some (regrettable) repercussions in later volumes. Kazehaya goes overboard with his stance on not pushing Sawako, to the point that their relationship becomes a bit strained and not so easy/comfortable as it had been. Both Kazehaya and Sawako want more of a physical relationship -- they almost kiss in a later chapter, only to be interrupted -- but Sawako is too embarrassed to take charge herself and Kazehaya doesnt want to push Sawako for things she isnt ready to do. What ends up putting distance between them is the a lack of communication and a slew of mixed signals. Heres hoping, though, that theyll resolve these issues without resorting to the old shoujo cliche of a break-up.
All my looking too deeply into manga aside, I really do recommend Kimi ni Todoke since -- despite some pacing issues (especially if youre reading chapter by chapter along with the Japanese releases) -- it really is one of the best shoujo manga out there right now.
