Format: Paperback
I'd heard "Say I Love You" was good, but I put off buying it because the plot sounded cliche-- popular boy falls for unpopular girl, girl is resistant but warms up to boy, complications ensue. However, the plots of some of my all-time favorite manga sound just as cliche if you just read the cover blurbs. So I decided to give this a try.

Mei is an unusual shojo heroine. Betrayed by her "friends" in elementary school, she's decided that she can't trust other people and is better off alone. She's picked on a lot at school and has become withdrawn and cynical. She wishes people would leave her alone, but does little to defend herself. One day, however, Mei snaps when a boy grabs her skirt on the stairs and roundhouse kicks Yamato, the most popular boy at school. When it turns out it was Yamato's friend, she apologizes, but Yamato wants to be friends with her, claiming that he likes "interesting" girls. Mei refuses at first, but one night, when she needs help and has no one else to call on, he comes to her aid. She begins to trust Yamato a little, and he inserts himself into her life. At first glance, Yamato seems like a typical idealized romantic interest-- gorgeous, popular, sweet, reliable... and interested in personality over looks. As the story progresses, however, we find that he's both more and less than he appears, a refreshing surprise. Yamato is very earnest and shows genuine friendship toward Mei (which makes her happy), and has no problem hugging her and telling her how much he likes her (which makes her uncomfortable). She's still stand-offish with him, but it's just because she's not used to displays of affection and doesn't know how to react. Also, she doesn't understand why he likes her, of all people, and sometimes has trouble believing that he means what he says.

Format: Paperback
Romantic comedy. Great characters all acting goofy and just the way you wish you had been in High School if only you had had enough confidence! I like the premise of a girl who desires no friends being chased by a good looking / popular guy. She puts up all sorts of barrier/obstacles that he isn't used to getting (as a playboy). He struggles to get close, while she doesn't trust him one bit. It is funny and fun. They're surrounded by plenty of eccentric friends whose behavior give a great contrast to the main protagonists. The latter are just trying to be honest with each other and understanding, while everyone else's relations have some major twist or unhealthy dynamic caused by childish misunderstandings.

Will Mei and Yamato overcome their hang-ups to have a serious love relationship? Or will they be broken up by girls throwing themselves (all the way) at Yamato. Or what about the playboys who suddenly realize that Mei is not really a loner, but a really cute and innocent girls? Will boys fight over Mei? (yes). Will girls bully Mei? (yes). Will kids embarass them all the time? Do they even really want to date one another? Their both very inexperienced and confused by thier emotions.

Anyway, this is an excellent new series in the romacom genre, heavy on the roma side. Guys will like it. There is plenty of sexual innuendo to keep a boy's attention. But not ecchi and definitely not H. This is a cross-over comic coming from the Shoujo side of manga. It is great!

I've seen the Anime and I can say the Manga translation is fantastic I love the art style and how the story flows from page to page, I plan to buy the next books to come! It's a super cute romantic story of a girl who was unoticed but a popular guy falls for her and she doesn't believe him one bit so he has to show her his true love while dealing with life hardships, jealous ex's, family members and so on.

I'm really happy with my copy of "say I love you" I've been a fan for a really long time and I'm happy they finally decided to release it I'm English print. The manga follows the anime pretty closely with a little more detail, the art is amazing, though a little different, Yamato and Mei's relationship begins beautifully here, the story is sweet without being overdone, or too cliché. Overall it exceeded my expectations. I hope kodansha decides to release the series all the way to the end because I will definitely be buying them all.

[More of my reviews are available on my blog, Geeky Reading, to which there's a link on my profile.]

I’ve already read some of this series, plus I’ve seen the anime. Which means that I am already a huge fan, and was one of the people excited when it got licensed. I’m already a fan of the characters, the romance, the art, the writing. It’s been so long since I first read it, though, that this re-read is making it fresh in my mind. Plus, there are extras at the back, including author comments, which I didn’t get in my first read, and I enjoy those.

This series focuses around Mei, a loner who has avoided getting to know people since a bad experience in her childhood. Then Yamato notices her; he's the popular boy, with friends and girls falling all over him. But he's bored with the same old things from the people around him, and Mei intrigues him. He makes this apparent very early on, and Mei gives in, opening her world to all kinds of things--not only romance, but also friends.

Mei is insecure. She’s inexperienced, and she’s already starting to mature by getting to know Yamato and making friends with Asami. She’s a little feisty, hiding her fear of making friends behind it. But she sticks up for herself and her friends, and I like that.

The relationships are still in the getting-to-know-you phase. She’s still learning about Yamato, and he’s good for her, but he’s also still maturing. I think Mei and Asami will be good for each other, having very different personalities and outlooks, but ones that will even the other out, and push the other in the right way. I think I actually really like Asami. She doesn’t get a lot of time for her own story, although she got a little in this volume.
