Based off of a Shoujo mana, Sukitte li na yo gets an anime! Which is amazing in itself since not a lot of shoujo manga gets an anime so I was quite surprised to see this on the Autumn 2012 anime list. O___o; I wish they could have done Yumemiru Taiyou or like Strobe Edge. But I guess this is good too.
I read the manga and I like it. I’m really picky when it comes to shoujo since some of them are just no good.
Anyways, summary of the story:
“Mei Tachibana has spent her 16 years without a boyfriend or friends. One day, she injures the most popular boy in school, Yamato Kurosawa, due to a misunderstanding. For some reason though, it seems that he takes a liking to her and one-sidedly claims that they’re friends. Furthermore, he not only protects Mei from a stalker, but does so with a kiss…?!! “

It sounds like a typical popular guy falls for the girl who has no interest in him but well, it’s more than that. You actually get to see the characters change a bit as they are dating each other. This story is a little on the smutty side and I freaking hate smut, but it’s tolerable in a way. I won’t try to spoil any more than that.
The original manga has 8 volumes published and was released back in 2008.
And here are the voice casts:
Kurosawa Yamato – Sakurai Takahiro (Holy shit…Sakupyon! I haven’t heard his voice in a while! I’m excited to hear this)
Tachibana Mei – Kayano Ai
Kitagawa Megumi – Kotobuki Minako
Mutou Aiko – Uchiyama Yumi
Nakanishi Kenju – Shimazaki Nobunaga
Oikawa Asami – Taneda Risa
Takemura Kai – Maeno Tomoaki
These are most of the characters in the story. The main characters and their friends. And well, the occasional bad person too.
I wonder how it will be animated. It will be produced by Zexcs and aired in October 2012. Look forward to it!
