I've gotta say though, the anime has really made me realize how much of an insensitive jerk Sumika is; she's constantly flat out ignoring the feelings and conversation of people around her. I mean, for christ's sake, people are trying to talk to you. The overwhelming duplicity behind 'Sumi-chan's' vague grunt and smile in response to a question directed specifically at her was kinda sickening. I get that she's pining for her soulmate and all, but goddamn--when she's in the midst of a -two day- annual visit with people who obviously care about her, would it kill her to show some consideration and sincerity?
All kids are insensitive jerks. Ironically they are good at calling others out on it but don't recognize it when they are doing it themselves. Thats called immaturity. That's also what made me really respect the storytelling and character crafting of Sasameki Koto. These aren't 14 yr old girls acting like 30 yr old super spys, these are 16 yr old girls acting their age.

Also... young lesbians behave exactly like these two. I was friends with a few (despite being a guy o.0) in highschool . I remember, 2 girls in particular and their back and forth relationship. Somehow I got involved...even if I was never loved it was really sweet to have been able to see their love bloom before my eyes.

I've been waiting on the new episode after watching Kimi no Todoke yesterday. I just remembered that it ended already. I'm so sad. I want a second season already. xD

As the show went on and reached the end, I found out that I didn't care much about the development of Sumika and Kazama's relationship. Whether they get together or not, if one of them realizes each other feelings, etc.

Their friendship was always so odd to me. I didn't get a feel of their Best friends relationship because the way Sumika acts around Kazama. They care alot for each other but whenever I see them interacting, I find something lacking. Maybe it's because we see Sumika thoughts in yuri love mode on default.

I never read the manga. But despite what I said, I still think it's a good show. I probably ended up disliking Sumika a little.

the foundation of their awkward relationship is explained in the manga. which is why a lot of us want a second season.

finally finished it... the ending is like their relationship back to square one but maybe with Kazama realised how important is Sumi for her

overall apart from a bit slow-paced sometime, the show is balance with comedy and touching moments, i rated it 7/10

my favourite char is Sumi-chan, even tho i feel a bit pity for Akemi

i feel it is ok if no season 2 is coming

I just finished the series today, and I really enjoyed it had a great balance of Comedy, and slice of life in it. I'd give a 9/10 but I am bit bias since it falls into genres I love. Though I really hope there is second season cause the ending didn't really feel like an ending to me.

Sounds to me that you should start reading the manga then. You'd love it.

How much more material is in the manga currently or is finished, and what volume/chapter did the anime leave off in?

The anime was basically one chapter per episode, with one anime-original episode, leaving off at chapter 12, while the manga scanlations have gone as far as chapter 28 right now (still on-going--mm, and come to think of it--probably no end in sight for quite a while yet).

Hmmm, if it's like that I'll get around to it when I have time then xD.

I wonder when the second season comes around. The original manga was the most perfect gem in yuridom.

The manga was great, but this anime flopped so hard it would be a miracle if it ever gets a second season.
