Kimi Ni Todoke

Take your standard high school teen romance angst-fest...  And attach a JATO unit and smash it into the side of a cliff at 600MPH where it explodes into a shower of rainbow-coloured sakura petals.

This one is actually good.  Double bonus points for teenagers who aren't all jerks and/or idiots by default.

Update: Okay, so Sawako's pretty much a poster-girl for but the show carries if off with such grace and charm that it...  Um...  Comes out charming and graceful. wink

Update: Oh, and some really gorgeous artwork.

This is also a 12-episode series, but unlike Nyan Koi, I think I'm going to miss it when it's over.

Update: I'm quite taken with the score as well.

1 Watch Windy Tales ep1..2 for perspective on origins of artwork.

2 If she has it's a fairly mild case. Nodame on the other hand...

3 I haven't watched Nodame.  But the way Sawako treats as rather than is typical, perhaps even of .

4 You cannot be serious about Nodame. She's quite well adjusted, considering her peers (just look at freaks like Yuuto and Masumi-chan), just washes with the same frequency my daughter does.

5 I just think that a term intended for a rather serious disability is starting to be used to describe something for which a better term, like "nerdiness", might be appropriate.

As for Nodame, her picture belongs in the next edition of the DSM, right next to the official description of the syndrome.

6 While I agree with you, I still think that Sawako pretty much exemplifies this.  Particularly with what we see in episode 6.
