Kimi ni Todoke Episode 13: “I Want It To Be Love”
Minnie: After a week long break with no new airing anime for me to watch, Kimi ni Todoke is the first one out of the many shows to be subbed first in my list. Of course, this made me happy because KnT is currently the show I loved the most. I’m crossing my fingers and hoping it will last for 26 episodes in all. I don’t want KnT to end anytime soon because… what can I say? I’m a sucker for Sawako and the Sawako/Kazehaya pairing. Let’s hope all this episodes stay high in quality. Sparkle sparkle~
(Katt: It’s going to be 24 episodes, and there has been a live-action movie announced! Just FYI, Minnie. )
Minnie’s Overall Rating for Episode: 10/10
Minnie’s Anticipation for Next Episode: 10/10
Thoughts: Why is it that almost every episode of KnT has made me cry a little here and there? This episode made me tear up a couple of times. I don’t get it. Is it the music? The voice acting? Or am I just a sucker for these types of romances? In any case, this is a superb episode is resolving the rumor issue earlier in the show. Yano proves why she’s the smart one of the group and full of pure ownage. And Kurumi has been owned for her bad deeds this episode by all the right people. Ryuu just rocks in general for going whatever and leaving. And of course, let’s not forget Kazehaya asking Sawako out <3 CUTEEEEEEEEE! But yeah, superb episode and development.
After Kazehaya grabs Sawako’s arm and runs, Sawako feels… something that might be love in her chest. Since she doesn’t know what falling in love feels like, she tells herself that she wants this feeling to be love. I really enjoy the bubbles and sparkles in the background this episode… more than any other for some reason. It just adds a whole new level for it. Props to Sawako’s voice acting for this scene too!
Yano reveals to Yoshida that something is up with Kurumi and it is most likely she who is the one who spread all those horrible rumors about them earlier in the series. Of course, there must be a reason why she dislikes them so much so Yoshida comes up with the most logical explanation in her head- Kurumi likes Ryuu. It makes some sense since they all go to the same middle school and everything… Though…
This is where all of us go “D’AWWWWWWW” at this cute moment between the two lovebirds. =3 I know I am teary at this moment. Kazehaya wants to help Sawako and he has helped her many times in the past, but Sawako believes she’s just a burden to him and that he doesn’t have to go that far for her. Of course he can if he wants to! He’s in love with you too Sawako! Don’t you get it? XD
Yano knows that Kurumi is one tough opponent. In order to strike down this opponent, they cannot let her off the hook by faking innocence. Yano, what are you up to? =3 And how much am I going to love you for it? XD Haha.
This is the case where instead of being oblivious to a girl’s crush, the male thinks she has a crush on him when she doesn’t even care for him. Omg. It’s funny how that works, doesn’t it?Because… you’re up against Pin, Kurumi… you should hold up the white flag. Common sense and normal tactics won’t work on him.
Meanwhile, innocent Sawako has no idea what Yano and Yoshida are up to, investigating about Kurumi. Sawako has finally realized her feelings for Kazehaya. What does a girl do when she realizes her feelings? She tells her friends of course! Which… sadly, includes Kurumi. Sawako… I don’t think this is a good idea… you should turn back before Kurumi attack you with her claws. o.o
Innocent Sawako is here <3 It’s been a while since I did this so I’ll do it now: SAWAKO <3333333333333333333 You’re soooo awesome!!! One of a kind~ One of the few heroines I actually adore without being dark and cunning. ^^ <3 Sawako~
And of course, Yano gets even more love for her line <333333333333333333333
What will happen next? What will happen between Kurumi and Sawako? Catfight or reconcile or neither? I actually read this chapter so I know. I can’t wait to see it animated though! <3 Until next time <3333333
