If you’ve read the about authors page you’ll know that Kimi ni Todoke is one of my top five animes and also one of the best selling manga of the past few years. It’s a beautifully told story about an easily misunderstood girl who falls for this refreshing guy who also falls for her but find trouble telling each other their feelings. I highly recommend it to everyone, it’s just a delightful story. So it was sooner or later that I’d be putting up a theme in the series and here it is Kataomoi by Chara, the first season’s ending theme.
Whilst many people say that Chara sounds too hoarse to sing, I think that’s a very likeable factor about her. Because of that hoarseness it kinda adds a little charm to the song. Very hard to put it into words, but I hope you see what I mean.
It’s a lovely song itself, Kataomoi translates to unrequited love or something similar and the lyrics describes well the state of the main two characters. I thought the rough hoarse voice was a nice imagery for the rough road ahead for Sawako and Kazehaya.
