Sukitte Ii na yo
Mei Tachibana was once a regular girl who enjoyed hanging out with her friends. But after a traumatic incident where all her so-called friends suddenly turned their backs on her, Mei’s idea of friendship changed forever.
Even though I only feel warmth at those times, the moment I leave, I start to get cold again, and I fear that even my heart will turn to ice
In order to stop herself from ever going through the same awful experience again, she decides to stay away from people as much as possible, and ideally, to never make any friends ever again.
It’s like a doll house. You hang out together and pretend to be friends but when it doesn’t suits them, they just abandon you
This tactic seems to have worked relatively well in her current high school life, and she didn’t at all mind being thought of as gloomy and strange. However, the appearance of Yamato Kurosawa—one of the most popular boys in her high school—shakes her stable foundation of an introvert, and makes her question whether or not her choices were indeed the right ones.
When you trust someone and get to know them, you eventually learn about their wounds, too
Not only does Yamato not ignore her like everyone else seems to be doing, he also decides to freely give her his phone number! As their relationship slowly develops, and is marked with an unexpected kiss, Mei is finding it very hard to adapt to this new life style, and hardest of all, to express her true feelings towards Yamato. Sukitte Ii na yo. follows their developing relationship, as well as their frequent disagreements, to portray how difficult it can really be to say “I love you.”
I tried to carry on, while rejecting any relationships with others. But once you reject people, your stuck. You lose the opportunity to meet someone and change
If you extend your horizons, the things that happening to you might look surprisingly small. So, don’t be scared… confidently, put yourself out there
Someday, maybe you’ll find someone like you to share your pain with. I can’t tell you when that will happen…. But the important thing is to not reject them
But there’s nothing wrong to worrying. It’s like a wall you need to overcome, to make it to the next level. If you’re running up against that wall, it means you’re moving forward. I wonder how many walls I’ve broken up until now, but if you wont move yourself, you will never get anywhere
