There’s only so long you can stay completely innocent for. You don’t have to become a worse person, but eventually, you do have to grow some maturity. Having been a Kimi ni Todoke fan for some time now, I’ve started to notice certain changes have been occurring in the series. Things have slowly been getting more dramatic and sad, and while the cuteness of the beginning is still around, it hasn’t been quite as grandiose. Even the humour has been getting more mature, as you can plainly see. I thought it was strange at first when Kazehaya’s little brother lamented that Sawako’s boobs weren’t bigger, but somehow that stopped being strange over time. It’s as though the series has started to show its age, and everyone in it has followed suit.
