Stargazing: Kimi ni Todoke - Tanizawa Tomofumi

When it comes to all-in-one series that can combine multiple different genres and do them all justice, Kimi ni Todoke is one that certainly comes to mind. Beautifully blending romance and friendship to portray the harsh realities of high school segregation and acceptance, it's a series I always come back to enjoy, time and time again.

While both opening themes to this show were highly enjoyable, I still have a slightly larger soft spot for this first one that started it all. Even without much knowledge of Japanese, the lyrics are easy to learn. It's a sweet song that fits the tone of the series perfectly.
