1st love between friendless girl & boy who starts 1-sided relationship with her

The July issue of Kodansha's Dessert magazine is announcing on Thursday that an anime adaptation of Kanae Hazuki's Suki-tte Ii na yo. (Say "I love you".) shōjo manga has been green-lit. (The illustration of the manga is on the lefthand side of the pictured magazine cover.)

The story of first love centers around Mei Tachibana, a girl who has never made friends or had a boyfriend in 16 years. One day, she accidentally injures Yamato Kurosawa, the school's most popular boy. For some reason, Yamato becomes interested in Mei and starts a one-sided friendship with her. He even protects her from a stalker — by kissing her.

Hazuki launched the manga in 2008, and Kodansha published the eighth compiled book volume this past January. Dessert is also announcing that Robico's Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun (The Monster Seated Next to You) manga is getting an anime.
