Since her "friends" framed her for the death of the class rabbit in elementary school, Mei Tachibana has given up on other people. But when she kicks Yamato, the most popular boy at her high school, in the head (she was aiming for someone else), she becomes enemy No. 1 among the student body, while Yamato himself grows more and more fascinated with her! Candid and complex, Say I Love You breathes new life into common themes, thanks to Hazuki's unique insight into the awkward bluster and emotional vulnerability of teenage life.
