Sawako Kuronuma (黒沼 爽子)
Anime: Kimi ni Todoke.
Sawako, aka Sadako, is a shy girl who only wants to be accepted and to make friends. However, because of her appearance, and her lack of social skills, people thing she is creepy and that she has some sort of evil power. One day, she gets the chance to talk to one of the more popular guys in the class, Kazehaya. Kazehaya, a.k.a. refreshing-kun, is able to help her become accepted by the class and for her to make friends.
Despite being a guy, I thought this very shojo anime was amazing. It's impossible not to love Sawako. Between her funny facial expressions and behavior, she adds a lot of humor as well. The interactions between her and Kazehaya, as well as her various friends that she makes are so heartwarming and adorable. When she made her first real smile in the anime, my heart almost stopped.
