A new full trailer and second teaser trailer have been released for Kimi ni Todoke. The movie is due for release in Japan on September 25th and is a live action version of the popular manga (turned anime) by Karuho Shiina.
The movie stars Mikako Tabe as high school student Sawako Kuronuma and she gets called Sadako after the character from the Ring movie simply due to her long dark hair an gloomy appearance. No one really talks to her until one day Shota Kazehaya (Haruma Miura) one of the popular male classmates talks to her and things grow into a friendship leading into areas of life Swako would never think off...Romance.
This is a typical and very popluar romance genre within Japanese teens and you'll find hundreds of similar stories to this one but only the better ones become animes then features. Its a little like mill and boon for Japanese teen girls.

The trailers are after the break...
