Kimi ni Todoke: From Me to You Episode 2 — Seating Change
Published February 1, 2012
Sawako's class has a seat change day. Unfortunately for Sawako, no one wants to sit by her. Anxiously trying to avoid Sawako, they settle on drawing numbers to determine seating. After hearing enough of it, Kazehaya moves his table and seat next to Sawako's, and asks to switch with whoever had that number assigned. Seeing this, Yano and Yoshida do the same. Sawako also gets to meet Sanada Ryuu, a friend of Kazehaya and Yoshida, who sits behind her. Later in the episode, when Sawako gives up her umbrella to cover a box with a puppy in it during a rainstorm, she shows up to school drenched. Yoshida and Yano give her a change of clothes. Kazehaya gives his towel to her. Wanting to show her appreciation, gives them some home made cookies as a thanks for being so nice to her. A character that appears later on, Kurumizawa Ume, first appears in this episode for a brief moment.
