    I really enjoyed this volume, especially Mei in the contest at the festival. Sadly, she didn't win - but, she seemed to be the only girl that earned heartfelt comments on the voting ballots.

    Three words for this volume- AW HELL NAW! Like seriously I'm so anxious for the next volume after what's happened in this one! I'm still enjoying this series though has to be one of my favourites.

    Le baje de calificación porque, hay mucha referencia a que te tienes que peinar, maquillar, lucir pierna, para ser más femenina... Y no me gusto, pero lo bueno fue que Mei volvió hacer la misma.

    Mei in a popularity contest shows you just how far she's come since the first book. This is something that never would have even crossed her mind back then. But seeing her willing to put herself out there is really amazing. And the kind of support she received with the heartfelt comments shows how much Mei has grown. This whole series puts a lot of thought into the growth and development of the characters, which is hat makes this story so absolutely wonderful. These are all fast becoming very real people to me, and I'm glad to get to know them, and in a sense, enjoy their friendship as I read these books. I definitely want to own this series!

    Thankfully this was a volume without too much of Megumi, but dear Lord, do I still hate the girl for what she did in this manga. Mei also isn't helping with her weak attitude. The manga and the story were great, we see Yamato and Mei grow a bit closer, we see how much Mei cares about Yamato, but also her fears. I loved the contest and the results, it is amazing that that happened and I am delighted for Mei, though I can also imagine why she reacted like that at the end. She tried so hard, battled her way through her fears, all for Yamato. I also liked that she finally took some action with Yamato. Normally he is the one who has to start the hugging or the kissing, but in this one we get a rare Mei-kissing-Yamato action and it was amazing. I just wish they would hug/kiss some more, as it is getting a bit boring and annoying. They make such a cute couple but yet I just miss the romance. I miss the kissing and the hugging. At times I feel like they are just friends, friends in love yes, but nothing more than that. But the problem is still Mei. I like the girl, she is sweet and she does try so hard to do things, but still, 8 volumes in, at least a year if not more must have passed between volume 1 and 8 and yet she is still so insecure, so annoyingly fearful of everything and anything. I can at times relate to her insecure feelings, but mostly I am just getting annoyed with it. How many times does Yamato have to tell her that he loves her, that she is perfect the way she is. Why can't she just fucking see this? Why is she so blind, what does Yamato have to do to show her that she is good for him, that he doesn't leave her no matter what. I am amazed with Yamato and how he just keeps complimenting her, comforting her and more. I hope for Mei's sake that he will keep doing that. I can imagine that even if you love someone, if they keep being so insecure, if they keep doubting your love or that they are worth of your attention, that one might just drift away and find someone else. Mei also did some stuff good in this manga, she took action, she kicked ass in a contest and she tried to look pretty (though she already does, as long as she doesn't make scary faces). I can see improvements, but I can also see that the insecurity won't leave. She should really open her eyes, so many people love her, like her, find her pretty and want to be friends. In this volume enough people show their support for her.Yamato, ah, I still love him. He is so dedicated and sweet to Mei and I hope that he and Mei can be together for a long time, and I also hope that what will happen with Megumi in the next volume won't ruin things. Megumi, I hate her, and I will never like her. What she did in this volume was just bleh. I mean, seriously? Anyone can see what would happen at the contest. She knows Yamato has a girlfriend, yet she did that. I hate it when girls just don't seem to understand the word no, and that they just keep pursuing someone even if they have ZERO interest in them. Give up girl, and get back to modelling and leave it at that. Go away. Shoo. We don't want you.The art is also a problem. Don't get me wrong, it is gorgeous, beautiful and I love it. But it just feels weird when characters talk about being fat and having fat legs/butt, but in the art having sticks as legs, small rounds for butt and no belly fat. Sorry, but how I am supposed to take this, for me it just feels like they are being pathetic, they look great and pretty, I would even see them as way too thin, yet they complain about that kind of stuff and try to diet. It is silly, and instead of feeling sorry for the girls, or nodding along, I am just shaking my head at the silly teenagers worrying about non-existent fat.I am kind of looking forward to the next volume, but I am also worried about what will happen in there. I hope it won't be a breaking point, and I hope that Megumi will just fuck off after that volume.Review first posted at

    Mei, she's not really confident but she's being honest with herself and that's the best kind of adorable there is. And Yamato is such an amazing guy and boyfriend, I want one!Totally thought Mei would at least get to the second place but yeah, after reading the comments of the poll, it was better. I totally liked the first draft of Mei's outfit though, but Yamato's chosen outfit was perfect, this style really suits him. PS:It's always nice to read the afterwords.

    This volume we saw a little less of Megumi, but she has not changed and she still is going for it. Also, the competition was amazing, felt bad for Mei but she did a great job at it. Megumi is still irritates me. Yamato and Mei get a lot closer but Mei didn't want to cross the line just yet. I like that about her, she won't just have sex or do anything in vain or to just feel better.

    This was my favorite book of the series so far. The brother's story is heartbreaking and beautiful. I could read a whole series of just them.

    This was the best volume so far! I love Daichi-kun, and Yamato just keeps getting better and better.

    I'm not a fan of popularity contests and if it was any other series I wouldn't have liked it. I liked seeing more of Yamato's brother, Daichi. (view spoiler)[And I think he had some chemistry with male hairdresser (He dropped papers and he helped pick them up, they're basically married now right?) (hide spoiler)] I felt bad for Mei because she was anxious about the contest and was forcing herself to be something else. However, she was brave and in the end she explored different parts of herself through this, even if it made her uncomfortable. Kai was as cute as ever even as he was awkward at public speaking. Meg still has ulterior motives to be with Yamato which I hate. On a different note Nakanishi needs to stop being jealous over Asami's body. She looked great in the maid outfit.

    The thing with a lot of the high school romance manga series that I’ve read so far is that there is a lot of filler with varying amounts of character development involved. (Additionally, doesn’t help when I read them back to back, because details start to bleed together.) But the thing is that it never really feels to me like the manga’s dragging its feet behind when ideally we could have wrapped things up in one volume instead of lingering on one or two events.So far, Volume 8 is the only that’s felt more like filler in Say “I Love You” (especially given the ending) to me, than anything that really deals with the development of the story. We get the inevitable school festival chapter, with Mei and Meg both being entered into a literal popularity contest and Meg declaring that “I won’t lose to the likes of you!” You can see where the plot is heading from here. But what makes this story work for me personally is how everything about the contest is resolved and the direct outcome of that (aside from the results and what happens at the end.) Although let’s talk about the fact that Mei clearly wants no part in this at all and yet everyone still pressures her into going through with it after she’s been nominated. This is one of the two things that really doesn’t work for me in this volume—I know that a large part of Mei’s characterization is her trying to overcome her shyness and pessimistic outlook on life, but so much of it is dependent on the other characters literally poking at her until she finally gives in. (See also the whole premise of the series.) I get why she’s clearly uncomfortable in front of crowds, and that she really doesn’t want to be made into being a fool onstage, but having her friends saying “It’s cool! You’ll do fine! Look, we even got Yamato’s brother in here to give you a makeover!” and pressuring her to go through with it does leave me with a bad taste in my mouth.But what balances it out is the overwhelming support Mei gets when she gives her speech during the contest. One of the things that I’ve always enjoyed about Mei’s character, even as she’s been making friends and opening up more is still her direct honesty, and I liked that it pays off. I really liked seeing all of the supportive notes and that there’s a balance between “Your speech was so inspiring” and “You’ve been more of an inspiration these past few months and I want to be friends with you.” I really liked seeing that, because it underscores how much Mei has changed throughout the series, and that it sorta of destroys the whole girl-on-girl hate that tends to be incredibly prevalent throughout the series. (I also like the detail that Mei actually came in third, not second, because I think that’s a much more realistic result than getting second and just missing first place.) But speaking about girl-on-girl hate…Meg. I’ve really enjoyed Meg’s character, I like that she’s complex and isn’t 100% vilified because she likes Yamato. But between the last volume and the ending of this one, it’s taken a sudden nosedive. If her motivations for joining the contest were more rooted in her own self-image issues and dealing with that, I’d be fine with it, but her saying to Mei, “So you don’t mind if Yamato and I do go on that date even if he’s not interested, right?” just doesn’t quite work for me. (Yes, I have a feeling the first chapter of Volume 9 is going to have Yamato calling Meg out on this and that he only loves Mei, but still. It’s a trope that I am a little tired of seeing and it’s one that’s pretty much everywhere.)I’ve had more mixed feelings about this particular volume, but I still really enjoyed reading it, and despite my problems with Mei’s entering the popularity contest, I did like the outcome of it and what it meant to her character. This is still one of my favorite ongoing series, and I’m really looking forward to reading the last two volumes.

    Antes de ver "Say I love you" no me habria planteado volver a leer a Kanae Hazuki porque en "Me arrodillo ante ti" descubrí que no era la clase de mangaka capaz de hacer "doki, doki" en mi corazón, pero después de ver una de las películas más intimas y hermosas sobre el amor, la amistad, la belleza interior y el amarse a uno mismo, no pude negar que quería embarcarme en esta aventura literaria. Además, hacía tanto que no leía que me parecía el reencuentro perfecto con mis amadas palabras de papel.♥ Pero salí tremendamente decepcionada porque entre la película y el manga no hay color. Mei y Yamato son muy tiernos, en el manga, en el anime, en la película, en todas partes donde los mires, aunque la Mei de los mangas es un poquito capulla con Yamato, pero Yamato es un ángel aún más grande. No quiero decirle a la gente que no se anime a conocerlos en su versión original porque incluso yo me arriesgué pero es que el problema no eran ellos, que eran todo lo cuquitos que podían, sino todos los secundarios que le roban malamente el protagonismo y la obra. Nunca se hablaba mucho de Mei y Yamato porque solo teníamos tiempo para los lios amorosos de un montón de gente que encima, me caia fatal, incluso una de las más protagonistas de esta serie trata de hundir a Mei en ese lugar en el que habitaba antes de la llegada de Yamato. No entiendo al final que trató de expresar Kanae con esta obra, cual era su intención al crearlos, que quería decir entre tanto relleno. Me da pena que tan rapido perdiera la mano sobre lo que en un principio quería contar. Pero parece ser que tuvo éxito y me alegro por ella, pero vamos, que yo me he llevado una de las más grandes decepciones. Para toda la familia de Sukitte os dejo esta imagen, pero faltan muchos otros personajes que se llevan mucho protagonismo. Son unos pesaditos insoportables. SI OS APETECE LEER MI RESEÑA OS ESTARÉ ESPERANDO AQUIBlog mio (el de siempre xD)http://mayuamoraprimeravista.blogspot...(Blog que comparto con mi Vero xD) Besos

    Youthful cultural festival !"Mei: In the span of one and a half years, I've had a lot of first experiences. I've broken down the walls that were around me, haven't I? This little speed bump on the road isn't good enough reason to waste all that I've worked for."The festival is approaching and by the school tradition every year male and female students nominate their idols for the model competition. The model as in the ones who stood out and shone brighter than the rest and of course those who are the hottest. The problem is that you cannot refuse to participate if enough votes were collected from the student body. Mei is very much aware that Yamato will most certainly be nominated. The even bigger problem is the fact that female and male winner as a reward must go on a proper date. And since it's most likely that Yamato will win and that Megumi will take the first female position, Mei is uncertain what to do. She gathers up the courage to also participate and surprisingly she gets enough votes. "Daichi (to Mei): When it comes to clothes the winners are the ones who are daring. It's the same with hairstyles and make-up, if you put yourself out there then it becomes your own thing, it becomes part of your personality. The important thing is whether you yourself want to do it or not."Yamato's older brother Daichi helps Mei out with clothes, hairstyle and make-up. She is determined to fight as much as she can. She also goes on a diet. On the day of the festival she is so nervous her knees are giving out but she looks really cute. Yamato hugs her and tries to make her relax."Yamato (to Mei): Everything will be alright because I'm right beside you. Don't forget this feeling."Megumi is her usual evil manipulative self. She wants to win and that's it. She wants to go on a date with Yamato and she will not accept defeat because she is the best... blah... blah... And surprise surprise, even though Mei tried her best, Megumi took the first place while Mei was third. Aiko came second. Despite the defeat, Mei gained some popularity and a lot of girls started to approach her. The upcoming date is stressing her out though. She keeps thinking how Yamato will start liking Megumi now. Yamato shows Mei all the attention she deserves..."Mei (about Yamato): If I don't take as much of it in as I can my very young brain won't feel at ease. The pain in my heart keeps growing. I want to touch more of him. I want to reach deep inside him."

    ~4/5This is all new material for me, and I love it!There’s a popularity contest coming up at school, and of course Yamato is entered. And since the male and female winners are supposed to go on a date, Mei has to decide whether she’ll try for it as well.This is a big growing moment for Mei. She’s never been popular, doesn’t particularly like being in the public eye or being all dressed up. But Yamato is important to her, and so she goes for it, and somehow gets in the top five. She has less hope for it than anyone else, but she ends up being inspiring to a lot of her classmates. It was an important moment for her, and I’m glad she did it. It’s also good for her and Yamato, and I like seeing them happy and getting closer.Megumi is also entered, and she’s pretty much a shoo-in. I don’t mind Megumi so much anymore; I don’t trust her feelings for Yamato, but I like seeing her standing up for herself and doing what she wants, pushing herself to do more. We also got to see a little bit of the other couples in the series, and that was nice.This is a lovely, slightly smutty, mature series, and I love it. I’m always excited for the next volume.[Read more at my blog, Geeky Reading!]

    There’s a contest Yamato might enter for Idol of the school & Mei will have to participate for the post-date prize - so the school votes for the 5 male & female participants -they go shopping with Yamato’s brother & he says he’ll help her with hair & make-up & whatnot - Meg really wants to win too (she probe just wants the date with Yamato if he wins -_-) Mei’s trying to lose weight (Kai’s in the contest too)-the festival’s coming up - on the contest day Yamato’s bro shows up at their school -& he gets Mei ready & they present the female contestants first, Aiko, Meg, 2 others & Mei, who makes an honest speech on stage -then the guys are presented, Kai, 3 others & Yamato-Mei wakes up with a fever in the infirmary; must’ve passed out from the stress -they announce the winners; in boys, Yamato is first, Kai second, in girls; Mei third, Aiko second & Meg first - & Mei’s sad but tries to stay positive after seeing what people wrote to her in letters in the ballots -& Meg comes to ask if it’s ok that she & Yamato go on the first prize date & Mei says it’s fine

    Mei-chan looked so cute. I was kind of disappointed in the results although I knew they were coming. But I seriously though she would get 2nd place. Also, Yamato-kun is such a good boyfriends seriously. They miss so much of his best sides on the anime. The manga really shows him more. I swear Megumi-chan better back of or they is gonna be trouble! I know she still like Yamato but if I were in her position and I liked him and I knew he had a girlfriend. I would cancel the date. It's not fair to mei-chan. Even though she says she is okay with it. Deep down she isn't.

    I was initially going to rate this one lower than volume seven, but Hazuki makes Mei so real that I found myself flashing back to my own (horrible) high school days and being in her shoes. I could never have done what Mei did in this volume, but I could feel her emotions. Despite them being negative ones, that's one of the best compliments I can give.

    I liked this volume the best so far. I like Mei more and more with each volume.
