Kimi ni Todoke has been adapted into two light novel series. The first was a 16-volume series by Shimokawa Kanae, published between August 2007 and December 2015; the second was a 13-volume series by Bunko Mirari, published between March 2011 and June 2015. Both were illustrated by Shiina.
A live-action film was released in 2011.
Kurumi was a divisive character in the fandom. Some fans were put off by her history of manipulation and sabotage against the main couple, while others were amused by her antics and pleased with her redemption. Similarly, many fans expressed frustration with Kent for obstructing the main couple's relationship, albeit unknowingly.
Fans often joked about the excessive "bubbles and sparkles" special effects in the anime.
