While watching the new Netflix original, you might wonder who stars in the leading roles. As always, we’ve got you covered. We shared the complete cast list below.

From Me to You is a Japanese live-action series adapted from the beloved manga Kimi ni Todoke, written and illustrated by Karuho Shiina. This isn’t the first time the manga has been adapted into another piece of work, either. It has previously been adapted into an anime series (which can be watched on Netflix) and a live-action feature film. The plot is the same in all adaptations.

The live-action series follows Sawako, a young teen girl who wishes to make friends but has a hard time fitting in with her peers due to her gloomy behavior. However, her life suddenly takes a turn for the better when the most popular boy in school, Shota Kazehaya, takes an interest in her.
