Picture: B Sound: B Extras: B Episodes: A-

Mei Tachibana doesn't have any friends and believes all friends will eventually leave and betray you in the end. That is until she catches the attention of Yamato Kurosawa, the most handsome and popular boy in school. As Mei learn to love and what it means to have relationships, they soon must face gossiping girls and others who become jealous of them. As her life gets more complicated, she wonders how three little words "I love you" can change her life so much.

In Say "I Love You.", here in its Complete Collection, Mei was a doom and gloom girl, and she isn't the prettiest girl in school, but because of that she is shrewd and honest about her feelings and that is exactly why Yamato, the most popular boy in school likes her. At first, she couldn't believe it and thought Yamato was just playing with her, but soon he proves her otherwise and they become boyfriend and girlfriend and become the talk of the school. As their new relationships buds they face various challenges and trials of jealous, hate, fear, sadness and loneliness. How can the most popular boy end up with girl who is a nobody?

This series is filled with drama, drama, drama, while the characters has wisdom and understands the risk of love, it is one thing to have knowledge, but another to experience it. A lot of times they have to deal with the social acceptance, rivals and appearances. As the main female protagonist learns slowly how to trust people and what the meaning of friendship is, and in turn helps others around her and her boyfriend.

The 1080p 1.78 X 1 digital High Definition image transfer is about as sharp and clean as any Anime Blu-ray releases we have seen to date, which can be said for the other two initial Sentai series releases we are looking at and posting at the same time, but this one is not as sharp and clear as Little Busters! despite being generally impressive. The DTS-HD MA (Master Audio) 2.0 Stereo lossless mix has some Pro Logic type surrounds, but like those others is warm, rich and just fine in two-channel as well. Extras include Mei & Marshmallow Meow, Japanese Promo, clean open and closing animation and trailers.
