From Me to You explores the idea of love and youth. It is a representation of the eruption and implosion of love in repressed teenagers and how a certain sense of understanding is essential for them to know how to feel loved. The anime is more than just a typical love story, where it manages to explore the human condition of loneliness and discrimination grounded in stereotypes, which is being subverted by the inclusion of a character who manages to introduce the counter-idea of love into the narrative.
