Sawako and Kazehaya didn’t get married in the anime. However, Sawako can be seen with a promise ring during the final pages of the manga. This could symbolize their promise to eventually marry later on in their lives. Sadly, there wasn’t a future preview to confirm whether or not they truly did settle down with their lives together.
What is Kimi ni Todoke about?
Kimi ni Todoke (From Me to You) tells the story of Sawako and her self-discovery through the help of Kazehaya, her love interest. Kuronuma Sawako has always been ostracized by her classmates because of her name, mannerisms, and appearance which heavily resembles that of the ghost Sadako (from the film Ring). She finds it hard to clear this misunderstanding because people tend to run away or apologize profusely when approached. This resulted in her getting used to being ignored by her classmates. Despite this, she remains to be a bubbly and nice person towards others.
When she met and got closer to Kazehaya, she slowly started to gain confidence in herself. She even gained friends such as Chizuru and Ayane, who became best friends with Sawako. From that point on, they would continue to hang out and eventually date each other. It’s a slow-burn romance anime that will leave you wanting more!

Did Sawako and Kazehaya Get Married in the Anime?

It also showed Kazehaya running toward her to say their goodbyes to each other even though he lives far away from the station. They parted with Kazehaya giving a letter and a key to Sawako. The series ended with both of them meeting with each other.
