Synopsis

Having no experience in romance, the vibrant Ninako curiously explores the meaning of what "love" really is, and is surprised to feel a colorful range of emotions as she grows closer to the school heartthrob, the quiet yet gentle Ren, who also happens to be involved in a longtime relationship. With every intention of keeping her head held high, Ninako prepares to face the mental pain of this one-sided love that she had allowed to take root, facing a series of trials that would either contribute to her growth as a headstrong woman, or break her as it did with other girls.

However, is this really a one-sided love? Or had something been silently sown in the most hidden part of Ren's heart?

I suppose that this is a usual technique for writing 'credible' reviews, but let me tell you now that I am, in fact, a considerably jaded romance shojo (I'll be talking about 'romance shojo' in particular for this review) reader. I read any shojo title with the initial thought: "I'll drop this once it gets boring." This is because I've read quite a lot from this genre and in fact, I started my love for anime and manga with shojo.

Why, then, out of all of those titles, have I decided to leave a review for this seemingly ordinary and cliche, been-there-done-that shojo?

Strobe Edge is a story, which starts off as a seemingly normal story, a typical shoujo, but because of its superior story pacing and character development, it is able to become something special and unique.

The mangaka decides to start the story off with a very familiar situation. Ninako, a girl who is very naïve towards love, falls in love with one of the popular guys in school, Ren. At first, all seems good, but we soon find out Ren actually has a girlfriend. Then the manga introduces another boy called Andou, who loves Ninako, and thus the typical love triangle is formed.

Well, read more

They both share the same author, Sakisaka Io. High school, love triangles, great supporting cast; pretty much the exact same thing but in different flavors. For Strobe Edge, you have a girl who is hopelessly in love with the popular guy. In Ao Haru Ride, you have a girl who's trying to rekindle an old romance. They both have generic storylines but ultimately set themselves apart through top notch artwork and storytelling.
In both Manga the main character is in love with a boy who is very kind to her, but things might not be as great as they seem.

Cute stories with cute characters.
