Yoshioka Futaba has a few reasons why she wants to "reset" her image & life as a new high school student. Because she's cute, she was ostracized by her female friends in junior high, and because of a misunderstanding, she couldn't get her feeling across to the one boy she has ever liked, Tanaka-kun.

Now in high school, she is determined to be as unladylike as possible so that her friends won't be jealous of her. While living her life this way contentedly, she meets Tanaka-kun again, but he now goes under the name of Mabuchi Kou. He tells her that he felt the same way as she did when they were younger, but now things can never be the same again. Will Futaba be able to continue her love that never even started from three years ago?

This is my very first review, so i'm very sorry if it's not so good :)

When i started reading Ao Haru Ride, my expectations were very high since i LOVED the mangaka Io Sakisaka's previous manga. However Ao Haru Ride still succed to reach my expectations, yeah maybe even more than that. Note: I only read the 11 chapters that can be found on the internet.

Story: 9

I really like the story. I started to read this manga because i wanted a good shojo and that's exactly what i got. The story starts out with showing the past of our two min characters, Futaba & read more

I'm a huge fan of Sakisaka Io's work. There was no doubt in my mind that this was going to be an enjoyable read. The story starts out with a prologue of main character Yoshioka Futaba's life in middle school. Blah blah da da things happen and BAM! She's isolated from the girls in her class. Now in high school, she wants to change her cute, boy-attracting self and gain girl friends. She reunites with her middle school crush Tanaka Kou,(whose name is now Mabuchi Kou) but he's a big as- jerk now. The story was going great, it was flowing nicely,but it has started 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.
They're both about a girl (who has her own complexities) trying to get through to a troubled, complex boy who isn't open about how he feels. They also deal with very similar friendship groups in which each cares about the others and does their best to help them through whatever troubles they might encounter. Most importantly though, both are beautifully told stories. That's in terms of artwork as well as general organisation. :)
