Synopsis

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

Do not be fooled, my fellow Shoujo lovers--this is a refreshing manga.

The theme of "change", "love", and "friendship" have been the cornerstone for shoujo manga. In actuality, it's been repeated for so many times that the essence and beauty has lost its click. Things become cliche and repetitive, that it sends me to a rampage. Although this manga holds these overused themes, it stands out for me.

One mistake a person could make is judging a manga before they could thoroughly understand it. Let's say you've only read three chapters of it; will you judge it then? Neglecting the fact that the characters and the read more

Strobe edge and Ao Haru Ride are manga from the similar author, io-sensei. Both story is about the struggles of a teenager falling in love with the popular guy in school. Both mangas have characters with unique and strong personalities which are lovable to love and to hate. The storyline might sounds cliche but io-sensei is really the master in depicting these type of stories. The sweet moments make you happy, the sad moments make you cry. It is really amazing how the characters grows in both manga. Definitely worth reading.
Both stories involves a bit cliche romance theme wherein the girl meets the boy and they fall in love. But don't underestimate both manga. The authors have this really unique skills in getting the readers ask for more and have these 'Feels Trip' while reading the manga. It wanna makes you feel nostalgic in teens love. Both manga will give you laughter and heartaches that makes you wanna hug each character.
