The thing I love about Aozora Yell is that the characters don't follow the stereotypes of a shoujo manga. The lead is earnest and determined, but frets about things and breaks down like a normal human being. She's unlike a protagonist whose head is filled with romance, nor is she a superhuman with the best grades or the most talent. She's an absolute novice at what she wants to do, and yet she doesn't give up, with the encouragement of Yamada, the male protagonist.
What I like about this manga is that the story is believable. It's realistic, it's simple and that's exactly why it's fresh. It tells the story of a student's passion in her club activities, and how one strives to do her very best despite setbacks. Sure, it indeed sounds like any other manga, but there's just simply something special about this that's hard to describe.
There aren't any clear antagonists, and the side characters all have a life of their own as well. They aren't detestable, but they get angry, they make errors just like any other normal human being. And that in itself contributes to the story. Though there are some cliched themes, but I feel that they didn't drag the story down, but gave life to it.
What sets this apart from a typical shoujo manga, apart from its realistic characters, is the ''life'' in it. Aptly titled Aozora Yell, when I read this manga, I felt like I could really see the sky. If a sky were to be given a manga, this would be it. A breath of fresh air. read more
