Io Sakisaka, mangaka of series Ao Haru Ride and Strobe Edge, is starting a new manga series titled Omoi, Omoware, Furi, Furare. The first chapter will be serialized in July's issue of shoujo magazine Bessatsu Margaret on June 13. The upcoming issue of the magazine, to be released on May 13, will include information on the premise of the new manga.

The tagline reads
Which is the love you will chase?

Synopsis
The story centers around Yuna and Akari who have two very different views of love: Yuna is someone who sees love as a dream and Akari is someone who is very realistic about her romance choices. Meanwhile, there are two boys, Kazuomi and Rio, who also have different views of love: Kazuomi's an airhead and doesn't understand the concept of love, while Rio grabs the opportunity when confessed to as long as the girl looks cute.

Sakisaka has been publishing manga under Shueisha's Margaret Comics label since 2001, with her single-volume Call My Name. Her most notable works are Strobe Edge, which ran from June 2007 to August 2010, and Ao Haru Ride, which ran from Jan 2011 to Feb 2015. Ao Haru Ride was adapted to a TV anime series in Summer 2014. After, all eight released volumes ranked 5th or higher on Oricon's Weekly Manga charts. Sakisaka also drew the original character designs for the Summer 2013 movie Hal.

For some reason I wasn't/couldn't be impressed with/by her manga Strobe Edge and AHR, and this one sounds meh as well. Plot with both female and both male with extreme-ish opposite side, that doesn't sound too interesting. I am not fond of her art style too.

Hopefully this one is more interesting than your typical love polygon.

Wonder if Strobe Edge will get an anime adaptation someday.

Regarding this news, I guess I'll look forward to it. I did enjoy both the manga and anime by the author for Ao Haru Ride.

Well, her starting a new work was already announced previously, but now there are two heroines, huh? I wonder how that will affect the length. And here I thought this one would feature just one dark-haired female protagonist for once... At least this means there will be some characters visually different from the previous ones for once~

I doubt it since it already got one (but not anime) adaption...

Same here, however I'm hoping I'll have a better time reading this one; I like the art.
I don't want to be disappointed once more... OTL

Edit 2:
Just noticed that neither of the four characters has those lines around the eyes she was drawing previously! (*゚Д゚艸) If that will also be the case for the actual serialisation... good job! ∑d(゚д゚*)

I really doubt it, a lot of the time manga get anime adaptions to help promote the manga. I think if Strobe Edge was going to get one it would have been a while ago.

About this news, I'll definitely check it out because I love her artwork and it is interesting that there are two female leads. I just hope she focuses more on character development and less on unnecessary drama [s]*cough* Ao Haru Ride *cough*[s].

If it turns out just as decent as AHR, then it'll be worth the read.

I like her style but I feel that her manga lose steam half way. Both Strobe Edge and Ao Haru Ride had a strong opening followed by the typical lengthy love triangle you find in most shoujo manga.
Still I'll surely check this out.

Was interested in Ao Haru Ride for a short while and disliked Strobe Edge, but the synopsis sounds interesting. A bit cautious since I've already read enough love stories involving two girls and two boys.

I really liked both Ao Haru Ride and Strobe Edge, so I am definitely looking forward to it. The synopsis doesn't impress me though. I really like the fact that the two main characters have different features than in her previous works (for example Ren and Kou were very similar).

Nope, I'm not looking forward to this. Strobe Edge was nice, albeit a bit too much drama sometimes and Ao Haru Ride was far worse as it went on.

I hope this one is good.

She should only focus on drawing and leave the story elements to someone who clearly knows better ,otherwise it would seem were gonna get the same exact manga a third time...

Agreed, I also considered that. If she were to solely focus on the art part, I can imagine that she could make much better use of her potential, improving the overall result along with it.

Ao Haru Ride was great until that one female character was introduced. It was a complete mess from there on. I might read this just to see what it's like, but I've got incredibly low expectations.

Still haven't read Strobe Edge, so before I start reading her new work I guess I should start with Strobe Edge first.

Her main male love interests always seem to annoy me, but it looks cute so I'll give it a go.

So one of the male MC will be an airhead and the other male MC will probably have a tough guy personality....

I wonder who the female fans will ship the female MC with... >__>

As long as it does not turn out annoying like Ao Haru Ride. I hope the author won't repeat a similar situation to Futaba, Kou, Narumi and Touma.
