Yuki Kaji again? How many Dicks is this guy sucking to get all these protagonist voices in such a short career span!?


Short? Hasn't he been voicing lead roles since Overdrive back in 2007?

I'm so happy about this, maybe it's just me but I think Kaji Yuuki's voice doesn't fit Kou.
I can't imagine the guy with his voice, (even I love Yuuki so much).

I really like Uchida Maaya voice tone in Noragami... maybe this kind of voice she will use for Futaba? :)

Shame how it bombed so badly.

...It did?? :o


Yeah. Sold about 1k BDs and DVDs didn't rank I think. It was a complete bomb in the box office as well. The fate of shoujo anime...


It really is such a shame. I found that the film was confusing at times, but I think that it would have done better as a full anime series so they could develop the characters and the world a bit more (maybe eleven episodes or so). Still the movie delivered and it's sad that it didn't do well.

Wow seriously? I found the movie well paced and fitting as a movie. o_o Damn. Guess my tastes differ from Japan's!

“It really, really feels like a dream to have “Ao Haru Ride” be made into an anime!
Like everyone else, I want to see Futaba and the others move!!
I’m looking forward to it♡”

Kou....Same voice as Alibaba (Magi) and Eren Jaegar (Attack on Titan)


Emmm... Let's how Yuki does the voice for this cold character

This actually doesn't look too bad. Never been a huge fan of shoujo or Kaji Yuuji, but I'll give this a shot.

Studio WIT would be great too (although I guess you kinda mentioned it, since it's a branch of I.G.... but I consider it separate), considering how they animated Hal. That movie remains as one of my favourites. I really want them to do this.

What the hell.... this manga sucks (in my opinion). I wish they'd animate Strobe Edge instead as a 12-ep series.

I just hope a good studio picked this up so they can give it great animation. Otherwise it'd be such a waste of Sakisaka Io's beautiful art >.<


I hope that it's Production I.G! Or maybe Brains Base. Bones would be nice too...but not Deen. Please, not Deen.
