It has officially confirmed that an anime adaptation of Io Sakisaka’s “Ao Haru Ride” shoujo manga is currently in the works! Io Sakisaka is also the creator of the amazing manga “Strobe Edge” (which deserves an anime also), this is the mangaka’s first anime adaption and it is well deserved! The manga is also ranked as one of the top 20 shoujo manga recommended by professionals in the fields of manga and publishing.
Ao Haru Ride revolves around Futaba, a girl who was in love with a boy named Kō Tanaka in middle school. However, after a misunderstanding, their relationship as friends ends when he transfers schools over summer vacation. In high school, her world is turned around once again when she meets Kō again, this time under the name of Kō Mabuchi.
I am beyond excited as this title has been such a huge favourite of mine since it’s publication! This is a such a fantastic title that has a beautiful storyline with some amazing lessons in it. This title is still being updated so please be sure to start reading the manga if you haven’t already, it will be sure to have your heart racing in no time!
