Anime: Ao Haru Ride - アオハライド

9:44 AM






Hey lovely people on the internet! It's me Jenny!

"The scent of air after the rain...
I heard your pulse, I saw the light."

Well, I'm extremely obsessed with the manga 'Ao Haru Ride', also known as 'Blue Spring Day' and its anime version! I finished watching the anime in 1  day (yeah in only 1 day!) and I finished reading the manga in 1 day, too!! #nosociallife

I fell in love with it! It's one of my favorite animes! It is such a cute love story, which is packed with drama and tears. Plus, I love how 'unsocial' people find true friendship and how Kou (the male lead) deals with his past experiences.
Chiba Youdai as Touma Kikuchi *o*

Well, there is a movie adaption, too! full package  (*-*) But one thing I don't like is that Kou's actor is so old!! -.-  He's 26 and plays a 16-year-old boy o.o wtf... In my opinion he isn't suited to play Kou, but he is still a great actor!! They should have casted someone else, because Kou is my hero! BUT  Touma is such an eye candy in the movie! He is freaking handsome!!






Plot: (9/10)
The girl on the left is Yoshioka Futaba.
The blonde boy is called Touma Kikuchi.
The black haired one is Kou.


Yoshioka Futaba has a few reasons why she wants to "reset" her image and 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?




Well, the story caught me, because I'm the typical shoujo lover. Love Triangle, Drama, Friendship and Comedy = my perfect combination.

It may sound ordinary, but this story is packed with a lot of unexpected twists and turns. A great thing is that you can see how true friendship works and how to deal with bad past experiences. The characters face a lot of issues, which a lot of people can relate to. It has got a lot of funny and sad scenes, which made me laugh out loud or cry my heart out! 
The creators made a great anime adaption. I've read the manga until 48 and the manga will end soo. I think the last chapter will be published in March! my heart isn't ready!! 




Art (10/10):
Well, they did a perfect job!!  The colors are the best! My eyes were mesmerized with the beauty of this anime! They look exactly like in the manga, but they still have got their anime style features! 
PERFECTION
Just watch the opening theme and you will agree with me 100%!



Music ( 10/10):
HEAVEN- only one word to describe it! It enhaces every moment in the anime perfectly! The opening, which is named ' Sekai wa Koi ni Ochiteiru', is a bright and catchy song! btw it's my new ringtone lol
Plus, the soundtrack ' I Will' makes me cry everytime I hear it. It's touching and full of emotions! 


Characters: (9/10)
Each character was unique in its own way and I love how they had a different story and love route. As I said twice, it's nice to see the characters develop so much.
My favorite character is probably Kou! I don't know why, but I can't get over him lol  MY FEELS




Overall:

You definitely need to watch/read it! I can't let go of it and I keep rewatching and rereading it! :) It hit me right in the feels haha! still drowning in feels
It is a wonderful and touching story!


Question: What do you think of 'Ao Haru Ride'?
Much love, Jenny

    I think Ao Haru Ride is one of my favs next to Kimi No Todoke. I live for Slice Of Life animes lmao. Awkward moment when Slice Of Life animes have better lives than you. :( hahaha

  14. *-* Holyyy the actor who is playing Touma looks like him ♡♡♡ I started reading Ao Haru Ride when it first came out, but I lost track of where I left of, so I need to catch up.

    I love strobe edge (another manga but from the same mangaka) but for both stories the artwork is so cute.
