I REALLY want them to localize this to the US. I hate reading scanlated manga. I like owning the physical copies. Hoping that Viz licenses it soon. I'm loving the anime!

When I first started the anime I was pretty mind blown at how Futaba was so brave in dealing with her fake friends. I actually went and read all 40 something chapters in one night. It's just a super relatable manga/anime to me. I searched Baka Updates and it's not licensed yet. :'( I would totally get this even though I haven't been keeping up with my manga collection in awhile.

This is going on for so long now. Can't Futaba just end up with Mabuchi faster? xD

I don't know about other shoujo manga titles, but this little quote from the weekly manga ratings from May 19 - 25 tells a compelling story about why Ao Haru Ride would drag on and on:


*3. 235,903 *,235,903 Ao Haru Ride Vol.10


Then, if you look at the week of July 7-13:

37. *21,243 *,595,986 Ao Haru Ride Vol.10


Anything that sells that many copies is going to keep going for a while.

well yeah that would explain series like Skip Beat and Ah! My Goddess... imo it ruins a good story when it drags.

same for shounen...

I just finished reading the whole thing last night. Started at 10pm, finished at 4am. So worth it. I totally get what you say about it being relatable. Futaba is really a strong lead and is hardly pitiable and victimised which i really admire. Kou is also a great male lead - a bit of a tease. Love it!

The manga is killing me right now. Narumi is irritating me and Touma just needs to... leave -_-

Eh, definitely a great read though. Some parts I do see as relatable. Next chapter needs to come quick~

Chapter 43 is outttt .. Finally Kou is done with that bitch narumi , now let's see how the author will get back kou and futaba together and if she doesn't i will never ever read any of her work and I think many are going to do the same

Now we have to wait another month...sigh...

I liked Ao Haru Ride at first (like the first 30 chapters). But then the story just started to drag and Touma and Narumi got really annoying and irritable.
I feel like the addition of new characters just completely ruined the manga for me.

Watched the anime before reading the manga, hoping to get caught up. Love the characters!

Well, after watching the most recent episode of the anime, I gave in. Binged through all the chapters of the manga today. Don't regret it one bit! Love the series! Really wish that...
