Synopsis


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

Been reading this manga for years now. It has some cliche moments but the drama overall maintains a balanced tone with a small yet colorful cast of characters. Production IG is adapting this so I have high hopes for it. I'm expecting this to at least adapt to chapter 30+ even if it's a 1 cour.

The manga is quite good, though the current arc is getting a wee bit tiresome.

The troubling news is that the official web site seems to indicate that the series will be one cour. That could lead to either an anime-only ending, an incomplete feeling ending, or a complete and total hatchet job that covers the details in such a sketchy manner it is barely recognizable. (See Kimi no Iru Machi for the third type... I did like the KnIM anime, but it was a hatchet job!)



Our best hope is for something akin to the Nisekoi formula: Cover enough of the story to get to the point where
Then hope for a 2nd season timed conveniently with the end of the manga so it will cover the rest of the story and boost sales of the manga as well. Not that Ao Haru Ride needs a boost! It is HUGE!

I think it is only 1 cour but since the manga has about 40 translated chapters so far (idk how many for raws though), it's probably for the best case although I would of preferred 2 cour. Well, there's still an OVA so 13 episodes total. In due time, we might get season 2 in the future.

Chapter 41 comes out in Japan in about 3 days. The scanalation is current with the manga. However, it isn't like it is 40 chapters of 18 page weekly manga. It is 40 chapters of ~40 page monthly manga where, for the most part, a TON happens in each chapter. It is NOT anything like Nisekoi, where the vast majority of the chapters are fluff and don't move the plot along. each chapter contributes to the story in a significant way and, will most likely, be best covered if they do a single episode per chapter. If that's the case, they won't get ANYWHERE in 12 episodes. Even if they compress things, there is no way they can get to the conclusion of the story in 12 episodes without taking HUGE shortcuts and cutting out a ton of stuff.

It's not like they can even do what Suzuka did and


I'm just frustrated in advance...
