Ao Haru Ride | Blue Spring Ride
{Anime Information)


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?

Kou was well liked in middle-school, he liked Futaba and they had a growing relationship, but then he suddenly moved away in the middle of the school year. His parents divorced and he now lives with his father (presumably he first lived with his mother after the divorce, but when starting high school he moved in with his father instead, for unknown reasons). Currently attending the same highschool as Futaba under a new last name (probably his mother's). He eventually admits to being "Tanaka-kun," and while acting cold and uncaring towards her most of the time, his nice side becomes gradually more prominent.

Futaba Yoshioka

Futaba often shied away from boys, writing them off as crude, rough and vulgar all except the mild voiced- small built Kou. They shared a brief attraction to each other.

One day Kou suddenly moved away without any notice leaving behind a stunned Futaba.

Futaba's life took a drastic turn after Kou's departure - the other boys started to take notice of Futaba's flawless face, alienating her from the rest of the girls. They began to hate Futaba and blame her eventually exiling her all together. Now in high school, Futaba is determined to not be too girly in order to avoid a repetition of what happened in her middle school years.

This is one of my most anticipated anime of the year to be honest.
And since Production IG is handling it, I am very confident the series will deliver.
Hoping we get Kimi ni Todoke-quality anime, if not, better!
Ddd I'm so excited I might cry.

Since the search (CR and Google) didn't show me anything, I thought there wasn't a thread already existing.
Welp. It took me some time to edit this so let's just have the mods merge the threads.

Oops! As you've noticed, there's already a thread. I can't actually merge this into the other, but I'm leaving this unlocked for a bit (though still in the "Closed" forum) so you can easily "edit" then Copy and paste to a new post in the existing thread here:
