Description
Having no experience in romance, the vibrant Ninako curiously explores the meaning of what "love" really is, and is surprised to feel a colorful range of emotions as she grows closer to the school heartthrob, the quiet yet gentle Ren, who also happens to be involved in a longtime relationship. With every intention of keeping her head held high, Ninako prepares to face the mental pain of this one-sided love that she had allowed to take root, facing a series of trials that would either contribute to her growth as a headstrong woman, or break her as it did with other girls.

However, is this really a one-sided love? Or had something been silently sown in the most hidden part of Ren's heart?

Volume 2 contains the side story Another Light about how Ren and Mayuka first met.

Volume 5 contains the side story Unfinished Map about Ren and Andou's friendship in middle school.

Volume 6 contains the oneshot Colourless Dreamer, which is unrelated to the main storyline.

Volume 7 contains the side story Wishing for Yesterday about Yuu and Sayuri's past.

Volume 10 contains a side story about Manabu's love.

I didn't start liking until after chapter 19
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
when his girlfriend lets him go and breaks up with him
. From that point on, I LOVED IT. SO cute. Pure innocent puppy love.Gosh.. chapter 34? Pang straight to the heart. I did find it a little draggy at some times. Certainly didn't need 10 volumes..but I'll let it slide.

I liked that
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
ninako never really considered dating andou. people are complaining about ninako keep on approaching ren even though he had a girlfriend, but i m actually fine with that. she never really made a move but stayed as a friend. and it was ren who developed feelings for her which cant be helped. i also liked it that it was mayuka who acknowledged first that it was time to move on.

anyway a nice read

Although the plot was overdone (first love, some kind of love triangle, etc) this manga somehow pulled it off without making it seem incredibly cliché. The romance wasn't the worst I've ever seen either. Most notably is that she actually ends up with the guy that treats her well.

But I had one major problem with Strobe Edge... Ninako. Not her personality, because truthfully I admire that she refuses to go out with someone she doesn't have feelings for (something that, if done, rarely ends well). It was her face. In EVERY. SINGLE. SCENE she looks like a baby! It was really off putting! What healthy highschool girl has a face like an infant's?!

Needless to say, it bothered me a lot.

Childish and terrible comments on this series, some from people having the need to compare it to Ao Haru Ride. While I feel this series is better than Ao haru ride, I love them both quite well.

Keep in mind this is my own honest opinion and preference, but I see no need to put it down just because it's being compared to Ao Haru Ride, more foolishly so, Ao haru Ride is bragged about being better than Strobe Edge that's why I question the hate towards this series.

So dull...Why is this manga so popular?!

Strobe edge is incredibly dull. The only character in this manga that is even remotely interesting is Andou. Ren is the typical, popular, cold male lead, and Ninako is nothing more than an overly optimistic, naive girl that of course falls head over heels in love with the most boring, antisocial, insignificant guy in her school. This entire manga is just about Ninako chasing after a guy that really is not all that special. Ninako completely friend zones the guys that have always cared for her from the beginning (i.e. Andou and Daiki) and instead pines after some guy that already has a girlfriend. Even though she's not a terrible character, her unrequited love and naive way of thinking is extremely irritating. She needs to get over Ren, who has about as much character and personality as a rock, and start to appreciate what she already has. If you want to read a very generic, boring, shoujo manga, then read Strobe Edge, but don't expect much.

I dont feel like reading it anymore i cant bear it. its obvious that ninako and ren will going out anyway. the story is good, i dont hate any of the character they are all good even ren ex but I just cant betray my feeling. I support andou with ninako T^T poor andou ninako never even consider him because the story lead her that way.

So much fluffiness

This manga is so fluffy!!!! Makes me sad that I didn't even have a high school crush nor love life. (TTmTT) I love Ren. I adore Andou. And Ninako wasn't so bad herself. I just love thier growth and interaction. Everything was just so creamy and mushy it oozed the romantic shoujo manga life you'd want. I totally wish I get a bf like Ren.

You'd think on an informative manga reviewing website there'd be more mature reviewers, be the comments positive or even negative. Unfortunately, some parents unintentionally let their children onto the website. That's the Internet for you.

Anyway, this manga is cute. It teaches about unrequited feelings and hope. It makes me think about people's romantic relationships these days. People seem to pick up the apples they see on the ground more often instead of actually reaching into the tree when it comes to dating.

But despite what I've said, I would recommended this manga to people who can read it without taking the characters too seriously.

Honestly, this manga is really refreshing! >< I mean, it may seem cliche, about a girl's first love, etc. HOWEVER, the progress is amazing! It's different from most of the other "first love" manga I've read. Ninako is really cute! I love her!! Anyway, highly recommended! smile

Honestly I fear that young impressionable minds will think this is a healthy way to fall in love with someone. Rejection is part of the game, so get over it! It's unhealthy to obsess over someone who is taken and not interested. Know what that's called? A STALKER!

At first I thought it was kinda cute and fluffy, but then it quickly got on my nerves. First it was the lead girl and then it was the story in general.

Sorry if this offends anyone, but I had to vent about how much I hate this manga. bigrazz
