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.

This is a really cute manga. I just read my previous comment and lol, I think I judged prematurely? Anyway, I had a lot of ugh moments, cos it gets toooo cheesy but it's okay. The art is great! I really love it, sometimes I stare at a page for a long time because everything is just really pretty. The plot is typical but it works somehow? It's not the best shoujo out there but it's not something that you could just not read. The story is passable but it's the art that really wins me over.

I've just seen the raws till vol 3 and I can't wait for more.
The story progressed somewhat in volume 2 onwards. Someone whom I thought was gonna be a main character from vol1 kinda went into the background from vol2 onwards, and a new main character emerged.

It seems like everything is moving in a nice direction, looking forward to more! ^-^

This is undoubtedly the best shoujo manga I've read! I couldn't ask for a more touching or sentimental story! Volume 01 may put you off thinking it's a typical shoujo but once you read volume 02 and up, it will literally suck you in for more!

I LOVE Strobe Edge and I can't wait for volume 5 to be out ><" ( I've re-read vol 1-4 over and over now...) No matter how many times I read it, I'm touched *nods* and this coming from someone who prefers action and humour *nods again*

This manga reminds me of "Crazy for You"! You have the main girl who is in love a boy but he is with an other girl but can't leave the main girl alone which gives the main girl hopes that he eventually likes her and an other boy who loves the main girl! Somehow like in "Crazy for You", don't you think so too??....Nothing new, but the art is great!

it's weird cuz the plot's pretty typical, but somehow i like it alot!! haha, ninako's soo cute. i like how she's all naive and stuff, but it doesn't piss me off like other dumb main heroines because she's just geniunely honest. i have no idea who she's going to go with though (i've read all three volumes and i don't think it's ren). i hope it's not one of those endings where she doesn't go with anyone. i think the 4th volume will be the last one.

If i just saw the cover i don't feel like i want to read this one. But the main guy unexpectedly is so adorable. I would be mad if she date Daiki. Hope this one not become like Parfait Tic haha. Prefer Ichi than Daiya. LOL. Just keep read this! Very interesting and nice. But duh it seems vol 2 is not as i expected sob sob.

Sigh, I did it again. Started another manga that's not finished. However, yes, this manga so far is very good. Let's just hope it stays that way, and strays away from the love triangle, fan-abusive world that is shoujo. Yes, I know, there's already the potential for one with her friend. But I'm letting that one slide because she realizes (I hope) that she only like him as a friend.

As good as this is, I can't help but feel anxious about the future.
