Description
Yoshioka Futaba has a few reasons why she wants to "reset" her image and life as a new high-school student. Because she's cute and had a demure personality she was ostracized by her female friends in junior high, and because of a series of misunderstandings and mishaps, she couldn't get her feeling across to the one boy she has always liked, Tanaka Kou.

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 that they cannot go back. Will Futaba be able to continue her love that never even started from three years ago?

It's still to early to decide but I'm hoping that Futaba remains a strong female lead and doesn't crumble all over the place for Kou. So far, the art is this manga's highest selling point. I'm not really as excited about the story, but again it's still early and I might end up loving this later.

first chapter had a promising start,the characters and the story as well. But when the next chapter started,it's like I was reading a different manga. Typical Heroine,who needed to be saved and encouraged by the very typical cold-but-kind-inside male lead. But I gave it another go and I dropped it. Both characters are annoying.

I really love this manga! I love how sakisaka io pays attention to the subtle details which make the manga come to life in a way that i think many other shoujos don't ever really get to. It's a story that really gets to you and i would definitely recommend this manga because it's one of my favourites at the moment! Her art is beautiful and her characters are lovely and though the story isn't a very complex one, its a very captivating read.

I like shoujo just as much as the next person but the only thing that makes me mad about the heroine is when the girl make's the guy the center of her attention!! It's like she is completely obsess with him!! (following him, watching him, dreaming about him!!) and the guy have no interest in her and he pays her little attention. Get a hint, that he is not interested in a relationship.

Knowing this is a shoujo I should have dampened my expectations, but initially I thought the premise was good only if the author made good use of it, but it seems as with any other shoujo it's heading down the same generic path. Seriously why do they have to make almost all shoujo heroines a ditz?! I suppose it's still to early seeing that there a few releases. So fingers crossed.

I liked strobe edge because it was refreshing, cute and had lovely artwork with a breezy feel.
I had high hopes for this one as well, but lately the direction its heading is making me skeptical..
Its become cliche and the main female is heading into the annoying heroine zone sad

This manga is slightly cliched. All the scenarios are a lot alike other mangas, but i think the message that the mangaka is trying to get across is really beautiful. I really do hope that in further chapters the characters will appear more than they are, especially the main who i think is a very different type of female lead in the sense that she is trying to make friends but also cliched in that everything she does needs to be helped my kou in some way and that makes her stronger.
The latest chapter, chapter seven, the end was a real let down. I hope the mangaka can redeem herself because i really do like aoharaido. BTW I LOVE HER DRAWING STYLE.

EDITS-- no no, i'm sorry i'm disappointed this manga has left me in a bad mood as the latest chapter (chapter 11) is completely annoying. HOW COULD THEY BOTH LIKE HIM. I didn't like that but then this THIS. OMG if they did something i will drop this manga. If you don't know what i'm talking about read chapter 11.

I have to admit, I was never the greatest fan of Sakisaka's works, but I think this one has finally earned her my affection. The female lead is just wonderful, and while not being cliche, you can tell that the author didn't try her hardest to make it such (those are even worse than the cliche stories, in my opinion). This, I think is probably going to be her best work, simply because I can feel the friendship and deepening relationships in it.
The female lead, surprisingly (in terms of shoujo manga), is very likeable. She actually thinks and learns from her mistakes, forging forward on her own while trying to help everyone else along without being pushy. Along with all these good personality traits, she's also cute, which is always a plus because in shoujo, beauty and brains never seem to go together with this kind of manga––the kind that's realistic. (Somewhat, because it's shoujo).
The male lead, though he might seem somewhat cliche seems quite perceptive, and less annoying than the majority of male leads. His interactions of her are either comedic, ridiculously cute, or almost heart-pulling. It's actually quite interesting.

In a nutshell, if you're a shoujo fan, try it.

I don't really agree with those who say Sakisaka makes cliche manga.
Cliche means doing something trite and unoriginal without bothering to make it make sense or be realistic...
It's not necessarily "cliche", for example, to have the hero win, even if it has been done a million times. It CAN be cliche-- but just because it's been done doesn't make it cliche. There's room for freshness and originality even in the most standard plot devices, depending on how the mangaka portrays them.

Now, I'll be the first to admit that shoujo manga is awash in mangaka who use the standard plot devices in the most nauseatingly cliche ways imaginable.

But I don't think Sakisaka is one of them. I'll admit that the end of Strobe Edge started to veer into that territory... But in general I think her characters are rounded and real enough to make standard situations feel fresh. Ao Haru Ride is no exception.

Yes, Kou is a standard male lead--- but unlike thousands of similar male leads, he feels like slightly more than a cardboard pin-up, in terms of having his own personality that isn't entirely one-dimensional and his own life outside of being the target of the romantic attraction.
And Futaba is a sympathetic female heroine who can actually make mistakes and take responsibility for her own actions. She's not thoughtlessly blushy or retardedly air-headed... She doesn't drive me up the wall, which says something, since so many shoujo heroines do. She's likable enough to carry the manga on her own sake.
