At first I watched the anime and I liked Kou and Futaba together. Although we all knew from the start that they would be together in the end. But Kikuchi appeared
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
and I started to feel that he was the right person to Futaba but nowadays women seem to like men who are unkind and mean to them. I can't understand that. Kikuchi is a really nice guy, some scenes are really cute and everytime Kou appeared I started to think "go away, you are ruining Futaba chances to be happy". But I loved the romance between Makita and Uchimiya, so cute. But I didn't like the romance between Shuuko and Kominato no chemistry at all. She liked Tanaka-sensei and he liked her but they couldn't be together because he was a teacher but then he stopped being a teacher and... nothing!? After Futaba breaking up with Kikuchi I just started to flip the pages as I didn't care anymore... and Kominato sister appearing just to show that Kikuchi will have someone in the future was really, really cheap...
I was thinking about reading omoi, omoware... but now I am not so sure anymore...

This review is for the one shot. It's cute! I like that the male lead was just a push for the main to go in the right direction and not the sole purpose for her change. It's important that she wanted too than have someone say it for her.

It's hard for me to write a review since it was such a long time ago. I remember when it was released, it was one of the first shoujos i've ever read and got so attached to it. But i remember after some drama and denial parts i got tired and dropped it for some time and eventually forgot about. Then I reread it and I'm glad i did. Not sure if its just me being biased but it was nice getting a closure with this manga. so thats why I'm rating it high even tho its been a while since i reread it.

Your crush didn't show up on a date, he just went poof after that. He showed up later after a few years as a new persona, acting like a jerk to hide his 'I'm like a puppy abandoned in the rain'. And he didn't show up on a date again. Twice he asked, twice he couldn't make it. It got cancelled lightly and he got distanced again. Realistically, at this point you should move on girl. But the MC still confessed got rejected and the guy kept clinging on her. Yes, she 'tried' to move on here but as many shoujo out there, somehow she can't forget this guy, she can't move on even when there is a great guy on her side (who doesn't need your maternal instinct to save him). And she returned to the first guy's side. And it becomes a happy ending. It's a good story but no, not realistic. Very safe/standard story for shoujo.

The main selling point of this series for me is the arts. I like the artstyle and its sweet atmosphere.
Plot/story is average/very cliche, nothing special. There is part that it's getting frustrating but in the end I like the ending. Especially the Murao part.

I'm not a huge fan of shoujo, but I do read them once in a while to change my manga routine. That's why I'm probably more tolerant towards shoujo tropes, since I don't read them all the time. And this kept me reading it without feeling frustrated at all, but otherwise there's a good chance I would've dropped the manga.
The first part is your typical shoujo story of a heroine pining after the mysterious kind-of-a-jerk-but-nice male lead. It's not groundbreaking, but the characters are likeable enough, so it's all good. The first reveals were handled really well, felt real and actually managed to make me sympathize for both the main characters. Then, to stir more drama, the second part happens:
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Random guy and random girl show up out of nowhere, and a series of incredibly contrived events, combined with an egregious example of Idiot Ball, lead to a long flow of chapters that everybody alread knows won't bring anything new to the plate. The female rival is kind of a sly bastard, but really it's more on the two main's idiocy. The male rival...I'm all for kind male love interests, but this guy is so bland, he's got "plot point" written all over his face. At some point I even hoped he would turn out to be a jerkass, just to give him something. But no, he's just there, so generic that you can't even feel bad for him. In the end all this arc does is making the two MCs less likeable.

It's still readable, though, just really unnecessary.

Overall, the manga is a good read for someone who likes the genre, even if it gets dragged down a bit by its middle part.

Fianlly a manga where the girl isn't chasing after the girl or the guy after the girl and the story becoming some type of tsundere *sigh* Very realistic and most enjoyable. Thanks for a great manga to the scanlators and mangaka smile

I like it but don't love it

At first I was really into this manga. I really liked the way mangaka described growing up and the romance was really sweet. Kou's faces were unbearable cute, the art in this manga is a true masterpiece. And the fact that both parties were good-looking, just as the rivals, made it really easy to read. Maybe it's because of the things I was reading lately but I really had enough of the "ugly duck and beautiful prince" plot.
But then the drama came...
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Really, the subplot with Narumi was really badly made. I don't think Kou made a mistake trying to be there for her, it was just like his character, but the fact he turned down Futaba without explaining anything is just werid. Really, he never had any feelings for Narumi, why make Futaba think he doesn't love her? I understand why he couldn't be with her before Narumi settles in but turing cold shoulder like that is so confusing. And then it just went worse and worse. All his actions were as he was really a jerk trying to keep a girl around him even though he had no intentions on being with her. I don't think that it's possible to change boyfriends so easily like Futaba did too. Maybe it's the way mangaka showed their relationship but I feel like she was happier with Kikuchi. After how Kou acted, I don't know how could she so easily trust him again and just ignore the months she was with another. And then the accident happened. Come on, that was just too much.
If it ended there, I wouls probably give 6. But I really like the plot twist with the dream. I almost cried my heart out and noticed how much I liked the characters.
I also like how the triangle Yuichi-Murano-Aya ended. It was a good description of love towards a teacher and I really like the crybaby Aya and his honesty. Murano was a bit stiff for me, I didn't like her much. Yuuri was ok. But the best was Kikuchi. I like both him and Kou, so it was hard time to choose between them. Mangaka had me there for awhile, making him such a great guy, I really though maybe Futaba will break the shoujo manga rule of staying faithfull to the first guy. Well, mangaka made him look like Taemin, so I am not surprised at all I was cheering for him. Couldn't she have both? ;p

Anyway, together with the awaken chapters, the manga is very much complete. I really like this feeling and the fact they showed quite some things after the couple got together, not ending with them getting together.

The best thing about this series was the art. It's nice and well-proportioned. However, I found the story itself immensely boring. I think the hype around Ao Haru Ride gave me unrealistic expectations and when I actually sat down to read it, I found everything so underwhelming and cliche. Neither main leads are particularly memorable and the tone of the storytelling felt...lukewarm. It just couldn't hold my attention no matter how many chances I gave it. There are other romance series I'd recommend over this one any day. For better characters, see Ouran High School Host Club. For better drama/angst, see Boku no Hatsukoi wo Kimi ni Sasagu. For better plot, see DNAngel. A romance story can be done well, there just has to be an X-factor to it, which in my opinion Ao Haru Ride does not have.

Overall I did enjoy this manga, it kind of reminded me of Bokura Ga Ita but in a less in-depth and depressive way, however I think there were some pointless moments in the manga that the author felt the need to include so it wouldn't get somewhat boring? I do, however, think the ending was very much rushed and could have been a few more chapters toward the end building up to the conclusion so that's why I'm knocking off a few points for this one

I don't know how I would rate this manga if I was younger, but now that I have read a fair share of shoujos, I think that that there has to be something more that keeps my interest, as I just felt annoyed with the
