So far, this is one of the best stories. There are a lot of characters' introduction here. I was delighted to read more about the protagonists.

Recommended to shoujo lovers.

In middle school Futaba Yoshioka thought all boys were loud and obnoxious... except for Kou Tanaka. They agree to meet to go to a summer festival together but he never shows up. Fast forward to high school where she meets Tanaka again, but he's totally different and that even includes his name! Will they be able to rekindle what they had in the past?!

The Premise

In Ao Haru Ride vol 5 we continue the romantic love triangles by forming new ones
I knew there would be a love triangle, but I thought I'd dislike the other guy a lot more .... but I like him. I'm still team Kô, but yeah.
It's still super cute and adorable!

Another great volume in the series, I enjoyed it, but at the same time I am upset to have read it this late. I want to fit in as much reading as I can, but I picked the wrong time to read it. School starts tomorrow, which means I'm probably gonna get a lot of homework. *Sobs* But, I will try to read as much as possible, I am so behind on my reading challenge and a good way to catch up is reading mangas and graphic novels. I want to read as many novels I can, I'm behind on so many series like ...more

Oh, shoujo romance, how you manipulate me into hating new characters before they've spoken a word!

The tropes, particularly the Jealousy trope, were strong in this volume. I trust this mangaka, and I am invested in the journey that these characters are on. I'm ready for volume 6!

Review On Chapters 16-19
Thank you Bikkuri! and Chibi Manga for the scans!

Greetings, lovely ones reading this review! I spent my time yesterday and this Halloween morning reading Volume 5. And here I am, tryin' to calm down from fangirling. *fangirl squeal*

Note this is a review for chapters 16-19 (volume 6) ONLY ! (view spoiler) Expect a stampede of fangirl thoughts here.

Here it goes!!

1) Okay. Touma must be
Leanne Crabtree
Huh, what is it with the fact that just as something is about to happen between Kou and Futaba that they always get disturbed!

I have to admit I'm still loving this manga, the five of them as a group are quite cute with their friendship. I'm not too sure about the new guy and his interest in Futaba though. I'm still firmly Team Kou, even when he is being an arse.

Off to start #6

Surely my favorite manga among the ones I've been reading and this volume is keeping it up, even though it wasn't as exciting as the previous one, so I'd call it a rounded-up 3.5. Still, the scenes with the main couple are totally wort it, any reader would fall in love with the chemistry between Futaba and Kou. It's also a very quick read so much you feel engrossed, you won't regret giving this a try.

If you haven't read the first volume yet, this is the story of Futaba, who meets her first love

Teen angst and fluffy feels

OMG!! I love Ao Haru Ride. I watched the anime before ever reading this series online a few years back. This manga is so good. It’s been awhile since I read this, but it’s definitely one worth re-reading. There are so many subtle things going on that I missed the first time. It’s so angsty in the best possible way. The way this mangaka does such a wonderful job of portraying teenagers trying to navigate the rights and wrongs of relationships. How to be a loyal friend

This is new content for me since this takes the characters beyond the anime content and it was amazing!!!
The art is as amazing as always and also the new characters were great in every sense!!! They are growing, choosing their owns paths and finding how they want to be and with whom.
I have become addicted to this manga and I have no shame!
The new plot line seems great and I honestly can't wait to see more!
Give me more Kou please!!
Courtney (courtney & books)
I love this series! I especially loved this volume and how people work through their feelings. Yes this book has angst and romance, but it’s so much more about Futaba and her friends coming into their own as people and I just love that! I love that these kids make mistakes and say the wrong thing and just learn! Such a good series!!!

Just when you think things are going great between our main characters, Kou throws in a monkey wrench. No spoilers but I understand he went through a traumatic experience with grieving and loss and wanting to help others who are in pain is noble but is it noble or easy? I can't wait for the next one!
Chelsea Morrison
This series is a perfect example of a manga that I had mixed feelings about in the beginning and then fell in love with. Seriously, I loved this so much that it probably rivaled LOVE SO LIFE. This has officially gone on my to-buy list.

I’ve reached it: the point where I’ve read enough volumes in a series that it all starts to seem repetitive and I look for a faster pace. I’ll read the next book but can see how I may give the series up sooner rather than later.
