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, she was ostracized by her female friends in junior high, and because of a misunderstanding, she couldn't get her feeling across to the one boy she has always liked, Tanaka-kun.

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 now things can never be the same again. Will Futaba be able to continue her love that never even started from three years ago?

this feels weird reading the ending. It's not bad. The beginning had more gushy mushy "YOU BETTER FEEL IT" feeling in it. The ending feels gently sweet and conclusive. 

So I read the entire manga. I LOVES the first chapters, they really felt like magic, all those feels & this poetry... And then...

Check the spoiler tag, mate.

WTF? Then it gets all awkward and weird and I have to wait 30 FRIGGIN' CHAPTERS FOR THE MAIN CHARACTERS TO EVEN BE TOGETHER??? And then it's the END? AAAAAAAAAAAH hat a waste of time. Other than that, some mature action on the part of the heroine, who's still pretty forward and expresses herself quite clearly. That was refreshing. What a shame though that it got so awkward afterwards.

Finally reach the ending, and I feel soooooo tired... =_=

EXTREMELY LONG comparison of the manga, anime, and live action film (spoiler central so only read if you've seen all three/ don't mind having things spoiled for you)

 

They all had things they did really well, and by the same token, they all had certain elements that I could've done without. I wouldn't say any of them were perfect masterpieces, but I do like the manga the best of all of them since I feel it has the complete story of Futaba and Kou's romance.

If any of you are confused about why I ranked the manga first when I had so many more negative things to say about in comparison to the other two, the anime was a bit short for me and I was searching for the added development the manga provided, and the live action diverged a lot from the manga. I enjoyed the creative choices they made, but I wouldn't consider them a replacement for canon manga events.

I did start reading from chapter 1 after reading Awaken 3

 

My feelings exactly. 

somehow after that awaken 3 i feel like reading the story all over again

I agree with this.

 

I liked the overall story just a lot more of Strobe edge.

For me one of the key things about Strobe Edge was outside of the story (which is unusual for  me).  There was often something about the combination of art, sound effects, and sort of basic, sensory mental dialogue that made the MC's emotions punch me in the gut, just come out of the page, bypass my mind and impact.  It seemed to bring me the physical state she was in from her feelings, making the experience raw and strong.  Another mangaka handling the exact same scenes, maybe even with more sophistication, might have had a tepid result.  That wasn't there so much in this one.

*le sigh* I swear, if there was one sentence that I feel like I'd like to tell the most manga characters, it's, "Doll, chances are, for every person you help smile through self sacrifice, there's someone who you made cry, so you should really just go with your own feelings".

This is way too cute for how infuriating it gets in the last half

Don't or can't understand why all of you girls like this thing, but for me this has to be one of the worst shoujo mangas that I've ever read in my life, it was a very very bad ride 

I don't really understand the reason behind its popularity either (maybe its because of the author's previous works?), but I wouldn't call it a very very bad ride.

 

Also, I'm pretty sure plenty of readers here are male.

if you honestly think this is one of the worst, you clearly haven't read very many, lol.

I was confused by the new chapter (49.5) since the story is over, but in case anyone else was wondering, it's just a cute little several-page extra featuring the main couple of Aoharu alongside the main couple of Strobe Edge.

I read the last chapter while listening to the anime OP, best decisión ever >w<

~~SEKAI WA KOI NI OCHITEIRU~~

No but seriously, i'm not into shoujo (i f!cking hate it) but this is pretty good, Kou x Futaba 4EVA

~~HIKARI NO YA MUNE WO SASU~~

I was waiting for a development for Kominato/Murao! I'm so sad about this ending! I really enjoyed this manga but... I wanted moooooooooore!

Well, nice fluffy ending, and I think overall pretty good.  I don't think this hit the heartbeat-o-meter as hard as Strobe Edge, but good nonetheless.

 

I agree with this.

Strobe Edge Spoilers!!

While I do have more connection with Kou character, since my mom also died young, so I kinda understood his point of view. I liked that part of the story the most, how Kou grow in this story. While I didn't like all the things he did, I can at least understand his reasons.

 

All in all nice story, do hope the next story will capture me more like Strobe Edge did.

DAT ENDING DOE.

 

I kinda wanna see it colored.

 

I also kinda wish it took the twist turn. The whole story could've gotten REALLY interesting then!

Aww.

 

The beginning, well that would have been a decent end too, but I'm happy it was the classic happy end.

It was a great ride! ;P

 

I will miss it :'C

No se, me cae mal Futaba diciendo que "cargara con la culpa de su desiciòn" como haciendose la mártir cuando el que en realidad sufrió fue mi bebe Touma. Pero bue. :v Ese era el final que debía ser, supongo... 

Well, nice fluffy ending, and I think overall pretty good.  I don't think this hit the heartbeat-o-meter as hard as Strobe Edge, but good nonetheless.

I almost had a heart attack because of that chapter's beginning. Not cool man, not cool.

mehhhhhhh I don't like how the mangaka tried to indicate a pairing for tohma at the last minute. It just feels so...contrived. :< my poor bby

 

But other than that, the ending was cute. A little unsatisfactory, because I wanted to see them after they graduated (like 5 years in the future would be nice), but cute.
