Shoujo series Ao Haru Ride receives first promo video


I hadn't heard of it either, but it looks pretty good!

You guys know me. I love horror and shoujo manga, and all kinds of stuff in between. I hadn't heard of Ao Haru Ride, however,it looks like something I might want to tune into, especially given the art style. The official site for the anime adaptation began streaming the video above today, and it prompted me to give the original manga a look.

Futaba, your every day high school girl, was in love with a guy named Ko Tanaka way back in high school, but at some point they lost touch when he transferred to another school. Such is life. I'm sure we all have one or two of those people in our lives, don't we? When Futaba gets to high school, she meets Ko again, except he's got a different last name: Mabuchi. Sounds like some dramarama is poised to ensue. The manga has been running since 2011, so there should be plenty of content to wade through for the anime adaptation.

All in all, looks like something I want to get all up in. I just hope they're star-crossed lovers and less tsundere girl and jerky boy. That would be super annoying.
