Synopsis of Ao Haru Ride
Futaba Yoshioka used to be an attractive student who was loved by the opposite sex but was doomed to the envy of other girls. All of this he could ignore, however, because the only opinion that really mattered to him was that of Kou Tanaka, a classmate he had once shared a shelter with in heavy rain, followed by some other precious and meaningful memories. She even managed to meet him again during a summer festival, but a simple misunderstanding and Tanaka's subsequent disappearance left her walking the halls of the school without friends.
Now in high school, Futaba isn't your typical teenager. Determined to be best in class this time, she avoids any unwanted attention and instead of appearing cute and feminine, she is characterized by her wild demeanor and unkempt appearance. But even so, her world will soon be turned upside down when the only boy she ever liked returns to her life, despite his name now Kou Mabuchi, and everything suggests that his name wasn't the only thing that changed. ..
