ANIME CHALLENGE: DAY 95

DAY 95 - Favorite manga?

First off I only read shoujo/romance manga...
AO HARU RIDE (PLOT) -
Futaba Yoshioka used to be an attractive and popular middle-schooler—well liked by the opposite sex, but ostracized by the girls. Nevertheless, she was able to brush all that off, because the only opinion that truly mattered to her was that of Kou Tanaka, a classmate with whom she shared a shelter from rain once, followed by quite a few other precious and significant memories. She even succeeded at making plans to meet with the quiet and innocent boy at the summer festival, but a simple misunderstanding, and Tanaka's subsequent disappearance, left her walking the halls of her school friendless.
Now in high school, Futaba is not your typical adolescent girl. Determined to become a class favorite this time, she avoids all unwanted attention and, instead of acting cute and feminine, only stands out through her tomboyish behavior and disheveled look. But still, her world is soon turned upside down when the only boy she ever liked unexpectedly comes into her life once again—except he goes by the name of Kou Mabuchi now, and it is not his name alone that has gone through a sea change.

WHY AO HARU RIDE?

This was my first manga that I ever read. So, I started reading manga about a little over 2 years ago. Basically before the anime version of this manga came out I caught up with the manga. I was excited when the anime came out and was not disappointed because I loved it. The only thing I want now from the anime is to give us a 2nd season. If you've read the manga you will understand that a 2nd season can be made with what goes on in the manga. There is still so much that goes on in the manga. The storyline is really cute, I love the fact that it is about two middle schoolers who have only liked one person in their life and that is their first love. Both Kou and Yoshioka are each other's first and only love. They can't forget each other. Of course they end up together in the end which I don't think is a spoiler by the way since most manga end up that way where it's obvious that the main couple will still end up together in the end. This manga is no different from that. They go through a lot and Kou especially goes through a rollercoaster ride of emotions after losing his mom and changing completely. He almost loses his chances of ever being with Yoshioka too. There were a good bit of people who shipped Yoshioka with the 2nd male lead Touma but I was not... To be honest I didn't like him at all with Yoshioka, I think she just was forcing herself to try and like Touma but it wasn't working. In the end she still loved Kou and I loved Kou's character from beginning to end. I never stopped shipping Kou and Yoshioka! I love the art style for this manga and the high school vibe it gives off. It's the most memorable manga I read, i don't know if it's because it's the first manga I read or what but I just loved how cute, funny and emotionally attached it got me. It has a really great ending to the manga, now just give me the 2nd season! PLEASE!!! *AMV INCLUDED AT THE END OF ALL THE PICTURES*

HONORABLE MENTIONS:

Kimi Ni Todoke - Really cute and I recommend you read it after the anime. That's what I did and it makes it so much better. You get to see a KISS!
Dengeki Daisy - Very cute and an interesting plot that keeps you hooked to keep reading!
L-DK - Super adorable and fun to read if you like teen romance manga.
Taiyou no le - Cute!
Ookami Shoujo To Kuro Ouji - Another great manga that turned into an anime. Really funny and cute!

I encourage all of you to do this challenge along with me, or just say in the comments what YOUR favorite manga is!

Let Me Know! ^.^~
