Interview with Ao Haru Ride's Io Sakisaka, part 1: Unstoppable heartbeat! Adults who can't forget youth ride on it!!
Futaba is a first-year high school student who can’t forget her first love, “Tanaka-kun.” For the first time in three years, she reunites with him, and his last name, voice, and atmosphere had completely changed. Will they be unable to go back to the good old times? First love, failed love, friendship… a coming-of-age love story that rules all, bringing along the sour-sweet heart-wrenching from high school times, Ao Haru Ride. It’s not only popular with girls in their teens, but has also captured the hearts of adult women in their 20s and 30s, a direct impact on Io Sakisaka, the creator of a work that has gotten extreme attention and has printed more than the cumulative total of 7,500,000 copies of the comic.
