A few days ago the cast for the live action version of hit manga “Ao Haru Ride” were decided with Masahiro Higashide confirmed as Kou Mabuchi and Tsubasa Honda confirmed as main character Futaba Yoshioka. Ao Haru Ride is kind of a play on words in Japanese because it uses the two symbols for ‘teen life’ singularly which are “Blue” and “Spring” which are written as “Ao” and “Haru”. I don’t think I really need to explain the ride part. Honda is pretty famous for her short haircut but some information has come out that she put in 20 centimetre long extensions for the movie so she could portray Futaba more accurately. Ao Haru Ride is a love story about a high school girl(Futaba) who is reunited with her first love(Kou), there’s also going to be an anime made for the series which will start broadcasting in July. I think I’d prefer to watch the live-action movie though. I am kind of curious about the manga though. Any one else heard of this series before?
