Blue Spring Ride Shōjo Manga Set to End

Also: original anime DVD to be set in summer during fireworks festival with Tōma

The December issue of Shueisha's Bessatsu Margaret magazine is revealing on Thursday that Io Sakisaka is about to bring her Blue Spring Ride (Ao Haru Ride) manga to a climax soon.

The magazine is also reporting that the previously announced original anime DVD will be set one summer evening after the end of the first school term, during a fireworks festival. Among other characters, Tōma Kikuchi (voiced by Yoshitsugu Matsuoka) will appear in the new anime, which is set after the recent television anime's 12th and final episode. The anime will ship in a bundle with the 12th manga volume on December 12.

Blue Spring Ride revolves around Futaba, a girl who was in love with a boy named Kō Tanaka in middle school. However, after a misunderstanding, their relationship as friends ends when he transfers schools over summer vacation. In high school, her world is turned around once again when she meets Kō again, this time under the name of Kō Mabuchi.

The television anime of Io Sakisaka's shōjo manga began airing this past July, and Crunchyroll streaming it as it aired in Japan. A live-action film of the manga is slated to open in December.
