Io Sakisaka, the creator of Ao Haru Ride and Strobe Edge, is going to launch her new manga series in the July issue of Shueisha‘s Bessatsu Margaret magazine on June 13.
Strobe Edge was serialized from 2007 until 2010 with a total of 10 volumes. A live-action film adaptation, which stars Kasumi Arimura (Ninako Kinoshita) and Sota Fukushi (Ren Ichinose) will also be screened in March 2015.
Io Sakisaka started Ao Haru Ride (Blue Spring Ride) in 2011, and the series is scheduled to conclude in February this year. It also inspired an anime adaptation series which was aired in July until September 2014. Production I.G. produced the anime which had 12 episodes. Ao Haru Ride’s live-action film adaptation was also released in Japan in December last year. Tsubasa Honda and Masahiro Higashide played the characters of Futaba Yoshioka and Kou Mabuchi, respectively.
