Strobe Edge, Vol. 9 (Strobe Edge, #9) by Io SakisakaNo.
Okay Im making this sound like it was a bad book. Trust me, 5 stars and Theresa, hard to come by. BUT THIS THING WAS LIKE . . . . . . . jeez, this is the number one romantic manga.
I mean other romantic mangas, it doesnt really show this much about a girls feelings, its just dramatic. And romance isnt the big part.
Like romance would just be a side thing in the story.
BUT THIS IS BEAUTIFUL.
BUT . . . BUT THE FEELING IT GAVE ME AT THE END WAS NOT
NOT freaking beautiful.
((*Whispers)) No...NO DONT SAY IT THERESA!!!!!
Dude, it really looked like it was going to be settled in this book and it wouldnt pull at my heart with a freaking cliffhanger. I was PRAYING
No cliffhanger, please let us know, please please please please please please please--
OF COURSE MY PRAYER WAS . . . . . . . . . . . . . WAS OUT OF VAIN.
SORRY PEOPLE, this will most definitely have spoilers in it and really...this is the sort of story you DONT want to be spoiled with.
Just...PLEASE LEAVE IF YOU HAVENT READ THIS YET.
Unless you dont like the smell of books or youre too lazy to hop on mangafox (I could do that to relieve this horrible cliffhanger thing because volume 10 is already on there but JEEZ i cant because I just love pages more...), or youre just...you just dont like stories.
SPOILED MILK! (*makes a grouchy face)
So yeah. Spoilers ahead...
I already knew that Ren would confess to Ninako. I ALREADY KNEW. I just hoped that it wouldnt leave off a cliffhanger in the end. Something cliche like
Ren: Ninako . . . . . . . . please be my girlfriend.
*Bottom of page: END OF VOL 9/END OF SOME READERS LIVES BECAUSE IT IS A CLIFFHANGER WHETHER OR NOT THEY SAW IT COMING
But when I read that scene . . . where Ren confessed to Ninako and she responded . . . I was like WHOO! Theres not gonna be a cliffhanger!
And then the end of the book smacked me across the face.
But still though. The way that Ninako responded--JEEZ! SHE needs a slap in the face.
(*Conscience: HEY, Theresa! THERESA! This is a review, not a rant about characters! Especially characters you think are so ultra cute . . .)
Right right right, conscience . . .
So here we go:
1. I do love this story. This entire story. This . . . . . . it is weaved beautifully, and is very relatable, and even if its not, you can learn a lot about love in this book.
Remember when Taylor Swift used to write a bunch of romance music and there was like a Taylor Swift song for EVERY SINGLE FREAKING KIND OF RELATIONSHIP?!
Well this is even better than those Taylor Swift songs . . .
2. The art is still as stunning as ever. I should probably keep copies of Strobe Edge just a little longer so I can get some art tips from this lady BECAUSE SHE IS AN AMAZING ARTIST.
LOOK AT THEIR HAIR.
Their eyes . . . their emotions . . . their souls . . . . (*sigh)
3. THIS BOOK ISNT A CLICHE SHOUJO.
These girls . . . these CHARACTERS . . . they all look as if they have a personality. A BELIEVEABLE personality, you almost wish they were real.
You can see them! YOU CAN IMAGINE THEM! IN JAPAN! Living out this story in real life right this second!
YOU WISH they were real.
Now volume 9 was beautiful. But I do want to give some advice. Since love has slapped me in the face numerous times, but has also held me close to its chest and clutched gently onto my heartbeat (as well as strangled it, but let us continue . . .)
1. Ninako tries to deny her feelings--both so that her friends dont get torn apart between her and because she wants them both to be happy.
I dont think it is easy to be in a love triangle at all. In fact IT SUCKS.
This isnt the love triangle where she has to choose between them. We ALL know shes got the sweltering hots for Ren, but she has a personality.
She doesnt just spend only 2 pages rejecting Ando.
And Andou being the very determined guy who TRULY LOVES NINAKO and isnt just there for drama (although he causes a lot of drama) doesnt just give up on her.
But in a situation where she knows that Andou likes her and that she likes Ren, and the fact that she doesnt think her feelings are going anywhere to getting Ren to becoming her boyfriend, she wants to at least let them both be friends.
Because yes. It sucks to be the girl in the middle.
And yes. It is dramatic.
But she handles it. It is clear what her intentions are.
Shes not indecisive like many unstable characters. Shes small, BUT SHES STRONG.
And her unselfishness pretty much makes her a more likable person--who really does care for the people around her.
THE ADVICE THOUGH, as you can see here, is that NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES NINAKO TRIES TO DENY HER LOVE, IT WONT GO AWAY.
Love is a bug.
Its stuck in your heart like a parasite.
Itll suck the life right out of you. But it can also help you live.
Once you got it, youre stuck. Once youre touched, youre touched--like a white wall that has been splattered with bright colored paint.
And sure you can paint over that, but unless you paint layer upon layer upon layer, the bright colors are just gonna bleed through and theyre not going to go away.
Just take that into mind.
If its hard to get over somebody--or you CANT get over them, the feeling is genuine.
I mean you cant easily break through a genuine diamond right?
2. Andou constantly fights for a girl that is in love with someone else.
And it really sucks being in his spot, I bet. He keeps trying and he keeps persisting. And he keeps telling Ninako his feelings, and half of me finds him a little . . . a little naiive about that kind of thing (explain in a second . . .) but another part wants to tear up because Ninakos feelings for Ren are stubborn and theyre not gonna go anywhere.
Andou is naive because he kept constantly asking her, How do you want me to love you or Choose me instead.
Which makes me want to cry because he is willing to do ANYTHING.....
But the sad thing is if Ninako really did give up on Ren to choose Andou, itd be like Andou was her second choice, or her safety net.
And trust me, Ive personally been classified or looked at as a SECOND CHOICE. And I did not like it one bit.
Because if that first choice were to suddenly become free and available and wanting them, theyd want to be with them, not with me.
Its heartbreaking. Its awful.
So when Andou was begging her to be with him, part of it just didnt make sense.
I mean I see how he wanted her so badly. But wouldnt it hurt him to know that he was chosen by a girl who gave up on her first love and fell into his arms because those were the next ones available?
DARN ANDOU! Dont be controlled by a freaking girl like that!
Some girls really take advantage of that (guys too of course). Its horrible.
So honestly. HONESTLY. If I were Andou, I wouldnt want to offer Ninako to give up on Ren and go to him instead.
I would want to try and make her fall in love with me so that I become her first choice.
But I wouldnt try to pull her out of her decision. Because real genuine I-choose-you-first love should come most naturally and in the most purest form.
Mao is beautiful. Shes pretty. She looks so pretty.
However . . . . . . . . . . . . however . . . . . . . . . . . . I just . . . cant forgive her for cheating on Andou.
I feel that I can understand Andous pain. And that I know what it is like to be used.
It is heartbreaking. You know--being with your second choice, but still wanting your first.
I like Ninako because she KNEW not to choose Andou while she still liked Ren.
Mao....Mao chose differently.
The lesson learned from her: You can fall in love with someone as youre dating them, is true. IS VERY VERY TRUE.
I mean think about adults and their meeting a soul mate online and go on a date with them--or a blind date or a . . . I dont know. It happens. Not all relationships have love first and then relationships.
Some relationships have lust first and then love.
Or like first and then love.
Or arranged-marriage trapped feeling first and then gradual love--like in Stepping On Roses.
(*sigh) Lots of emotion in this book. It is heartbeating and made me kick my feet and squirm A LOT.
Love isnt easy. Love sucks a lot actually!
For Ren, hes surrounded by girls who claim to love him but they really dont.
For Ninako, she is in love with a guy and it wont go away at her will.
For Andou, he keeps being stuck in second and that just really sucks.
For Mao, YOU KNOW WHAT SHE PROBABLY DESERVED WHAT SHE GOT.
Even for Sayuri and Daiki their relationship was filled with drama.
Love is NEVER A PEACEFUL THING. Its like a never ending ocean that doesnt sit still.
Waves move because the earth doesnt stop spinning. Love doesnt stop spinning no matter how many times a person tries to stop it. It just doesnt go away.
All of these freaking characters know that, what with their drama.
SO 5 STARS. THIS. GAVE ME EMOTIONS.
If you let yourself get spoiled you better go freaking read the whole thing anyway! I CANT BELIEVE YOU SPOILED YOURSELF!!!!!
