In addition to this news, the OVA that will be bundled with the 12th volume of the manga (In December) will feature the fireworks festival chapter. Among the characters is Toma Kikuchi, a major character who only appeared at the very end of the anime.
I´m happy. I´m happy knowing that Ao Haru Ride won´t drag itself on any longer than it´s already doing. I like the manga but, God damn, how cliché and melodramatic can you get?
I doubt that this news will increase any chances of getting a second anime season, still. I´m a bit bitter that I´ll never see number one bae Toma animated outside of the OVA .
Eh. Just another shoujo manga coming to an end.
