“Won’t you become my girlfriend?”
On the day of her high school entrance ceremony, Ao got asked that by Riku, a guy that she has only just met. But by that, he meant to ask her to become his fake girlfriend, just to pretend. Ao was surprised by the sudden request, but after knowing Riku’s true feeling, she decided to agree to become his fake girlfriend…?
Koishi Tagari no Blue can’t be in the A-List of extremely cute character sketches, but the story is really nice. It is heart wrenching & very emotional… since it’s about first love and the heartbreak that it goes hand & hand with.
The web of emotions weaved by the main characters got me hooked, since the moment Hariya Riku asked the girl he just met to be his girlfriend. Mizushima Ao, the main girl of the story, surprisingly knows the rules of love and dating, even though she just plays the role of the “fill-in girlfriend”. She conned Riku’s first love well enough to bring out her almost hopeless love for Riku.
Be prepared to be heartbroken with Ao, Riku, Kiyono and Kai, because love can be totally inhumane.
