Strobe Edge is every friend-zoned girl’s ultimate dream come true. By that, I mean the plot. Story-wise, characterization-wise and chemistry-wise the movie was okay. Better than Ao Haru ride if you’ll ask me.
Overall, the movie was nicely done. And I’m not talking about the production only but the characters as well. I don’t know if it’s really the intention of the show but I haven’t noticed any major conflict. There were no evil plans or b*tchy ex-girlfriends or selfish second leads. The only thing that hinders the relationship between the OTP is, in fact, the main leads themselves. Their sense of loyalty and sympathy towards the people around them was just too great that they were willing to sacrifice their own happiness. Well, in the end, the supporting leads willingly gave way. The problem is solved and they live happily ever after.
I love the first part of the movie where Ninako smiles charmingly at Ren and he smiles inquisitively back at her. I find it way too cute. 🙂
