YMMV / Strobe Edge

  • Base-Breaking Character: Ninako. Is she a sympathetic protagonist who readers can relate to as she goes through her first steps in realizing love, a meddlesome girl who is getting in the way of the male lead's relationship with another girl, or both?
  • Fan-Preferred Couple: Ninako/Andou, and Mayuka/Ren.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Ninako's favorite band is Ikimonogakari. Ikimonogakari ended up performing the theme song for the movie adaptation of Ao Haru Ride, Io Sakisaka's succeeding work.
  • Woolseyism: The English translation by Viz Media has some creative alternatives to some of the translations. For example, in vol. 7, Ninako makes an Incredibly Lame Pun to an otherwise harmless-looking chihuahua by saying, "Konnichihuahua!", which combines "konnichiwa" (hello) and "chihuahua." It doesn't translate well literally, but the English translation has a great alternative — the pun is changed into, "Hound do you do!"
