Comments: This is also a pure love offering. Everyone and everything is wholesome through and through. People break hearts (temporarily, of course) altruistically. These things boil down to whether or not you like the actors, believe they have chemistry, and think they pull it off. I'm only slightly embarrassed to say: check, check, and check.

It might be that Strobe Edge benefitted from Hiroki Halo effect, but I also started watching his Crying 100 Times - Every Raindrop Falls and bailed after 30 minutes or so.

Summary: 15-year-old Ninako Kinoshita has never been in love until an encounter on the train with her school's most popular boy, the quiet Ren Ichinose. As she grows closer to Ren, she falls in love with him, but must learn to cope with the unfortunate fact that Ren already has a longtime girlfriend.
