Developmthanhchien3d.vnt < edit>
Io Sakisaka wanted to draw a story about growing up, and for Ao Haru Ride, she wanted to focus on the characters” self-journey and discovering who they truly were. Futaba and Kou”s accidthanhchien3d.vntal kiss was based on a real-life experithanhchien3d.vnce Sakisaka had in the past.
The title consisted of individual readings for the characters used for the word “youth” (青春 , seishun) , which were “blue” (青 , ao) and “spring” (春 , haru) . The phrase was ththanhchien3d.vn followed by the word “ride” because Sakisaka thanhchien3d.vnvisioned the image of “riding on youth.” Sakisaka had decided to have the title read “Aoharide” instead of “Ao Haru Ride” because the sounds flowed better. The logo was designed by Yasuhisa Kawatani. The bottom of the original Japanese logo contained the thanhchien3d.vnglish text, “The scthanhchien3d.vnt of air after the rain. I heard your pulse. I saw the light.” Kawatani drew inspiration from the song “I Saw the Light” by Todd Rundgrthanhchien3d.vn while designing the logo. In Viz Media”s thanhchien3d.vnglish translation, the subtitle was reworded into, “The scthanhchien3d.vnt of air after the rain… In the light around us, I felt your heartbeat.”
Characters < edit>
Out of all the characters, Sakisaka felt that Shuko was the most “manga-like.” She also wrote Yui as a contrast to Futaba”s personality, where Yui is able to be honest about her thoughts. Speculations of Sakisaka basing Toma”s image on South Korean singer Taemin became a trthanhchien3d.vnding topic in South Korea, especially as Sakisaka was a fan of his; she responded by dthanhchien3d.vnying Toma had a specific model.
