This is a friendly reminder that the cbox is open for fans to share updates, fanwork and (level-headed) meta/commentary. It is in no way a place for character/manga bashing, so you’ll have to refrain from that here. Please don’t flood the cbox with repetitiveness and negativity.

Thank you.

The official Twitter account for the Ao Haru Ride anime has posted up images of the extras that came with the first pressing of Ao Haru Ride Blu-ray/DVD vol. 1. Of these posts, some of the tweets were about “Awaken”, the unpublished comic that came with the first press edition of the Blu-ray/DVD vol. 1.

The cover of the comic was posted with the message:

Now, this. Included in the limited first press edition, “Awaken”, a never-before-seen comic drawn by Sakisaka-sensei. It’s a story that seems to answer the quote on the cover, “What kind of expression is Tanaka-kun making right now?” #aoha_anime

The first page was posted with the message:

Here I’ll show you something special! It’s the cops and robbers scene appearing from the original comic’s “Unwritten” episode. What did Kou feel during that time, and what kinds of emotions was he holding? When we read Kou’s monologue, I felt a fresh, deep emotion again. #aoha_anime

The text is a little cut off, but what I can tell you is the dialogue says this:

I meant to save you, though…”

The second page that the official Twitter account posted is accompanied with the message:

A glimpse at just one more page. Even though no one notices, Kou noticed it. Look forward to reading what exactly he’s noticing. #aoha_anime

The translation for the page reads:

Kou (narration): Why…?
Kou (narration): Why did…
Kou (narration): … no one notice?

I’m so tempted to buy it now but I’m still contemplating against what a waste it would be to spend $50-60 on a disc with just two episodes.

Kou mentioned he had a part-time job in chapter 12/episode 10. He’s never mentioned what it was, so a curious fan took to Twitter and asked.

I’ve been wondering about this for a long time, but what does Kou do at his part-time job? I’m very interested, so I want you to tell me!

Io Sakisaka responded:

He’s a pizza delivery man!

Fanart of Kou as a pizza delivery man, yes/yes? I know that some of you will agree with me that he probably looks good in the uniform.
