Strobe Edge Special Chapter (Curtain Call Chapter)

Yes. The special curtain call chapter of Strobe Edge. T _ T ...
I apologise for taking so long. Firstly, I was blinded by the electric currents Ren sent out. Also, I couldn't help but hyperventilate seeing their kissing scenes... *_* In addition, there were these fainting spells brought on by seeing Ren looking so intently and holding Ninako's hands to his heart... It is a miracle I could get this out!
Nevertheless, it is with such mixed feelings that I write this summary. I love every minute of it, yet I can't help but feel unbearably sad... this is my last entry for Strobe Edge. T _ T

Thank you Sensei for putting up a drawing of Ren with glasses! I love him with glasses. *faint*

The chapter opens with Ninako calling Ren. She thinks to herself that she has no special reason to call him. She just wants to listen to his voice...

Ren picks up the call: " Yes."

Ninako:"Good evening."
Ren:"Good evening."

(Kyaaaa! Ren in glasses again!!! *double faint*) Ninako asks Ren what he is doing currently. Ren replies he is studying Maths. Ninako is surprised to hear that. She wonders why he is studying Maths as the test just ended today. Ren explains that he is studying Maths because he likes Maths. (Ninako is so cute, she blushes when Ren mentions the word 'like'.)

Ren asks Ninako the reasons for her to call him. As she listens to Ren's voice, she is thinking about how great it is to be Ren's girlfriend. Ninako bids Ren goodbye and Ren wishes Ninako a good night's rest. After they hang up, Ninako stares at her handphone and thinks about Ren's voice over the phone and that she likes it... (she is so smitten... *__* me too...)

As Ninako continues to think about Ren and his voice, her handphone goes off. Ren is calling her.

Ren:"This Saturday..."

The scene switches to the next day in school. Ninako's friends are very excited to learn about Ninako going out on her first date with Ren on Saturday. They will be visiting one of the Kamakura temples. Ninako confesses that she is rather nervous about the date. (In about Chapter 30, Ninako and Ren went on a school trip together and Ninako mentioned that she wished to visit the temple and Ren mentioned they could come back again and all blushed. The mangaka is fulfilling all of Ninako's wishes ^^)
One of her friends commented that they are going out on a date so immediately after test period. Ninako blushes furiously upon hearing that.

Her friends teasingly wonder whether Ren will be kissing Ninako... Ninako is surprised to hear that suggestion.

Her friends in their excitement comment loudly: "Isn't it cool to have Ren as your kissing partner!?... Kyaaa!" (I totally agree! *_*)

As they are discussing, Ninako quietly disappear from the group. They were talking about the knowledge of kissing and Andou overheard the conversation. (Andou's expression...)

Ninako, hiding in a corner (^^ so funny, hiding beside a vending machine), cries when she thinks about her first kiss... It has already being taken away by Andou! She wonders whether she should tell Ren about it as this happened before Ren and her beccame a couple. She thinks it may be good not to say but she doesn't want to see herself coming up with stories to keep this secret.

As she was troubling over this... a hand reaches out to tap her shoulder...

She turns around and comes face to face with Andou...

Meanwhile, the friends wonder out loud where Ninako has gone to. Ren overhears the conversation and begins to scan the surrounding for Ninako. He sees Ninako outside through the door.

Andou tells Ninako she shouldn't be too tormented thinking about that incident. That is like an accident. Thus as for that kiss with him, she should consider it like her first kiss has not been taken away. Thinking to himself, Andou feels he really didn't do anything. (^^ Andou is a different category compared to Ninako)


Both Ninako and Andou are shocked to see Ren.

Ren:""What did you just say..." (Oh dear me! He looked seriously upset!)

Andou:"For your information, I did it against her will."

Ren:"What do you mean?"

Andou:"This is before both of you became a couple."

Andou:"...so that is not a reason for you to break up." (Ninako looks really worried)

Ren:"That is right."

Andou to Ren:"A man who has no room in him should loose his love, right?" (or A man who is not broad-minded should loose his love)

Andou turns around and pats Ninako's head and assures her that things went pretty well.

Ren, upset seeing Andou being so familiar with Ninako, elbows him at the back and tells him off.

Ren tells Ninako that her friends are looking for her. He then pulls Andou by the ear and says: "As for this fellow, he will come with me."
Ninako thinks Ren looks like he is troubled and he minds. She thinks again that maybe Ren doesn't mind that much... To Ren, the taking away of the kiss should not be such a big deal...

Next scene switches to Ninako getting ready for the date...

Saturday... the day of their first date... As Ninako walks towards the meeting point, she catches sight of Ren. Ninako thinks to herself that she has seen Ren several times in home clothes but today he looks so good that her heart is palpitating...

Ninako:"Thank you for waiting."

Ren:"Then, let's go."

Ren gives Ninako her ticket. Ninako takes out her purse to reimburse Ren. Ren reminds her that this their first date and that he will pay as he is a man.

Ninako commenting that there are many people around. Ren holds her hand and tells her to not to get lost.

Ninako is very affected when Ren holds her hand. ^^ Suddenly, Ninako sees a couple walking past them. The girl has her head on the boy's shoulder. She thinks she will try that on Ren and see how he will react... ^^

Gingerly, she places her head on Ren's side. Ren thinks she is tired and suggests that they find a place to rest. Ninako thinks:"Mission failed." She is embarrassed.

Next scene is them at the dessert shop.

Ninako:"This is delicious!"

Ren:"My cake is nice too."

Ren looks at Ninako shyly:"Half-half, right?" (Oh mine! *faints*)

Ninako looking like she is in cloud 9:"Right!" (She's thinking that her love for Ren will grow too big)

Ninako:"This is enjoyable." (while enjoying herself, Ninako cannot help but wish that the day will not come to an end)

Ren:"Yes, this is enjoyable."

She observes and is pleased that Ren is enjoying himself. She thinks she is satisfied even if this love they have, there's a difference in size. (I think this could mean that even if she likes Ren more than he he likes her)

Ren steals a glance at his watch.

Ninako observes that for some reason, Ren has been looking at his watch. She thinks it is still early.

Ren talks about the route to take to go home. "We will take the Eno train and get out at Enoshima..."

Ninako thinks that even though she doesn't want to talk about going home, they have to. Suddenly, Ninako realises...

... that they have arrived at the train station. Ren tells her that he will purchase the tickets to go home while she waits for him here.

Ninako realises that Ren is talking about going home now. She doesn't want to go home.

Ninako:"I don't want to board the train..."

Ren was surprised:"Why?"

Ninako remembers Ren checking the time consistently...

Ninako:"Sorry, let's get on the train."

Ren observes Ninako's expression...

He grabs her hand and walks away from the station. Ninako looks at Ren and wonders whether he is angry...

Ren looks around and asks her where else she wants to go. He asks her whether she wants to check the guide map to see where she wants to visit.

Ninako squeezes Ren's hand...

Ninako: "I don't have to go anywhere. I'm just happy to walk with you."

Ninako:"Sorry... Only I like today." She apologises for being willful.

Ren sighs... He suggests that they sit down for awhile.

Still holding Ninako's hand, Ren apologises to Ninako.

He explains that his intention for them to go back early is for them to see the sun set at Enoshima.

Ren covers his face in his hand and says:"A man has no space in him because he is full." (I suppose this points to what Andou said earlier and Ren is saying that he has no space in him because he is full of his love for Ninako)

Ren looks at Ninako and continues:"You see... It is not true that you are the only want who likes today." He brings her hand to his heart. Ninako can feel his heart palpitating.

Ren:"Do you understand?"

Ren:"When I'm with you, I'm immensely happy but why at the same time, I become without space in me (I'm not broad-minded or better word possessive?)."

Ren: "I don't seem to be myself."

Ren thinks he desperately need to change this part of him. Ninako quickly resplies that he doesn't need to.

Ren looks at Ninako and tells her that actually, he was quite affected by Andou's kiss incident.

Bringing Ninako's hand to his lips, Ren tells her that he feels terribly sick and upset.
Ninako blushes.

With her hand to his mouth, Ren looks at her intensely and said:"I loathe anyone other than I touching you."

"Do I look bad now?" (No.... Nope... Not at all, in fact you look really HOT now!!!)

Ren leans forward. Ninako's eyes widen and all she could think is:"Wa... Waa... Waaaa..."

She wonders whether it is better to close her eyes.... She wonders about her breathing...

She puckers up her lips, (Bawahahaha... she looks so cute!!)

Ren leans closer and with half close eyes: "I like."

He looks intensely at Ninako and asks her:"Do you like?"


They lean ever so close... he places his fingers gently on her chin...

They kiss (Kyaaaaaa!!!!*faints* *blinded*)

Ren with his lips close to Ninako's asks:"Do you still think you alone?"

Ninako:"No, I don't."

She tries to explain herself:"but I think that certainly sometime I would feel lonely by myself. When that happens, again..."

blushing and looking at Ren look, Ninako says:"...again.... please" ^^ She is asking to be kissed or the whole works again? ^^Ninako is so honest with her love for Ren. ^^ Ren is enraptured! With that kind of look she gives him, he's speechless.

Ninako hugs Ren and looks contented and blissful. Ren thinks to himself that he is treading on dangerous grounds, he feels totally defenseless when it comes to Ninako. ^^

At the station, Ren suggests that they will visit the temple during Hatsumoude so that they can see the first sun rise at Enoshima.

Ninako smiles and agrees.

Suddenly, a gust of wind blows through them. Ren thinks to himself about the scent in the air. At the same time, Ninako articulates:" The scent of summer's night."

Ren turns around and looks at her. He smiles at her. Ninako wonders why he is smiling at her...

(Yes, they are soul mates... so similar in so many ways)

That ends the special chapter. I'm so in love with the 2 of them. Gosh...


  1. Ren is sooo cute. I love him. I'm happy for the two love birds. It's sad to say goodbye, but happy ending.

  2. Reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!! <33 aww the first date was very very romantic!! I'm very sad because is the end but I'm very happy for them :3, I hope they are happy together forever <33 hopefully some group is encouraged to translate the novel! :D is my favourite manga <3 in fact, my priority is coloring the manga xD thank u so much for all summaries of Strobe Edge <3

  3. AHH! this makes my heart flutter!! Thank you!!!

    Hehe...did anyone catch the beginning with Ninako's cellphone charm? It was the same one that Ren got her in the beginning of the series. So cute that Sensei remembers.

  4. The mangaka made all Ninako's wish come true on her first date! I guess it's the sweetest first date ever!

  5. Lovely Color Spread Cover...
    I'm deeply sad that this is the "final curtain call" for Strobe Edge...Even though Andou was my favorite charrie *yes he was* I'm really happy Ren & Ninako ended up together... I LOVE how Ren put Ninako's hand by his heart *every girl's fantasy*. I'm still totally speechless that it ended. I also knew that the "smell the same air thing" was going to appear in the final chapter. That is the symbol of how they belong together & are meant to be. Strobe Edge will always remain in my heart *tears*. Thank you Ankemaybe's for creating this blog. Also for posting the raws & telling us about each page. Thanks Ankemaybe~

    "Farewell Strobe Edge, I will miss you".

  6. OMG! Thank you!! That was a very cute chapter! I wish for more T^T

    Thanks for translating!!

  7. Thankyou Thankyou!! Love them together, so sad it's the end! I was wondering if you could upload the chapter as a single file? The lovey dovey scenes make my heart flutter.

  8. Thank you so much. I love this manga and your blog.
    In this chapter, there are so many lovey-dovey moments like after-kissing-conversation.

    Ren asked "Do you still think you alone?"
    Ninako answer
    "No, I don't"
    "but I think that certainly sometime I would felt lonely by myself. When that happens, again..."
    and continued with her blushing face.
    "again please....."

    ninako so cute and lovely. So do Ren.
    what's the meaning of 'again please'? kissing??? or something???
    why does Ren's face turn so red??

    at first this chapter, Ninako wished Ren to love her as much as she loved him somedays. but I think she doesn't have to worry about that.
    he already does or even more. he only know they feel something at the same time, for example season's scent.
    he is just not very good at expressing his emothions. and I'm sure he will change with ninako.
    I guess they are happily ever after.

  9. oh my, absolutely fantastic!! I loooved the whole chapter, particularly the fact that you can sense extremely clear Ren's love for Ninako!

  10. AHHHHH~~~~~~!!!! FINALLY! IT ENDS~~~~!!!T.T.T.T.T MY GAWD! I HAD BEEN WAITING THE ENDINGS SINCE LAST YEAR~~~!T.T.T.T i am truly a fan of STROBE EDGE....... kyaaaa~~~!!!XDXDXD REN X NINAKO~~~!!<3<3<3 I LOVE THEM VERY MUCH~!XDXDXD thank you very much for the lovely chapter~XD it is a memorable......T.T

  11. 腐女子: So true. Ninako's wishes have all been fulfilled. Ren is such a romantic. I like that he had planned to see the sunset with her...

    Aria: *wave* miss u. Have not heard from u for quite awhile. One of the sad points of Strobe Edge is the lack of explanation for Andou. Maybe there will be a special chapter on that some time later or even a spin-off? Thank you for following my blog.^^

    bebetsy: wow colouring the manga. hope to see your work floating around! ^^

    Anonymous: Thank you for your correction. It makes the kissing scene more cute with your explanation. Mata = "again" and "onegaishimasu" is "please". I'm learning again. Thanks alot.

    zaozakikaeaki: ^^ it is worth the wait, isn't it? You r welcome. ^^

  12. Yuka: I totally agree. Ninako was thinking that she may love Ren more than he loves her in the beginning of the chapter. But after the kissing scene. She should be very clear that he loves her very much too.

  13. I was silently browsing the post since there are people behind me and I was screaming in my head while reading the summary and looking at the images. It felt like there are butterflies in my stomach. XD

    Finale chapter, it is. The author did full blast in doing this. ^^ Though, I was kinda hoping these scenes were done during the previous chapters. (Ehm, I'm still blushing right now).

    Thank you, Ankemaybe, for posting this. ^^

    *Crossing Fingers* I hope there'll be "Strobe Edge Special 1", "Strobe Edge Special 2", "Strobe Edge Special 3" ... in the near future... he he he he...

  14. itthy: You r welcome! ^^ Yes! I hope there'll be Strobe Edge Special 1 , 2,3 and more!

  15. hello again ankemaybe:) yey! it's the last chapter. can't ask for a better ending. Ninako sure is lucky to have her feelings of "crush" returned and at the same time Ren is lucky too to find a girl that can make him feel different kinds of emotions (before: he's stoic). awwww, too bad... hope there are other arches for the other strobe edge characters.

  16. Hi Tykie. ^^/
    Agree this is a great ending for both of them!

  17. OMG!! *_____* I love it so much the fact that Ninako is the only girl in front of who Ren is capable of displaying all of his HOTTEST facial expressions :P. In fact, SHE makes him hot xD

    I have two favourite moments in this chapter:
    - first one is when Ren holds Ninako's hand to his mouth and says those killer words xD (I swear, I love this scene even more than the kisses!!!! I can die from Ren's intense gaze at any time any place xDDD)
    - second one, this time with Ren as the victim :P, when he gets struck by Ninako's dangerously cute expression and request xDD (I can't believe she had the nerve to ask him that!! She's sooo damn cute!! And sooo funny the expressions that Ren has on his face when she suddenly hugs him xD)

    This is the best ending chapter I could have imagined!!!
    Even though this is the end for Strobe Edge, Ninaren will remain in my heart forever <3
    Thank you Ankemaybe for bearing with my fangirl paranoia during all this time :PP

    PS: I love Ren with glasses too!!! <3

  18. Freesiane: I totally agree. Ninako is made for Ren. She is the only one who can make him blush.

    Yes the words he said and the expressions he had when he said those words were unforgettable. Gosh, the chemistry between them sets fire to the pages of the book!!!! Ninaren is definitely my favorite couple too!

    On the contrary, I enjoyed your fangirling! So happy to meet a fan of Strobe Edge to share my love for this manga! That's the main reason I created this blog!

    I can't wait for Sakisaka's new works. I have such great expectations of her now!

  19. thanks so much for updating this manga each time a new issue was released. im so saad its over but it was a beautiful ending. i just love the two of them.

  20. Anonymous: You r welcome. It has been a pleasure to share Strobe Edge with fans!

  21. Goodness! That was amazing. I'll miss their sweet, pure feelings that I won't find in other mangas. I'm so happy that they can be so honest with each other and you're right they act and think alike. Thank you so much Ankemaybe for translating until then end for us. It's not that hard waiting for scanlations to finish now.

  22. Anonymous: It has been a pleasure to share my fav manga with like-minded people! ^^

  23. Thank goodness everything in the love triangle was resolved in a friendly way, and that Andou wasn't fobbed off onto Mao or some other girl. (I find that to be SO cheap when mangakas do that.) The date was sweet. It was a nice ending for the manga. But I wonder, will the final volume of the manga include this chapter, or will it be published in an extra volume (which would then necessitate even more extra chapters...!)

  24. I can't believe it's over now :cries: Although, I can say now that I'm quite satisfied now ^-^ This chappter was so cute and romantic! I found it 'cute' that Ren got upset when he found out that Andou kissed Ninako~chan. I thought that Andou was considerate to Ninako about not to worry about that incident. It doesn't count since she doesn't love him. Hilarious when Ren pulled Andou's ear.......lol I loved the whole date of theirs! I'm going to miss reading SE! Yes, I hope so too that someone would translate the novel ^^ NinaRen are soul mates forever! Thank you ankemaybe-san for translating and creating this great blog :bows to you:

  25. I really liked the special chapter of Strobe Edge! Thanks for posting Ankemaybe!

    Ahm...Sakisaka-sensei will make a novel? Sorry for my ignorance, but what would be a novel? It would just be a story or would also have pictures like the manga?

    Thank you again Ankemaybe! I'm anxious to get the new volume of Strobe Edge!

  26. im soooooooooooo glad to see this thank you soo much T___T!!! really u' make my dream come true <3!!!! i'm mexican so the translation is very hard to find T__T thank youuuuuuuuu!!!!

  27. Anonymous: The novel will be a written form of the manga. Words will be used to describe what u have seen in the manga. ^ ^

    pawwii: Glad u enjoy this.

  28. I get all emotional when I think that this series is finally over... This manga definitely has a different feeling compared to others. I fell in love with Strobe Edge in the first place because I felt like I could really feel everyone's feelings and I felt like I could really connect to Ninako (although she actually got her guy in the end :P) it's been a great journey - thanks for the summaries!

  29. OMG.. REN IS WAY TOO CUUTE *___* I agree, hes does not look bad IN ANY WAY.. He looks so damn hot <3 thanks for summary, and for the pictures! Sad that this is the end of strobe egde.. hope the authour will do more storys like this.. now we just need Viz media to license this manga in english, so i can buuuy it!

  30. Anonymous: Thank you (both of you) for your comments! You r welcome. I've enjoyed summarizing and sharing this with everyone. Yes! Hopefully, you'll get to buy this manga and reread it again and again! ^^

  31. goodness!im in love with ren!!thanks u so much for doing strobe edge and yep, we all have the same reactions ( gyaa moments) in the scene..im just melting..it's sad that this came to an end..but it is so nice for the mangaka since she did an extra chapter and the ending for this series is very satisfying..thank u so much..

  32. ayumi23: I'm in love with Ren too! ^^ U r welcome!

  35. That was tooooooo cute. I'm about to mourn for the tenderness!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1>.< hahaha I'm too blushed right now

  36. hi i stumbled on your blog because i was looking for the remaining chapters of strobe edge i was only up to chapter 22.

    and i'm a new manga lover..i've been devouring mostly shoujos though....

    do you have any good recommendations? something along the line of strobe edge...

  37. I love Koukou debut! Lovely story. Those that are listed in my favourite mangas list are my recommendations. You can find them on the right-hand side. Welcome to the world of mangas.

  38. I love your summary!! Thanks for providing the ending and the special chapter!!

  40. I cried....! T.T why does this have to end? nooooooooooooooooo

  41. Because of the updates given on Strobe Edge in various manga sites, I read your summaries of Strobe Edge again. I don't know how many times I've visited your page already just to read Strobe Edge. But I can't get over Ninako's and Ren's intense feelings for each other. A cool and usually almost apathetic guy who can blush and smile and laugh in front of the girl he loves is so MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Hehehe!

  42. I forgot to add this... but thank you so much, Anke for the summaries! I don't like that it ended because I wish to know how they develop individually now that they're a couple and I do want to see them get married and have little Ren and little Ninako running around (*faints*), but Sakisaka-Sensei ended the manga in a way that is truly unforgettable. Again, thank you so much!

  43. OMG!!! i almost died when i read this i was rooting for her since day one. ugh she is just so cute. lol and ren is HOT!!! lol in a way she reminds me of myself. im so shy around the boys i like and i get mad at myself for it. i wish i were more like her :fighting spirit:. lol i have my own ren to worry about now lol. well im glad they finally ended up together but i do feel bad for Aidou i think i spelled it wrong. :( ahhh but yes thank you Sakisaka-Sensei for ending the manga on such a beautiful and magnificent note. :) Thank you so much for all your hard work.

  44. Ren is such a FREAKEN sexy lover!! KYA~~~~
    Marry me Ren!!!! xDDD

  45. gahh! i love this ending:] thanks for translating and posting it up!

  46. i love the ending! you should do one on Maid sama! it seems like your kinda of read! i love how cute maid sama is!

  47. Omg,such a cute chapter!
    Thank you for translating!

  48. OMG it's such a cute ending!!:^0^

  49. aw so cute!!! I'm in love i'm in 9th cloud wohooo.... :D

  50. Thank you very much for your summaries on Strobe Edge. I just discovered this manga a few days ago and it was such a pleasure to read. Ren and Ninako are absolutely wonderful together.

    Regarding this chapter, I commend the mangaka for the excellent job she has done with Ren and Ninako's first date. The romantic scenes were *very* tastefully done. I thought she flawlessly brought across the tenderness between these two combined with their passion. These scenes have definitely been the best that I have seen illustrated in any manga thus far and I think I've read some good ones.

    Anyway, I really hope that this series become licensed in America. It would be nice to own it.

  51. i feel like im melted ... >< ... love nina ren..... <3 <3 especially when theyre kissing ahahah XD

  52. Kya! I love your small comments. I so agree with them. Thanks for posting this, I love you! Ren is so sexy with glasses *faints*

  53. thank you so much for posting this~
    I really love how the author keep Ren for being handsome all the time, in every angle, in every emotion, same goes with Ninako, she's just so cute! this is the best! I love Strobe Edge!♥
    By the way, words can't describe how hansome & sexy-looking Ren was!
    I soO Love Ankemaybe! thank you so much for sharing, same goes for the effort! :) ♥

  54. Kyaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!! ^-^ So cute!! They FINALLY kiss :DDDDDDDD and OMFG REN IS SO FREAKIN HOT -being total fangirl-

  55. By the way, I forgot to tell you that your comments kept making me laugh and I agree with all of them. :D

  56. I was wondering if you were going to post and translate the bonus chapter about Manabu at all?

    As for this chapter, I have come to this page so many times to re-read it in the past few months. Everything leading up to, and including, the kiss was pure win! And Andou taking responsibility for his kiss, and trying to make Ninako feel better about it, was so sweet!
    Ren was just too cute in this. I love how he made all of Ninako's wishes come true. What a way to have a first date!!!! I want Ren for my boyfriend!!! XD lol
    Thank you so much for posting this! You have my greatest thanks!!! :-)

  57. I'm so happy to see Strobe Edge receiving all the love! ^^ Do remember to get the manga series when it is translated in your country.

    I will not be posting the bonus chapter about Manabu as I don't have the raws. I believe it was published in one of the special edition of Betsuma magazine and I did not purchase that.

  58. i must say am glad andou got something from the person that he loved u know a mean ren ended up getting the girl anyway so i think is only fair plus am sure ninako is a virgin so yeah ren definatly scored big time he he

    even though I'm on Andou's side (as fangurl n such) I was totally- OMG need to breath in X///////X this was soooo cute, I was biting my lip cuz if I didn't I'd have screamed!
    damn .. wished it would have been Andou though... god I'm gonna dream of this =///=
