• Minami Hamabe as Akari Yamamoto, a girl who befriends the shy Yuna. She initially pushes Yuna to Inui, the latter’s childhood friend, but eventually she herself falls for Inui.
• Riko Fukumoto as Yuna Ichihara, a shy girl who loves reading shoujo manga but hasn’t experienced love yet. She falls in love with Rio, Akari’s step-brother.
• Takumi Kitamura as Rio Yamamoto, Akari’s step-brother. Before his father married her mother, he was in love with her but had to suppress his feelings once they became step-siblings. Eventually he falls for Yuna but is hesitant to confess.
It was first announced that the manga will be getting its last chapter on May 13. In commemoration of the manga’s last run, Bessatsu Margaret magazine will feature Omoi, Omoware, Furi, Furare as its cover. Furthermore, the last chapter will be 46 pages long and will feature a colored opening page.
Omoi, Omoware, Furi, Furare is Io Sakisaka’s latest work, which was first published in 2015. Sakisaka’s other works include Ao Haru Ride and Strobe Edge. Anime News Network describes the series’ plot as such:
The story focuses on two girls whose stances on love are polar opposites. Yuna wants a love that’s like a dream. Akari thinks she can become better at love and is very realistic in her approach. The two heroines’ stories unfold beside two male main characters. Kazuomi doesn’t understand love. He asks, “What’s that, something tasty?” On the other hand, Rio won’t reject anyone who comes his way, as long as that person is cute.
