Chapter 136...

Spoiler:


I personally think Aya is very dishonest with herself. She might be able to decieve everyone, but is it worth being so miserable? *SIGH*

Can someone answer me the question of why Kitaooji likes Manaka? I am at chapter 91, but the only thing I can come up with is that he doesn't pay enough attention to her and that makes her compete for his affection.

She likes him because he makes her happy? Besides, they both enjoy each others' presence...until Satsuki began her body-attack, of course. ^_^;;

Both of them shares the same interests in shows and such things as I recall. They spent a lot of time together back when Manaka broke his finger. And she feels happy and natural when she's with Manaka.

Bsides, is there really an explaination for the Manaka 'charm'.

I thought that Manaka was sprewing charm when he asked that first girl out. I think that every girl likes him for different reasons, but I still think that Kitaooji is a bit too extreme in her feelings. They are sort of out of proportion with what has happened between them and that he has admitted to her that he has three girls on his mind. But, this may be explained by her determination to get what she wants.

Actually, to really understand a series, I have to go to topics like this and re-read some of the chapters. I like the series, and think it is not so extreme as other love/comedies. I would say the most distracting component for me in this manga is that well, the names, and secondary female characters that well, do impact Manaka's relationship with the main three girls he likes, but aren't so great in and of themselves.

I would say there's only two serious contenders for Manaka's heart -> Tsukasa and Aya. Almost every Tsukasa-Manaka date/event/moment together has brought them closer together since their break-up. Personally, I like Tsukasa as she's honest and direct, though much less agressive than Kitaooji.

As for Aya, she is the one who started out with Manaka on his grand dream to become a film maker. She's definitely someone special to him. The trend probably states that Aya would be the girl that hooks up with Manaka, but I guess the mangaka is milking it for all its worth now...

Aya is almost Miss Perfect in the stereotypical Japanese otaku sense. She's not very good at being honest emotionally, but I think that's part of that stereotype too...

The rest of the girls, I don't think they have a chance really if you go by this using logic . Perhaps if we see a change in Kitaooji's behavior - she was just too agressive and was much more likeable before declaring her undying affection for Manaka.

As for Manaka himself, I agree he's nothing special - except somehow, he manages to charm most of the pretty girls in his life. But then again, that's another cliche of the harem genre I guess.

i hope the mangaka releases 2 alternate endings so she can milk the series for all its worth and everyone can be happy.

But Im really only saying this cos i want him to end up with tsukasa but no matter how you look at it it will be aya. ..

ichigo started out as one of my recent favorite manga... but it's like chapter 136 already... and the story still drags on and on and on.... god damn it, he is about to grad from high school and he still hasnt the courage to kiss the girls he like....
and everytime a girl confess or some dramatic thing happen, the author just make it sounds like a joke in the next chapter and things just continue on as if nothing happened.......
it about time manaka make some dramatic moves instead of his usual stupid stunned-horny-smile reaction...

Chapter 137 >>

Spoiler:


Personally, I find Manaka's high level of discomfort around Tsukasa to be contradictory when they were so comfortable together on their date earlier in the previous chapters..

For english, Yanime + whichever group has only released up to chapt 92. For anything later than that you will either have to know Japanese, Chinese or Korean.

Of course not. I'm just the only member on the team right now done with classes for the semester. Don't worry, SR is coming along and you'll see a new release soon.

That's because we haven't put it on the site yet. You can get chapter 92 from our IRC channel at #yanime on irc.irchighway.net. If you can't get on IRC, you'll just have to wait until we put it on the site.
