From Del Rey:
Yamato is ready for a fresh start. So when his aunt invites him to stay rent-free in her big-city boarding house in hustling, bustling Tokyo, Yamato jumps at the chance. There's just one teensy-weensy catch: It's an all-girl housing complex and spa! Things get even more nerve-racking when Yamato meets his neighbor Suzuka, a beautiful track-and-field star. She's not just the cutest girl Yamato's ever met, she's also the coolest, the smartest, and the most intimidating. Can an ordinary guy like Yamato ever hope to win over a girl like Suzuka?

The End

After finishing the manga, the ending was good. The manga will draw you in and force you to read it from start to finish but I want to add some warnings for those reading this series for the first time... do start reading for anything else other than romance and the drama that goes with it. The manga will lead you to follow Yamato and his track success but do not get your hopes up
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
as he is forced to quit
. Read this for the intentions of romance and drama and you will be happy with it.

i think it's a feminist style of manga and also the romance was kind of lacking some senses that you might think "it is really that what she/he feels?"... the idea of the main female was some kind of a bipolar or something that can't defy her character and the situation.. also i can't really stand the ideas of a main male who was a typical idiot/stupid that always blaming himself, getting the wrong impressions by simply putting wrong acts and ends it with a good conclusion even though it is not thoroughly and clearly explained... But it is overall that it came close to what we see in the real world though for me it is kind of exaggerating the "factors of love"....

I had a question (if you kinda re-direct the story);

What if Suzuka didn't get pregnant, will the story goes on with some marrying stuff, (yamato being a good father, getting a fine job to support the family, etc.) or something that will complicate again the relationship of the two and ending again with break up? How would you end the story?

because in my opinion the idea of "love" in this manga is just so sudden to the point that; when she suddenly breaks up and then restarting the relationship and founding out that she is pregnant and the male becomes so frustrated acting being so responsible and ending up marrying her without thinking because he thought that this is only the way and the typical ending it is HAPPY (although when it comes to romance genre i like nice and a happy one)... well this is only my opinion because i didn't get the idea of being interested with some flashy plots... B)

Considering the fact that most romances suck, this one gets a couple of points as I read all of it.

I'd been searching for a good shounen romance for a long time and the premise of this series caught my eye for years but I'd been told it was a kind of raeg manga. I didn't really find that to be the case, though.
'Haru Yo, Koi!' (though that's seinen) was better with the whole multiple girls coming and going thing (though in this, Suzuka is there almost the whole time).
The epilogue seemed to randomly shove in that

he's an olympic candidate
for a happy ending but it hardly seems believable.

I Really didn't like the main character personality from the first chapter, and don't like tomboy girl like the female lead.
But I considered the good rating of this manga on this site and decided to give it a shut.
I'm in the middle of the 4th chapter and it just keep getting annoying!!! V.ANNOYING!! Actions that doesn't make sense!!
Like in the 4th chapter when the tanned girl take a needle and inject it into the guys NECK just because of a little cold!! I MEAN COME ON!!!!

Stupid manga .. I wouldn't recommend it

Wanna read manga with protagonist so illogically inept you constantly wonder how he manages to breath each day?

Wanna read manga revolving around a romance between people who a genuinely terrible to each other?

Wanna read a manga about people making irrational decisions that can only be explained as the person making them must have some kind of mental disorder?

Wanna read a manga that insults your intelligence at every turn and assumes you have no concept of how humans behave?

Wanna watch two people destroy each other lives over some ridiculously and easily avoidable selfish decision?

Then this is the manga for you!

SUZUKA + ICHIGO 100 = Would be THE Master Piece.

To begin with. I think Honoka Sakurai is a MUCH better example of what a shy girl should be compared to Toujo Aya. (((( SPOILER FOR ICHIGO 100))))
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
The fact the Aya NEVER did anything to have a happy ending with Manaka was for me, the one reason she did not deserve to have it

Sakurai, even as a shy person, fights for herself and her love, very interesting character.

Manaka was gay.... Akitsuki is kinda dumb and inexperienced, but certainly has some attitude. Thus, manaka should be more like Akitsuki in many ways.

Boths mangas had what the other lacked. For instance, in Ichigo 100, the characters would sometimes avoid taking obvious decisions for no reason other than the author wanting to restrain the development of the story. In this one, things would happen. The character wanna kiss, they kiss, they wanna start going out, they do, wanna break up, break up. I mean, they actually acted upon the situation like any of us would and then suffer the consequences, which made sense and gave a feeling of realism to the manga, and because of that, it developed in ways Ichigo 100 failed at.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
the end shows that clearly with the sex and pregnancy experience

I wouldnt say this is a love polygon.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
There are different romance plots going on, as it tells the life of a student, but there isnt much of a competition. The story pretty much has a main romance which it focuses upon.

it felt draggy at times. Sometimes it felt there were too many chapters for too little experience. Ichigo 100 felt like a much longer story even though they had pretty much the same ammount of chapters. The one part this manga excelled at this was at the end hough. I felt the latest chapters brought a LOT of content and meaning to the story. On that matter, ichigo 100 had much more of a Roller Coaster effect than this one. This was much more linear.

Also, something I dont usually see. Others mangas (ichigo 100 por example) only show the drama. Once the issue at hand is solved, it ends leaving the rest to your imagination. In this one, the story extended long enough to give the reader a sense of closure, it gives us a nice prologue and I think thats AWESOME! It sucks when you spend 170 chapters readring waiting to see how happy the couple you are cheering for a gonna end up, and then as soon as they get together the story ends.

I've read a couple of ecchi mangas and they haven't annoyed me as much as this one. I mean, chapter one where the glasses girl falls on him?? IMPOSSIBLE and she just kept sitting there? IMPOSSIBLE. I go search for other manga now *goes to search*

This manga does a great job in emotionally connecting with the readers

for some reason this manga gave me "The Wonder Years" Vibes, the tripes and turbulence of your first love and the sacrifice of one's goal in order to achieve certain more important things in life....

Great manga, One of the best EVER

Title says it all. My all-time favorite. Most intense storyline ever. The romance is just so freaking good, and I'm a guy! In my opinion, I liked Suzuka a lot better than Ichigo 100%. I would love to see more Suzuka but too bad it's over.. I'd just love to see a sequel that shows the rest of their loves together because they're the kind of manga couple that you just want to know what'll happen for the rest of their lives. I wanna see Fuka grow up too! Damn, I'm obsessing over Suzuka.. why did it have to be so good. Truly an amazing manga experience. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes romance. I feel so Suzuka-deprived now that I finished this and its one-shots..

You honestly have no idea how much I LOVE this manga. Seriously, I could not put it down. My #1 favourite romance manga. Kept me guessing right up until the end. I was pretty much with Yamato from beginning to end trying to decipher the mind and actions of Suzuka. I felt every single one of his emotions because around the time of reading I loved a girl who very much reminded me of Suzuka, and I was pretty much Yamato trying to keep up with her. I am very much like Yamato, btw. Suzuka was an unsafe harbor, because usually I have SOME idea what a girls thinking; but not with her. I couldn't tell a damn thing she was thinking or what thoughts were behind her sad face. Little did I know that it was a mask hiding her true feelings! I honestly felt for Yamato so much, because shit she seemed so out of left field. It was exactly the same as with the girl I loved that I couldn't keep up with.

Spoiler (mouse over to view)
Not only were her thoughts vague, but I couldn't even tell if her actions fit the thoughts or when she was fibbing. At times I wondered if they would work out or not. Their was no communication, like the girl and I. I could definitely understand his impulsiveness and frustration when she hid things (shiz, we all have a limit. Imagine being lost in the black tunnel that was Suzuka's mind) Why couldn't women just come out and say things??

God. Her facial expressions. No wonder why he could never give up on her. Her face is burned into my mind and probably his too.You cannot forget people like that. The sheer beauty is outstanding. I couldn't help but gawk at certain panels for ages and ages. Especially that face in chapter 112. Jesus, just like her. How the hell can someone look that GOOD when conveying something so heart wrenching for the both of them? I was clenching my teeth just like Yamato! FFS, where was the logic?? Seo Kouji is a genius at facial expressions. The warmth exuding from those eyes left me stricken.

When Suzuka started revealing the inner workings of her mind I was still a bit lost here and there until I got the whole puzzle sorted. Why can't women just come out and say things?? In Suzuka's case, she was pretty much hiding everything. Never being blunt until Yamato reached the point of no return (cue shit face). When she explained herself, I began to love her character and realized what I could have been doing better with my own unrequited love (though it might not be unrequited). I thought it was a myth but women are truly sensitive animals and are not to be taken for granted.

Also, who else found Honoka annoying? Every chapter featuring her, I wanted to push her out of the panels and tell Yamato to get his head IN THE GAME! We're trying to stubbornly figure out the workings of Suzuka's mind! Not pick up women; there would be plenty of time for that if he failed. Sometimes I was truly worried it wouldn't work out between the two of them. I had to reassure myself that the book was called "Suzuka" and not "Honoka" haha. I also found Yamato's lack of loyalty kind of annoying. He was giving up too soon I felt, but I could sort of understand because he wasn't completely roped in yet. After your roped in, there's no escaping haha.

Lastly because this is getting too long, the feeling of realism during the whole entire series added so well to the story. Her change in lifestyle was a slap out of nowhere and seemed so quick but hey, that's life. I didn't like that Yamato was so easily influenced, but I guess it was for story progression. It was a short series after all.

P.S. If you ever love someone who you can't figure out and are so different from you, keep on it. It's one of the most rewarding things and comes with the best feelings life could ever offer. After you love someone like that, you'll never be able to settle loving someone boring who is very like you, trust.
