I... Don't know what to say really. I think that all those girls should be happy, and it's tragic that they ended up loving the same guy.

I think that Satsuki was hurt the most, I mean, Aya or Nishino at least had something else aside of love towards Manaka, Satsuki just wanted to be with him, and he pushed her off every time.

But still, when Nishino took Manaka for three days to "be her own", or the scene when Toujo confesses her love - I see that image of her face when Manaka says "I'm sorry... Sorry...Sorry", and every word fallen shatters my heart.
And again, Satsuki... He told her that there's another girl he likes, I flipped the page, and my heart stopped for about 30 seconds, the image of Satsuki's face... It just killed me with emotions...

I feel really stupid writing all this, like some kind of emo kid, but that manga is so unexpectedly deep, it insane!
I still don't know what I'd do, and I think that's the whole beauty of that story - no real happy ending, and feeling of loosing something...
Thank you Kawashita Mizuki!

Well I have been a Nishino fan from the start of ichigo100% so I was really happy with the ending but I agree Satsuki deserved much more than what she got. If Nishino didnt end up with Manaka, I would actually be happy if Satsuki ended up with Manaka rather than Aya and its wrong to say that Junpei never considered Satsuki as his potential partner coz he was also interested in her its been a long time since I read this manga but if I remeber correctly Junpei actually considered going out with Satsuki but had to change his mind when Aya did something. The other reason was when Satsuki asked Junpei to give a straight answer, Junpei asked for more time which proves that Junpei did have feelings for her. I remember one scene which was especially touching when they went for a shoot at the beach and Satsuki fell sick and she kept asking Junpei if he needed her and Junpei kept hugging her while Satsuki cried if I remember correctly. But for once I would really like to see a girl who is introduced later in a manga just like Satsuki to win for once for a change coz its not fair for a girl who is outside of the love triangle only to be thrown away like trash

@dark mage
no, dude! satsuki wouldn't make a good couple with manaka...
the author should pair SATSUKI with AMACHI , read chapter 63 !
u can see amachi actually a good guy and would make a good couple with satsuki.
manaka doesn't deserve anything from satsuki
i really hope satsuki and amachi have their own special chapter.!

@dark mage
you are right, Satsuki deserved much more than what she got. But trashed by mangaka for sake of manga cry

Too bad, there isn't any chapter related Satsuki and Amachi since both of them is a good person. I think they deserve became a couple as prize of their effort eyes

Because I'm not sure if people would classify some of this as spoiler or not I'm just going to be safe though most people perusing this have already read this in most cases.
Spoiler (highlight to view)
I personally saw Satsuki as the original character put into place to spur Aya into action or to at least influence Aya into acting in confessing her love for Junpei before anything with Tsukasa could ever be reestablished since she was always pushing Junpei around and whenever he ran into Aya it always seemed to be a nice reprieve for him. Yes a lot of times he felt very comfortable with Satsuki but at the same time there were times when he also felt very pressured with her always forcing herself on him. It of course doesn't take much to figure out that Satsuki was more of a throw away character that was there to simply make Junpei's choices more difficult and to keep things from being simple. She also of course was perfect for being the fan service that is so popular apparently in shounen harem romance. I myself am not a fan of her type of character because usually her type is cast simply to show off as much as possible in a shounen manga and becomes distracting, annoying, and detracts from the story in general. Satsuki though is usually more bearable at times since she can also act as a pick me up for Junpei when he was feeling sorry for himself (when is he not feeling sorry for himself?) and inadvertently pushing Aya and Junpei together. It appears to me though that towards the later part of the manga Kawashita realized that Satsuki wasn't a strong enough to push to really put Aya and Junpei together and so comes what I believe to be the reason that Mukai was introduced to be a much stronger, more direct push towards JunpeixAya. Did Satsuki get the short end of the stick? Yes, she did, no real argument there since its accepted by most in some way, shape, or form. I think I would have liked her character a bit more if she was less of a friend and more of an actual push in the relationship and hence the need for a character like Mukai to give a great big push in the relationships. I like all of the characters with the exception of Chinami but Satsuki wasn't necessary once Mukai was introduced since she was simply doing what Mukai was through more questionable methods, intentionally, and usually ending up ecchi (although mukai usually came to the same ecchi result too -_-). Sacrifices must be made and Satsuki was one of them.

If it makes sense, your probably wrong.
