Its a link to the forum where i read those spoilers actualy the guy now also posted screnshots from new chapter. You dont need to register to view them.
Okay, he will probably go with suzuka at the end of this story. (Though don't count you chickens before your eggs have hatched, she could just effect him deeply, or die.)
The new girl likes him. There will be drama. They probably won't go together. This was probably added as a "pick me up" in the storyline so noone worries about honoka anymore. (reminds me of toujou) I personally want to see the Yui thing get more fleshed out. It's like the mangaka is intenitonally avoiding adding her in chapters to speed up the time so there can be a reuniting chapter between him.
As far as the why does honoka go with atsuki comment, "childhood friends" they both knew each other well (more like honoka, because atsuki was being a douch-bag. Not that honoka noticed.) and began to like each other.
This seems to be one of the few manga's out like this that has major charater development throughout the story. As opposed to around the end. (I'm looking at you, "love hina and Ichigo 100%")
I beg to differ on that subject. If you've been reading the whole series, it's impossible to miss the fact the Suzuka is one of the series lacking in that department. So far, only the characters of Yamato(MOSTLY Yamato) and Suzuka have been revealed(or developed). All the other characters are given a scene or so, but nothing so much as to actually make you emotionally attached. Honoka came close, but then she disappears for a few volumes only to reappear and then no story regarding what had happened during the time she went AWOL.

^another example: Yui.
Plus Yamato's track experiences just kinda...disappeared. Give it up to mistimed time jumps.
Especially Yui! That girl came close to having taken Yamato's...ehem...virginity(not that he deserves to be laid) and we still don't know much about her(except that she works on a cafe, is terrible at cooking, and has an ex-boyfriend). *sigh*
And yeah, the track did disappear. I thought that Suzuka was a series that revolved around track and at how it would build the relationship between Yamato and Suzuka. Guess I misinterpreted this concept which was obviuosly present during the past volumes.
Meh, the mangaka thought of a way to end it...and is now apparently having second thoughts.
And along the way, he's decapitating the whole essence of the series which he himslef worked hard to weave. So much for his second thoughts. Yet we're still here to witness the gruesome end. -_-
Ichigo 100% Has no character development? Uh. No.

If this manga is to continue through their college lives, I don't see how track won't be the focal point of Suzuka and Yamato's relationship.
It's how they met, it was what caused them to be attracted to each other, it's the main reason (Other than Yamato's innate ability to neuter himself) for why Yamato hasn't gone off eloping with Honoka or Yui a long time ago.
But if the mangaka opts for the shorter slightly rushed ending, which evidence points to, then track becomes another unimportant literary vechicle the mangaka used to bring the characters together.
It's inconsistant. Kouji Seo had most of the storyline pointing to a quick ending but left enough holes and loose ends to justify extending the manga.

Join the movement today.
I wish he'd get on with his justification though. He clearly extened the manga for further character(and story) development, which I haven't really seen based on the other characters. It would have been better for the manga to end during the time Suzuka accepted Yamato's confession. That would have been enough of a closure, instead of creating more loose ends as you afore mentioned.
Ah well. This manga went to shit a long time ago anyhow.
