    Heard of the manga, Clannad??It's about time they turned it into an anime. I saw the first ep, I think it started last week, and it was good. I'll be watching this now. Same creators of Kanon and Air so the genre isn't really new.

    I agree with genocidegrand.

    Although... it had more potential with the track and field, university, etc.

    Could have been longer, but after the pregnancy, everything changed.

    All KEY is good for is creating an emo anime with a town that allows you to grant wishes for absolutely no particular reason at all. Might as well call this Kanon the 3rd.

    Yeah they kind of all have similarities with the way that the characters all die except for the main characters!!!!

    i liked the ending though it did feel a bit rushed kinda suprised nothing happened between yasunobu and miki though. and didnt the end make like the previous chapters about the college and if he'll b able to get in utterly poitnless? that annoyed me for some reason.

    Well, I mean, the guy had to end it somehow.

    Although Honoka and Yui popping up at the end was pretty funny.

    Well fuck that!

    Hm..

    Seriously. We've seen Love Hina. We know the Japanese couple's dream of entering college together, much less getting into a tier one college like Seijoudai or Toudai with your loved one. With Yamato gaining admittance into Seijoudai with Suzuka, it looked like he had more than anybody could ask for, but it all came crashing down once they found out about Suzuka's pregnancy.

    That, I think, is where the central plot of Suzuka revolved around. Sure actually getting Asahina to be his girlfriend has a herculean task, as she's proved time and time again that she can be the biggest bitch on the planet, but I think that a dual admittance into a tier one college plus bright futures as both sprinters and high jumpers is something more horrible to be denied. Plus, during the wedding she said she was happy when he kept chasing after her, so that implies that the affection wasn't onesided and if Asahina decided to up the ante, Akitsuki definitely would have followed suit.

    I think the manga handled most of the situations quite well. I was extremely pleased at the turnout of the pregnancy, as they decided to go with a birth instead of an abortion. This is a stoic contrast to American society, where the females are so undedicated to their husbands, and definitely vice versa as well, that the most overwhelmingly probable course of action would be not to get married, and abort the child. Honoka was a sweet girl, and I definitely wouldn't have minded to be able to see their relationship blossom a little more before the breakup, but like Honoka says herself, once Asahina was in the picture, she had no chance. I also really would've liked to see Hashiba or even Megumi or Yuuka, since I thought the plot confict with Yuuka was essentially meaningless since it literally ended with a sentence, "Sorry.. I'm engaged." Seriously, devoting over seven years of your life to hear THAT? Ugh, I've never seen time wasted more.

    The only problem with the manga I had is how they handled the pregnancy situation, dropping out of college isn't the answer. There are plenty of teachers in America who teach while pregnant and then take a two weeks maternity leave. Catching up with two weeks' worth of material is by no means an easy task, but doable, as people with appendicitis and bronchitis and other ailments know the difficulties of making up much work as well, but you see that kind of stuff everyday. What I'm trying to say here is that if the manga were to go in a direction where both of them were able to stay in college, it's not really an unrealistic scenario. I really do admire Akitsuki's heart and drive in his willingness to sacrifice his track scholarship and entrance to Seijoudai, but let's be honest, it was pretty reckless. The payoff for four years of hard work in college would be immense, as Akitsuki would have both a college degree from one of the most distinguished universities in Japan as well as a career as a star track athlete. That equals one thing: $$. A pregnancy on average is nine months, and Asahina was three months pregnant before their senior term had ended, so that implies maybe a month tops of school plus a month of summer break, which translates into a five month pregnancy. She would've delivered the baby four months into her freshman term, the easiest college term, so it's not even like she was pregnant as a Senior with final exams rolling around. However, I will always be sad whenever I read a high school manga, because I hate it when graduation time rolls around the supporting characters have to say their sad lines, "We wil never meet like this again," (Ichigo 100%'s graduation chapter really got to me the most). Oh well, in a technological age such as today, staying in touch is literally as easy a press of a button. I think the biggest fear and sadness of graduation is the transition into an unknown and an unexpected. As a freshman in college, it's not even remotely as bad as I thought it would be. But, I think the ending could've been much, much more polished, and there was easily a happier route Seo could've taken the plot.

    In the end, this manga embodies a very important and essential idea: to follow your dreams, and with pure love, anything is possible. Great job Kouji Seo, you've made this manga a very heartwarming read. 10/10.
