And, as my analysis showed, the baby would've been delivered two-three months TOPS after her acceptance, and being two-three months behind everyone else is nothing. She could've easily caught up to everyone else, especially with her talent, and I think the admissions team could've AND would've seen seen that in foresight, and treasured her as a valuable asset to their track team.

    P.S.: I think he's given up. He's logged on plenty of times after I had posted.
    That is only considering her admission to the school and not considering her ability to practice the reason why she got accepted. She was accepted because of the fact that she had high achievements during her HS days and great expectations. While bearing a child, she would fall behind the rest of peers not only academic wise but also physically ready to participate in a tournament or even just practicing again. I believe she practice high jumping even 2months into her pregnancy if I recall correctly. So that means she stopped after that, which means there is at least another 7months where she haven't participate in high-jump exercise/activity. And thats only considering the delivery of the child... lets just consider that .. 7months being inactive is a big hurl to overcome.

    And of course she can't practice right away after just giving birth so that's plus 1-2 months.

    Yep...So ~8months of being inactive.


    Another point I wanna understand is, a recommendation = scholarship? If yes, then Suzuka's scholarship would be cancelled if she did decide to attend college, wouldn't it?

    theres just a lot of holes to fill up... time warping was the major problem this caused lack of detail on what was happening around them... and little info was given to cover it up... I mean what really happend to suzuka? did she study or not? (im guessing she didnt lol)
    You know what? I heard that if two people go to toudai together... Then they can...

    Well from the looks of the last/second to last chapter. No she didn't study no attended college. She is a 100% housewife.

    Hmmm... Suzuka may be more mature than Love Hina, but it's plot lines can get topsy-turvy sometimes (biggest problems are plot-holes created by all the time-forwarding, just like how Zmon described it up there). And yeah, it does try to portray a realistic love situation but doesn't do that so well. It's still a good read anyway. Personally, I prefer Love Hina due to it's more whimsical nature (and that my taste is laffs>drama). Ichigo100% IMO's all mostly pantyshots and the guy's overactive imagination on the girls and left a rather foul taste in my mouth.

    Whoooot high five!!! XD

    I agree that the timeskips created alot of dilemnas.

    SO in ichigo100%, nothing else really hit you but the pantyshots. I dont think his actions(or his thoughts) where any out of the ordinary for an "average" guy around his age considering he never been in a relationship before. Suddenly surrounded by people that cherish him its hard to choose 1 and left go of the others.

    i thought the manga was awesome. But the ending to the manga was okay but does anyone else feel it was kinda rushed.

    A little bit. I never liked timeskips especially when they don't tell you what happened during that time. That may be the reason why you felt it was rushed as well?

    I only need to say one thing. She holds the no. 1 high school record for high jump. One. First. Art is like riding a bike, once you learn, you can never forget it. Do you honestly think that an eight months' leave will prevent her from becoming the dominant force she once was? The pregnancy was an obvious trial, and Suzuka definitely had enough willpower to overcome it. Seo just made her choose not to.

    I mean in all seriousness bro, if you opt for pessimism as much as you make it sound like you do, Akitsuki might have well as given up trying to best Arima in high school since he had no prior accomplishments in track, he was running in blind. Suzuka should've just gotten the child aborted so they could find an easy way out to go to Seojoudai. Or altogether, Akitsuki should've abandoned her for Honoka, or even Hashiba, since Suzuka was playing such a bitch to get. But no, if you don't understand by now the heavy conflict is what drives this plot!

    And as to Alex90Lee, how the hell can you so carelessly condense Ichigo 100% into a series of panty shots? That's both completely ignorant of you and tremendously disrespectful to the author. Ichigo 100% is about more than just fanservice, the female leads just happen to be hot as shit. It's about everyone, not just Manaka's, everyone's growth into maturity from middle school up until graduation, it's about Manaka's struggle to realize his dream as a filmographer and taking the first step towards that in Izumisaka, it's about how he built the legacy he left behind the school with the film club he built from the ground up, it's about how his major character flaw, indecisiveness, is going to lead to either him finding the girl of his dreams, or everyone leaving him- seriously, I could go on and on. But I don't need a thesis to prove that it's beyond retarded to call anything other than Ikki Tousen pure fan service.
