Title: depresed? **** SPOILERS ****
Post by: shuin on August 01, 2005, 09:07:48 AM
well now we see the ending of the manga "Ichigo 100%" what is ur opinion about the ending and why?

to me my opinion is BAD... why? because i really look forward to manaka and aya ending but the way i saw the manga is that nishino (waaaaa) i liked nishino but not the way liked most of aya because she is so gentle and intelligent woman to me and she and manaka have pair (you will say it because of their hair and face) they much have same face... if you have hear that the lovers have the same face (or almost) they are destined so now what is your opinion about this sad (because its not aya) ichigo 100%?

Aya having been liking and loving Manaka through out all those years in junior high school onwards.. But there is no space or no chances to express her feeling to Manaka. After a several tries but still cant , Aya decided to keep her feeling to Manaka.

But nearly to the ending , in the room while Aya teaching Manaka for the exam ( the last year ) . She cant wait anymore therefore she want to kiss Manaka so much. But during that time Manaka was so called "asleep" and hug her , then Aya hug him back tightly. This was saw by Yui.

If Aya didnt give up and wanted to make movies with Manaka . I guess they will have a happy ending cause they will stay contact with each other and decide happily about the creation of their movie. But most of all , it is decided by the writer.

Hope I can change the ending to Aya - Manaka.

Please dont misunderstand to those Nishino fans.
Cause I am a Aya fans thats why I will say this kind of things.

Haha..

I liked so much the end.

But, i feel that Aya deserves an more happy final.

That is what i also think..

It is not fair for Aya for waiting for 4 years..

It was Aya's own fault for waiting so long i say she fucked up big time.The ending was a surprise though =/

Ichigo Fans, you understand my feelings, right? *_*

Nshinio was the girl that get more close to Manaka, and not only in his dreams, also in his bad times, when Manaka needs a friend, Nishino was here!!

Isn't this enough?

Was VERY depressed... actually, dissapointed was more like it.
I would definitely go for Aya ending; I mean, thinking back on it, they were both in love with each other the moment they met at the rooftop and stayed that way for a very long, LONG time.  I guess Manaka really has strong feeling for Nishino seeing how he got back together with her for the third time, but being the guy he is, that really doesn't convince me.  IMO, Toujou and Manaka should have ended up together like how the story was set up in the beginning - I hate it when the characters have a change of heart in the middle of a story without a good enough reason; it seems like they are betraying their own feelings.  That's why I thought the ending with Nishino was botched; I mean, at least give us some explanation!!

Post by: three82 on August 12, 2005, 08:14:38 AM
Actually when i read until some middle chapter i have my own-ending couple for Ichigo 100%
Suitable to the title- Manaka should be going out with the girl who look like an ichigo (strawberry), in this case her panties is ichigo, that's mean Aya, the first girl who shown up strawberry panties to Manaka ...
So Toujou would be perfect with Manaka ....

Who is going to be with Nishino, don't forget about Manaka's friend who like her most, OOkusa... but include Higure-san who like her tooo... In my view point.. Nishino should be going out with OOkusa... Look their appearance...

Finally Satsuki, i think she should be going out with Amachi... cuz they finally failed to get the person who they love ... And they have typical personality

I've been analyzing why Kawashita-sensei, put Nishino and Manaka together..  Most of manga put the hero and heroine at the first chapter or volume... No matter what happened into their relationship in the middle of story, in the end they will be together... Probably Ichigo Manga-ka is tired with this kind of ending story which can be guessed from the beginning...

From the plot (i've only read till Vol.16), the main heroine (Aya) still can't be assertive to confess what her feeling to Manaka... Manaka has been confused by Toujou act. Remember when Aya talking about the boy that she liked in the locker room... she said it was a story for her new novel... or when she act at the last scene... she made Manaka thing that was an acting..

At the other side Nishino has finally found some reason to fall in love to Manaka, she try her best to get Manaka heart... including get **** (sorry) and her finally move was confess to Manaka with same way Manaka confess to her for the first time... I think that what Kawashita-sensei want to show.. It's meaningless if you fall in love to someone but the one you loved doesn't know even got confused by your act to him/her...

Still i am disappointed to the ending... why the manga-ka doesn't want to finish with the guessed ending...
Eventhough the ending is guessed but what we (i'm especially) want to know how the story is ending like that...
For example Aya is going to died and she finally got MAnaka's love and manaka doesn't make relationship to a girl anymore (lonely wolf)

whatever the ending i still place Ichigo 100% as one of my favorit manga...
<sorry for bad grammar still learning>

o yeah r u translated ichigo into your own national language (not mention english or japanese)... i try to re-make it into my own national language... i think it's fun

Nishino with Ookusa?

Well, seem that Ookusa wasn't interested in Nishino already, if that's the case... then he don't make truoble in the Manaka - Nishino Relatinship?

totaly agreed... it doesnt feel right, manaka being with Nishino... I was always like i hope Manaka ends up with Nishino but when it happend it just didnt seem right.
Title: Re: depresed?
Post by: Freeter on August 15, 2005, 05:09:14 PM
Of course it didn't seem right, he still has Aya's notebook.  Once Nishino finds that, boom, splitsville....

And you'd think after 4 years, Manaka would just skip the formalities and go straight into a proposal.  If I were Nishino in 167, I'd say to him, "Date? Date?  *points to ring*  Hello jackass, get a clue already...."  ::)

Post by: henh2o on August 19, 2005, 02:47:21 PM
needs more chapters with Nishino! personally the ending was decent. it was pretty suprising and sucks that aya didnt get with manaka. but iam happy he is with nishino.
Title: Re: depresed?
Post by: CrimsonStar on August 19, 2005, 07:47:17 PM
I am happy that Manaka ends up with Nishino at the end...But there are still so many loose ends that I can't help but feel troubled and confused.  It's also very confusing and depressing when so much detail was left out.  I really, really would appreciate it if Kawashita, in the last three chapters, gave us lots and lots of detail...Why did Manaka and Nishino get together? What situations and events made them get together?  What details/events/situations led up to the ending?  What happened to Nishino and Manaka after the end?  What happened to all the other characters during the four years?  What happened to the other characters after the end?   

It's all a bit confusing, just having Nishino show up like that, and although I'm happy...I'd just like more detail on Nishino's and Manaka's relationship and how it came to be before I feel some sense of closure.

but.. but... in ALL the story, the most close relationship was Nishino * Manaka! You didn't realize of that?

Post by: CrimsonStar on August 19, 2005, 08:18:38 PM
Nekoi_Hoshino, yes, I do realize that.  That's why I was rooting for a Nishino ending.  I'm sorry if my statements are confusing, but what I meant by 'more detail on Nishino's and Manaka's relationship' is that I just really want some more detail on why they did what they did at the end, what got them together, etc (I'm just repeating myself now)...This would give the ending more depth.

And I'm glad I'm not the only one dwelling on those questions, Nekoi_Hoshino.

Post by: iczelion_464 on August 27, 2005, 12:02:04 PM
well I don't know for u but if you see it with a certain point of view, you'll see that whenever Manaka is with Aya, he's always tormenting imself and both of them never talk to each other about their feelings, that's going nowhere if you ask me. But anytimes he's feeling down, Nishino's always there for im, and you can see that the moment he passes with Nishino's are very intense, so nishino's the best choice to live a life of passion and dreams.

Post by: snow_presto on August 31, 2005, 12:18:08 AM
Arrrg.  I just finished reading ch.167 and I had to vent my displeasure with the ending of Ichigo 100%.  I was hoping against all hope that Aya would get together with Manaka. :( :(  Oh well, I guess that's what you get for being passive about her feelings.  Conversely, I guess Nishino is probably a very good choice since she opened up to him and was always there for him without letting go of her own dreams.   

Regardless, I am, as the subject of this thread says, depressed with the ending.
Title: Re: depresed?
Post by: sillywilly on September 01, 2005, 01:29:36 AM
I dunno... I think he made the right choice. Personally, I think that Aya needed to experience all those emotions in order to advance her writing. Not only would she have gained substance, but she could have genuinely applied those feelings to give depth to her work. Yes, seeing Aya and Manaka come together would have been nice, but would that truly have been for the best? Would Manaka's work truly have been his own, or the product of Aya's talent? For example, Harry Potter. When you watch the movies, do you think to yourself, "Damn, that director was what made the movie!" If you do, think harder!! If the author didn't write the damn story, there would be no vision to create. Now, on to Nishino. The strength of her character was unbelievable! Just for a moment, think about the past relationships you've had and tell me if you could have appreciated the way she handled herself. She gave Manaka room to grow, she never tried to control him, never belittled his dream, and most importantly, she stood by him even in his weak moments. I know they broke up a couple of times, but as far as patience is concerned, don't forget that she is only human. Everyone has their limits. Even so, she continually supported him, even if it meant placing herself in a situation that she knew would end in heartbreak. Time and time again, Manaka's insensitive actions caused her pain, but she still accepted him and all his faults. I think her character was the most deserving... but an Aya ending would have been cool too.

and as a side note, even though Aya didn't get with Manaka... she became an award winning author!!! how can you possibly think she got the short end of the stick?!!?

Title: Re: depresed?
Post by: Zero07 on September 01, 2005, 11:53:50 AM
i felt sad for Toujo Aya not ending up happy a very sad ending for Toujo except for maybe her life in the future as an author looks bright and may end up happy, i think no matter what Toujo will always love Manaka, her books will probably only chronicle her feelings through her troublesome relationship with Manaka, if Satsuki and Amachi weren't around i bet u Manaka would have had more time to get to know Toujo and the ending would have been different, Manaka will probly always think of the girl with strawberry panties in the setting sun
Title: Re: depresed?
Post by: Ichigo Fans on September 01, 2005, 10:34:30 PM
The person who started the strawberry panties is Toujou aya.. Everyone thought she will end with manaka.. Cause starting of the manga is about strawberry panties.. Therefore the manga continue..
Title: Re: depresed?
Post by: Freeter on September 01, 2005, 10:58:12 PM
LOL, Manaka should've ended up with the panties at the end.

"Oh ichigo pantsu, I love you...."  :-*

If I remember correctly, Nishino also owned a pair of strawberry print panties... Technically, he did end up with the strawberry panties!! For all you know, Nishino was wearing them when she got back from france!!

I find it funny that many of you sympathize with Aya, while she is about the only girl in the manga i didn't symapthize with. Maybe im just cold, but the Aya character just annoyed me. Even though ultimatly Nishino <3, i really felt sorry for Satsuki, alot, for all the attempts she had with Manaka and how he never responded to them.
Title: Re: depresed? **** SPOILERS ****
Post by: Xiax on September 07, 2005, 07:38:00 PM
I always thought Satsuki's rejection was because Manaka thought he didn't deserve her, and that hes already bad enough with Nishino and Toujo.... besides, i found Satsuki as a almost-main character, one that appears troughout the manga to make the story more interesting, which she did make....

I agree with all my heart.  I absolutely loved Nishino, from her attitude to looks.  But man as it went on I started to *hate*  :-\ Aya.  Its not that she's a bad person, but there was just something about her Shyness that drove me crazy (and probaly the way Manaka acted toward her (Huge Nishino fan lol)).  In anime I love all types, shy, strong, etc...(normally shy, semi-shy) but not here.

Therefore I loved the ending  ;)

...... now im really startin 2 get a bit pissed by e nishino fans....
sigh i dun understand wats so great bout tsukasa, yeah she has looks n blah blah blah but with her personality id rather not hav her i bet if i had a relationship with her it will only last up 2 half a  year at e most shes just not relationship type.....
Aya on e other hand oh yes she's more lik it i will feel as though she will stay by me my whole life.Now see here did tsukasa cry as much as aya when she broke up not even by half she didnt feel much of it.Did u see how much aya cried when she got reject did u see it?did u see her really sad face?have u ever thought bout her feelins?let me tell u this i am fair to all e girls i empatise them n notiice tht e 1 most loyal n loving would b aya she may not hav shown it 2 manaka but it can b seen second would definitely b satsuki she is definitely a person who is loyal to her love too n last but not least tsukasa.
U may think tht she is e 1 who loves manaka most bcause she was able to express her love e most 2 manaka but u must think was aya n satsuki allowed to show as much love to manaka as tsukasa did especially aya.Nop they werent given e chance,all of it was given to tsukasa n only to her which i think is unfair.All three of them should b given a equal chance to express their love.only then can we say who is e best girl.Now think of this if not 4 tsukasa being with manaka do u think aya wouldnt hav told manak her feelins 4 him personally i think she would confess but i not sure bout u guys.

well thts all i'f got 2 say i really hop i can turn e nishino fans into aya fans.One day if i become a mangaka i will make a story almost similiar but i will give e chance to e character lik toujo or satsuki n i'll see yr comments then.

I wanted Toujo to be with Manaka. Since the beginning of the manga when it showed Toujo falling, I fell in love with her. When Toujo first confessed to Manaka through the door and then got rejected, I felt so bad, I wanted to cry. Too bad I don't cry so easily, at some points in time, I really do wish I could've cried..It's a shame Manaka chose Nishino over Toujo.

Title: Re: depresed? **** SPOILERS ****
Post by: Urasada on July 21, 2006, 09:22:27 AM
Depressed is not really the right word for this. More like "pissed off".Toujo was effective character in the story and so was Tsukasa. But Its kind of unrealistic that He chose someone who he spent less time with. Relationship grows with interaction between people and if I can remember correctly there was more Manaka Toujo scene than Manaka Tsukasa scene. He talked and thinked more intimately with Toujo too if I remember correct. With Tsukasa he was just lively and at times he felt intimate. So now if Manaka was a person and could think like a person **indirectly poiting at mangaka** I would probably chose someone who I felt closer too. Seeing as how more time is spent w/ toujo Im pretty sure they would feel closer to each other while Nishino whose disappeared for half of the manga in between. So Now because the mangaka threw all the effort away and chose to pair Manaka with Nishino who built their relationship in the last...what? 1-2 volume, im kinda upset. Its like throwing away car for a bike.

I'm really depressed right now, just got 3hrs. of sleep after finishing the last volume, seems like I couldn't get any sleep, I'm still thinking of the ending. What makes me feel bad is I spent 5 days of my life reading the whole manga and by body clock is all messed up. I don't have the urge to eat, sleep or do the things I usually do (playing videogames, internet). Its not because of ecchi content in this manga, not for Satsuki and Nishino but Aya and Aya alone.

I hate cliche endings for one, I might have like this ending if I didn't fell in love with Aya. You see, Aya is the girl I want to meet and I don't care if Nishino looks like a celebrity. I can't explain it but there is something about Nishino that I don't like, maybe the fact that she always gets in Aya's way.

Nishino-fans say that people prefer Aya because they sympahtize with her because for the sacrifices she made, I for one, might be guilty of that but its not just sympahty or pity that's why I choose Aya, but her character. Sticking for someone you love and all her encounters with Junpei (cute in a way) left me so moved. There are no chapters better for me than Aya ones that's why the ending struck me so hard and made me this depressed, sad and disappointed. Never in my life have I felt like this. I was on the verge of adding this on my favorite manga list, but part of me is hating mangaka for making me feel this worse. Its like she shattered ones dream.

Lol, 3hrs of sleep?! Anyhpow I second your opinioon, and thats exactly why the ending doesnt make sense at all. If someone sacrifices so much, the person she feels affection for will bound to see that one way or another unless the guy is total retard or whatsoever. At one point I thought the manga was going to show its full potential, but when Manaka was too dumb to see what he was to Aya, I started to have doubts. And I came to same conclusion as Syun ^^. Didnt add it to my fav list ┓-

Aya and Manaka relationship was probably already over after toujo said she wanted to go to a different uni than manaka, sure toujo still had feelings for manaka, but if aya wants to part ways after uni then what point is it for the ending  of the manga to have a manaka and aya ending
Title: Re: depresed? **** SPOILERS ****
Post by: syun_ukiya on August 05, 2006, 12:15:30 AM
It's just because she was talked over by Misuzu! If I remember correctly Manaka also planned to take a test on a university Aya plans to enroll, it also has a film club but its higher than what Manaka was aiming for. Aya just ended to Keio because Manaka told her that he is now together with Nishino.

i think the manaka and nishino ending actually fits, i sort of reread much of the manga, and i don't know why but i felt like the ending fit, its not like i like the ending. there was some moment within the manga which foreshadowed that manaka wouldn't end up with toujo, but maybe it wasn't that at all, it seemed like becus both aya and manaka couldnt confess to each other they weren't ever meant to be together, but the attraction could be there becus they were trying to confess

and i just listened to the drama cds! east side is really the best! if you compare the drama in both east and west side, east side just swallowed west! for me ichgo ended after the reunion 3 years after they graduated. and nishino, well she'll be in france forever!

Same here. I admit that i was depressed too that it didn't end with Toujo at first but then i made up my mind after reading it few more times. I understood that Manaka liked Nishino more than Toujo at that time and it was the right decision. Nishino and Manaka had gone through a lot and they deverse to be together.

and i just listened to the drama cds! east side is really the best! if you compare the drama in both east and west side, east side just swallowed west! for me ichgo ended after the reunion 3 years after they graduated. and nishino, well she'll be in france forever!

LOL. For me the original intentions are always the best. Modified copies can be better but they will always be a fact of a modified of the original. Just accept the reality that in the original story Manaka liked Nishino more than Toujo at the end.

Aya and Manaka relationship was probably already over after toujo said she wanted to go to a different uni than manaka, sure toujo still had feelings for manaka, but if aya wants to part ways after uni then what point is it for the ending  of the manga to have a manaka and aya ending
It's just because she was talked over by Misuzu! If I remember correctly Manaka also planned to take a test on a university Aya plans to enroll, it also has a film club but its higher than what Manaka was aiming for. Aya just ended to Keio because Manaka told her that he is now together with Nishino.

Toujo said that her parents wanted her to go to a better college but either way Manaka didn't care but to do filming to skip the college work. After his failure he tried his best to be able to enroll with Toujo. Even if Manaka didn't get to Toujo's university, Toujo would have enrolled to Manaka's college if they were going out.

The reason, they ended up taking different paths was because of the Toujo's mysterious brother as boyfriend caused by the bra embarassement misunderstanding and then Nishino's accidental coincidence and the slightest chance and luck recived Manaka's acceptance. After that Manaka just did the decision of what he believed (and i do too with my own morals) to reject Toujo's confession. He would be the worst if he accept a girl's love having a girlfriend.

Well, my opinion is that Manaka wasn't the prize after all, imagine that... Junpei's a little boy with no character at all, who can't make his own decisions and has a below-par IQ. I realize I felt depressed mainly because:

- Aya ended with a badly broken heart and hopes, and could only tell herself to be strong. She got the emotionally worst part, by far, because you could tell she felt intensely. And that makes me feel it's an unjust situation. No professional sucess makes you happy just by itself.
- Tsukasa ended up with a self-deluding mediocre that couldn't get into college. A short-term happy solution, but what's going to happen next? At least she studied something.

Other situations that I'd like to comment:

- Satsuki ended fair better, with her options open, a career at the family business, personal growth and all.
- The guys ended like they started, happy buffons. Ok for me.
- Amachi was annoying but at least had some kindness, he could've ended up having kind of an affair with Satsuki to lighten up both their hearts. Unwanted baby and all, lol.
- I think the luckiest was Misuzu

Well the grass isnt always greener on the other side.
I only know of kawashita to have broken that random anime/manga rule
where the first main character ends up with whoever he/she meets first (2nd main character usually)
i have a feeling school rumble will be the second poor harima.

and whats this about some extra chapters?

Ugh, I wish I looked more carefully and didn't rush making my post in the Toujo fanclub page. But ya, like I said there, I'm holding onto this prospect which makes me less depressed about the ending Kawashita Mizuki gave us.

http://www.yanime.com/forums/index.php?topic=5183.msg130427#msg130427 (http://www.yanime.com/forums/index.php?topic=5183.msg130427#msg130427)

I can only wish that Kawashita Mizuki will make an extra final chapter with like 50 pages(lol I know it's impossible since the manga finished so long ago) depicting the Toujo ending with Manaka.

I am a newbie. I read the manga recently.

The manga ended with so many vital questions unanswered. I am not talking about the paring issue, but about the main theme of the manga. Anyway, I think her dealing of the ending showed her inability as a storyteller. So I will be very happy if the mangaka writes Ichigo 200% (or 101%?) in the future.

However I doubt it. Mainly because the mangaka does not seem to be that capable. She seems to lack knowledge and experience about relevant areas, the filming industry for example. Without such knowledge, can she write a manga whose main character is a young film director? I believe the abrupt ending of the manga is probably related to this issue, the mangaka's ability.

Post by: GonFC on January 25, 2009, 08:33:00 PM
Yes i like Nishino alot and i like Manaka choosing her. I really like how she tease her and how she get jealous. I guess separating is not a bad thing. It makes me feels that even though she is away she still waits for him. I remember in some chinese phrases saying "Things that you can't get is always the most beautiful."(Maybe bad translation) Being away might make them like each other more.
This just reminds me of Jinyong's novel "The legend of Condor hero" and "The heaven sword and Dragon sabre." In "the heaven sword and dragon sabre," the main character choice the last girl that he met and that girl is kind of similar to Nishino (like to tease the main character and help the main character) and also a Princess of the Yuan dynasty (Like toujou's story). But in that story, i really want the main character to choose the first girl (a normal boatman's daughter) he met during his teen (Like a childhood friend in Toujou's story too). However, the author change that first girl to evil in the middle of the story. Otherwise I guess that story would make many reader think that the first girl should be with the main character like Ichi100%. But at least everyone in the story got a happy ending.

In Ichigo 100%, I guess it is ok but I feel very sad for both Aya Toujou and Satsuki Kitaoji. It feels like the author left two girl waiting forever. But i am really happy Nishino waited for Manaka. Have to say it. There is a few part of the story where the author random show Nishino either wait for Manaka, thinking about Manaka or working hard because of Manaka. While Toujou is always close to Manaka but does not seems like there is any development for their part but kept on improving for Tsukasa. But Tsukasa is a very tricky girl too like that last girl character in "The Heaven sword and Dragon Saber".

What's similar to "the legend of condor hero" is that East Heretic, West Vemon, Sorth Emperior, North Beggar, and Central Divine. That direction thing is very similar too. LOLZ

Aya is very nice but in reality, i would feel that Nishino love manaka more. Plus Aya really never said anything. I don't think it would be obvious in reality to think that she like him. Chinese quote "When you are in the circle, you can't see what is going on around you. However, the people outside of the circle see that it is obvious."

Post by: MINAMI KOTARO on January 26, 2009, 05:16:12 AM
once again! aya-chan number 1...satsuki-chan number 2

we can easily find a girl like nishino anywhere...even in my campus or even in the supermarket...she is cute, but nothing special...i still see her as a secondary character no matter how cute she is...

the best ending would be if all the girls paired with someone...
maybe like this!

manaka x toujo
satsuki x amachi (read chp 63...and u'll agree with me)
nishino x higure
kozue x migishima (granted)
misuzu x uchiba (granted)
chinami x komiyama
yui x ookusa or sotomura
kurokawa sensei x the movie director

a happy ending for everyone...
i really had a best hope for 'manaka x toujo' and 'satsuki x amachi' ending

a girl doesn't supposed to say anything, and a girl supposed to be waiting! the one who should confess is manaka, coz he is a man, so he should act like a man...she hv done pretty well by showing manaka many clue...even the most idiot man would notice it...but that manaka is really stupid, he is more stupid than idiot.

and we never know what nishino has been doing when she was in france...i mean, she was with that chef higure in france...maybe they hv been in such a relationship...
and toujo stayed in japan as manaka too...its obvious they hv a long time, 4 years...and it would be more logical that manaka would end up going out with toujo in the end.

Chinese quote "When you are in the circle, you can't see what is going on around you. However, the people outside of the circle see that it is obvious."
Aya did something at 1st when she had a friend talking I think it was yui she mentioned "is it okay to love someone who has a girlfriend?" well she said it clearly while manaka was eavesdropping the the whole time he realized that the person she was referring to was him coz' he's d only guy aya gets along with that time & at that time nishino dumped manaka-kun . It's just the misunderstanding at the festival that she said that she had someone with going to the event called "love sanctuary". thus the result decided half-heartedly chose nishino because he thought that toujou has a boyfriend & It was ok for him to date nishino again since she has a boyfriend already.. But that really wasn't the guy manaka was expecting instead it turned out to be her brother not her boyfriend thus when they met with toujou manaka-kun didn't hold nishino's hand & feeling relieved that the guy wasn't toujou's boyfriend..

Aya did nothing? Manaka's at fault he was too stupid to concern bout others feeling & treated them equally like they were toys to be picked whose better to play with.

I say manaka's just too naive not to realize aya's feeling for him..

I'm sorry if I had offended nishino-fans the ending was not most ppl would want to happen I just finished reading the whole series today well correct me if i'm wrong I just read the series for 2 days

& I think Aya's most deserving girl than nishino regardless on how their life is going to be I'm sure he'd b happy with aya
