Title: My thoughts on the darm ending.
Post by: Yuki Rito on February 02, 2009, 09:26:27 AM
Wah! Just finish reading ichigo 100% and i am totally emotionally-drained. :'( Never had any book or manga made me feel this way and I am an avid reader. I feel so sorry and indignant for Aya Toujo that my heart is shattered into pieces. I totally disagree with and reject the ending as it seems contrived and doesn't make sense, how the hell did this happened? I was crying tears of joy when Aya finally confesssed but turned out crestfallen, I tell you man, I feel like punching Manaka that bastard!! >:(

I am now cooling myself down and gave my analysis how the hell did it turn out this way...These are my views:

1. It is obvious that Aya is the one for Manaka, not that blondie. >:( They share the same dreams, they inspire each other and even Aya's career as a writer was started by Manaka; Manaka's source of inspiration was clearly Aya. The chemistry btw Aya and Manaka feels so pure and innocent, its more like love compared to his interaction with the other gals, which feels like there is a huge element of lust in it. Even Manaka stated that Aya is the only one that can make him feel the way he like, and with Aya everything is possible. Aya is more than perfect, she's the best gal:sweet, kind, gentle, refined, very intelligent, cute, pretty, shy, extremely humble, devoted to her love and not to mention, very wealthy. She did so much for Manaka, copying notes by hand for him, sacrificing the chance to go to a better school to be with him, contribute to the films he made and tutor that dumbass to get into highschool. A gal like Aya is sent by heavens to him!! Manaka is so lucky!!U won't find another gal like AYA!!Manaka must be a blind idiot to give Aya up, he is a disgrace to all guys out there! Feel so angry! Does Manaka have any brains? If I am his friend, I would kill him!! >:( If I am his father, I would fry him!! >:(

2. Ok..I have got calmer. One thing is that why the hell the relationship btw Aya and Manaka gets interrupted  whenever it was on the point of blossoming? There are tonns of misunderstandings btw them that never gave them a chance to develop their love. :( :( So many obstacles are there.. Amachi, Kozui n Satsuki play a huge part in creating these misunderstandings and destabalize their love. Why is that blondie so lucky? She only have one destabalizing factor in Higure and Higure is never as thick skin and forceful as Amachi and thus very little damage is done. It's very unfair on Aya!! :'( :'(

Continue..

3. Okok.. lets see.. I think the genius of Aya's writing abilities also play a part. I remember Manaka did say that Aya is too gifted as a writer and he feared that he might never match up to her and she is too good for him. That blondie's ability as a chef and his ability as a director is probably on the same level so thats why they can identify with each other. Both idiots face the same problems of being mentally drained during the 3 day vacation and thats when it seems they have bonded. What a plonker Manaka is, Aya never mind about this at all.. :'(

4. Blondie got lucky. She ended up working next to Manaka's workplace. >:(

5. Aya has not so good communication skills. Why did she told Manaka during the 3rd filming that she won't be going to the same university with him and that breaks Manaka's heart. I know she's shy and all but her ambiguous attitudes don't help matters. :'( :'(

6. Why are manaka's buddies so useless?? Misuzu, Satomura, Ookusa all knew Aya's feelings for him. Why they didn't push him harder?? If I m Manaka's buddy, I would have force him to confess to Aya!! >:(

7. oh yeah, on a side note, what happen to Ookusa? Such a promising character that vanishes after a brief period in the manga. He has a thing for that Blondie so why he did not try harder for her like that bloody Amachi? Why is it so unfair to Aya?? :'( :'(

8. I wish that Manaka and Aya would have make love in that hut so that their mutual love would crystallize but they got interrupted again. Darm!!

9. Lastly Manaka and Blondie relationship is crappy and tricky. It was never strong to begin with, they have to break up for 4 years, what a joke! If Manaka and Aya gets together, they would accept and deeply love each other immediately and no 4 years rubbish. Thats what love is all about, you accept the boy/gal for whoever they are!!

10. I was crying throughout the Aya's confession scene and the snow scene btw Manaka and Aya. I feel like dying when I reflected upon the fact that Manaka and Aya have the same fate number during the love sanctuary festival. :'( :'( :'(
The fate that binds them will always be there and I absolutely believe they will get together in the future. Kawashita's comments hints that the weird relationship btw Manaka and Blondie is a difficult one. Its clear that Aya still have feelings for Manaka and Manaka told her to wait for his and her movie, the precious thing that binds them forever. The ending is a open and very ambiguous one and it hints that Manaka and Aya together is definitely possible!

Darm that Mizuki Kawashita for this ending!! I think she come up with this controversial ending just for the sake of being controversial so that readers can remember her and thats not a what a good author should do. Thats what hacks strive for! Heard that it was because of a poll done, wonder if it is true? If true, to hell with you.


Sorry guyz! Pardon my long ramblings. I just need to get everything out. Aya had left me teary-eyed. I feel so empty inside. I can't think of anything else, not my gf, not school, not friends, not home, not anything, dun even feel like eating. I don't think I can sleep tonite. Feel so devastated. :'( :'( :'( How long did my fellow Aya Toujo fans took to get over this?? AYA TOUJO ALL THE WAY!!! LOVE AYA TOUJO!!! IF I EVER FIND AYA TOUJO, I WOULD LOVE HER WITH ALL MY LIFE!!

Post by: LiZzArD on February 06, 2009, 06:11:49 AM
why is he calling tsukasa blondie???I think he is over reacting about this story; but somehow I felt the same as him after I finished reading the manga ;full of symphathy for aya toujo but atleast the story made me happy in some part and I can also relate in some part but not the ecchi one hehehehe....the only thing I could say for u YUKI RITO get on with your life  ;D ;D ;D

take note I'm both aya and tsukasa's fan
Title: Re: My thoughts on the darm ending.
Post by: LiZzArD on February 06, 2009, 06:21:10 AM
I think YUKI needs a psychiatrist for him to move on with his life.....

no offense but I also felt empty and troubled after finishing this manga but I said to my self life is not perfect and not all love stories end with happiness so I just looked in the bright side and said it's not my problem if aya is not happy or if the ending is bad or whatever it is as long as I enjoyed reading it for some time and finished reading it...... 8)
Title: Re: My thoughts on the darm ending.
Post by: MINAMI KOTARO on February 07, 2009, 10:01:47 AM
yeah~ as i said before...
just send a letter to the author and u'll feel better...

but if u read the author's last note on the last volume of the manga, maybe u can feel better too...
have u read it? or not?
Title: Re: My thoughts on the darm ending.
Post by: LiZzArD on February 07, 2009, 07:24:31 PM
I've read it and I felt furious reading it at the fist time, but I realized whats the deal feeling angry at first right??? I'ts her story she don't care if you like it or not....
am I right??
Title: Re: My thoughts on the darm ending.
Post by: MINAMI KOTARO on February 08, 2009, 10:03:48 AM
u shouldn't be furious... ;D

part of the mangaka's last note :
"Toujo fans please don't be disappointed.i may have not drawn out her happiness in love. but i promise she'll have a great future!
manaka and nishino's future is more suspect. its hard to succeed in love. but its also hard to keep it"

its a lil ambiguous,
makes me think, maybe nishino and manaka would break up several days after the ending scene...
and then the war between aya, satsuki and nishino would be started once again...
its like somekind of clue for the sequel, eh?
Title: Re: My thoughts on the darm ending.
Post by: Yuki Rito on February 12, 2009, 08:16:40 PM
Yo, guys! It took me a while to get over the ending. It has left me pretty melancholic over the past few days.

Well, the comments clearly state that it is an open ending where everyting is possible and Aya and Manaka will be together again.

No matter how I look at it, from whatever angle, Manaka and Aya still look the best together. Aya is clearly the soulmate of Manaka.

It's beacuse of Aya's consideration and kindness( she did not openly show her jealousy to Manaka and was always considerate to him, even to the extent of encouraging Kozui to go out with him.) that she lose out to Blondie(I m not really fond of her).

Aya was too innocent in the game of love whereas Blondie is sharp and wily. She knows how to use her charms and openly shows her jelousy to Manaka resulting in Manaka's change of feelings.

Hell, until now I am still aggrieved. Manaka and Aya share the same dreams, they have the best chemistry(their rooftop scene never cease to moved me and I still feel pretty sad when I think of all the dreams they share together), they understand each other and whatsmore the pushup confession was suggested by Aya! They should definately be together and they will!

Post by: MINAMI KOTARO on March 06, 2009, 10:47:11 PM
when i think about it again...
what disturbing me the most isn't the fact that junpei picked tsukasa in the end.
but the way the mangaka ended aya and satsuki's story.
they deserved a better ending, maybe like misuzu's ending.

Title: Re: My thoughts on the darm ending.
Post by: Yuki Rito on March 08, 2009, 08:58:38 PM
Haha, LiZzArD, thanx for correcting me.

 
Yeah, thinking about it, Aya and Satsuki's ending really make the story feels incomplete. They should hav been pair up with sb else. But who do U think is the one for Satsuki?

I got a feeling that maybe the mangaka wanted to hint something: that everything is not yet over. Remember Junpei's final words at the end of the story that he is embarking on a new stage in his life.

All being said, the ending feels like a starting point of a new story rather than a finish, thats what I feel. hehe..

On a sidenote, I feel that Misuzu is pretty suitable for Manaka, they r both movie freaks. When she first appear, I thought that she would be added into Manaka's harem collection, but alas, it did not happen.

it would be really really weird if mizuzu fell 4 manaka she don't like pervies like him bro......heheheh
Title: Re: My thoughts on the darm ending.
Post by: MINAMI KOTARO on March 09, 2009, 10:08:23 AM
hm~ misuzu already found a better person which is uchiba.

it would be interesting if someday the mangaka unexpectedly make a sequel.

this is just my personal opinion,
if the mangaka someday really make an additional chapter for aya (just like misuzuXuchiba's chapter), i prefer amachi as the male protagonist.
not junpei.

if i'm not mistaken...
aya and amachi went to the same university...keio university wasn't it?
it would be interesting to see what happened

and it would be more interesting if amachi family's company went down and they met someone more rich and more handsome than amachi who fell for aya too in their university.
that would make amachi lost all his "weapon" except his devotion. lol

aaargh~ if only the mangaka made a better ending and conclude all the characters story with a clear conclusion.
i followed this manga from 2002 until 2005...3 years long, and the ending was just that???
the ending doesn't satisfy my 3 years of roller coaster ride.

yeah~ it was like the roller coaster crashed and now i'm dead...lol.
aya was the reason why i continued reading this manga.
but guess what i got after 3 years ride??? yeah...a lame ending for aya.
mayday...mayday...abandon the roller coaster...its going to crash...

but Tsukasa ain't that bad >.>

i mean i like aya more but i like tsukasa too

what makes me upset is the stupid ending and the time skip..

i mean i like aya more but i like tsukasa too

what makes me upset is the stupid ending and the time skip..

nobody said tsukasa was bad. she was a good choice too.
what made me disappointed was that crappy reunion ending for aya.
she was the main heroine, i think she deserved a better ending.
and for junpei & tsukasa, the mangaka should have made 1 or 2 chapters to explain more about their relationship. like: why he chose her, and how , etc, i mean we need to know the process. 4 years time skipped and then he suddenly chose her?
Title: Re: My thoughts on the darm ending.
Post by: LiZzArD on March 15, 2009, 09:00:55 PM
well what I know and what I read is that manaka chose tsukasa before she left am I right??
Title: Re: My thoughts on the darm ending.
Post by: AyaToujo on March 18, 2009, 01:16:20 PM
no i think he chose her after she left, all i want is the timeskip part chapters!! when aya and manaka were alone!
Title: Re: My thoughts on the darm ending.
Post by: MINAMI KOTARO on March 20, 2009, 01:17:42 AM
well what I know and what I read is that manaka chose tsukasa before she left am I right??

junpei broke his relationship with tsukasa as well as aya and satsuki before tsukasa left, so i think he didn't have any legitimate relationship to any girl within those 4 years.
Title: Re: My thoughts on the darm ending.
Post by: Yuki Rito on April 23, 2009, 05:50:45 PM
Haha, yo bros, sorry for the long absence.  Manaka isn't really a pervert, he is rarely dirty minded. His dear friend Satomura is though. A Manaka x Misuzu pairing would be a movie director combo, something like the Wachowski Brothers except they would be a couple cobo instead of a sibling combo. But glad that she found Uchiba. He is much better than Manaka who I feel is the most indecisive and idiotic male lead in Shounen harem manga. He is worse than Keitaro(Love Hina) and Yamato(Suzuka).

Hmm, Am I the only one who believe that Aya's love for Manaka is too strong for her to start a relationship with someone else. Amachi was clearly rejected by Aya in the story. Yeah, I feel that the Manaka's decision for choosing Tsukasa should be expound on more clearly. Everything would be different if the misunderstanding between Aya and Manaka did not occur.

Yeah, I m very curious about what happened during the four year timeskip, especially Aya's feelings towards Manaka.

Oh yeah, are there any gals here? Is there any gals who read ichigo 100%? I am curious about a gal's perspective towards the relationship in the manga.

for what it's worth, i feel satsuki was cheated the most.  no other girl put in more time and effort into attempting to cultivate a relationship with manaka than her; how many times did she make her advances, how many times did she vocalize her feelings, and how many times was she rejected?  no other girl even comes close to the amount of emotional highs, lows, and in-betweens satsuki experienced.  toujou did have great artistic compatibility with manaka, but manaka also felt the most comfortable around satsuki and that he could be his true self around her.  they also shared something huge: a sense of humor.

fact of the matter is!  manaka doesn't deserve any of those girls.  he can go rot in a ditch, in fact, that's exactly what he ought to do   
Title: Re: My thoughts on the darm ending.
Post by: colin on June 03, 2009, 11:06:38 PM
i think the story ended very good thou.

aya likes manaka because he is the first guy whom take note of aya's talent.
(kinda like a crashes to me)

manaka is like a nice guy and don't take advantages of girls thats why so many girls like him.

i can only say like what the manga had mentioned, if only manaka knows that the ichigo girl whom had fall down the roof is aya. then aya would had been his love.

but after he confess to Tsukasa and a string of issue happend, he knows that he is truely in love with her. not because of the ichigo panty but being together with her.

when they break up in between, it is not because they don't love each other but because Tsukasa feels that manaka is not totally in love with her. as manaka don't know whom he really like.

anyway.... can we have ichigo part 2??? :)

Post by: KujoSan on August 22, 2009, 10:37:44 PM
it all started with coincedences piling up around him..
his meeting with the strawberry panties led him to confess to tsukasa..

after all the 4 years he'd spent with her, being her boyfriend, being dumped, and all the moments after that, he finally realize that it was fate that hooked him up with tsukasa..
no matter what, that's what I think (now) about the story..

*actually, I like Aya more than Tsukasa..*  :P
Title: Re: My thoughts on the darm ending.
Post by: LiZzArD on October 09, 2009, 01:58:51 AM
yep I like tsukasa more than aya now.....because after reading it again tsukasa is the only heroine that made my heart thump a couple of times....and she reminds me of my wife......My lovely wife hehehehehe......

Seriously, i liked aya more than tsukasa. But i dont really have anything against Tsukasa, I just wanted to see more of happy ending for aya. She really deserves it. The author could have drawn aya and amachi going out together during the reunion. At least we get to see Aya moving on. It's just sad to see aya left broken like that.
Title: Re: My thoughts on the darm ending.
Post by: Aoshi101 on November 06, 2009, 02:33:22 AM
Well the ending that Kawashita-san chose for Aya was the correct one. Not all stories are happy endings and that was part of the message, I believe, that she was trying to send through Ichigo 100%. Sure, Junpei got a pretty happy ending, but in other ways he didn't. Both Nishino and Toujou provided to aspects of Junpei's life that Junpei really enjoyed. Unfortunately he wasn't getting enough of one side and he was getting too much of another. With Toujou by his side, his dreams were coming true about movie making, but there was no headway his is hobbies outside of movies. With the lack of anything outside of movies that interested both Junpei and Toujou, it was hard for them to connect as far as Kawashita-san allowed us to see.

Now Nishino brings to Junpei a whole new aspect of life. She was spontaneous, took initiative, plus she baked pasteries. Pasteries brings another hobby into Junpei's world that he knew nothing of, so he learns something new. He couldn't learn anything from Toujou because he knew alot of script writing and was an avid movie watcher himself, so Toujou's life of being an author wasn't exciting. What Junpei might have experienced for Toujou through the years he had with her in school was probably more admiration than a crush or love. He was always amazed of her writing skills (at some point jealous) and the fact she was already making head way into her dream when they met in Jr. High. Junpei on the other hand didn't even have a camera of his own up until right before high school, so his dream was still on hold.

Toujou is my favorite character in the series but I totally agree with the ending given. It was the right choice for Junpei. Can't have a good conversation with someone if all you do is agree on everything. Alot of times, conversations in relationships are actually more confrontational or debatable which makes for the best conversation. A lesson in life I learned. May not apply to all relationships but its what I've seen quite alot.

Post by: SooDEAD on January 25, 2010, 05:01:38 AM
Aww...I just can't bring myself to type up a post after reading Aoshi's post.>.<

However..I still kinda agree Yuki because Ichigo 100% was started because of Toujou and they fit so well together.:'(

I also feel sympathy for Minami who followed the manga for 3 years because of Toujo. :'(

Anyways, to be honest I kinda feel like there's been a hole inside me after reading the ending because the story was so good but it had ended so quickly cause I read it too fast.*sobs*
Title: Re: My thoughts on the darm ending.
Post by: akimikage on February 09, 2010, 02:26:46 AM
well.. no offense to Mizuki Kawashita-sensei... but... i think she based the ending to the popularity of Nishino... remember that she has that special "A Date with Tsukasa" on the end of some chapters??...

i like Nishino but not as much as Toujou... i remember that Manaka met Nishino just because he was looking for the ichigo pantsu onna...which is Toujou... so i don't understand why Mizuki Kawashita-sensei just shifted the story on the favor of Nishino, while on the earlier chapters... it's clearly running on Toujou's ...

Manaka even said that if only Toujou would confess to him, he wouldn't be so indecisive anymore... but WTH!?! what's with his "sorry" ??...
i understand that he's already with Nishino... and he needs to make her feel safe... but... *deep sigh* just can't help it...
i really thought there was one last hope when Manaka felt relieved when he learned that the guy who was with Toujou was just her little brother...

when Toujou confessed to Manaka... and Manaka said the word "sorry" ... and when Toujou told Manaka that she's finally able to move on... can't help but cry buckets....

*deep sigh* still can't help get teary eyes when i remember the scenes where Toujou wishes to be Manaka's girlfriend ... she even kissed and hugged Manaka secretly to relieve her loneliness *deep sigh*

just really really sad...
Title: Re: My thoughts on the darm ending.

the ending is sad I was expecting manaka to end it up with toujo or satsuki would b alittle better coz' she's daring & horny  ;D. & I didn't really think that Nishino will b d one he chooses at the end because he didn't really want nishino at 1st if she didn't wear strawberry panties & that confession was really bogus.

Anyways I feel relieved that manaka & toujou were cool after what happened in the past & consider themselves friends after that :) so the ending was sad but wasn't completely fucked up as they say + they lived achieving their dream (I dunno bout Satsuki).. & though I really wanted them to be lovers this outcome was really a lesson to me that "I'm not going to that kind of life before my entrance exam to college unless I have all three girls that are the same as Satsuki behaviour" haha although I'd really wanna experience that but but but but .. nevermind  :P

Sad & heartbreaking but look on d bright side Aya don't have to worry bout being hurt by some average looking guy, she's better of with the orange-haired hunk

Haha, yo bros, sorry for the long absence.  Manaka isn't really a pervert, he is rarely dirty minded. His dear friend Satomura is though. A Manaka x Misuzu pairing would be a movie director combo, something like the Wachowski Brothers except they would be a couple cobo instead of a sibling combo. But glad that she found Uchiba. He is much better than Manaka who I feel is the most indecisive and idiotic male lead in Shounen harem manga. He is worse than Keitaro(Love Hina) and Yamato(Suzuka).

Hmm, Am I the only one who believe that Aya's love for Manaka is too strong for her to start a relationship with someone else. Amachi was clearly rejected by Aya in the story. Yeah, I feel that the Manaka's decision for choosing Tsukasa should be expound on more clearly. Everything would be different if the misunderstanding between Aya and Manaka did not occur.

Yeah, I m very curious about what happened during the four year timeskip, especially Aya's feelings towards Manaka.

Oh yeah, are there any gals here? Is there any gals who read ichigo 100%? I am curious about a gal's perspective towards the relationship in the manga.
Umm I think that Aya's love turned into inspiration after she confessed to Manaka & got advice from satsuki-chan to moved on suddenly & that she said that manaka-kun is where she get her inspirational power but she still feel for him during the time she tutored at manaka-kun's house when she kissed her secretly to relieve her feelings to manaka..

Anyways what I wanna know if she still loves manaka until their reunion

& I don't think that manaka is as bad as yamato in suzuka.. Manaka don't do ecchi things to girls even he was tempted by it coz he has respect to them.unlike yamato getting the girl pregnant & grabbing every chance he had wid a girl really ruined his reputation as the male protagonists :P. If that was yamato he'd fu** satsuki without hesitating

Something still bothers me about the ending though

here the wiki says:It is only during the last year in senior high school, when one of the girls confessed to him, that he finally made his decision.
Although it was 3 of them confessed to him.. I was thinking that the most touching confession to me was Toujou but it didn't turned out what I expected it to.

sorry for triple posting I'd like to talk about this series more(can't help thinking bout aya)

I just finished reading this manga.
And as all have known, there is a BIG HOLE inside my heart cause of the unsatisfying ending :(
I think I fell in love with Nishino.
Too bad until now the mangaka hasn't make the 2nd part of Ichigo 100%.
And I did even search the meaning of 'Ichigo'.

I wouldn't call the ending "unsatisfying". Are you sure you read the entire ending? Because the ending I read was a happy ending where Junpei and Nishino reunite after the time skip. I think it was quite a good ending actually, one of my favorite actually.

Well it kinda leaves you unsatisfied if youre a Aya fan coz in the end she didnt end up with anyone unlike most of the other guys, but if your saying you feel unstisfied coz Tsukasa was the final choice and not Aya then you have something wrong with your head, its pretty obvious that Nishino was the final choice all through out the mid-arc with all the flags pretty much pointing at nishinos direction, if Aya suddenly won out of no where then every event that happened with Tsukasa would have been pretty much trash and i would have prolly rage so hard that it would destroy the world and it would also pretty much throw the whole series into the trash like that certain anime where all events and character build up and plot happened to the one girl only for the freaking director to pretty much go stupid and throw it all a way and let the main character end up with his Sister who btw didnt have much plot development whatsoever.

anyway i said my piece.

A bit out of topic, but would that anime be Da Capo?

close but no cigar, nemu had a pretty good chara developement and in a way "Were siblings but not related by blood" youd be pretty damn sure theyd end up in the end, and nemu had as much as character development as Kotori but she was still abit sided as the "Little sister" until the later episodes.

but hands down kotori wins with so many spin off games to the point where they actually get married with junichi

but thats another matter.

anyway the anime is Akane-Iro Somaru saka it was bad at the start but F***ing hell worse at the ending.

if youd like to discuss this more i suggest making a thread for it

-On topic-

well, for me it's quite satisfying as it is, because everyone that read can see, that Manaka will end up going out with Tsukasa. I'm a fan of Aya, actually, and was disappointed at first, lol...

Agree with you. Though Manaka will end with Toujo than Nishino. But it really broke my heart in chapter 163 & I cried too! Although I'm a Boy... Really hope there have Season 2 that Manaka will end up with Toujo.  :'( :'( :'(
