Suki-desu, Suzuki-Kun Chapters 39/40 (and I apologize)

10 Jun

#ME

 

#STORYOFMYLIFE

This is why you don’t let me on the Interwebs, you guys.

Anyway, I apologize for my lack of updating. And for my continuous promises to blog anime and never coming through with it. I blame many things.

I blame my friend for getting me hooked on Arrested Development.

I blame the fact that everything I’ve tried to blog has just not been as appealing as I was hoping… (ESPECIALLY AMNESIA. I never finished because I had no flipping idea what on earth was going on. It was very pretty, though.)

I blame Ikeyamada Go for NOT HAVING ENOUGH SHINOBU. AND FOR DOING MEAN THINGS TO SAYAKA. But we’ll get to that in a moment.

I BLAME GREE VOLTAGE GAMES. Oh my word, you guys. Do any of you play the Gree Voltage games? Be My Princess, My Sweet Bodyguard, and Celebrity Darling. So unfairly addicting…and filled with wonderfully attractive anime men who all fall in love with you.  SO FANTASTIC OH MAN.

Anyway. I apologize and throw cookies to anyone who’s still out there.

The above pic pretty much describes how I’ve felt about Suki-desu for…the past what, five chapters? Ish? And because of that, I’m combining these two chapters. Because I can. And I want to throw in some stuff from chapter 39.

So, let’s get this going, shall we. If any of you are still out there. You guys rock. 🙂

It only took us what...38 CHAPTERS OF ANGST.

 

WELL LET’S JUST GET RIGHT INTO IT, SHALL WE.

Really, my only reaction to this is IT’S ABOUT TIME.

Not in a cheerful HALLEFREAKINLUJAH IT’S ABOUT TIME way, more just like a WE’VE GONE THROUGH 38 CHAPTERS OF ANGSTY DRAMATIC IRONY FINALLY IT’S ABOUT TIME way.

I dunno. It breaks my heart to see Chihiro finally tell Hikaru how she’s felt about him FOR YEARS, but now that I’m completely done shipping these two, I’m just kinda like “eh, this is an important plot point. Move on now, glad we’re past this.”

DRAMATIC LIGHTING.

 

Fuwhaaaaaat? Forgetting about Sayaka that easily? Simply because you have a different, crying, wonderful, vulnerable girl in front of you? You are weak, Hikaru. WEAK.

I think this is just typical guy reaction. Some girl cries in front of you, HUG HER. MAKE HER SHUT UP.

JK, that’s probably just typical manga guy reaction.

REMEMBAH ME?

 

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH JK LOLZ HIKARU WOULD NEVER DO THAT YOU GUYS.

He does actually hug Chihiro and stares at her dramatically for a few pages whilst remembering how many times Chihiro has been there for him in the past. But then, as things are about to get super serious, he remembers Sayaka.

Which I’m totally cool with, by the by. I got over my anti-Sayakaru thing ages ago. They’re adorable now and tragic and are the owners of one of my favorite manga kisses ever.

Anyway, moving on.

HAHAHAH I AM THE QUEEN OF DECEPTION!!! BOW TO ME.

 

Ah, good old Chihiro. Bring more pain upon herself. JUST AS LONG AS HIKARU’S OKAY, WE’RE ALL GOOD, RIGHT?

Gotta admire her at least for thinking up that plan on the spot.

JK SHE'S NOT FINE

Oops, haha, just kidding. Nobody’s that perfect.

I’m okay with this scene, actually. Because this made Hikaru realize that she wasn’t joking, she actually does love him. And he needs to know that. IF HE NEVER KNOWS THAT, WE WILL NEVER GET PAST THIS. AND WE NEED TO GET PAST THIS.

Anyway, again, this also showed that Chihiro is not the perfect creation we all believed her to be for the past FOREVER, she does have chinks in her armor, and she is actually vulnerable.

Moving on.

Awwwwwww

 

Moar crying, yaaaaay!

In case any of you were wondering and you haven’t read the chapter yet, Hikaru apologizes to Chihiro for being weak and decides to fully go after Sayaka. He also thanks Chihiro profoundly for always being his strength.

This, of course, makes Chihiro cry AGAIN and realize that her love wasn’t so fruitless after all if she became his strength.

AWWWWWWWW.

K moving on.

YES. YES YES YES.

 

With that in mind, Hikaru confronts Sayaka and her new creepy boyfriend Takumi and tells her he loves her and always will, and then they have this dramatic wind shot.

YES. FINALLY. SAYAKARU IS BACK. HOW I HAVE MISSED IT!!!

Well, that’s basically chapter 39. WHOLE LOTTA ANGST. That’s really what this entire manga is though, so…nothing new really.

MOVING ON TO THE IMPORTANT CHAPTER (because I say that, you can probably guess what’s a part of it…)

Radically short hair, wooooh!

 

DAZZLING.

 

40 pic 3

 

CHIHIRO CUTS HER HAIR SHORT WOOOOOOOOH!

I feel like this is a common theme in romance manga. Girl gets her heart broken, girl changes her image to move on. Heck, I’ve done it. Best example I can think of now is Hikaru (lol 2 Hikarus by the same author…) in Moe Kare!!. Kind of a cool idea.

Anyway, the last pic is the important one. THIS IS WHAT WE NEEDED GUYS. Because Chihiro finally told Hikaru how she felt, she can FINALLY move on. She can now openly accept Shino-er, another guy…who comes to her…yeah…totally not thinking of someone in particular nope not at all…

So yeah, now that Chihiro realizes this herself, we can all move on with life! Hallelujah!

Oh yeah, and Chihiro’s being all annoying and punishing herself for shattering Shinobu’s heart by saying that she doesn’t deserve a new love. FINE BY ME. YOU JUST STICK WITH AN OLDER ONE. COUGH COUGH SHINOBU COUGH.

…I swear I’ll stop with the short hair Chihiro pics now…I swear…

LOL yus.

 

I expect an entire army of fan art about HikaruXTakumi. Get on it, people.

AWWWWWWW

 

SAYAKARU FLUFF!!!

They’re so cute. Later Sayaka’s all “I definitely won’t fall in love with him!” and I’m all “NOT IF FORESHADOWING HAS ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT IT.”

…GET READY FOR SPAMMING. BECAUSE YES. IT’S FINALLY HERE. OH MY WORD. HALLELUJAH.

Heheheh...

 

So Chihiro’s all sick and goes to get medicine…and who should pass by but the lovable rich jerk himself…

YES. SAVE HER.

 

And you want to pass her until she’s in danger…HAHAHAHAHAHAHAH-I’m sorry…fangirl coming out…

Yes...yes...

 

HAHAHAH. WE CAN ALL SEE WHERE THIS IS GOING.

Here it comes...

 

YES.

 

I tried not to screencap that entire scene…really I did…

BUT FINALLY. YES. FINALLY WE ARE BACK TO CHINOBU. YES YES YES YES YES. FOR RIGHT NOW, ALL IS RIGHT WITH THE WORLD.

I mean, Shinobu still says that he hates her…but I mean…he’s saving her and kissing her (SHUT UP IT TOTALLY COUNTS AS A KISS)…so…we all know that won’t last long…

Oh yeah, and there was this cute little extra chapter that went back to Junior High days:

Awwww

 

Which involved cross-dressing, of course.

It was really adorkable.

Well, I think that’s about it for now. I’m contemplating blogging her newest manga with the long title that I don’t feel like looking up right now…it’s the one with the twin siblings who cross dress as each other and fall in love and stuff.

You know, typical Ikeyamada Go stuff.

As for other close-future stuff…Ima go anime perusing and see if anything absolutely fascinates me.

See y’all hopefully soon!

Suki-desu, Suzuki-Kun! Chapter 33: Sayonara, Hoshino Sayaka :’)

9 Dec

First of all, yes I know, I haven’t been blogging lately.

That’s really nothing new for me though, unfortunately.

I also have a History paper I should be writing now…I’m placing all blame on the Internet…

Anyway, you guys should know this by now: I have spurts where I blog ALL THE FREAKIN’ TIME, and long breaks where I focus on school, watch movies with the fam, play with our various animals, be in shows, etc. But, like always, I hope to become more regular of a blogger 🙂

ANYWAY. TIME FOR WHAT YOU ALL CAME FOR.

THIS IS PROOF OF THE SORROW THAT FILLS THIS CHAPTER. Not really...

THAT’S RIGHT, READERS. IT’S HAPPENED.

THE PLOT TWIST THAT IKEYAMADA GO HAS BEEN DANGLING IN FRONT OF OUR FACES EVERY OTHER CHAPTER HAS FINALLY OCCURRED.

SAYAKA HOSHINO.

HAS MOVED.

And you know what the weirdest part is? Over the past nine chapters when I haven’t been blogging, I’ve actually grown surprisingly attached to Sayaka. Yes, she’s a crybaby, she’s overly sweet and adorable, far too moe, has no personality, and can turn Hikaru into a bloody-nosed pervert with just one wink (I don’t think Sayaka’s actually every winked at Hikaru, and probably never will…but that’s beside the point), but I’m actually gonna miss her. Now that Chinobu is finally official (although, now that Sayaka’s gone, who knows), Hikaru’s gonna be all lonely. I expect the next chapter will be filled with post-Sayaka depressive speeches. Which should be just amazingly uplifting.

Anyway, on to the actual chapter.

MEMORIIIIIIEEEEESSS!

So, when we start off, Sayaka and Hikaru “run” into each other on the rooftop where they first met. Isn’t that adorable?

97.6% of this chapter is over-the-top sickeningly adorable nostalgia, just to make you yearn for Sayaka in future chapters.

It worked.

I want on-cue wind and feathers to make me look gorgeous when I admit my feelings...

So then Sayaka recites the line she was saying when Hikaru first found her, except she adds a tidbit of love at the end. And Hikaru makes us all cry by being all “I will fall in love with her many times NO MATTER WHERE WE ARE” and it’s just adorable…

Awwww, mini-wedding!

This is just plain sweet.

It’s almost like they’re saying “we may never get a real wedding, so…”

It reminds me of the scene from Get Love!! with Miki in a fake veil kissing Sagara while two girls (who happen to see from a window) comment that it looks like a wedding.

Ikeyamada Go is really good at adorable fake wedding scenes that make you love everything around you without understanding why. Or at least that’s what happens to me when I read them.

IT'S FRIENDSHIP, FRIENDSHIP! JUST A PERFECT BLENDSHIP!

And Chihiro and Sayaka have a heartfelt goodbye at the airport.

Another reason I’ll miss Sayaka: Her friendship with Chihiro is just plain cute and fun to read.

This...is really sad...

And then Hikaru gets thanked by Sayaka’s parents and Sayaka’s all like “I have so many friends that I’m leaving behind!”

Seriously. Sayaka’s leaving is going to change the entire genre of this manga.

I was gonna say "nice throw!" but then I was like "Oh yeah he plays basketball...duh..."

Could this get any more sterotypically adorable?

I submit that it cannot.

I will bet anything the other people in the airport are sitting around with popcorn watching this.

Again with that on-cue wind...

D’aww…isn’t that sweet? In a weird almost-mood-ruiner kind of way…

I'm actually speechles...for once...

This has become one of my favorite manga pictures. Ever.

It’s gorgeous, and says so much in a single picture. It portrays every feeling these two have about each other, and it’s such a powerful representation.

Maybe I’m reading into it too much. Either way, it’s pretty to look at.

Aw, Hikaru looks like a kicked puppy...

Ya know, of all the expressions Hikaru has had in all 33 chapters, I like this one the best.

It’s like he’s watching his entire life walk away from him, and he knows it would be okay to cry but he’s not going to.

It’s strangely mature, in its own way.

CLIFFFFFHANGER.

BA DUN. DUN. DUUUUUUUUUUUUUNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!

So, where does the manga go from here?

Typically, at least from the romance mangas I’ve read, when a major role of the story leaves, the story either ends (I’m still in pieces about Hakuron’s death. Spoiler alert, by the way. Though I feel like we all could have easily seen that coming…There could be no happy ending for Kurumi and Hakuron) or turns really sour really fast.

Because of that, I feel like the manga can’t continue like it has been, slowly progressing from 13 to 14 to 15 years. That was easy when the relationships were being built up between our main 4, but one of the main-est four has just moved a bajillion miles away. I think if the manga did drudgingly (totally a word) continue on through 15, 16, and 17, we would all get bored pretty fast. The majority of it all would be, again, post-Sayaka depressive speeches from Hikaru and probably everyone else for that matter. Which would get really old, really fast. Could we survive 33 more chapters of that? If it was heavily, and I mean HEAVILY, laced with Chinobu, maybe I could. But again, I’ve grown attached to Sayaka and admittedly, I’m gonna miss her.

That is why I think that we should just fastforward through to 17, as I think that’s when the preview thing said they would meet again. Maybe like, a few little images of the years leading up to that, and then BAM. We see all the characters in all their matured teenage glory Ikeyamada Go has been teasing us with occasionally. Then we can go from there.

To be honest, though, I can see it going both ways. Maybe we’ll get some weird switch-up where Hikaru finally goes after Chihiro and then Shinobu ends up with Sayaka out of jealousy. Or for no reason at all.

I can never predict anything with Ikeyamada Go stories. Except maybe who the main couple will eventually be. Even that’s questionable, though, because I was convinced it was going to be Takara and not Arata who got the girl, though I was with Arata since the beginning. More spoiler alert, by the by. I suck at warnings for those. I just assume everyone’s read and seen what I have and if not, they should just deal with it.

ANYWAY. I’m gonna go write that History paper now. Then I might write another blog post about how I haven’t been up to date with anime lately…eh…gotta finish that paper first ^^;

TTFN! (Ta ta for now, for you folks uneducated in the way of high-end text speak)
