I am looking forward to cameos from the characters from both Suzuka (mom and dad have to show up eventually, unless dad is still competing at the international level and mom is with him, leaving poor Fuuka to live alone, maybe at a familiar dorm/bathhouse owned by her great-aunt?) I expect they will dine at Kirishima's restaurant eventually. I still wonder if Yuzuki is a teacher at their school now or if she is still teaching at the all-girl's school she graduated from...

I'd also like to see Seo tackle a yuri side plot without having it be a joke, like it was in KnIM. There will have to be more characters introduced for that though. Right now there are the three sisters, Fuuka, "track guy", a couple of nameless classmates, and Tama-chan (or "mole girl") who sent him a twitpic at the end of chapter 2. I guess one of his sisters could have a serious yuri relationship and it would be a good side plot. (Him dealing with it, the other sisters accepting/rejecting it, etc...)

But I'll probably just be labeled as a yuri fanboy for suggesting it... Oh... Yeah... I guess I am... LOL


that would be kind of neat. heck, i wonder if yuzuki will die in fuuka if seo does the "WHO WILL NEVER BE SEEN AGAIN/DIE!?!" it's always the ones who are nice and even the ones who guide you.

speaking of yuri, try and read citrus. i highly recommend it.

After just finishing Kimi machi and Suzuka in less than 2 weeks it's going to be interesting to see how I enjoy Fuuka when reading one chapter at a time. I'm terrible at waiting how romance twists work out themselves.

Please, somebody give Seo an anime adaptation real quick so he won't drag this like Kimi no Iru Machi.

Feb 10, 2014 6:29 AM by FlameWingman21

Oh god. Doesn't this guy have an editor to tell him him KNIM was a piece of *beeeep* and that he should take a very long break from writing "romance"?

I still can't believe it had come to an end :-(

First chapter and this girl already looks 10X more detestable than her mother. Not very impressed, both Suzuka and Kimi no Rage had far better first chapters.

Definitely checked it out. Despite kimi going up and down, it got me into manga with all the emotions I felt. The first manga I ever read, and I love suzuka, so must read.

What? I guess another case of haters always scream the loudest.
(never read the manga, but I just find it out that it has a score of over 8, yet there hasn't been a single positive comment so far)

The score often doesn't reflect the series' quality. Most of those scores are due to the early chapters which admittedly were pretty good, but everything later on was filler or forced drama (that lasted <10 chapter at max). In this case 'haters' could be rephrased into 'poor souls who once loved the manga but got raped by Seo's inability as an author'.

...

I really don't want to read another romance manga by this dumbass, but this is shaping up to sound like a Suzuka sequel...

Shit...

Feb 5, 2014 7:14 PM by ChronosXIII

Feb 3, 2014 1:53 PM by Bileth

nop sorry -__-

I'll pass on this... Kimi no Iru Machi tired me out already.

Feb 3, 2014 8:58 AM by MarXHunter

Isn't he tired of doing the same thing over and over again ...

Feb 3, 2014 8:43 AM by TheAwakenHD

Pass, but because I haven't read Suzuka.

Feb 3, 2014 8:27 AM by DGemu

If the author is the same, there'll be similar pattern / characteristic between the author works, and the author 'taste' will be shown in his/her story,imo Seo Kouji have a shitty 'taste'.
I've had enough KnIM shit. and btw from the synopsis, i can tell it wouldnt be much different thatn KnIM.

Feb 3, 2014 8:22 AM by Ravenix

Although KNIM was really terrible, I really look forward to his manga because he is my favorite mangaka and the rest of his works are amazing :D

Even though Kimi no iru machi is really poor lately , I enjoyed following the story (though I can't say I'm a big fan cause i only started reading it 1 year ago).That being said , i'll give this a chance.
