Suzuka 166 Suzuka

Suzuka 166 涼風 すずか


Cover page: Suzuka in her wedding gown with caption "I may be hopeless, but I love you with all my heart. I love you now and forever. "

It was Yamato and Suzuka's wedding day. Mrs Akitsuki told Yamato to tighten his tie. Yasonobu remarked that he couldn't believe that Yamato and Suzuka have been registered for a year. He commented that Yamato must have work very hard in saving the money for the wedding. Yamato replied that they couldn't afford a wedding reception but he wanted Suzuka to experience the wedding at least. Suzuka came into the waiting room in her wedding gown and Yamato was stunned. Everybody commented that Suzuka looked beautiful. Suzuka thanked them. Miki remarked that Yamato could have fallen in love with her again. Yamato agreed. Yasonobu teased Yamato that he had matured since he was able to express such embarassing word without hesitation.

Mrs. Akitsuki came in holding Fuuka and told them that it's almost the time for the ceremony. The baby Fuuka was crying and Yamato went to carry her. Yamato apologized saying that Fuuka must be heavy and his mother had to carry her. Mrs. Akitsuki replied that Fuuka was just scared because there were so many people whom she was not familiar with. Yasonobu saw the baby and asked what her name. They replied that it's Fuuka 風夏(ふうか), made up of the kanji summer and breeze. Miki teased that it was good that she looked like Suzuka instead of Yamato. Yamato rebuked by saying that Fuuka eyes lokked like his. Suzuka commented that Yamato had hoped for a boy initially but he was always by her side ever since she was born. Miki called it loving idiot. Yamato replied that he had to protect Fuuka and make sure that she felt safe. Miki commented that Fuuka was really cute and she also wanted to have a baby. Yasonobu teased asking Miki if he can be of any help. Miki remarked that Yasonobu has not changed at all unlike Yamato.

Mr. Asahina came in and asked them hurry up. He saw Fuuka and asked Yamato to follow him as he has something to talk to Yamato. Yamato told Suzuka to go first and he'd follow soon. They went outside and Yamato asked Mr. Asahina what he wanted to talk about. Mr. Asahina complimented him by saying that he had done well. Mr. Asahina continued that Yamato had been working very hard. He had excepted Yamato to come to him pleading for help but Yamato didn't. Yamato apologized. Mr. Asahina asked why Yamato apologized. Yamato replied that he thought he understood Mr. Asahina's feeling as a father a year ago. But after having a baby of his own, he realized that Fuuka was so precious to him and he fully understood Mr. Asahina's hopes for Suzuka and how hard it must have been because of him. Mr. Asahina replied that he was looking forward to Suzuka's future and expected a lot from her. He then added that he really wanted to punch the 18 year old kid who stole his daugther and the hopes that accompanied her. Yamato was bit stunned. Mr. Asahina continued that it might be because of his ego as a parent. He said that it was something Suzuka has decided and accepted. He did not want to interfere and he wished her to be happy whatever she had chosen. Mr. Asahina then told Yamato that Yamato had fulfilled Suzuka's wish. He added that he can see that from Suzuka's expression and he wanted to thank Yamato for it. Mr. Asahina smiled and told Yamato that he could entrust Suzuka to him. Yamato nodded as a token of gratitude. Mr. Asahina patted on him and told him to be confident as Suzuka will be watching him. He told Yamato to take care of Suzuka and Fuuka. Yamato replied that he will do his best.

Outside the church, accompanied by her dad, Suzuka asked Mr. Asahina about his conversation with Yamato. She commented that Yamato looked tense. Mr. Asahina replied that it was just a talk between two man and asked her not to be concerned. Suzuka wondered what they have been talking about. The church door opened and Suzuka was led into the church by her father. The wedding took place and Yamato placed the ring onto Suzuka's finger. Yamato and Suzuka kissed. Later, they came out of the church and Suzuka threw the bouquet. Honoka caught the bouquet. Yasonobu remarked that Honoka's would be next and told her to invite him. Yui said she's jealous and asked Honoka to invite her too. Miho heard it and said that she wanted as well.

Standing beside Yamato, Suzuka thanked Yamato. Yamato was puzzled. Suzuka said that she was still her oldself and had been selfish as well as causing so many problems for Yamato. Yet Yamato had never gave up on her and courted her. Thus, she was very happy. Yamato smiled and asked why she's saying that. Suzuka told Yamato that it's her turn to chase after him. Yamato was clueless. Suzuka explained that she couldn't live without him. Yamato was stunned and asked why she said that out of sudden. Suzuka replied that she just thought and felt that way at the time. They were interrupted and asked to take photographs. Ayano san took a picture of Yamato and Suzuka with their friends; Kinugasa, Miyamoto, Saki, Honoka, Yui, Yasonobu, Miki, Tsuyoshi, Miho and Kobayakawa.

The following day, back at home, Suzuka told Yamato to stop watching the television and leave for work. Yamato apologized and told her about Arima and Kobayakawa who appeared on the news as representatives of Japan in the 100m and 200m events. Suzuka adjusted Yamato's tie and told him that he need to focus more on his work. She asked Kinugasa sempai would scold him again if he lost his focus. Kinugasa sempai has also conveyed that he's waiting for Yamato to participate in the next competition. Yamato took his bag and bid farewell by saying Suzu..suzuka. Suzuka held Fuuka and teased him for being shy when calling her Suzuka (Yamato has always called her Asahina). She used Fuuka to tease Yamato and called him a strange papa.

Yamato was silent for a moment and Suzuka asked about it. Yamato asked Suzuka if she wont give her a goodbye kiss. Suzuka pinched Yamato's face. Yamato remarked on what she had said yesterday but Suzuka acted as she couldn't recall it. Yamato then said nevermind and remarked that he'll have a goodbye kiss from Fuuka. He drew his face near Fuuka and Fuuka grabbed and pulled Yamato's lips. Suzuka told Fuuka to stop as she was hurting her papa. Miho called from outside. Suzuka commented to Fuuka that her auntie was calling. Yamato commented that Miho might be angry if she was being called an auntie.

Yamato then started leaving and Suzuka said that she'll walk him downstairs.Miho told Yamato to hurry as it was 8am already. Saotome shouted goodbye darling to tease Yamato. Ayano san told them to take care. Suzuka shouted to Yamato telling him to give his best. Yamato replied her telling her to leave everything to him.

Message from Kouji: If you stand still, nothing would change. But if you take a step foward now, even a little step, the atmosphere might change and something good will happen.

Caption: We don't know if Yamato and Suzuka are planning for a second child but Kouji sensei next work will be revealed in Spring.

P/S: I was right in the first place, even though I retracted the statement before, there's a wedding. Fuuka is so cute! Just like Suzuka. Anyway, Suzuka has ended. I'll write an aftermath post for Suzuka manga soon. Finally, my blogging on Suzuka has ended, 71 posts since chapter 96.

Random Thoughts

Mood: Happy

Suzuka 165: Dialogue between Suzuka and Yamato. Suzuka and Yamato lived as a couple. Yamato proposed to Suzuka with his lame style. Yamato brought her to their school gym and reminisced their past. Chapter ended with Suzuka and Yamato determined to be a happy couple with their child. Next week Suzuka finale!! There'll be colour pages!
Air Gear 177: Battle against Sirius continued. Ikki got the first point. Come on, move on!
Cross Game 96: That's it Adachi, we want action. And we got it. Koh against Mishima. Two good ones and a bad one. Mishima hit the fourth one and Koh captured it instantly. Cool!
Prince of Tennis 358: Akaya entered demon stance and aimed at Inui. Inui collapsed. Looks like Seishun lost the 2nd match as well.
Tsubasa 166: Shaoran lost his freedom, Sakura lost her memory, Yuu lost his eyes and now Kurogane lost his arm (whole arm!) in order to save Yuu. Curse you, Fei Wong Reed.

Romeo x Juliet 22: Montague is dead. Yeah.
Zero no Tsukaima II 10 : Not really interesting. Encouter with an army of Albion and clash in Louise & Saito's idealogy.
Moetan 10: Ah kun, ka kun, Na kun, Sumi and Ink went to save Alice. Alice restored to her adult form and was held captive. The enemy was evil Alice. The reason why Alice hated Ah Kun was because Ah kun loved loli and he got carried away during their date and said that she has over-sized breast. Dandy turned out to be the King of magical kingdom. Ah Kun returned to his ownself and attacked the evil Alice but she turned into a huge beast. Ink and Sumi combined their powers and turned Ah Kun into a giant duck. Super size Ah Kun defeated the enemy. A sentimental moment for Alice embracing Ah kun. However, Ah Kun saw Na Kun true self and got carried away. It looks like the final episode but it's not.

Placed a pre-order for 3 clear action base. I'm not pleased with the MG Strike Freedom stand and have wanted to get a white action base but it was on backordered. I like the clear base and have pre-ordered for my 3 MGs. I spent a big purchase this week. AUD$599 can buy you around 10 figures (1/8) or 10 MG Gundams or 15 OSTs or 25 DVDs or 120 mangas. And I spent it on a set of suit(with two trousers). My sister's wedding coming up, that's why.
