In the anime, she never actually realized that she loved Ikuto. And in the last episode of Party, he says they'll never see each other again, so we can guess that she wound up with Tadase.
In the manga, Ikuto came back, and she DID realize that she loved him, and it went more in-depth about a future relationship throughout the whole series, more so than the anime did. So we can guess that she wound up with Ikuto.
So its safe to say that she somehow wound up with both, and it all depends on who you're asking. A Tadamu fan could say Tadase, and an Amuto fan could just as easily say Ikuto.
Since the manga is the real thing with the original story,I would say that she ends up with Ikuto :P
She realises that she loves Ikuto, and the ending(and the rest of the story) is Amuto all the way!
The last season of the anime ruined the whole series,and it has nothing to do with the original story! Amu doesn't even realise she loves Ikuto,and it's a kind of Tadamu ending...
I would rather say that the 3rd season doesn't count in the series,and would prefer the anime end with the doki ending.
I think Tadase because at first Ikuto was just useing Amu to find the Embryo and stole the Humpty Key from Tadase's family. Also Amu seems to like Tadase a lot more and treat Ikuto more like a little brother.
lol, isn't it obviouse? :-) First of all, the manga is the "real" story, and she ends up with Ikuto. Her thing with Tadase, is like the normal/usuall teenage crush. With Ikuto there's a real thing. But she ends up with Tadase first (Talking about the anime), untill she gets older. At least that's what I think. Ikuto does say: "hurry and gropw up".. because she's still just a child. So when she's and adult, I think they will get back together.
The anime is shorter than the manga. In the manga, you go fouther into the future, while in the anime you dont, so that you can decide who wins her heart. In the anime it doesnt clearly say who she ends up, cause Ikuto said she should grow up. At that time, Amu is still so young, and not ready for such a serious relashionship that Ikuto wants. But when she is grown up, I think they'll end up together. Thats anyways the real ending in the manga. The ones who says she'll end up with Tadase, aren't looking further than their noses. That love, is a normal teenage crush which everyone goes through.
And by the way.. you can hear her heart beat when she and ikuto are close, but you cant even here it a single time with tadase.
In the Beginning Amu likes Tadase but he rejects her.. in the Manga Amu relizes he loves Ikuto.. well Tadase confessed that he likes the Amulet heart but confessed in the end that he falls inlove with Amu so Amu loved him back since he really loved tadase in the start.. meanwhile Ikuto was using Amu to find the Embryo.. but they end up loving each other.. so i would say Amu ends up with both of them or nobody since she loved Tadase and Ikuto..OR MAYBE Amu ends up with Kairi ahaha! he was the first one to confess to Amu truly! :)
These are the facts first:
Amu's main love interests are Tadase Hotori. Throughout the first half of the series, Amu had a crush on Tadase and blushed everytime she was in his presence. She initially regarded Ikuto as a jerk and pervert, but she grew close to him as he aided her countless times. When Ikuto first confesses his love to her, she thinks he is teasing her and dismisses it. When Tadase asks Amu if it is okay for him to fall in love with her, she is thrilled at the progress in their relationship but soon finds herself drawn to Ikuto. She was saddened when Ikuto decided to leave in search of his father. Because of this, she realizes that she truly loves Ikuto. After he confesses to her and kisses her close to the lips, she refuses to admit her feelings for him, which prompts Ikuto to make a deal with her that he will get her to fall in love with him. In chapter 48, Amu confesses to Tsukasa that she had liked Tadase for his outer character and truly loves Ikuto for his his inner turtle. Although they have a much better relationship than before, Amu remains stubborn about her feelings for him. In the final chapter of Shugo Chara Encore.(Wikipidea)
she ends up with both of them
this is Ikuto's facts
she is happy to reunite with him and is seen holding hands with him at Sanjou and Nikaidou's wedding, hinting they are a couple. Amu's primary rival is Utau Hoshina, Ikuto's younger sister who is jealous that Ikuto shows an interest in Amu instead of her. They soon become good friends after Utau leaves Easter.(Wikipidea)
In Tadase's fact
Amu confesses to Tsukasa that she had liked Tadase for his outer character
so She likes Tadase
and to Ikuto she hides her feelings
I'd really say that i think she ends up with Tadase
since she remains stubborn to her feeling with Ikuto
and treats Ikuto like her brother.. so that then
really she ends up with Tadase
Let's see In the NEXT SEASON!
were she was in middle school
and there it will be revealed
I'm sure if she picks Ikuto
Tadase would understand Kbye
I created an account just to answer this, so could you please read? ^_^
(English is not my native language, sorry if you found misspellings or other types of mistakes).
One thing is true: Amu's "first love" was Tadase. But, in my opinion, it was just a crush, not real love. In the manga, Amu confessed to Tsukasa that she had liked Tadase for his outer character - It means she don't like the real Tadase, his real character. And she said that truly loves Ikuto (just like HinamoriAmu1 said).
In the manga, Amu (clearly) ends up with Ikuto.. Yeah - Amuto Forever!! ♥
And, in the anime, Amu doesn't end up with Tadase! In the last episode of Party, he says he will never return to Japan again.. but Ikuto also said "Hurry and grow up.". In my opinion, it means "Hurry and grow up, because now you're too young for me - but I'm going to return, just because of you"!!
And since the manga is the original story, I'm sure that Amu ends up with Ikuto. And just like sailor_spade15 said, "when she travels through time she meets the future tadase, and he says he hasnt seen her in so long, which kinda implies they dont get together"...
Weeell.....That's never proven xD But in the Anime it looks like she ends up with Tadase! (YAAAAAAAAAAAY!!!!!) Because in the last episode Tadase kissed Amu on her cheek and says that he always be by her side. After that there hadn't came any TadAmu nor Amuto moment so you can say that she ends up with Tadase, but it's all up to you to choose what you believe.
Okay, to start off, let's begin with character: Tadase was a little boy who got pushed around and was a crybaby so he wanted to rule the world. Ikuto has a troubled past and wants to be somewhat like a stray cat. For me, Tadase is evil. If, per say, Tadase wanted to be a great king, than his guardian would be less... Tyranty... And when he character changes, he is well, evil. But this is a big mistake, because it shows that Tadases character wants to be a kind, strong King, so, if he REALLY wanted to be that, his character change wouldn't be all that different, but it IS so to sum it up, Tadase is either very very evil, or, he is an underdeveloped character with no thought put in except to be Amus crush.
Ikuto, on the other hand, has flaws too, but his character is very well developed, he has a story, a reason, a meaning, and is well thought out. He can be connected to more easily, and actually risks his life for Amu a few times. While Tadase is in the corner all like "HINAMORI AMU SAN" this and "HINAMORI AMU SAN" that, honestly, I'd say it makes up 60% percent of his dialogue- wait, I'm off topic. Any way, Ikuto shows signs of trusting Amu with his life, and protecting hers with his, he doesn't just have a little crush, he has something deeper. And if the creator of Shugo Chara puts less thought into one love interest than another it's obvious which one it will be. Also, Ikuto and Amu are not "enemies" Ikuto HAS to work for Easter but if he had a choice, he would be with the good people. All you Tadase fans out there, really ponder it. WHAT GOOD THINGS HAS TADASE EVER DONE. HE USES HOLY CROWN TO PROTECT HIMSELF AND AMU. IKUTO PROTECTS AMU AT THE RISK OF HIS LIFE. TADASE IS EVIL I MEAN TYRANT EVIL. IKUTO IS NOT EVIL. TADASE DOES NOTHING BUT SIT IN THE CORNER YELLING "HINAMORI AMU SAN" "HINAMORI AMU SAN" AND AMU ONLY LIKES HIM BECAUSE HE LOOKS LIKE A MOTHERFLUFFIN GIRL THAT SHE CAN RELATE TO. IF HE LOOKED UGLY, I CAN GUARANTEE THAT THERE WOULD BE NO TADASE FANS, NOT TO MENTION. HAS AMU EVER SAID: Tadases dream is inspiring, I like how sweet and thoughful he is, he is always there for me, risking his life for me, his dream to become king of the world is not evil, it so wonderful, and I love him for that. NO SHE ONLY LIKES HIM BECAUSE OF HIS LOOKS!!! AND HE ONLY LIKES HER BECAUSE OF ONE PART OF HER!!! HER AMULET HEART TRANSFORMATION. yes, I know, he confessed his love for her on White Day, but even then he said "I realize now, that amulet heart is part of you" so he only likes her due to amulet heart being part of her. Wow, did I go off topic. Anyway, this is my opinion, and I respect yours, but seriously think about what I have said.
I won't be Tadase. In the manga, it is clear that Amu ends up with Ikuto. I don't know why the heck those people making the anime made her with Tadase.
Also, Amu just loved Tadase's look but she aren't for his 'king dream'. However, she is touched by Ikuto by heart.
By the way, Tadase really looks like a girl rather than a boy! But Ikuto is mature.
So, the answer is: Ikuto
Amu can't decide who she likes best, she knows she likes Ikuto, and Tadese but she doesn't want to admit she likes Ikuto as he is always saying how they are enemys... In the beggining she ONLY likes Tadese, then in comes Ikuto, and then she begins to wonder about Kukai, so it isn't exactly known wether she winds up with Ikuto or Tadese, all I know is that she won't admit she likes Ikuto and also really likes Tadese...
Anyway, that is just what I think, you dudes could have a completely different idea!!
well,at the manga if you see there are two mangas for shugo chara shugo chara and shugo chara encore press the encore version and read what happens.you might not understand if you don't read the normall shugo chara yet but i think she ends up with ikuto YAY :)
Ikuto...its pretty obvious cuz' in the manga she said that she only liked Tadase because of his prince-like appearance and that Ikuto somehow came to her heart therefore Ikuto is the one who she'll end up with...one more thing, in the end of Shugo Chara Encore,amu said "One day,it'll all work out...as long as I keep holding tight to that hand(Ikuto's hand)"...trust the MANGA...its the ORIGINAL thing ;)
SO FAR, she hasnt officially chosen anyone but my heart lies with ikuto <3333333333333333333 btw question- in the episode where they went to the broadcast tower to save ikuto, why didnt amu character transform with ran and just fly to the top?.. haha sorry but it has been boggling my mind...
This question has raised a lot of...er...comments. I think in the manga she ended up with Ikuto. The anime is leaning toward Tadase right now but rumor is that there is a new season coming based off Shugo Chara Encore which means mostly likely an Amuto ending, IF this season ever comes out. The reason why Shugo Chara Party ended is there weren't enough viewers my guess is the cosplay girls, Pucchi Pucchi, and since there was few Ikuto scenes and lots of Tadase ones and the majority of viewers are Amuto so they don't want to see Tadase and Tadamu scenes. Hope this helps. :)
I think amu will really love ikato . I can tell this because at the last episode amu's Amulet future shows her with wearing a wedding dress and ikato is also here and he owns the Lumpty key, the patner of Dumpty lock . And amu and ikato stay together for some days . I think amu has a secret love with ikato .She is more happy and shy when she stays with him . So i think at last ikato will come back from Paris and they will marry like the Amulet future .
It really wasn't specific in the anime. Ikuto said he needed to confess something then kissed her and left. In party he returned to see her again but nothing really happened oh but Tadase kissed her. But so did Ikuto so basicly she didnt wound up with anyone in the anime.
In the manga Ikuto comes back and then she knows that she loves him and they will have a future relationship so Ikuto FTW XD
well one they need to finish making the anime any ways but i think it should be ikuto they been through a lot together... dont get me wrong her and tadase would be cute together but her and ikuto are better together and i agree with the person who posted the page when shes in the future i guess and tadase says its been awhile i mean its like a dead ringer right there that her and ikuto end up together
In the manga she ended up with Ikuto! But in the anime... it wasnt really clear. Obviously Ikuto loved her and she had feelings for him as well. But when he left, he said he would never come back to Japan. And Tadase promised to always be with Amu forever... And even kissed her on the cheek. But remember the Egg Book? The one that tells the story of a child's egg? Well Im guessing the author wanted it to be like that, there was no ending. You had to make your own. So its really your choice. Did Ikuto actually come back and get together with Amu? Or did Tadase win Amu's heart completely? You chose!
to me i think Amu should go with ikuto i know Amu knew Tadase longer but she is not that shy around Ikuto than Tadase but in the episode she looks like she loves Tadase more and i can understand that but i am still upset plz Amu go with Ikuto
well my anwser is just my opinion. but tadase kinda gets me mad. i dont know if its just me but tadase seems to push his feelings more onto amu in the second season. but would deffinitly be a better boyfriend seeing how he can actually understand how she feels as for tadase only cheers her on. plus amu can be her self around ikuto xD
In the anime, it doesn't really tell us if she ends up with Ikuto or tadase but it's leaning more towards tadase.
In the manga, Shugo Chara encore chapter 4, when Ikuto comes back Amu realizes that he is her future (at the wedding it says so, while she is holding his hand.) In my opinion, I think Ikuto and Amu are better off together because she is more open around Ikuto and also there are a lot more scenes with them together. Also she let's him stay at her house. Whit tadase, she is more shy around him and not as open. So in my own opinion, it should be Ikuto and Amu.
In manga, she end up with Ikuto. (dammit!)
In anime, she didn't end up with anyone. She just.. Got a kiss from Tadase! XD But I think she did end up with Tadase.
You see, I love Tadase and I'm happy to saw he kissed Amu, since I love Tadamu too.. And I really care about Tadase since I don't have any little brother (Yes I consider him as my brother, that's why my name is Aori Hotori)
Honestly i just decided to stop watching the anime and not read the manga because the way things were goin where how all animes with endings that sucked went and it just pissed me off. personally though im amuto all the way.
I think Amuto lovers say that Amu just loves Tadase on the outside but in the end, I think in the last season well guess because she does not see Ikuto anymore but so she will never see Ikuto ends up with Tadase. It is hard to say in front of Amuto fans but guess it's true.
She doesn't end up with anyone in the anime or the manga. But it seems like people (i'm one of them) want amu to end up with ikuto, proven by the number of Amuto fanfictions on many websites. Though some people still decide to pair with Tadase.
Im pretty sure she ends up with ikuto because in vol 11 of the manga older tadase sees her and says "we meet again Amu-chan." wich implies that she hasn't seen her in a while so the obviously didn't get married so she ended up with ikuto
I think Amu should end up with Ikuto because more things happen between them, than with her and Tadase. Because Ikuto stayed at her house, protected her, always caught her when she fell, and he hugged her a lot and was close to her face with his face.
basicallialy, ill go wit ikuto because in da one of da episodes she said dat he understands her and stuff like dat and she feel more comfortable when he is around dats y i pick amu and ikuto togther!!!!!!!1
In Anime - She end up with Tadase because Ikuto leave.
In Manga - She didn't choose but in that chapter Ikuto confess to her again.
and also the real owner of dumpty key is Tadase but he lost it when he was young
- Amu is too young for Ikuto
but most of the people say that Amuto is the best that's right because in anime/manga they have many moments but Amu really end up with Tadase because Tadase is always with her and also watch the shugo chara episode 127 to see
Well I just want to say that Ikuto didn't steal the lock from the Hotori family because it originally belonged to Aruto Tsukiyomi who gave it to Tadase's dad to take care of it then he gave it to Tadase but it is rightfully Ikuto's and Amu has the lock cause it was given to her she is also the rightful owner of the lock. In the anime Ikuto and Amu are destined to be together cause of the lock and the key which match each other. And without the lock and key then they won't have transformed into Seven Seas Treasure and Amulet Fortune. Also Ikuto was not using Amu he was forced into finding the Embryo and did not use her at all.
Any one who say tadase sux will die because he is so hot but ikuto, I just hate him he sux he is trying to be better than tadase.
I you like anyone it has to be tadase because he is nice and not a pervert like ikuto😑
I think its tadase....... because ikuto is using amu to get the embryo and few days pass in shugo chara i realise that ikuto is good but ikuto Hurt tadase........ so i think it is Tadase because in the park where ikuto destroy the eggs amu said I hate you ! I hate you! to ikuto theb ub 127 episode at the carnival or something when amu see tadase amu was worried that tadase will get hurt so she said Tadase blablablalblalbllaba then there Tadase is kissing amu in her cheek....... and by the way when tadase goes to amu's room where ikuto is hiding in the closet and tadase and amu is sitting at amu's bed amu said in her mind My beloved prince is at my room *o* then when tadase confess and amu said in fact... im happy .... :)
I think that the creators wanted to leave the ending to the viewers, but personally I don't understand how an elementary school student could have a working relationship with a high schooler that's, what? Seventeen? I mean I like ikuto, but for Amu I think Tadase is a better choice. Can someone explain to me why you voted for amuto? I can't come up with a reason.
In the manga its clear she love Ikuto and he did say he loved her , but they never actually get together . Its up to the reader to figure out . Personally I think one day she will meet up with him in the future . She doesn't end up with Tadase . In the manga she admits she doe not want to be with him . So you can rule him out . The only opinion is she never sees Ikuto and again or she finds him again .
I beleive it is Ikuto eventhough Tadase-kun confesses to Amu-chan (please notice not Amulet Heart) They do go on dates and they have been chosen the best couples but later on she is nearer to Ikuto than to Tadase
i think that the fans for themselves decide if she is with ikuto or tadase that is just like the anime is made i perfer thinking that is ikuto beacause he promised to come back and in manga they were together
Such Amuto Fans say that it was cruel of Tadase to reject Amu in front of the whole school, don't worry I think it was too... but that was before Tadase ever liked Amu, I mean don't you tell me that 2 persons who just met on the first day of school suddenly says "Hey! I like you! Wanna go out with me?" That's so dumb! And it's so obvious that Amu fell in love with Tadase first! Remember the episode when Tadase figured out that Ikuto was in Amu's room the whole time when he confessed to Amu how he feels (the 2nd time) He was so crushed, so jealous and so embarrassed!! Why did Ikuto have to be there on that special day for Amu?? And I know that probably you Amuto fans would say "Age doesn't matter! What only matters is that Amu and Ikuto love each other!" or even "Cause Ikuto is hawt!" I don't care! Tadase is real kind and sweet! Like when he said that if Ikuto ever likes her, and if she ever likes him back... he would support her... all he cares about is making Amu happy! And where is Ikuto on those days Amu every needs him most, huh?? I know that he was finding his dad, but there's also COMMUNICATION!!! If Tadase never requested Amu to become a guardian, she wouldn't be this powerful!!
Tadase as he is kind and friendly.he is also the first boy amu loves and cares for.ikuto is just getting in between the both of them just to make them fight with each other only.Amu and Tadase deaserves Each other instead of Amu beaing with Ikuto.Ikuto is just 1 mean guy that wants the embryo and wish for Amu to be with him forever and he does not care what happens to utau. he is heartless and PLS DON"T MAKE ANYMORE GROUPS ABOUT AMUTO THAT GROUPS SUCKS! (If i can continue the show with my good drawing skills,i'll continue i promise but the story suddenly ikuto fall in love with utau and never wanted amu done no more ikuto here ikuto there and ikuto fans u guys really like his dick only u guys want to do s3x with him only and u guys want to sleep in the same bed with him. i am not dumb
To be honest i feel like amu shouldn't go with anyone if she chooses tadase she might be the luckiest woman. loving 2 men can be a problem. anyway amu should deserve none of them. if she had to choose one she should choose tadase. he's way more mature.
Well, trying to sum it up..
Amu's love for Tadase were a puppy love, the kind where you try to look your best.
Amu weren't in love with Ikuto from the start, there for, she could yell at him, she could be her honest true self, not acting all sweet. There for her love for him could be deeper, because she felt at ease not having to pretend to be some one..
While Tadase after turning her down, started to be interested when her feelings for Ikuto started to develop. But Tadase were mainly interested in one of the persons she could be,(with Ran) the happy go lucky girl, he admired the kind of person she were with that, so it weren't really love at then, but he slowly starts to feel 'love' for the real Amu, which also Ikuto had started to, there for telling her to grow up faster, so that she would bee in a more suitable age and understand his feelings towards her.
I'm following the manga, which came first, and didn't remove or add characters and stuff..'' (just so you know)
Amu had many moments with Ikuto, I don't remember if they all where there in the anime but like.. link
where he tells her he likes her, but since she believes he's just joking she doesn't take him serious, like when Tadase did it.
And there's more scenes like when Ikuto leaves and kisses her, telling her something like,
"I'll definitely make you fall in love with me, so prepare yourself"
Which were a bold move to make, but effective. link <- picture
but well that's a lot of 'moments' but they're aren't the one showing the truth..
it's Tadase himself, when he's in his older version,saying he haven't seen Amu in a long time...
Because Tadase let's Ikuto and Amu be a pair instead of fighting with them about it, since he loves both Amu and Ikuto (as a brother) and realizes that Amu already loves some one else now..
Thou Amu being the easily embarrassed girl she is, blushes a lot no mater if she's interested in a guy or if he just talks to her.. hehe
when the teacher gets married, it seems like there is a tie, but actually Ikuto already won Amu over, or more exactly.. Amu were the one winning Ikuto over.. =w='
but he's the one she cries for, the one she's hiding even if the others doesn't like him, because she cares about him.. and do just more than care.. TwT'
And Utau stops chasing Ikuto too, after she and Kukai get's together, and.. Nageshi..ko...? Ugh... what now what's his name x'D ended up with Rima (very cute together I think)
and the samurai guy and Ya..Yu..Yaya? the baby girl? x'D
But well, that's how the story goes, but ofcourse people can look the other way when they like other pairs.. but that's how the manga ended :'/
Amu ends up with Ikuto. In the manga, Amu realises that she never really liked Tadase for himself, but for his outer character when she didn't really know him. Then later in Shugo Chara Encore, Nikaido and Sanjo get married, and in that scene, Amu thinks about her future with Ikuto and hopes she gets married to him. Then it zooms out to the crowd around Amu and shows Ikuto and Amu from the future. Future Amu tries to walk up to Present Amu, but Future Ikuto stops her and says "Shh.." They're married in the future.
You guys know when Amu was in the star zone, and she met the older Tadasa. When they both got separated Kiseki found Tadasa and said you've been jumping around in the star zone all day!
Kiseki said tat's right but I was able to see you again Kiseki and that girl from back then too.
That ment in the future they will not be together.
He also said he finally knew what his father ment when (feelngs) he gave Aruto and Souko the key ..now even I understand..
The to people how has the key and the lock will be together.
In the anime it was never specified given the last episode of Shugo Chara Party though it looks as if they were leaning towards Tadase. This however varied from the original story line because in the manga (the real thing) she definitely ended up with Ikuto, she realized she loved him and at the end chapter of Encore they are seen holding hands. I also personally like Ikuto allot more than Tadase as Tadase doesn't seem to care about Amu's feelings at all. Tadase likes someone that she is not and he hurt her so many times unlike Amuto who actually care about each other and like each other for who they are on the inside. Ikuto is also the only one who Amu can fully be her true self around. Amu also finds Tadase's true self really freaky. The fact that the anime and manga ended differently proves that the creators of the anime simply preferred Tadase and they actually left out parts of the story line that were Amuto in a desperate bid to try and make Tadase more favorable. It didn't work though :P.
At the end of Shugo chara the anime, it suggests that she is with Tadase and also shows that Ikuto is in love with Amu yet Amu in confused and is trying to work out her feelings about her relationship with Ikuto. So in a way she ends up with no one, to our knowledge. In the manga it is even harder to know who she ends up with. When she meets the Older Tadase ( not knowing who he is though) Older Tadase says to Amu," I Can't Believe My Eyes, We Meet again, Amu-chan." and when the Older Tadase is talking to Kiseki he refers to Amu as "That Girl from back then." For Ikuto it is much the same, for one he is travelling around the world with the concurs, and when Amu sees Ikuto (whilst travelling on the road of stars though the time rifted). she sees Ikuto and says to the older Tadase, "Right now I'm happy to have seen Ikuto. But I get the feeling that I shouldn't see him Again." But in saying that at Nikaidou and Sanjo's wedding, both Ikuto and Tadase catch Amu when she falls after finding out that Nadeshiko is actually Nagihiko, both Ikuto and Tadase catch her from falling then fight about who should let go of her first. As this is the last page of the last chapter in shugo chara. It allows you to decide who Amu ends up with.
to comment on x-Yumi-x3 comment, the last page of the anime is not Amu and Ikuto in the future, it's still the same wedding, Ikuto's mum was standing near, then Aruto, Ikuto's father shows up. They look happy. so basically the manga doesn't say thay Ikuto and Amu will also be together in the future. The whole story is about making up your very own ending(that lameass picturebook that ended with a blank page), sure it sucks and makes for a terrible ending since there is none however this is rather rare; the main goal of the anime and manga is to make the viewers/readers' imagination working, to feel inspired and fired up enough to, yeh, come up with your own ending. Though in my very own opinion it's not spelled out that Ikuto and Amu will be together it feels like it's what the author would like too(IkutoAmu moments are way cooler and deep and they have the last moment of the manga together), it's true that they are connected by destiny and all that.
Here are my reasons to why I believe she ends up with Ikuto in both the manga and anime:
Before I start, let me just say that some of these reasons are reasons why I think they belong together. Others are reasons to back up that they do end up together even though it doesn't show it! :) Though... this is mostly for the anime since we all already know that she almost directly states that she chooses him in the manga.
ღ-Amu is a Libra and Ikuto is a Sagittarius. Libra and Sagittarius are a match made in the stars. A Libra and a Sagittarius of opposite genders are just meant to be by fate!
ღ-Amu was born in September, so her birthstone is a sapphire. And what color is Ikuto's eye? Sapphire of course!
ღ-The Humpty lock can only be opened when the holder of it embraces and understands the holder of the Dumpty Key. (Which is Ikuto!) And the key and lock can only be held by true lovers. (This was from the manga. Since the lock and key're in the anime, too, it has to be true for that as well.)
ღ-Ikuto never said he'll never see her again in the anime. Though, he did tell her to "hurry up and grow up." implying that he'll be back for her. In the manga, he did say he'll never see her again but then later claimed that he'll make her fall in love with him, also implying that he'll come back for her.
ღ-She saved his life, freed him from an evil corporation, and gave him freedom to travel the world. Not to mention that she's the love of his life. Does it sound right that he'd just leave forever and act like nothing ever happened?
ღ-In episode 25, she states that Ikuto makes her heart race. Where as, Tadase and Kukai, didn't have any other reason than "The one I like is Tadase, right?" or "Kukai can be manly at times." Thus, implying no back-up reasons.
ღ-Sure she's a little different in the manga than the anime. But she's still the same character. So when she said that Ikuto jumped into her heart in the manga, she had to of thought that at the anime at one point. Even if it wasn't shown.
ღ- Amu's name starts with A and Ikuto's starts with I. What does that spell in Japanese? Ai = Love! :3
ღ-I could but wrong, but I don't think there's any Tadamu merchandise. There's a lot of Amuto merchandise though!
Lastly, even though I said this multiple times but not directly, it doesn't show that she ends up with him. But she does end up with him, regardless. So it's an ending to imagine, but still happens.
I'd say Ikuto-kun would be my 110% best choice he's got the looks, attitude and everything. I just hate the fact that Amu-chan is just being too clingy on Tadase and can't seem to see Ikuto-kun's true feelings-- geez that girl's clueless (I have to admit you guys) After all people say the mangas are way cooler than the anime because the manga has all the complete scenes
bueno, en el anime no queda claro con quien se queda ya que el final es demasiado abierto como para entenderlo, pero si ustedes leyeron el manga al igual que yo se darán cuenta de que en realidad Amu se da cuenta de que a quien ama es a Ikuto, ya que lo que sentía hacia Tadase era simple admiración, por otro lado si ustedes aparte de leer el manga común leen Shugo Chara Encore, (el verdadero final), verán esta imagen (les dejo el link de las imágenes para que lo vean.
PD: aguante Amuto .
okay so i read this on the episode list information thing so i haven't seen it but in the last episode of shugo chara party (season 3) something happens with ikuto and amu and tadase comes and says hell never leave her and that he loves her and kisses her on the cheek, so im guessing they end up together, SUCK IT AMUTO FANS! (sorry i just really like amu and tadase)
I would go for Tadase and Amu, because they will make a cute couple. Tadase is kind and strong in the inside and very cute in the outside. That is why they were made for each other. In the anime, the Dumpty key was stolen by Ikuto. The Dumty key was Tadase's which he had lost so Tadase and Amu was supposed to transform together not Ikuto. These are the best reasoned I have to convince all of yous that Tadase and Amu makes a cute couple, but there are many for reasons other than this, so please go for Tadase. This is my opinion, so those of yous who are an Amuto fan plz forgive me.
Tadase is a rat to me... Even in anime he said he liked Amu when she was Amulet Heart.. He is selfish.... Ikuto liked amu for who she is... Manga they end up.. Amu and Ikuto.. they love each other... its simple as that..
I know in the anime they leave this question mostly unanswered. Tadase kisses Amu, but if you want the real answer, Amu and Ikuto get married and we see Iruto, Ikuto's father with his mother in the background proving he's not actually missing. So that could be the answer if your asking about the manga, otherwise Tadase is Amu's choice.
You guys don't all seem so sure who she ends up with.. Well, to me I was rooting for Amu to end up with Tadase but instead in the manga she ended up with Ikuto.. I was fine with that, just because he was using her at first doesn't mean his feelings will not change over time.. And we all should know that the creator of all this has to post the manga before the anime, yall know that right? So the anime really isn't all that accurate, the anime leaves all sorts of details out. That's why every time I'm done watching an anime, I read the manga and heck yeah that anime sure does leave lots of things out and changes lots of things for some certain reason, lol it gets me so confused of the whole concept of it... So, I don't know why you guys are arguing or whatever but she ended up with Ikuto. Oh and let me say this, I just noticed but Tadase whatever the heck his name is. His a freaking cry baby! This little rat doesn't do anything to help Amu at all, all he cares about is that freaking little necklace heart she's wearing. The little boy did kiss her on the cheek but that doesn't freaking state that they're together! Like I said before to you little peasants, the manga is the REAL THING!!!! They have to post the manga BEFORE the anime, gosh people get it right! She ends with Ikuto! End of the freaking story! (Lol, sorry if I offened anyone with the peasant word)
First of all, Tadase only liked her because of her Amulet Heart. Pretend if she didn't had it, would Tadase still liked her? NO. Second, on white day (Anime) he said ''would you let me fall in love with you?" but he also said Amulet Heart was a part of her. Also people who say the Dumpty Key was stolen yes it wad but if you ever watched the Anime in the last episode in the end of Shugo Chara Doki! Tadase says Ikuto can keep the key. And also, Ikuto loves every part of Amu not 1 part. He also understands her feelings. And Amu only really liked Tadase because of his prince belike and hes nice and cute but after a while in the anime she doesn't blush when she's close to him and when she's close to Ikuto she does so she's likes Ikuto Tadase was only love at first shight she even says in the anime she liked him cuz everyone else also did.
Everyone.....Pls.... Believe in tadamu.... I get really offended..... I only want to see them end up together. I know that Ikuto risk his life got reason but Tadase doesnt have the chance and courage to confess to amu until he came to amu's house. He get really happy when Amu accept his foolish confession the next day, they even been posted as the best couple ever..... Ikuto is using amu to get embryore.... I vote for tadase but i know that some of you get offended. Im telling u the truth that if shugo chara didnt exist they wont be manga of shugo chara! Im sorry! Manga is the worst story idea ever!...
I understand that this issue is highly debated but evidence is evidence. The anime didn't specify because I believe it was targeting a younger audience than the manga.... but there were certain similarities to the manga. Example:Ikuto licks her ear, catches her in the park, the whole ice cream thing when she's with Tadase, sleeping beside each other, shields her in battle, the whole Lock & Key thing (which is a pretty big deal), Amu reaching out to hug Ikuto, Amu genuinely worrying about Ikuto (and no not like when she's with Tadase and she freaks out like a 5 year old lol - these are 2 different types of worrying) etc.
Not to mention, in the final episode of the series, it's mainly Ikuto & Amu. Ikuto also uses a line from the manga when he tells her to "hurry up and get older".... in the manga he actually said "I'll come back for you when you're older". I believe that also is to prevent confusing younger audiences.
Basically, when you compare the Amu+Ikuto romance vs. Amu+Tadase romance there is no competition, in both the manga & anime. There's hardly any real romance or actual grown-up feelings between Amu and Tadase. Meanwhile, Ikuto and Amu both found themselves learning from one another; she was the first girl he liked and made an effort with (according to his sister), and he was the first person to invoke grown-up thoughts in Amu's mind. In fact, Tadase was just a crush to Amu.... I believe Nadeshiko even told Amu in the first season that she was only attracted to his "outward character", then Amu admitted it to herself later on.
**Oh and one more thing after I read a few more answers!! If you want to compare who loved Amu more and which guy had the best motives for the embryo, that's also no competition!
Meaning, Tadase fell for Amulet Heart (even tried to buy Amu a hair pin to match A.H.) THEN started to like Amu. Not to mention, Tadase wanted to find the embryo for worl dominations... not exactly a noble cause LOL!
Meanwhile, Ikuto loved Amu herself, from the beginning. Ikuto was also ashamed of his actions and associations with Easter but really wanted the embryo to escape that life and learn more about himself... I think that might be better than world domination, ne?
Woah there are a lot of arguments here about who does Amu end up with! First, let me state this CLEARLY, the manga is the ORIGINAL VERSION of Shugo Chara until some nutto said" Hey let us make an anime about this and change some stories!"
In the last encore chapter it is ALL ABOUT AMUTO. Age difference doesn't matter at all, plus the age gap is only 4-5 years, not that much. In Hollywood stars date old people a lot. Love can conquer anything! Tadase and Amu's relationship is what you call teenage love. Tadase rejected Amu TWICE. First saying he is likes another girl, second is Amulet Heart. Did he like Amu on the first place? NO. Ikuto did! In the anime, they did not clearly state who Amu will end up with though there is 50% she will be with Ikuto and 50% she will be Tadase. We don't know unless some one asks the director. Ikuto and Amu's love is more deeper and mature, they care about each other. When there is trouble Ikuto will save Amu while Tadase is yelling like a girl in the corner and took the credit for saving Amu when Ikuto was the one. *Sigh* Sorry Tadamu fans but Amu ends up with Ikuto. Seriously, how can Amu still like a person who rejected her TWICE? Impressive. Tadamu is what you call puppy love, Amu only adores Tadase's face, not the inside character. *Tut tut tut Amu. Don't judge a book by its cover* Personally, I think the chance of Amu and Ikuto together is bigger than Tadamu. But Tadamu fans can say it is Tadase and Amuto fans can say it's Ikuto. :)
If you go by the anime, it's a lot more open. Obviously it was changed up from the manga. However, the manga is the original and if you go by the ending of the manga(Shugo Chara Encore), Amu ends up with Ikuto. As others have already explained, at one point, Amu stated that while she liked Tadase for his outer character, Ikuto had somehow found his way into her heart. And during the Road of Stars, it is hinted that Tadase and Amu do not end up together because future Tadase says that the two of them have not seen one another in a long time.
If that wasn't clear enough, Shugo Chara Encore makes it even more clear. There is nothing romantic that happens in Encore between Amu and Tadase. Their interaction is completely platonic, just like two friends. In fact, Amu is seen sad and down about Ikuto not having returned from searching for his father yet. She misses him and is wondering if he'll really come back for her. Just as she is wandering around town, depressed and lonely, Ikuto shows up and surprises her. They go back to the amusement park where Ikuto first took her a long time ago and he ends up kissing her nose after promising to always come back for her when she has had time to grow up. While they're all attending the wedding, Tadase has a conversation with Ikuto, stating "I only want Amu to be happy. If you make her unhappy...well...". It's clear here that even Tadase accepts Ikuto as the one Amu loves. After that point, Amu and Ikuto are shown holding hands and Amu states that her future will be alright as long as she keeps "holding tight to that hand". When Amu tries to catch the bouquet of flowers and slips, both guys are seen helping catch her. Tadamu fans like to say this means the ending is left open, but it is not because, by this point, it has already been established who it is that Amu has feelings for. That scene is merely there to add some light-heartedness to the ending.
