as for rin and shiemi. it's impossible. I don't get how people don't see that.

Why would it be impossible?

If it's about Shiemi friendzoning Rin, you're fixating too much on what she said. It's quite obvious IMO that the word 'friend' doesn't mean the same to her as it does to other people. If we go by the way she was acting (blushing, "Kyaa, I said it!"), it's clear that she sees him as more than a normal friend.

. . .

you know
I do think renzouXizumo, rinXshiemi and yukioXshura would be way more interesting pairings.
because I don't see them happening in a hundred years. so that means they'd need a lot of development.

but I'm being realistic.
izumo continuously rejects renzou while he don't care so much and basically go for any girl anyway.
shura and yukio are like big sister and little brother or sempai and kouhai.
and even though rin likes shiemi, she doesnt see it at all.

I already told you that but,
shiemi massively blushed when she asked izumo to be her friend too. but she was even more scared to ask rin because he already rejected her friendship-request once. and of course she's happy to ask him to be her friend because she wants him to be her friend. but rin isn't pleased to be asked to be her friend because he don't want to be her friend. he want's to go out with her. when he invited her to the amusement park he was thinking "yay, it's a date" but shiemi was like "yay, stalls and rides". she care about rin as a person, but she's completely blind to the fact he likes her and she is completely friendzoning him.
on the other side she also don't see yukio likes her and I think she thinks she don't really have a chance. but she likes yukio. in chapter 7 we literally read her mind and she's thinking "kyaaaa. we're alone together. kyaaaaa.". only with chapter 3 you can see she likes him. . . and don't tell me that's admiration.

that's because I'm realist that I think yukio and shiemi are the only plausible pairing right now.



for rin and izumo I'm not so sure. rin don't really care about her. but I think she likes him.

I actually did and realized it was a mistake. I need to really meditate who would be a good Shounen Ai couple here...

I agree. This one would need a lot of development for it to work.

Also agree. I don't understand why people pair them. They can't stand each other.

This might be true. But being oblivious of his feelings doesn't mean she can't like him.

I still don't see how this makes Rin x Shiemi impossible. Sure, she might be unaware of his feelings and/or her own, but I think she really likes them. For me, that's a first step (I know you think differently, you believe friendship and love are mutually exclusive. I think they're two sides of the same coin).

As for her crush on Yukio, I believe it will diminish and disappear. She was in love with his perfect image more than anything; now that she has seen his bad side up close, she will probably look at him in a different way (which doesn't mean she won't care about him anymore, but her 'love' came off as very fangirly, and I just can't see the idolising work now. She seemed pretty shocked witnessing their fight on the island). So I don't think Yukio x Shiemi is very likely, unless they get some major development, too.

QFT.

shura and yukio are like big sister and little brother or sempai and kouhai.

Mm, disagree on the latter. They're colleagues, trained at the same time by the same mentor. Shura exceeds Yukio in rank only due to maturity issues faced by the latter.

I just can't see that happening. Shiemi doesn't really know Yukio at all, and viceversa. All Yukio can see is a pure beautiful girl. He doesn't know her flaws and weaknesses. All Shiemi can see is a perfect genius. Only in the last arc did she start to realize how wrong she was.

Yukio has much bigger problems to tackle before getting close to anyone. He has trouble just being close with his sib, for Pete's sake. He's the wrong guy for any relationship right now, with his inferiority complex.

ok. so if yukioXshiemi would also need a lot of developpement,
that means all the pairings (shuraXyukio, yukioXshiemi, shiemiXrin, rinXizumo, izumoXrenzou or izumoXryuuji) would need lots of development to happen. so none of them seems likely right now.


though like I said in my earlier incomprehensible drawing.
I think the love interests works like that
shura - yukio><shiemi<rin<izumo<renzou - ryuuji
with the addition of renzou>any-cute-girl-around

so the question is which would be faster?
shura and yukio starting to like each other
yukio and shiemi getting over their misunderstanding of one another
shiemi starting to like rin
rin starting to like izumo
izumo starting to like renzou
izumo and ryuuji starting to like each other


humm...
I should really read the last two chapters instead of wasting time here

Yeah I voted for IzumoxBon
Thats like my only ship.

I also voted for RinxShiemi and ShuraxYukio.
I don't really like the RinxShiemi ship but I know its going to happen.
I doubt Yukioxshura will happen anytime soon.

(I haven't read chapter 40)

Do it! Shima gets himself a date!!

How about all knows sons of satan together? Rin/Yukio/Mephisto/Amaimon. :D

as for rin and shiemi. it's impossible. I don't get how people don't see that.
Rin/Shiemi is the most obvious pairing in AnE. If you mean that Shiemi friendzoned Rin, well, it's not what happened. She didn't " Whoa, let's don't go that far and stay friends, okay?" friendzone him, it was "let's take our friendship to another level, because I'll never let you down" type of declaration. After he actually kinda confessed to her, it was a milestone for this pairing.

Although Shiemi is friendzoning Rin now doesnt always mean that she will. I think there are slight improvements. They are 15/16 right now, they are just barely starting to come out of that ewww boys/girls have cooties stage and start to notice boobs and ding dongs. I dont really want to spectculate any real pairings until they are a little older and have gone a couple of years of schooling at least. I think by the age of 17 or 18...thats when we will see definite real love emotions.

again, I've already said that, but anyway
does that look like a guy who feels he's making progress?

and don't tell me he's that mad just because it doesn't go fast enough for him.


and see the ず there? this sound effect means someone extremely depressed, disappointed or discouraged. here it's like his heart has sunk in his chest.
I'm not exaggerating nor making this up. ask someone else who knows the sfx.

edit: wait
this isn't a sfx. its the first letter of the next word repeated twice.
*sigh* I'm so stupid
it really does look like a sfx. and its right in context.
maybe it's both . . .
whatever



korekara nani ga atte mo zutto. . .
watashi ha rin no tomodachi yo!
zutto zuuuutto tomodachi dakara ne!

from now on, no matter what happens, I'll always. . .
be rin's friend!
because we're friend for ever and eeeever!
