Hi new here, but I have to say that unless Ringo shows that she's willing to put Ikki first, he's never going to trust her, and will never be able to love her.
We know she loves him, and he did care about her. But she's always hiding stuff from him. She knows all of his secrets, and has no compunction about using them, sometimes against him. However he knows very little about the true Ringo.
Kururu is cute, but she seems too much of a psychophant.
I've only read up to 216, and the videos, but I think the only way that Ringo and Ikki get together is if Ringo openly (no swimsuit mask disguise) betrays Sleeping Forrest right when it looks darkest for Ikki and the gang. Or takes a near killer blow for Ikki, or something like that.
Ikki's quest seems to be just to fly with his friends.
Ringo's quest seems to be to have enough courage to be honest and recognize what's truly important. But that's not gonna happen until alot more AT battles happen.
I don't think Ringo is gonna be able to survive the storm called NIKE.
I actually quite like Kururu. She reminds me of my fiancee, in that she's a very kind, calm, and likeable character. Maybe she's a little TOO subservient (this is kururu only now lol :P) and a bit too into ikki considering the stage the pair are supposed to be at, but still, i'd prefer it any day.
Essentially, the question is whether ikki should want someone who's been open and honest with him, and someone who has hidden a hell of a lot from him and done nothing to seriously hold his trust. I know I couldn't form a relationship with the latter circumstances weighing me down, and I don't think ikki is the kind to be able to either.
Of course, this is just my opinion. We'll just have to sit back and see how it pans out :P
why would Ikki even be interessed in Ringo?
ah... now i understand...
id say it still possible...i think... We can rule out Simca since she isnt serious and Ikki knows it. So its pretty much a toss between kururu and Ringo. Personally, Kururu is a bit too babyish and as Rumina Asagi said, a bit too subservient, sometimes to the point of annoying, but meh, maybe thats just me.
