i personally like ringo... i usually not very keen with some-sort of female characters that admired from the sidelines & just giving courage at hard times only.. its a bit cliche..
but, i think ringo is an exception because she actually very good (& is an elite) with A-T, & basically because she is ikki's old friend..
i'm very supportive with, "old friend turned to lovers" relationship like miko-chan x hanai (school rumble) or renji x rukia (bleach)...
i think ringo have some real agenda becoming like that..
& maybe then, people one day may said, "Oh, thats is why she acted like that..".. &.. " I had misjudged you,ringo.."
i know kururu is cute & all.. but i think she's have a bit boring side, actually..
she can be supportive to ikki, but, so what, the bitchy simca can do a supportive role in a different way, though...
One may argue that Ikki actually needs a girl like Kururu for him to get his act together. Or did you forget who it was that showed Ikki and co. that they have to get up from their asses and train.

but, never mind, though...
as long as simca didn't made as ikki's real pairing, then i don't really give a damn whether its ringo or kururu.. but, personally i like ringo, with the croissant swimming suit mask.. ^^ got to love it..
"RINGO" PROS: sexy in crazy apple mode, loves ikki, hotter w/gravity child eyes, skilled AT rider, king, nice boobs, made her true feelings known via <> kiss, knows alot about the world of AT, & knows ikki best due to there long friendship.
CONS: leader of SF, attacked Simca while she was defenseless & crying, put a hurting on ikki, held her true feelings in for far to long, & she could have prevented ikki from becoming the leader of genesis if she would've told him about SF when he asked!
"SIMCA" PROS: huge boobs, pink hair, hot contacts, hot w/gravity child eyes, skilled AT rider, truly got ikki interested in AT's, highly talented ex/founding member of Tool Toul To, looks good with long or short hair, slightly perverted :cool:, knows a "WHOLE" lot about the world of AT, actually smarter than we thought, she has feeling for ikki, looks good when distraught, & she kissed ikki via <>.
CONS: Is in Genesis, hardly ever straight forward, cut her hair (i could care less), has a twin brother.....with almost the exact same hair style:-k, Older than ikki...at least between 19-22yrs old (seeing as Sora is 22yrs old), & was originally using ikki!
"Kururu" PROS: cute, a mix of ringo & simca, hot untidy pink hair, Pledge Queen, likes ikki as well, looks cute in her Tool Toul To hat (just like simca), she is the only girl out of 3 who has actually been there for ikki, also is ikki's tuner....major plus, doesn't seem to have anything to hide.
CONS: Thinks she is annoying to the point where she becomes annoying, reminds ikki of simca @ times, is introduced into the story rather late....unless Air Gear is much long than we think, & she is not in the current story arc right now!
Current most likely pairing: Ikki/Kururu
Overall end of manga pairing: Ikki/Ringo
Upset underdog pairing: Ikki/Simca
therefore its a toss up....well have to wait till the end!:smt119
P.S. whew i'm bored!
Didnt expect Simca would be that unpopular.
She is not really unpopular, but she is in no position to be anything more than a associate to him.......but we all know that can change quickly.
yeah you just never know with OG he likes to pull things out of his ass. I think Kurura is the most likely but I like Simca. Shes just cool like that.
I vote for the Simca/Ikki pairing. Simca was his initial inspiration to taking up AT. He also chased her for a while and even got pissed off at Ringo for hurting her. He was also there in Simca's hospital room while she was injured. Simca also clearly has feelings for him, although it's communicated symbolically with the crow metaphors. She's also the one that believed in him first. Sure, she has played games on him every now and then, but that has blossomed into something more.
Kururu is a close second, seeing how she supports/helps Ikki, has feelings for him and is his tuner. She's innocent, friendly and cute. There's a good chance of a relationship deepening with time. There was indication that Ikki might have some feelings for her (ex. phone).
Ringo. I don't like her. Despite her position as the Thorn Queen, I think she's a bitch. Ok, she likes Ikki, has known him since they were kids, hangs out with him, taught him AT, helped him with a team battle and has shown concern for him, but in the end, Ikki doesn't seem to have any feelings towards her. To him, she's just a sister or friend. It's one-sided. I also don't see any deep chemistry between them as 'lovers.' The other two girls at least have that going for them to a certain degree.
cant see it being kururu, shes too human! Ringo has got tragic heroine written all over her so that leaves simca. When I first read the manga (after the anime) I was shocked by mikan. She was the one who helped him first on AT with advice not ringo and i thought it was gonna be older nee-san acting tsundere to ikki then realizes that he's no longer the brat he once was and fall for him(why i side with simca, the age thing)! Go back and read the first few chapters you'll see what i mean.
I prefer Kururu aswell. I never really liked Ringo and I am not really clear about Simca...
