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...
To find out a girl's faults, praise her to her girl friends
Put your hand on a hot stove for a minute, and it seems like an hour. Sit with a pretty girl for an hour, and it seems like a minute. THAT'S relativity
