Yes! I voted for this pairing.Originally Posted by Spurgu
Even though Ichigo and Rukia as a couple is really awesome, for me it's just too...typical, I guess.
I like the Ishida and Orihime pairing because I feel some sympathy for Orihime, who likes Ichigo but has always been playing second fiddle to Rukia. I think Ishida would be a good match for her, since so far he's been playing second fiddle to Ichigo...it would just be nice, I think, having the two of them as a couple.
In my opinion, Ishida would treat her better than Ichigo would. When Ishida fights Mayuri and tells her to run away, she isn't frightened and confused the way she is when Ichigo does the same thing later in the manga. When Ishida protects her, which he does a lot of, he doesn't make it seem like it's his job, or a burden. He does it because he wants to.
Well, I think this is a better match than Ichigo and Orihime, anyway.
