rukia probably likes ichigo. that much is given. there's been too many hints about that as it is. the resemblance between kaien and ichigo, byakuya's comment, renji being so defensive etc. but what we don't know is how ichigo feels. he went to soul society to save her, yes, but he thought of it only as a way to protect someone. that, to me, doesn't sound like love. it could have been orihime, he still would have gone if he only wanted to protect someone. i agree that orihime seems to be coming more and more into the picture now, especially after they come back from soul society. again, the affection displayed here is obvious, but we don't know which one ichigo will choose in the end. it could go either way, and although i am a rukia/ichigo fan, i think with the setup it could just as likely be a orihime/ ichigo ending. dont forget the complications of a relationship between rukia and ichigo that orihime/ ichigo wouldn't have.
Hmmm, think about the action of the manga, and less on the romance. XD
Hear Hear! Bravo! I agree completly.

I also agree but a great story includes all genres which includes of course ROMANCE. But in the case of Ichigo and Rukia, it's not really obvious how they feel for each other (though I feel they love each other).

Bleach doesn't really qualify as great. It's good, but it's got it's own problems, and some of them are pretty big.

As for romance, I would really prefer if they didn't go to in depth about it, because most of them are only fifteen and the others are like one hundred fifty, I think it would just be distracting. I like the kind of tension that is developing now between the characters and any kind of.... resolution would probably kill that. You can do a lot with love interest in character building by not saying anything at all.
another couples thread?! oh fush da wuck... id be so happy if KT put Isane and Retsu in a lesbian mother-daughter relatinship... then this would be the greatest manga evar... :P
I like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
