    Default WTF is with Maya?

    I don't understand this manga at all!! Especially the whole maya, Nagi, Aya part. Aya loves Nagi, Nagi loves maya, maya loves the dude that wears the butt tight cloths. I am just confused! What's the point? Maya is is constantly telling Aya that she and Nagi are the same. Why doesn't she just tell the kid to take a hike or tell Aya that she doesn't feel anything for him? Does she like him? What is the point of the whole dymatic? Can someone help me out?

    I have read until the end and I am sorry I just don't get it. If someone has the time to explain I would greatly appreciate it.

    I understand the pass connections between the familes. I get all that (kinda) I just don't understand why Maya is important if this whole situation really revolves around past and present Aya and Nagi, then why thrown Maya into the mix? I don't understand the point. and I obviously missed something so if someone who understand this better then i do has the time to answer a newbies question I would be thankful.

    imo Nagi is no longer in love with her in that manner, now she is the one he wants to surpass, protect and love like a mother figure. You don't cry into the chest like child when the chest belongs to the girl you want to be with, that's reserved for when you feel protected by someone, only punk ass bitches feel protected by thier ladys and Nagi ain't no punk ass bitch.

    Yay!

    the love triangle goes way farther than just Aya-Nagi-Maya; it's more like a love chain than triangle:

    Nodoka->Masataka->Aya->Nagi->Maya<->Mitsuomi<-Emi

    Unrequited love has always been a staple in manga/anime, at least as far as the ones I read, but this one takes the cake.

    I think there was a similar thread regarding this matter. Well, as for the question, here goes m opinion:

    First of all, I don't think that the current situation revolves around the past/present Souchirou and Aya. Since we are dealing with feelings here(rather than story), I find that Souchirou looks up to Maya as a woman who has a strong figure(just like her mom), but as he is very unexperienced with women, he mistakes this "admiration" as something else(love, probably). He then finds Aya as something childish(or fragile, thus she's quite normal in his eyes) therefore can't think of her as anything more than just a friend. This was, of course, way back during the first half of the series. Now, things have turned out quite differently. As the previous chapter implies, we can assume that Nagi has somewhat sorted out his feelings for Maya. As to what it is, we have yet to see. And as for Maya, I'm not really sure as to WHO she loves. Obviously, she still reminisce about her past with Mitsuomi, but has also hinted a certain liking to Souchirou(which I believe is nothing more than a sister bringing up a younger brother). She says that she can no longer be with Mitsuomi, but doesn't really say that she doesn't love him. All in all, Maya and Mitsuomi fit well together. And for now, she doesn't look at Nagi as a "man" yet, so no romance until then.

    As to Maya's significance to the story, I believe she serves as a catalyst for the young Nagi Souchirou to mature from being the "brat" that he is and also teaches a thing or two on how to be a strong woman to Aya(remember their duel at the rooftop?). She also serves as the driving force of the Jukyenbu and he pillar that holds the important characters in tact (Masataka, Mitsuomi, Nagi, Aya). Thus, she is important.

    Look Aya is in love with Nagi since the first time she met him, bad luck for her Nagi fell in love with Maya the first time he saw her which led to Aya getting all sad when she found that out.
    But I think that Maya also like Nagi because at the moment when Maya was about to fight the Mohawk dude, Aya said:"Even without my Ryugan(dragon eye) there is no doubt that my Sister loves Souichirou-sama."
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Now Masataka fell in love with Aya the first time he saw her but unlucky for him she is in love with Nagi who doesn't like her back.
    ================================================== =======
    At some point, Mitsumi started liking Maya but Maya's love for her brother is stronger. NOw Emi likes MItsumi who likes Maya.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Nodoka likes Masataka but doesn't know that Masataka is in love with Aya
    ************************************************** ************
    -Mitsumi fought SHin mostly because he was jealous of Shin and shin's relationship with Maya. SHin and Maya did act like lovers.
    -Emi fought and hates Maya because of jealousy of how mitsumi feels about Maya.
    -I'm sure at some points Masataka will also fight Nagi who Aya loves and to make matters worse he doesn't love her back. It has already been hinted that deep down inside he doesn't like Nagi much.

    Wow It was more complicated then i had thought. I think I understood all of your points thanks for writing down for me. You too Devius they were both helpful. Ghost could post the chapter where Aya says that Maya loves Nagi because I must have missed that one bcause I don't remember reading it. The reason I brought up Maya as to her plot value, especially within the scope of the "love chain" I just don't understand the point as why the author had Nagi fall in love with Maya. Was it just to set up the rivalery for Maya and Aya? Was his "love" that superfical? Couldn't have Maya played the role she needed to without that added complication? Or does Nagi's feelings (and Maya's I suppose) have greater plot value then the author's letting on? ( I know no one can answer this with anything really conclusive but I would love your opinions)

    yeah i have to agree it is very confusing. But here is what i think....

    Mitsuomi is now in Shin's position from 2 years ago. That's why Mitsuomi made that remark "is this how Shin-san felt when observing Maya's fights" (or something like that)

    Nagi is in Mitsuomi's position 2 years ago. My defence is the part where Souichiro said to Souhaku "Seeing her smile again, isn't that enough of a reason" (something like that....)....and that is what Mitsuomi said too....or something similiar to that atleast.

    And Maya is in the same position, torn between both. She has a past with Mitsuomi, and now she is currently involved with Souichiro. So i guess i can safely say she likes Souichiro? The dilemna is that if she were to openly say that Mitsuomi would go into a rage (maybe cuz shin did) and kill Souichiro.

    So in conclusion, i believe Maya likes Souichiro.
