UlqHime. This is one of those rare cases, where artwork, closeups and looks have laid most of the basis of speculation.Now, when two characters gaze into each other's eyes........it can mean many things. It can be love, it can be hate, it can be fear, it can be understanding. The point is, frequent eye contact means an emotional bond and intense non-verbal communication. Whether positive or negative, it is intimate......not something casual friends or impersonal enemies exchange.

The starting point is when Orihime stood upto Ulqi and slapped him in the face. If you examine the OriUlqi scenes before that, it's distant, it's cold........they're drawn like any espada intereacting with his prisoner. He's disinterested, she's unsettled.
Spoiler for Manga, but has been animated. From the slap scene.:

The slap was a turning point. Perhaps she earned his respect? After that whenever they meet........the artwork suggests some brooding interest in Ulquiorra . Orihime alternates being afraid, or guilty or sympathetic.Yet he always has some effect on her.

Credit to Royal Devil for the next two observations:
Spoiler for Manga, but these chapters have already been animated. Grimm vs Ulqi:
Spoiler for Manga, but these chapters have already been animated. Grimm vs Ulqi:
The real reunion I was waiting for :
Spoiler for manga, chapter 315. Not yet animated:

Ahem, the following two pairs of eyelocks sent chills down my spine. Of course, the emotions might be different (love in one, fear in another?) But strangely............very similar.
Spoiler for Manga chapter 317. Anime-only fans beware!:

This isn't proof. But artistically, these have been among the most impactful scenes in Bleach. There are certainly some sort of emotions behind all those glances.....With Rukia and Ichigo, or Ichigo and Orihime, one knows that behind any teary look are tender emotions. But with Ulq-Hime, it might be that all there is between them is fear, respect and curiosity.The mystery makes it that much more intriguing.

Amirali's convinced me. I should've paid more attention to those subtler panels earlier. I now also think KT's paid special attention to the way Ulq and Hime look at each other, whether or not it's romantically intended.

Yeah I agree. That's a really interesting look at the Ulq./Hime dynamic. Hmmm... Certainly stirs up a lot of questions. At this point I'm more interested to see the resolution between those two than her and Ichigo.

Renji/Rukia is my favorite ship...actually, it shares top honors with Ichiruki (Conflicting ships? Say it isn't so! ). It's part of the reason I hope neither becomes canon, because I'd probably bemoan that the other didn't, but I'm babbling.

Anyway, they certainly do have a nice relationship between them. I hate when some shoot down this couple on the basis that Renji abandoned her...he may not have made a decision that left Rukia entirely happy (see my next points below), but the sentiments behind it can't be ignored, IMO. It's rather hard to understand the feudal system of nobility when none of us have ever lived through it, but that sort of thing is serious business. I can't imagine someone would work that hard for forty years to become Vice Captain--under the man who adopted her into the family, no less--out of sheerly platonic love.

Quote:
Rukia fell for Kaien after being parted from Renji, and i always felt this was her replacing her affection on somebody similiar to Renji (subject to opinion of course).
You bring up an interesting point that I've thought about for a while: If Renji and Rukia still had each other--or at the very least, if she had a closer relationship to Byakuya or anyone else in the Kuchiki family--would Rukia still feel so close to Kaien? Would she worship him so much? I have the feeling that wouldn't be the case. Kaien was the one persons in a sea of many including Renji at this point who treated her as just another normal person and not as some untouchable noble.

Speaking of that couple, my mind still goes into the gutter anytime I see this screencap. I mean...WTF.

Quote:
I think what I meant [I type first, think later] by "nothing in the way", I was referring to physical boundaries or people objecting [not getting into the Ichigo thing... I've sworn off that subject], since some seem to think it's a good argument that Ichigo and Rukia can't be together because they're in different worlds.
I hope I'm not starting another wank by commenting on this (because I do like this couple), but it *is* something to consider. Rukia has worked hard for her career, and now that Byakuya's not putting a damper on her promotion anymore, she can only move up from here. Likewise, Ichigo may have the ability to cross over between the two worlds, but he's still got a life here on Earth to live.

This is NOT to say that it absolutely can't work out, but it would be difficult if they did the long distance thing and the two could only see each other once every few months or so. I've only seen one fanfic actually explore this in depth, and the toll that it took on their friendship when one of them inevitably wanted more than the other could give and the relationship ended.

Haha. Don't get me wrong. I completely agree.
Just trying to not get my head bitten off here. : D

Was it when Renji was telling Ichigo about his and Rukia's past? I remember Rukia's VA saying it was difficult doing those lines (the part where Renji and Rukia part ways) without getting choked up. It was really emotional.

Wouldn't mind renruki so much, but I don't see it coming to fruition.

Yeah I agree. I've got a soft spot for Renji and his unrequited love when he isn't losing fights left and right like a complete tool.

I find his affection for her endearing.

sorry, thought most would get that DBZ reference Krillin has the most impressive loss record in the series, has been killed/brought back like three times and yet, he gets one of what would be considered hottest women in the series
