I guess its because I prefer talkative, less serious girls IRL. Its all about personal preferences. That's why I like Amagami SS. Just choose the girl that you prefer and enjoy the show...

Maybe one of the other reasons why she's popular with gamers is because she doesn't have a lot of requirements to win her heart. I mean I played a Love Hina fan made dating sim and instead of choosing the popular ones I decided to choose Shinobu.

Personally I like Ai, she's probably my 3rd favorite character right now.

Actually, the kanji she uses for Ai is 逢, which is "meeting" or "rendezvous". Words change their meaning based on the kanji used. For example, Ai can also be written with 哀 for "sorrow", 藍 for "indigo", or 愛 for "love".

Right, there. It's complicated. I study Chinese, it's the same.

Anyways, Ai's great. Japan agrees.
At least, she's not as unrealistic as the others.

But honestly, when all the other girls seem to have one kind of problem or another... Ai seems the happy odd one out. That's not a bad thing, is it, really? What I really like about her is her sense of normalcy, her neutrality, her unpretentious style.

Yes, she's a kuudere.
And that's absolutely sexy to me.
Her interesting choice of underwear is both utilitarian and hot. Perfect.

The drama CDs for her are super-adorable. Yukana has a really nice kuudere voice.

This may seem superficial, but what really got me liking Ai's character, was her version of the ED. Yes, that alone was enough. Though, there's more to it than that. She's just a calm and collected character, which, while isn't my favorite type, is definitely a nice one.

The ending to her arc...was...risky.
Or, the way I see it, it was.

And y'know what? All that and a bag of tricks. Once she gets to the point of knowing what she wants. Ba boom. Very good surprises.

Those teases were great, btw.

Plus, even though she appeared to be the closed type. She opens up once comfortable. Using that belt-toy thing is a good example.

<3 Ai. I noticed that she is also smart and quickthinker. It was shown on their second meeting at the park:
- Um... you're from the same school as us, right?
- I don't think anybody would be wearing this uniform if they weren't.

OVA
- It's pretty cold...
- It's december after all.

Though she like to tease Jun, but she is pretty straight with answers, and when Jun asks her, she's quick to anwer. I think having younger brother Ai accepted Jun as a bit childish, and find it cute, thats why she was so fast interested in him.

Based on the certain event, I think you are right about Ai's feeling.

**********************************

Amagami's official anime website shows the different aspect about Ai.
The website has the diary of each heroine.

In the begging of Ai's diary, I remember it was like, "Must watch out that person! His eyes are so H! Be very careful"!

If Junichi doesn't go for her route, she has the different perspective about him. It shows in anime Haruka's route. Ai sees Junichi as a peeping tom.

Thumbs up

In my eyes, Ai is the best girl of all 6. The whole arc mood was directed by her amazing character. You can call Ai arc love from first site. Little pashion ignited between them from the very begining in the park. Yes, maybe it lack some drama or tension, but thats what Ai is about. <3 her for these reason:
She is not typical girl, counts little less on woman logic and doesnt make nonsence dramas, for example like Kaoru did, disappearing and making every1 worried, Jun, her mother, just because her mother felt lonely of man company. Or not like Haruka, an older student, that had so much attention from boys (should be wiser) but calling Hibiki asking for advice, on what she should do. Ai dramas are real like not getting into swim team, though struggling so hard to get there. She has strong character, refused to cry at presence of Jun "But Tachibana-senpai, I wanted to see you even less", but when shown that he cares about her, she opened her emotional self.
Being a little less girlish, as I mentioned before, Ai understands male nature very well, and accepts it as it is, calling Jun perv, though smiling and dating him at the same time, lifting skirt just to satify his hunger.
She is bold, she know what she wants. Ai doesnt mind saying whats on her mind, if it is a date, she will ask a boy for it, wont wait to be asked, if it is a kiss, she will take an initiative and kiss him, breaking all typical girls stereotypes. Total opposite of Sae.
