she's actually wanting to ask him to become her friend rather than telling him she is though

But yeah, there ain't much underlying subtext beneath Rin's denial of being friends with Shiemi - we see this kind of typical "misunderstanding" in anime all the time. Given that Rin appears to be especially hot-headed and arguably bratty even by shonen male lead standards, scenes that amount to "Act first, think never later" are something i expect to encounter on a fairly regular basis.

I wouldn't blame him too much though in this situation - while definitely a response born out of embarrassment, his interactions with Shiemi haven't been that numerous. Unless i am missing something, beyond his involvement in episode 4 they haven't really interacted much, besides the occasional short exchanges during classroom. Given his personality, i am not surprised his trying to weasel out of a situation he likely considers embarrassing from 'cool guys' perspective (Friends with a girly girl ? Yuck!), and they don't know each other well enough for him to put his pride aside.

So .. yeah, i think he was just being childish

He's always childish. Which is making this serious difficult to enjoy.

Just like justinstrife said, sadly not many anime characters actually say that He may have turned down Bon's challenge but that was probably only because of the heavy burden that he is constantly reminded by Yukio that made him remain that situation, or maybe because he was always constantly caught into fights so he is used to it.
Ah, your comments remind me that Rin held back because he wanted to avoid having to draw his sword. So I guess if it weren't for that, he probably would have accepted the challenge, but to have thought that much is a surprise for an anime character like him.

I'm kind of glad they set it up that way, too. It makes more sense given Rin's experiences growing up.
That is a very deep reason for Rin's reaction but, given Rin's personality, I don't think he would have thought that indepth at that moment. Like what Skyfall said, he was probably being the typical "hot-headed" anime guy with a childish reaction. It especially agrees to his bashful behaviour earlier when Yukio left him and Shiemi alone. I do wonder how many girls Rin has actually ever interacted with - probably very little, if any, considering how he was brought up and bullied.

There is also the fact she come off to him as being interested in his brother and not him and given the short time they knew each other they really hadn't technically become friends yet and he didn't want speak for her in claiming they were closer then he belived they were.

Moe is anything that incites a... 'Funny' feeling inside of you... It's mostly positive but too much and it can result in massive blood lost.

*cough*

Anyway it just means that some people feel 'happy' when they see Rin... Yeahhhh...


Changing topic now, it takes some getting used to, but the OP by UVERworld is starting to get catchy for me

I can guess why someone may think like that. I mean, until now in the anime, he's an adorable teenager. And he's fun, lively, a little tsun tsun and has something for cute and cool things. And besides, has a strong will but is a little dense.

I can understand them. For me, he's certainly "cute" and enjoyable.

And he's got those cute ears and unruly hair that's a very dark shade of blue.

Oh and don't forget he wields a big sword.

I'm not sure if the sword part fits into the moe but good to know. There are plenty of fangirls already going for Rin so I can see why..

All he had to do was touch it, he didn't need his sword for that.

It's not that deep.... and imo is the proper reason.

Nah, it would be the monastery that would hinder any relations with females. Some girls like bad boys.

Yukio was bullied also and is a chick magnet now.

Rin did say if things go wrong (which it did) that he would have to draw his sword, so I don't think Rin knew that his rage/powers are alone enough to scare the lesser demon.

Huh? No, I don't mean girls being attracted to Rin or not, I simply mean how Rin seems to lack the experience of interacting with "cute" girls. Plus, it seems that Yukio had more training and other things going on while Rin was kept in the dark.

haha, can't agree more, Rin is the type of main guy I completely dislike. the typical-hot-headed-STUPID-anime-guy. also with a girly name.

the sole reason I keep on watching is the animation quality

episode 6 sure was entertaining despite it being a filler that I didn't care much about it being a filler though a lady's jealousy/anger sure is scary
