well, it is damn food, considering some people lick and swallow some body fluids during sex, eating somefood shouldn't shock you. heck japanese eat raw fish and people eat almost raw meat. Eating mayo and chips even with honey didn't bother me at all.

I actually agree with you. Seems like when i series gets its own forum thats when a lot of flamming starts. The discussions here in Kimikiss have been very good from the start. Although i wouldnt mind having a picture sub forum.

Flamming is actually a proven method to increase post numbers. If not overdone, it's fun a lot of times.

Anyway i think it's good to have one thread. For one, you don't need to observe so many so-called rules by posting one thing in a thread and something else in another. But a way to sort the pictures out is good, the forum software should support tagging so we can easily search for what we want.

I like how things are unfolding for Eriko. If Asuka ended with Kazuki, however, I wouldn't mind, because that would help Eriko mature more.

I'm still with Mao and Kouichi all the way. I don't want Yuumi to get her way without doing anything, that would suck.

The more the producers drop us hints of Maoxkouichi the more I am readying myself for a MaoxKai ending. IT is too easy and when it is easy it doesn't happen. Now if the hints were like With ASa from shuffle who came from no where and always was in the friend zone (with the exeption of the bathroom incident she never was a contender) then I could think about it.

going a little offtopic here, all the girls after the boy in shuffle were pseudo Childhood friends with the exeption of Asa who he met in highschool! Mao has a big obstacle on her way, the childhood friend handicap!

Why do you consider the Childhood friend part an obstacle? I would think it would be more advantageous to her positon given how most romantic animes tend to lead towards childhood friends developing feelings later in life.

I do agree that the Asa event was an exception but i was a fan of her before she was a contender. My prediction is that it will hint at a MaoxKouichi paring for a while causing some drama to ensue, which causes Mao to run towards Kai and deny any such feelings for Kouichi till something else happens that finally forces her to make a choice between the two.

At this point both Kai and Kouichi have a pretty good chance with Mao. The key to watch for over the next 2 or 3 episode is what happens with Yuumi.

Not the truth imo. Sometimes it also depends on how lazy the writers are feeling

I say that given the current situations, it is not easy for mao to express her feelings towards kouichi because of her current relationship with him. He has always been her little brother and she has been the older sister. In cases like these it is actually harder to say "I love you" to each other than if it was a stranger. Because the defult feeling is still there neither sides will feel that much to push for a further relationship, fearing that the other person doesn't feel the same. eg while mao is developing feelings for kouichi she is restricted because 1) yumi is his girlfriend 2) she doesn't want to alienate him if he doesn't feel the same. It is hard to take back an event that has happened and a confession like this would just lead to awkwardness afterwards.

Because the times a childhoodfriend end with the boy or girl is very rare. You can count the time it has happened on both hands. This is of course when there is more than one person aiming for the childhood friend. When both are childhood friends it is most of the time left open ended. If there is only a childhoood friend and another girl the chances of the childhoodfriend are very small.

check this website for some info about childhoodfriends!

Long distance relationships are impossible in anime!
besides kouichi doesn't know how he feels about yuumi yet, he kind of was forced into the relationship by Moa. guess who is now regreting it! Of course like I have said this is just the producers feeding us all this.

That's just you. Childhoods friends have a considerably high success rate, actually

The only archetype that has reasonable success against childhood friends are childhood promise archetypes or out-of-the world girl archetypes

None of which apply to Yuumi. She is the token nice girl. (may or may not evolve into yandere)

And a lot of times, childhood friends double as childhood promise archetypes. Come to think of it, didn't the beginning of the first episode air something?

hmmm, care to mention a few? the rate of choosing someone else instead of the childhood friend is very high. I remind you again that this only apply when there is an opponent that is not a childhood friend. Shows like Myself:yourself don't apply because everyone is a childhood friend with the exeption 2 girls. there is a some shows where the childhood friend win, but they are very rare. one of the worst case of the childhoodfriend being shafted was Canvas2.

somecases i can mention myself where the childhood friend won against many opponents.
Gatekeepers(they didn't stay together after highschool)

Last exile(some people said that Claus and Lavie ended together including the trope website but there is not proof that they were more than friends)

Aoi yori aoshi(they also were promised to marry)

All these are very old show, I can't remember the last show were childhood friends ended together within the last year that had another girl also aiming for the boy.

shows this season where the childhoodfriend lost.

E-F memories
Decapo II( though it is not over but Koko is out)

Possibly open ended

Rental magical
Night wizards

Ya i know who you're talking about. And I wouldn't go as far as saying "IMPOSSIBLE" for anime, as Card Captor Sakura is one great example at the end of the series, along with the above example with Ichigo 100%, so i wouldn't be so ready to throw out long distance relationships. If anything, they are hard to pull off, but they can still work out. And I would stress out the "kind of" part in the "kind of was forced into the relationship" as he already was at least infatuated or interested in Yumi in the first place, ever since they were freshman. All Mao did was give Kouichi a push in that direction and gave him a few opportunities because Kouichi was indecisive how to approach her. Thanks to Mao, he's now more confident in himself with Yumi. And also really, I dont think we have to question how both Yumi and Kouichi feel about each other, its pretty much apparant by everyone else in series. He's not being strangled with feelings for Mao and Yumi, its mainly Yumi at the moment. He might be after Mao confesses, but we'll see how that turns out.

Also just wondering what ever happend to Megumi (twin ponytailed tsundere)? I know in the game, she's one of the major girls to get together with, so I would have thought that she'd probably join the the group, and maybe get some character development from being the strict class president tsundere she is to a girl that Eriko is starting to become. Oh well...

oh i don't argue that there is big chance that it will be KouichixYuumi at the end, the maoxkouichi has a bigger obstacle that the long distance relationship between Yuumi and kouichi. Remember that i said in anime because long distance relations work in real life. I am more inclined to believe that Mao will end with Kai. this show is a pain because it is so hard to predict.

My bet is
Kouichixyuumi
MaoxKai

My preferance is
KouichiXMao

I doubt i will get what I want. the producers are dropping to many hints of something between Mao and kouichi, but Mao and kouichi have the childhood friends handicap!

I get a thrill when the producers keep droping all those hints for a maoxkouichi pairing, it gives me hope even though I know it is just a damn trick to keep me interested in the show!

It seems like MaoxKai is set in stone. It's waaay to early in the season for the sudden realization that Mao has feelings for Kouiichi, which makes it obvious MaoxKai will hold in the end
