Shout-out!

Okay, Yanda's officially my favorite. D is driving the Yanda/Asagi train, and I think I'm about to climb aboard. I really didn't have any ships, and kind of wanted Jumbo to get the girl, but... yeah, Yanda/Asagi.


Also, when shopping for D's thing on ebay, I got this for me:

Even the trading card people put them together!

I liked that scene a lot, but not enough to ship him with Asagi.

D had some strong arguments, including that a young single guy with nothing better to do on his day off than horn in on a family outing is in desperate need of a woman.

I just bought volume 9; the decisive Asagi-Koiwaii Hot Air Balloon trip is included.

Asagi and Koiwaii have already done a lot of stuff together.
Koiwaii already has the stamp of approval from Asagi's family.
Asagi and Koiwaii have great chemistry.
Asagi thinks Koiwaii is fun.
Yotsuba adores Asagi, and vice versa. And finally.

Asagi can handle Yotsuba. If nothing else Koiwaii should marry her just for that.

We only have seven volumes and couldn't think of any time they'd spent together. Except when she got permission to take Yotsuba bike riding and brought her back covered in scrapes and bruises.

What does Asagi want out of life? What does she want to do? I don't even know. She's in school, right? What is she studying? Do they have common interests and values and goals? The story's not about that, obviously, but if I'm to buy a relationship, I need to see some evidence of that, and I don't.

Maybe it's a cultural thing, or maybe it's because I don't like kids, but I can't imagine being 19? 20? and getting involved with someone with a kid, saddling myself with an insta-family before I even did anything in life.

It's one thing to get along great with a kid as a friend/babysitter/big sister type. It's totally different being responsible for them as a parent. Would she really be up for that at her age?

True, all true. The reader doesn't really know Asagi that well, not as well as Fuuka, at least. Thus far, she seems to be enjoying her youth, hanging out with Tora, paying for her own vacations, etc. We may infer from something from the fact that she has model-like looks, but she doesn't seem like the typical materalistic beauty queen type either.

The fact that Koiwai's never been married/divorce should make a difference, as does the fact that Yotsuba is old enough not be a screaming toddler but young enough to get used to accepting others as part of the nucleus family. Besides, no one is asking them to date with marriage in mind. Koiwaii's pretty good looking too (see, reaction of Fuuka's classmates to him when he visists the Cultural Fair).

And he's made her coffee.

So did Luke for Lorelai. I didn't think they were a good match, either.
