Disbanding IchiRuki/anti IchiHime arguments with manga pages alone
Did it rain when Orihime left or got hurt? No it didn’t right? Keep writing your fan fiction doe
“Rukia saved my life. Rukia changed my destiny. Its because of her I am here now” “The power in my hands was gained for her sake” “I won’t let you kill her” Vs. “I’m fighting because …I have tried to win”
And everyone he fought, had to provoke him. Son didn’t even want to use his Bankai in HM. “How many? No matter who tries to stop me, I will beat them all”
Since he slept peacefully the night Orihime left, didn’t think of her or mention her ass.
Compared to Rukia he cried and said it hurts BECAUSE she was gone. When has he ever done that for Orihime? Never.
okay, i lied. but it doesnt take much effort to slam the rest of these failure arguments. ichigo was upset that rukia was gone just like he was upset orihime was abducted but you’re making more drama out of it than it really was. ichigo was crying because he missed his power to protect, not because he couldnt function without rukia. as soon as she gives him his powers back she goes back to SS to NEVER interact with each other again even now and ichigo is perfectly fine. he is not the rukia lovesick puppy dog you make him out to be and frankly thats unhealthy AF. but really whats with all this comparison bs? if you have to degrade ichigo’s relationship with orihime your ship must not have much of a leg to stand on.
She’s okay with being in the friend zone now. When before she despaired because she could never leave it. But in HM arc she said that people may not love you th same way you love them. But it’s OK, you can still be in heir heart
why do IRs have a habit of associating romance with stuff meant to be purely platonic? how is ichigo being singled out when the chapter title referencing the speech is SIX HEARTS will beat as one, directly referring to the six nakama (orihime, ichigo, rukia, chad, renji, uryuu) love wasnt even mentioned tf the quote is ‘’its impossible to feel exactly the same way as someone else but when you both care for each other your hearts are able to draw a little closer together. i think thats what it means to make your hearts as one.’’ orihime is referring to despite her not feeling the same way as ichigo, rukia, chad, etc that came to rescue her because she thought her decision of leaving was for the best and they shouldnt have come, they are connected and their hearts are one, and she would’ve done the same thing they did if their roles were reversed.
she even says ‘’my heart is already with ALL of them.’’ has nothing to do with her ‘’unrequited’’ love. if it did and she’s okay with being ‘’friendzoned’’ why didnt she stop loving ichigo after the timeskip, especially after they hit rock bottom in the lust arc and she saw ichigo become a monster which should have shattered her ‘’idealistic’’ view of him she’s supposedly in love with? this isnt a shojo where the girl loves the guy who loves another girl and she has to come to terms with it. its a SHONEN, one girl is given the romantic feelings for the protagonist that is reinforced throughout the story to be RECIPROCATED at the end because shonen does not focus on romance for there to be this love triangle bs.
Ah the beauty of FRIENDSHIP. Great unrequited love stories are made of this stuff. I am happy for your friendship-ship. Rejoice! Cuz friends are 5ever!
speaking of which in 2008 kubo wrote off IR as precious nakama meaning everything that happened between ichigo and rukia during and before that time including your precious SS arc you constantly reference was not romantic.
