It’s funny how people think Orihime isn’t independent. She’s lived by herself since middle school. She has her own job, paying bills and still manage to be in the top ten of her class. Sure, her distant aunt helped out. But, that obviously isn’t enough if she has to work. While most of her other friends still live their parents. We all know she’s too proud to ask for help. Orihime doesn’t want to burden anyone. Even though her nakama wouldn’t mind helping.
