So is yurixwolfram cannon now in this ending? Did yuuri actually admit he likes him now?
Which ending? the manga canon or the special Misepan we’ve been talking about last week?
In the manga, chapters 108 and 111 are very explicit (in a japanese way) about their development as a pairing. Yuuri drops the same line Wolfram said during the cliff scene, there’s a hug like the cliff scene but this time from Yuuri to Wolfram; they’re walking holding hands later and even if Yuuri is shy/blushing/mad he doesn’t let go and they used an entire panel to show a close up of their hands tangled with shoujo manga bubbles as background. Yuuri’s mouth says one thing, but their actions are saying another, Wolfram isn’t the only tsundere here. Even Shinou appears and ask them to stop the date because the world is ending outside.
Misepan, the novel special, it’s also explicitly talking about them as a family, a 3 person family with Yuu, Wolf and Greta (since the special “together with father” placed in the timeline after novel 4, Conrart was labeled as grandpa but they never repeated that, it was Yuuri in the POV who said it).
But if you’re searching the “I love you”, no luck, their way to portrait love and romantic stuff is very different than ours, so no kiss and no I love you, but touching and holding hands and the things said are showing the reader there are feelings involved. Also, before you think “hey but shoujo manga has kisses and they say i love you/I like you a lot!”, please remember this is shonen ai so it’s not that easily comparable with a shoujo manga; plus, the series is focusing on the adventure and the crack comedy and not the romance. T-sensei used to write yaoi novels, maybe not so much plot but more smut, but it seems she’s trying something different with maruma, and they also need to keep all these harem fanservice alive.
I know the anime failed portraying their relationship/avoided lots of stuff from the original work, but even when T-sensei’s writing a fantasy-shonen crack comedy full of drama and adventure, and looooots of harem fanservice with the main character and not much romance, the main pairing is settled since novel 1 and their development never stops. She dropped one or two comments here and there letting people know that was her decided pairing and her favorite character is Wolfram, and that being the author she obviously will want to giver her fav char whatever he wants (aka Yuuri). These are some strong hints from the voice of God. Honestly, I fail at seeing how this isn’t canon, even if she kills one of them that will not change their bond, and at the point of development they reached in the novels it’ll be very hard to switch a pairing for Yuuri, solve the engagement issues, develop more plot/feelings for another character to make it real, solve Greta’s father issues, solve Wolfram feelings, etc. So, even if I don’t see the wedding or a kiss or the I love you, all the stuff out there so far will never change my point of view about the canon pairing of this series. That doesn’t mean I don’t want to see any of that, I’ll welcome any kind of yuuram fanservice they want to give us, like what happened with the manga and these cute original scenes inside the box.
