Which pairing do you like better? Why?
Personally i support ichixruki friendship!! ichixhime all the way baby!! This is a big discussion and i'm gonna put most of my thoughts in this post. Orihime has liked Ichigo since before the beginning of bleach. It started out with her already liking him. Yeah it's true that Ichigo went to Soul Society to save Rukia, but who wouldn't?? I mean she saved his life for crying out loud!! I mean if someone saved your life, would you not try to help save theirs too if they needed it? Or would you say 'Oh I'm sorry. You saved me but i don't wanna save you.'? Heck no! Plus they were friends!! Over the couple months she befriended everyone there! Everyone went to save her! Rukia still loves Kaien-dono. Maybe she loves Ichigo but more like a brother and definitely as a friend. I'm a fan of the childhood friends pairings. Like Rukia and Renji. Renji already loves Rukia and i suspect she loves him too. So that takes care of RenRuki. :) Now why i think IchiHime works. She loves him!!! He was willing to go into Hueco Mundo alone for her!! He went through tough battles and kept getting injured so he could save Orihime! Just like Nel tells Orihime, when he heard Ulqiorra-sama say her name, Itsygo charged right at him!! Not to mention the fact that he came back from the freaking dead to protect her! People argue that she shouldn't have been scared of his mask. Her brother was a hollow and attacked her (and Ichigo)! Hollows are scary! And to think that the person she loves is one would make anyone terrified! She still loves him though! Oh and the whole reason for her going to Hueco Mundo was to protect Ichigo (and everyone else)! She was only allowed to say goodbye to one person, and she chose Ichigo!! I'm convinced he loves her too or other wise he wouldn't have come back from the dead as a monster, which he hates, to save her! So i rest my case. I would like to hear your input too. Thanks for taking the time to read! :)
