Also i wonder if Ririka will be a kind of Schizophrenic crazy Nanamine character, who would do anything to ruin Azuki and Saikou's relationship or whether she will fight for Saikou's love fair and square?
And, if she's a psychopath, Ohba can have her and Nanamine meet and fall in love later
^ Or it can be the otherwise. We'll get to see Azuki's killing intent in the name of love. Only for Mashiro.
^ I don't want that either! Can't we have a happy ending for a light hearted series like this?
^ Since the Hiramaru/Aoki ordeal is pretty much almost done, I assume this Ririka/Mashiro/Azuki will now deal with the romance department of Bakuman. We all know Azuki will win, but Ririka's personality seems like she'll bring up a good fight!
^ Here's my "Bad Ending" scenario for the series:
Ririka kills Azuki. Mashiro gets shocked and depressed and loses all his motivation for drawing since Azuki was the main reason for his career. And it happened that Reversi (Or whatever they'll think up in the future) will get an anime adaption, but it was too late for them. Mashiro couldn't get an anime on time, Azuki is dead and won't be able to voice-act his character, and thus he won't get married. In short, his dreams are shattered. Being unable to handle all this, Mashiro commits suicide and follows Azuki to the grave.
^ From being slice of life, it has become somewhat horror, lol! I feel sorry to Takagi for losing a partner-in-crime though.
Goodness, what's with all this talk of killing characters for love on New Year's Eve (or New Year's day, depending on your time zone) I doubt Ohba will ever kill off any character in Bakuman. I certainly hope I'm right about that. I think Azuki and Saikou's love will only grow stronger after this incident with Ririka (whatever drama she may bring), and will spur Saikou to work even harder to make REVERSI even better. In fact, I suspect he might get some ideas for REVERSI from his interactions with Ririka. Right now I'm not sure what, but Saikou and Shuujin often do that (take ideas from events happening around them).
Anyway, HAPPY NEW YEAR, EVERYONE!!! Bakuman section is awesome because of all of you
I just thought... What if Ririka does something to put Azuki in the hospital... And then we get like, a, reverse situation of when Mashiro was in the hospital. I dunno, I don't WANT the characters to get hurt but the situation might become interesting... Yeah.
I don't think Ohba can ever be so violent or cruel in Bakuman. In terms of bad condition, the farthest so far was letting Nakai rot away (at least, he's back, getting fit, and motivated by Yoshida's manipulation).
You guys are giving this new girl a lot of credit. I don't think she has an actual desire to be with Mashiro. She's just a new voice actress who thought she could get her foot in the door and land a big role faster if she was dating the guy who created the series getting an anime. The second she found out Saiko is not only single, but engaged to a pretty popular voice actress, she realized she was out of luck and was ready to leave.
I'm a performer so I've thought about doing that too >_>
