Rui and stuff

HEY THERE. This comm is basically dead, so let's try and revive it, okay?

... yes, I realise that I am very much to blame, being too involved with real life stuff to bother to visit lj very much, and that's going to continue unfortunately. Still. Just something bugging me-

Can anyone read Japanese? Do you know if Rui uses masculine or feminine pronouns? (If you don't, can you find a raw scan?)

And, everyone else, please post something. I don't care how stupid or pointless it is, just post it. Any thoughts about fanfiction (yours or others), the manga's current arc, the stupidity of Koko's third line on page 12 of chapter 63, etc. Whatever. Anyone's allowed to post - if you're a member, and if you're not a member, all you have to do is click the "join" button - so please do. :D

YUKA AND YUKIHIRA WERE NOT FRICKING MARRIED!!

If I see another "no she's too loyal to her husband" or "I don't think she'll ever remarry" comment, I think I'm going to explode. No matter how many times I try to explain nicely that Yuka was too young to be married (at least not without parent's consent), or that they were stuck inside a freaking prison of an Academy and really, I can't see Yuki saying to the ESP, "Hey I'm in an illegal, irresponsible and morally questionable relationship with a student, can we go out and get married puhlease?".

...  or I dunno, maybe they were. (Were they?)

Gakuen Alice pairings quizzy

I am not sure if this poll is working. I hope it does. Anyway, comment about the answers you picked and why!

EDIT: Oh crap, I messed up somewhere - there is meant to be a separate option, "No I don't" for the first two questions. Somehow it got mushed together with the "I don't mind" one.
Argh how do you edit it?

Luca and Ruka and whatnot
crow
sapphirecrow
I spell Luca as Luca and not Ruka.

Tachibana Higuchi has herself said (allegedly - I admit I have not seen this for myself) that she intended his name to be Luca, not Ruka.

Luca sounds more French than Ruka.

The only reason people insist on using Ruka is because of the FANsubbing and UNOFFICIAL scanlations.

Tokyopop says Luca.

Okay, they say, but the proper Romanisation of his name is Ruka. The only reason you want to do it the "wrong way" (Luca) is because R = L and K = C. Well, I say, so how come everybody says Luna instead of Runa? Geez, stick to your principles!
There are three solid reasons for using Luca - Tachibana-sensei wants it (and isn't respecting the mangaka the most important thing for a GA fan?), Luca is French, and the officially translations in the bookstores with copyright and money-making says Luca.

There are no such reasons for writing Luna rather than Runa.

(Although, I guess you could make a case for "lunar", being that her kanji means the moon... but still. See, I am a considerate person.)

THIS is why I'm annoyed. No, I am not freaking mistaken.

The Ending.

What do you want to see happen in the end? What do you think will happen? Are the answers to those two questions different?

Post here. :)

Yukihara and the ESP
Shikamaru, smile
victoripenguin
I was wondering how other GA fans feel about the ESP and Yukihara after the recent chapters.

- Did Yukihara meet your expectations as a character?
- And do you feel that the ESP has become a more interesting character since hitting on Yuka or did he become a more one dimensional villian?
- And of course, do Yukihara and the ESP's actions towards Yuka creep you out? Of course without Yukihara/Yuka their would be no Mikan and no GA, but Yukihara/Yuka's relationship caused Yuka and Mikan a lot of hardship and loneliness.
- And was Yukihara and the ESP's attempts to control Persona the reason he is who he is today?


Personally I don't like student-teacher relationships as a rule. But since it was Mikan's parents' I tried to be patient and understanding. But when it turned out that other teachers knew about the relationship too (it is statitory rape) and they did nothing Oo   *moral police attack* I just didn't love Yukihara like I had wanted to once he was revealed, he was much more immature than I expected.

Persona
kittehface
feel free to shoot me if this topic is unecessary


Hmm, in the recent chepters, it felt like Persona's been developed a lot more and is more important to the storyline now. He had a sad childhood, a but like Luna... He was close too Mikan's dad, enough to be named by him. I don't want to mention anymore and spoil the last chapter, but what do you think; good or bad? Does he have a right to treat his students like that? Does he feel guilty? Is he a crossdresser?

Yaoi
gakuen alice narumi
sapphirecrow
I dislike this word because it makes me think of yoghurt, and I dislike yoghurt.

Anyway. I, following my usual obsessions, searched around for "narumi/misaki gakuen alice" on Google, and it came up with a link for a discussion about "Favourite Yaoi Pairings" on the GA MangaFox forums.

Of course, like all good threads on the GA MangaFox forums, it had been deleted. (Much like every single other intelligent discussion over there, yaoi-related or not.)

But that's a complaint for another time - and angry as I am about MangaFox and the modding over there, I won't go into any more of that.

So, what do you guys think of yaoi? And specifically, yaoi in the Gakuen Alice fandom? If you like it, do you have any favoured pairings? What do you think of Rui (and Narumi's, uh, tendancies)?
