So in Last Friends, obviously Takeru likes Ruka, so do you guys want them to end up together?

i really hope ruka will accept takeru
HEY takeru is a super nice guy
hehe....if and only if ruka didnt has the gender problem, they might be together

I just want Takeru to end up with someone who truly love him for who he is instead as a floating buoy/safe harbour/spare tyre. Ruka is unlikely to consider him as a prospective confidante...oops soulmate.

Maybe they can share each other in a queue... Ruka --> Michiru --> Takeru --> Ruka --> Michiru and so on, going round and round in a circle

because of ep 7 we can say that Takeru doesn't like to share Ruka with someone ( and his mug)!

Yes and no, I mean I'm not sure why Takeru likes her (I'm not saying he's wrong, but I'm not sure of his reasoning). I think it was love at first sight (when he saw her on the bike, or at the store) and up until his confession I don't think he really understood her at all. He knew she had a secret but I doubt he knew what it was.
Come episode 8 he still loves her, but now he understands who she is

Liking somebody isn't enough, especially when you do it for the wrong reasons. It actually offended her when she heard his confession the first time.

The only thing I want to add on is that Ruka needs to wake up to the fact that she deserves someone like Takeru, who's extremely sensitive to her (ok, 1 mistake doesn't mean forever dumb, since he did make up for this in EP 8). Her love for Michiru has gone unnoticed for > 4 years (that's like an eternity in today's dating world) which has strangely been spotted by Takeru in a super short span of time (definitely < than 4 years, lol). Ruka, ditch Michiru and embrace Takeru! Unfortunately, love doesn't work rationally for devoted people as displayed in its "glorious" form by Sousuke.

Add Michiru's naivety to the fact that homosexuality doesn't permeate Japanese culture like it does elsewhere and I can't blame her for not noticing. If a guy is flamboyantly gay it stands out, but I don't think people were constantly second guessing Ruka (as you can see from Takeru's confession and her uh.. 'senpai's' advances). People just used the word 'otokoppoi' to describe her boyishness, which isn't as strong as otokorashii (boy-like) or otokomitai (looks like a guy). In addition, we don't know how much Ruka expressed her feelings for Michiru when they were in school. Ruka could have been pretty secretive about being any more than a best friend, as I doubt she wanted to be outed in high school.

Now granted Takeru liked Ruka's description of her desired relationsihp, but was she really telling the truth? If someone asks someone in the closet what they want in a relationship, I'm sure they have a whole stock of answers they routinely give out to both bar suspicion and cease further questioning. If it were a perfect world and she didn't fear discrimination she'd probably just say "I want to be with Michiru, end of story."

I agree that Ruka needs to give up on Michiru, she's a lost cause (and I hope she'll spend some time to help her former coworker and get away from men for a while, but seeing as she's pregnant, I'm not so sure, hahah), but I don't know if ending up with Takeru will be the right thing. If she really is a lesbian she needs to find some other women, a-same-sex-opposite-sexuality crush is gonna kill her the same way it's killing Takeru.

I agree with your observations about Michiru and Ruka, since Ruka obviously didn't act on her feelings when they were in high school. As for Ruka, though she is seen as being decisive and capable of making up her own mind without much interference from others, she is easily swayed by the presence of Michiru.
I'm inclined to think she's unsure about her gender identity as Ruka has been ruminating about her gender during Michiru's absence and choosing to focus on her career. She doesn't seem to want to express interest in any person during this period of time too (to avoid a mess).
Aniway, what Ruka needs now is someone to confide her secret to and not keep on repressing herself. Takeru is the best person for her as a friend at this point since Ruka undeniably needs to find out more about herself and her actual inclinations/sexual orientation. She need to interact with someone whom she can trust besides her consultant. Though Takeru is in love with Ruka, he doesn't allow this to cloud his impartial view of Ruka so far. Thus, he might be able to help her to understand more about herself.
To sum up, it's really up to Ruka in this love triangle and even as friends, I prefer her to end up with Takeru...

I'm just saying we don't know how Ruka really feels and we can't act like we know what's best for her. If she's a lesbian then, by definition, she can never be with Takeru. If she's (going to end up as) a straight trans-man, then by definition, she can never be with Takeru. Those are the only two ideas they've explored.
A third avenue is Ruka could transition and all of the sudden find herself attracted to gay men (a la The L Word) and then we find out Takeru is gay, but I honestly don't think that could happen because that's like saying sexual trauma is a cause for homosexuality (which is one of those slippery slope arguments that leads people to think there is a 'cure' for homosexuality).

In other Takeru news, on the series chart it says Michiru is friends with Ruka and Eri is friends with Ruka, but nobody is friends with Takeru. Eri still has the 'seems gay' thing pointing to him, and Michiru and Ruka both have '?'. I don't think they updated it from episode 7 to episode 8, but you'd think they at least have something to say about the connection between Michiru and Takeru.
