Why do you think Irie Naoki prolong the pursuit for Kotoko? (and did mean things to her)

I think it's a multiple of reasons.

It's pretty obvious by ep 13 or so (w/e one he stole the "2nd" kiss) that he acknowledges that he likes her. I think it also has to do with not giving into the demands of everyone around him. He's used to doing things his own way simply because everyone trusts him to not make a mistake. With Kotoko, it's not easy to predict things and he knew his mom wanted him to get together with her and he was just stalling simply because he didn't want to give in.

I think he was trying to avoid the fact that admitting his feelings would cause his mom to go overboard with insane ideas and he probably liked his nothing-ever-goes-wrong lifestyle at that time (which she did and had happen). I suppose Kin-chan's proposal caused Naoki to realize that he needed to choose one fast, he either had to admit his feelings or let his life continue how it was, only without the girl he liked. And he decided that Kotoko was worth more (yay!)

i think irie didnt like her and thought she was not good enough for him but he had a really stiff life and then when kotoko came she made everything unexpected and fun and he started to like her and then when kin-chan proposed he realized that his life would be boring and he wanted to still stay with kotoko

i think irie started out to be selfish in the beginning because he didnt realize the things in life untill kotoko came. So i think when he knew kotoko a bit more, irie knew more things about life than he did before. Kotoko showed him the good and the bad things in life, and so irie knew that kotoko was more than just a person. But in the beginning since he was still selfish, he would do those things to her and try not to show his feelings(which he did very well at XD ) and plus, hes the type of person who would keep his feelings and most of his thoughts to himself. But when kotoko came, he opened a bit more, and showed more of his true self

I'm going w/ some other reason.
i think he wasn't comfortable w/ how he felt b/c he had been really mean and cold and what not.

Christ loves everyone xD

But yeah, as I said before: Irie just didn't 'like' Kotoko back then...

I'm going by what I read in the manga summaries, but I also agree with the fact that he thought he'd lose Kotoko. I also think he just likes playing hard to get and that doesn't always work.

They briefly mentioned him being dressed like a girl in the anime, but not to that detail.

From my experiance, the girls are the meanies. I'd never laugh at a love letter (how heartless T_T). Heck, even outside of relationships, women are meanies....

i have 2 theories...maybe he was being mean to her is because he liked her. ya know? he was kinda acting like what little kids do when they have their first crush and all that....and my second one is pretty much what RyuShoji was thinking...

I think Irie was really testing the extent of Kotoko's love, by being mean to her and showing no interest, any normal girl would have given up, but Kotoko fighting on proved herself to him.

Also, I don't think Irie 'liked' her from the start, but he probably started liking her sometime after she moved in, but of course, living together would have normally caused friction, that with lack of confidence (remember how long it taken him to tell his parents he wanted to be a doctor) and not really understanding his true feelings until later on.

That's my theory anyway.

I think he didn't realise how much he liked her till he got angry when Kin proposed to her... And I think he is shy. hahas.
