What do you think the reasons were for Irie to fall in love with Kotoko?

As you all know, Kotoko pretty much thought she was dreaming and that in real life Irie would never like her.

I think he fell in love with her when he realized how determined and optimistic she was, because she never gave up on her love for him. I think he liked how she brought a little chaos into his perfect, planned out, peaceful, and boring life. With Kotoko around, everything was unexpected.

Irie was a selfish guy, he was a genius and he knew it
and he thought that nothing was impossible for him to do.
He didn't care about other people's feelings, he was rude and mean.
And then he read the love letter of Kotoko without permission, and then he said that in front of the family in order to humiliate her!
Do you remember that?
Do you remember the slap from Kotoko? (YEAH!!!!) HAHAHA! she got you didn't see? you arrogant bastard!!
Serves you right!!
That was the time, that was the beggining! There and then.! She confronted him, and she saw her with different eyes!!

And the second time, he was hers!! It was in graduation from high school, where he was makin fun of her feelings again, and she took out the picture of him as a baby dressed like a girl!!! When she said "I'm gonna forget about you" he did not like that!!
That's why he kissed her!! He wanted her there and then, but was so selfish to admit!!!

Yeah, I think he like the fact that Kotoko makes his life more exciting. He's a genius and it's like his life has been planned smoothly. So when Kotoko comes along, I guess his life becomes more happening.
And lets not forget the fact that she is very determine in pursuing him
I love that girl, really.

Perhaps he's already in love with her even before their 1st kiss. He's mean to her, but I dont think he will go as far as kissing her if he just wants to tease her. It's the fact that she wants to forget him that he doesnt like, and so he kisses her so she wont forget him.

I think it was just the fact that she didn't like him simply because he was a genius, or that he was handsome and even though that was her first reason, I think the main reasoning is simply that even after she saw all his "faults" (his life at home and his mother, who would scare most girls away with her ideas) she stilled liked him and kept going after him. Kotoko was different from everyone else.

And besides, when you've been through everything they've been through, how can you not fall in love? You live together, get stuck together, save each other and see each other for most of the day, you can't help but get some feelings for them (whether it's sibling love or romantic love).

I just re-watched Ep. 3, the one in which Naoki actually read the love letter to him written by Kotoko, while she's asleep. I think maybe he starts to like her after that (well not that instant, but you get what I mean ). Probably 'coz the way she conveys her feelings is so demure and honest, not like the way typical lovey-dovey love letters usually are. Plus Kotoko slaps her then for reciting the letter to everyone, and he probably didnt see that coming from someone who is head over heels for him.

Which leads to maybe that's why he kissed her the 1st time, 'coz he already love her back then and doesnt want her to forget him.

Haha okay I'm done with my theory, but that's what I think.
(and this is the result of re-watching almost every episode while waiting for ep. 18)

Yes, with Kotoko, life is more interesting.. not boring, dull, plain...

It's just like Kare Kano... with Miyazawa, Arima kun's life was spiced up... he's a little too perfect... and boring by himself.. so he's glad he has Miyazawa...
