IN the manga, I despised him. But he gets better. I still like Kyoko ending up with Ren. But Fuwa should fall in love with someone else. (After he learns his lesson of course)

I hate what he does to poor Kyoko : she followed her loved one..but in the end was just being used
Now, sho sees how great she is after she leaves him..heh..she should end up with Ren though luck for sho. He will realize what a great girl she is and regret it . Hahaha

There was another thread about whether we hate Sho... this was my response:


Not at all. You know, I don't think Sho really took Kyouko along to Tokyo just so she could be his maid. I mean, he was around a lot more in the beginning; the problems didn't start until he got popular. And from the flashbacks, it seems like he got along pretty well with Kyouko in the beginning, too. I think he took her along mostly for emotional support. He didn't want to be alone in a strange city. Also, you notice that Sho gets his manager to take care of him when she comes into the picture. He's affectionate toward her, but he also depends on her a lot. So it's like he didn't need Kyouko as much anymore.

It was wrong for Sho to treat Kyouko like that, but... he couldn't really love her. She devoted her life to serving him, and they weren't equals. Kyouko didn't have any interests of her own, and she never stood up for herself. He couldn't respect her because she didn't respect herself. Sho couldn't relate to Kyouko because she put herself below him; she wasn't on his level. Basically, Sho treated Kyouko like a maid because that was the role she assumed herself. That's why it's easy to believe that he actually does love her later, because she's become a much stronger person. She has an attractive personality at that point. You know, I think that Sho maybe didn't intend to really dump Kyouko like that. I think he was tired of her behavior and stopped coming around for that reason, and then he talked about her immaturely. But I think he always cared about her more than he let on, even if he doesn't know it. He didn't mind using her, but he always worried about her when she was upset over something like her mother.

And you know, Kyouko used Sho, too, in her own way. It wasn't mean like what Sho did, but... She basically put him in the role of her prince so she could live out her Cinderella fantasy. Kyouko had always been scorned by people like her mother, so she felt like the only way people would care about her was if she was useful to them. That's where she found her self-worth, and that's what she staked her happiness on. So waiting on Sho made Kyouko feel good about herself, and she was also depending on that to make her happy. She was dependent upon him for her self-worth and her happiness. That's a lot of pressure to put on another person. It's like she was trying to make him love her, and that's bad. No one wants to feel obligated to someone else. Also, Kyouko didn't really treat Sho like a real person. She ignored his flaws and preferred to see him as her "prince" than as who he really was. That's almost like saying that the real Sho wasn't good enough, he had to be an ideal for Kyouko.

I'm not really sure whether Kyouko really ever loved Sho in the first place. I think she cared about him as a friend, but she didn't get depressed when she found out the truth. I mean, I wouldn't expect her to mope around all the time, but it seems like she would have been at least a little sad. But the only thing she got sad about how she had wasted her life waiting on Sho. I think that Kyouko probably thought she was in love with Sho, but she was really in love with living out her fairy-tale life. Subconsciously, of course. I feel like it could've been someone else for her.

Anyway, I couldn't hate Sho. He's just too adorable. It's so cute how he's so childish. It's so funny when he acts like a little kid to his manager, or thinks about how wonderful he is, or loses his temper. I think Sho, more than being mean, was just immature. He was selfish with Kyouko the way a spoiled kid would've been. He's started to grow up a little now and take more responsibility, and that's really sweet, too. That scene where he took Kyouko that scar cream was just adorable. I think I really prefer Kyouko with Ren, but I like her with Sho, too. I love love/hate relationships, and their arguments are just adorable. You can tell how close they are. But I think Nakamura plans it so we don't ever like Sho/Kyouko too much. I noticed that instead of saying that he cares about Kyouko in vol. 15, he says she's still "his." I don't like his possessiveness. I think that's his childishness again, but it's still selfish. I do wish Kyouko would get over her hatred, though. As long as she's after revenge, she's still letting Sho determine her worth. She can only feel satisfied when he admits that she's won. I hope she realizes that eventually.


i must say "well said" you have given in a real in dept thought of the shou and kyoko relationship. I totally agree BUT i really believe that by not defeating shou kyoko is not letting her self experiencing the real love. Becaue she keep on clinging to the past and still believe that she was in love with shou. I do agree with you that the love kyouko has for sho is to gain self worth. but by defeating him she will not gain anything i just hope that she will see it before she loses everything.

Shoutaro was really a pain in the neck in his first few appearances and I couldn't comprehend how any man can do that to a woman (*what he did to kyouko*). But looking at flashbacks (when they were still kids), i did sense that he cares for kyouko but I didn't know why he said such strong and mean words to his manager which Kyouko overheard...

I wouldn't say that I 'hate' him but I really don't like what he did to Kyouko. I do like how silly and childish he is sometimes though.
