Thread: Rin's reasons for liking Shirou

  1. #1

    Rin's reasons for liking Shirou

    Hey guys, I was wondering- other than Rin's major reason for liking Shirou what other reasons do you think contribute? Also do you think she would still like him if some of his traits were missing? What if he didn't have his signature six-pack? I don't think Rin likes him only for that, but I wonder if having it gone would make a difference? This may be a silly question I'm just legitimately curious on others thoughts lol.

    I mean in universe Shirou is kinda the plain protagonist. The guy with looks is Shinji and maybe Issei.

    Well Issei wouldn't poke her with a 10 pole stick. And Shinji only want to bang her

    That leaves only Shirou

    Rin is secretly also a big fan of swords.

    Well, for one, Shirou is a magus, which means he's one of a very few people she can actually let her "honor student" persona drop around. Ignoring Shinji (who, while "in the know" isn't really a magus) the only other one of those in the entire city is Kirei.
    Other than that, their characters are actually fairly compatible in general- they're both traditionalists, they both like taking care of people (even if Rin generally doesn't admit it), Shirou is a house-husband while Rin is a career lady...

    I know Shinji is handsome. It's Shirou having apparently plain looks, and Issei being more handsome than him that raises my eyebrows.

    I mean Shirou doesn't have plain looks going by art, it's just thats his rep in the VN itself. Or how i think of it. Shirou is kinda in background for his school life, which doesn't necessarily have to do with his appearance but with his personality. That's why i mentioned it because of how Shirou is Tohsaka doesn't like him because whether he's handsome or not because normally students wouldn't notice if he's there or not as he's going around doing stuff for people, so thus what Tohsaka likes about him has to do with other things then looks.

    True, those are good points- Letting her facade down would be a major selling point. So the attraction stems more from the personality rather than appearance, right?

    If we do say that Shirou attracts Rin because of personality and not looks, would she loose attraction if he didn’t have his six pack? It seems to be one of his defining characteristics. I mean he has it because he’s fit, but if Rin truly likes him for him she wouldn’t care that it’s not there right? He’d still be fit.

    Plenty people notice him though.

    Mostly when he has food.

    Issei is pretty much equal with Shinji in terms of popularity with girls iirc, Shirou on the other hand just kinda stumbles across girls who like him because he's an eroge protag

    It's been a while, but I don't think Issei's popularity or lack thereof was ever mentioned. Just that he's always stuck in the Student Council room doing Student Council things.

    it's not like he cooks for his school tho, so he remains unpopular since no one knows the heaven that is his kitchen.

    But that's another trait separate from appearance anyhow.

    I think Hollow mentioned something to that effect but I don't remember, thus not confident

    It's actually one of the First things we hear about him when he's introduced:

    He's the guy trying his best to reform this lax student council, and he's been a friend of mine since first year.
    His full name is Ryudou Issei.
    Despite his old-fashioned name, he has elegant features and he's really popular with the girls.
