Amusingly, if the translations on the audio dramas are any indication, Asemu apparently isn't Arisa's type at all. The chemistry people are seeing in the sibling is more like brother-sister than romantic.ShadowCell wrote:Arisa slapped Asemu's ass once and as we all know that's all it takes
at any rate seeing as how Asemu and Arisa are both evidently married and not to each other and have both produced offspring i'm pretty sure that ship has been torpedoed in port
Which, when you think about it, does make some sense.
Granted, the butt-slap seems a bit odd, until you consider that, as Arisa explained, that's just something they do in her family.
That said, this is just another one of those reasons I'm not that big of a fan of Bandai's love affair with cross-media saturation at this point. It's getting a little too common to hear "You'd know that if you bought the CD/manga/game/etc that explained it" when they should be able to address it in the show in the first bloody place.
