Does Otsu End Up With Musashi

Otsu (おつう, Otsū) is one of the main characters in the Vagabond manga series, and Musashi's main love interest. She is an orphan who grew up in Miyamoto village, and is childhood friends with Musashi (then Takezo) and Matahachi. Otsu is a classical Yamato Nadeshiko, or 'Japanese beauty' with a slender build, fair skin and large, expressive eyes. She has long hair usually tied up at the back, wears a kimono and sometimes a basket-hat. Otsu is kind, caring and independent, but she secretly desires intimacy and a loving family. She grows very attached to the people she cares for, such as Sekishusai Yagyu, whom she views as a grandfather, and Jotaro, who becomes like a little brother to her as well as Takuan, who she regards as an older brother or uncle. Before her stay at the Yagyu estate, Otsu, although shy and kind, was considered impolite due to her never learning proper formalities and manners as a result of her being an orphan who never had proper guidance. From a young age, Otsu was shy but was willing to stand up and defend people she loves as she constantly does for Musashi and at times, Matahachi. Musashi Miyamoto: Otsu and Musashi were childhood friends, and she has loved him ever since, but she was unaware of her feelings due to her betrothal to Matahachi.

Despite Musashi's commitment to the Way of the Sword, she continues to have feelings for him and tries to be there for him every step of the way. As a baby, she was abandoned in front of the Shippoji temple along with a flute. The monks took Otsu in while the Honiden family raised her with intentions of her marrying Matahachi. When Takezo returns to Miyamoto and begins killing the men hunting him, Takuan devises a plan to capture him with Otsu's help. Witnessing Takuan's cruel treatment of the captured and exhausted Takezo, Otsu takes pity on him and eventually helps him escape. She plans to leave Miyamoto with Takezo - now renamed Musashi - but Musashi declines saying she'll distract from his training. Following Musashi's rejection, Takuan brings Otsu into the service of the aging, Sekishusai, the patriarch of the Yagyu estate. There, Otsu learns proper manners and becomes a graceful young woman. Denshichiro Yoshioka arrives to challenge Sekishusai, but is rejected repeatedly.

Together they leave the Yagyu in pursuit of Musashi.

Otsu tells Sekishusai about Musashi, and he responds he once was young and vehement like him. Otsu meets Jotaro, who immediately reminds her of Musashi as a boy. She soon learns that Musashi is Jotaro's master. When Jotaro kills the Yagyu's guard-dog in revenge for attacking him, Musashi faces down several Yagyu disciples. It is Otsu's flute-playing that cools his bloodlust, and for a moment the two reunite, with Otsu confronting him over his desire to face Sekishusai. Later Otsu finds and comforts a lost Jotaro, who has been left behind by his master. Together they leave the Yagyu in pursuit of Musashi. Otsu and Jotaro overhear a gang of samurai planning to go after Musashi. When the men try to apprehend her and Jotaro, she is able to defend herself, styling herself as Sekishusai's granddaughter. She and Jotaro later encounter a sick Osugi and help care for her, although Otsu becomes angry when Osugi restates her hatred for her and Musashi. She attacks Osugi, but is stopped by Jotaro. Otsu and Jotaro are in Kyoto, and among the spectators for Musashi's duel with Denshichiro Yoshioka. When Musashi is victorious Jotaro is eager to reunite, but Otsu refuses. In the aftermath of Musashi's battle with the 70 Yoshioka students, Otsu tends to Musashi's wounds as he heals from his life-threatening injuries. Takuan tells Musashi that there's a possibility that he will never walk again and advices Musashi to marry Otsu and live happily. Musashi refuses to do so. Otsu plays the flute quite well, and would do so for Sekishusai during her time with him. Her flute playing managed to draw Musashi to her after his fight with the Yagyu disciples. She has some knowledge of self-defence, learned during her time with the Yagyu. She is able to defend herself against a group of ronin trying to intimidate her and Jotaro.

Scott Shelly ( Hangul:셸리 ) is one of the female protagonists in the webtoon. She begins a one-sided relationship with Jay at the start of the series but as the story progress they have a mutual crush on each other and as of chapter 378 they are in a relationship. Shelly is the only female member of the Humming Bird Crew. Because she stayed at England before coming to Korea her personality is perceived as very headstrong. She does not like it when people talk badly about her friends, especially Jay. Shelly also has a lot of stamina and strength, she can keep up with the group's pace when racing and can actually send people flying with her punch (Although that may be for comedic reasons) but never got into the street fights with the guys of the crew. When she was hit on in her first appearance on the series she refused with a lot of sass. Mia described her as someone who can confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Although her words are harsh, it is because she never sugar coated her words with her friends. And with Jay, Shelly is very clingy and flirtatious. She has very foreign features: pale skin, her eyes actually look more mint green in color than blue, blond wavy hair. It is known later in the series that she has a tattoo in the side of her arm near the wrist that reads out "temet nosce" or "Know Thyself". At school she wears her uniform usually without the red vest and both wears the skirt and pants.

She is often seen wearing high-end brand clothing, but also occasionally wearing street wear and tomboyish clothes. When riding her bike, she usually wears a jacket and helmet with the same color as her eyes or the Hummingbird crew's hood. She is tall, with long thin legs, a small waist and a bigger bust. Not much is known about Shelly, but it is established that she is from England and she requested to transfer to Sunny High School because of Jay. It was told in an early episode (Ep. 27) that she will be in Korea for one semester. Shelly is the granddaughter of Sunny High School's principal, Nick. When Shelly was a kid, she didn't want to get married and promised Nick that she will just live with him forever, which caused Nick to think that Shelly is not interested to guys until she got interested in Jay. That also caused the over protectiveness of her grandfather. Jay saw what happened and chased the thieves to get her purse back. She refused on taking him to the hospital but Jay refused. She picked up his student ID that had fallen to the ground and, motivated by her encounter with Jay, called her grandfather, asking him to let her attend Sunny High School. Her second meeting with Jay was in their classroom. She kissed him out of the blue and the gossip that Shelly and Jay were in a relationship quickly spread around the school.

When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her.

When Jay, Dom and Minu got suspended, Shelly visited them and scolded Dom and Minu badly about how Jay got caught with their actions. Jay got pissed and told her to screw off, she ended up crying and running away. When Jay was about to say sorry, he got a pink rose from Minu, saying that he should give it to her. He couldn't and Shelly went on saying that she'll forgive him if he became her boyfriend for a week and Jay agreed. She joined Hummingbird as the only female on the team, she continued to flirt with Jay and when Jay was teaching Mia how to ride a bike, she kept on intervening and wanting him to teach her even though she knows how. On a special episode, Shelly was seen riding a bike in Jay's neighborhood. Minu and Kay noticed her, Kay was thinking of who might Shelly go out with and ended up being shocked that it was his brother. In the last scene, Jay and Shelly are resting after riding their bike together, and she comments that Jay suits biking more than studying. The Preliminaries for the League of Street has started, only Dom and Jay were able to race at the first two rounds. After that, they found out that Jay's birthday was near and planned to celebrate it. She didn't showed up at school on his birthday because she was the one who prepared the gift that they got for him.

When the boys with the worried June except Jay planned to give Jay a strong alcoholic drink, they didn't expect Shelly to drink it, thinking it was juice. They are dumb-founded and later on, a drunk Shelly came closer to Jay and told her how she was hurt by his actions and proceeding to kiss him the second time. They pulled Shelly of Jay who was already littered with kiss marks. Mia was the one who brought Shelly home, when she was sober enough, Mia asked her if she liked Jay which she answered yes. Mia told her how she envied her for being able to confidently express her thoughts and feelings. Shelly answered that she doesn't understand Mia's concern and told her an advice to start believing in herself more and learning to love herself. This pushed Mia to contact the modeling agency that reached out to her. Before the race, Shelly was being hit on by a member of the Bullet Crew who will be racing against them. The glasses guy kept on hitting on her even when she's denying him. Vinny came to her rescue and punched the guy when he didn't stop.

That led to the glasses guy to take drugs to have a revenge against the Hummingbird Crew. Shelly took the lead until he passes the baton to June. As the race ended, she tried to kiss Jay in his sleep but he moved and she wasn't able to do so. She also took the test with Minu and Dom since, in a sense, she is still a student at Sunny High. When Mia was modeling, a bunch of girls kept on talking about her, gossiping about Mia like dating an old guy or having a sugar daddy to be able to model. Shelly obviously tried to help her. Yuna and Shelly later on went to Mia's house in hopes that they could get her to come to school. On the way riding a bus, a guy came up on her behind and was hitting on her, she shut him down while cursing, very contrasting of her appearance. When Yuna, Mia and Shelly were talking at the park near Mia's house, Shelly started saying something harsh to Mia, although it is a way to actually let Mia see what's happening beyond her room which she choose to lock herself with. Yuna reprimanded Shelly, saying she was too harsh and Mia broke down but then was silent at what Shelly said. After that talk, the three of them came at Heri's bike shop so that Mia can say thank you.
