Does Sword Art Online Have Romance

From the start, Sword Art Online is practically all about the relationships laced throughout, be them romantic, familial or simply that of unbreakable friendship. At the beginning of being trapped inside of the death game, Asuna fought without any regard for her own life, and it was the relationships she later formed that helped her change. She was able to realize that not only should she be treating her own life as something more precious, but that she needed to buckle down and train seriously if she was to make her goal liberating everyone trapped within Aincrad. Although the positive effects of relationships are focused on for many of the series' interactions, that doesn't mean it shies away from more twisted relations. It's actually quite the opposite, to the point where some of the worst and creepiest relationships portrayed upset many fans due to how they were handled. With such fame- and infamy- surrounding the biggest relationships within the series, it's no wonder that fans tend to have strong opinions regarding them. It's utterly impossible to bring up the conversation of pairings within the series without going over the staple ship, Kirito and Asuna. Their relationship is the foundation for Asuna learning to value her own life more, and it's highly likely that she'd have turned out to be a completely different person if she hadn't let him into her heart.

The two support each other no matter what, and show each other parts of life that the other hadn't even considered before. They're not only the most popular pairings within the series, but one of the most beloved and represented pairings by fans in all of anime. Although Asuna is able to benefit from some of the best relationships throughout the series, she's sadly also subject to some of the worst. She was arranged to be married to Sugou Noboyuki, a chief of research at RECT. Inc.. Of course, Asuna detested this idea and refused to go along with it, so he decided to simply lock her within a gigantic bird cage in virtual reality. The real Asuna was in a coma the entire time, and he toyed with her in some of the most uncomfortable scenes in the entire series. This arc is also generally detested by fans for turning Asuna's former strong-female-lead role into a damsel-in-distress. Although Asuna and Lisbeth originally had a bit of tension between them due to both liking Kirito, their friendships blossomed into one of the strongest and most loyal in the series.

Lisbeth is one of the few who's shown to be able to crack Asuna's typically serious exterior, as she teases her about crushing on Kirito when Asuna comes in to pick up a custom-made blade. Asuna was actually the person who suggested both Lisbeth's blacksmith outfit design as well as her dying her hair to pink, showing she trusts her to handle matters like this. Leafa and Kirito are not-exactly-siblings, as Kirito was adopted into the family, but their relationship is still very much played as a familial one. This makes the romantic feelings that blossom toward Kirito on Leafa's behalf incredibly creepy, especially since she'd be aware of him being technically married to Asuna. It'd be one thing if she developed a crush on his in-game avatar without knowing the truth, and later would be disgusted upon learning that it was actually her brother. However, Leafa is aware of this- and how inappropriate it is- the entire time, and their relationship simply isn't handled well. Even when viewing these two in a strictly platonic sense, there's a lot to love about the way that Kirito and Sinon compliment each other. Although she suffered through immense trauma in reality, Sinon is a calm-yet-fiery competitor who takes pride in her skills, and the two are incredibly enjoyable to watch compete. Kirito was also to reach her in reality before she could have been assaulted- or worse- killed.

He helps her get over her fear of death as well as her trauma surrounding guns, overall being a positive influence in her life. It's sadly impossible to mention one of Sinon's healthiest relationships without mentioning her worst. Kyouji was the friend who originally introduced her to Gun Gale Online, and the two seemed to be somewhat close- but he harbored an incredibly creepy crush on her that bordered on obsessive. He crosses the line at the end of her main arc, where he breaks into her apartment and confesses his love for her, with things turning violent after she refuses him. However, Sinon is shown to be overly forgiving, as she later states she wants to see him in the hospital and help change him for the better. Yuuki is the main person, alongside Kirito, who helped Asuna shape her life for the better. They met when Asuna accepted a challenge from Yuuki to duel her in one of the more interesting fights in the season, as both of them are incredibly talented swordswomen. Yuuki is a character who lived on borrowed time in the real-world, but this didn't stop her from living every day to the fullest. This helped Asuna care about her own life more, and she promised to carry on fighting for Yuuki's happiness even after her passing. The 'harem' trope is one that's been in anime for about as long as its inception, and it can work when the male lead is single and it's mostly played for comedic purposes. However, very early on, the series makes it a point to focus heavily on the bond Kirito has with Asuna- the two even get married in-game.

Despite this, though, the series insists on throwing flirtatious or humorous moments in with the rest of the female cast members that only come off as hard-to-watch. Other characters will often get incredibly flustered around Kirito or make suggestive comments that neither he or Asuna would let slide if it wasn't for anime logic. Although the two aren't together for very long, the bond that Sachi has with Kirito is incredibly heartwarming. She's incredibly unconfident in her own abilities, and the fear of permanent death looming over her head doesn't help this. Kirito is able to help give her some newfound courage in an incredibly memorable scene, but it's sadly crushed soon after when the guild is lured into a trap and Sachi unforutunately loses her life. This has a heavy impact on Kirito and he even tries to revive her using an item drop from a legendary boss, but it was far too late. Although their relationship does begin to improve much later on during the series, most of what fans see is uncomfortable at best and downright upsetting at worst. Throughout the Aincrad arc where Asuna was arranged to get married, her mother didn't seem to show any emotion on the matter, other than the fact she was 'thinking about Asuna's future'.

This list describes characters from the anime and manga series Doraemon. Also listed are their original NTV voice actors (1973), followed by their TV Asahi voice actors (1979-2005; 2005-present). Part of the 22nd century characters are listed in The Doraemons. Each main character represents a primary school student archetype. Nobita appears in every episode of the anime, while Doraemon appears in most episodes, sometimes being substituted (for medical checkup or on leave) by his sister, Dorami. Note: In some translations of Doraemon, the names of these characters are different from the original names. 2.9 Nobisuke Nobi Jr. Albert in the Cinar dub of the series, is the title character and co-protagonist of the series. He is a cat-like robot from the future. He was yellow-skinned and had ears originally. However, his ears were accidentally eaten by a robot mouse. It left him heartbroken and caused his skin to turn blue. People often mistake him for a raccoon dog. He is sent back in time by Sewashi (Nobita's Great-great-grandson) to aid Nobita. Doraemon possesses a 4-dimensional pocket from which he can acquire various kinds of futuristic tools, gadgets, and playthings from a future department store.

He has also been shown to date with normal female cat.

He also has the tendency to panic during emergencies, characterized by him frantically trying to pull out a very much-needed tool from his pocket, only to produce a huge assortment of household items and unwanted gadgets. Still, Doraemon is very friendly and intelligent, not to mention long-suffering because of Nobita's antics. Since Sewashi sent Doraemon to the past, Doraemon has been living as the unofficial fourth member of Nobita's family and acts like a second son to Nobita's parents, since despite being a robot, he requires basic needs for a person, such as eating, and also sleeps in the closet of Nobita's bedroom. He also fears mice greatly (due to a robot mouse having eaten his ears), even go crazy about it and pull out devastating gadgets, and most of the times, Nobita saves Doraemon in such situations. Although he has no fingers in most media, he can hold things because of the suction cups in his hands. His favorite food is Dorayaki. He has also been shown to date with normal female cat. He is the elder brother of Dorami.

Nobita Nobi (野比, Nobi Nobita, English dub: Sidney in the Cinar dub, Specky in the Speedy dub, and Noby Nobi in the Bang Zoom! dub) is the co-protagonist of the series. He wears glasses, a red or yellow polo shirt with a white collar, and blue or black shorts and white socks and light blue shoes. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting. He is usually accompanied by Doraemon, who functions as his caretaker. Although he's not good at sports, he's good at shooting and has been reflected in the movies many time. He's also good at string figure which sometime considered a girls' game. Son of Tamako and Nobisuke Nobi. Future father of Nobisuke (his son). Future husband or boyfriend of Shizuka and great-great-grandfather of Sewashi. Taurus), nicknamed Shizuka-chan (しずかちゃん) is a smart, kind and pretty girl. She is often represented by the color pink, and is seen wearing a pink shirt and skirt.

The word 'Shizuka (しずか)' means 'Quiet'. She is Nobita's best friend. She does not shun Nobita due to his failing grades, lazy disposition or constant failures. In fact, she often tries to encourage him to do better, though she usually fails to convince him. Shizuka likes to take a bath several times a day; however, a running gag in the series is that she is sometimes interrupted by a sudden appearance of Nobita (sometimes Doraemon, Gian, or Suneo) usually due to misuse of Doraemon's gadgets like the Anywhere Door (Doko Demo Doa in Japanese). Shizuka's skirt is also frequently seen getting flipped, either by Nobita misusing Doraemon's gadgets, or by the wind. Scenes in which her underwear is seen, or she is seen bathing, have been removed from the dubbed versions, especially in India, Europe, the United States and the United Kingdom. Her true passions are sweet potatoes, which she would rather keep to herself out of the knowledge of others, and the violin, in which her playing is just as horrendous as Gian's singing. She is also known for taking piano lessons unwillingly due to her mother's wishes (as she loves violin more), which is sometimes a reason for declining to hang out with friends (but she plays piano better than violin). Shizuka is an animal lover and keeps two pets at home: a dog, who is saved from succumbing to illness by Nobita and Doraemon in one story; and a canary which runs away on multiple occasions and causing Shizuka and Nobita to run around the city chasing her down.

She sometimes fansies some handsome idols on TV. Besides Nobita, Shizuka is also close to her classmate and popular student Dekisugi. Though they consider each other only as friends. Gemini), named Buster in the Cinar dub and Bob in the Speedy dub, usually known by the nickname "Gian" (「ジャイアン」, "Jaian", English: Big G) is a strong and quick-tempered local bully. He also frequently steals other children's stuff (especially Nobita's and Suneo's) under the pretext of "borrowing" them, unless the toy is damaged. He is known for his awful singing voice, though he considers himself a great singer. To prove this, Gian sometimes "invites" others to attend his concerts, under the threat of beatings. His singing is so horrible that, once, Nobita and Doraemon try to mute it in a silent world, his writings of the song lyrics in a board end up having the same effect as when they hear them.Though his voice is terrible in one of the episodes it was shown that a girl liked his singing. In some films, his singing is enhanced to become an effective weapon (as in 'Nobita's Great Adventure in the South Seas'). In some episodes when his voice is recorded and he hears it, he instantly denies it being his voice and threatens to beat up the person who his songs in a very bad way (which is an irony).
