"Sipping" is not a talent that Asuka understands or care about.

Asuka appears to be the embodiment of Spartan living.

Okay, so Roland and Asuka are damn near complete opposites.

Roland seems to be more of a free spirit, and Asuka is tuned and focused...can this even work out?

Most relationships end badly with someone getting their feelings hurt. And that's bad enough. But here, with characters living in a world so full of strange, ending badly could just as easily mean someone got mauled by an off-dimensional creature wearing an 'I am a Cthulhu finger puppet' tee-shirt.

They do seem like opposites, but I think that is part of the attraction between them. They both respect each other's fighting prowess. But they may see something in the other that they want, or want to be. Remember Asuka's little shower fantasy? She is disciplined, focussed, to the point where she is almost a machine... but she's still human, with humans drives, urges, and emotions. Roland, while just as skilled as she, is as you say, more of a free spirit.
I think that Asuka would love to have that kind of freedom while retaining her skills, and Roland appreciates her dedication and stoicism.
Who is to say what attracts anyone to anyone? Ah well. This is a great story, so let's see where the cards fall.

I think the fighting arts is the one thing they both have in common, right now, anyway.

Hopefully they can build on that mutual respect and have a lasting relationship.

Having said that, its been my sad experience that while opposites attract, its often the very same thing that splits them up again.

This is my favorite conversation :'D

I think (and hope) you two like where I'm going with the end of the chapter!

Asuka seems to follow the student diet.

All that's missing is some Mac and Cheese and ramen!

So much ramen.

Don't forget canned chilli. Silverado beef with a bit of leftover salsa from last weekends nachos. Divine

She'll be lucky to have an aftertaste.

I'm not entirely convinced she knows what that is! I mean, she is not striking me as a connoisseur of anything (except maybe ways to fight and kill people) :P

Something tells me she's going to want that whole bottle. XD
