❤ Kurosaki Ichigo – Orihime is very much in love with Ichigo Kurosaki. She has always regarded him as both a close comrade and nakama. She cares for him so deeply she wishes to protect him from any harm that may come his way, and also feels physical pain when he experiences sadness. However, her love for him causes her distress as much as it inspires her, as she often feels a great deal of insecurity and self-loathing due to her jealousy over his bond with Rukia Kuchiki. Above all else, Orihime puts Ichigo’s happiness before her own, wanting him to to find happiness whether it is with her or someone else.
❤ Yatsutora Sado – Orihime feels nothing but warmth and gratitude towards her gentle giant of a friend, Sado. In the past, he has trained with her, fought by her side, and provided her not only protection but support when Orihime needed it most. She admires his strength and finds his regard for her as a comrade moving. Despite the fact she left Karakura Town, Orihime has never once stopped thinking about nor missing his presence in her life.
