another is bare acknoweldgment. :-) For instance, Card Captor Sakura is a
perfect example. In the manga Tomoyo makes it fairly plain that she has
designs on Sakura. In the anime, she is simply admiring and obsessed. It
makes sense to interpret that as desire/attraction, but it can just as
easily be passed off as hero worship.

interpretation, that it's ocassionally frustrating. For every Haruka and
