So, without further ado, let's get started.
Ochanimizu is sitting in a comfy chair, smiling while he holds a pad and pencil in hsi hands)
(Tenma meanwhile, is sitting opposite of him in a couchy psychatirsts patient's chair, looking indifferent to this entire operation)
O'Shay; What's wrong? I gave you a comfy chair like to asked.
Tenma; Is this really necessary?
O'Shay; Well that depends; do you want to maintain a good relationship with Astro?
(Tenma thinks this over for a minute before sighin in defeat)
O'Shay; Alright then, let's get started.

T: And what's THAT supposed to mean?
T: *sighes, looking away* I suppose that means I have to begin with Hoshie.
O: *looks directly into his eyes* Sounds logical

Tenma; I first met Hoshie in college, she was my seatmate in my neurology class.
O'Shay; Oh, I see; so you'd known each other from way back when.
Tenma; Yes. I admit, I thought she was pretty. But I really didn't talk to her much...that is until she began talking to me.
O'Shay; (chuckles) Well that makes sense, you've never exactly been much of a talker.
(Tenma gives O'Shay the death glare, causing shivers to tingle up his spine)
O'Shay; Uh...right...So, let's move on then...So, you mentioned that Hoshie started talking to you at that time.
Tenma; Yes. I don't really know why she took an interest in me though, maybe I was just her seat partner in teh beginning.
"Astro Forever" wrote:(Oh, cool topic!)
O'Shay: Why wouldn't she have been interested in you?
Tenma: Oh well, I liked to work on my little things, my machines... I didn't have much time left for girls.
O'Shay: Yet she remained around you...
Tenma: Yes. I think I impressed her with my creativity. She said I seemed to go beyond what she thought possible. It felt good to be finally able to share my discoveries with someone.
"Prettywitchiusaka" wrote:O'Shay; That's wonderful! So, eventually you warmed up to her, right?
Tenma; Well...yes...In fact, I think I noticed I was beginning to grow attached to ehr company once she began calling me...
(becomes silent, causing O'Shay to raise an eyebrow)
O'Shay; Yes, she called you...
(Tenma hesitates for a moment before taking a gulp to speak again)
O'Shay; Tarou-chan? (laughs) That seems about right!
(O'Shay continues to laugh, unaware of the anger forming on Tenma's face)
Tenma; You know, maybe I'll just be on my way-
O'Shay; No, no it's alright! (finally manages to calm himself down) Anyway, let's continue.
I agree on with you on the sympathy part Jeffbert, though I think even O'Shay has his limits depending on which version you look at.
If we're talking the 60 and 80's series, then I think Ochanimizu/O'Shay would defenitely feel the sympathy regarding tenma. If we're talking 03 series however, I honestly feel his sympathy would only decrease given Tenma's obsession with Astro/Atom in that particular version. After all, there's only so much you can take when you have one specific person comign after your loved a various different times.
