Personally, I'm going to have to say out of the two, I would want her to ultimately be with Takumi, AFTER he's done some serious reforming, of course. I love Nobu, but I find Hachi and Takumi's tragic romance captivating.

Though, I think it could also be great if she left Takumi and didn't end up with anyone else. Or if she died (okay, that sounded horrible). But I'm a sucker for unexpected tragic endings.

If she does end up with, Takumi, though, I don't want it to be a happy thing.

Very difficult question...
I absolutely adore Nobu and he loves Hachi with all of his heart. But I think Hachi needs someone tough, someone who can make her a bit harder. True, Takumi might be too hard for her, but she grew when she was with him, she became more independant and that's what she needs. Nobu might be too soft.
But now she has toughened up, it would be nice she could return to Nobu. He can provide for her now he is the owner of his fathers auberge and he's the father of Ren [spoiler] so why not?
But Takumi gave up a lot and has a serious job now and he loves Ren so much, so he has changed I think.

Takumi, always Takumi. I adore Nobu, it's easy to tell how much he loves Hachi ... but ... I just think Takumi and Hachi compliment each other better than Hachi and Nobu.

Nobu is the sweetest guy ever, but he's too sweet. Hachi is lovely too, but she is also a very sweet person. I think she'd be better off with someone ... firmer, who could scold her when she needs to be scolded.

And the chemistry between Takumi and Hachi kills me. Nobu pulls at my heart strings, but Takumi is just ... too captivating to end up with anyone else!

I honestly don't understand how people can approve for Hachi's relationship with Takumi. It is very clear that he does not give her what can truly make her happy.
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
She basically settled with him to marry him so that she did not have to disrupt Nobu's life of wanting to fulfill his dream of becoming a famous musician with Nana, because she would have taken that away from him if she decided to be with him. Although I feel Hachi had been incredibly selfish in wanting to raise the child due to her "maternal instinct", she was also able to give Takumi the "family" that he wanted to return to for the 10% of his life that wasn't business-related.

I guess I kind of have the views of a feminist in the sense that I find it horribly unappealing and degrading to drop everything in order to live as a man's object (especially when he is unfaithful and doesn't truly give her the love she wants and deserves as a human being). He may *sort of* love Hachi, but the "love" she gets from Takumi is basically all he is able to give her, which I don't find to be enough for someone to want to stay with him. No matter what, she will never be more important to him than Reira or his work, and I just think that he doesn't deserve to have someone there like that for him because of his priorities in life.


Thus, I look at Nobu as the perfect solution to literally ALL of Hachi's problems. With Takumi, she continues to feed her own selfish desire, but when she was with Nobu, she actually wanted to do things for him and treat him well. I want Hachi to smarten the f*** up and just accept that she will never find true happiness with Takumi and get a divorce with him so that she can be with Nobu. Being with someone like him isn't an unrealistic solution, as once he had become more established as a musician with BLAST, getting married wouldn't really hold him back from his career, and he would have the means to financially support someone else (i.e. Hachi). I don't think Nobu would truly be happy without her, and I don't think she would truly be happy with Takumi, so why the hell not already?? After he is done with his music career (short-lived because of BLAST's disbandment, since he didn't want to play with anyone besides Nana in the first place) Nobu has nothing keeping him from his family's ryokan, and Hachi can live there with him and her child.

Quite frankly, I'm so sick and tired of everybody making Nobu out to be some kind of hero when he's not. He's so spineless! Like when he found out that Hachi was pregnant, he didn't even try to take responsibiility for his actions. Sure it might not be his, but he didn't even suggest taking a DNA test. Come on, seriously! He needs to man up big time. He practically abandoned Hachi. And then he has the gall to say that she has always loved Takumi more. Well, why shouldn't she Nobu? Especially when you walked out on her when she needed you the most. Not to mention the fact that the next day he acted all fine and dandy.

I seriously hope the kid is Takumi's; the kid needs a reliable parent. And if it is Nobu's, I hope they tell the kid that his dad walked out on him to "pursue his dreams". Now I know you can say that Hachi chose Takumi, but Nobu didn't even try to fight for her, whereas, Takumi took care of the kid even when there was a chance the kid wasn't his.

Conscerning Hachi, I understand she needs love, but one of the main reasons she agreed to be with Takumi was that he provides for her and her child, but yet she complains when he's trying to make the means to do so.

Also, consider the situation from Takumi's eyes: Your girl is only with you because you can provide for her and her child. Meanwhile, she has "forsaken" herself so that her lover can continue pursuing his dreams. Yeah...Really heart-warming there Hachi.

Don't get me wrong, I totally agree that Takumi shouldn't cheat, but don't make him out to be the only bad one in the relationship. Hachi even said herself that she was afraid of Nobu finding out about the bad stuff in her (basicly, she felt she had to be perfect all the time). She also said that Takumi wasn't perfect and that he accepted her for her imperfections.
