Quote from Malwing
Yes I find Reiji creepy. to hell with Rin's feelings you're sopposed to report suspicions like that. He feels like he's threatening to turn this funny manga into a psychologically scarring manga.
It's more complicated than that. It's probably a little bit out of everybody's understanding, but getting a little closer here. Here goes:
(HUGE SPOILER, AVOID IF YOU HAVEN'T READ CHAPT 6-8 YET)
Spoiler (highlight to view)
Aoki knows that the situation is VERY dangerous. the very last thing Rin said to Aoki after telling him that she was marrying Reiji was "If you say anything bad about Reiji, It'll be you who is going to be arrested..." puts things in a complete standstill. If he were to say anything to authorities about the situation, Rin could simply spout lies directly involving Aoki and her together (which would be easily supported due to prior incidents.) The onlything that would do is completely trap Rin; She would have no more reason/ encouragement to escape Reiji anymore.
Can anybody else see why this would be bad?
Furthermore, if Aoki actually HAD evidence, It would be likely
that both Aoki and Reiji would be carted off, then Rin would have nothing. No home, no family, Would probably be put into the hands of an establishment, which means she might even have to change schools. Could you envision Rin alone, again, almost in the same passive, lifeless condition as she was when she first came to Futsubashi? Losing another big chunk of her life?
Some say even this would be better than Rin with Reiji, but if either one of the above occured (almost guaranteed if info is spilt) there would be no way to get Rin free of her own curse. (not to mention, Reiji's own being impressed on her.) I've read far enough, and now I'm happy he did what he did, and how he did it (which he himself might not understand) although when I first read that chapter, like you, I really felt sick with the thought of having to sit and wait and see what might happen with Rin and Reiji.

In every effort there is a reason, in every goal an effort, in every life a great goal. The questions are false and misleading, for it is not the goal that matters, it is the reason, because reasons will apply to all that exists, and all that will. What is your reason for what you are doing now? For what you did yesterday? Always ask this, for it makes up nothing less than the very essence of your soul. I mean, unless it doesn't exist 0_o
