Okay guys, I think you're all focusing on the 'cousin' thing a bit too much. While it is important to note that, yes, in Japan, cousins can marry and it isn't looked down upon as much as in the West. Good bit of trivia.

However, this part is not relevant. At least, not nearly as much as some people would have you think.

Suguha actually did think that Kirito was her brother throughout her entire life up until the SAO incident, when she was twelve. I recommend looking up the Westermarck effect. In short, those that live near to you in your early years (it takes effect between birth to the age of six, so it's in effect here), become desensitised to sexual attraction to each other in later years.

So, for all intents and purposes, Suguha should still look up to Kirito as a brother. Possibly a distant brother, but still someone who she wouldn't dream of being in an intimate relationship with without being naturally repulsed.

So, yeah. Just wanted to clear this up.

Urg. For some reason I just don't like her.... 

For example the way she looked at Asuna and Kirito on the last ep... Just... URG.

Tootalls, cousins *thinking* about each other romantically isn't wrong. Cousins actually doing romantic things to each other can be wrong though.It isn't a sin to *think* of wrong things. Thinking about wrong things and being punished for it is called thought crime- which is extremely wrong, btw.

You can think of mass-murdering innocent and helpless 4 year-olds and i wouldn't really care. However, people will really start caring once you actually start *acting* on it and start showing your aggression towards kids.
