ep 79 did leave me feeling better about their relationship. I currently do feel that they'd make for good friends but I'm still not convinced anything past that work would out in any long term capacity. I don't see what's to gloat about when they only ended up together as left overs. no one else wanted to pair up with. As I've said before, not having a good match doesn't mean you should just force yourself into accepting whats available, and that certainly doesn't mean they're a good match. Just look at otomie, her otp is clearly sakura but she was busy so otomie just had to move on to the next available person.
I stand by what I've said before. I still don't believe a relationship between those type of people would last. Kaede in an extrovert, Yurika is a introvert.
I think people who insist on preaching 'opposite attract' are short sighted individuals who are misunderstanding the concept. The idea refers to animals spreading genes for maximum diversity and healthy offspring and spreading genes is not something that two girls have to worry about. besides, most animals aren't monogamous which is what people forget when they go on about opposites attract. 'opposites attract' is just that 'attraction' it has no baring on staying power. It's easy to be attracted by something new and different, it's another thing for it to hold your interest.
Besides all that, if I remember correctly this discussion was basses on shipping. something that often tends to ignore cannon, and that's exactly what I plan on doing. Even if they're officially depicted as going steady I wouldn't accept it. It may sound like sour grapes but there's plenty of media that tries to force characters together even though they don't work. All the piss poor forced writing in the world wouldn't make them work in reality. They were clearly overcompensating for the character's incompatibility. Having Kaede drag Yurika around town for a day doesn't make them lovers. If anything the end of that ep felt more like a case of Stockholm syndrome than anything else.
