Wondering if I'm the only one who prefers to think of the relationship between Jr. and MOMO as big brother/little sister and gets quite creeped out if I think otherwise.

Jr. only looks twelve, but has the mentality of a much older man. True, he does sometimes act twelve, but mostly he has the mentality of someone much older (because of course he is much older). MOMO looks twelve and acts twelve. I saw no real maturity growth from her as the series went on and I didn't really expect to.

True, Xenosaga III hints that MOMO can be put into an adult body and bear a child, but unless they can also up the age of her mentality I still find it to be quite creepy.

And yes, Xenosaga II shows Jr. had feelings for Sakura, but he was actually twelve at that point in time. I don't believe his feelings for Sakura transferred to MOMO in the same way.

MOMO is Xenosaga's obligatory 'loli' character. They probably scripted her interactions with other characters with the intent of making it as creepy as possible.

That aside, I never really liked the Jr./MOMO paring.

Personally I only found a possible romantic relationship between Jr. and MOMO creepy. I didn't find her interactions with the others creepy. Wait... scratch that... the whole scene with Albedo in Xenosaga I was pretty creepy. But then again Albedo is always creepy... XD

I only played Xenosaga I.

However, the whole Momo/Jr thing didn't creep me out. Because both of their origin is explained. They're not humans like you and I. They were created differently, so it's not surprising that they would live differently. They'll look that way for the rest of their lives anyway.

I don't see how them not being human is remotely relevant. And Xenosaga III hints that they won't in fact look twelve for the rest of their lives.

Then what are you complaining about? If they grow up, then I don't see the problem with the Jr/Momo pairing. In fact, there are plenty of twelve year old boys and girls who like each other romantically anyway. I don't see the point of this thread, so I'll move on.

As I said in my original post, unless they find a way to up the age of MOMO's mentality it wouldn't matter that she was in an adult body. She'd just be a twelve year old in an adult body, which I'd still find creepy.

Also, as I pointed out earlier, Jr. is not a twelve year old boy. Two twelve year olds who like each other romantically is not creepy to me. A twelve year old girl and a twenty-six or so year old man who like each other romantically (which is what Jr. and MOMO would be if I perceived their relationship as romantic) is creepy to me.

And you didn't see the point of this thread because you didn't really bother to stop and read my posts thoroughly and think on them :)

I think they'll only be friends. Not just because of age difference but because Jr. still likes Sakura(if it's stated in the game that he got over it tell me where please). Jr. was mainly protecting and becoming friends with Sakura's little sister like he promised and the friendship with Momo happened to be a good one.
