    Okay, sorry about the denial thing. :wink

    I heard right now the theory, and to me it explains everything weird Asuma
    has done in the last few days.

    Asuma has changed big way, so something really big happened to him.
    We could assume he "knew" or "felt" he was going to die, but that's a bit
    hard for me to swallow. So what? What made him suddenly understand
    the Sandaime's words? Why did he suddenly say that the Sandaime was
    the best of fathers? Why is this sudden stress on his relationship with Kurenai?
    The relation is not really something new, it's been hinted at at least once
    (Kakashi asking if they were on a date, of course denied as always)
    and it was apparent quite common knowledge, judging from Ino's memories
    of Asuma buying flowers for Kurenai.

    Gee, I wonder what could be possibly the thing in a love relationship that
    suddenly makes you go all serious, think about life in general and your parents
    in particular? That makes you go all responsible about things, and makes you
    stop smoking?

    Here are my arguments:
    - Not quite long ago, Kurenai interrupted Kakashi and Asuma because
    she had something to tell Asuma. That's a quite usual setup in stories for a girl
    to tell a guy she's pregnant
    - It is quite obvious his relationship with Kurenai suddenly took an important turn.
    I doubt they only slept together now. What's the next step?
    - The main theme of the manga has always been to have precious people to fight for.
    It was also the main teaching of the Sandaime. These are most certainly the
    words of the Sandaime Asuma finally understood
    - Who could be these people Asuma would fight for? Konoha's been there all along,
    he didn't seem to care to much about that. Ditto for Naruto. There is a lot of insistance
    about him and Kurenai (we also see Kurenai right after his death) Why would he
    suddenly care so much more about Kurenai? Did he only now fall in love after all
    this time? There must be somebody new, or an important reason for him to find
    Kurenai important. Or as it may be, both at once
    - The reason Asuma thanked the Sandaime for being the best of fathers is that he
    now understands what it means to be a father
    - He stopped smoking. Of course, it is supposed to be bad for the baby if the mother
    smokes, or if somebody smokes around her

    I have no special reason to think it's a boy, apart that a boy would be in a kind of
    karmic way the reincarnation of Asuma, and a girl would just be a copy of Kurenai.

    So there! Go for Asuma x Kurenai :wOOt

    I probably won't start thinking about it's gender until we find out for sure that she is pregnant.

    If she's just on her period I wonder how many people will be disappointed?

    that would be a nice commemoration after Asuma's death fo him to have a descendan t and everything, and Kurenai could give the child the surname of Sarutobi in Asuma's honor.

    I doubt simply for the reason that Naruto isn't entirely a shojo-fest.

    I'm somewhat convinced that she's pregnant. From the looks of it, she's been staying at home for a while.

    I think they where about to get married. And when asuma visited asuma in the hospital b4 they were interupted by kurenai, Asuma was about to ask kakashi to be his best man...

    If it exists (where's the evidence in the chapter exactly? It sounds like it all came from spoiler speculation) then it'll be a boy, more specifically the Akatsuki leader before he goes crazy and travels back in time to collect bijuu.

    Kurenai being pregnant is mere fan speculation.

    Twins (a male and a female) would be cool. We hadn't see twins in Naruto yet (well, except Sakon and Ukon...).

    While I do like the idea of Asuma and Kurenai as a couple, I think that it might just be wishful thinking to think that she's pregnant.

    If she is, although I'd like it to be a girl, it will likely be a boy because in Naruto girls are apparently lesser beings.

    Having babies doesn't make something shoujo. Look at Dragonball and Kenshin. O_o And babies aren't a popular shoujo story element anyway. Try boys who treat girls like crap or verbally insult them and that somehow makes the girl go googly-eyed over them.

    Not true. Babies rock. It's pregnant women that make for bad story telling. Unless they're carrying the spawn of Satan or something.

    I just about died when I saw this. Oh Kisame, you sly dog, you! Asuma's ghost will be sure to come back to have some words for Kurenai about that one.

    I don't think she is. Dont you think that Asuma would strive to live alot more if he new that he had a baby on the way?

    but....if she is I want it to be a boy.
