Akane's on the rebound, she may be a tad desperate at first and may not have considered all of her options when she decided to get back into the dating scene, as Ryoga will discover.

There was a throwaway line in chapter one which said Ryoga had "brain surgery" to fix his sense of direction.  It's a cheap literary tool, but I'm tired of Ryoga/Akane fics (what few there are) that tend to get bogged down in Ryoga's curse and sense of direction.  The curse will be dealt with later in more detail and consequneces.

They haven't really "succeeded" yet.  Akane's more emotionally fragile than she's letting on, and Ryoga, who is pretty slow-witted at times, will soon get to experience the joys of dealing with a girlfriend who's not all there at the moment.
