+1 I think the same.
He's like several steps behind them, and even if he reaches them, it's too late, they've already made several moves forward and he still slacks off behind. It's just how I see his character, that's all.
About the ship tho. I never shipped Shirayuki with Zen to begin with. I don't even find both charas individually likeable.
I say Obi and Shirayuki moments, interactions are rather warm, sweet, interesting and fun to watch. And yes, I ship them. And after ep.5, I'm shipping it even harder - thanks to Obi's rage and strong determination to rescue Shirayuki.
Even though I love ZenYuki with all my heart, my heart tells me ObiYuki would also be a great ship together <3 I can't help myself from fangirling over little things like How Obi gets when Shirayuki touches his hands or how he's so overprotected of her ahhhh this ship must happen as well if Zen wasn't in the picture.

Actually there is a high chance for obiyuki becomimg the canon pairing. They just have soo much development in the manga, more than zenyuki itself. Although the main couple is zenyuki right now, but akizuki sure didn't develop obiyuki that much for no reason, there moments together are much more than zen and shirayuki. Maybe akizuki either changed her mind about zenyuki during working on AnS or just planned this from the start. I SHIP OBIYUKII it'ss faaaaar more interesting than zenyuki. What do you think guyss? (Sorry zenyuki fans xD) in the end the writer will definitely have to choose one pairing, gratifiy its fans and upset the other pairing's fans.
