Canonically, there's only one pairing in RW-- Mukara ans Nadia-- but as someone who could never ship the guys and discovered years and years ago that I have a definite penchant for the ladies, I've been playing more and more with aged up! Kayura and Nasutei as a thing. (Because the fact that Kayura is physically 12 is not something I'm going to just ignore.)
So how would that work, being as Kayura is a monk, in the Netherworld and essentially busy re-building the spiritual metropolis of the world after the end of season 2?
But Kayura is more or less the only connection Nasutei has left to Shuten (and no, I never saw that as romantic either, but something intense and transcendent in it's own right that is cut horrifically short) and I can see her transferring that bond, because she needs to, because what she went through with Shuten was unique from what was going on with the Troopers and it's not something she could easily explain to them because they just weren't there.
So the two end up with this relationship that may or may not be something more than what Nasutei had with Shuten, and because the religious take on romantic love in Shintoism and Buddhism is intensely complex it just has the potential to be this amazing thing that I've always played with exploring at some point or another.
