Yes, and no.

She does not have Asperger's Syndrome. But she is on that spectrum. Specifically, she has http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schizoid_p ... y_disorder

Her path shows that love can cross any barrier. Hisao and Rin made it work. That's why her route is so unique. No other piece of literature tried doing this and yet, this VN got it absolutely perfect. That's what makes her path the best.

That looks more accurate, Rin has a lot of the symptoms.
If Rin is Schizoid, then Hanako is slightly Schizotypal, mostly on "the anxiety in social situations" part, and Kenji is totally a Schizotypal, borderlining the schizophrenia.

Definitely. I have Aspergers myself, and can give you another reason as to why she is. And she doesn't really refer to herself specifically, really, like in the scene where they go to the "Worry Tree." "This me couldn't do it."
See, she said that she doesn't really know who she is. I can only speak from personal experience, but... Well. Frankly, I feel as if I switch personalities every half year. I can't seem to figure out who I am either. Both in a philosophical, and literal sense. I go by "Tristan" sometimes, "Stan" on others, and sometimes my middle name, "Alexander."
It literally depends on my mood.

Oh wow, I guess that's why I am so into Rin, I'm a diagnosed Schizoid.

But she doesn't show any signs of hand flapping.

On some websites, I'm 'Keiichi', while on others, I'm 'Rinku'. And sometimes, I'm just a tree. Does that make me an Aspie??
