Absolutely! In fact, in episode 11, Clara even confesses that she is willing to marry him. Although their initial friendship is based on their mutual love of pranks and mischief, Clara’s feelings for Iruma have deepened over time.
It’s not difficult to understand why Clara has fallen for Iruma. Iruma is a kind and genuine person who has won over many of the characters in the show with his sincerity and good nature. Clara, in particular, seems to be drawn to Iruma’s authenticity and the way he treats everyone around him with kindness and respect.
In the previous episodes of Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun, Clara has displayed multiple hints of genuine and cute admiration towards the kind-hearted and charismatic protagonist of the anime series, Iruma. Whenever Iruma comforts her or pays her a compliment, Clara is frequently observed blushing, indicating her fondness for him.
Among the trio, Clara is recognized for her mischievous tendencies and chaotic behavior that frequently cause trouble for the group. She is quick to initiate various activities that she finds entertaining, even if they are risky. Nevertheless, Iruma remains by Clara’s side throughout their journey, refusing to abandon her despite her troublesome conduct. This loyalty from Iruma has caused Clara to develop romantic feelings toward him.
Clara Meets Iruma for the First Time
One of the most important events that led Clara to like Iruma lies in their adorable friendship. As evident in the 3rd episode of Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun, Clara had her first conversation with Iruma when she was seen stacking and tackling the pile of boxes in the hallway of Babirus Academy.
However, as she was causing trouble inside the school, one of the school teachers immediately kicked her out, along with Iruma and Asmodeus, who were assigned to handle such an energetic person.
When they were finally outside the school building, Clara invited Iruma to play with her. She used the word “please” in her sentence, which is one of Iruma’s weaknesses when someone asks him a favor because he can’t refuse a request as long as the person demands such a favor in a polite way.
As a result, Clara managed to find new people to play with her until she reached her satisfaction. However, it was revealed that Clara has never had real friends, as those who befriend her only see her as a convenient person because of her unique ability to copy any object she has seen and create a complete replica of it. And being as timid as she is, demons, abuse her powers for their own benefit.
The next day, in fear of being alone again with no one to play with, Clara offered numerous things to Iruma to convince him to continue playing and not leave her just like others did. But Iruma, having a golden heart, denied her offer and explained that he didn’t need anything from Clara to stay as her friend and playmate, the important thing is that they were having a lot of fun. In the end, Clara officially made her first real friends in the academy.
Clara Is Jealous of Ameri
Admiring someone means you will also have to deal with the bad feeling of jealousy. In the 7th episode of Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun, Clara, and Asmodeus began to notice that Iruma had stopped hanging out and playing with them. Every afternoon, Iruma leaves and goes somewhere else in Babyls Academy without telling the two anything about his agenda.
Feeling weird and bored without Iruma, Asmodeus suggested to Clara that they should secretly follow Iruma to find out what he was really doing. One day, while wearing special items specially crafted to prevent other demons from recognizing them, the two proceeded to follow Iruma to finally obtain answers to their curious minds.
Hiding on the side of the corridor, Asmodeus and Clara were shocked to discover that Iruma was meeting the student council’s president, Ameri. At first, the two just observed what kind of activity Iruma and Ameri were doing. However, unable to hear the conversation between Iruma and Ameri, Clara got impatient and decided to charge through the door of the room to retrieve Iruma from Ameri. This event led Clara to think that she must do something to get Iruma to play with her again.
Clara Tries to Seduce Iruma
In the 8th episode, with Sabnock’s advice to use charm in order to take Iruma back, Clara decides to choose Succubus’s course in seduction as her compulsory subject. She thought that Iruma would never go again with Ameri once she had successfully seduced him. However, on the first day of attending the art of seduction class, Clara immediately confronted a huge problem, as her level of sexiness was lower than that of a baby.
As a result, Ms. Raim gave Clara a lot of textbooks to read in order for her to increase her sexiness. In the following days, Clara tried all sorts of methods to charm Iruma, but all of her attempts failed as she was not able to execute them at all properly. Ms. Raim even said that she was not cut out for doing sexy things because she was struggling to grow from the beginning.
Hearing that, Clara left the room and went outside the building to sit on the grass. She realized that Ameri might completely steal Iruma from her, as she was not sexy at all. Suddenly, Iruma arrived, saying that he was looking for her and was worried because it was dangerous for a girl to go out alone. Knowing that Iruma sees her as a girl, Clara gets really happy, and her confidence comes back. Before leaving, she said that someday Iruma would fall hard for her.
Clara Wants to Marry Iruma
In the 11th episode of Welcome to Demon School! Iruma-kun season 2, Clara was seen having a tea party with Ameri, Elizabetta, and Kerori in one of the rooms in Babirus Academy. Everyone first introduced themselves to the group and talked about personal information, such as the shampoo and conditioner they were using for their hair. Afterward, they immediately move to talk about the person in whom they are interested.
In their love talk, Clara declared that her crush was Iruma, describing him as kind, playful, and a big eater. Clara’s declaration shocked everyone, as they did not expect her to be the first to talk about her crush. Moreover, during their conversation about love, when Ameri asks Clara if she only liked Iruma as a friend, she says with a blushing face that she is okay with marrying someone if it is Iruma.
In the end, we can say that Clara indeed developed special feelings for Iruma throughout their journey as close friends. Even though she was always seen playing around and causing trouble to almost everyone because of her mischievous behavior, Clara is still a girl who will soon fall in love.
Clara Charms Iruma
In season 3, episode 7 of the series, all the students in the King’s classroom, including Clara, participate in the Harvest Festival, which is the final practical test for first-year students. Clara had worked hard on enhancing her feminine traits and succeeded in her own way.
The episode began with Clara trapping Iruma in her costume in a small space. She even carcasses him on the face, causing him to blush. They also had a moment where they put their foreheads together, which Clara used to show Iruma her world called “Clara’s Toy Box,” where she could take out whatever she desired.
They had a great time playing together, and later on, it was disclosed why Clara had been putting so much effort into her interactions with Iruma. Raim told her that her charm was the ability to offer freedom and surprises, and if she combined these qualities, she could charm any demon she wanted, to which she only applied these words to Iruma.
Following some time playing, Iruma rested on Clara’s stomach and expressed his admiration for her. He even stated, “I really love playing with you, Clara.” which caused Clara to smile and blush intensely, almost to the point of tears, and she hugged him. Clara realized that Iruma had also charmed her in some way, and they were now equally drawn to each other, making it unfair – she says.
The two of them shared a special moment as they gazed at each other and made each other smile until Elizabetta interrupted them. She revealed that they had been having so much fun that they had lost track of time, and it was already nighttime.
Iruma Saves Clara
In the fifteenth episode of the third season, Iruma discovers that Clara is alone in the forest, and he becomes genuinely concerned for her well-being. He immediately goes to search for her to rescue her. However, when he finds her, he discovers that Orobas, the primary antagonist of the Harvest Festival Arc, has already manipulated her. Orobas made Clara hallucinate that Iruma had returned and brought back memories of her past trauma. He then proceeds to break her down by telling her that she is troublesome and that he is tired of her. He claims that nobody likes her and reminds her of her worst fear, which is not being accepted for who she truly is.
As Orobas continues to berate Clara, she begins to cry and crumble under the weight of his words. She is at her lowest point, feeling unwanted and unloved. However, just as she reaches her breaking point, Iruma appears and yells out her name, jolting her back to reality. He takes aim and fires an arrow at the hallucination, piercing it and dispelling the illusion. Overcome with emotion, Clara runs towards Iruma and throws her arms around him, crying out his name. At that moment, she feels safe and loved once again, as Iruma’s presence brings her back from the brink of despair.
