Hello comrades of the shipping! (/°^°)/ it's been so long since the last upload of this manga but I just reread it and I've just recently become interested in the reader forums >v< (I'm glad I'm not the only weirdo out there).
With no malice in mind (I mean I don't want to fight, all ships are precious and I respect them) I would like to share my own research results so far -v- (notice this is me on september 17th of 2015 having read until ch 36 and all of the previous posts in this forum discussion)

I absolutely love Megu's character, and the dynamic she has with Nadeshiko is pretty interesting, but she seems to be the teaseable character overall, a really good friend and a responsible person. Everybody goes on how it would suck if Megumi is treated like that out of nothing, and I agree (a little) but what is it with close friends? Dunno how it is with you guys but my close interactions with friends are filled with the freedom of being mean to each other -v-(please tell me if I'm wrong... cuz I'll have to apologize a lot to my friends xD).

Now (as a lot may think), Megumi would be way too obvious... so I don't think it's her (but then maybe since Namori-sensei knew we would draw that logic they did it on purpose D: so it would be a surprise that it is actually her chanchanchan!) Also in the first comic of these, during the phone call Nadeshiko says ''People say that sort of thing from time to time, it's probably all right.'' that leading us to someone who actually said something that could be missintepreted or gave too much information; Megumi said none of these. That leaves us with Ai vs Miho. I'm sorry Megumi team orz (keep believing, that's what shipping is about ovó)

Miho is the second strong contendant to the Nadeshiko's GF position because of (again) the nature of their relationship, with Miho having unnatural powers over Nadeshiko. Miho seems to be an even greater sadist than the queen D: creating a gap between her outside appereance and her inner self, which makes her really atractive as a character and gives her a strong presense in the series without any effort (Akariin could learn a thing or two from her xD jk). The particular interest in the usual cool and colected Nadeshiko when pushed a little off limits seems normal to me C: As a given of her flirty personality, she will loose to no-one. She is basically that pervy friend °^°. We've seen her in action teasing Megu too (again Megu is teaseable).

Now on the 'teasing' of the first call, I don't see it as it being Miho. Again with the quote ''People say that sort of thing from time to time, it's probably all right.'' I want to make enfasis on ''People say...'' the thing I see as missinterpreteable (<--totally just made that word) in what Miho said would be ''I consider Nadeshiko to be the sort who enjoys being teased'' and then... that is not something that PEOPLE say but rather something that MIHO would say (I may be reading too much on this). Furthermore I don't see enough juice out of them being in a relationship, it's this Miho we are talking about!! do you really believe she would be this calm on the teasing if it were like that?! This would be filled with Nadeshiko loosing her cool! (at least I believe that) The mystery would have been solved chapters ago if it was her xD (on a personal note... I ship her with Megumi (*ノ▽ノ) )

By now you may know where I'm getting at, but be calm and please do keep reading if you may, I'm not discarding the evidence of the previous two, I hope you won't be disappointed. I'll try to keep it short (now I say it... this is a really long post TT^TT sorry)

Ai. Ai is the least favorite for this... and I've seen that Team Ai (at least in this forum) keep it short, just showing their belonging to this ship. For you my friends I'll give my best to give you voice.
As I read somewhere in this post, Ai is as white as a piece of paper... you may be right but this is what I think.
I'll just mention the obvious traits of her dynamic with Nadeshiko: She is obviously the one Nadeshiko treats nicest and she is always, ALWAYS (I mean ALWAYS) closer to Nadeshiko than the other two.
Let's go with her persona, she is posibly the least developed character as we see no traits of a 'special' personality (thus no considering a special relationship) but that's what makes her interesting. Think it like this, we see nothing of her but what is showed to us, and what is important for us is what we haven't seen of her, since what we haven't seen is what reveals the mystery. She seems WAAAAY too not-suitable, WAAAAY too innocent... attention to detail folks.
In ch. 6 (the teasing with the candy) http://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/yuru_yuri_oomuro_ke_ch06#7 I want you to notice here... we don't see the reaction of Ai to Nadeshiko's nom... why is it only Megumi in that last pannel? ''Miho is amazing'' (you may go with, cuz of perspective but you know that could be fixed somehow or another) we don't see her face at all for that moment, we see her the moment before tho. It kinda happens again in ch.16.
not enough? ok in that same chapter Ai requests to buy a strap for Nade's cellphone... I know what you are thinking, what is important here is that she is 'fussy' bout those things (it's there) however we never see that strap... what we see later is a necklace...( maybe the strap is not there so we don't hold a similarity with such necklace...)
Now here --> http://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/yuru_yuri_oomuro_ke_ch22#3 in the famous MeguxNade page (I'm sorry as I'm about to change it into an Ai's moment), hidden in the big hint for Megu we see a small ''How did you know by the way'' and after the explanation a really eager ''I see'' even tho Miho seconded her question, she is the only one with an overly pleased face and to top it she desviates the topic by complimenting Megu (again... she did it before... why doing it twice?) then follows to sit next to Nadeshiko (like lovers do). If Namori-sensei really wanted ambiguity they would have left Nade alone, and Miho and Ai sitting togheter...
In the photo booth photos Ai and Nade are the only ones who don't draw a heart between their names and write the super obvious friends (too self-concious?)
http://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/yuru_yuri_oomuro_ke_ch27#7 here Nadeshiko's determination shivers only with Ai.

At the end I think Ai is a little devil in disguise... and that's what I find interesting http://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/yuru_yuri_oomuro_ke_ch19#4 this simple comment realeases a favorable situation for her (to see Nade as a waitress) without being pushy herself.
I like to see the pattern in how their conversation flows in this http://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/yuru_yuri_oomuro_ke_ch33#5 (I also appreciate the hint) cuz Ai asks ''Are you embarrassed by any chance?'' and then goes ''how cute'' In Miho's teasing she goes ''that's cute you are embarrassed'', now pay attention to the phone teasing http://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/yuru_yuri_oomuro_ke_ch03#7 That 'nope' is answering a question that is most likely to be ''Are you embarrassed by any chance?'' and here http://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/yuru_yuri_oomuro_ke_ch26#3 that ''Celebrating?... I'm not' would be a good negation for ''Are you celebrating?'' or ''Aren't you celebrating?'' and here http://dynasty-scans.com/chapters/yuru_yuri_ch54#3 ''you are the one who was embarrassed'' fits for that pattern too.
Also Nadeshiko suggests shopping (Nadeshiko always suggests stuff based on Ai's likes) and Ai loves even window shopping, and ''THAT'S NOT WHAT I MEANT'' reaction wouldn't go natural with a common knowledge of Miho's nature or the dynamic with Megu (in that case it would have been something more like a collected or a somewhat pissed ''you know I didn't mean it like that'')

The poor recollection of Hanako in the almost hint chapter 11 could be cuz Ai's faint presense xD

Let's be honest an Ai-chan who is wild at night is a completely pausible and lovable idea.

(I so wanna see that ch.40!! D: I would totally die right there if the top of the Kabe-don is Ai!! and the bottom Nadeshiko)

Again this is all speculation from my part... and I'm waiting the end of this while willing to accept any posible finale... All of them work for me -v- <3 (as long as it is not TRUTH :S ) Let's all wait for the best togheter <3

P.D. yup Kaede is the most adorable Moe blob to ever Moe in the history of the history of Moe.

woa, this is so interesting and fun to read. I hope they'll animate some scenes from this >w<

Hats off to the above explanation~! I'm Ai team so that, along with ch.40 spoiler, puts me at ease =3
Also I want to add about some things about some things. First, the phone strap. While it's not shown yet that they do buy it, I don't think you will just agree immediately if your friend wants to pick it for you, since anything about your phone is personal, except if that friend is "someone" else.
That also ties to why Nade got bracelet in the end. After Ai talked about picking a phone strap, Miho commented that it sounded fun, making Ai picked for everyone. Hence, it became bracelet instead of phone strap.
Still on that matter, on the conversation on ch. 26, Nade said "I'd be fine with shopping, or anything else." I think the gf here asked what Nade wanted to do. Of course, Nade would be fine with whatever her gf liked to do. And we all know who among the three who loves shopping the most.
Also, go back to chapter 11 where Hanako describes the friend (gf), it just made me imagine Ai, but then again it's so vague. Although, when Hanako said she remembered something about her, I just can't help thinking it's Ai's eyes or her beauty mark. Those things are "small" (easily forgettable), unlike ponytail (Megumi) or bands (Miho) which have strong impact when we try to remember someone.
But then again, those are only my opinion =3 Each Nade pairing has its own charms and I'm fine with any of them in the end.

Now this may be weird, but I ship Miho x Megumi as well c:

Anyway, Oomuro siblings are natural harem queens, except a certain middle sister.

Can't believe i make an account just for this lol

Anyway!
I'm in #TeamMegumi and pretty certain that Megumi IS the GF.

Some people have noted that Megumi is an obvious choice (kind of) so they expect it to be someone else. Ai or Miho, who knows?
But remember that sometimes the best way to hide something is by hiding it in plain sight...

Sometimes, I think Nadeshiko is going out with Ai, but actually prefers Megumi and is being tsundere about it.

She's so mean to Megumi, it has to hide something.

Then by your logic, Miho being so mean to Nadeshiko has to hide something as well.

Well, it's a question we've been debating here for pages.

And here he comes asking it out of the blue. It just means that he didn't bother to read the rest of the comments.

Hence I was sarcastic. But I've been labeled "agressive", so I hold back a little now.

What if Miho and Nadeshiko are taking chances like this to hold each other's hand while busy talking with their other friends..just WHAT IF..xD

Crap. Thread posts and ch.3 made me think AI as the girlfriend.
-Ai knew of the place before the others; Naeshiko knows AI's taste

But then ch.6 makes me think Miho
-Miho knows Nadeshiko's chocolate preference + the tease and then she catches herself and incorporates group.

ch.11- the tease...

ch.16- I know people gave Ai points because of the strap comment but...
-Nadeshiko comments on how Miho picks "weirdest ones" and Nadeshiko always has weird ring tones that she doesn't particularly like (in ch.10). Since Miho is a super sadist...

ch.22- The only time I considered Megumi...

ch.26- Movies... they went to the movies in ch.22 except for Megumi. Crap...

ch.27- Serious? Anyone goes ._.

ch.31- Why couldn't you be useful Sakurako!!! ;-;

ch.33- Miho...Ai...Miho...Ai,,,

Considering how none of the other loving characters in the series are subtle...(Chinatsu>Yui, Ayano>Kyoko, Akane>Akari, Tomoko>Akane, Sakurako>Himawari)
I am hoping its Miho!

Ch 26 conversation makes me think it's Miho on the other side of the phone because it matches how Nadeshiko interact with her most of the time : being teased about celebrating or making her embarassed about what she said. Ai could probably match too, but Megumi doesn't really strikes me as the teasing kind, unless she really goes out of her way to get her friends to not know her real personality. She just doesn't seems to be like that.

Knowing each other taste isn't much of a feat, in my opinion, when you spend time with friends, you eventually pick up on their taste and preferences, so I tend to consider those "hints" cautiously. Could mean anything.

The strap comment is indeed typical of couple, but on another hand, it's kinda too obvious if they start using matching straps, people might pick up on that and Nadeshiko made it clear that at least her want to keep their relationship secret, so I don't really see her accepting something as obvious as a strap from her girlfriend. And that they got matching necklaces later on whith nadeshiko insisting on not wearing them at school because too risky (when you can just hide it under your clothes) kinda conforts me in the idea that the strap thing doesn't have any ulterior meaning.

Well, part of the fun of this manga is to try and guess who's the girlfriend. ^^

Still no updates yet.... You know what? Nandeshiko's girlfriend could be not any of them. Ever think of that? Could be a new character. Anything is possible actually.

All three of them. Probably all three of them.

I'm in #TeamMegumi since I think both will act unusually dere when alone --> super gap moe. Then maybe Miho. Then Ai

I was getting pretty worried, but then I stumbled upon this picture while I was reading through the Image Comments: http://ks.c.yimg.jp/res/chie-que-12157/12/157/048/597/i320. It's the Namori steamy image with glasses girl and other girl. Apparently, she's the one on the far left but who knows if that's true. Until proven otherwise, I'm just gonna hold on to my hope that Namori's a girl.

Also, I can definitely relate to her working out issues. "This is it, I'm gonna start getting into shape today! ... Nah, I'll do it tomorrow."

Her name is written pretty clearly as なもり so yes that is Namori seated with the rest of the Yuru Yuri voice actress cast. It also says(原作者) indicating her as the author of the series.
