Well shit. I thought I was supposed to root for Chisaki and the MC and this fag and fishknee. But these two have more chemistry and have actual conversations.
>rooting for someone else
Not in our /a/. Japan's the same. These two became their OTP.
Guess I'm one of the few who dislike that pairing
>butthurt HikarixChisaki shipper detected
I'm using two strawpolls.
This is /a/ all we care about is HikarixMiuna
It was always obvious.
Speak for yourself. I don't see what's so interesting about Miuna. She has zero personality.
Has it really become Japan's OTP? I always thought it was Hikari X Tsumugu in Japan.
You mean in fanart? Pretty much.
Futaba and 2ch were all into it too. They loved the husband-wife traditional vibe of quiet support they have and their slow build up as contrast to childhood crushes without actual reason.
Seconding this. Even though they're forcing her into Manaka's spot, she's still irrelevant drama bait to me.
I fucking hate Tsumugu
She's cute and has a pretty design but she's bland as fuck on her own. She was a melodramatic kid too. Manaka could appear a crybaby but she had far more guts and more strength than Miuna did. That said, I find the ManakaxHikarixMiuna triangle better than anything involving Tsumugu or Chisaki because those two seemed to fit in and were out of place in that relation.
That seems to be 2ch opinion too. They liked Chisaki but the Chisaki->Hikari I LOVE YOU BECAUSE YOU LOVE MANAKA was shit. While she had an interesting conversation and relationship with psycho and landfag.
I hate him too, but you gotta admit, there's chemistry between him and Chisaki, and it's much more refreshing than Chisaki going for the other childhood friend as a rebound.
Did Chisaki know Manaka liked Tsumugu? I forget
I love how nobody gives a fuck about Kaname
Yes, she did. Also she seemed to show signs of attraction from Tsumugu masking herself as "don't be so kind or manaka will fall for you" since episode 02, blushing and getting mad at him when he wasn't the one she thought.like a tsundere. Kaname watched them very closely.
yeah she knows
I like Kaname as character but I don't like his pairings so far. Maybe Sayu will change that.
I'm loving them on the fact it wasn't an asspull, but a growing unusual relationship that starts with typical and believable hormonal attraction, is deepened by actual interaction (the positive and negative one), consolidated by supporting each others in bad moments (Chisaki's desperation when he's in trouble), the subtle pull Kaname notices, their silent but affectionate support and bottled feelings over the years as they do their best to overcome tragedy together.
They are a extremely unusual but interesting couple.
But when was this poll made? At first both Manaka and Hikari were disgusting but by the end of the first cour they had actually changed quite a bit.
Also, that scene with Hikari waving the flag happened.
Chisaki spends the whole time pining for Hikari then jumps on the Tsumugu train the last minute leaving my nigga Kaname out to dry
Who is the protector of smiles?
I can't be the only one who still thinks that fish people should end up with just fish people.
Kaname needs to get a break, as if holding your feelings for x years because the one you love apparently loves your bro, only to find out she's over him and is now lusting for another guy.
This was two of the pairing polls, for Tsumugu and for Chisaki pairings.
We don't know why he loves her so is completely idiotic, same for Chisaki's feelings for Hikari HURR I LOVE THE WAY YOU PINE AFTER MANAKA. At least with Chisaki and Tsumugu they acted like hormonal teens suppressing their attraction, interacting like normal people, getting to know each other and then supporting in their ups and lows.
