It’s April 2nd! Now back to our regularly scheduled bugmen.
THE UNDERPANTS WERE SAFE UNTIL HE SHOWED UP!
O-once he put a brand new pair out on the roof top. They blew away in the wind before I could get them… hopefully they found a caring home.
Everyone who ate the chocolate suffered from digestive upset thanks to tampering from Kusaka, because no one is allowed to have
nice things gifts from Mari ‘cept him.
So firstly, I realize a while ago there was a Pixiv image going around of Mami, Hase and Scissors together. I’m saying Scissors and not Sudou because he was suited up, and this leads me to think the artist hadn’t actually watched Ryuki and just went with the first rider death as an example. Maybe they did see it, I don’t know and don’t really care.
Yes, Sudou was the first to go and as such the first reality check of hey, we weren’t kidding, the riders will die. Though that really meant very little when it happened to him and we were not supposed to feel sympathetic for a criminal.
(Friendly reminder that Asakura was not the only pre-series murderer.)
So while personally I did like Sudou as a starter antagonist, I don’t think it’s really fair to measure him up to the roles Mami and Hase played in the series just because he was the first. If anything, it’s slightly insulting to their importance.
To me, the only one who suited that category was Tezuka. His death hit multiple people, especially the audience and served as motivation for Shinji long into the show. This was also an example of misjudgment leading to his downfall, like Mami not taking her fight with Charlotte seriously or Hase not considering possible consequences before gulping down that fruit.
-I can’t say this is the end for us though.
-Hase-kun, would you like another piece of cake?
This is how I want to help people, and I came to this decision myself. Kiriya-kun and I are different people, and I’m glad he’s becoming a fine oni under Hibiki-san’s teachings. I also have Hibiki-san’s support! Also, thank you everyone who thinks I would have been a fine oni. Really, I appreciate it!
