Q:Why do you hate Reiji that much, he is not that bad jeez...
OH MY GOD OKAY.
Once upon a time Reiji got mad at Yui for getting a 95 on a test and not 100.
Once upon a time, Reiji threatened to whip Yui if she didn’t go to class.
Once upon a time, Reiji killed his mother - hired someone to kill his mother - because she didn’t pay much attention to him as she did Shu.
Once upon a time, Reiji burned down Edgar/Yuma’s village because he was jealous that Shu had a friend.
Once upon a time, Reiji was a jealous prick for no reason.
look I’m just gonna ignore the fact that you said “no reason” even though he did have a reason and just
do you realize what canon this is
everyone is awful
Laito emotionally abuses Yui to the point where she tries to kill herself multiple times in HDB. He is thrilled by the fact that she’s terrified of him and then is able to successfully stockholm her, he thinks it is gr8.
in MB, Kou repeatedly does horrible things to Yui because she doesn’t fawn over him and give him whatever he wants. One time, he puts a collar on her neck and walks her around the park like a dog. When they run into a man, he shows off his “cute dog”.
In HDB, Yui is startled because Subaru is right in front of her when she opens the front door. It’s normal to be startled by that when you’re not expecting it, right? Except Subaru gets angry that she ~didn’t recognize his scent~ or whatever, so he chains her up in the torture room and walks away for god knows how long. At one point, he lifts her up by the neck, and the only reason she doesn’t die from suffocation is because she just barely manages to fight back.
In the beginning of Yuuma’s (MB, of course) route, he sucks her blood so much and so often, she gets really bad anemia. She tries to get out of him sucking her blood one day, apologizing and saying she can’t today, just not today, please forgive her, but he doesn’t listen. She attempts to run, but he grabs her and… acts like the Sakamaki are right outside the window so she’ll be humiliated when he sucks her blood in front of it. Afterwards, he goes ‘lol I tricked you there was no one out there’, saying it as if it was just a funny joke.
etc. etc. shuu being an asshole etc. kanato screaming and burning things etc.
Of course there are reasons why they act like this, but that doesn’t excuse it and they are still awful shitty things.
it’s okay not to like Reiji. my favourite is Kanato and it is also okay not to like him, I will be friends with people even if they do not like him I do not want to force anyone to like anyone. but if your reason for not liking a character in dialovers is “they do shitty things without a good enough excuse for it” then…..
congrats you do not like the entire cast with the exception of Yui
Okay, Anet, I have to hand it to you. This one was pretty epic. I didn’t get everything I wanted out of the update, but the boss battles are fantastic and nobody can fault your guys’ style.
