HELL YEAH (But I totally have to look up character names now…)
The first character I first fell in love with:
Shoko Nishimiya for obvious reasons. Although she’s not absolute favorite character, she is the first character I really loved and cared about when I started reading this manga. I really respected her kindness in such a terrible situation and the forgiveness she showed Ishida.
The character I never expected to love as much as I do now:
There are two characters that fit in this category.
Ishida Shouya, once again for obvious reasons. He’s a character that makes me feel strong emotions regarding him and his choices-this is rare for me to feel so strongly about a character. His development as a person has truly captured my heart.
Yuzuru is a character that I really love. She seems simple and silly on the outside but there are so many more layers to her. I love that she wants the best her sister and does everything she can to show her her love, cutting her hair and taking pictures of dead things. She shows her love through physical means rather than expressing it in words (because both Nishimiya sisters are bad with words in two different ways).
The character everyone else loves that I don’t:
Mashiba (but do people actually love him?) I didn’t like how he jumped into the fight on the bridge when he had no right to considering he wasn’t even there when Ishida and the others were in elementary school. I also didn’t like how he only joined their group of friends because they were making a movie. I think it’s shallow.
The character I love that everyone else hates:
Ueno. She’s a very real character and I just can’t predict what she’ll do. Instead of handling her feelings, she lashes out. It also seems like her main driving force for her actions is Ishida. I think that’s really important to the insight of her character.
The character I used to love but don’t any longer:
Nagatsuka. I liked that he befriended Ishida despite the rumors about him, but ended up not liking how he treated Ishida toward the latter half of their friendship. It wasn’t his fault, it was just his character so now he has a lot of room to grow.
The character I would totally smooch:
Ishida. (I just want to kiss his boo boos and make everything better).
The character I’d want to be like:
Ishida. I’d want to be able to turn myself around and change as a person for the better like she has.
The character I’d slap:
Kawai. She’s two-faced and I hate her. Simple as that.
A pairing that I love:
Nishimiya and Ishida (He was totally going to confess before he fell off the balcony btw). I just want the healing to come soon.
A pairing that I despise:
Ishida and Ueno. This pairing is really more in Ueno’s mind than anyone else’s. I don’t like how she handles her feelings for Ishida and takes it out on Nishimiya. He clearly doesn’t see her that way and even though it hurts her, I don’t like that she hurts everyone else because of it. I also hate how she’s keeping everyone out of his hospital room while he’s comatose. That’s unnecessarily selfish and it’s taking it too far.
