Sekai-Ichi 10: …I still think Yoshiyuki should have dumped Chiaki
… but a Yandere Yoshiyuki is fine too.
And here I was thinking that Yoshiyuki would simply endure his one-sided relationship as the plot demands.
Alas Yandere Yoshiyuki, I barely knew ye.
Admittedly, the relationship isn’t as one-sided as it used to be.
Sure, Chiaki may have run off with Yuu to a hot spring resort, but at least he felt guilty about it.
This would never work with heterosexual characters, by the way. There is no female character that could be in a relationship with a guy and then run off with another guy without being branded a slut/whore/woman-of-loose-morals. Just sayin’.
They see me chillin’, they hatin’.
I had to add this screencap. Look at his expression. It is priceless.
I can’t resist making a Titanic reference. But really, how dense can Chiaki get? I’ve got a couple of guys whom I’m best pals with, and I’d freak the hell out if they asked if they could draw me shirtless. Heck, I wouldn’t want to see myself shirtless.
No, I’m not saying that I would do it if I had Chiaki’s body.
I do not have subconscious homosexual tendencies. I most definitely would not want to be alone with a close male friend at a hot spring resort, in a situation where he’s asking me to strip, his strong hands firmly gripping my shoulders, his breath warm on my bare skin…
Ahem. That said, I’m rather puzzled by this scene. Chiaki is supposed to be the female audience surrogate. He’s the one whom possesses feminine traits so that females can fantasize themselves in his position.
So how does this fit in? I get the whole ‘posing for a cute guy to draw them’ part, but I can’t imagine girls would want to fantasize themselves wearing nothing but baggy pants.
(If I’m wrong, please don’t let me know.)
Tickling? Is that what you call it now?
Oh yes Yuu, I see where your left hand is. I know you want to tickle Chiaki real good, and you most definitely know what I mean.
Okay so I would probably get sick of this really fast, but dang that is a nice breakfast. Yes, I am Asian, and I’d take rice over waffles. Most days.
Chiaki doesn’t know how lucky he is that Yoshiyuki comes over to make meals for him all the time. Seriously I would totally go out with Yoshiyuki just so he would cook for me.
Only go out, not marry, because that’s reserved for Kou or Masamune. Although neither of them have demonstrated cooking skills as of yet. A most troubling realisation.
Homosexual tendencies? What homosexual tendencies?
Yoshiyuki has become such a great troll. I was expecting some cheesy nonsense like a homemade cake or something.
Not that I think that homemade cakes are cheesy nonsense (unless they’re cheesecakes ufufu I’m so funny), but it would have been so typical of what I imagined Yoshiyuki would have done. I am so happy with his change of character in this episode.
Another stunner. Yoshiyuki saying things that Kou/Masamune would say? He must have been taking lessons.
I can so totally imagine Yoshiyuki stalking Masamune with a notepad and writing down the things he says to troll Ritsu. Somehow it just fits Yoshiyuki’s hardworking nature.
He’d be practicing those lines and his blank expression in front of a mirror.
On the whole, this is actually a pretty satisfying conclusion to an otherwise downright unsatisfying story arc. Yoshiyuki stepped up his game and everything turned out alright. And from this we can conclude that trolling = successful relationship.
Yes, the title of this post was just me being sour grapes. I wanted Yoshiyuki to be happy and Chiaki to suffer – Yandere Yoshiyuki is an inspired solution to two sets of problems. Killing two Yaoi birds with one stone.
… apparently some idioms cannot be Yaoi-fied. A leopard can’t change his Yaoi, after all.
Alas poor Yuu, I barely knew ye either.
Side note: I googled the phrase “alas poor i barely knew ye’ and as it turns out it’s probably one of the most overused phrases in the English language. Thank goodness I didn’t title my post as such~
Holy crap it’s angry Yokozawa.
Yokozawa angry! Yokozawa crush puny rival Ritsu! Yokozawa smash!
I’ve been watching too many Marvel vs Capcom 3 videos.
