…This… this is bad.
You know why this is bad? This is bad because I just love it way too much. Absolutely. I absolutely love the idea of the two of them together.
Now, full disclosure, I already wrote a long post about my change of heart towards Miyoshi, how I started out hating her, and came around to not hating her because of her selflessness and dedication (oh, she can still be plenty self-absorbed, but during serialization she did nothing but give nonstop). Contrasting to that is me not seeing Takagi as a good boyfriend—he took advantage of her selflessness and shot down his partner anytime Mashiro spoke up for her (equal wages for equal labor, etc.).
At the end of that post was me saying that I actually hoped that the two of them would break up, having learned what they could from each other, and go on to grow as people more.
And this. This is fucking poison in that hopeful picture. You know why? Because this is a beautiful, pearly, wonderful picture of what could be. Two creative people with so much to teach each other and the possibility of common passions. But there’s no way in hell I think I’m going to get this. What I see coming from this is a hurt Miyoshi, Aoki in shame, and bastard Takagi maybe learning something maybe.
TL;DR: I ship it and it will only hurt me, and I have reasons why.
