Don’t get me wrong, he’s the last person in the world i’d ever want to know in real life
i think he’s a fun character, he makes for entertaining scenes and dialogue, he’s pretty interesting to think about and pretty well written in my opinion.
Plus, i like that he’s legitimately an asshole. like lots of the time a punk character that can be befriended by a protagonist is 100% a sweetie pie under their tough exterior, but mondo oowada is the kind of guy who really would start a violent street gang in real life. he’s aggressive, impulsive, hasn’t gotten much encouragement anywhere else, so he turns to violence. they humanised him without resorting to an overdone stereotype that all bullies are lovely people on the inside. He’s well written!
He’s a good character, so i like him! that’s all there is to it.
It’s got nothing to do with him being a terrible person, because I don’t have to live with his garbage mistakes!
like i’m angry at him for what he does but in the end like, what did you think was gonna happen? it’s the point of the game. I also like the characters he fucks over, but like as an individual he holds up, so i don’t think that needs to affect how much i enjoy him in general.
also, im very very boring and i know better, so i like to live vicariously through the punk characters. they’re always my favourites.
i’m like a dance mom but with punching.
