Shimada is such a fantastic man I don’t understand how people don’t understand his greatness.
He is a grown up and working man and yet he has not forgotten what it is like to be a child, he enjoys being a child, he enjoys playing and fooling around and yet manages to prove that having a bit of fun and acting a bit childish sometimes does not make you any less mature or responsible.
HE FOLDS HIS STUPID CLOTHES while everyone just throws them however they please because really who cares, this man takes the time to fold them neatly and even places a towel on them, which is also folded properly. Grade A husband material.
LOOK HOW, TOGETHER WITH TAKINOUE, THEY CHEER FOR KARASUNO. WITH ALL THEIR MIGHT. AGAINST ALL THE YELLS GOING SEIJOU, SEIJOU. ;w;
Does not sugarcoat but says it how it is, because he knows lying has never made someone improve
and explains exactly why only hard-work will bring you anywhere, which I’m pretty sure helped Yamaguchi improve his skills much more than white lies ever could.
Also please note how incredibly hard-working Shimada is, considering he himself worked his ass off for every little point, even if he realized he might not get to play too much. UGH this man.
Also he makes the most adorable faces
He also has his handsome&serious moments though
Also Furudate once dedicated an entire page to his shop and it’s amazing
In conclusion, Shimada Makoto is a wonderful man and I’m way too passionate about him, probably.
