The anime confuses me bc there are culture things Japan does that can change the tone. Like grooming (brushing hair and stuff) is a thing usually done only by family but in the ending you see victor brush his hair and its like ‘YOOOOO WHAT’ because japan tends to subtle about things like that. Idk if that makes sense but ye
oh man i almost forgot about that!! yeah in japan, brushing someone else’s hair is one of the most intimate non-sexual things you can do. it’s usually only something family/married couples and serious lovers do. it’s not something friends or people that just met or more casual couples even do for each other. it’s not like, a stereotypically girly sleepover activity like it is in america. it’s not like it’s super serious it’s just….intimate. something for people you are very very close with. and in the ending sequence they specifically focus on a picture of yuuri and victor with victor brushing yuuri’s hair and yuuri looking so so calm and???? i cry.
