I am sick and tired of people saying “I don’t get why people hate Kudoh! it’s not his fault he didn’t do anything wrong!” that’s not true though. It’s all his fault Misao met such a terrible end and he did so many things wrong.
All he had to do was stick by her.
All he had to do was speak up, even if only once.
All he had to do was tell her he loved her before it was too late.
All Kudoh had to do was stay by his friend since kindergarten, and bear teasing for hanging out with a girl.
all he had to do was stop ignoring the bullying and help Misao.
If Kudoh had done those things, Yoshino would probably stop bullying her. Even if the bullying continued, she would have a shoulder to cry on and go to Kudoh in times of need. She never would have been crying in the bathroom because Kudoh would be there. Sohta would never have found her and if he did, Kudoh would be there and she wouldn’t be alone for him to take advantage of her like that. hell, she might even not have developed that crush on Tohma that broke her heart!
Mitzuko: Jun, why do you only take pictures of the rooms we stay in and never what we see outside while we travel? Jun: Those other things are in my memory. The hotel rooms and the airports are the things I’ll forget.
