This is silly, cliché and incredibly self indulgent, but consider:
The squad while they were still on the run. They need a place to crash for the night so they go to this abandoned house that seems good enough.
While checking if the place is safe one of them finds and old radio/cd player/whatever. They think it’s cool and all, but don’t pay much mind to it.
Except after dinner, they’re chilling in the living room, not quite wanting to get ready to sleep yet, and Shinoa decides to see if that thing still works. Turns out it does! Well, mostly. It’s a bit scratchy, but it starts to play some nice music.
Shinoa then goes all “dance with me, Micchan!” and grabs Mitsu to dance. At first she doesn’t want to and starts complaining and doesn’t move at all, but Shinoa forces her anyway and soon the two of them are moving and giggling around the room.
The boys just watch them for a little, but Yoichi says they should dance too, so he drags Kimizuki (who’s not very amused) to where the girls are.
Yuu laughs and Narumi facepalms cause these kids are so embarrassing omg, tho slowly everyone joins in. It’s awkward, no one really knows how to dance, but they’re having fun.
However! Yuu sees Mika standing by the corner alone, which is unacceptable, of course. He immediately goes to him like “Mikaaa, you have to dance too!”
“No way, Yuu-chan”
“It’s fun, I promise”
Yuu takes his hands and guides him. Mika starts off so stiff and awkward, but he eventually gives in and let’s himself be a little silly with Yuu and Yuu is so happy because he gets to see Mika smile, even if just a little. So for the first time in ages all of them have a chance to just be kids and laugh and have fun together and now I’m crying bye.
I have a friend that says that Yoichi is just kinda there, and that he doesn't have any good development or good points as a character than "being the cute peacemaker of the team" any arguments to make them realize they're wrong? I suck at explaining
