enters the story quite late as a character. He is there from the beginning but
we only get to see him interact with the others from episode 10 onwards. The
focal point becomes what his relation is to Yuri. He whisks him away on his

Yuri his friendship, which has apparently never occurred in Yuri’s life before,
they go for a coffee and Mari is stunned to see Yuri normally interact with
another human being for a change.
It’s up to you to ignore any fond gazes
during this scene. What’s worth mentioning is that Yuri seems kind of perplexed
by this whole thing. The “eyes of a soldier” line gets to him, because it is
probably the first time someone sees him for who he wants to be.
