Oh, have you finished V's route? As far as I can remember from your past posts (lmao I like reading stuff on your blog ok I don't want to sound creepy :c ), if you were to rank him, he's like in the middle of Zen & Yoosung. Would that still stay the same? Or did you like/dislike him more? I don't know if you can make this spoiler-free because I haven't played it yet but I'll read anything lol. ;-; By the way, thank you for patiently replying!
Heyo no need to apologize for stalking my blog! I love people reading my shit. I live for that!
and of course I reply! I reply to everyone I just go and delete most answers at some point when I’m sure that the person must have seen them, because I’m keeping my blog as clean as possible; aka almost 100% original MM content
As for V I can answer that one without spoiling anything of his route, because my feelings for him formed way before it came out and haven’t changed whatsoever.
See the thing with those rankings is that you don’t see the difference between the ranks. Like the difference in level of how much I like or dislike a person. All you know is that I like someone better than the other.
Saeran and Jumin are far far ahead of the others. While I can barely decide between those two, I’d have no problem deciding between Jumin and Zen, despite there only being one slot between them.
Let’s try to make the list a little more accurate, shall we?
So you see the ones at the bottom are really far behind the others. As for V, I think a lot of people let him skate by because he is pretty but quite frankly he is barely any better than Rika in my eyes.
His route gave me a freaking whiplash but let’s forget about that for now. The fact that he never considered calling the police on a fucking cult his ex was running, drugging and torturing people, is fucking sickening.
Now I get it, he isn’t evil, he’s not the one doing it, but he isn’t brainwashed and tortured like Saeran and he actually had the means to change something but decides not to because guilt I guess?
He has a group of people who deeply care for him and ask him to be honest the entire time and he just doesn’t ever reach out to them. Everything could have been solved in literal minutes with Seven’s and Jumin’s help.
Also, I really don’t dig this whole I’m punishing myself by letting a bitch blind me thing. What was his plan once he was blind? He can’t do anything but art and you can’t do that blind. Does he want to die or live off of charity?
Then of course the route happened and I’m not going to spoil anything specific or important but if I hear the word sun one more time, I might actually throw myself into it.
He is so pseudo deep and repetitive and stubborn and I’m just sitting here like; talk like a normal human being, please? In fact, how about you learn to community at all. He be lacking those skills a lot!!
As for what the route did to change my mind about him; very little. There were parts where I really liked him and he was sweet to the point I actually considering upping his rating a little bit maybe a 60 even.
But then the rest of the route dragged on and that notion flew right out of the window. Especially once I was finished with the, in my opinion, rather underwhelming normal and good end.
I’ll wait until the after ending comes out to make my final judgement on the character, of course, but as of now I am underwhelmed with both the V route as well as his character and that hasn’t changed.
