Teachers being bros, Bakugou tutoring Kirishima like he promised, Todoroki in the middle of a pillow fight for some reason, Mina talking to Kendou, awesome interclass relations, Jirou doing…. something…. and Aoyama either resting or taking a leaf out of Tokoyami’s book and trying to be edgy. And of course there’s Mineta probably about to scale the wall in the hotspring scene
So I’ve been rewatching Tokyo Mew Mew and I’m still… having mixed feelings for Ichigo and Aoyama, as a couple and as individual characters
When I first saw the show I was quick to get to a conclusion “Kisshigo 4ever Aoyama can die” (probably because I was a stupid 13 year old with a crush on Kisshu and no logic)
And I’ve been rewatching TMM over and over and I still have a lot of ideas so I want to speak my mind
I do not like how Ichigo behaves when she’s around Aoyama… most of the time Ichigo is ready to help others and cares a lot about the team, though I don’t think she’s always taking the leadership because a lot of times Mint and Zakuro tend to be more mature/solve out what they should do in a fight.
When I watch the lasts episodes, after Ichigo realizes Aoyama is Blue Knight and he starts being a part of the team, Ichigo gives a lot of attention to him (and yeah they’re a couple) but I think around that time she isn’t considerate to the other mew mews as much as she is with Aoyama.
Now a personal problem with this is that, probably my ideals of a romantic relationship are very different from the ones shown in the anime, because I think they’re too lovey dovey and it’s annoying that they just go on and on about how much they love each other and find their strength in each other’s laugh or happiness or whatever and how, from my point of view, Ichigo idealized Aoyama, like we’re shown random scenes when Aoyama is talking or working at the cafe and Ichigo just thinks “look at him, he’s so handsome” ok yeah but does she thinks of anything else? Like when they fight? Does she realize how powerful he is?
Now what I meant from the lovey dovey" part I mentioned that was different from my ideas of a romantic relationship is because I think when you fall in love for someone you do things like saying funny things and laughing a lot with each other and do dumb things together not just talk about how you’ll always love and protect that person because that gets kind of… boring(?, but whatever that’s a personal taste I guess.
Now another strong point I want to talk about that I think I mentioned last time I talked abut TMM…
IT. NEEDS. MORE. CHARACTER. DEVELOPMENT.
ALL OF THEM. ALL OF THE CHARACTERS
I WANT TO KNOW HOW’S MINT GETTING ALONG WITH HER BROTHER AND THE REST OF HER FAMILY
I WANT TO KNOW ABOUT PUDDING MISSING HER MOM AND TAKING CARE OF THE HOUSE AND HER SIBLINGS ON HER OWN BECAUSE HER DAD ISN’T THERE
I WANT TO TALK ABOUT KISSHU BECAUSE THIS DUDE IS PRETTY FREAKING CLEVER BUT HE NEEDS TO BE EMOTIONALLY STABLE BECAUSE DAMN DUDE YOU CAN’T JUST FORCE ICHIGO TO LOVE YOU OK?
I WANT TO TALK ABOUT TARUTO, A LITTLE KID BEING SENT TO KILL THE HUMANS TO SAVE HIS OWN PEOPLE, TRUSTING KISSHU OVER PIE, HIS OWN BROTHER, AND LATER BEING MURDERED BY HIM.
I WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT THE ALIENS AND HOW IS THEIR PLANET AND THEIR PEOPLE DOING
I WANT TO TALK ABOUT AOYAMA AND ICHIGO, HAVING A DISCUSSION OR MAKING STUPID JOKES NOT JUST BEING THE LOVELIEST COUPLE WHO FIGHT THE FORCES OF EVIL BACK TO BACK AND HOLD HANDS.
I WANT TO KNOW ABOUT ZAKURO’S PAST BECAUSE IDK IF YOU ALL REMEBER THAT SCENE LIKE A FLASHBACK OF HER CRYING OVER SOMEONE’S BODY SCREAMING “WHY DOESN’T ANYONE BELIEVE ME?” BECAUSE WHAT THE HELL WAS THAT I WANT TO KNOW
CONCLUSION: I want to know a lot about them in order to like them more and it’s freaking killing me that the show ended just like that.
