For the character ask thingy Toma !!!
Aaaa, this will be fun! Thank you so much you’re so sweet to send one in return ♡
He was my first route, and I thought he was such a creepy but fun character; I was never once bored. I viewed him kinda like Komaeda, very kind at a glance but is wearing a mask XD… And I love being thrown off, I’ve seen the same old over and over and boy was his route a hoot
I never have rethought why I like a character deeply because the western fandom can be awful towards him, screaming “why do people like him!” and some persona shit I’ve gotten. I really had to think harder about his motivations and he is my ultimate favorite I want him to have a happy ending(especially since he loves heroine in some other routes, achieve happiness in his own). Even though he goes too far in his route, it’s important to note what sets him further and further off the deep end to his measures is Heroine keeps getting threatened / attacked / harassed. I love examining the why’s and I think that’s why he’s such a successful character for me, he kind of requires the most “reading between the lines” to understand.
Aaagh so many. I think my favorite is the scene where Heroine can touch his cheek and he says he is horrified and think she just pities him, and he says he doesn’t deserve dreams or hopes. I guess I’m a sucker for self-loathing. And just the end of the Good end when he and Heroine kiss and he’s like “I’m not going to hold back for all the lost time.” Har har XD
Idea for a story
Similar to you I’d love to hear more of Toma’s backstory, like is his dad around? I think we only hear about his mom. I’d also love a continuation of the Normal Ending where Heroine tries to find him after regaining her memories… Shin wouldn’t approve but it’d be a very fun scenario imho. Or just the Bad End
I loved the bad ending and I love his yandere side and honestly? I wouldn’t have minded a guy that always had my back and taken out bullies during my school years. *cackle cackle*
Definitely his relationship with Heroine ♡ After all the shit and long years of misunderstandings and him being too dense and fearing rejection to change the relationship how he really wanted, all the events in his route and them finally coming to understand each other. Just knowing going forward the efforts he goes through to make it up to her and despite him being at his absolute worst / ugliest side Heroine still loves him…and gets to tease him and cal him an idiot. And they play friggin’ videogames together. That kinda is the best date to me! Ah, I love the childhood trio too, I love they stay together in his route…😄
The joke that Toma is a blacksmith lmao
