“The truth is, they didn’t ask me to introduce you. I asked them if I could do it. I was gonna talk about how I owe you so much, how you stood by me through all of my failures, and I stood by you through all your terrible outfits… But when I got up there, I got pretty emotional. To make it up to you, I’d like to read you the speech now.”
The word, “deito” that Mako uses, in wasei eigo, can mean outing with friends. It doesn’t, by default, have to be in a romantic context. Japan is different. “Deito” is a generic word that high schoolers use when they hang out with friends.
Mako was not asking Ryuuko out on a romantic outing, though that much should be obvious since Satsuki joins them before it even begins. It’s three girls going shopping. Hanging out. Taking selfies. Eating ice cream…you know, things girls do when they go out together.
Then you have Gamagoori creeping around the corner ready to confess and ask Mako out himself…with the Elite Four’s encouragement. Do you really think that if Mako had genuinely confessed to Ryuuko in front of his face, that he would even be attempting this? No. He would not.
What Mako does during her hallelujah sequences, if you haven’t gotten the memo, is she illustrates puns or exaggerates depictions depending on what words she’s saying. She says “deito” and Trigger makes her act out a real romantic date with Ryuuko because “hahaha” funny. You’re not supposed to take the hallelujah scenes literally.
My god, this is worse than the time people thought Tsumugu was hitting on Satsuki. He was making a lame joke. -__-
evolution of jaime lannister (towards brienne of tarth)
Jaime’s golden hand cracked him across the mouth so hard the other knight went stumbling down the steps. His lantern fell and smashed, and the oil spread out, burning. “You are speaking of a highborn lady, ser. Call her by her name. Call her Brienne.” Connington edged away from the spreading flames on his hands and knees. “Brienne. If it please my lord.” He spat a glob of blood at Jaime’s foot. “Brienne the Beauty.”
THIS makes me think despite the real reason that made him left, he still cares so much about his boys he’s watching every step they’re still making from afar. And I don’t care if there will be other 100 articles talking about how he left, I still will think he’s so proud of them because he was there since the start, he was by their side in every Award and even if he left for reasons that are privates (and I like them to stay in this way) he still loves them like the dad he is. I imagine him watching XF last night and smiling because once again they’ve made it. And they did it so good he wanted them (but mostly us) to know he was there and proud of what they’ve become.
