You see a new, softer side of Sehun as he takes you out for the first time.
Sehun swats Baekhyuns hand away from his forehead, a scowl etched on his face.
Baekhyun scoffs at him before backing away, eyeing Sehun closely.
“Junmyeon, will you tell them to stop?!” Sehun begs, looking to Suho with annoyance.
“Sehun we’re just weirded out and concerned!” Chanyeol says, looking from him to Baekhyun.
“Yah and you don’t have a fever so you’re not sick…what is it then?!” Baekhyun asks, standing next to Chanyeol with his arms crossed.
Junmyeon doesn’t even look up from his book, already knowing the reason for Sehuns odd behavior.
“He has a date”
Chanyeol and Baekhyun immediately erupt, chanting almost in unision,
“Our Sehun has a date!!!!”
Sehun slumped down into the couch, hoping for it to engulf him entirely. Anything to get him away from these two.
“Did I just hear something about Sehun and a date?” Minseok asks, popping his head into the room. Jongin and Jongdae and Yixing follow suit with snacks in tow. Kyungsoo comes out of his room, wondering what all the commotion was about. Before Sehun could even process what was happening, they were all sitting before him.
He lets out a dramatic sigh, throwing his hands up in defeat.
“Why is this suddenly a group affair?! It’s just a date!” He cried, trying to avoid their gazes, but it was difficult when you had 8 pairs of eyes on you.
He looks to the leader for help, and thought he might actually get it as Suho was staring at the group with a look of annoyance. But then a smirk crosses his face.
“He’s taking out Y/N”
The group collectively erupts again, begging Sehun to tell them all about how this new development came to be.
Alrighty fans, listen up. I hope I’m not the only one that’s utterly confused about this, and no matter how much I’ve thought about it and analyzed it, I can’t seem to come to any sort of conclusion that isn’t related to a shipping of any kind (and don’t get me wrong, shippings can be awesome, but I’m trying to find a different solution).
This is what baffles me every time: why is Bakura so innocently fond of the Millennium Ring, when he knows how dangerous it can be?
I mean, firstly, it’s clear how much he loves the thing:
He’s so fond of it that he feels the need to check up on it in the middle of the night, just because he was worried about it. If that’s not obsession, I don’t know what is.
It’s interesting to note that the ring keeps making the RMM RMM sound, which I’ll touch up on again later.
Next point: it’s clear he understands the danger of the Millennium Ring. He understands this even before Duelist Kingdom:
Especially this part:
So he knows that wearing the Ring is dangerous, and so he makes sure to keep it off, because it’s “just a piece of jewelery” when he’s not wearing it. It’s clear he likes to keep it because his father gave it to him, and that’s one of the well-known reasons.
So? What’s the issue? As long as he keeps it off, who cares if he likes to have it or not?
Why in the world is he choosing to wear it, when he clearly stated in earlier scenes that it was dangerous if he wore it? He looks so innocent here, shining eyes and all, that it’s hard to believe he’s being controlled as he was in an earlier scene:
(In both pictures, the ring is making the RMM RMM noise again, which I will address later).
What baffles me here is that he knew it was dangerous to put on, and yet he still does! Here’s another picture of him innocently looking for his prized possession:
Again, he seems completely unaware of the fact that the Ring is potentially dangerous for his and others’ health. In the battle city one earlier, Bakura hides the Millennium Ring under his shirt purposely to hide it from Yugi, whom he already knew would take it away from him again. And why would Yugi take it away from him? BECAUSE IT’S EVIL, THAT’S WHY!
And it’s not like Bakura hasn’t experienced how evil the Ring can be, because the Ring has clearly left some painful mental and physical scars:
Can’t forget about Duelist Kingdom:
So…? Why in the world does he put it on later?
Addressing the RMM RMM in many of these screencaps: I feel like when the Ring vibrates and makes the RMM RMM sound, it’s “nudging” him. Not quite brainwashing, but making Bakura feel like what he’s doing is something he himself thought of out of his own free will. The spirit did the same thing in Duelist Kingdom:
He said he was “guiding [him] toward it [the] whole time”. More RMM RMM sounds, more vibrating, more “nudging”. I also believe that the nudging explains how Ryou created the Dark RPG for the Spirit: that he believed he was doing it for the exhibit, but the Spirit really used him for his own selfish purposes. Of course, I could totally be off, and the RMM RMM sound could just indicate that the Ring is active. But hey, fans can over-analyze, eh?
Just when you thought this post was getting too long, I also want to address this scene:
His eyes sort of look haunted, and the use of an ellipses after both of his sentences certainly is creepy. I feel like there’s sort of a hidden secret in his words, like he’s sort of telling the truth, sort of lying. I can’t quite make out why this panel was made this like, because the Ring isn’t vibrating so he probably isn’t under its influence.
I, personally, feel like the Spirit uses some sort of mind-wipe, or possibly influences Bakura so that Bakura forgets about the Spirit, which would explain why he so innocently seeks it out and happily puts it on even after experiencing how dangerous it can be.
So? What do you guys think? Is he possessed in most and/or all of these scenes? Does he accept and/or respect the spirit? Is he in some sort of romantic relationship? Did Takahashi confuse himself over how Ryou Bakura was supposed to act? Is Ryou trying to avoid thinking about the Spirit, and values the Ring as a gift from his father? Am I over-analyzing this?
My rant is over. Here’s a nice picture of Bakura for your troubles:

The yuki onna had been following this person since they had set foot in the mountains, being ever so careful to stay hidden as they explored. There hasn’t been a human here in ages and if there were, it was usually lost travelers or yokai hunters. It didn’t seem like this one was a hunter, so he figured it was safe to have some fun with them now. Of course, that could change at any time.
“Excuse me~” He peeked out from one of the trees he was hiding behind, giving the stranger an innocent look as he did so. “What brings you here? It’s rare to see another person out here at this time of day.”
