O KA Y but can we talk about the fact that matsuhana would COMPLETELY BE ALL OVER EACH OTHER TO PLAY WITH USHI but at the same time theyre protecting their little oikawa. Like they act like theyre doing it just to screw with ushi but its for oiks too
IS THIS ABOUT MY RECENT MATSUHANA SEIJOU MERMAIDS COMIC? BECAUSE YOU ARE 1000% RIGHT. They’re totally doing it to be little shits and make Ushi’s life difficult, but also because they know Oikawa doesn’t want to deal with Ushi getting all up in his business about being the figurehead of the Shiratoizawa ship and they want to shield him from that. Like, I think the rest of the Seijou mermaids would take turns being on lookout at the entrance to the lagoon to head off Ushi and his crew, but Mattsun and Makki would be there the most.
I just love love love Mattsun’s and Makki’s relatioship with Oikawa. I know Iwa-chan is the most prominent relationship in his life, but they definitely can’t be discounted. That scene where they start calling out ramen orders just before Oikawa’s serve? They’re obviously trolling, but at the same time they’re giving him reassurance that it’s okay if he fucks up/isn’t perfect all the time because they care for him and believe in him totally - the worst that will happen is that Oikawa has to buy them dinner, and they’re not going anywhere.
For Oikawa, someone who is harshly self-critical to the point of damaging his own body in order to eke out improvement, that kind of support system is really important.
OKAY WOW we went waaay off-piste there but I have a lot of feelings about the Seijou third years whoops
