Mod Thoughts on Akechi, etc.
You might have noticed that the main cast is a little more forgiving towards Goro in my headcanons than they are in canon. Separates me from the pack, but it saddens me to see Goro forever isolated-when that was his problem to begin with. Not being wanted. Being treated like the plague. Not only that, but something felt really off about all of them being so ‘ugh’ towards Goro in canon. If they had been like 'omg he totes knows about the phantom thieves DON’T TALK TO HIM’ the entire time, it wouldn’t have felt so uncomfortable, but I dunno. It just felt like they all found him disgusting. The nicest thing anyone ever said to him was Ann’s 'do you need water?’ during the takoyaki scene. Please correct me if I’m wrong, because I would LOVE more proof of them being nice to Goro in canon.
Plus, it’s funny how Goro’s taking the full brunt of everyone’s hatred while Shido’s just…um…there? He kinda sorta did stuff that was bad and the end? Is it because Goro’s 'fujoshi trash’ and Shido isn’t?
So if you haven’t figured it out yet, I have a very soft spot for Goro Akechi and other sympathetic, complex 'villains’.
On I go with the power of my imagination. :) Thank you for being a part of this crazy ride.
