about manga -- tsukiyma said something about being on a date with hinami <comparing them to nishiki and touka> and that kind of squicked me a little, what do you think
you’re talking about this page right?
personally i see this more as tsukiyama just trying to piss off nishiki by bringing kimi into the conversation any way he can because he’s a jackass like that. and while he may be a jackass he’s definitely not a jackass with any interest in hinami. i remember when i saw this scene i thought the wording was a little funny, but the word “date” isn’t really implicitly romantic. it could easily be substituted with the word “outing” or something and retain virtually the same meaning. (unless the original japanese was more specific with wording or smth?)
to summarize i think it’s more of a jab at nishiki than anything actually relevant to hinami and i mean. i see literally no reason at all to read that as having romantic implications at all because he literally got up ten minutes before this page happened to huff a handkerchief in a public bathroom. i think it’s pretty safe to assume that he’s not interested in hinami in that kind of context whatsoever.
i’ve seen a few people talking about this lately but i mean honestly. how many times does tsukiyama have to jizz in his pants in a public bathroom while huffing eau de kaneki before it’s clear that kaneki’s the only one he’s interested in like that?
