if i dont share this id cry

ive always been hesitant to call the scene where mihashi and abe hold hands for the first time a confession scene bc of like context (abe is trying to calm mihashi down so he can pitch; theyre not even close to being friends yet) but its really hard to ignore how blatantly it resembles one and i dont think its an accident. theyre alone, holding hands, and sharing a deeply emotional moment together (they like..both cry)

something else id like to point out is language use tho, because its something i didnt put a lot of thought into at first bc its easy to just take subtitles for granted

for instance i always assumed “daisuki” held a lot more romantic connotations than “suki” but i was Wrong and i never thought to question it (this is from a forum post on word ref i think it explains it well):

abe and mihashi both use language like this to express that they like each other, which ofc could just be interpreted as a platonic exchange. but keeping in mind the romantically charged context its hard to just stop at that conclusion. like  its important to remember oofuri is a work of fiction and literature and is going to manipulate language to hide certain things that in this case.. are basically in plain view. 

i think also higuchi is counting on us to read it a certain way bc its easy to overlook something like two boys “confessing” and mark it as entirely platonic 

oh heres the scene again for anyone who wants to watch it x

i was hoping that one day you would change your mind and that we would start again. we just passed the half way point and i feel like i need to admit that it’s over. i dont wanna cry anymore. and you dont seem to care enough to talk about it
