In which Saiki comes across a charismatic little girl that somehow reminded him of a certain someone he was escaping from on his way home from school just now.
But he was sure he had never seen nor encountered this strange girl before in his life, so he was really troubled and bothered by the fact that this pink-haired kid caught up to him, grabbed his sleeve, and chanted with the most ecstatic voice full of glee a little toddler could muster,
TO BE CONTINUED (nah jk just a teaser for that idea where Saiki meets his future daughter)
What if anti is going to target robin next? Ever think of that?
ooooh that would be a twist! (especially since robin said that his “hands were tied” while commenting on that glitch incident yesterday lol O-O)
plus, i love meta stuff, so that would be cool to see ^-^. Although, considering Robin is the one mostly responsible for Anti being Anti, it’s interesting to think about whether he’d even be on the opposing side of the green glitch, were he to be included in the narrative….
I really hope Yusaku’s character arc culminates as him being done with the past and starting to live for the present/future and he comes to realise the memories he has now - of his friends, of his duels, etc - are far more precious than what he lost
The reason I like the idea of golden boy gav so much is because of the masks he puts on to seem confident and flirty and so-much-better-than-you. Not really because I like the idea that underneath he’s super Depressed™ and insecure inside and needs love and attention, but rather that after a while, he starts to lose himself.
Like threads slowly coming undone, he puts on his mask every day purely because it’s become routine - sure, he used to be a scared kid trying to run with the big boys, but now he just. Can’t remember what it’s like not to pretend, not to play his part, it’s who he is whether he likes it or not.
And it scares him. Because he doesn’t like the things he does when he’s the golden boy, he just does them. And he can’t stop, he’s afraid that underneath all the glitter and gold he’s just… mediocre. Which I think is way more relatable than him putting on a performance and secretly hiding a tragic past or something underneath.
I don’t know, it gives me a feeling of unease, something too close to reality and I feel like he’d struggle with his mind a lot, trying to work out what he’s feeling as himself, or what he just thinks he should be feeling.
Putting on masks doesn’t just affect how people see you after all, it changes how you see yourself and makes you question things and it slowly drives you mad.
