okay but now I can’t stop thinking about the ramifications of the Arima and Rize sibling theory???
Like, emotionally. For Arima. Because I’ve maybe been thinking a lot about Arima lately.
Because right now, that would mean that Arima is following out orders to exterminate the man who took in, raised, and clearly loved his sister. A man who was a father to her.
And Arima probably never had a father. Probably never had anyone like that at all in his life.
And Rize came to take that so much for granted. She ignored Shachi’s rules. Disregarded his warnings and decided to eat as much as she wanted wherever she wanted and that caught the attention of basically everyone, including the CCG, V, Aogiri, and any other group Furuta is part of.
If Arima knows all of this… this fight, which he will no doubt carry out with the same mechanical, empty efficiency, is intensely personal for him. This is the man who gave his sister what he could never have. The man she discarded despite him being someone that Arima could only ever dream of having.
Or has the CCG and V successfully squashed that dream in Arima?
Sasaki told him that he thought of Arima as his father. Arima probably never had a father. But his sister did. And now he is tasked with killing that man in the name of the organization that deprived him of everything a child is supposed to have.
Gosh, I’m so emotional about this character. I’m so emotional over what is basically a crack theory at this point.
PLEASE SHOW US ARIMA’S CHILDHOOD, ISHIDA.
