You know what I noticed about the Komaeda OVA? There was no mention or appearance of Nanami (save for the little silhouette during the flashback to Ko’s death). Now, I understand that there’s way more evidence that Komaeda has feelings for Hinata, and one of the most painful things for him to remember is Hinata’s smile, but the complete absence of Nanami also says something. Considering that she doesn’t appear at all, distorted or otherwise, this could mean that the absolute most painful thing for Komaeda to remember was Nanami. Her memory was so painful that he just blocked her out altogether to spare him the pain. At least with Hinata, he saw some resemblance of Hinata’s face, it’s just that it was distorted. But he didn’t remember Nanami at all, which means that she’s an even more painful memory to bring up. Now, I’m not saying that Komanami is canon here over Komahina, but I’m saying that Komaeda may have cared for Nanami to some strong level that you have to admit that even platonic Komanami could be canon.
This took forever to do since I’m not really used to digital drawing but I love how it turned out. I was originally gonna draw them with their shirts on but I was too lazy lol! Their shoulders look fabulous tho ;) Hope you guys like it!! <3
