Posting these too because these two boys are kind of my OTP in this dorama. It’s kind of put me off with how their relation is handled on this last episode though. I’m perfectly okay with how Shouta casually asking Yoshitaka to ‘be good friends’ with him (because Shouta is a shameless kid lol), but with how Yoshitaka slowly agree to shake Shouta’s hand? Uh, what happened to his hatred toward Shouta? He went as far as said that he doesn’t want to study in the same school as Shouta anymore and even wrote about how Shouta cheated during the English exam but now suddenly he agree to reconcile with him on the last episode? Sure. That’s perfectly IC right. *sarcasm*
Since I ship them, of course I’m happy with how they shake hand and stare at each other’s eyes for a good seconds until Shouta’s father stop the melodrama(?) scene and how they seems really starting to get along during the entrance day as they steal a glance at each other’s when they are anxiously waiting for their new homeroom teacher. But I kind of want to see Yoshitaka lashes out on Shouta at first for everything that he did to him until now before finally agree to forgive him. :\
They’re still cute together though, of course. They make me want to see how their high school life will be. Also Nei, you better make gifs of these YoshiShota scene okay. :9
Masaki from Koukou Nyuushi episode 13 aka the final episode. I don’t even know where to start talking about this episode because FEELINGS. Too many feelings in such a short time. Not only about Junichi, but about Kouichi and Tanabe family as a whole too, about the last criminal’s reason for helping Junichi’s revenge plan, about the teachers and how each of them start to move on after the exam, and about how uselessly handsome Tokuyama Hidenori in this dorama because Konishi-sensei doesn’t really contribute to the story. (lmao)
But I really really love Junichi’s character in this dorama. Not because he’s portrayed by Masaki (well, that’s one of the reason too…), but because he’s a kind of twisted kid. He’s not pure evil, he just love his Nii-san too much to the point he literally will do anything for Kouichi. Heck, he even went as far as ‘hunting down’ every anon who bad-mouthing Kouichi on his website. But because he love his Nii-san too much and is so determined to have revenge, he did it without thinking twice that his actions are wrong even though it should be obvious with how clever he is. I love how he went from smiling happily when Kouichi asked him if he did all of these for him to making a heartbroken expression when Kouichi told him that he’s actually making Kouichi feels worse. I especially love how this last episode made us see that even though he looks like a genius, he also has a flaw – the lack of willingness to take risk for his own action. In the end, he acknowledged that maybe what he did is really just a stupid thing.
For those who haven’t watched this dorama yet, you should really watch it! It’s just one more episode until this dorama finished, so this episode (and the episode before this) is full of shocking revelations. So far I really like the revelations of Kyouko-sensei’s and Murai-sensei’s backstory. Especially Murai-sensei. Also my theory about Junichi was proven right (; v ;)b. (hover over that italic text for spoiler :9)
Now all that left is the revelation of the last person who support the plan, which will be covered in the last episode obviously (with Murai-sensei went “No way… Even though I respect him/her…” during the preview). Also it looks like someone will decide to take the blame on his/herself and hands a resignation letter. ;__;
Bonus: Halu as a high school student during Kyouko-sensei’s flashback
