One reason why I love Juhaku is because it defied my and fandom’s expectations. Like many in fandom, I thought they would just wind up using each other until Hakuryuu defected back to Alibaba’s side. Instead they ended up caring about each deeply and I think that’s really beautiful and touching.
It’s annoying when people say that JuKou(Judal x Kougyoku) fans are just romanticizing their relationship. BRUH JUST LOOK AT AliKou. THEY’RE FREAKIN’ FRIENDS. IT’S OBVIOUS THAT THEIR RELATIONSHIP IS JUST PLATONIC AND PEOPLE ARE LIKE: OMG THEY’RE SO CANON! bleah. Go read Ohtaka’s Magi manga omakes and tegakis JuKou haters :P
