Well, he’s a self-centered, arrogant, prideful little shit. He genuinely does believe that he’s smarter
than and knows better than everyone else. He refuses to share the burden of
stopping the killing game with anyone else because he’s cynical and paranoid,
and to some degree, his paranoia is justified—but he’s also at the extreme end
of paranoia and skepticism, meaning everyone’s refusal to work with him or
trust him is something of a self-fulfilling prophecy.
But it’s also because to some degree, he honestly believes
he’s the center of the universe. He refuses to confide in anyone else, ask for
help, or open up to others partly because he thinks they’re not worth it, and partly because he thinks The Incredible Ouma
Kokichi is such an enigma and a mystery and a genius that those other people
could never hope to understand him.
For all that he’s smart, he’s genuinely really immature at
heart. That can be one of his strengths, because his childishness is so tied to
his humanity, but it’s also the reason why he’s such a brat sometimes.
Moreover, it’s why he’s absolutely unapologetic about being a brat. Ouma might
not like human suffering or killing or anything that genuinely hurts people,
but it’s true that he does get his kicks out of one-upping others and pranking
the shit out of them—a bit too much, sometimes. That’s yet another trait he has
in common with Beato, now that I think about it.
His immaturity also makes him stubborn. His childish refusal to admit when he’s wrong or when he’s
crossed the line is exactly why he takes things much, much too far in Chapter
4, and why he goes so blank when Saihara calls him out on it. His reaction upon
being proven wrong isn’t to admit to his mistakes, but rather to get angry,
petty, and somewhat resentful.
And of course, he’s a liar. He’s a liar and a hypocrite, to some degree, because while he has no problems
with lying to others, seeing himself as someone who truly understands the
essence of lies, he gets really, really pissed off whenever anyone else tries
to lie to him. Because he feels the
rest of the group doesn’t understand him, or lies for that matter, he doesn’t
like whenever any of the rest of them keep secrets or try to deceive others.
Which is understandable, but also definitely hypocritical coming from a
character who’s such a self-proclaimed liar and reminds everyone of it every
Even when he told Himiko in the Chapter 3 post-trial that he
“didn’t lie to himself about his own feelings,” that was fairly hypocritical of
him, considering we know he definitely lied to himself about his feelings
towards the killing game and towards Saihara in particular. Ouma is really,
really good at spotting the same flaws in others that he sees in himself—he just
doesn’t like anyone else reminding him that he still has those flaws, too.
To put it bluntly… he can be a huge jackass. And I love him.
And he’s my son. He’s extremely flawed, and those flaws are constantly brought
to light by the narrative, expanded on, and really help make his good points
stand out all the more by the time we see more information about him in later
This was a fun ask, anon! Thank you for sending it!
I have a lovely friend who I am trying to convince to get on Tumblr. She is so wonderful, I feel like she would have thousands of followers in like a snap. In the meantime, however, I’ve been sending her links to Tumblr posts she might find interesting, and yesterday…
Her: I wanted to find that Tumblr link you sent me about the guy taking care of the crow and then the crow coming back with friends, so I searched my gmail for your name and murder
I’ve made a 2nd blog, an Art-Only Page to showcase full-colored artworks! (mostly reblogged from this page though) There will be no other text posts/asks on this page or anything that needs navigation. For peeps who are interested to see art with colors only, if you’re so inclined you can check it out!
I think something that makes people with BPD more susceptible to being abused is that we’re constantly told that our emotions are “innapropriate” and that we’re overreacting so when someone actually does something to hurt us or is abusive we always second guess ourselves and think that we’re overreacting so we stay with people who are hurting us, or allow ourselves to be abused because we think if we talk about it we’ll be accused of overreacting. It’s very easy to manipulate people with BPD into think we’re being dramatic because we are constantly told that we are doing just that.

31. Pick one OC of yours and explain what their tumblr blog would be like (what they reblog, layout, anything really)
LD’s blog would look like this
and it wouldn’t have a title or an avatar just thousands of reblogged memes and shit posts.
Ramia would eventually get her own tumblr blog and discover sports anime. Her blog would be all flowery and have side sprites of her favorite pairings. The content would be mostly reblogged fanart and gifsets though she would also occasionally post rants about irl stuff. Her theme would be like this
Sorian wouldn’t have a tumblr account.
Nero’s tumblr blog would be minimalist like this
and he’d be posting random photos of things (with filter!) from his phone and nothing else.
