(@ your last post) you're saying that the post is not only because of your "feelings" for him. so what would be a good reason to not finish a man like this just how he deserves it? he did the same with eri? with a little child? i'm not trying to be rude just trying to understand that part
!! THAT’S SUCH A GOOD QUESTION OKAY, I’M USED TO BULLSHITTERY, so that’s really noice. (’:
So, what I was trying to say with that is pretty much that Horikoshi gave Overhaul so much backstory to a point where I just can’t understand the need for him to be executed like that.
First of all, we got to get to the actual plan, which was to save the Yakuza and give them a new source of power to rise again. At this point I was questioning whether or not his behavior was logical. I mean, sure, there’s some villains that are simply fucked up in the head just because. Just for the sheer fact to have something evil around, you know. But Overhauls behavior was so cramped and forced, it just seemed like Horikoshi was pressuring a deeper point.
Then we got to the point where his boss was mentioned, where there was actual feelings getting attached between them. The Boss was like a father to Overhaul, saying that he was shown so much kindness and support that he felt the need to give it back to him.
So, Overhaul isn’t a selfish villain. He was trying to give his ‘Pops’ all this kindness back but didn’t know how. Judging from the fact that he was at the boss’ side since he was a little kid, I’m guessing that his own backstory isn’t really sugar coated. Which means that he doesn’t know how to cope with feelings or any kind of emotions for that matter. But still he was determined to give his father figure a good life, to make his father figures dream come true. He didn’t do that for himself, but for his Pops.
I’m not saying that what he did to Eri was okay or that it was a good way to handle it (or that I’m fine with that istg), I’m just saying that he was trying so hard to save the people that cared about him and showed him kindness. But as the Boss himself realized, Overhaul didn’t understand that he was doing something wrong. He didn’t understand that that was not a way to treat another human, for he doesn’t know how to act around others.
I feel like he had so much potential to be someone bigger.
I mean, Tomura was looking for a healer?? They had him on a stretcher, when he was staring at them with blank eyes and a wish to die after losing everything and feeling like he dissapointed his Pops.
I just think they could’ve used him better and gave him the actual role he deserved.
He’s a villain, okay, he’s meant to be evil.
I cant help that I love those evil bitches so much, ffs.
