I hope it's not a bother but- Mind telling us why Byakuya Togami got so high in you DR ranking ? I like this character a lot, so I would be interested in what you think of him, as I love your metas and writing so much!
It’s absolutely not a bother! I don’t think I’ve ever had a
chance to write much about Togami before, so this should be fun.
I would honestly consider Togami one of the DR characters who has grown the most over the course of the entire series. His arc of character development is consistent while remaining believable, and I honestly find myself enjoying all the new content that’s been provided on him—even his scenes in dr3, while short, were enjoyable, and I’m incredibly interested in keeping up with the DR: Togami novels and finding out more about the Togami family in general.
Honestly, it was a surprise when I first realized just how highly I would rank Togami’s character. I hadn’t really thought of him as one of my favorite characters before—certainly, I didn’t think he would be when I started dr1. He’s rude, blunt, absolutely merciless towards others’ feelings, and it didn’t seem like the narrative would be able to pull off him achieving any development or growth without it feeling stiff and unrealistic. However… really, he just grew on me at some point.
