Paradise City by Rich Ramos

Tall and tan and young and handsome
The boy from Ipanema goes walking
And when he passes
Each girl he passes goes, ah

When he walks
He’s like a samba
That swings so cool and sways so gentle
That when he passes each girl
He passes goes, ah

- The Boy from Ipanema 

The guess monster

Tendou Satori is one of the more colourful characters in the line-up of mostly crazy athletic teenagers that is Haikyuu.
As with most of the antagonists, he gets introduced to us as kind of a douche.
This may be an understatement.
I absolutely despised him in the first few chapters he was in. The anime goes so far as to use Full Horror Movie tropes on many of his appearances. But that’s before Furudate unlocks his tragic back story and suddenly we’re looking at him in a new light, bla bla, let’s roll the tape.


The Jester

To get the obvious one out of the way first: dude is a full on circus performance. He’s loud, he’s twitchy, he’s exuberant and he has zero shame about any of it.
This is a character that thrives on the cheers of the crowd, and while I want to say he loves the attention, what he really seems to enjoy is reaction. Any and all reaction. Whether it’s people shouting his name, getting a rise out of Suga or Tsukki, even unearthing an overdose of confidence in Goshiki. What he wants is for people to react to him, be that good or bad.

He makes this happen by overdoing it a little. Ok, a lot. Tendou is a very expressive person, but all those big gestures can seem like ‘too much’ at times. All those guys in the screenshot up there are reacting to the exact same thing, but only one of them is about to pull his hair out in horror.
I’m personally convinced that a large part of this energy, of what makes Tendou, is an act. And we don’t really know what’s underneath the special effects. I do, however, believe that he knows what he’s doing and that he enjoys it.

Tendou is a character that plays everyone around him and he friggin loves doing so. He’s far from the only manipulator on the show. Think, for instance, of people like Kuroo or Daishou, who try to get a psychological edge on opponents. But Tendou is by far the most obvious, the most gleefully unsubtle out of all of them. He LOVES this stuff and it is one of his main strengths.

2 Smart, New Novels Find Humor In Fantasies Of Escape

A year-long getaway to a Greek island; a week by the sea at an arts colony: Fantasies of escape are the common premise of two new comic novels, both smart and sprightly in style, and both informed by the sad wisdom, echoing Milton’s lines in Paradise Lost, that we carry “troubl’d thoughts” and “hell within [us],” wherever we go.
