the thing is kira and kars are scary in how inhuman they are. in how unrelatable they are. kira is fear in the uncanny valley, yet in the normal. kira is scary because he could exist. he could be your coworker. he might watch you as you go to a cafe daily. he’s a serial killer. very real, yet just far away enough
i didnt understand kars’s genius my first read round. he’s scary because his morality is inhuman
i can’t speak much on diavolo, i havent read him critically and i personally have a lot of qualms with the writing surrounding character in vento so i’d have to talk about him differently but…
pucci, dio, and valentine are scary villains because they could be any of us.
