okay. okay I get what you're saying but look. pls. Syaoran is trying hard. This is the boy that jumped in a lake because it started glowing. This is the boy that got knocked out by a coconut and kidnapped by weird rabbit things. He's just a bit stuck on the whole 'getting sucked into a book thing'. He's trying his best :(
No no I absolutely agree.
I adore Syaoran very much. I’ve mentioned a couple of times that he’s in a very strange situation and is handling it a thousand times better than I ever could, hands down. No question.
But I am also reading this at a glacial pace and am inclined to type out all of my thoughts as I go. That’s just how it works. If I criticize anything any of the characters do it is always from a place of love - I believe in their abilities and (perhaps) expect them to have more agency than is actually allowed by the narrative, which is where the jokes come from.
Unless it’s Seishirou. 100% screw that guy.
