I see a bunch of hate for Kokichi cause of the things he did, but at least he wasn’t in denial about his talent which postponed a class trail and didn’t get annoyed by the one person who believed in him and acted like he cared once that person died. (I’m sorry I’m a salty person who is annoyed at all the Ouma hate and nobody talking about Himiko and you’re the one person I found who seems to somewhat agree, ignore this if you want just know you’re not alone in the boat of saying she’s useless)
I fail to see what Himiko does other then ‘nyeh!’, ‘it’s REAL MAGIC!!!!’ and otherwise being a cutesy girl, which I guess is why she is loved. Having Chiaki’s va - who was a leagues better character than Himiko could ever dream of - also helps. I mean, I wanted to like her but when someone is stubborn about their ‘magic’, it’s an instant eh to me and I tend to dislike characters with such personalities.
And yeah, poor Tenko. I’ve seen everything leading up to chapter 3 and Himiko truly only began caring for her when it was too late, it was nothing like Mahiru and Hiyoko or Aoi and Sakura, who I all love… so yeah, poor Tenko indeed, trying to compete with Angie and getting nothing out of it but Himiko’s ‘don’t assume stuff about me’ thing…
… if anything, it made me like Tenko’s character more. I just wish she wasn’t such a huge Himiko apologist, her character deserved better :/
(let’s not kid ourselves, she literally treated Himiko like she could do no wrong, much like Shuuichi with Kaede but just even … pronounced? So yeah, poor Tenko, her character deserved better :/)
Himiko is a pure cinnamon roll who can do no wrong in anyone’s eyes but mine and yours, it seems. And then they dare to call fans like me ‘Kokichi apologists’ lmao :D
Having Himiko be a survivor is just a huge slap in the face for me, to keep all of the above short ^^ Especially when much better characters like Kaede died :/
