It will be wonderful to live with me again. Wonderful.
AND LAST BUT NOT LEAST my very favorite horrible bird
this makes 8/8! but also… 1/3 :> but the other two will have to wait until after con. I also want to do a few others later, like Tohri and Ousama, but I’m really glad I was able to finish the main eight!
So as you may or may not know I loooooove to look at symbolism in pieces of media and literature. And what better than to do it for the pigeon dating sim, where the the characters are literally symbols themselves (bird symbolism fuck yeah!) At first I thought Moa had just used certain birds because of how they acted and which ones she liked. But no she really looked into the symbolism of these things! Which makes you think that maybe this game had more thought put into than you’d initially think.
Just a warning this contains both BBL and Holiday Star spoilers so I wouldn’t suggest reading it unless you’ve completed both routes.
So without further ado here is a very long post analyzing the use of bird symbolism in the game Hatoful Boyfriend.
How long are you going to take? How many more must die Hitori? How many more must you torture? They tortured me Hitori. They tortured me because of you. Do you enjoy torture Hitori? I thought you wanted to live with me for the rest of your life?
