Okay honestly one of my favorite things about Ouran is Kyoya’s character development???
He’s one of the most static characters; he’s calm, cool, collected, intelligent, and the obvious moral compass of the group,
But as the season goes on you start to notice a few cracks…like, the kind where you see the real Kyoya poking through, begging for someone to let him out???
As you learn his backstory you realize that while he’s the mother of the group, he’s actually the child of his family, which makes SO MUCH SENSE,
BECAUSE HE CAN EXERCISE CONTROL WITH THE HOST CLUB THAT HE NEVER GETS AT HOME.
And I feel like that somehow corresponds with everything he does within the club, and why he’s so meticulous about everything, because maybe in his subconscious somewhere he thought to himself,
"If my father were to ever catch me in this club, at least I would have something to show for it,“ which is why he’s so undeniably efficient with all that he controls.
And the way he feels about Tamaki is absolutely PRECIOUS to see, because at first you feel like he thinks of Tamaki as a genuine moron, (which is how I felt really, I can’t really speak for everyone,) and then you get to the, “And so Kyoya Met Him!” episode.
Which is when you finally get to see how exactly their friendship began in the first place, the history behind our daddy and mommy of the Host Club. And you realize, “Hey, I wasn’t that far off. Kyoya DID think he was a moron, at one point.”
And while Kyoya still thinks Tamaki is an idiot, it’s more of a term of endearment at this point, rather than an insult. Because as weary as he is of Tamaki’s antics, when he thought he was gonna lose him, Kyoya absolutely lost it.
And that was A FREAKING PLEASURE to see because you realize NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES KYOYA CALLS HIM AN IDIOT, OR MORON, OR REFERS TO HIM AS A BURDEN, you know in your heart that that silly blonde prince means the world to Kyoya, and that is in fact his best friend.
So throughout the season, obviously each character makes their own significant steps to becoming more individual, coming into themselves, but Kyoya’s developement is definitely one of my favorites.
i just love that Jimin and Tae went to high school together
we already know Jimin was nervous going into school and he didnt even want to talk to any of Tae’s friends at first because he was self-conscious of his busan accent
but then imagine Tae always telling everybody to treat Jimin well and reminding (nagging) them even when they’re months into school
imagine Tae always making sure his friends include Jimin in everything
we also know that they pigged out together all the time during school and exchanged snacks too because they were able to back then
but imagine when Jimin and Tae go back to their dorm, and they study together and freak about the same tests or complain about their teachers
like can you imagine them running in the hallways because shit they’re late but their legs are sore as hell because of dance practice the night before
we know Jimin was the last to join and knowing Jimin thought about quitting before debut, imagine Jimin and Tae skipping class together because Jimin can’t handle the stress and Tae goes along to support him
imagine them calling for each other and shouting their nicknames across hallways and stairwells “Jiminie!” “Taetae!”
imagine them sharing lockers or realizing they accidentally put their supplies and textbooks in each other’s backpacks
Tae and Jimin constantly humming through class or tapping their desks, infuriating their classmates, because they’re still getting a hang of their new songs
Tae and Jimin voting for each other as class clown (or class hottie)
we know Jimin actually studies a lot meanwhile Tae zones out so imagine Jimin helping Tae get his work done and Tae helps Jimin relax
just imagine Tae and Jimin basically being the best high school friends ever and graduating together as students but also as successful idols- and definitely knowing that its partly because they had each other all along the way
