After the most recent episode of Mayoiga, I’d realized that I cannot bring myself to hate Hayato. Instead, I feel so much fucking pity for him and I just want to hug him.
First of all, Hayato’s family can fuck off in addition to Mitsumune’s family. What tf is wrong with the families in this anime? I’m just so appalled, so pissed that they’ve abused him, made him act as something he doesn’t want to be, just to keep up their fucking reputation? Fuck your reputation; your child should be allowed to act like a fucking child! How dare they control his life like that? That’s so horrible.
Of course, his parents’ abusive, controlling and manipulative ways rubbed off on him, and now he projects it onto Mitsumune. Mitsumune became Hayato’s sense of “freedom”, and thus didn’t want that freedom to leave, which is why he’s angered by Masaki. She’s taking away Haya-kun’s freedom, and he feels the need to keep it under control. My brain tells me otherwise, but my hearts screams at the fact that deep down inside, Hayato cares for Mitsumune, actually loves him, but does not know the proper way to display it. I’m not trying to justify his actions (he referred to him as his puppet, for God’s sake), but both boys need help, counseling, something. Mitsumune addressed his problem, as evident by the end of the episode. Hayato needs to do the same. He needs to realize that what he is doing is not right and seek the proper help. They should be friends, not a master and his obedient servant.
The more immature, childish side of me ships them as this fucked-up yandere relationship that’ll make good yaoi fics. The more rational, mature side of me realizes the more frightening, completely serious implications this can have. I want Hayato to get help, to face his past like Mitsumune has done and get to the real Nanaki Village. I want them all to accept their past and move forward. And yes, that includes Lovepon.
