I love your art, and knowing that Minato won't put up with anyone ELSE picking on Souji is the greatest thing. (Akira really does need to start paying attention, though.)
Any of the other protags giving Souji shit? Minato turns into Souji’s personal bodyguard. Which. Is. A rather funny concept to grasp because here’s this tall monolith-build motherfucker and then this tiny, sassy child that will FIGHT and yet be defeated just by being picked up off the ground.
I also like to imagine Souji and Minato subtly fighting for Akira’s affection… Or, more like, Souji trying to gain Akira’s affection and Minato cockblocking him at every opportunity.
