When compared to F!Kana’s, his personality is a void. F!Kana has deep, relatable fears and worries (supports with Foleo and Shigure), is revealed to be able to outsmart a young adult (supports with Dwyer), has artistic interests (supports with Mitama), is very good at math (supports with Siegbert), while M!Kana is just… mama’s boy who low-key wants to be an adult and gets friendzoned.
(I’m saying “low-key” ‘cause F!Kana shows to be more mature than him, and on multiple occasions in her various supports. She gets a job on her own, delivers things on her own, then goes and buys a ring for her dad with the money SHE earned. She organises a math festival with only the help of Siegbert. She accepts the fact that, despite being Kamui’s daughter, she is not always his priority in a world torned by war. From what I remember, M!Kana just does stuff for the army in his supports with his dad, and not on his own initiative but because of a competition.)
F!Kana’s personality is much more diverse and her fears are very relatable and deep for a character this young, as I find the fact that she’s joyful but feels terribly lonely very interesting. She felt lonely for most of her short life waiting for her dad to come and visit her, so when he finally comes back and gets ATTACKED she becomes so furious she changes into a dragon to protect him. But even now she’s part of the army, her parents are still very busy with their war duties and she can’t spend much time with them, so her loneliness still cripples her… so much that she REGULARLY leaves the camp to hide in a bush and cry discreetly about it (supports with Foleo). Her supports with Shigure, in which she shows a strong dislike of teenagers, hint at her own fear of becoming a teenager: in her head, a teenager is almost an adult, and an adult doesn’t spend time with their parents anymore. And she is gonna become a teenager soon…
She feels like she’s running out of time, time with her dad that she was robbed of because of the Deeprealms (and the war).
So she feels very lonely AND is haunted by the thought of her parents leaving her once she’s a grown up, a stage of her life that is just around the corner… And her parents are so busy dealing with the army and the war that she bottles everything up and doesn’t share her worries with them. “I know you’re busy…”, she says in her My Room lines. This poor dear thinks her parents have better things to do than listening to her rambling.
The fact that she is able to bottle up everything is very impressive (and very mature and selfless for her age), and very tragic as well.
So that’s it, I think F!Kana is a much better, well-developped character than M!Kana, and that’s why I love her and don’t like him
De-age Strain is super cute! What if de-age Strain and genderbend Strain got together? All of a sudden Munakata is a bitty girl, but still like fifty years old mentally. How would Scepter 4 treat her, especially Awashima and Fushimi? And what if it were Fushimi who got affected by the Strains instead, like how would Munakata treat her? Then the twin Strains have this great plan to have both Munakata and Fushimi both be little girls at the same time.
I’m just imagining
tiny girl Munakata dressed in like a frilly cute version of Scepter
4’s uniform sitting on cushions at her desk and looking at everyone
with the same keen gaze and going ‘oya’ at everything. It’s extremely
weird for everyone because of course their first instinct upon seeing
that Captain is now a tiny girl is to spoil her and buy her ribbons
and cute things and instead Munakata politely declines and then her
eyes shine as she spots this thick book talking about the history of
Japanese law. Awashima would probably have trouble controlling
herself a little because she is very fond of cute things and of
course she wants to hug Captain but on the other hand this is her
King and she needs to show restraint. Tiny female Munakata is also
instantly attracted to Fushimi, who tries to be mean to her but of
course he’s weak to small children and soon he’s giving her piggyback
rides around the office with this completely flat resigned expression
on his face. For extra fun say the de-age Strain is one whose powers
just de-age your body but all your memories and such stay intact,
just imagine Scepter 4 having a run in with Homra and tiny girl
Munakata steps forward in his dress and pigtails and frills all ‘oh,
Suoh, I see you are continuing to behave like barbarians.’ Mikoto
just blinks at him and wonders who the brat is, Munakata laughs and
states that despite his looks he is still able to face Mikoto as an
equal. Meanwhile Kusanagi and Totsuka are both slowly realizing that
the small cute girl in the Scepter 4 clothes is actually Munakata
while Yata’s still confused and Fushimi’s facepalming.
Tiny girl Fushimi
would be spoiled within an inch of her life, especially if she
doesn’t have her memories and is just shy tiny Fushimi in a dress.
Munakata of course is pretty much ready to adopt her, he commissions
a hundred adorable blue dresses and has her come sit in his office
and play with a tiny stuffed Munakuma. Awashima would be in super big
sister mode, taking care of Fushimi and leading her around by the
hand while all the other ladies of Scepter 4 coo over her. The
alphabet boys all want to play with her too but Fushimi’s very quiet
and gloomy and probably finds some of them to be too much, like she
doesn’t like Doumyouji because he’s too loud. Tiny Fushimi who
retains his memories would also be cute, like similar Homra run-in
scenario Yata sees little girl Fushimi and assumes that Fushimi’s
lost his memories, Yata’s all aw look at how cute Saruhiko is. That’s
when adorable sweet little girl Fushimi sticks his hands under his
skirt and pulls out a hundred knives, attacking with all the
ferociousness of a small ribbon-bedecked pomeranian.
Both Munakata and
Fushimi being affected, just imagine them as cute little friends.
Munakata’s age is a little older than Fushimi’s so she takes it upon
herself to be big sister to small shy Fushimi, probably trying to
give Fushimi all kinds of advice and teach her new things. The squad
dresses them up in matching clothes and takes pictures of them
together, Munakata smiling sweetly and Fushimi looking all shy and
nervous. Awashima finds them in the library at one point with
Munakata reading to Fushimi from an advanced history textbook and
being very interested in the political upheavals of feudal Japan,
while Fushimi is somehow way too fixated on bloody battles. If they
both keep their memories Fushimi is probably extra gloomy because
Munakata is very keen on being a big sister anyway and wanting to
hold Fushimi’s hand and bond over their predicament, while Fushimi
would rather just go hide in his room and be miserable until the
whole thing passes.
YOUNG MAN YOU ARE IN SERIOUS TROUBLE YOU CAN’T JUST BEHAVE LIKE THIS WHAT THE FUCK JUST BECAUSE I’M THE “COOL AUNT” DOESN’T MEAN THERE ARE NO RULES HERE YOU DON’T GET TO JUST LAY EGGS WHAT THE FUCK YOU’RE 7 YEARS OLD AND YOU’VE NEVER LAID BEFORE SIR, NEVER, AND NOW???? YOU JUST????
