Who can resist that face with those eyes dripping with tears?
Shameless fangirl reblog. I promise not to get into the habit of doing this. It’s just, I’m finally catching up on Naruto (can you believe I was almost 60+ chapters behind? This is what happens when you decide to take a hiatus from Shonen Jump series that updates like…once a week.) and I am really feeling this new, stronger, more mature Naruto.
Seriously, it’s becoming a problem. My obsession.
LOLOL! Despite all that he’d suffered through, the darkness of humanity he’d encountered first hand, and is fated to have his soul devoured by a demon at the most triumphant moment of his life…a thirteen year old boy will still be a thirteen year old boy. And what can beat sweets, I ask you?
I was probably predisposed towards Kikuchi from the get go. I’ve always had a soft spot for sweet, straightforward, and honest guys. His slightly aggressive nature and the fact that he plays an instrument is just a definitive cherry on top! Oh, and the fact that he tried so hard to sympathize with his crush’s predicament…but couldn’t quite conceal his own elation at this unexpected chance? Cute. Too cute, Touma-chan!
Take the chance and run with it, Kikuchi! :)
“Finally you’re facing me. Even though you are fine like this…The way you look, facing forward…It’s fine like this. Therefore, don’t do things like this for someone like Mabuchi. Facing forward like you do now, there is someone who says that Yoshioka-san is perfect this way.”
To all the Kou fans out there…that’s it. It’s done, this scene completely just nailed it for me. I’m officially 100% a Kikuchi-fan and will cheer for him 100% of the way, despite the fact that, with my many years of shoujo-manga reading experience, I know full well that Futaba will choose Kou in the end. Again, my heart goes out to the wonderfully sweet, kind, attentive, yet forever-alone second lead! Come on, Futaba! Can’t you see that shine, that sparkle in the eyes? Kikuchi is alive!
“The pain will only be temporary. You guys will be fine. Don’t end up like me. Don’t get caught up by duty. Cry, yell, toughen up, boast…For your way of life…Laugh!”
Oh my God, what is this!? I’m bawling my eyes out! Tenki is by far one of my favorite characters in this series and he’s (SPOILER ALERT!) dying!? Please say it isn’t so! What is this, what is this, what is this!?
I’m freaking out.
