AHR getting a live-action movie was a surprise. Masahiro Higashide playing Kou was double the surprise. Poor heart. Anyway! I'm not sure what to think about it yet. I agree with a friend who said that the ending would definitely be different from the manga. I just wonder how different it would be.
About the latest chapter... I find it funny that I disliked how Futaba spent time with Kou, haha. Such a Kikuchi fan, I am. But it's great to see Kou trying to move forward by checking old times. He was driven strongly by Futaba, which makes it sweet. And Kou is making his moves to the "representative" too, lol. I really don't want Kikuchi to find them together, though. That will break his heart so badly, huhu.
I'm looking forward to watch this movie, but i think Masahiro looks too old to play Kou's role lol I was talking about it with a br friend here on MH and i think some different actors would look way better in that role like Okada Masaki (from Mirai Nikki, Hana Kimi...) and Hongo Kanata (from Tennis no Oujisama movie). I wonder how different the ending will be too.
About the lastest chapter, i loved it! Go for it, Kou! (loool) I reeeeeeally hope that Kikuchi will discover that they went somewhere together, he is a cool guy but his relationship with Futaba is so annoying, i can't stand him -.-'
well kudos to Kou for trying to open up more. He can't just be brooding all the time and ruin the friendship circle's mood.
Okay so I've grown to like the Kikuchi x Futaba pairing beause it started as a really innocent relationship of two people trying to grow as a couple. But Kou x Futaba is I dunno- it has more chemistry. And if Kou should change in character and be more aggressive then... OMG i'd be so torn apart!
Nonono Kikuchi x Futaba can't possibly happen T.T
Kou x Futaba is absolutelly the best pairing <3
Kikuchiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii He deserves to be happy We all know that Futaba is bound to return to Kou, it's just a matter of method and time.
I'm also growing to like the triangle of Shuuko, Kominato, and Kou's brother (whatever his name is). Do you think Shuuko is wavering? She had been rejected but it was not because the teacher didn't like her. I think Kominato is a nice guy; the happy-face-forever-but-I-am-also-worried-deep-inside type of guy, so he's likable. Do you think he will get the girl? Shuuko seems... occupied with Futaba and Kou situation, though.
Kikuchi deserves happiness, that's the reason why he can't stay with Futaba, neither of them can be happy now ):
I dunno, i guess Shuuko is wavering... Kominato is a pretty decent guy, he likes her, he is so simple minded and straightforward, i like him. Kou's brother is a good guy but i don't know why i think Shuuko x Kominato is way better than Shuuko x Tanaka sensei. And yeah, she's rather busy thinking in the others but latest chapter Kominato talked with her and lightened the mood telling her it's not her fault whatever happens between those two.
Tanaka! That's it. I also think she fits Kominato better. After all he is closer to her than Tanaka-sensei is, he knows her struggles and how much she loves her friends. Definitely a yes. <3
Yeah, that's what i think too. Tanaka is a good guy but Kominato fits her better and I guess she is realizing it.
Chapter 40 is out.
Futaba seems so carefree while saying that she's there to help Kou and still keeping up the "representative" mask. At times I believe that she is serious about moving on and likes Kikuchi, but at other times it feels like she's still looking back a lot. And the way she wants to help Kou is affected by the past, not because of the current situation.
Kou, on the other hand.... I'm also happy to see him growing. It's about time, boy. That scene on the bus is just pure love, I like it so much. Too bad, too bad... But that determination is something. I'm just sad that there will be wounds everywhere for three of them along the way. We all know the ending, but the way there will be painful. My Kikuchi T^T
Here's me on one side hoping that Futaba can clear up the situation with Kikuchi, but on the other side rooting for Kou to get the girl back.
waaaaa I loved this chapter!
so much conflict, but so relatable. And so erm, human. nothing ambitious, no deus ex machina, but just the simple keeping of a little secret that can tear a relationship apart
I'm so sad for Kikuchi-kun, but Kou... I'm always a sucker for aggressive behavior. Specially when it comes to being with the person you like. I think it was a good thing that Kou spent a time being wishy-washy and annoying, because he needed time for his feelings to stew a bit. Futaba had a fault in all of this of course- if she hadn't gone out with Kou maybe he wouldn't have gotten any mixed signals. But it's also because she had fondness for him all this time, even in her subconscious, to be with Kou too.
I wonder if he really knows. It's so painful to see him acting like he doesn't, waiting for the girl to confess. But that's him being a gentleman. Added with the uneasiness he has been feeling all this time... I want to hug him so much.
