Evil mastermind or misunderstood romantic? YOU DECIDE
We were having this conversation on vent the other night (we only talk on vent when I’m drunk, so you can imagine the kind of conversation it was for the most part), and I brought up the subject of Takumi. Now, I take a very practical approach to relationships and people and it occurred to me that up til this point, apart from being a little amorous, Takumi hasn’t actually done anything wrong. Sure, he has all the emotional development of a teenager, but I don’t think he knows any other way to treat women. He hasn’t cheated on Hachi, and he’ll see her whenever she wants him to (provided his schedule allows it). Being a super busy rock star, I think this is the most she could hope for in a relationship with him.
With this in mind, is Hachi actually to blame? I guess it depends on how much responsibility you think she takes in sorting her own life out. She’s obviously very, very (very very) high maintenance, but she’s also been treated badly very recently. Lest we forget, it was after hitting rock bottom that she instigated this thing with Takumi. Now that things are going a little better for her, she wants out. That’s pretty selfish, but at the same time, understandable.
This is such an awesome show, no one is completely innocent. Oh, apart from Naoki 😀
