monthly ao haru ride rant because why the fuck not
this month we had this cute futabaxtouma moment with the matching keychains
and the fandom went apeshit crazy
one half because that’s just so goddamn cute
and the other because they claim futaba did it so she could make touma feel more at ease bc in the bottom she doesnt love him and that it was way too awkward and stupid and blah blah
which might be truth, i gotta admit
you all seem to be forgetting something important:
FUTABA SAID SHE WAS GOING TO TRYYYYYYY TO FALL IN LOVE WITH TOUMA IN THE FIRST PLACE
futaba wasn’t over kou yet when touma confessed and snatched her away from kou. she even said she could be using him to forget about her feelings and well, it’s her problem tbh. SO yes, their relationship is going to be awkward. why? because it’s her first boyfriend. you don’t usually know what the fuck you should do during dates or during these kind of times and that’s why she wasn’t so sure about giving him that charm. can you blame her????
y’all acting like she would feel sooooo0o0o0 at ease with kou instead. PFFT. if she was dating kou instead of touma she would’ve felt JUST as awkward as she feels with touma right now.
it’s not a matter of who she’s dating here, it’s her first time goddammit. AND she’s trying to find out if she’ll develop actual real love feelings for touma, if she doesn’t she can break up with him and (hopefully) apologize for not being able to love him back like she said at the beginning.
i don’t see why you’re making such a big fucking deal out of who she’s dating instead of worrying about KOU’S MENTAL STATE? THAT BOY COULD BE NEEDING ACTUAL MEDICAL HELP AND YOU ALL WANT HIM IN A RELATIONSHIP WHEN HE MIGHT NOT EVEN BE READY.

No, Murao is not a bitch or a bad friend for telling Kou and Kominato to back off.
She knows that Futaba still has feelings for Kou but also that Futaba wants to move on. It is ok if it breaks your heart or if you don’t like Touma guys, it is totally fine but see the situation in the general aspect. Futaba suffered a lot with the
stupidNarumi thing, she thought she had a chance with Kou, that there was something special and he throw it away just to be there for Narumi, his intention were good indeed but it was obviously going to have collateral damage in Futaba and
OF COURSE FUTABA WOULD WANT TO MOVE ON, WHO THE HELL WANTS TO BE MISERABLE ALL HER LIFE BECAUSE YOU THINK THE GUY YOU LIKE DOESN’T LIKE YOU BACK?!
She thinks Kou is dating Narumi, Kou never truly explained to her what is his deal with Narumi, How can she knows? She can’t read minds and she can’t guess Kou likes her after everything, she thought that once and look how it ended! Futaba wants to move on and do her best as Touma’s girlfriend, Murao and Yuuri know it and respect her desicion and this is why Murao doesn’t want anyone to get involded because it is obvious going to confuse Futaba and it is not fair at all, she wants to move on and everyone want to throw her back at Kou? That is poop. Kou has no right to get between in her relationship, he realized everything so damn late and he can’t expect her to wait forever. What he can do is win her back fo real, explain the whole thing with Narumi but no place her in stupid situations that put in danger her relationship.
If Futaba is truly not happy with Touma she will realize sooner or later but by herself, no one has to tell her.
It is Futaba who has to say “I want to be Kou” and no someone else
and come on we all know she eventually will
