Journal of anime ramblings, fiction works and reflections
I’m a bit baffled at how annoying and stupid Erika is. And I exercised faith. I exercised so much faith that she wasn’t as pathetic as she was made to seem. But she went and did it. She went and just destroyed everything; even the meager bit of hope I had that she would retain some of her dignity (if she even had any). She just slaughtered everything.
I guess being a teengaer (female) makes you want the more romantic things in life, like a doting boyfriend and all the intimacy, gifts and happy memories that supposedly come with having one. But I think this facade has gone on long enough and Erika needs to face the fact that Sata is a lost cause, and he gives absolutely zero fucks about her feelings. He went as far as to switch into Mr. Perfection mode and confess false feelings just to tease her. How can she have the nerve to be upset and throw water in his face because he didn’t mean any of it? How is it even justified, especially when she knows Sata is a sadist and will push her to extremes just to please himself??
What makes everything so tragically ironic is that she’s a pathological liar. How is it that a liar cannot detect other lies? A liar falling for every lie spoon-fed to her? I can’t believe it. I cannot.
I don’t even know what I was expecting from this series. It seemed as if it would be different and would deliver on a twist to the usual shoujo stuff. But I was wrong. So wrong. My hope was misplaced. I felt so much pain watching this episode. And I will continue to feel pain because I’m going to see it through to the end. Even though my everything has been stomped to irreparable bits.
This writer must really hate her female lead to make her so pathetic.
On the other hand though, Sata isn’t free from blame. He’s being an absolute ass. He knows Erika is gullible. He knows how easily her feelings can be crushed and he went and did such a thing. Maybe because he knew he could easily win her back with a gift…
It is cute, I’ll give it that but Erika shouldn’t make things so easy for him. Is she that desperate for a romance? You know there are a lot of ways I could think of where she could possibly win Sata’s affections. She needs to respect the fact that Sata doesn’t want to be in a relationship right now, and stop pushing her selfish wants on the guy then expect him to feel bad when he makes fun of her. She needs to at least appreciate the fact that he is…nice enough to maintain all this pretend boyfriend/girlfriend shenanigans. Shouldn’t that be satisfying enough for her in some way? Because if he didn’t like her – or could tolerate her – then he wouldn’t be doing it.
Erika has so much to learn. I just want to slap her. I’m so frustrated.
Can you imagine her hysteria if he actually kissed her?
