Hirunaka no Ryuusei || Shizume ♥
Once, you told me “you’re like a day time shooting star”, didn’t you?… It’s a pity that i’ve never seen a shooting star in a daytime, but… I feel like I’ve started to understand the meaning of it. because i’m sure that… You’re my daytime shooting star.
I always wondered what’s exactly the point of letting Shishio know that Mamura and Suzume weren’t actually dating if it’s going to become real eventually. Well, this chapter showed the purpose of it very clearly: we get to see once again how vulnerable and bewildered Shishio is right now. His reaction to Yuyuka’s words is even stronger than usual, very easy to read. I am happy it was Yuyuka who get to witness it of all characters.
Her thoughts in the beginning were after all something that even some fans still think about Shishio: "Such a thing happened and he’s so laid back about it, seriously!"… Because yes, right now Shishio is all about mental barriers and fake smiles, hiding his real painful feelings behind easy-going teacher mask. But when it comes to Suzume, he is once again completely unable to do it. It’s easy to see that he just simply cares too much, even after everything that happened. His love still defines his character more than anything, and that’s why scenes like this make me really happy: it’s sad, but Shishio’s feelings are still important!! Shishio matters!!
And, it’s also really significant that for once in a scene like this he actually interacts with another character, and that character who sees him losing control so completely is Yuyuka. I doubt she will actually do anything with this information, but… I don’t know, I feel quite hopeful? Maybe finally things will start to develop with Shishio, too??
(again, I don’t think it’s Shishio himself who can clear up the situation: he doesn’t have any right to do it anymore. It needs to be resolved other way)
sorry for always repeating myself ;_;
After this chapter my hope to see a shizume endgame became almost certainty. I mean, what could possible be the meaning in let us seeing his (shishio) reaction to the mazume news, and don’t forget shishio/mamura conversation about real feelings, when he (shishio) confessed that he loves suzume!
Sorry for my english, when i’m with my phone my english is even worse than when i write from my laptop.
