Is it wrong that I relate to Fujino?
Do I care? Nope. Perfectly flawed child is perfect.
Writing observation hour requests to high school teachers all politely and stuff and being appreciative and using flowery, mature language. But really all it boils down to is
"I would get your lunch for you, Master. Please sign my form, Master."
The kid I am sitting next to in class smells like cheap booze and failure.
We have yet to reach the end of the first week of classes. Why even squander the money if you are just going to come in hungover?
Were I to write memoirs about my college experience it would be titled
Caffeine and Tears: A Tale of Poor Time Management
My friend’s autocorrect for RPers is “ripples”.
Ripples. Which I will now be using as a synonym for Roleplayers.
I have posted the crazy long Asagami post. My only regret was not being able to use these screenshots:
"There are rumors about you being connected to some murders…"
"Nuh uh. Nope. No idea what you’re talking about."
Fujino, iconic dodger of questions.
After yet another (12th?) watch of Extra Chorus, and recently the whole of Kara no Kyoukai, I was once again left thinking on my very favorite character, Fujino. Normally, my conclusions about her are very positive — and my conclusions are still very positive, it is simply that I often conveniently overlook the darker side to Fujino. “It is the good person that results in the end that is important,” I would say to justify her sins. Don’t misunderstand, I think that Fujino — at the end of the day — is actually an exceptionally kind and brave person. But that just means that at the beginning of the day, she is a killer.
Fujino is one of those characters who actually pulls off the “dark hero” archetype very well. This might be because we do not see her much, but I maintain that the realism in the writing comes from the fact that Fujino could just as easily been a villain. She manages to find herself on a better path only because of a combination of events that were almost entirely coincidence or based on the whims of others. Not that a seed of goodness did not always exist in her, because it did, it is just that the potential for cruelty was planted right next to it much like Shiki’s dual capacity for the same.
