Ah, nothing like a dose of Nakajima being badass to make one’s day. (Cold, calculating, and emotionally withdrawn, certainly, but still badass.) It’s also interesting to see Touya finally getting the development he needs to seem like an actual person, not an enigmatic supervillain. His breakdown might be sad if it weren’t so infinitely satisfying to see him losing control over people for once. My desire to keep up so I can discuss new chapters in the forums is beginning to war with my usual habit of hoarding story updates until I can marathon the volume in one glorious rush.November 9, 2014 at 2:53 pm #8283
Ha ha, I’m happy to have you during serialization, Olivia. <3 You're always posting in various threads of the Sparkler forum and it's wonderful.
In terms of importance to the series, Touya ranks right below Ayase and Jo, so it was finally time to give him his own extended perspective. He's such a horrible person that I don't expect people to sympathize with him, but eh. He's an abused teen like the other kids and has his own (awful) ways of coping, which I think is fun, because I like exploring things that are horrible! :D (In case you can't tell from this series and its perpetual misery.)
Nakajima's gonna take center stage these next few chapters, because she's piiiiiissed.November 14, 2014 at 6:52 pm #8388Olivia WilliamsMember

Well, now I have to stick around, don’t I? :p
I remember you mentioning before (I don’t precisely recall when) that Book 3 is going to be Touya’s story the same way Book 1 was Kiyoshi’s and Book 2 was Kadoyuki’s. Considering how much I loved the characters by the end of those, I’ll give a non-committal “hmm” to Touya. I don’t think I could ever forgive him, but I do want to learn why he’s become what he is.

Now that’s what I like to hear. :DFebruary 11, 2015 at 10:53 pm #12499ChrisGuest
Oh god, I ship Touya and Kado.
That’s so unhealthy. I swear I would never condone a relationship anything like that in real life, but I can’t help pitying Touya.
Is there even a way for a relationship with a past like that to be healthy? I don’t know.February 12, 2015 at 11:17 pm #12520
Hey, as long as the line between fiction and reality is nice and thick, and no one thinks I’m romanticizing that kind of abuse, ship whatever makes you happy. *lol* You’re not the first reader to be into those guys, dysfunction and all. There’s certainly…history there.
Now I’m wondering if you’ve read the Touya scene in Chapter 3, Part 1 yet. :)
