>every other route has an end where MC and them gets together except for CHILDHOOD FRIEND
the fuck is wrong with japan and their hate for childhood friends
There's plenty of shows where the childhood friend wins.
Now, a show where the genki/ara girl wins over the bitch Tsundere? That's as rare as winning the lottery.
Except for the times they do. People buying into that stupid meme made this all the sweeter because they doubted this end without good reason.
The reason 'childhood friend doesn't win' is a thing is because the childhood friend love interest is such a common character. Of course they can't win all the time; that would be boring, as much as I like them.
To be fair, it made her ending the most satisfying.
Not that guy. But probably because its the only one of the stories which broke from the horrible formula. Pretty telling when a bad ending people don't expect is more interesting than the good ending people expect.
