The first 3 episodes were really good, I kinda liked the end with Manabe and all but jesus christ how the fuck do you just forgive people like that. I would have rather seen moritani stay rivals with kotoura, would have made for a more interesting story than some person attacking highschool girls.
A woman in Rwanda, during the Tutsi slaughter had her family and unborn baby murdered in front of her and she was severely injured, she got her hand cut off trying to shield herself from a machete slash.
one of the assailants who broke into her home was a young man she used to go to school with, after the blood bath many Hutus turned themselves in to the authorities, and that young man was one of them. he even approached the woman and asked her forgiveness for what he had done, she forgave him, after thinking about it for a while.
Years later they were working together to construct homes for survivors of the massacre.
The ladys name is Mukarurinda, and the mans name is Ndayisaba.
If she can forgive him, Kotoura can forgive these bitches.
Only makes the point stronger that it is actually possible to forgive someone for doing something so awful to you, compared to it happening in a fictional work where a character only actually forgives another because ''that's what the writer wrote''
Kotoura also has the advantage of her ability, which should make it much easier to empathize with and understand them.
I did think the same as OP when I watched it. Although the fact that she did forgive them wasn't really the problem, but how easy it was.
Kotoura's thoughts about it weren't really explained. And she didn't even seem to struggle with it, her mother didn't even apologize. It just felt like "she's my mom so I love her no matter what - she's my daughter, so I don't need to aplogize and she has to forgive me anyway"
Maybe I just didn't pay enough attention, but I think it was just poorly written.
>"she's my mom so I love her no matter what - she's my daughter, so I don't need to aplogize and she has to forgive me anyway"
While I absolutely think the series is poorly written, I feel like that specifically is more of a culture thing. Family is a much bigger deal in Japan than in the west. It's better to be stuck with people you hate than have the public perception of a broken family.
Yeah I too thought it may be a japanese thing, though not because of the family reputation, but the culture of maintaining harmony and not causing trouble in general.
other than that, I don't remember him doing anything to her. He took care of her after her mother abandoned her,buying her expensive shit might be a way for him to express love and care and also didn't give Manabe a hard time for being a "competition", might've even encouraged it, I don't quite remember
So maybe we're supposed to see Koutura as the ultimate japanese. She just wants to maintain harmony, no matter how shitty people treat her.
still makes me sad
