Kimi to Boku. – 10
「on your mark」
With the end of the fall semester comes the beginning of a budding unrequited love! As I’ve said many times before, Chizuru’s flamboyant attitude may be his biggest pitfall. While it may add a bit of humor and variety to all the little pranks he pulls off with Yuuki, I’m pretty sure that it may be undermining any of his attempts at trying to get closer with
When I first said that Chizuru might have feelings for Masaki, it was almost an afterthought, just something that I thought would be interesting to think about. But after watching his jealously for the relationship Shun and Masaki share grow to the point that he nearly admits how he feels about her, it excites me to think about what implications this could bring in the future. As unlikely as it might be, I for one would love to see the whole group dynamic get thrown for a loop should Chizuru choose to follow his hormonal instincts.
And should that group dynamic get thrown for a loop, I bet that it’d be the perfect outlet for side characters like Shizuna and Hisako to get more screen time! Honestly, Kimi to Boku has had some of the most interesting side characters this season and I would not mind getting to see more of them. From Kaname’s overly loving mom Youko; to the socially awkward, Yuuki idolizing Ryunosuke; there’s quite a range of personalities to pick from.
That said, I could be completely wrong and we may not even see them for the remainder of the season. But I still have faith that there’s a lot good material left for this show to cover. Judging from the previews for next week’s episode, I honestly have no idea what’ll happen. But is it me, or could that last person in the preview be Yuuki and Yuuta’s mom?
