Now my biggest existential dilemma here is that most of the couples that come to mind only end up being couples towards the very end of the series and you don’t really get to see them together as a couple. Examples would include Mikiya and Shiki form Kara no Kyoukai (空の境界), Edward and Winry from Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood (鋼の錬金術師 FULLMETAL ALCHEMIST) and an exception from the above would be Nagisa and Tomoya from Clannad (クラナド) (even if that anime didn’t strike a chord with me as much as it did with most people ^^”).
Still, ever since I’ve seen Hotarubi no mori e (蛍火の杜へ) I couldn’t help but love the relationship that forms between Hotaru and Gin and I think I’m gonna go with them for ‘today’s’ theme ^^.
Yes, part of the reason I really liked their story has to do with the tragic way it ends, but at the same time I couldn’t help but smile while watching the characters interact, get to know each other and gradually grow closer while at the same time being very aware of their circumstances. And Gin and Hotaru to choosing to keep seeing each other despite everything is something I admire them for ^^.
Ok, I’m stating to day-dream too much so I’ll leave it at that. As always, thanks for stopping by :).
