|Yes hello, this is Egypt|
Speaking of Yamato, I'd like to address an issue which has been brought up numerous times throughout the past episodes of Sukitte Ii na yo, one that questions Yamato's decency as a main male lead. For those who are familiar with shoujo, it shouldn't come as a surprise that aggressively approaching a girl and leading her on in a physical manner (cuddling, hugging, holding hands, kissing, etc.) is present in this show. After all, this show is a by-the-book shoujo genre show after all
The introduction of Aiko may not have been a positive one, but it did shed some light on one of the main topics this show addresses. Too often those in a relationship will try to be someone who they aren't, for the sake of their romantic partner. While there's nothing wrong with looking your best for someone you love, going to such lengths such as Aiko, in order to satisfy her boyfriend at the time, is simply wrong, especially if it causes bodily harm. I can't stress enough how important it is for romantic partners to have mutual feelings for each other, or else a relationship really fails to work out. Seeing as Aiko has already developed a strong dislike of Mei, criticizing her for her lack of effort in maintaining her relationship with Yamato, hopefully Mei will be able to come through to her, offering her some much-needed support to calm her nerves which have been scarred by her also rather unfortunate past.
Every week I'm expecting this show to go downhill for some reason, I really don't have much expectations for Sukitte Ii na yo, but every week I'm pleasantly surprised with how much deeper the story is delving, and it's really becoming quite an engaging show.
