Based on the recent developments in the manga I would have to say that I ship Haruhiko. Now way back when chapter 20 was posted, I wouldn't have said the same thing however, I now believe that Akihiko is a good match for Haruki and I believe that he genuinely loves him.
Ritsufuyu is a good ship and I think it's really healthy and pure. I also think Ritsuka will really be able to draw out more of Mafuyu's emotion and help him get over the situation with Yuki(with time I think he'll be okay.)
Akigetsu. *sigh* They are a couple that only look good together. They are both very attractive males and people who like gay couples -like myself- would die to see them together, however... that's about it. The whole reason they broke up in the first place was because Ugetsu said that they were dragging eachother down, so to ship something like that -as a manga reader- I find to be very irresponsible. They just aren't really compatible, and quite frankly their relationship is toxic.
Yufuyu! First of all I love saying that ship name :) Anyhow, I don't know too much about about the ship so there isn't... a lot to ship per se, however I am excited to read the entire backstory between Yuki and Mafuyu (here's hoping they make a chapter diving deeper into their backstory) and why Yuki killed himself although, I do love their friendship and they are a cute couple.
And Hiiryagi. Again, I don't know too much about them and their relationship so I don't have a lot to ship, but from what I have been able to see I think they are close friends and the ship could absolutely work.
Overall, agree! Akihiko is taking a liking to Haruki but evidently Akihiko would never make the first move. Just as good perhaps since he is larger physically he may feel he was coming across as some kind of player rather than someone who values and cares for those around him. Evident with RItsuka as well, Akihiko brings out the best in those around him in terms of them being his friends, but if for example Haruki liked Akihiko then he is a decent enough guy to wait for when they are comfortable to approach so to speak, which just makes Akihiko all the better as a person!
Would disagree with Ugetsu and Akihiko being not too good for one another. They are on both a different wavelength but work well together. I think they are both comfortable that they may be looking at other people, but they still have each others backs and know they can depend on one another. It is a work in progress for Ugetsu and he is working on it leaving behind a competitive maybe arrogant vibe in favour of like visiting Akihiko at his first live band to support him like. Also love how the manga shows their time together, they are both contently happy and that is where they are an ideal match for each other. The thing is if Akihiko came to love Haruki and vice versa not the end for Ugetsu, Akihiko would come to be there for him as well.
With Yuki and Mafuyu it wasn't a fling or anything, we have that Mafuyu did love him... yet if Mafuyu was the one who passed away truly doubt he would want to see Yuki deeply upset over the loss. So with Mafuyu's happiness at stake, if Ritsuka could fill that gigantic void everyone would be happy. Mafuyu latching onto Ritsuka and forming an attachment because he helped him with fixing his guitar was a forming moment. Ritsuka also cares about him, as his classmates are very much aware of. Like Akihiko observed, Mafuyu is also really good for Ritsuka.
Liking them all together is good, if only because they all deserve to be happy and they do find that in one another.
@S3r0-Ph1i Now that I think about it you are right about Akihiko and Ugetsu. Although they aren't in a romantic relationship any more I do find it sweet that even though they are ex-lovers, they are able to talk to eachother about things that are happening in their lives and are really supportive of eachother in their musical careers and as well as other things that happen in their day to day lives.
Oh sweet, the @ link created a handy notification, how helpful!
Yes, Ugetsu knows what he wants, and yet Akihiko seems to be an indispensable part of what Ugetsu needs to feel complete perhaps.
And you're right, think relationship wise, basing their activities around one another could be a good comparison; the are both foremost to one another.
Also good for supporting their musical talents, support is paramount in any relationship. Besides you don't care for someone if you're not saying things like they are; sorry did I wake you, no welcome home like ?
Yet like the poll suggestions if people prefer Akihiko and Haruki, that's fine, Ugetsu isn't bothered by Akihiko seeing Yayoi, he is comfortable where his position is in Akihiko's life. If anything simply more friends to make, works very well as their playing in bands show anyway!
@S3r0-Ph1i Again, you're right, however I feel like the reason Akihiko feels like a part that Ugetsu need to feel complete is because they're still in a sexual relationship (as of like chapter... um I can't remember the exact chapter but the chapters before chapter 28) and that's just creating more emotional ties and bonds that are keeping them from have successful romantic relationships with other people (Especially considering Akihiko was still in love with Ugetsu after their breakup.)
Akihiko, like Mafuyu, had a moment where he just knew he needed someone. In Akihiko's case what he has had together with Ugetsu so far, that it develops further in the story makes it all the better!
Idk abt u but I ship
Yuki x Ugetsu :)
An interesting match!
I haven't had a new OTP in months, but Ritsufuyu got me. Please say they don't break up in the manga. Please. (But I would like to know if they do :( )
That's a you'll have to read the manga and see area!
