8: Haruna dere-dereing at Akimaru about Abe
Akimaru, this is your first mistake. DON’T BE RATIONAL AND REASONABLE IT JUST PISSES HARUNA OFF.
(not that Akimaru’s carrying this minor little tidbit around with him like a fucking boulder chained to his neck, or anything)
(continued disbelief and Not Cariing from Akimaru)
(and there was no secretly crying into pillows about it every night on Akimaru’s part AT ALL)
But wait this was supposed to be about HARUNA’S cuteness moments, not Akimaru’s.
Okay, fine!! Here comes this scene’s major Haruna tsundere moment:
“people”= only Haruna lol
I almost expected him to blurt out “…b-because” and then “shut up!” and then finally “AKIMARU YOU IDIOT!!!” I mean what the hell, Haruna, LOOK AT YOU. But no, instead he says:
“I don’t know.”
YEP. IT’S ALL ONE BIG GODDAMN MYSTERY. HE DOESN’T KNOW, OKAY? NO ONE KNOWS. NO ONE COULD EVER KNOW WHAT ABE IS GOING ON ABOUT RE: HARUNA ALL THE TIME, IT IS ALL TOTALLY UNFOUNDED BAFFLING NONSENSE.
(the greatest is later finding out that Haruna actually honestly DIDN’T know why Abe was calling him the worst!!! When I first saw this scene I thought Haruna was being disingenuous at best BUT LATER I DISCOVERED THE TRUTH and the truth was EVEN BETTER THAN I COULD HAVE EVER DREAMED)
The scene then proceeds to Akimaru’s internal monologuing about how much Haruna has changed and how much he has Abe to thank for that, but who cares about that, the best part of what follows is when Akimaru shivers and Haruna wonders if Akimaru needs to pee… but that is outside the scope of this particular Haruna cuteness moment so no screencaps for now!
(tomorrow: item number seven. HINT: it comes from the Haruna backstory extra episode but does NOT involve Kaguyan!)
