So I took the opportunity to finish my reread of Kodocha, since I'd quit after book seven to read other things.
Now, I know I'm an unabashed Rei/Sana shipper and everything, but I don't think I'm biased when I say her relationship with Akito seems really unhealthy and codependent. It's not sweet at all.
And I do think it's funny that Asako just basically disappears for the rest of the series, but Rei has to keep reminding us, "Oh, she's just super busy with work so we don't see each other much, but we're still totes happy!" Yeah, dude, keep telling yourself that. You'll never be a priority to her. Plus she's probably cheating on you. Break-up imminent.
