Lately I’ve been talking about Nitori’s character with a bunch of people again, and I figured I’d write down some of my thoughts on the reason why his character tends to split the fandom down the middle. Given that he’s not much more than a side character with very limited character development, the fact that he is capable of rousing such extreme emotion on both sides of the spectrum is nothing short of fascinating, so I’ll try to objectively tackle both (as well as offer my subjective view, because why the hell not).
DISCLAIMER: I don’t hate Nitori, though admittedly I’ve never been his biggest fan (for reasons which I shall disclose below). My best friend, however, loves Nitori more than any other character on the show, so safe to say I have no agenda in trying to paint Nitori as the antichrist either. I’m not trying to convert anyone onto either side, but perhaps offer some food for thought on why some of the extremes are capable of hurting people on both sides of the spectrum.
Haters gonna rotate etc. I guess Nitori can also make some people uncomfortable because he has a lot of negative traits that might hit a bit too close to home. It’s not very fun to be reminded of all the times when we were trying too hard or were turned down by people we adore or couldn’t give someone what they really needed. Every now and then even I have to cringe at the stuff Nitori does, even if I really like him. And in my case, liking him does not equal condoning every single thing he does or says.
Idk I guess in a way it’s also a matter of being able to forgive yourself (or other people) for all the stupid shit you’ve managed to pull over the years. Because even if I see some of my own failures when I look at that gray-haired dork, I also see all that potential that was mentioned in the original post.
That being said tho, I’m super confused over what KyoAni is trying to do with Nitori’s character. He was already underdeveloped in the actual series, and his audio drama and FrFr! appearances have made him even more into a caricature. But here’s hoping that he’ll eventually interact more with
NAGISA other characters than Rin and become a strong independent shota. (I know I’m also setting myself up for disappointment if there will never be any kind of development for his character, but that’s a story for another time.)
(I also have a theory that in the end it all boils down to Nitori’s hair. If you like it, you like him, and if you don’t, you can’t stand him. Simple as that.)@3 days ago with 193 notes
