Agreed. If Misha doesn't end up dying, I can certainly see it becoming a "two's company, three's a crowd" situation.The obvious one is the conflict that could arise is between Misha and Shizune. Misha, for example, might feel like you're is trying to replace her in Shizune's life by getting closer to her, and you would have to assure her that it isn't the case, or something like that.
Assuming we have a Misha route avaliable, it'd probably be a matter of Shizune becoming rather jealous and/or scared of losing her 'voice' in the world, so to speak.
I kind of feel the same about the Hanako/Lilly paths. Lilly seems to lead quite a stressful life and as much as she enjoys Hanako's company, I can see Hanako being a bit of a burden on her. Hanako has become very dependant on Lilly to the point where she's really the only person she'll interact with and Lilly can't be there all the time due to family and school commitments.But if you go for Lilly, I guess you'll see Hanako as sort of your sister or daughter to take care off together with Lilly, so Lilly-path should be some sort of family end, makes sense, since there's already that family-feeling in the Lilly-part (see the scene with her sister).
Hanako path on the other hand will make her probably less dependent on Lilly.
I think if you go down Hanako's path, Lilly will be glad Hanako's coming out of her shell and it'll also lift one of the many burdens off of her back. If you go down Lilly's path, Hanako will appreciate just having a friend in the same class as well as someone to hang out with when Lilly's just too busy to meet with either of you. That's not to say there can't be any conflict in their paths as wires can be crossed etc but in the end, I think both of them will be happy that their friend found happiness and also be quite content at gaining a new friend in the MC as well.
Yeah, and they also seem to be interested in the polar opposites of guys anyway: Emi only becomes interested in Hisao when he takes an active role in keeping fit whereas Rin seems to prefer Hisao when he's way more layed back. Can't really see them fighting over him.I can't really see any kind of conflict like those on either the Emi or Rin route. The two of them are friends, but not really close in the same way as Misha/Shizune and Hanako/Lilly.
