Shame on you.
Rubbing salt in my wounds
Well, I do celebrate birthday week
instead of birth date, so I guess I can still make up for it.
Since many people seem to treat Shizune as a jerk, on her birthday week
I want to defend for her in my own words, and showing my love of her.
Shizune has a lot of positives. She has great potential, and she looks gorgeous too. Her main issue is that, maybe due to being deaf and being unable to communicate with her family, she doesn't know how to interact with people properly. In other words, she lacks interpersonal skills. She admits this in the game too. While lacking interpersonal skills really hurts, having a boyfriend can easily change things around. Love is a powerful force.
She reminded me about my past self. When I was in high school, I also lacked interpersonal skills. I was harsh to others, and I pushed people away. I was also very serious in matters, and pushed myself really hard. However, I fell in love with somebody, and since then I changed dramatically, patching up my communication skills significantly, and most of my problems were solved. Therefore, I believe that with her boyfriend around, given time her potentials will shine. This is the reason I love her so much. Her prospects are spectacular.
Why Shizune is a great girl
1. Smart, competitive
No need to explain. Dominates in Risk. Beats Hanako in chess. Pushes herself as hard as she could.
2. Kind and caring
She may look selfish, but she is actually a kind girl. She just doesn't know how to deal with people properly. Here are some examples.
- "I'm angry that I screwed things up enough for it to get this out of hand. All I wanted was to... Make people happy, I think." <Grand Strategy>
- She prepared food and drink multiple times to her fellow members.
- Helped Hanako when she had a panic attack, trying to consolate her by rubbing her shoulder. <Falling>
- Wants to be a philanthropist
She knows her problems, and is trying to adjust herself as much as possible. This is important.
Never cries. Great determination. Never gives up. Not much to explain.
Also no need to explain, but quite important.
Shizune's future prospects
1. Love relationship
Misha goes overseas, so her only real friend is her boyfriend. Considering how smart and analytical she is, and that she wants to study business (which likely requires a lot of communication), she should realize that she probably needs her boyfriend as interpreter. And since Student Council is over, she should be able to spend more time with her boyfriend, making up for the loss time. Seeing how they communicate, I really think they make a great pair, as long as that idiot boy gets a bit more active showing love to his girlfriend (That one right before graduation was, in my opinion, quite a lame effort.). If both of them learn how to be a better boy/girlfriend, they should not have many problems. If anything goes wrong, Misha can help, even from overseas.
Being smart and competitive, and with her family relationships, she has great potential in her career. Her strong EQ helps her. She can be a businesswoman or a manager. As long as her boyfriend is willing to sacrifice a bit for her ambitions, they should find little problems with their living. They can even strive for better living standards.
Out of all the girls, her future prospects is, in my opinion, the best. The other girls are no match. Lilly can come close to rival her, that's why Lilly is second best for me. Emi is too stubborn, and her grades are bad. Hanako is too fragile and her EQ is weak. Misha is ok but not spectacular. Rin I have no opinion. Because of all these, I have no hesitation choosing Shizune as my best KS girl.
