Don't call people faggots...it's not nice

But actually
I'm going to have to stand by Jigoro and his sweater accusations.
I can't stand sweater-vests and I hope Hisao feels bad about it, too.

I've got a track jacket in that same blue plaid. Just NOW, I am ashamed of that.

What's wrong with sweater-vests? I sort of liked it, it makes him look like he's a father from the 1950s.

Also, Jigoro wears a loud hawaiian T-shirt and a katana, he can't badmouth anyone's taste.

Because one wacky asshole character wasn't enough for Shizune's route.

Ah yes, that's exactly the look for a Japanese high school student. The 1950s sitcom father outfit.

Probably to liven up Shizune's route somewhat.

As for the sweater... It should have been another colour, but it's still better than that awful shirt Jigoro is wearing.

Most likely, but his character is to the point of absurdity.

He felt a bit like a racist Saxton Hale.

But... I like sweater vests...

They look good on Asians AND pretentious Brits (no hate, I is joking my Anglo friends. I like Brits).

I'm not British. So...

Why you hate sweater vests, internet and Jigoro?
The sky changes every day but it always stays the same. Humans don't have that luxury.

Haphazardly butchered together from the immortal words of Rin.

I think a Katana allows you to badmouth almost everything.

True. And he's very hostile. It's a sad thing, really. My first impression was: wow, dude looks cool. Big hair, lame shirt, muscles, katana... he gave of a bit of a Boisterous Bruiser vibe. Plenty of opportunities there to liven up the route in a positive way! I would've liked it if Hisao ditched Hideako and went on to drink beer and hunt bear with his future father-in-law. Alas, daddy turned out to be an asshole...

Now that I think of it, he kinda looks like an inversion of Jecht from Final Fantasy X. They look really similar, I think. The inversion is that Jecht started out as a jackass, but became more sympathetic as time went on, whereas Jigoro started out as nice and turned into a jackass in a matter of seconds.

Only if you're an anime. Or an actual samurai back in shogunate-era Japan. Walking around with a katana today just means everyone gets to badmouth you.

He's Japanese

This is a fact that nobody seems to enjoy talking about, but Japan is extremely racist.
Manual breathing activated!

Lilly=Emi>>>Hanako=Shizune=Rin=Misha

In terms of STORY, on the other hand - so far:
Lilly's>Emi's>>>>Rin's>>>>>>>>Shizune's>Hanako's

Complete: Hanako, Rin, Shizune, Emi, Lilly
What now? Now I cry over how beautiful the whole thing was.

Comic relief.

Because Shizune's route was kind of lacking in that department.
