I'm in love with you, Hanako!

If a non-Hisao boy from Yamaku spoke these words to Hanako, but she didn't return the feelings and viewed him just as a friend, how would she react?

There's a lot more to consider here than just the words "I love you, Hanako".

If we took that at face value and called it an unexpected confession with Hanako having no previous knowledge on this guys feelings or knowing him that well. Then I'm pretty sure you would get a reenactment of the first Library scene. Shortly after she makes her escape she would probably suffer a lot of panic attacks and shutdown like she did in science class because the fact that she could have crushed this boy would play on her mind too much, which in turn would make her blame herself that he even confessed to her because she was not keeping her head down enough for people to not pay any attention to her.

TLDR: It's complicated. And in conclusion, A sudden confession without any obvious signs of premeditation is one of the worst things that Hanako could experience other than Witnessing a loved one dying.

She would run away, then hide in her room.

I don't think it would be as extreme as that, but otherwise, I agree.

Any normal person would be flustered, at the very least (with exceptions, of course).

This is Hanako to be fair.

Though rather than immediately shutdown after the situation, perhaps it would be over the course of a few days. But like my conclusion says it's a pretty problematic scenario for her and would be very high up in the Top 10 instigators of Hanoko breakdowns.

I don't see her shutting down unless the guy in question turns into a mopey twat over it. :lol: Otherwise, she'll just hide behind Lilly anytime he approaches.

Well, everything I've said above is from my gut feeling. However we still really don't know enough about Hanako from her Canon story to make accurate speculations regarding how she deals with these kinds of situations and what goes through her mind.

One thing I am quite sure on though is that it would slowly eat away at her every time she saw this guy.

I came in here expecting to defend her honor against some Hanabro who was taking the game a little too seriously...

As for the question,


Definately a "IGOTTAGODOSOMETHING!" moment. She'd probably go into hiding and try to keep a low profile just to avoid the person and a potentially embarassing situation and not wanting to hurt their feelings by turning them down.

Or maybe she'd ask Lilly to talk to them for her?

She'd probably think it was a prank, and that if she reciprocated, she'd be made fun of, I think.

Even if she were interested, if it were out of the blue.

Hmph. I was all ready to rant about how "run away and hide" was not an option, then I see everyone else (every single post!) said the same thing I was going to.

Nice job, boys. Take 'em away.

Except me apparently. :(

Run away and hide is absolutely an option. :x

My feelings on this have changed in the last few hours. I don't think any of the given options are enough to be honest.
