You have a good point, but still. Lilly has this major decision in her life that could massively effect Hisao,and Lilly keeps this to herself. It would be better for the relationship if she shared this information, especially if she is indecisive. Lilly and Hisao could work things out intentionally, instead of the mess that happened. Considering that Lilly demanded that Hisao never leaver, when she knew she could not make that same promise back to Hisao ... What the hell, Lilly?Atario wrote:Absolutely not. She never knows what she's going to do till Hisao presumes she's leaving, which is her signal that he doesn't care that enough about her to ask her to stay. So she says "yeah, you're right, I'm going… I've always known I was going, yup". This despite just having told him she didn't let him know yet because she hadn't decided yet. She's indecisive, not a bitch.Liminaut wrote:When Lilly is confessing to Hisao in the field she makes Hisao promise that he will never leave, all the while she knows that she's going to be leaving him to go to Scotland. She knows this all throughout the arc, but she never tells Hisao until Akira forces things.
What you say makes the dickishness even more dickly. *Lilly* know how her name is supposed to be pronounced ... and every day she has to listen to her classmates, friends, even her lover get it wrong. It's not hopeless of course, but a lot of Japanese can't even hear the difference between L and R (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cJHT99lryaI)Lilly has two native languages.While we're on the subject of Lilly, what kind of total dick parents give their child a name that's not pronounceable in the child's native language?
No. That's just the closest Japanese can come to her actual name, which is Lilly, in English, in roman letters.Look at the wiki http://katawashoujo.wikia.com/wiki/Lilly. Lilly's name is pronounced "Riri".
And now I have this image of Lilly just losing at and going off on her mother: "My name is goddamn Riri! That's how they pronounce it in my home country! If you don't like it then why the hell did you name me that!"
Yes, I know, anger like that is massively out of character for Lilly -- which is why it would be such a terrifying spectacle if/when she does snap.
... and now I have this completely out of character image of Lilly as a Scottish punk with bright blue mohawk ...
