My thoughts while reading Ch 51
I know there is a reason for them discussing what she wants to do with her future career but I am struggling to connect the dots. It almost has me wondering if this is going to be the point in time she goes her own way to chase her dreams when she figures it out but I can’t picture her leaving Yato and Yukine behind.
I never once considered that Yato could make Hiyori a shinki. How that thought never crossed my mind I’ll never know.
Koto says that’s what Hiyori wants but I disagree. I could be wrong but I think deep down that’s the farthest from what she wants. Especially right now as young as she is. She may be confused about what her future plans are, but she wants to live. See her family and continue to make memories with the ones she cares about. She just has her blinders on right now.
See she has the blinders on. She afraid of what is going to happen if she goes back. I mean maybe she’s not even thinking at all, but Hiyori isn’t one to fall into the darkness. Her personality is one of drive and confidence. I can’t picture her succumbing to despair. I just can’t. Even after what’s happened and will happen in the future.
I know this is why Tenjin was trying so hard to get Yato to cut his ties with her. He wanted to avoid this situation and you can’t tell me otherwise. It’s too easy to just slip over to the other side. To want to be with Yato and choose that without a second thought. Even as young as she is and maybe this is contradictory to what I said earlier, but it’s easy to convince yourself you can have both. She can be with Yato and have her family and friends and live happily ever after. Tie it up with a bow and make it so.
My thoughts on this chapter are kind of scrambled because there is a lot to process with this. There is a lot going on mentally you have to piece together and figure out.
The fact that he said “I can’t let you come to this side yet” speaks so many volumes.
I knew she just needed to be reminded of what she would be missing out on.
Yeah that’s right Hiyori. Make it known you’re unfazed by what happened. You can rebuild. Restart. It’s not over yet and he certainly hasn’t won. The look on his face says it all.
I’ve read Vol 14 I’ll be posting my thoughts on that sometime soon. I will say though that I understand Yato’s fears now and I too don’t want Yukine anywhere near Koto. He’s gonna mess with my boy like he did with Tsugaha and I don’t like it. I know it’s gonna happen and I’m not ready 😭😭
