It’s good to see that nice Kyoko still exists inside the persona of Natsu. Her biggest talent isn’t just her acting; it’s her ability to turn her acting on and off in a snap. It also counts as that “gimmick” that fans can expect to see show up time after time. Most series have a gimmick, such as spiral power in Gurren Lagann or Azuma’s Solar Hands in Yakitate!! Japan.
Chiori-bitch seems to have underlying trauma due to a past acting gig as a child that resulted in a fire accident. That still isn’t enough of a reason for me to start feeling sympathy for her. Just because they had a shitty turn of events doesn’t give an excuse for making others miserable too.
