I bought volumes 1 and 2 at Barnes & Noble. It's surprising to see someone actually like Sayaka considering everyone in the fandom hates her. They hate her for trying to frame Makoto but praise Kirigiri despite the fact that she did the same thing. I don't hate them though(like them both actually). It's clear they both regretted doing it(Kyoko following Makoto into the trash shoot and bringing him food and water, Sayaka writing Leon's name on the wall). I wished Yasuhiro died tbh. He served no purpose except for hinting at the bad ending, and was just a joke character. I was indifferent to him at first but after he attacked Sakura for no reason I wanted him to go. On an unrelated note, I find it weird when people give Byakuya flack for being a dick to Toko. Granted he's a dick to everyone, but dude's got a legitimate reason to hate her. Imagine being locked in with someone who can turn into a serial killer, that kills any boy she likes, from a sneeze. Ignoring the serial killer part, her real self stalks him and makes lewd and disgusting comments about him when he makes it clear he's not interested and wants nothing to do with her. Seriously do that to someone who doesn't like you in real life and you'll probably get the cops called on you. I also miss Celeste. I feel like the game did her so dirty and made her way too easy. She was the Queen of Liars yet they made her lies so obvious. She was one of the few smart characters who actually forms her own opinion on something.
I reread volume one and a bit after Leon was found guilty and was trying to say it was self defense he says something like "You think I shoulda just let the crazy bitch kill me instead?" That sounds like the words of someone who wants to get away from/get rid of something as soon as possible. Given that the thought of him wanting to go after Sayaka to calm her down doesn't make much sense. As for his execution, it's actually one of my favorites. I agree though that v3's executions are way more brutal, but for the first game I'd say 1,000 blows was pretty painful. I might be a bit biased here cause aside from After School Lesson I found the other executions in v1 to be more cartoony.
Leon did not kill Sayaka out of self defense. When Sayaka attacked him with the knife and Leon used the sword to block it, that was self defense. However Sayaka ran to the bathroom after she dropped the knife then Leon made the decision to break in and kill her. He could have ran away after Sayaka ran into the bathroom, he'd have plenty of time. The game even states that it was no longer self defense after he went out of his way to get the door open. People say in the manga version he tried to open the bathroom to talk to her, but the game is the main/original version so I go by that.
I miss when Boomerang actually showed old cartoons that no longer air like: Courage, Johnny Bravo, PPG, Teen Titans, Chowder, KND, Flapjack, etc. Now they only air the same episodes of Looney Tunes and Tom and Jerry, along with their garbage reboots.
Tumblr is the worst place to look for ship content. 90% of ship content is just stupid fanfic/imagine your otp memes(also mixed in with a bunch of ships you don't care about) and only 10% is actual content like art and fics.
