Geez. There's so much hate and hostility directed towards Takayuki. When I was watching it, I felt sorry for him rather than angry at him. Sure, he made stupid mistakes, but in that kind of situation it's hard to know what to do. With what everyone was going through and everyone demanding him to do what they wanted him to do... the guy had to be under a lot of pressure. A lot of people sympathize with Mitsuki and I know she had a rough time, but I thought she was manipulative and conniving most of the time.
And of course, you have to feel sorry for Haruka as well, but I think by the end she turned out to be the strongest character of the entire show. Too bad she didn't get much screentime, but considering her circumstances that's not surprising.
I think Takayuki made the right choice in the end.
When I was watching it, I was debating whether or not to continue throughout the entire second episode... but the end of episode 2 hits you like a ton of bricks, and after that I was hooked. There's just something about extremely painful love triangles that grab your attention... especially if you're masochistic like I am. Kimi
is definitely one of the more serious and angsty dramas I've seen in a long time, so much so that I thought the brief moments of comedy were horribly out-of-place. I was really surprised it was from an H-game, actually... although I seem to remember that there are scenes parents might not want their young children to see.
