What my Kaito/Mai ship is doing to me right now.

DDDDDDDDDD:

21 9 / 2014

Is it wrong (or just plain weird) that I like Kaito better than Kouta?

I’ll probably come back and revise this post, but at the moment, I’m too busy trying to process everything.

EDIT: So, against my better judgement, I watch Episode 46. Again.

And my sister comes in the room, and looks at me like

And I’m like

Just—no. I’ll get around writing my thoughts out about this episode, but please—

LEAVE ME ALONE SO I CAN CRY OVER MY SHIP.

Written in the time I was listening to Yoo Min Soo and Shin Yong Jae’s rendition of “Fate,” the theme song for the Korean movie The King and the Clown.

The title is misleading. I can’t think of anything else at the moment.

WARNING: Major character death. And the feels. Angsty feels. And misleading titles.

(Someone explain to me why I do this when I ship Kaito/Mai so hard.)

 Take Our Hearts and Go

            When the smoke clears, all the silent on the battlefield.

            Mai catches her breath when she realizes who is left standing….and who is lying on the ground.

            Kaito.

            …..The world comes to a stop.

            Before anything registers, before she sees the look of shock on Kouta’s face, she is already hurrying, running, kneeling down beside Kaito’s prone body. She reaches out with shaking fingers, touches his cold cheek—

            “Kaito?” she whispers.

            A liquid breath shudders from damaged lungs, and his eyes open a crack, foggy eyes somehow finding hers. They blink once, twice, slowly, and his lips part to form the sound of her name—

            (The world feels so small—)

            She manages to smile, hard as it is, because her muscles seem frozen in place. “Just wait, I’ll get help—” She stops when she feels his touch on his arm—Why does he feel so cold?

            He closes his eyes, and jerks his head in refusal. “Too…late,” he breathes. His Adam’s apple bobs as he takes an excruciating breath, and—

            “Good…bye…Mai.”

            It wasn’t supposed to be like this.

fuckyeahcontroversialcouples:

Pairing: Kouga Saejima x Kaoru Mitsuki

Series/Fandom: GARO

Why They’re Hated: Kouga is too emotionally distant. Kaoru is “weak” and a “damsel in distress.” Kouga doesn’t tell Kaoru that she’s going to die (in series one) or that [SPOILER]he is going to die[SPOILER] in series two. Kouga doesn’t enjoy any of the things Kaoru likes to do. Kaoru has the nerve to think that she is Kouga’s equal and her artwork is as important as his saving the world.

OH WE ARE SO NOT GOING THERE.

Long live my GARO OTP!

A fluffy Kaito/Mai drabble. I’m in a good mood these days. (The Nutella jar is strangely empty today. Shhhh….That’s supposed to be a secret.)

Disclaimer: I do not own Kamen Rider Gaim.

Domesticity

            The first days of cohabitation were…well…awkward. Both were not used to bumping into each other in the small kitchen, or to suddenly run into each other in the middle of the hallway and having to squeeze past each other, Mai stammering out her apologies and Kaito mumbling what sounded like one, but Mai knows better than to wonder.

            Well, it was awkward until one night Mai comes out of her bedroom to get a drink of water to find Kaito in the kitchen, dressed in pajamas printed with yellow bananas and monkeys while blearily rummaging around the cupboards for a midnight snack.

            Much to Kaito’s dismay, Mai can’t quite stop from bursting out in laughter whenever they brush gazes for days after that one incident.

Day 15 – Least Favorite Secondary Rider

            Kusaka Masato from Kamen Rider 555—nope, been there, done that.

            Since he’s out of the running—see Day 2, Least Favorite Rider—I’ll have to think up of a different answer for this prompt.

            Hrm…..

            Well…..

            Kaito Daiki from Kamen Rider Decade.

            Why did I pick him as Least Favorite Secondary Rider? Sigh….I don’t know if he’s sincere anytime he regards Tsukasa and co. as anything other than rivals/enemies. Did I feel all the feels when I saw the episodes centered on him? Yes….but that didn’t make me any less annoyed at him—especially when he steals the Ika Origami from Genta in the Kamen Rider-Sentai crossover episode.

OK, I can deal. I can so deal with this.

……Actually no. I’m not buying the Daigo/Amy storyline. Nope nope nope. My Ucchii/Amy ship is sooooo not buying this.

ASDKJFSHDLFLSDJKFH.

I mean, there were so many hints of Amy/others that it feels too forced, as if the writers felt obligated to fulfill the Red/Pink trope that they just sandwiched Daigo and Amy together.

But…but….Ucchii/Amy. They were so. DARN. CUTE. TOGETHER. Why???!!!!!!

Kyoryuger as a series? I mean, it was interesting, given the sheer number of Kyoryugers there were, including the Spirit Rangers. I think that I was let down that Kyoryuger didn’t feel like a Sentai series in that it seemed to me that the focus of the series was on Daigo; it also seemed to me that the Kyoryugers were there for only battle support. 

(Honestly, I didn’t see Kyoryuger in one continuous flow, like I do other series. I kind of got bored around…what…Episode 23?, and then dropped it for Go-Busters, picked it up again, but dropped it about five episodes before the finale, and finally sat down to finish the series.)

Overall? I mean, the series was fun, light-hearted for the most part, but certainly a series that made a less impression on me than, say the Go-Busters, which got heat for not being as interesting as other series. It’s not a series that I would go back and re-watch, however.

(OK, I would, if only for Ucchii/Amy moments.)

Day 14 – Favorite Secondary Rider

            Because Kamen Rider Meteor takes the spot of favorite Rider, I have named Kamen Rider Baron as my favorite secondary Rider.

            Almost immediately, what caught my eye was Kaito. (I have an incurable affinity for brooding, aloof types in flowing capes.) It was clear—to me, anyway—that he wouldn’t be just a villain in the long run, and I ship him with Mai on an unhealthy basis.

 imageimage

imageimage

 

            It turned out that I was right, in a fashion. Kaito evolved from a villain to a anti-heroic jerkwad of a Rider (well, maybe he’s back being a villain right now), and my heart sings—OK, I’m incessantly biting my nails in light of recent episodes (not to mention the screaming on top of my lungs because of Episode 45).

(Did I mention that I enjoy his cheekbones a little too much?)

Day 13 – Least Favorite Monsters

            Least Favorite Monsters? Let’s see….Worms from Kamen Rider Kabuto.

Kaito Kumon, Ressha Sentai Toqger vs. Kamen Rider Gaim Spring Special


When Kouta mentions that Mai is with the Toqgers—therefore not with the Gaim group—even Kaito, who is leaving, pauses for a moment.


(He stills worries about her, despite him refusing to get himself involved.)

OK, now that I’ve had time to scream my lungs out and process this episode—I swear, Kamen Rider Gaim is going to be the death of me—I think that I can rationally sit down and analyze this episode.

(Or not.)

A lot of people on the ‘net are condemning Kaito as a power-mongering Overlord who’s lost all his sense in his quest for power. Well, yes, he’s seeking power, but since when was he not doing so? Some people have expressed surprise, and I’m sitting here, wondering why. Kaito’s been spouting the-strong-will-survive nonsense throughout the series; this is not a new idea—at least, to me.

(Also, isn’t Kaito not completely gone because he didn’t totes kill Zack, just knocked him out? I didn’t see anything about Zack being a casualty on the official site.)

As for him and Mai….yes, he wants the Forbidden Fruit. He does, because he knows what he can obtain from eating it—all-consuming power. If it means him using Mai…it’s not going to stop him, I think.

But on the other hand…isn’t the dream sequence a telling hint of Kaito wants more from Mai than just the Forbidden Fruit (tantalizing as it is)? I felt the backdrop of the former Takatsukasa shrine symbolizes more than just a place where Kaito can communicate with Mai. The Takatsukasa Shrine is their first meeting place, a reminder of happier times for Kaito before thoughts of taking vengeance against the Corporation and obtaining power were instilled in Kaito.

"I won’t choose. I don’t see a difference."

(Or this could be my attempt in reasoning away Kaito being a villain because of my Kaito/Mai ship.)
