Whilst I agree it can get a bit creepy, I think "repulsive" is a bit harsh. She finds Hana cute in a "aww, isn't she cute" way rather than a "she's cute, woof" way. It just that as a socially inept person she just shows it in an awkward way, she probably less mature than the girls which is where a lot of the comedy comes from.repulsive main character... unwholesome interest in younger girls
I guess this is an agree to disagree thing, but personally I do find relationships like this awkward and I don't have step-siblings or fancy my blood brother. It's not about them being legal or not really, it's just that it is something some people take an issue with for a variety of reasons.Oh and on a different matter step-siblings are perfectly legal as there are no blood ties. The only way you would find Domestic Girlfriend awkward is if you were having the same feelings in real life! Because I guess it would be a bit awkward in real life, especially in a love triangle as in the show.
I guess finding yourself in the situation of fancying a step-sibling is a lot more likely nowadays, especially in the West, with the divorce rates.
As I said in the article, it’s a soap opera. It’s 100% meant to be super ridiculous and not taken seriously.It sounds so trashy and reinforces those stereotypes of Japanese media. As what other culture has a show about a love triangle with Family even if it’s via marriage.
Shows about a love triangle with family might be rare, but shows featuring it are a bit more common. I also doubt it's fully up to culture, but more a simple result of making a show with forbidden love + extra drama. Doesn't make it any good, though, and I'm pretty sure it isn't a show for me without even watching it.As what other culture has a show about a love triangle with Family even if it’s via marriage.
You don't have to watch it to be fair. If you don't like it just don't watch it, but I'm just saying that there are valid reasons that it's so stupid. It's made to be that way and those who are enjoying it (like I am) are having fun with it. It's not for everyone and that's for sure, but rather than ragging on it just leave it for those who are do like this kind of thing.One is a teacher as well. It sounds awful. And soap operas are awful too... it’s getting a mixed response which I would have assumed anyway
