I've always hurt other people, so that I myself don't get hurt

( can skip this introductory part )

Hello everyone, I'm blogging after a lot of time, but here's one today. I've always left character reviews for favorites, or now called ' wiki entries '. But I thought why not make a blog on one today, rather than the latter. So I've spiced up this blog, and tried to make it as appealing as possible, hope I didn't fail in doing so

Spoilers? Yes.

An Antogonistic Introduction

━━━━━━━━━━

━━━━━━━━━━

Aki Adagaki is a beautiful young woman with striking features and unparalleled beauty. At first glance, when I knew not even about the anime or manga, and only briefly read the synopsis, I had a feeling about her being much more than an antagonist of the show, having some reasons for her behaviour in the past which leads to the series basic foundation. Aki is first introduced to us as a very beautiful and smart girl, even making the audience love her, no matter how much rudeness she portrayed, which really wasn't a lot. Aki is subjected to the protagonists nasty plans which were very harsh and like an impossible dream. Making her fall in love with a young handsome man and then being dumped, which would break her heart. Seems a but too harsh doesn't it? Well of course, at leasts that's what I thought. But because of her being a bully in the manga, she doesn't get a lot of empathy from the get go, as the protagonists actions are insane but comprehensible. At this point, even though the horrible thins Aki had done, there was still a feeling I had within myself which made me never doubt Ali's actions and I though that she was being heavily misjudged despite her unfashionable entrance in the series.

The Cruel Princess

━━━━━━━━━━

━━━━━━━━━━

A nickname coined by the boys in her high school. Aki is a feminist, and an inspiration to many many girls in her school and other places. She's very pretty, has too grades in school and so her minor flaws are either unseen or made into a big deal. Her hate for men, is very strong, and though she doesn't always portray it, crushes the people that try to confess to her. This seems a bit harsh, but as I've seen many anime and manga, it was rather unique and new, unlike many series in which the main girl just goes out with anybody until the right person comes along. Aki was a major exception from this, and her uniqueness and attitude already made me create a liking to her, as a strong girl from outside but weak and fearing any emotional trauma from the inside. Now going along with why she's given than nickname is because, obviously no. 1 is because she's beautiful and has outstanding knowledge, hence ' princess ', and ' cruel ', as she dumps every guy who confesses their feelings to her and then gives them a nickname, which leads to the person being dumped, getting humiliated and bullied. A great way to dump guys and then make them feel like trash, right?

Eccentric Revelations

━━━━━━━━━━

━━━━━━━━━━

Despite all of her perfectness, her hate for men wasn't her only flaw. Aki was a person who would believe anything if were told by her personal attendant, or maid, Koiwai Yoshino. Her first date, was filled with eccentricity as she wore a magical girl outfit and even argued with little girls, getting equally embarrassed as if someone her age is telling her that all. Her eccentricity no. 2 is that despite having an amazing and slim figure, she's a big eater. We all know food is love and life, and Aki takes that seriously. Her appetite, is larger than anyone, and at first it seems like a weird habit, that she has to wallow her sadness and sort which usually is the case in many real life or anime scenarios, it isn't. Aki has a rare blood disorder or so I think which is why she eats that much, but is never really revealed in the manga let alone the anime, so everyone pulls it off as an odd habit, so as to make her ' non - perfect '. Also going on to the first point, she trusts the people she's supposed to trust so much, that it's actually bad for her, and even though that's a good thing, it results in backstabbing without her knowledge, which kinda seems okay since Aki is a character like that, and so her flaws are very common and realistic.

Reminiscing History

━━━━━━━━━━

━━━━━━━━━━

Around volume 4, was when the series actually started to get better, and after all of those disappointing fillers, was something I really enjoyed. We finally got a glimpse of history again, but this time from Aki, and Not Makabe. At first her when we saw, that she actually harboured feelings for Masamune of the past, I was in utter shock, though it wasn't really surprising later. We got to know that she actually loved her childhood friend as he supported her in times of crisis, and made her overcome all her sadness, only to cause her the greatest sadness. One day Masamune suddenly disappeared, causing her a heartbreak. This was really sad according to me, and now I greatly loved Aki as a character, due to her past and everything. Her hate for men seemed justified when she was already heartbroken by one, whom she trusted so much, and so to avoid getting hurt herself, hurt others; as said in her quote in the start of the blog. Her history, was obviously also a reality and not imagination. This was the part in the story where I looked forward to the manga so much, that I could hardly wait to see what it had in store for us; but of course it was big fillers again.

Relations With a Young Maid

━━━━━━━━━━

━━━━━━━━━━

What we see first, is a relationship of trust and bonding between two young girls of the same age, holding master and servant positions. Though the maid greatly was scolded, Aki yet trusted and loved her a lot. Yoshino was a very unique and good character, that had a lot to offer besides her breasts and fan service moments every minute. From birth she was maid to Aki, and her childhood wasn't a good one. She was practically denied the rights she deserved as a child, and has to work hard and suffer torture a lot. So to humble, Aki she helps Makabe to fall in love with him so she can get dumped later on, which seemed simple and justified. But of course, there was just a lot more than that, she was the reason to cause both of Aki and Makabe's childhoods to get ruined as well. But that is a story for another time ( since we're talking about Aki, sorrrry ). She disguised as Aki and dumped Makabe, which made her break Aki's heart even though Aki though it was Masamune who did that. That is the type of odd relationship they hold. At first view, it did seem wrong, but whatever Yoshino did wasn't on impulse but because this time she did deserve some happiness; the past revelation of Yoshino was also the factor that made me love Yoshino, making her my favorite character from the series. As there are literally only three main characters and others are filler characters.

A Sadist & A Masochist

━━━━━━━━━━

━━━━━━━━━━

In the end, and very unexpected yet cliched a bit ending, Aki and Makabe start going out together, now Masamune only having love and sadness in his heart for Aki. Honestly this ending was great, and covered for all the unsatisfactory fillers in this series. Their relationship was also beautiful, both being viewed as perfect, but having a million flaws from the shadows. Aki got true bliss, and even though she just got to know the truth about Kanetsugu, still trusted the real Masamune, which again didn't seem appropriate or realistic for a girl being deceived all the time, but yet was a happy and nice ending to the manga. Aki's heart was finally mended, all her hate vanishing and though she yet didn't go back to some normal girl, and a beautiful ending, which she very much deserved for being looked upon as the bad person by so many, when no one knew that who she actually was.
