NO, BUT CAN WE PLEASE TALK ABOUT HOW IMPORTANT THIS EXCHANGE IS.
I’m calling it a night and all, and am working on a bigger post, but this is huge.
You - the female protagonist - are being pretty much stalked by some creepy guy with a camera who keeps passing photos of you around the school and yes, they’re not pervy or inappropriate but they ARE creepshots and being taken without your knowledge or consent and it’s not okay.
And Junpei - the wise-cracking idiotic bro of a best friend - at first seems to try to take the responsibility of finding out what’s going on and who’s behind it because “chivalry” and bullshit, but when he actually sees the creep in the library and wants to do something, HE SAYS ALL OF THIS, if you question why it’s anything to worry about.
Junpei acknowledges how scary and problematic this kind of behaviour is because WHERE DOES IT STOP? Sure it seems harmless now, but what will it escalate to? If any of you have ever been in this sort of situation or a similar one to it before, you know how stalking can and often does escalate intothreatening and violent behaviour.
There is so much I want to say about Junpei’s social link and it’s absolute deconstruction of the concept of the friendzone and examination of agency, but for now I will just say this: it is unbelieveably refreshing to see a character often casually portrayed as the shallow “bro” display a legitimate understanding of problematic behaviour and why it’s so problematic.
