MVP Hiiragi! And lmaoo Yatsude, I think she's been the straight man to so much casual crazy by these two that she had to stop believing that they have a more complex personality than what's overtly shown, for the sake of her sanity.
Thanks Throbelisk. Dang I mixed the twins up @e@
One man's invention is another man's unemployment. Condolemces to sensei.
The longer this series go on, the more I feel like it's some big puzzle that's impossible to solve. Like, it's been absurd from the start, but it keeps adding layers to its absurdity and giving it a sense of internal logic.
That's true! I noticed it as well. I've been trying to tie up common themes into perhaps understanding even just a bit of it. But rn I'm still all over the place (plus naming the interactions would definitely change the feel of the story)
Dang, shiho's backstory is really, REALLY well presented. Overbearing family relations can really grate on you, even if they're not as upfront like in Shiho's case. Physical distance would be the best, otherwise compromise and slowly(with lots of trial and error, and looots of breakdowns from both sides and an external support web) building back relationships would be the way to go.
^ Yep, going off the discussion, they do have offline collabs afaik, and I know some concerns have happened because of it (i.e. Pekora being uncomfy with Matsuri's advances off stream during a group collab) and it all boils down to how the person behind the character treats it, and their fans possible reactions to it.
I think it might also worth noting that afaik most of the kisses actually happen off-stream or is not reflected by their avatars, and a concept of tee-tee (lit. meaning precious, can be connotated as yuri fanservice specifically for the fans) does exist and probably fills up the fictional half of their act.
edittt: just so everyone's on the same page Matsuri's toned it down a lot after realizing it made other people uncomfy. She's still mostly a pervert but doesn't go touchy feely on people she's not completely close with. Other members have also reacted normally to them, particularly Suisei who actually mirrored the action because she thought it was a girl friendship gesture from Matsuri. Dancho(Noelle, another hololiver) had also brought up regards on touchy feely stuff being really common in her old all girl's school and how she was apparently unfazed by it, so culture does also play some part here.
