Episode posts get annoying so here’s some filler while I procrastinate from Kuroshitsuji and CLANNAD.
After listening to two BLCDs with extremely similiar natures and comparing to a certain real life situtation, I’ve decided to write this post. Concerned BLCDs are Name of Love and Arashi no Ato (OnoD x Suzuki Tatsuhisa and MoriMori x You-kyan respectively) both dramas feature a couple with a gay seme and a straight uke. Typical one-sided love situation.
In Name of Love, the seme has been loved with the uke since middle school. Or at least, that’s when he had realized he liked him. I plan on reviewing this so I’ll get to the point. The drama ends with no real clue hinting to the duo getting together. It was unrequited love that remained unrequited love. Of course, the uke did love the seme, but perhaps not in the way the seme loved the uke. The ending is basically the same in Arashi no Ato. So that’s when I thought … “unrequited love doesn’t have to hurt, does it?”
You know, sometimes I wonder about things. Things that don’t really matter but still have me thinking for hours. Honestly, I like those type of “one-sided love” stories. It’s a very complicated situation to be in. And why is that? Because in a lot cases, the other person tends to be someone close to you; like in Name of Love. Or perhaps it’s someone you don’t really know. You seem them now and then, and maybe even talk to him. But you still love that person and because you don’t want to get involved any deeper, it becomes one-sided as well; like in Arashi no Ato. Hell, it could be something like in the second arc of Sekaiichi Hatsukoi in which the uke never even spoke to the seme; only admired him from afar. Long story short, there’s a connecting point between all “one-sided love” stories …
One or both people involved don’t want the situation to change. They’re at a standstill, both afraid of changing anything. Believe it or not, most humans are scared of drastic change in their own worlds. They rather suffer what’s bearable than completely change that and venture into the unknown. They call this cowardice right? I call it human nature.
Arashi no Ato is what had me thing about this fact more. You-kyan’s character said something like this: “We don’t say anything because we’re afraid of changing our own worlds” … and this is true in most cases. Some people can think brilliant things, but only few can act on them, correct?

There’s a lot of people who say that sometimes, when you listen to a song, read a book or something … you tend to realize how much you can relate the lyrics or story to something happening in your life at the moment. It’s a weird thing really but it makes me realize how “well, I’m not the only person in the world” … there’s a bunch of other people going through the same things as you and more. When I listened to Arashi no Ato, I realized that yet again and cursed the irony of me and the seme’s similiar situations.
Yeah, so since I don’t know where I’m going anymore I’m going to stop this post here. I somehow felt like voicing this because it was a burden on my brain. My point was this: Unrequited Love doesn’t have to hurt. It doesn’t have to unbearable. We all know love hurts. But I don’t think it’s the feeling itself that hurts. Liking another person is an innocent feeling. A happy one right? But it’s the things surrounding that feeling that make it such a pain. Like denial, or hopelessness and such.
(Now, why do I feel like a cheeky fifteen year old who thinks she’s getting a little ahead of herself?)
