Zetsuen no Tempest 02
According to Wikipedia, Mahiro’s character is supposed to allude to Hamlet because both are willing to cast aside their morals to get revenge.
In the play, it was Hamlet’s lack of action that escalated his problems. If he had just stabbed Claudius when he had the chance, then his mommy would still be alive and he’d be alive ruling Denmark. Perhaps Hamlet’s inaction is represented by the one year span after Aika’s death.
I’m also seeing Mahiro more as Laertes than Hamlet. If Aika is Ophelia, then it’s only natural for Mahiro to be Laertes. Hell, Mahiro actually quoted him this week: “I loved Opehlia/Aika. Forty thousand brothers could not, with all their quantity of love, make up my sum.” It’s been a couple of years since I read the play, but I think Mahiro’s peresonality is much more similar to Laertes’.
In that case, I think Yoshino would fit Hamlet more. Wiki says that Yoshino’s character alludes to Romeo because of his secret affair that had a shit ending. (In that case, Mahiro would probably be Tybalt.) Is this implying that Yoshino will commit suicide? Both Hamlet and Romeo die in the end, so is this guy doomed?
- They really like framing Mahiro.
- The walking ending sequences have become really popular. I’m sick of them.
- HanaKana’s singing isn’t bad, but the song is dull.
- Evangeline is seriously the Nana character of the year.
