See I was about to use my moderator powers to move your post to the “ridiculous theories” topic but I had way too much fun reading it That was a fun read, thank you, and I’m glad to see people talking about Riki’s and Masato’s relationship more.
I feel bad because I kinda sorta implied that in my post, didn’t I? But no, you’re right! Masato does not hate Haruka, and he cares for her just as much as he cares for the rest of the Busters. I guess it’s just he can’t stand her antics for very long is all. But it says a lot about their friendship if he can care for her that much despite that, and for that I highly respect Masato
