Dude calm down. I like Yoshino’s character, I really do, I just wish he had more to do in the story besides being normal. Sure, this boils down to personal taste and opinions on a story, but I for one like when all the characters serve more of a purpose and interact more with the whole thing.

I’ll say it again: Yoshino represents the normal life, the normal people. Yoshino’s short appearances in the routes reflect how the “normal life” goes on, what normal people do and what Kotarou might be doing now if he hadn’t gotten involved into the conflict. as well as the importance of that normal life aspect to Kotarou.
Now, this is your opinion on the matter, and it’s totally valid, but it’s not really the absolute truth. I for one just see it as wasted potential. And I’m saying that precisely because I liked his character, so I didn’t like that he was almost forgotten in most routes. I just don’t really connect with the “sole comic relief/normalcy character”. I tend to prefer stories where even the most secondary character can be more meaningful to the plot.
I’m not sure what you mean. It’s not like Rewrite felt “natural” even in it’s own terms (inconsistency on the plot and all). Yoshino being involved wouldn’t really hurt the experience, it would just make him more of a major character (being sprited and all). I would be totally fine with more of his appearences in the way it happened in Chihaya and Kotori’s route for example, where he doesn’t really know the whole picture but still does SOMETHING about the plot that is going on.
