NOW WHO COULD THAT BE.
And is that weirdo REALLY the same person?
Amu Hinamori really is a boy-magnet, huh? Got stuck in a love triangle between:
Bachelor #1: Hotori Tadase
Tadase + Amu = Tadamu
Ikuto + Amu = Amuto
So…….. WHAT’S IT GONNA BE.
AMUTO or TADAMU????
IS THIS EVEN A QUESTION THAT SHOULD BE ASKED? STOP WASTING YOUR TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!! HELLO???? WHO WOULD YOU PREFER? THE HOT GUY OR THE BIG HEADED LITTLE BLONDIE BRAT?
Sorry. >__< I will try and be rational afterwards. :P Anyway, that aside, Ikuto is much better for Amu. He’s good looking (always a plus XD), manly (required of all guy characters), a bad boy type (the best kind), but actually a selfless, kind person who really cares about Amu and values others much more than himself.
One thing that puts me off about Tadase is that he actually admitted to liking Amulet Heart first before liking Amu herself!!!!! Amulet Heart is one of Amu’s “would-be selves”, so basically what Amu would be in the future, a possibility. Not actually Amu herself.
Another thing I disapprove of the Tadamu relationship is that Amu ONLY liked him in the first place because he LOOKED cute. Feelings based on appearance never work out, and those guys NEVER end up with the girl in Shoujo manganime. TOO BAD> cause he’s a sissy!
I’m not saying he’s not nice, he’s just too effeminate. And, although I’m not saying his attraction to Amu is not real, it’s just not in the right place. He liked Amulet Heart before liking Amu herself, and that’s just not acceptable because that’s hurting Amu’s feelings. Ikuto likes Amu as Amu from the very start.
But the main thing I dislike about Tadase is that he’s easily manipulated and stupid. As a child, Tadase was attached to Ikuto, even calling him: “Onii-tan”. He loved Ikuto, but he changed his mind quicker than anyone after hearing some rumor and misunderstanding Ikuto’s actions, swearing to hate Ikuto forever and fight him, calling him a “thief”. So that shows how deep Tadase’s feelings run.
“Tadase kept on yelling, “Tsukiyomi Ikuto! I suspected right! I will stop letting you do as you please, Tsukiyomi Ikuto! Tsukiyomi Ikuto! Tsukiyomi Ikuto! Tsukiyomi Ikuto! Tsukiyomi Ikuto! Tsukiyomi Ikuto! Tsukiyomi Ikuto! Tsukiyomi Ikuto!”
I’ve never been so angry at Tadase before. Earlier, I didn’t mind him, but now he’s getting on my nerves.” – rosebudpuppy from Crunchyroll
I know that’s how Ikuto wanted it though, to keep the people he cares about (namely Amu and Tadase) away from the danger and problems that surround him by doing things that make them hate him and purposely making misunderstandings just so that all the people he cares about will hate him and stay away from him.
There aren’t many people in the world who can do that.
Ikuto is being controlled by Easter because of his parents, he is not doing anything bad by his own will. He is chained down, forced to do the dirty work, thrust into a cynical view towards batsu tamas, and in need of Amu’s kagayaki (light) and care. Don’t you understand Ikuto needs Amu and Amu loves Ikuto (although she’ll never admit it, tsundere girl)?
Plus Ikuto, despite being described as aloof in countless wikis and summaries, has super cute moments:
And he cares a LOT about Amu. They have really cute moments. The whole point of an anime/manga pairing is to have the male make the female all flustered. XD
And Amu DOES love him. You can’t help who the girl likes, right?
See how much she misses him after he leaves???
Now see how happy she is when he comes back?
I think it’s pretty obvious now who Amu should be with.
And to think that Satelight (the producers) single-handedly destroyed this romance in the anime, purposely leaving out as many Amuto parts from the manga as possible unless necessary in the anime, including the airport scenes and how Ikuto confesses his love to Amu at the theme park.
How could they? One of the most amazing couples in the universe of manganime! This is a CRIME. Somebody good should remake Shugo Chara the way the manga was. I’d accept some differences, but you gotta draw the line when they start changing the plot and stuffing fillers everywhere they can.
I’d understand the people who support TADAMU. Although I was pretty harsh towards Tadase, he is really not a bad person. You can’t help who he likes either. At least, in the manga he’s not. In the manga, he gives up because he knows she is supposed to be with Ikuto and wants what’s best for her. I think we should learn from the manga Tadase. The anime Tadase, however, pisses me off. Most people who read the manga support AMUTO for a reason. Drop the anime and read the manga first.
So that concludes this post. Support AMUTO, everyone! ^_^
