I'm not deciding anything. Four episodes build on his character as someone who is complacent, distant, and emotionally uninvolved which are exactly the very same reasons why I started liking this series, because both of them are not very outward about their emotions. For me, it becomes emotional because there is an intangible presence of romance. Or rather, it is the absence of romance that makes it romantic.

Maybe it was just a brave front, and that's his real character. He has the whole country on his shoulders, he had to do something.

So, by this same principle, I ask you: "But who are you to decide what his character is?"

Huh? What? Recheck your previous post. You seem pretty sure of yourself when you talk about his character. Whereas I gave a second possibility, and used the word "maybe". Also, I am me, so there.

Episode 6

A rival for Livi's affection has arrived, one with much better grace and etiquette than Nike does, and her name is Luna from the Ocean Kingdom. But she is nothing more than a childhood friend who Livi has no romantic feelings for, at least since his sudden promotion to king. So they have an extremely dangerous challenge to decide who gets Livi, and Luna went off the cliff and had to be saved by Nike's wind. That was a cute episode, and Luna's affection for Livi is really cute. But she just doesn't realize that she can't force love on him and that there's always something that she can never be that he is after. Luna returned to the ocean, but I do hope that she does come back later in the show.

And LOL at those scrolling comments typically seen with a live Nico Nico Douga video:

Episode 6


Oh shit, rival time.

And already, I can barely stand her with her voice and mannerisms.

I enjoy the show but I'm getting sick of hearing that song every episode.

It was a nice episode, but not my favorite so far. I guess I was kinda looking for some actual rivalry, and the whole thing felt a little bit rushed. They went from conflict to resolution in like an in-universe hour. And count me in with the crowd who wishes for a new theme song for her to sing...

This did touch me.

I was ok with the rival showing up because it allowed Nike to better understand her real feelings for Livi. As long as this does not turn into a love triangle event (I don't thinks it will) it servers to allow character growth.

LOL the first time I saw this character I thought Ciel from black butler in a romantic comedy, but now I enjoy the Livi character for who he is, and love the characters, I can't wait for more, and loving the romance being super awkward yet growing

Ep 6

Its the same damn song! Come on!

I guess we're in the rivals stage of this show.

I can't feel any sympathy for Luna, she was too much of a jerk at the beginning. There's a certain threshold where you can be a redeemable jerk but she crossed the line already.

To be fair, it is actually an ancient song passed down through generations of rain calling mystics, perfected to bring harmony to the elements which bring about rain. It is not like nature is going to get bored of hearing the song.

I thought it wasn't the words but the feelings attached to the realized beauty of the land or whatever the hell it was in the first/second episode?
