You say “odd”; I say “amazingly, hideously creepy”. On top of which, his first reaction when learning that his now-adult daughter had a boyfriend was to start talking about him getting her pregnant. The sense I get with Tekeru isn’t malicious; it’s something slimy and horrible.
Yeah, offscreen and suspiciously quickly. Even that managed to look somehow dubious. It makes Takeru seem a bit manipulative.Though, didn't Yuki & her father reconcile?
This is a cute lightweight comic that isn’t going to go into really dark places. But if you wanted a lightweight, seemingly innocuous metaphor for an outright abusive parent-child relationship, Takeru and Yuki would work. The character manages to give me the shivers.
Yvan is mostly just a sexually desperate geek. That isn’t an excuse; plenty of geeks are much nicer people than him. He really does seem to think of women as objects. And Nathan is just an off-the-shelf power abuser. Funnily enough, I don’t think he does a single bad thing that some nicer characters in the comic don’t also do — but he does all of it, a lot, with enthusiasm.Nathan is a slimeball with significant power and charisma over naive actors, and Yvan is a desperate douchebag who hasn't (yet?) reached Nathan's level of sleaze.
