I just don’t think it was all that different or even better than what happened to other male leads this season. But then if you were just mentioning as an example in an anime we normally wouldn’t expect any character development from, that’s something I’d agree with. Even if the development happened in the final episode when they told us and the character about it.

Perhaps what’s most noteworthy about it is that it exists. And it definitely did.

A lot of anime attempt to do character development in a tell-don’t-show way, like the Clannad example. There’s also a lot of anime that use flashbacks or backstory as a replacement for character development, one of my least favorite things about anime in general.

Heck, his growth only happened because his sister pointed it out to him at the end of the series. It feels like a cop-out engineered to tell us he had an arc, rather than just confidently showing it.

I guess it truly is better than nothing, and I’ll certainly take it over nothing, but it hardly makes him “the best bad good guy”, especially in a season with Leon, Shiroe, or Favaro.
