"You're such a pathetic guy--- But you do have your looks going for you." - Tsuruko's line from episode 1 is still pretty much on point.

For some reason I feel like he would end up having the most pages under Menma/Anaru. xD He surely has some issues, but it definitely makes the story more interesting. Still somehow I'm rooting for his character to be redeemable because I feel bad for him.

His dark personality makes this series for me personally rather emotionally "heavy". The relationships between the characters and how volatile he is makes this series really interesting and really suspenseful I hope he is redeemed at the end hopefully gets together with Tsuroku.

I do too. He really does seem like a character who wanted to be special, but was always under someone's shadow. Somewhat like a little brother.

I'm starting to wonder where he fit in with the group dynamics, or how the group dynamics worked at all. He doesn't seem like he would positively interact with anyone other than Tsuruko. I hope he turns out to be dependable after this is over, since he seems like the cool-type of character that can get things done if they need to be done. He, Poppo, and Tsuruko are what the group needs to start events that bond them together, in my opinion, since the others seem too hesitant to do things on their own.

Is smelling your own dress more or less creepy than smelling a dead girl's dress?

Poor Yukiatsu. I'm angry at him - angry that he cheapens Jinta's genuine confusion and distress over Menma's appearance by turning it into a pissing contest, and angry that he tries to hurt Jinta as much as he can when he's already down. But I still feel more sorry for him than angry. He's basically pathetic at this point - Jinta at least turned his own distress inward, but Yukiatsu channels his into malovelance towards others. He needs help probably even more than Jinta does - but lucky for him Tsuruko knows it and (for some reason) still cares enough about him to act.

For some reason, I really like Yukiatsu. He's just so sad, yet so simple (seemingly). I can't help but want to hug him and tell him it will all get better . (I have the same emotional reaction with Anaru; but Jintan and the others...I think they have the strength to help themselves.)

I probably dislike Yukiatsu more than I feel sorry for him. I get that he's hurting plenty himself and clearly has a lot of issues to deal with. Still he has been a jerk for most of the time that we have seen him and is pretty creepy. Will have to see how he develops as the series goes on.

i think its clear that the guy is holding a superlong grudge against jintan from childhood b/c menma liked him back then.

yukiatsu simply cannot move on from that fact, hence why he harbors ill feelings towards jintan for so long...

i actually pity that guy, as pathetic as he is

Exposed. I'm most excited about seeing Yukiatsu's interaction with the group from episode 4 on. I'd be pretty pissed if they just pretend it never happened.

Hmm ... I think (at least as of the present ep) that I am in the "camp" of those who feel sorry for Yukiatsu.....

He obviously (at least to me) seems he still has a lot of issues to deal with.

I think Yukiatsu's dark, hidden issues (apparently stemming from his resentments in the past and feelings for Menma) make him a much more interesting character than the others, and I like him a lot.

I agree with this.

I can see why some strongly dislike Yukiatsu, but I think he really adds a lot to this series.

He makes it a bit darker and more suspenseful. He basically is a bit of an antagonistic figure, but nonetheless one with significant past and/or present ties with all of the major protagonists, and that adds some real spice to a slice of life drama, in my opinion.

I'll go with the bitch that betrayed him... at least save your legs if you're going to cross-dress as your 10-year dead childhood crush... in other words, there are so many things wrongs with the most socially acceptable character in this show, that it hardly qualifies for NoitaminA
