As stated in the title there are spoilers to the series in here, though they are not huge spoilers, if you have not seen this series yet I recommend you read at your own discretion, but don't get mad at me. Mika is by far one of my favorite characters in this series. Sadly we don't get to see as much of him as I would like, that is at least until recently. With the second season wrapping up next week I wanted to discus some of my favorite and least favorite characters.
First off I just want to say my first impressions of Mika were not bad, but they were not good either. At first I thought he was especially oblivious and gullible. But as is later revealed it was an act to help his family. Even so, he was still a sweet kid. Also he is ridiculously adorable! In the time that we first see him as a child to later when we see him in his teens, there is really not much change. He got taller and looks a tad bit older, but that's it, he's still just as adorable as before as you can see in the final picture above.
Mika suffers a tragic fate early on, but I have to say I was not surprised by the outcome of that fate. It was kind of predictable, but not so predictable that it ruined the series. I admire Mika's dedication to his "brother" Yuu. Despite the years away from him, and Yuu thinking he was dead, Mika has a strong desire to protect him. Meanwhile he struggles with his own internal turmoil over what he has become and his newfound hate in humans. I don't know what the future holds for Mika, somehow I get the feeling he will not get the happy ending that I hope he gets, I hope that I am wrong though. I have to admit that when I started watching this I got the impression that it was going to be a shonen ai, I don't think it will turn out like that now though.
