Sunao also isn't effeminate even after wearing sailor uniforms and schoolgirl dresses, even if the artstyle more or less portrays him as cute. He's no Mako-chan, letting a bunch of girls subjugate him. Instead he is a man in control of his own destiny. He simply found purpose in a form of a pet, but given his young age and the amount he goes out of its way to care for it, who could blame him? He is livng proof that even a very simple slice-of-life can have very barebone GAR qualities like responsibility.
