Pretty much, Hatsumi is pretty spineless and wishy-washy and Ryouki is a spoiled brat. Shinogu deserved better.
The only thing that bugged me in that series they never got around with that Subaru, Akane and that Kansai friend of Shinogu's subplot. They pretty much dropped it.
Also, the light novel that was an alternative Shinogu end kinda sucked. LOL I MIGHT LIKE YOU SOMETIME IN THE FUTURE, MAYBE. The fuck.
