I don't know if you'll even answer this... 



But which Kazuaki is which?

*Spoilers for Holiday star!*

This Kazuaki, number 7, is Hitori Kazuaki, because he is asleep. Number 20 is the orignal Kazuaki, because he is blushing and his birb form has a slightly said expression, if you look closely.

I wasn't quite sure but that's what I was thinking.

Holiday star really threw me for a loop. Kazuaki was my favourite from Hatoful Boyfriend but now I don't know anymore. :(

Kazuaki was also at the top of my list for my favorite character as well. I just loved his personality at the end of BBL, and his story drove me to tears. I understood why he did what he did during Holiday Star, but I still wish he hadn't done that. Like, instead the two Kazuaki's could have lived together. That would have been really nice and pretty funny as well. Oh well.

I mean, I feel like the worst part of what he did is the way he acted about it. He should have just stayed there and played the part, you know? Even if he didn't really care, to leave someone like that is just absolutely heartbreaking.

The other issue is the fact that the Kazuaki from Hatoful is basically gone, now since most things show Hitori and Kazuaki in the side stories and stuff. So, it's like the character I liked isn't even real anymore.

I am so conflicted. I was going to commission a plushie of him and then I finished Holiday Star and now I just don't know.

I agree, but I also feel part way that he was acting so cruel just to make sure he did not go as crazy. If he was to just sit there and watch Kazuaki die, Hitori would have felt guilty about it (if Hitori did hold any feelings to Kazuaki, he would have gotten depressed. Give Hitori's caring nature in Hatoful House and taking care of Shuu, I feel like did care about Kazuaki). While what he did was just so wrong and cruel to Kazuaki, Hitori had to do something or he would be running from the Hawks his whole life. What he choose to do was wrong in every way, but that is what his crazy mind thought of.

Yeah, that is also true. He isn't completely gone, but yes, he is mostly gone.

You are still allowed to like a character, even if you don't agree with all of the choices that he made in his life. Instead of thinking about the events in Holiday Star, just think about the main game. It isn't bad to like a character who made wrong choices. If you liked Kazuaki before Holiday Star, than like that one. He is still the sleepy math teacher, after all.

I know. But it's also difficult for me to like him for that, too. Because (might be TMI) but I've dealt with suicidal thoughts and depression and I've been in spots where people didn't care and I can't imagine being in Kazuaki-kun's position. It's just something that's hard to accept in that sleepy math teacher. 

But I do think he regrets what he did. I think that maybe he's so sleepy because he sleeps away the thoughts of Nageki and Kazuaki, even. It also happened only slightly after Nageki's death and it's clear that affected him for a very long time in ways that aren't normal. But, I guess he's also highly logical in a sense, too. That he rationalized Kazuaki-kun wasting his life away, and he just wanted to use it for himself and his plans.

I don't know. It's a hard reality to cope with, either way. It's awesome how a character who really didn't have that significant a part in the majority of Hatoful played such a massive part in Holiday Star. I really sort of admire that Hato Moa can make such complex stories and amazing characters while also creating some hilarious content, too. This is the kinda stuff I live for, the stuff that makes you laugh one moment and cry the next.
