The brothers’ conflict in the anime series is a classic example of male-female rivalry. The brothers are brothers by birth, but their relationship is strained because of their rivalry. In this article, we will look at the brother-sister relationship between Tsubaki and Masaomi, as well as Hikaru’s resentment of his sister’s decision to give up her beloved sport.


The two brother characters in the anime, Tsubaki and Setsubou, have many similarities and are often in conflict. In this episode, Tsubaki is a more direct brother than Setsubou, and his feelings towards his younger brother are also obvious. Although Tsubaki may be jealous of his sister, he is proud of her, and believes she is better at acting than he is. However, when it comes to acting, Tsubaki is less than pleased with his own. The character’s directness is appealing to Ema, and she wants him to stick with his own style.

During the conflict, Masaomi’s father has a vision of the future and wishes to become a surgeon himself. However, the twins’ conflict starts when Tsubaki refuses to kiss Ema, who is now his lover. When he is asked why he refuses, he claims that it was because he saw his own bite mark and was upset. However, the ensuing kiss makes Azusa upset and she tells Masaomi to go to the hospital.


Hikaru is a novelist, who visits Italy to gather materials for his next novel. In a flashback in Ch. 27, Hikaru tries to force Ema to choose him in a “round” of a game, but the latter refuses.

While Hikaru cares deeply for Ema, he still has his perverted side, and he tries to control her behavior with blackmail.
