As selfish as she can be sometimes especially towards Rei, she is empty inside and wants to feel loved due to her father neglecting her of love and attention and mainly focused on Rei. And although that may make her a bad person, she is a well written and mysterious character.
I agree that from a professional stand point this is a great character, but this is just a fan opinion website and imma say it how i see it.
Just because a character is well written, it doesn't mean people are obligated to like them. Characters can be complex, intelligent, beautiful, and fit their role perfectly, but that doesn't make everyone like them and it certainly doesn't make up for their actions.
See, here's the thing. It's easy to just hit that hate button just because "She's a mean person! Boo!" But you really shouldn't, because she's a really well written antagonist and really well written antagonists are what help make your shows really good. Like this one. So appreciate characters like this, folks. I don't like her either, but Imma hittin' that love button.
I love her character. She's a horrible person without a doubt, but she's also just as much a victim of her father's Shogi obsession, high expectations, and bad home life just as much as Rei, so you can't help but pity her.
