TL;DR: My child self would've potentially "kinned" Maria Ushiromiya in an inordinate profoundly cathartic fashion; and Ryukishi07 truly does know his shit regarding writing social politics of familial toxicity, internalisation of the philosophies and attitudes of your very ancestors, and continued transgenerational trauma. With my favourite case study, thus far [I've solely read through chapter one and a bit of the second, as of, lamentably, other pre-determinedly prioritised affairs :(( ], being her. I freaking love Maria. She is truly the tbh-creature of all creatures.

. . . IF any fictional character was to be the utmost actualisation of how I painfully suffered, experienced, and proactively, voraciously thrived within my given [special] interests as a child who went undiagnosed with autism—and, now, years later, I'm equally ascertaining the same circumstance with ADHD—until I was a pubescent, Maria Ushiromiya would indubitably be the very epitome.

Which is why I—in all sanguinely messy strokes of cathartic partiality—believe her to the most empathetically unfeigned portrayal of a neurodivergent-coded child character I've fervidly engaged with throughout the aggregation of my relationship with fiction and, later, neurodivergent-coding within those very (sub/meta-)texts.

Furthermore, this is equally the best acute depiction of growing up in a family who will seemingly sporadically cherry-pick which parts of your aggregate neurodivergent identity are societally acceptable—if not directly profitable for their (financial, economic, moral, social) rationale, motives, aspirations, philosophies, external presentations to their wider concerned social relations, et cetera.whereas anything else should actually be either reprimanded, chastised, isolated, ostracised, infantilised, victimised by someone other than the individual presently in question themself, cured, et cetera. out of them. Or to simply turn a blind eye, as it's succinctly, simply parsed none of their responsibility  and/or  to ultimately not tarnish the otherwise good-standing, respected family's legacy , if others are perpetuating any of the aforementioned. 

As I digress, I could, presumably, truly pen down the length of the text of any given chapter of Unimeko regarding her, her relationship with the aggregation of the characters she actively interacts with (especially, her mother), and the wider (meta-)contexts of how Ryukishi07 writes the social politics of familial toxicity, internalisation of the philosophies and attitudes of your very ancestors, and continued transgenerational trauma; although this technical forum simply isn't the place for that kind of monographically penning down. haha.

Perhaps, crafting a damn Reddit account one of these days would ultimately serve me frutifully well, then.

Anyway, did you know that writing at an astonishing gradiloquent length regarding anything that either necessitates it and/or I am presently marinating all of my fanatatic interest in is a stim of mine? hahahahgha.

Another character who makes this series what it is. Cute, innocent, sympathetic, and with a unsettling psychotic dark side that comes out through her special interest in the occult? What's not to like there?
