I noticed someone say it's sexist and hypocritical to forgive Ishida and not Ueno. But the difference between them is that Ishida got character development. Ueno continues to be a bitch throughout the movie.
Despite being hatable, she is a well-written character and I really want to re-watch the movie through a new perspective.
She was absolutely out of her mind. She grow up and started doing the same shit the mc did when he was a stupid and unconciuous kid. She not only did hurt physically Shouko, but as well ignored her existence and made fun of her while bullying the people that tried to get along with the girl. She was indeed more "mature" from the start and she used her intelligence in the worst way. In my opinion She was an evil hearted person that did much more damaged to everyone in the story and her final scene turning into a good person was sooooo fkn against her character nature. She should have end up alone and received the slap of karma all over her face.
Judging from a lot of these comments, I think Ueno was deliberately made to be an intelligence/maturity/self-awareness test for viewers, and it's equal parts disturbing, discomforting and hilarious that so many people utterly failed that test and are reduced to screeching, unthinking hatred and expose themselves are far more hateful bullies and garbage people than Ueno could ever hope to be. Also, very likely sexist hypocrites if they are able to forgive Ishida for doing literally the exact same things as Ueno.
Still a very well written and interesting piece of garbage person, in both the manga and the movie. Like, I enjoy getting so angry at her and aboring the things she says and does with a burning intensity, but with just as much intensity I want to see her learn better and find her place among Ishida's circle of friends, even if it means she has to suck it up and spend time around a girl she dislikes.
