Mitsuya, Hakkai, and Gay Coding
So the Tokyo Revengers' fandom's notorious and rampant homophobia makes this topic almost impossible to discuss anywhere outside of Tumblr... But I at least wanted to touch on it here.
Mitsuya and Hakkai are almost certainly gay coded, and there's a reason it's important.
Mitsuya is gay coded individually. He's written to be read as a young gay teen.
The most compelling piece of evidence to this is his Home Economics class. He is the only man there, seemingly friends with a ton of girls, who all seem to trust and like him.
Note here that Japanese culture isn't American culture - men being casual friends with women isn't as normalized as it may be here, and in most places a man in an otherwise all-woman club would be considered to be trying to "get with" one or more of them. We never, ever hear this about Mitsuya.
In fact, Mitsuya is one of the few TR characters that we see show no interest whatsoever in women. The most notable scene here is the beach scene, Kazutora and Pah-Chin both stare at the women in bikinis, but Mitsuya and Draken instantly dash to the ocean without paying it any attention. This is even pointed out by Kazutora, who remarks on how strange it is that neither of them cared.
("So is Draken gay coded?" My heart says yes, but his relationship with Emma says no. Draken is just desensitised to seeing female bodies.)
And of course, sewing and fashion, very stereotypically feminine things, are Mitsuya's main interests. While it's not exactly progressive to say that effeminate = gay, I implore you once again that this is all being written by an old Japanese ex-gang member, and not a modern day American LGBT teen.
My point is that, though it's a little stereotypical, Mitsuya has many qualities that would liken him to an old-school depiction of a gay teen. Which, in a way, is in line with the old-school aesthetic and worldview of Yankees and Yankee culture.
Now - Hakkai.
Hakkai is not gay coded individually - he's a model, but that's not seen as a particularly effeminate thing, and he's shown to have some interest in girls, seeing as he freezes up talking to them.
However, Hakkai is absolutely intended to be read as having a crush on Mitsuya. Honestly I can't even bring myself to write a paragraph explaining it, so here's a bullet list of things Hakkai has done:
Repeatedly remarked how much he "really likes" Mitsuya, coupled with other characters talking about this. This is not something that happens to any other duo with this frequency.
Set Mitsuya's face as his phone lockscreen.
Immediately thought of Mitsuya when the words "I like him" were spoken.
Said "Who wouldn't fall in love with him" after something that Mitsuya did almost exclusively for his sake.
Immediately upon finding out that it WASN'T about Mitsuya, was completely baffled and confused about how it could possibly be anyone else.
Gave Mitsuya a specialised nickname that consists of shortening his given name and adding "-chan". Given names are seen as more intimate in Japan, while the "-chan" suffix is mostly used for girls, younger relatives, or romantic partners. Mitsuya isn't a girl, and he's older than Hakkai, who looks up to him. So... Again, this is not mimicked by any other duo.
Chose a career based on what Mitsuya wanted to do in an attempt to be close to him.
Then, when he got more famous and busy, still carved out time to visit him seemingly very regularly.
Seemingly ignored a crowd of girls that all wanted to talk to him to make his way to Mitsuya as quickly as possible.
Straight up called Mitsuya "hot".
Maybe some of these things individually could be read as a coincidence, or a joke, but compiling it all in a list definitely shows that this was, more than likely, very intentional.
"But he says he sees Mitsuya like a brother!!" Hakkai looks up to and admires Mitsuya, who, as a child, taught him how to act and inspired him to be better. This is how Hakkai thinks brothers should be, and given his issues with his real brother, it's not a surprise that he's looking for brotherly guidance elsewhere.
However, three things.
Hakkai is very young and inexperienced. At that age, it's not difficult to confuse romantic feelings for familial ones.
Relationships change and grow with people. Many childhood friends-to-lovers feel as if they're siblings when they're little kids, but then transition to a relationship. This is also a VERY common anime trope that seems to only be an issue when they're both boys. 🤔
"Like a brother" is, sometimes, used as a euphemism in East Asian countries to censor or hint at gay lovers.
Mitsuya is almost certainly coded to be gay, and Hakkai is almost certainly written with a crush on Mitsuya in mind.
And why is this important?
Because they're both scrappy, edgy, shitty teenage boys.
Neither of them are misfits or outcasts. Neither of them are weak or dainty or need protection. They're not perverts, or deviants, they're not girly or looked down on. They're loved, respected by their friends. Their friends don't question their interests, or their bonds.
They're allowed to just be two teen boys that happen to be gay.
Two teen boys that happen to be gay, that are accepted at face value for who they are by their friends, no questions or conditions.
Nothing more, nothing less.
You can't pay for that kind of representation.
Y/n having a crush on Yuzuha
Y/n : Do you wanna play twenty questions?
Yuzuha : sure, lets go
*yuzuha reading the question*
Yuzuha : Y/n what is your favorite color?
Y/n : Triangle. Do you like girls?
Random Headcannon of the day:
Kakucho works out to "Eye of the Tiger" and puts it on repeat. Catch him doing 200 pushups to the beat with a deadass look on his face.
Izana is sick and tired of the song. He can now sing it off the top of his head and he hates it. What's worse is that Kakucho works out at the ass crack of dawn. He sometimes demands for his friend to play something else, but Kakucho pretends not to hear it.
Since we don’t know for sure the status of Baji, Kazutora, Emma, and Izana in the original timeline… since Takemitchy went back in time to change the future, had they been alive in the original timeline… is Takemitchy indirectly responsible for their deaths? (In the timelines they died)
okay sooo imagine waking up next to ,,, wakasa 🙄 he’s snoring lightly (mf that’s so cute i’m gonna cry) and you couldn’t help your snicker bcos he still wears the same bored expression that he does when he’s wide awake (lmao this is canon, he sleeps unenthusiastically) you watch him for a brief moment until he slowly shifts in position and his hand reaches out to check if you’re there beside him (aaaaa helppp) before finally settling it on your waist. his thumb draws gentle circles on your exposed skin, awakening his mind and warming up his chest (i am squealing with tears). he loosely tugs you closer to him while he opens his sleepy eyes and murmuring you a raspy “good morning” (wakasa voice reveal when lmfaoao) to which you answer him with a soft kiss on his lips (i am ascendingggg huhuhu) “good morning to you too, love”

characters — rindou + ran + mikey
✿ — 𝐫𝐢𝐧𝐝𝐨𝐮 𝐡𝐚𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐢
rindou was currently in the bathroom, scrubbing the blood from his shirt. not minding the ac that sent chills down his bare back as he roughly managed to get the stain out until his spine was suddenly warm — with a chest against him.
“ wait, give me a minute— “ “ can you hold me? “
his voice dies down, not allowing himself to go any further. he dropped the clothing into the sink, not a single worry for it anymore and turned around to hold a hand behind your head and the other encircled around your waist and he can hear you inhale his scent.
“ did something happen today that you aren’t telling me? “ he inquires flatly, eyebrow raised as he attempts to see your face that was buried into his chest but you shook your head, “ just been long — needed your comfort if that’s okay. “
rindou trusted you; if there was something, you’ll tell him eventually when you feel like it. for now, he’ll hold you like you requested.
✿ — 𝐫𝐚𝐧 𝐡𝐚𝐢𝐭𝐚𝐧𝐢
ran was sitting on the couch, his head thrown back with his eyes closed. the moment he had arrived from work, he was already on the way to take his rest. you hadn’t greeted him, he knew you were in the shower so he took it as the time to rest until you came out.
but he heard soft footsteps towards him, peaking to see you in one of his shirts that hung over your form and your hair still wet but eyes down onto the floor below you. without a single word, you placed a leg beside his own, straddling his lap and wrapping your arms around his neck with a mumble, “ missed you today. “
“ today? “ ran teases, arms loosely ringing around your hips, “ what about the other days? “
you bury your face into the crease of his neck, a hand playing with the ends of his hair with a retort, “ don’t push it, “ you can feel him play with the hem of his shirt and you continue, “ just today was a little more than usual. “
your words made his chest tighten, he didn’t like that you weren’t feeling your best today and yet you went to him — a criminal, to seek comfort. his arms tighten around your hips to nod his head, “ ‘kay, darling — i’ll take care of you. “
✿ — 𝐦𝐚𝐧𝐣𝐢𝐫𝐨 “ 𝐦𝐢𝐤𝐞𝐲 “ 𝐬𝐚𝐧𝐨
mikey was currently eyeing down the city below — the skyscraper he was currently in provided only the best views for only the worst work, crime. even so, as dark his world was; the only light source in life had currently walked in with a quiet knock.
“ are you busy..? “ you inquire, timid and almost saddened.
he turns to you with a frown, opening his arms the moment he heard your shaky voice and you were already making your steps towards him. privacy in his quarters so he was able to comfort you in any way you needed without a limit.
embracing you, he hummed down at you with hand now reaching to cup your cheek. he studied your expression and pouts, , “ what’s wrong — “ “ let’s go out and get dorayaki — i want to spend time with you. “
his eyes brightened, making your blank face falter into a small smile after his reaction, “ really? “ you nod in confirmation — honestly, it wasn’t you who needed comfort but to provide comfort to him.
Pairing: Manjiro "Mikey" Sano x Reader
Song: Orange by Joni
Warnings: Mentions of shoot!ng, Death but no spoilers
A/N: This is pretty much a mix of Mikey in the past and the present and it doesn't follow the main storyline. I didn't indicate which is the past or the present because I wanted to leave it up for y'all to differentiate.
~ Sundown I wander around // And always end up on your side of town // You Used to say You'd never move away // But even if you do // All of the avenues I named after you // Will stay the same // Always hold your place ~
Mikey would often drive past your family's old residence- the place most familiar to the both of you. In his downtime, he'd drive past the many places he used to take you to, like the park or the corner store.
He'd remember the first time you kissed his cheek; The scent of your perfume mixed with the smell of your shampoo was like a dream to him! He remembers the hot feeling that flashed across his face and the way you quickly turned away to hide the mirroring blush that blossomed on your features.
"You kissed me," He said with a growing smile. Your fingers fumbled with the cap on your bottle of juice and your ears twinged with the heat of slight embarrassment.
"So?" You let out a huff and Mikey chuckled.
"Do it again."
~ Cause we belong // Getting lost in the orange glow // Drive around downtown // 'Cause You can't go home // Touching you feels like forever ago // ~
Your eyes were puffy and red with tear streaks leading towards the fast-moving ground below you and Mikey as he sped around the city on his beloved motorbike. Your arms wrapped tightly around his torso while you tried to forget the earlier events prior to Mikey picking you up.
Your parents were constantly arguing, day after day and you'd grown tired of it all. Hearing the things they'd say to each other made you think that love didn't exist until Mikey came into your life and brightened everything up! He knew what was going on so he did his best to keep your mind off things by driving you around and taking you somewhere away from it all.
Mikey remembers the way your arms would tighten their hold around him if he hit a bump on the road or if he made a wide turn around a tight corner. The warmth that radiated off of you has never left its place on him.
~ I'll be your dying star // I'll be your wilting flower // Just tell me where you are // And I'll come running back ~
Static filled Mikey's brain and the feeling of pins and needles surrounded his body. His eyes losing their light as he stared at your body on the cold wet concrete. He couldn't hear anything else around him. He couldn't see anything or anyone around him. All he heard was Draken trying to explain that a member from a different gang had shot you, but even then it was like his head was underwater.
Why is this happening? He remembered thinking.
If I had been there sooner, maybe you'd still be here. Right? He asked, standing in front of your family headstone. The cold air blew around him, pushing and pulling at his hair almost like it was taunting him.
Walking off, he remembered how you would tell him how you wanted to leave the city so he would take you out towards the sea to watch the red-orange glow of the setting sun. The warmth from the kiss you gave him and the warmth of the sun never once leaving his soul.
