Loveless (TV Mini-Series – ) - IMDb
On Ritsuka and Soubi's relationship being abusive; do you think that their In some instances, like Yuiko saying 'Soubi is Ritsuka's boyfriend', it psyches or symbolism with the faint purpose of stirring an interest in meta. Ritsuka's relationship with everyone develops a little more with each volume, although He does not enjoy being the 'Master', and nor does he enjoy ordering Soubi .

The fact of the matter is that unless they have been tampered with, people seem to very easily like Ritsuka. Specific relationships dealing with Ritsuka: At the beginning of the series, Ritsuka absolutely put Seimei on a pedestal, as children sometimes do with people they attach onto to protect them. The point at which they stop doing this is the point in which they reach a higher stage of development. However, Ritsuka does still seem incredibly conflicted over his brother and understandably so.
This is another relationship where it becomes undoubtedly obvious that Ritsuka is a child. Misaki is an abuser and very clearly feels extremely negatively towards Ritsuka. She seems to pretty much solidly hate Ritsuka, though something seems to breakthrough after Nisei pays a visit to her. As I stated above, though, a black arrow relationship does not necessarily mean a relationship of hatred; it means a negative one, and Misaki, no matter what, currently seems to feel negatively towards Ritsuka.Relationship Goals
Ritsuka, on the other hand, loves his mother, no matter what she does to him. This is incredibly common in abused people, especially children. Ritsuka seems to want to do whatever he possibly can to get his mother to like him, even if it means trying to find a way to give up his current self and revert back to something that he once was before.
He feels bad for her and loves her and brushes off her abuse. Ritsuka and Natsuo and Youji: I particularly like it because unlike so many other relationships in the series, this one is extremely beneficial to both parties. This is a relationship often looked over, but the three of them have helped each other.

When Soubi leaves him, the first people Ritsuka goes to are Natsuo and Youji and even though it takes a hiccup for everything to get moving, they help him move forward to the next step. They make a good bunch of genuine friends and have a good relationship.
This is one that people tend to go one way or another with and hardly ever in the middle. Kio did, at one point, strongly dislike Ritsuka, but this was before he ever met him and for the sole reason that Kio assumed Ritsuka would be like his brother.
A lot of characters in Loveless deal with trying to find someone who understands them and their way of thinking and a lot of the characters seem to hold a lot of value to finding someone who understands. Ritsuka and Kio are no different. Seimei is, by writing standards, our third main character. Above I talked about Ritsuka and how anyone who gets to know him seems to feel very positively towards him and how the only person who really dislikes him or has a negative relationship with him is his mother, and those feelings are hinted at being influenced heavily by an outside force.
Seimei is the exact opposite of Ritsuka. In the relationship chart, all feelings that go towards him are negative to some degree. Anyone who gets to know Seimei in the least develops negative feelings towards him to some degree. Misaki seems to put Seimei on a high pedestal and even goes as far as to refer to him as the man of the house.
However, with everyone else, Seimei burns his bridges at an alarming rate. With where we are now, every relationship that leads to Seimei is negative in some degree. Specific relationships dealing with Seimei: This relationship is hard to grasp and the characters themselves are even harder to fully grasp.
Both these characterizations for both characters are fundamentally wrong. Seimei is someone who wants control and power and holds himself as higher than anyone and everyone else in the series. Everyone else is below him. Nisei, on the other hand, may be fundamentally a bad person and he may not be.
He is sadistic, but he also does undoubtedly feel emotions. He may not acknowledge or even know it, but Nisei is completely in love with Seimei. On a basic level, their relationship is easy to grasp.
Seimei and Mikado were once friends or friendly associates, and then Seimei betrayed Mikado by ripping her innocence and dignity from her. Mikado describes herself as not being like other people, as not being able to understand or control her feelings or the feelings of others and states that she can only understand others and situations if she has a reason. She also says that Seimei was the same way and the reason they bonded was because it was natural to get along with each other when no one else could understand them.
It was a bond even stronger than the one she has with her Fighter, who she has a good relationship with, but still seems to miss the fact that Seimei was someone who understood her. Because of the fact that their relationship was so strong, the betrayal hurt more.
Some people wonder why Mikado is so vindictive when it comes to hunting down Seimei. Seimei and Mikado are implied to have known each other a long time, as Mikado makes a comment to Ritsuka that he looks like the splitting image of Seimei at 12, and Seimei burned his bridge with her in the absolute worst way possible and took everything from her.
This relationship is pretty straightforward.
The two of them absolutely hate each other, Seimei because Ritsu talks down to him and thinks of him as a child, and Ritsu hates Seimei because of his treatment of Soubi, which is ironic given that Ritsu was the first one to really break down Soubi.
It does get misrepresented, occasionally. Above anything and everything else, the way this relationship is portrayed in fanworks bothers me like nothing else.
Nagisa is absolutely not head over heels in love with Ritsu. She has romantic feelings for Ritsu, but she is not in love with him. To put it simply, Nagisa has spent over twenty years trying to figure out a way to close the gap Sanae left behind while at the same time, trying to hold onto every piece of her that she has.
We see that exchange of power perfectly epitomized in Soubi's desire to be controlled or owned. One person who will completely control me. It comes from the Submissive placing complete trust in their Master to make decisions that will be in the Submissive's best interest and will help them grow as a person.
That doesn't mean that abuse isn't present in this lifestyle-A submissive places total control in their master's hands, complete faith, and trusts their master to use that control in a way that will be in the Submissive's best interest. If this control is misused to intentionally cause legitimate harm, its abuse. Each individual is unique, so each reason behind wanting to submit completely will be unique; however, a rather popular one that I've come across is the issue of having control issues and the only way of being free of the weight of the responsibility of making decisions about their own life and future is to give that responsibility to someone they trust inexplicably.
Now, if we take that understanding and apply it to what we know at face value about Loveless, it begins to paint a more detailed picture of these characters. We know that Fighters rely on their Masters for their survival. We see this indicated with the female Zero's- Kouya is willing to end her life if it means that she cannot serve under Yamato.
If the bond between fighter and Sacrifice is supposed to mean so much, then why would Soubi choose to keep living? The reason was, of course, that Seimei gave Soubi an order; an order not to be disobeyed for any reason. After all, Seimei's orders were absolute, his word was Soubi's law and this is indicative of that Total Power Exchange aspect.
This means that no matter what Soubi wanted, he had no choice but to follow this order. After all, we see clearly the hold that Seimei has on Soubi in volume nine.
He had just begged Ritsuka not to discard him like every other person in his life had and yet in the next moment, he's leaving Ritsuka because Seimei commanded him to.
Seimei's order, to be by Ritsuka's side, was to be carried out whether Soubi wanted to be there or not. This action, and his action of staying by Ritsuka's side is not determined by his own desire or will. His actions, his words and his motives are all a result of his order. Let me repeat this; Soubi cannot disobey that order. Soubi is NOT sexually attracted to Ritsuka, and never expresses that he holds a sexual attraction to him; Quite the opposite in fact.
The conversation that may seem to contradict this sentiment is when Ritsuka ask Soubi if he intends to take his ears. I won't get a hard on with a child like you for a partner, you know.
This is further proven when Soubi cuts back on the physical aspects of their relationship, as a bond between them has begun to form enough to make do for the time being and can begin to grow on its own.
Soubi is not as physically forward with Ritsuka because he wants to be or out of any sexual desire for him. He is so physically forward with Ritsuka because it is a means to an objective that is an extension of his original order. Their relationship is not sexual, nor is it romantic.
It is the relationship between Sacrifice and Fighter, Dominant and Submissive. It is about Total Power Exchange and Ritsuka's journey in accepting his role as a Sacrifice Dominant as well as learning how to accept that power.
Again, let me remind you that you cannot ignore the rules of this canonverse to justify something you don't agree with. For instance- Murder is a horrendous act, and yet in a setting such as The Hunger Games, it becomes necessary for survival.
Now, the next argument on the list is that Soubi's feelings towards Ritsuka are not just confined to the orders given, because Soubi has specifically told us that although he was ordered to be Ritsuka's side, he had come to love him on his own. Therefore, this points to him being a pedophile, right? There are actually four types of love: Each love shared between two people is unique based on the persons and other factors involved; they may fall into these four generalized categories, but are not required to fit precisely with each part of the given definition.
Although you may not like someone, you decide to love them just as a human being. This kind of love is all about sacrifice as well as giving and expecting nothing in return. The translation of the word agape is love in the verb — form: It is a committed and chosen love. Phileo The phileo love refers to an affectionate, warm and tender platonic love. It makes you desire friendship with someone.
