SpoilerI'm one of the few people that loves him His character is endearing. I like when he goes dragon ball z mode and wants to monopolize the mound. And his fast pitching is effective and beautiful to watch. And he's a perfect rival. There are too many baseball manga to count staring pitchers as the main character and like 90% have a fastball. I think the OPness of Furuya makes Sawamura's uniqueness shine more. The story becomes much more compelling because Sawa-chan has to struggle so hard to stand out. A lot of sports manga SAY how disadvantaged the mc is and yet they overcome opponents and rivals so easily, always make the starting lineup, etc. Sawamura is a character I can really relate to because of Furuya. I read the manga on mangago and the comments section is always full of people hating on Furuya XD. I have a theory that it's because they empathize too much with the characters they read and then don't like feeling like they're losing. They don't actually want an underdog story. They want to be labelled as a underdog, but really WIN IT ALL jsut my crazy ramblings that don't really have anything to do with your discussion XD
I honestly don't get those people tbh, in the last few chapters/episodes I looooove seeing Eijun's/Furuya's relationship that's build on rivalry from both sides (at first it was mostly Eijun) Him being an underdog? I'm fine with it! But yes obviously it does hurt haha, however that's part of it isnt it? The writing is in such a way you just can't NOT feel bad for Eijun at some points. Moreso just like kia said when the Furuya agenda was being pushed harder than usual. anywaysssss
spoiler for kia too
he became Ace anyway HAHAHA WE HAPPY PEOPLE. I like the fact that furuya gets to play the games too still, starting it while he's exactly bad at that.. Though im not sure how the match vs sousei is gonna play out... hmm..
