“They all love other people having a tough time! I mean, who can listen to people going on and on about how happy they are? You can listen to them sobbing for hours though!”
-Berg Katze, Gatchaman Crowds, episode 12
People certainly are disgusting aren’t they? They go on and on about their children, marriages, university grades on social media constantly. It’s as if they’re rubbing how good they have it in our faces, taunting us.
Or at least, that’s what Berg Katze would say.
Hajime Ichinose, on the other hand, would find complete and utter joy in what others would have to share. Where Berg would declare such updates to be meaningless and self-centered, Hajime would delight in the fact that people had allowed her, and others, to be privy to their happiness.
Which would you choose? Are you a Hajime, or a Berg?
