Y'all jump to "this and that are canon" conclusion too quickly 🙃 The interview DOES NOT confirm anything abt the characters' sexuality, nor any romantic relationship. Pls read the sentences again carefully (I've tried to arrange my words to avoid mis-assumptions like this 😩)
E.g. the word "relationship" itself refers to how the relation between A and B are in general. So I have to use an adjective to describe how it is like. Unless it's written as "A and B are in a relationship", then that gives a romantic meaning. But no I didn't write it like that
The same goes to the words "attracted" and "feelings". It doesnt always mean in a romantic way. This should be clear enough as I wrote "attracted to ...'s (noun)", you cant immediately judge that it means attracted to the person itself, but might be abt what the person possess.
That being said, pls let me know if there are anything incorrect, or if there are some parts that require more explanation. And I'd be glad to share the original JP words used in the article if you want to look it up yourself.
Neither English nor Japanese are my native language, but I always research and ask for confirmation (to native speakers and my language teacher) when dealing with ambiguous words.
Last but not least, just keep in mind that any Japanese media that do not fall into the category of specific audience-oriented genre rarely confirms the canonicity. And looking at the situation of the industry now, I don't think you can expect otherwise in the near future.
I'm not saying that it cannot change, I just think it needs time. And yeah someone/something should be brave and big enough to be the breakthrough to start the change...

I don't wanna sound pessimistic, but let's just consider it realistically 🤣

SK∞ x Animate Cafe Ikebukuro
17th Feb - 15th March 2021 (throwback)

The first time I went, I ordered Reki's drink and got Langa for the random coaster! 😭😭 I think I've used my entire life's luck there...
Reki's drink was lemon squash. It was quite sour as far as I remember, but very refreshing~ ☀️

Unfortunately bc of COVID, only take-outs were allowed. However, we could still enter for a short while to take pics of the decorations!
The chibi cut outs! We can ask the staff to lend us some of the ones we want to take pics with~

Also, it was Miya's birthday when I went, so they put a framed picture of him in the middle 😆
