i have, i actually have it in my playlist( i LOVE Daughter ) but i never heard it with any character in mind,
i just listned to it and yes! you can see the shima and izumo parallel, more in izumo’s perspective, sometimes in Shima’s.
My favorite part of the song is:
' 'Cause this is torturous electricity
between both of us and this is
Dangerous ‘cause i want you so much
but i hate your guts
i hate you ‘
shipper heart or not, we know that izumo loves shima (more or less then the others, who knows?) but we also know with everything he did recently, she feels betrayed and basically hates him
thanks for the recommendation anon!
Who is Shima Renzou? And what does he really want?
I just really think there is more to Shima than just being the bad guy, but i can’t explain it. im not good with words. I believe there is something in his expression and the way Kato Kazue creates certain panels that leave this impression on me.
No problemo, mangapanda has it

Okay, I know I already reblogged this wonderful edit, but I wanted to add my own comment to it so I’m doing it again. xD
First, I just wanted to say that this is one of the most beautifully drawn scenes in the manga, and I’m not just talking about style here. The level of precision, care, and attention to detail that Kazue used is just through the roof, even compared to most of her other work. I don’t know if this had anything to do with the later-than-usual release date, but either way it was worth the wait.
So besides the fact that this scene was one of the most beautifully drawn scenes of the entire manga, it was also one of the most powerful. Now, I know that there are many scenes in this manga that leave impressions on us as readers, especially the heart-wrenching ones. This scene is quite emotional as well, but there is just something about it that strikes a separate cord with me.
I definitely feel the emotional and physical pain that Izumo is feeling right now, but that comes mainly from the first panel. But there’s something more. Something that really kind of just…hit me…when I saw Rin’s panel. I don’t know if it was just me or not, but I kind of sucked in a breath and was really taken aback for reasons unknown.
I think that…when you add in Rin’s panel it becomes something a bit more than just…sad. I think it might have to do with the way Rin and Izumo were paralleled this chaper. Their stories/scenes were being juxtaposed, and this is where their paths converged—not only physically, but also mentally. We’ve got Izumo realizing her feelings for those around her and finally asking for help. She’s completely broken down with tears streaming down her face. Then we’ve got Rin, who only seconds before was having an internal battle on what was “right”, realizing what he should do and making his decision on account of Izumo (subconsciously or consciously).
I also think it’s important to note that in the original chapter, these two panels would be side-by-side (they’re both at the top of their pages—Izumo on the right and Rin on the left). This really just reinforces the parallel and the aesthetic affect it has (similar to seeing them directly next to each other in this post).
I could honestly keep going about analyzing this scene but I feel like I’ve written enough already, lol. Anyway, yeah, this scene gave me a lot of feelings and it was just really beautiful. Definitely one of the top moments of the whole manga for me. It really stands out as something special.
