The rap battle that we were all waiting for... The supreme showdown between fujoshi (yaoi enthusiasts)... It all starts here!
The death of your favorite character is a real tragedy for every decent otaku. When your favorite character dies, it's nearly impossible to get out of bed, to eat and, in general, to continue living your everyday life like nothing happened.
Of course, we understand that sometimes a character's death is necessary for the flow of the story. But we still can't get over it.
What better way to overcome such anguish than to create some neat rhymes that go with a super sick beat?
Fujoshi no Tsudui-san author Tsudui decided that, indeed, that's the best way to psychologically prepare for the death of your favorite character.
Just the other day, a certain character from a popular anime died an honorable death. However, that character was also one of Tsudui's favorites! She was basically forced to write a rap song in his memory. MC Tsudui's latest single is called Ayashi no Shi, or "My Darling's Death".
On the other side, Fujoshi Shacho author Kaerytai also declared that she's ready to blast some rhymes covering the same theme. Her cry for attention was heard somewhere, because one of her favorite characters also happened to die recently.
So here we are, opening the first rap battle ever between two major fujoshi representatives!! What kind of punch lines should we expect?
First contestant: MC Tsudui "Ayashi no Shi - Sequel"
on my own" is full of personality, as the use of slang suggests.
The punchline is, without any doubts, "Wikipedia says you're dead and it's too damn hard". Instead of just saying her favorite character is dead, she brings Wikipedia into the equation.
We are sure that many other fujoshi girls shed a tear while reading such emotional lyrics.
"Good morning - Let's live / I need some nutrition". Don't forget to nurture your body in order to live on - you're also gonna have to get your favorite character's share of nutrients.
Second contestant: MC Kaerytai "Ayashi ga Shinda?"
However, MC Kaerytai is a worthy adversary - especially from their otaku story point of view. What will her response be?
It must be the influence of Fujoshi Shacho, the fujoshi president, who can speak Latin and Latin languages fluently. High-spec!
The intelligence transpiring through this rap is indisputable. However, MC Kaerytai's combative spirit fighting her darling's death is what makes these lyrics truly unique. Amazing.
We can safely say that tennis player Shuzo Matsuoka is issuing a manifesto inside MC Kaerytai's heart.
About our darling's death...
MC Tsudui is ready to wait three years before forgetting her darling, while MC Kaerytai states that she can bring him back to life through microtransactions. These two fujoshi girls apparently deal with sorrow in very different ways. Just like there is an infinite variety of personal inclinations and preferences, there are uncountable ways to deal with our darling's death.
