can we please talk about how Fai protects Kurogane and Tomoyo in this scene?
He’s changed so much in such a short time. He won’t throw his life away, but he will not hesitate to protect something precious to him. I think he feels like he owes Kurogane, but it’s more than that.
Kurogane immediately goes to protect Tomoyo because that’s his duty and she’s very important to him. Also, he knows that Fai, Syaoran and Souma are perfectly capable of protecting themselves and Amaterasu and Sakura. But Fai moves to protect Kurogane and Tomoyo, the two people he owes the most to. Kurogane who was always important, even when it wasn’t really in a good way. Now he’s the first on his mind, especially since he cut off his own arm to save him, and his fighting power is kinda down.
The determination in his eyes is completely new. Before, even in dangerous situations he would still be fighting with a goofy smile on his face. But he has changed so much since then.
