THIS THREAD HAS A LOT OF SPOILERS INCLUDED SINCE IT REVOLVES AROUND THE LATEST CHAPTERS/STORY! IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A SPOILER-FREE DISCUSSION THREAD, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU.Here's the Topic where you can Discuss and post Theories about Possible Relations between Characters!Summary of all the mentioned "Possible relations":
- Mr. Akai and Mrs. Hondou being siblings
- Kuroda and Gin being Father and son
- Mary and Mrs. Hondou being sisters
- Wakasa Rumi and Scotch being related
So I've had this theory, or idea, for quite some time now and really wanted to discuss the possibility of this theory being...a possibility. This a an idea I have had way back, and some of you might have read about it before, but I to wanted firmly discuss it in this topic.
I want to discuss the possibility of Akai's father and hidemi's mother being related, or simply put, being siblings. [NOTE: This idea is solely based on the fact that shuukichi Haneda is the middle brother!]Here's what I wrote a long time ago:viewtopic.php?p=813178#p813178
In terms of looks, there are a lot of similarities between the two families(the Akai and the Hondou). to be more specific, I'll divide the characteristics heritage of the the kids in the families:Mrs. Akai
(if mystery girl is the mother)
Sera's eyes and eyebags
Akai's eyes and eyebagsMr. Akai
Shuukichi's face(overall look)
Shuukichi's hair colour(Possibly)
Sera's hair colour(Possibly)
Akai's Hair colour(Possibly)
Akai's forelock(Possibly)Mrs. Hondou
Hidemi's face(overall look)
Hidemi's hair colour(Possibly, if her mother is white-haired because of old-age in the manga)
Eisuke's hair colour(Possibly)Mr. Ethan Hondou
Hidemi's and Eisuke's hair colour(if not from their mother)
What seems quite interesting to me is that hidemi and akai look quite alike! almost like a female version of him. This is something even Gosho highlighted during Clash of Red and Black, when Akai registrated her into the hospital as his sister, meaning they looked somewhat similar at the very least to make sense. What also is something to note is that shuukichi almost looks like an adult version of eisuke. where as they both wear glasses, act a bit childish, have very similar eyes, and also notable hair sticking out in front of their ears. One can wonder if hidemi and shuukichi were intentionally designed to look like Akai and eisuke(In that specific order because akai was introduced before hidemi, just like eisuke being introduced before shuuikichi).....or not...
Which is why I wanted to discuss the validity of this idea being simply possible!
A very estimated look on how akai's father could look like(which is solely made to present my point and not something to be taken as a fact): (OUTDATED)
Is hidemi aware, or have an idea, of such relations with the Akai family or has she simply never heard of her mother's maiden name?
Is it possible for her to have never heard of her mother's surname(that could be Akai) because of the fact that she was busy in Osaka and later in the US studying?
