I always say “morning” instead of “good morning”. If it were a good morning I’d still be in bed instead of talking to people.
The fantasy alley where Haru and Makoto found time for each other,
the imaginary line where they could make their different worlds meet
they found their alley in reality too…
In young children’s movies, romantic love is constructed as a special and incredibly powerful domain of life that is separate from same-gender friendship and other relationships. While same-gender friendships are fun or funny, heterosexual love is portrayed as powerful. For example, falling in love can break a spell (Beauty and the Beast), cause one to give up her identity (The Little Mermaid), be so special that it is off-limits even to a powerful genie (Aladdin's genie cannot make people fall in love), or lead children to disobey a parent (all of these and Pocahontas).

villains who switch sides due to personal convictions and not because they fell in love with a hero
villains who fall in love with a hero but refuse to switch sides due to personal convictions
villains who have feelings for heroes but aren’t willing to just ditch their life and everything they’ve worked for
sympathetic villains with goals and motivations other than heroic bonkybits
