Was anyone else surprised by the Tobari/Miharu mentor dynamic, and by that I mean the lack there of? At the beginning, I was really expecting a strong dynamic between Tobari and Miharu. Tobari seemed to be set on breaking through Miharu's indifference, and Miharu seemed to suffer Tobari better than a lot of others. So I was really surprised how fast Miharu dropped him, making his goal to do the one thing Tobari told him never to do, and gallivanting into the enemy camp.

And even though Miharu was technically threatened to use the shinra banshou (on Tobari's and the others lives), that fact seemed to leave him the moment he decided to help Yoite, so it was almost irrelevant. So it can't even be said that he dropped Tobari to save his life, he just did.

And even when he defected back to Tobari's side, Miharu spent much more time with Yukimi. I was just really surprised by the lack of the Tobari/Miharu dynamic.

I think he would, actually, or at least have the idea hanging over his head, because there’s also the influence of his ‘promise’ with his mother, which seems to have had the effect of making him feel like (in general, but shaped for the preservation of the shinrabanshou) he doesn’t quite have the right to exert any individual influence on his surroundings at all. Tobari probably strengthened these ideas, but I think they would have had a hold on him for a very long time. The idea that his existence could have come from the shinrabanshou, and is now bound to it, while his mother thinks of it as something which needs to be suppressed and detached from the world around it, and people around him are fighting and dying over it – I think even if Tobari hadn’t been so strongly against its use, Miharu would have been shaken by finding out about his death and resurrection. Possibly that’s another reason for his resonance with Yoite, who had also had the idea that what gave him life was ‘wrong’ projected to him, which may be why his specific request seemed so compelling.
I do agree with everything else, though, especially that Tobari was very influenced by his own guilt in his attitude to Miharu.
