>>170255107>But boys can't pilot with boys!
But you have to put things into context dude.
When Mitsuru said that he wanted to pilot the Franxx with Hiro he was younger than 9 years old. Do you think the old geezers tell kids that young about the whole male-female couple for piloting the Franxxs ?
Mitsuro has always looked up to Hiro, in this he's no different from Strawberry girl. But he has a problem, he's weak, has a lot of health problems and survived an almost certain death on the operation table. Then all of a sudden Hiro forgets his promise and Mitsuo can't take it anymore and goes full hateman on Hiro. Until the present day.
Mitsuo isn't gay, Ikuno is the only gay one. In fact she is the only one to ask for pistil to pistil piloting. If Mitsuo was gay why didn't he ask for stamen to stamen piloting ?
