The color yellow is canonically related to both Midousuji and Onoda.
For Midousuji, there’s a small reference in chap.152, when his background story is revealed. But for Onoda, yellow is the color that represents and is associated with him.
In Yowapeda each of the three main characters is associated with a color: for Imaizumi, it’s blue (related to his calm, cold personality), and for Naruko, it’s red (apart from his design, there’s also his fervent personality). It becomes rather obvious just by taking a look at their bicycles and the sports uniforms they usually wear. But for Onoda, it’s a little less apparent at first glance (even though his sports uniform follows the pattern, too): he’s related to the color yellow, a color commonly associated with happiness and optimism. In the second part of the manga, the new bicycle he gets from the Kanzaki siblings has a yellow frame; the anime, on the other hand, makes a statement of it by having him ride across a field of sunflowers in the first opening sequence.
As I mentioned above, for Midousuji the reference is mentioned but once, if I’m not wrong (I apologize if I’m missing any other reference here): in chap.152, he states he perceives happiness as though it were a color, yellow.
The rest would be a fandom interpretation of both characters, in my opinion. Yellow is symbolically used to represent happiness and warmth, among many others; in Asian countries, it’s also associated with virtue and nobility. All of this arguably matches Onoda’s character, and because of Midousuji’s mention of what happiness “feels like” for him -as a color-, I can see a connecting idea if we’re talking about pairing them together. I should add the Japanese fandom also relates this pairing to sunflowers: while these flowers have traditionally symbolize loyalty, wishfulness and love -they’re said to be the “happiest of flowers”-, another of their many meanings is yearning and longing, as they’re believed to follow the sun (there’s the Greek legend of Clytie). The latter meaning would then be the one associated with Midousuji (because of his past and, I speculate, the emotional alienation he seems to experience as a result of it).
Hope that helped ;) (And, yes, I was about to reply it could be a problem with your computer monitor instead, but… lame joke, I know.)
I’m starting to like this ship…
Shut up, it’s cute.
Drew some crocs! Love these spicies
An caïman, an alligator, a crocodile and a gharial. Was fun to give them different colors.
The fact that the fanart of them is so CUTE!!
Originally I pretty much shipped Onoda with anyone, but as I went through the MidoSaka tag on pixiv, well, I pretty much felt myself slipping down into Lizard hell shipping. How can they be so adorable together?? I don’t even know!
Besides that, I just love the idea of the two! I like to imagine that a creepy horror manga-esque character like Midousuji being blushy and not knowing how to act around Onoda, who is just such a loving happy-go-lucky puppy—it’s just too cute to resist!
how can anyone NOT ship these two from Arashi no yoru ni?
what a weenie
this accidentally turned into a comic
I don’t care who you are or what you believe in religion wise. You need to watch this video. It shows from the side of the bully and the person being bullied. I feel as if this should be on everyone’s blog to show you care.
This is the most powerful video I have ever seen. It needs to be displayed at every school shown to every student they need to see this!
going to try and get this to be shown at my school
Amazing message, I’m an atheist and I believe these things should be taught and shown everywhere. They showed the two sides very well and didn’t make it super cheesy
I want every one of my followers to watch this please. You need to.
