Headscratchers: Gravitation

  • Okay, I have a real problem with how Shuichi's gang-rape was handled in the long-run. It was obviously introduced to add to the drama and maybe in a way for Yuki to connect to Shuichi as the same thing had happened to Yuki. But I thought it was completely unrealistic for Shuichi to go about his life like normal and have no long-term trauma over it. Meanwhile, Yuki had basically a personality transplant after his own horrible experience. Then the mangaka herself seems to forget that Shuichi was raped in later volumes as it's repeatedly emphasized to Shuichi by numerous characters and including himself that he would never understand Yuki. Consider they were both victims of gang-rape I don't know any other person other than Shuichi who might understand what Yuki is feeling! So what was the point of even introducing such a plotline if it was only unrealistically short-term and it's never brought up again, whereas Yuki's own trauma—which took place longer before Shuichi's—remains front and center of the major story-lines?
