  1. Some said yer best buddy is often yer best lover candidate. Since you both already know each other well, and knowing both good and bad pointsof each other. Well, just make sure you both are from different gender, or else you geh.

    The usual troupe is usually childhood friend, but they’re, in most case, not exactly “best buddy” character, and best buddy character often used as side character or possible heroine, sadly they often end in losing side in the most series. This one seems to going to trying to take on best buddy route. Let’s just hope it wont turn strange.
