The Devil is in the Details, a gintama fanfic | FanFiction
Kagura and Okita's relationship dynamic has always been fascinating to me, . nonchalance, he somehow wore her down and won her trust. Fandom: Gintama. Relationship: Kagura/Okita Sougo. Characters: . for nothing and the second time to crush the last pieces of her trust in him. Okita and Kagura's childhoods were pretty similar. Both were That I think, is an important dynamic of their relationship later on and is an interesting aspect. . 2) Kagura's trust and belief in Okita was clearly depicted. At the.
Or worse, he would realize from her letters, that the Kagura he had loved was gone. That the letters he received were written by a merciless Yato fighter, succumbed by her bloodlust. She would write and tell him that she had found someone else. She will find someone else. The sun casted its last weak rays on them before completely disappearing behind the horizon. The sky was full of peculiar, puffy clouds that were slowly traveling towards the sea.
The setting sun colored them slowly from blazing oranges and reds into looming purples. Kagura swiveled around with a surprised look on her face. Okita was pointing at a large, strangely shaped cloud that was floating alone, separated from the others. Her eyes were innocent and fragile, and Okita got a sudden feeling that she was a butterfly that could be crashed by even the slightest force. The words stuck in his throat. It was a part in him that he had protected carefully all these years.
And now he was going to take the risk. She stared at him, waiting for him to continue and so Okita continued. And travel thousands and thousands of miles, light-years.
To fight all kinds of crazy aliens. He just watched and waited for a reaction. If you just let me come. Your life… Your life, everything here. For everything that has happened. Saying the words aloud, finally apologizing, felt good. I want to help you. I want to travel with you. If you need protection, I mean. To be there for you. He had finally realized what it was. To protect you from yourself. You are a Yato and there is nothing wrong with that.
I want to be there so that you will never forget who you are. I want to be there to remind you that you can always come back to Earth. He felt naked, exposed. For the first time in his life he had willingly put his life on the line. He had taken the risk and told her everything. It was good but… The unbearable feeling of vulnerability that followed was killing him from the inside.
Maybe Kagura had no wish to go with him and now, with all this talk, the situation had turned uncomfortable and embarrassing. Even if Kagura had feelings for him, neglecting them would be just rational.
He had hurt her too much. A very soft touch. Okita opened his eyes. Kagura was close, closer than before. Her cheeks and eyes wet with tears, hair stuck on her skin, teeth clenched tightly together. Kagura grabbed him from the front of his jacket and burrowed her head into his chest.

He swallowed, pressed his eyes tightly shut, and let go. She was leaning on him, relying on him, trusting him. The warmness and tingling spread around his body. She trusted him and he would show that he was worth the trust. Okita threw his hands around her and pressed her tightly against him. He had been so close to drowning but now he had the lifebelt in his hands and he was never going to let it go. He had taken the risk and only time would show what would happen, but at this very moment, the risk felt worth taking.
The first stars lit up in the evening sky. To Okita, they looked nothing like before. Kagura was in the middle of the group, surrounded by everyone and drowned in hugs and wishes of good luck. Despite everything that had happened, Kagura was a good and kind person and people knew it. Umibozu was standing on the side of the group as well, alone and impossible to read. Maybe he was proud of his daughter, maybe he was afraid of what was going to happen, or maybe he was just confused by the many people who had showed up.
Whatever the case was, he had a stern expression on his face as he studied the situation.
But not everyone was here. Her protectiveness of Gin is also something that triggers her, and this unfortunately played out. This was pretty early on too. Young boys poke fun and bully the girl they really like to hide the fact that they like her.
To Kagura, he bullies her and provokes her even when unnecessary and this reminds her of childish behavior. Because their dynamic was reminiscent of a primary school boy-girl relationship, and Sorachi thought it was funny to put it in.
Then again we could choose to take it with a pinch of salt and dismiss it as comedy, but again, WHY did Sorachi write it like that if he had absolutely no intention to suggest something affectionate? At this point, I just wanna say that I think Okita might have a crush on Kagura. Frivolous matters aside, another critical aspect of their relationship is how they manage to work together and end up as one hell of a duo.
What I find interesting is also how the animators have decided to give them auras — red for Kagura and blue for Okita.
It was used twice even, again in the Beetle Hunting arc. Also, how Okita is willing to play with kids and beetles just to beat Kagura. Kagura then cries over her loss of Sadaharu no. Also, at the end of the episode, when Gin punishes the both of them, it really seemed like a father punishing two kids who were being immature and stupid. Their rivalry is unstoppable as we see that they destroy everything in the way of their competition, including their friends.
In other words, to uphold their pride. Almost always, they just bicker. They compete over everything, and along with it comes arguments as well, but notice that they just like to compete with each other because both of them are just super skilled.
Another interesting point is how Okita takes Kagura so seriously.
So far, I just wanna point out that Okita shows his true self to Kagura a lot. Perhaps not romantically, but definitely interested. But first we need to discuss the Yagyuu arc.
Something else this arc has shown is a sense of exclusivity between the two. No one else is allowed to beat her except for him. He even goes so far to prove that point by beating up Minamito. This scene can be interpreted in two ways: Like I mentioned, he probably has difficulty expressing that softer side of him so he constructs something.
Please also take note of the time when one of the Character Books described Okita as a hero who saved Kagura when she was in a pinch. If he truly hated or disliked her, he would not give two shits if others beat her up but no, he gets kinda possessive once someone else attacks her. Kinda reminds me of a boyfriend, but in a rival kind of way.
I think that says something for sure. But Kagura takes advantage of it all and hits both of them at once. I feel like Okita lets Kagura humiliate him sometimes, and he rarely lets others do so. How seriously the both of them take each other is depicted in the next scene when Kondou and Shipachi found Nishino and Okita, knocked out cold.
Their rivalry is so intense that even when Kondou and Shinpachi thought it was the work of a Yagyuu, it was already extreme.

Surprisingly for Shinpachi, it was just Kagura. But I think something that is noteworthy is how they seem to be totally in sync, also something the voice actors have pointed out. They then merge together and become a black ball. Like any normal person, Gintoki wanted this monstrosity of nature out of his house, much to the despair of his roommate.
It seemed like the perfect chance to get rid of the dog when the animal-loving alien Prince Hata tried to kidnap him to put him in his menagerie. Let me just say this first: He will beat the crap out of you if you take away his dessert, will always make cheeky quips, and will do anything for money. However, he cares about his comrades. In this instance, Gintoki sacrifices his comfort in his own home to get back Sadaharu from the prince, and allow Kagura to keep him in their abode.
Sadaharu serves as a family member to her, but Kagura does have living family. After all, Kagura only began working at Yorozuya in order to get enough money to get a ticket home. Her goal is right in front of her. However, Kagura finds that after spending so much time with Gintoki and their other teammate Shinpachi, she has in fact made a new family that is always there for her.
And, in the latest episode of Gintama, Kagura supposedly finds a boyfriend.
