Why would you go so far for the main character? You should
experience youth too!
The time fixed for the beginning of their Northern tour was now fast approaching; and a fortnight only was wanting of it, when a letter arrived from Mrs. Gardiner, which at once delayed its commencement and curtailed its extent. Mr. Gardiner would be prevented by business from setting out till a fortnight later in July, and must be in London again within a month; and as that left too short a period for them to go so far, and see so much as they had proposed, or at least to see it with the leisure and comfort they had built on, they were obliged to give up the Lakes, and substitute a more contracted tour; and, according to the present plan, were to go no farther northward than Derbyshire. In that county, there was enough to be seen to occupy the chief of their three weeks; and to Mrs. Gardiner it had a peculiarly strong attraction. The town where she had formerly passed some years of her life, and where they were now to spend a few days, was probably as great an object of her curiosity, as all the celebrated beauties of Matlock, Chatsworth, Dovedale, or the Peak.
Elizabeth was excessively disappointed; she had set her heart on seeing the Lakes; and still thought there might have been time enough. But it was her business to be satisfied — and certainly her temper to be happy; and all was soon right again.

So. IDK if I’m just slow or anything, but it was only last night that it struck me right out of the blue that the two people most important to Tsukishima Kei’s character development are parallels to each other.
Both couldn’t make it as regulars for Karasuno and tried to make up for their lack of talent through hard work and Tsukki bore witness to both of their efforts.
But where Akiteru sparked a low in Tsukki’s attitude towards volleyball, Yamaguchi sparked the beginnings of a high. And you know how us Tsukkiyama fans keep harping on the fact that Yamaguchi stayed by Tsukki’s side through the years through thick and thin? In vivid contrast, Akiteru, who was depicted as THE constant in Tsukki’s life in his childhood, left Tsukki when he moved for college.
Where Akiteru failed, Yamaguchi is beginning to succeed and he found his own unique way to make it onto the court. His first point for the team in c119 (probably would have) shattered Tsukki’s belief that hardwork and passion could only come to naught - a belief that came into being because of what happened to Akiteru.
So yeah… Pardon me to go lie down and drown in my feels for a bit… Furudate-sensei, idk if you did it on purpose or not but either way, this was a stroke of genius ; v ;
