There are two things that really stood out to me from this anime. [Spoilers, kinda]
1. Fear is a serious motivator
It's so very true. In my own life I can totally see it. When I get very angry, or spiteful, or defensive it's because I'm fearful. I'll make it super personal for a sec. I'm going through something intense at work right now and my first reaction was to become angry. Why? When I sat down to think about it (and over analyze it) I found that it was because I was afraid. I was worried that the things I'd worked hard to implement and create would be forgotten and cast aside. I didn't want to be hurt and I wanted to protect my pride so out of fear I became angry. It's for sure something I'm working on so I'm glad this was brought up! It's not just in my life, though. I see it a lot, especially being a social worker. Children (and adults) lash out and attack each other because they're afraid of losing their spot in the group or looking bad in front of others. Have you ever felt that way?
Arita Mayu was insane, but at the end she made a really good point:
2. If you're happy with your choice other people's opinions don't matter
