>>229431904>Reincarnation where both main characters are struggling with the demons of their previous lives.
To be fair Arthur was pretty over what happened in his previous life. He didn't care about it until those demons literally came back to hunt him and actively ruined what he had in this world.>They then go on a journey where they're protected by an adult figure that's in their party
Not really. Arthur went on a journey with that one girl, but that's nowhere near the same >They both have trouble finding emotional connections with people due to trauma from previous lives.
Not really, Arthur wasn't really in denial over his feelings for Tess. It was mostly her constantly fucking things up and alienating him. Like her pretending she doesn't know him when they first met in school, keeping it hidden like she is ashamed of him, and even having that boytoy follow her around, allowing him to antagonize Arthur without even telling him to fuck off and that Arthur is more important to her. Them she just fucked off and joined the army, and even after meeting him again, she did the same thing pretending she doesn't know him.>Mc gains popularity among women while leading them on a bit
Being popular with women is not exactly unique and Arthur didn't lead them at all.
They are similar sure, but not worth arguing over
P.S Remembering how Tess kept treating the dude, gets me even more mad with her
