Natsuki still cold hearted?

Post by ShatteredHeart98 on Mon Oct 25, 2010 9:06 am

I'm really sorry if this topic has already been visited before... I was just wondering if you think Natsuki Kruger is as cold as she was in HiME as Kuga? We don't see a lot of her overall in Otome, but from what we do see she still seems to be the 'tough as nails' girl who doesn't like to show her weaknesses and seems like a strict leader. I know she tends to guide around Arika alot at the beginning and sometimes shows concern for her students, but is she just doing her job as Headmistress, or does she really have a soft spot for all of the girls of Garderobe?

One example I have of her seeming to be rather cold is when she makes Arika Nina's roommate and says that it's so the pair will compete against each other.

I think you're example is not her being cold. She sees Arika and Nina to be very much like Mai and her back in her coral days. She puts them together as roommates because she thinks that they will become friendly rivals and constantly challenge one another to do better.

So to me, this is very much the example of the headmistress giving "tough love", not being cold.

Remember when Arika, Juliet-Nao and the other Corals snuck into the forbidden library and found the resting place of their Otome predecessors? What Miss Maria stated about Otome having a responsibility to fight each other if some international war ever broke out. This belief was obviously drilled into Natsuki Kruger's head and she appears to firmly believe in it. Arika Yumemiya, the idealist, must of changed Kruger's views through her actions by the end of Zwei. Saving the planet TWICE. Keeping her promise that Otome can refuse to fight/kill each other and that everlasting peace is possible.

I see. Both of you make good points, thank you. I'm not very good at seeing a character's true personality, so for me deciding whether or not Natsuki was cold was actually affecting my fanfictions, so you've both really helped out, thanks.

Shizuru Fujino, I didn't see it way way before but it makes more sense now that she is just being tough and giving them the chance to show their true potential instead of being cold.
Rei Hino, you're also absolutely right. She would have had the same lecture when she was an Otome student, and I watched Zwei and Otome again in my free time and can see that Arika does change Kruger's mind and she even seems somewhat thankful for it at the end in her own way.

Thank you both for your answers. Hopefully this will help me write better fanfics in the future.

There may be more clues to Natsuki's behavior in the Mai-Otome drama cds if you track them down on You Tube. Overall yes, I firmly believe she feels differently about an Otome's duties after the incident with Nagi/Nina.

That's the idea! Good luck with your stories! ^_~

:D After much discussion months later, we can agree that Natsuki is more true to her position as an Otome. The one who can be examined in a negative light is Shizuru Viola, after someone brought up her sleeping with Tomoe, even though she claimed her heart belonged to Natsuki.
