What Is Momo Ayase and Okarun’s Relationship in Dandadan?
Momo and her peculiar schoolmate, aptly named Okarun become friends.
The ground for their unique friendship lies in the unspoken, a name that dares not be uttered aloud.
As Momo, a firm believer in spirits, crosses paths with Okarun, the UFO enthusiast, the stage gets set for a delightful clash of beliefs.
Apart from Kei and Miko being Momo’s closest friends at school, Okarun holds the position of her closest male friend both within and outside the school setting.
They provide mutual support in navigating paranormal challenges as they team up to find Okarun’s lost item.
Momo is quite protective of Okarun. In fact, the first time they met, she came forward to save him from getting bullied by a few of his classmates.
Despite wanting to sever ties after the kind gesture, she unexpectedly found herself engaged in a spirited debate with Okarun about the existence of aliens and spirits.
However, they become good friends and Momo stays connected to Okarun, viewing him as her sole confidant at school for all things paranormal.
But their friendship takes a hit when a misunderstanding results in a strain between them.
Even in class, Momo persisted in denying to her classmates that Okarun was her boyfriend.
She was too irritated to talk to him after he came to her seeking help regarding an emergency. But eventually, they forgive each other and resume their friendship.
As a friend, Momo is deeply concerned about Okarun.
Amid their battle against the Evil Eye and the Tsuchinoko, she assured Okarun that she would return to save him.
So, the lingering question is, does the friendship between Momo and Okarun evolve into something more profound? Let's delve a bit deeper to find out.
