Who's your favorite handler, and do you have reasons? OK, I've not seen Il Teatrino yet, and I've only read the manga up to the introduction of Petruschka, but this question is from the FB GG group.
For myself my favorite is obviously Giuse, he's so kind to Henrietta. Additionally, I'm not totally unfavourable to Jean; in other words I don't think Jean is the handler. Because, Jean is often cruel and unkind to Rico but Jean is never indifferent to Rico. Anyone else.
I agree with you on the Jean and Rico relationship, I love seeing how Jean is so professional when it comes to working with Rico. And of course, the Guise-Henrietta Fratello pair is one of my favourites.
I kind of like the Hilshire-Triela Fratello because it seems more of the father-daughter relationship, except Hilshire is inexperienced.
But if you want to talk about favourites, at present is the Marco-Angelica Fratello because I'm currently crazy about Angelica XD
Without doubt Jose; but I too like the relationship between Victor and Triela. It's kinda cute how he's in times clueless of how to handle her, and how Triela herself almost makes a fool out of him (though not intentionally) in certain situations where Victor is having a hard time deciding how to respond to her.
Triela is very outspoken and forward, consider how she shepherds Henrietta to ask Giuse to spend Christmas with her, is almost all situatiions including how she is with Hillshire. Each fratello is unique and very well developed.
OTOH, Lauro was a complete and total shit with Elsa.
Lauro to Elsa de Sica, OMG could he have been more of shit. Triela is sassy, that's what I would call her, and we get to hear alot of her inner dialogue about her relationship with Hillshire. It took reading the manga for me to learn that Jean and Giuse were RL brothers.
Hillshire-Triela. They have the healthiest relationship imo. They are like equal partners now and this makes them different from Giuse-Henrietta or Jean-Rico. Plus they get some of the cutests moments in the manga.
