A friend of mine were talking and she made a very good point how, in this pairing particularly, Tenma is usually depicted as apprehensive about his own feelings and his partner’s advances. Sometimes it’s turned into a joke where he doesn’t seem to know what he wants and he’s like yes, no, maybe, I don’t know.

With that in mind, I drew Tenma going on the offensive, having already accepted his feelings, and going about it in a ridiculous way because he’s a ridiculous man that drops everything to chase after a murderous ex-patient.
