Tsuzuki's very existence is concentrated moe. When I first read his series it was hard not to compare other characters to him as though he was the archetype of tired, sad, pacifist immortal they were trying to meet. As I got older I began to take his emotional state more seriously, and his unresolved character arc and the unfinished mysteries in his story have kept a hold on me all these years.
I want desperately for Tsuzuki to have the happy ending he may never find in canon. I also have long held suspicions about his family that the author may never give answers to. Being able to reach out to him personally is a fantasy that might cover both.
Unlike most of his fans I don't believe shipping him with other characters romantically is a viable option. Throughout the series we're given reasons why they don't think of him romantically, and in my opinion it would ruin the found family the Summons Department has formed. I don't think romance necessarily is the answer to his self hatred, but if nothing else I want to shout at him that he is loved and he has value to me if not many, many other people he has touched through his actions.
Tsuzuki and I are about as sexually oblivious as each other, but I am 100% attracted to centre partings and perk up at characters that remind me of his personality or looks. This obsession is a form of love even when there's days I can't ship it.
