The newest episode of Darling in the Franxx aired yesterday and the community is officially done with Ichigo.
Following loads of melodrama and character development, fans were ready to see Hiro and Zero Two’s relationship go to the next level in episode 14. No one predicted that Ichigo would set off a chain of events that would ruin expectations.
Without spoiling much, it’s been obvious that Ichigo has been searching for an opportunity to get with Hiro, who she’s been crushing on since childhood. After some key revelations from the upper chain of command and Zero Two’s abuse, Ichigo took it upon herself to “save” Hiro. Instead, she broke everything.
Fans on social media haven’t been taking the events and have condemned Ichigo’s actions. Be warned, the following posts include spoilers:
Darling in the FranXX Episode 14 in a nutshell:

Just watched Darling in the Franxx episode 14. Truly the villain of this anime is Ichigo. Griffith really did nothing wrong, compared to her of course. pic.twitter.com/tNRNXTwBK5

If you defend Ichigo from Darling In the Franxx after what just happened I hope your house is burned down, you get fired and your GPA turns to shit. She’s a manipulating slut who can’t keep her lips off of Hiro she’s actually greedy and I hope she dies.
