Re: [Yuricon] Random Kashimashi thought (spoilerish)
- Yes, those cases are interesting, and it has been suggested that those with an Autism spectrum disorder frequently see faces not as a coherent whole, but as individual parts that do not relate to each other. This is why they have difficulty with interpreting nonverbal body language such as facial expressions. But to only have this problem with one sex?Okay, I have officially over-analyzed Kashimashi.

Not sure it's necessary, but here's some spoiler space
There are documented cases of people who just can't recognize faces
-- generally it's the result of brain damage, but.
They can recognize individual features ("That's a nose.") but can't
piece things together to recognize a face. Often they can get by
though various coping techniques, such as recognzing people by
hairstyle or voice.
Which amused me to think about, since boy-Hazumu had both a
distinctive hairstyle and distinctive voice . . .
