Betrayal is one of those things that hurts one person, but benefits another. It’s something you’re bound to go through in life, even if you’re not the one doing it or provoking the action.

Sometimes people betray for cowardly reasons, sometimes justified if extreme (logically).

This post will share some perspectives about betrayal in different lights, from a wide set of characters in various anime shows.
