What's the most recent ship you've got into?

    Watched the Boruto series and the last few episodes of the first arc made me a real hardcore Boruto x Sumire shipper.

    I wasn't really into shipping in the Naruto series, mostly because the most ships felt forced and somehow hurted their characters, but this is different. Their interactions felt really natural, Boruto caring for her and her future, Sumire also caring for her class mates pretty much the whole time and her suple hints of liking Boruto quite much...and then the climax happened, with the last scene of the climax reminding heavily of "The Last" and that scene when Boruto thumbed up and her crying afterwards towards him felt so magical. It feels natural, it feels less forced and it especially feels like more realistic if Sumire developed a crush on him after he saved her (but knowing how Shonen anime work, it wouldn't suprise me). Not going to start how much of an awesome character she also is.

    Oh, yeah, they're cute! At first I wasn't getting much shipping-wise out of this show, and I try not to ship for shipping's sake... But Zack and Melissa have developed a good chemistry as the series has progressed. I like their teasing mannerisms.

    So, Bojack Horseman season 4 just came out. I'm 4 episodes in, and so far, I'm feeling Bojack and Diane more than I did before. Yeah, they can both be selfish (especially Bojack), and they hurt each other sometimes... Diane's certainly got more scruples than Bojack and works for the things she cares about... But even so, they feel like they're the same kind of person inside, emotionally. Bojack definitely doesn't like himself, and I get the impression that Diane doesn't like herself much, either. At least, she learns that she's not the person she wanted to be and thought she was. But they obviously care about each other, and it seems like... they're the only ones who really get each other. It's like, who's the one person you want to talk to when everything is just falling apart? Who would you really want to be with if the world was ending? Now, is it going to happen? Well, I'm pretty sure something's going to happen. I don't know if it can work out at this point, because it'd be messy. Plus, while they could be really good for each other, they could also be bad for each other, and I could see it going either way. While I don't see this series concluding on a total downer, the ending's not gonna be all sunshine and rainbows, either. But... No matter how it goes, I feel a real sense of connection there.

    I also like the chemistry between Princess Caroline and Ralph, but judging from the blurbs from upcoming episodes, yeah, shouldn't get too invested there.

    I'm finding Priest Seto x Kisara from Yugioh: Duel Monsters adorable lately as Im rewatching scenes from the series. I also like Kaiba x Kisara as well.

    Alto and Marie from Stella Glow. Still salty she didn’t get an ending considering she pretty much had confirmed feelings for him. Seriously though they have the most adorable interactions in the game. (Also anyone who’s never played this game, play it! It’s amazing!)

    After playing Puyo Puyo Tetris recently, my first Puyo game, I learned that I really like these characters, so I really wanted to ship some of them cuz I just wanted to.

    Ringo Andou X Tee- This is the ship the game pushes towards, and it's believable and cute. I just really like it and want to see more of it.

    Rulue X Dark Prince/Satan- This is canonically one-sided, as Rulue has a crush on Satan (and he has a crush on another character, the former main character of the series, Arle Nadja). I can see these two happening, even if maybe he shows some feelings to her but still doesn't wanna give up pursuing Arle.

    Schezo Wegey X Amitie- This is more low-key, I don't normally ship characters that don't have much interaction with each other or even for the hell of it, and I kinda still don't. Schezo and Amitie are a couple of a my favorite characters in the game. Amitie is the sweetest character in the entire cast and Schezo is the main comic relief. Imagine a character who's main gag is that they have they have terrible wording so they say things as if he wants to have sex with someone. It's hilarious. Anyway, I'd probably buy these two as a ship if I see some good fics about it, they don't seem that bad of a pairing.

    shoz999 IT WAS ME! SETETH!

    It's not really a ship I've gotten into but it's one I kind of have a hunch I think is going to be canon in One Piece and that is Luffy X Robin. Okay Okay lol, just hear me out. A lot of people like to ship Luffy with people like Nami out of age-wise or Hancock because she has just the biggest crush on him right. However, ever since I saw who Gol D. Roger's wife was, who looked like a serious woman, I can't help but imagine if Robin would be Gol D. Roger's wife counterpart. For those who don't know Gol D. Roger's history and even personality and character is very similar to Luffy's. Another thing is that Robin is one of the few people who seems to enjoy Luffy's antics albeit subtlety and if you read the manga or watched the anime, Luffy means a lot to Robin after what happened in the Enies Lobby Arc. Personally I wouldn't care that much if Oda debunked it but another reason has to do with the fact that Oda can blow people's minds, he doesn't really make things seem obvious in the end and at the same time it does make sense to an extant. This is all just a hunch in the end but he just seems like the kind of person who wouldn't make a Luffy shipping with Nami or Hancock canon because it just seems way too obvious.

    The most recent one I’ve gotten into is Edward Elric & Winry Rockbell from FullMetal Alchemist. This is a canon shop, they did get together in the end. Winry was shown to have feelings for Edward early on and it took a while for Edward to return her feelings but they got married and were shown to have children at the end of the series.

    Note: I am referring to Brotherhood. I haven’t watched the original series made in 03 but I do plan on it

    I have two, actually. They are Edward Elric & Winry Rockbell and Ling Yao & Lan Fan from FullMetal Alchemist: Brotherhood.

    Edward and Winry, along Alphonse, are all childhood friends. Winry also happens to be his automail mechanic. All throughout Brotherhood, we saw that Winry had developed feelings for Edward, which he returned at the end at the series. The epilogue in the final episode shows that Ed and Winry got married and had two children.

    Ling and Lan Fan is another FMA pairing that I can’t help but love. While it was never confirmed that they got together in the series, I strongly believe they did. Lan Fan and her grandfather, Fu, were Ling’s bodyguards since he is the Prince of Xing. You could see how devoted she was to Ling all through the series, she even cut off her arm to prevent the homunculus from tracking him. What else is there to say?

  11. Sooo, it’s been four months (nearly five) since I first played Akiba’s Beat, and around 2-3 months since I finished my New Game+ run. Something which I find pretty interesting about Beat is that none of the main characters canonically get together whatsoever, but there is a lot of tease for a good few ships across the board. Asahi gets tease with a few people in the game, but mainly Mizuki. Going into Beat, I was expecting I’d end up either shipping Mizuki and Asahi or they’d pull a Saki x Asahi out of nowhere. Neither of those happened and now I ship Asahi with my favourite character, Yamato, instead.

    I shipped this ship a little during my first playthrough, but I didn’t realise how genuinely cute it was until I replayed. Out of every character in the game, the only characters who stick with Asahi from near the beginning until the very end are Riyu, Yamato and Moé - Riyu and Moé have a much more platonic relationship with Asahi (Riyu being pretty young and Moé not showing any romantic signs whatsoever), but ohhh my god, Yamato’s all but confirmed to be crushing on him. When Yamato first meets the party he’s stubborn, lies about himself constantly and is incredibly blunt. He hates mentioning his interests and personal life to other people because he thinks they won’t take him seriously if they do, and puts on an attitude to reflect that. However, as the story goes on, he becomes more open about his emotions and interests, and despite some of his stupid statements is an incredibly valuable member of the team. Who helps him get there? Canonically, Asahi. Playing through his Sub-Event quest (required for the True Ending) is what reveals all of Yamato’s character development, and Asahi being there with him helps him to go through that.

    I know that simply helping someone doesn’t equal romance, but there’s more. So many events in the story involve Yamato trusting Asahi entirely, and there are a surprising amount of events involving just those two. Some time after Chapter 4’s ending, Asahi gets a call from Yamato where he hurriedly says thank you for helping him before hanging up without waiting for an answer. When Yamato becomes suspicious of Reiji, he confides in Asahi and Asahi alone since he trusts him so much. Near the very end of the game when Asahi is feeling low about something, Yamato tries to say he cares for him and blushes as he can’t bring himself to. The two of them are basically inseparable by the end of the game, and I haven’t even gone into specific incidents in Sub-Events. Interpret it however you will yourself but I love the dynamic between these two so, so much. Akiba’s Beat does have flaws but god, character dynamics is not one of them.

    Janja and Jasiri from Lion Guard, and it actually ended up canon! Was so happy to see that in the end, those two started off as enemies but it was clear Janja liked her, the writers even confirmed it! Then in the final season Janja joined up with her, and it was clear in the final scene that they ended up together like Kion/Rani, Fuli/Azaad, and Bunga/Binga(?)
    I love that a ship I supported ended up canon for once! Naruto and Hinata's the only other one that did

    I finished watching 3 animes recently, namely
    • Bokutachi wa Benkyou ga Dekinai (We Never Learn)
    • 5-toubun no Hanayome (The Quintessential Quintuplets)
    • Senryuu Shoujo (Senryuu Girl)
    The first 2 are harem, while the last one is slice of life, and all 3 are quite popular. If you haven't watched or read these and you're planning to, better stop reading this post because the following contains spoilers.

    Ships that I'm into in ...

    We Never Learn
    Rizu is someone who is unmatched at mathematical calculations and science, but bad at understanding human emotions. She wants to study Humanities and Social Sciences to overcome her weakness. This ship is the one I'm most into because Rizu, despite having a hard time understanding other's thoughts and emotions, shows genuine emotion towards Nariyuki e.g. jealousy. This is also the first ship to shine in both the anime and manga due to an accidental kiss. Rizu's feelings grew unknowingly for her until her own arc a hundred chapters later, where she discovers it, and had unique ways of showing it to Nariyuki without the latter finding it out.

    Fumino is a writing prodigy, able to create essays (maybe even books) so great that her professors are moved to tears just reading them. And yes, she's bad at mathematics. And yes, she wants to study Science to overcome her weakness. She's the only girl who knew of the fact that Rizu and Uruka (someone I'm not really into) has feelings for Nariyuki. In all her interactions with Nariyuki, she displays reactions to seemingly inappropriate approaches to Nariyuki in a way that she deems it a betrayal to her 2 friends' feelings, but knew that she does not have any intentions at all. She does have an arc where her relationship with Nariyuki truly shines. Eventually, she becomes more open towards Nariyuki, and isn't ashamed to approach him more than what is necessary between friends.

    Asumi wants to study Medical Science so that her father's business continues, yet she's bad at it. This ship was more like a teasing-kind of relationship due to Asumi being a senior to Nariyuki. The teasing intensifies after an incident with her father finding out about her part-time job, where Asumi plays the "My boyfriend's interests" card and Nariyuki and to play along. During her arc, she develops feelings, but still denial about it to this day, saying something like "He's just my junior. What a show off".

    The Quintessential Quintuplets
    Miku is the 3rd sister, and among her sisters, she is the shy and quiet type. She tries to impress Fuutarou by cooking for him which she is bad at, but tries her best by practicing. This is the most popular ship out of the 5 due to Miku being the first one (anime and manga) to show hints of affection.

    Nino is the 2nd sister, and she's the sassiest and rudest, and she is the best at cooking. People didn't really like her as a character. Even I didn't, until I went through her arc, where there was a drastic change in her character and appearance. She slowly accepted Fuutarou on tutoring them from there, eventually the very first girl to confess, and eventually declaring her feelings openly to Fuutarou and her sisters, driving her sisters on the edge.

    Yotsuba is the 4th sister, and the most outgoing and cheerful. She had this one moment where she confessed to Fuutarou (technically the first girl to confess, way before Nino did) and took it back immediately by saying it was a lie. From there on out, there wasn't any significant interactions between her and Fuutarou. Way later in the manga, it was revealed that Yotsuba was the girl Fuutarou met when they were still children. She was seen swinging in the park alone, and says to herself, while crying, that she loved Fuutarou and she always have.

    Senryuu Girl
    Nanako is a completely quiet girl who has a unique trait. Instead of speaking, she writes senryuu (a type of haiku) to communicate. She spends time with former delinquent Eiji in their club room along with President Amane. This ship is extremely cute, both in anime and manga, because both have feelings for each other, but are not willing to tell the other.

    Komachi is a girl who believes Eiji likes girls that are delinquents. She tries to impress Eiji by being a delinquent, but is having a hard time adjusting due to her being a literature girl. In the past, Eiji saved her in a library when some thugs entered and demanded inappropriate magazines. After the incident, Eiji often came to the library to take a nap, while Komachi always looked at him sleeping. During this time, Komachi developed feelings.
