3. Ruby x Ria -- Best actual love story.
4. Nozomi x Eri -- They carry SIP S1.
5. Riko x Chika -- Actually said "I love you".
6. Hanayo x Rin -- Solid mid-tier ship. A bit undercooked in the anime but better in School Idol Festival.
7. Kotori x Umi -- They have to go together, they are basically Honoka's parents. OK characters, I like Kotori more than I like Umi.
8. Dia x Seira -- There is a few-seconds-long scene in S2E09 where they bond and that's good enough for me.
9. Mari x Kanan -- Hagu?
10. Honoka x Tsubasa -- Rivalry too-friendly.
11. Erena x Anju -- Every aidoru must be shipped.
12. You x Uchicchi -- Childhood friends who refuse to confess end up crying into their aquarium mascot fursuits. A life lesson.

Fight me.


I haven't watched Sunshine yet so can't comment on that :oops:

But this...

Come on now, you can't pair a tsundere with a tsundere. You need one who's outgoing and can express her feelings in order to fluster the other one!

Maki x Nico is 100% the best ship.

You know what else was "the best ship"? The Titanic! Look how that turned out!

This kind of gooseberry fool is why Anime gets the reputation it does.

Tsundere x tsundere is fine if they fluster each other! Beyond that, I feel Nico fulfils more of a chuuni archetype than a straight tsundere, and chuuni x tsundere is a classic ship template.

I'm not up on Anime nomenclature but does tsundere basically mean someone who says they hate/are irritated by someone but secretly love them?

Kind of like Helga from Hey Arnold.

Or sticking with anime, Ryuko and Mako's relationship in Kill La Kill.

Helga is a good example, she even has twintails (hairstyle).

I'd say Ryuko and Mako are just friends, they both care for each other it's just Mako is more outgoing.

Well screw that. This kind of discussion is basically the same as making a fantasy football team or something, only instead of sweaty men we're discussing cute girls.

How come one is socially acceptable but the other makes you a perv

I never said I thought talking about anime characters in thatt context was wrong as such, more an observation of why an outsider might think all anime is the same.

You could apply that train of thought to most things. Video games, fantasy football, horse racing, comics, music, particular movie genres and so on. To the outsider most folks pastimes, obsessions even, are 'odd' and all the same.

I tend to ignore those people and let them think whatever they like. In the same instance I wouldn't condemn or sneer at their interests. Horse racing for example. Don't get it, but I appreciate that some absolutely live for it and will bet literally hundreds, if not thousands of pounds on a single race. Each to their own. That said Cheltenham race week is a nightmare for those who live and work here and I'm glad it's over for another year. Not the racing itself, but all the pissed up assholes causing grief and agro - and there is always a lot of them.

I started watching After the Rain today, it's on Amazon Prime and it's very good.

The art style reminds me a lot of 90's anime, giant eyes and necks that go on for miles.

Still overall great wholesome love story (so far). If this goes all Nice Boat on me I will be seriously pissed off!

Also, Akari Tachiban is a true best girl, super wholesome waifu.

There definitely is something inherently a bit odd about how anime fans (me as well!) engage with anime - ships, best girls, waifus, figurines... - and I can understand why it puts people off the medium. In my experience, nine anime nerds out of ten mean it totally harmlessly - basically tongue-in-cheek - like how someone might rank their favourite superheroes, or 'debate' whether Batman could beat up Iron Man, or put an action figure on their shelf. I am conscious that's not how it looks from the outside though so I would never use that terminology outside of a fan community (like this thread).

I think it only becomes a problem if you're so bubbled in to the anime fan mindset that you lose all self-awareness forget how to speak to normal people. I think that's actually a pretty small minority of the fan-base, and to be fair I'm sure there are a few people like that in every niche interest.

Batman definitely could beat Iron Man.

Anyway, still watching (and enjoying) Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, I've just got about 1/3 left to watch and things are getting quite interesting.

If anything happens to Winry I'll not be pleased

Agreed. Like all Batman vs. ... questions, it comes down to the environment the fight is in, and the prep time Batman is allowed.

Well over a decade, man. It feels completely unreal that we're finally here at this point in the story.

All caught up with March Comes in Like a Lion, great show about a guy whose a professional Shogi player. It's like a slice of life, but get this, stuff actually happens! I'm also really liking the art style.

I've also gone back to try and finish Hajimete no Gal. You can really see it's a pretty low budget show, whenever there's actual animation it seems like the quality totally tanks. Still I think it's enjoyable, and it's nice to see a romantic comedy where the main character actually has a spine.
