Not shipping in general, the wars, the battles on the field
I am a very strong shipper if i find some sort of reason that these two would be cute together then i grab it
However there are people that are very, obnoxious, when it comes to this
You might have one side that likes Kokichi X Himiko, and another that likes Shuichi X Kokichi
You might have one side that likes NaruHina, and another that likes NaruSaku
You might have one side that likes Jaden X Alexis, and another that likes Jaden X That blue haired guy who really liked gems
If there is a fandom, there are ships
there is suffering
I usually keep out of these things, especially if i just don't care about the characters that much
but sometimes there are times where i get buttblasted and start fighting with others simply for having a different opinion (I'm still mad over bleach, fite me)

What about you? how do feel about shipping wars?

I love them because it produces a huge amount of salt like Darling in the FranXX did recently. But then people take things too far like with the aformentioned show or Tokyo Ghoul and start sending death threats to the people behined those series, which is not okay.

Yep he did. Also the lead writer and artist as well if I'm not mistaken. That's why I mentioned FranXX.

I'm fine if people ship characters, I do it sometimes, but I don't like the over-emphasis on shipping part. I'm just in fandoms for the great fanart and the hope that a character I like will get a Nendoroid.

It reminds me of those "Goku vs Luffy" crossover battles that people spend hours arguing about. If that's what people are into, go for it. Though personally I see shipping as a sad way to explore characters since it fundamentally forces the viewer's expectations onto them.

12 year old me punched a girl because she shipped Azula with Sokka. Shipping is serious business, at least among girls.

I got to say that shipping and waifuism keep this industry alive and growing , hating it is OK but don't expect it to stop anytime soon .

I do ship some characters , but I'm not as enthusiastic about it unless it involves Kirisu , Yukinoshita or Yuigahama.


This Signature is gonna be removed soon anyway so...Why?

Shipping wars are weird but funny. It's strange when people flame on forums but that's internet for you. I always ship characters or choose best girl for fun, I don't get serious, even for movies or books.

I'll sadly participate only to defend. It's really pointless in all honesty. Why people can't just let people like what they like is beyond me. The amount of berating and hypocrisy in my current main stead fandom is fucking ridiculous.

I think you under estimate how many guys are shippers. That entire debacle with Darling in the Franxx and wifudom is steamed into shipping.

Never really participate in one of these "Wars" cause I'm would be satisfy if the canon pairing is reasonable, you know, if it's not come out of nowhere or something.
Darling in the Franxx for example, the pairing is not quite the norm, but it's reasonable still.
the One Time where I actually participate is Genshiken, the last pair is just, WTF!
I was pretty hype up too, because there're 2 equally good candidates, and either of them would be fine by me, but NOOOOOOOOOOOOoooo
Like what was the author thinking, flip a coin?

Voted for the 1st option. I just want to stay away from those retarded shippers who can go to any lengths to force their ships down other people's throats. I'd rather block them than waste my time arguing. Besides those masochist Japanese authors/mangakas usually only support the worst guy/girl so I'm always on the losing side.

I've went through the era of:
Hinata vs Sakura
Orihime vs Rukia
The great shipping war Onodera vs Chitoge and Rem vs Emilia
Then, the currently airing Zero Two vs Ichigo

But I never participate in these fandoms.. so I don't really care...
But I have to admit, seeing people getting salty and went into a rage, is really fun.


I seriously need to stop watching idol anime... The fact that I can't afford to buy their CDs yet keep making my heart broken..

For shipping? Shipping is really silly. I’m not stopping you or anything, go ahead. Have fun with Sonic x Goku. Nobody is stopping you from drawing fan art of art or thinking it either.

Ship WARS? You don’t take the series that seriously do you? Wait, what was that? “Like, The MC and sidekick got touchy this one scene, and they were always like childhood friends, so that’s proof it’s wrong to ship MC and other sidekick you (insert personally charged insult here) 🤓” Yeah no that’s too far. There is no reason to fight over something trivial as anime characters. Getting tribalistic over your “ships” is way too far (especially when you attack the franchise creators for it...). Questioning the state of character relationships in anime is fine, but instigating internet flames because something contradicts your ideal ship is too far. It’s just embarrassing.
Waifu wars fluctuate. It can just be little “robin > nami” comments or a huge flame war why YOUR waifu is wrong and MINE IS THE RIGHT ONE.

I'm a shipper and it's a serious business for me. I live for my OTPs.
When I said serious, I mean like, I spend time and money and effort on them.
Not to defend them, not to force them on people, not to force them to become canon (though I'd be elated if they do become canon).
Just simply enjoying them and share my love for them is what I meant by serious business.

So, I don't participate in ship wars.

I'm one of those shippers who post and share contents for my ships.
I read fanfics.
I make, share and collect fanarts.
I buy, read, share and translate doujinshis.
I talk about my ships to fellow fans.
I show and spread my love about my ships by creating contents for them.

I don't force anyone to ship my ships.

But I do hate when ppl that talk shit abt my ships but I mostly ignore them and focus on enjoying/making more contents of my ships for me and fellow fans to enjoy.

Haters gonna hate.

But it's kind of fun to read shipping wars of ships I don't really care that much about lol.

shipping wars sound like a romanticized version of war over trade routes and commodities

okay for real. i never met a shipper in real life, maybe they’re not showing it.

if they want to wage a war with each other, let them do so. but i still can’t fathom what kind of argument they want to bring on the debate over a fictional pairings, but that’s their war, it can’t be helped, whoever wins is the happiest i guess.

some people just have more imagination than the other.

don’t get me wrong, i’ll pair the fuck outta Raku and Onodera, and i have my reason ready. but there are some cases that people harrasing the author for making a decision that against a majority of the community, and that’s way over the line for me. so a moderate and civilized shipping war maybe better

i dunno though, all i know is that a heated argument always bring excitement

If you're talking about anime which is purely Romance based then definitely it matters. Otherwise what's the point of watching Romance.

Honestly I don't mind if people wanna ship, I have done it in the past too but to me there is only two rules I care about

1. Respect mine and Ill Respect yours
2. If Rule 1 is too difficult then your ship is invalid

Simple

Never really been passionate about a ship to the extent that I'd argue to the death for it. But I do like to bring up my points of why I think my ship makes sense with the context that is given from the anime/manga. It's also rare that I ship only one couple per series. So I often find myself giggling at "A/B vs A/C shipping war" because I just might agree with both!

I get how some series can have this effect on the fandom, but I just can't see how can people get crazy with it.

Except if you ship anything other than Deku x Uraraka in BNH.
I will personally hunt you if you do.
And your next line will be:

It can't possibly be Jugemu Jugemu Goko-no-surikire Kaijyari-no-suigyomatsu Unraimatsu Furaimatsu Kunero-tokoro-ni Sumu-tokoro Yaburakoji-no-burakoji Paipopaipai-no-Shuringan Shuringan-no-Gurindai Gurindai-no Ponpokopi-to Ponpokona-no Choukumei-no-chousuke!!!!
