Suggestions for Ships

Post by Chocola » Tue Jul 09, 2019 12:49 am

Purpose

This thread is to serve as a place anyone can suggest pairings (two characters) for possible use in exhibition.

Disclaimer: This thread is for suggestions for inspiration only. There is by no means any guarantee that matches suggested will be used at all.

Rules
  1. You should suggest pairings (2 characters) only and not a matchup
  2. They must be from the same anime, manga, other Japanese media, or game (anime is preferred)
  3. They do not have to canonically be a pairing from that said anime
  4. Characters should not be in the current year's main tournament, or from an anime that is too obscure
  5. If the pairing isn't obvious, give an explanation on why you think it works and some further context
If you want further discussion, please join our discord and post on #saimoe-moe-kyun channel.

A tall, towering wall looms in front of me. Beyond that is something that I could never to see on my own.
And that is...the view from the top.

@Chibasa Shouldn't we also "prohibit" ships that are made by characters that join Tournament Championships? e.g. Hōtarō X Eru?
