I ship characters, even today.
But careful not to get too fanatical in promoting my opinions of course. Pairings that come out of nowhere? I guess that's what fanfics are for.
After seeing episode 3, I thought Taichi x Yui has a chance - but I guess that's just wishful thinking on my part. Currently hoping for a Taichi x Iori end. Inaba just seems too much of a pessimist. In real life, I avoid pessimistic people like the plague.
To be honest, I'm not really a shipper-guy. For me, the things that matters are always character development and relationship development. As long as those grounds are well-covered, It doesn't matter for me who ends up with who. Automatically, I hate pairings that "came out of nowhere".
So far, both Taichi x Iori & Taichi x Inaba pairings are good to me (character-wise & relationship-wise). Both Inaba & Iori have their pluses & minuses, so I'll cheer for both of them . As for Yui x Aoki, well... I think it's already set in stone that they'll be together, so why bother? XD
Actually, the incident itself is kinda important for us to know coz there's a high chance that it will affect the future of Kokoro Connect anime. The scandal is actually quite huge and now there's a special thread for it called "Kokoro Connect Bullying Incident". Don't worry, there's no spoiler there (so far).
Yup. If you see the KC anime thread. You'll see some of my posts there. The thing is, I'm kinda disappointed with some particular publicity stunt (read the thread) that most possibly will bring negative impact to KC. That can result in KC won't get a 2nd season and that means the story in the anime will never be resolved T_T. Sigh....
