IH: What an amazing platonic bond! Ichiruki fans think men and women can’t be friends. Look at that friendship! How can you see anything but friendship? Look at those bros standing side by side. BROTP!
Kubo: Ichigo and Rukia are more than friends less than lovers
Sooooo I’m just curious. I know we’re all salty about Bleach’s ending, but I wanted to know: are you more pissed about the endgame pairings or the actual shitty ending?
‘Cause look, tbh endgame pairings don’t matter, okay. We’re all gonna ship whoever the fuck we wanna ship. That’s life. All you IH/RR fans: congrats! I’m happy you’re happy. But regardless of any of this ship drama, you all do recognize that this ending is literally the shittiest end to ever shit on us in the history of shitty endings, right? Like just because you got your ships canonized doesn’t mean this ending isn’t the worst fucking thing. And I don’t just mean 686, because the preceding chapters were pretty fucking lackluster too.
I mean, just think about it! Kubo successfully dismantled fifteen years of character development in like twenty measly pages. FIFTEEN. FUCKING FIFTEEN FUCKING YEARS! Some of you aren’t even that old! He legit took everything we ever knew about any of the MAIN characters (because like 90% of the characters didn’t get any resolution at all, which, now that I think about it, might actually be preferable to the clusterfuck ending we did get), took all their experiences and emotions and dreams and just destroyed them, crushed them like…like…something very crushable! WET SAND, I don’t fucking know, but he fucking did it! It’s almost impressive, EXCEPT THAT IT’S SO COMPLETELY DISASTROUS.
So yeah, I’m curious. What is it you all are really angry about? Because it really should be about the ending as a whole, and not the canon pairings.
AND A NOTE to all you anti-IR children actively hating on IR shippers? Please stop.
The fact of the matter is, we love IR. Nothing you do or say will make us abandon our ship, just like nothing we do or say will make you abandon yours. So just don’t. Leave our fanfiction/art/whatever alone. If you can’t be nice to us, just ignore us. Honestly. It’s so much easier.
