Shinpachi is like the ‘Armin’ of Gintama, he doesn’t get that much official goods and he’s frequently undermined. I’d even say he’s practically being ignored by the companies making Gintama merchandise. Why? is it because his glasses? Is it because he’s not sadistic?? Is it because he’s a straight man?? Is it because he’s an otaku??? Save Shinpachi.
its a bad ship. there is nothing even remotely romantic about their interactions? he was literally trying to force her into submission, essentially torturing her, to get information that he wanted. he’s a murderer and wants to twist her into the dark side. I dont know why anyone would like it other than people enjoy swooning over the “misunderstood” characters who are actually terrible tyrants who destroy planets and torture people. lol. its dumb, theres no reason that ship should exist.
