What makes Leorio and Kurapika a perfect couple in your eyes
I mean, “perfect couple” isn’t what I’d call them, but I can tell you why I ship them so strongly…
Firstly, Leorio also isn’t afraid of people like kurapika. Kurapika intimidates people and really doesnt make friends easily - but Leorio pushed passed that in like an hour and they became close friends. Leorio literally doesn’t give a shit about how scary kurapika is - and bc of that, Kurapika becomes softer and more open.
I think one of the biggest factors is that they’re super balanced… Because they are both characters who can be pretty harsh in their honesty, it means that they resolve problems with each other quickly. If leorio has a problem with kurapika you know damn well kurapikas gonna here about it, and if Kurapika’s pissed off with leorio he’s certainly not one to hide it. They look dysfunctional because they yell shit at each other a lot, but that seems to be how they work it out, and they do work it out. Neither one of them is in control of the other
Another thing is that they benefit each other - make each other better people.
They seem to act as each other’s voice of reason a lot. They both tell each other when their emotions are lying to them - like when Leorio is getting needlessly worked up or when kurapika thinks he’s all alone.
Although kurapika pulled a real dick move with the whole no calling thing, you can kinda understand why bc like, how many times have you been so convinced you’re all alone or a harm to other people that you end up cutting yourself off and making yourself lonelier? It wasn’t fair of kurapika to do that, but I think that leorio will find a way to push back into kurapikas life and stay there, and I don’t think kurapika will pull that kind of thing again
