Shinra X Celty: why it works
Let us just begin with the fact that um THEY LIVE TOGETHER. Not to say that every couple that ever lives together belongs together, but in this particular case it’s true. Why the fuck else would you just stick your head inside the shower when you think that the hot Irish fairy you live with who happens to be in the shower? Shinra just sort of waltzes into the apartment, hears the shower running, and goes right in on his merry way expecting a naked Celty there. I mean, sure it turns out to be his father, but HE STILL WENT IN THERE. Was he expecting shower sex from her or something? Why else do you go into someone’s shower right when you come in the fucking door? Pretty sure casual shower sex in Shinra’s apartment must be a thing. Just saying.
Then there’s the fact that she has this little palm pilot thing he gave her in order for her to be able to communicate. However, when this thing almost breaks, Celty isn’t worried because it’s her only form of communication, but that it was a present from Shinra and she doesn’t want it broken. I’m pretty sure being able to communicate is a little more important than who gave it to you, unless that is you love the person who gave it to you.
Then there’s the whole he thinks she’s perfect just the way she is thing, despite her not having a head. That’s pretty much the equivalency of telling a girl she looks pretty without make up and doesn’t need to put it on. Shura is basically telling Celty “ you look beautiful without a head and don’t need to search for your head”. Which is pretty sweet of him.
Then in the last episode when they talk about “the cutest couple in Ikebukero” Shinra gives himself a slight complex over whether they should go downtown to show the world that they are.
By the way, it says that he’s in love with her I don’t know A MILLION FUCKING TIMES. Who wouldn’t love him back after all he’s done for her? And if she doesn’t? Then why the hell do they worry about each other so much?!
And you Know it.
I will go down with the ship.
