hi!!! so without being too biased bc i mean, obviously you'd probably say all the good stuffs abt todomomo but how popular is todomomo in the fandom? And also todoroki and momo individually? i'm new to the fandom and i just wanna know how well my otp/fave characters are received. esp shouto. i love him too much
*Cracks knuckles* alright lets get down to businessssss
WELCOME TO THE FANDOM! WEEEWOOooooo! Thats my happy shout. anyways. Todomomo, unfortunately, is definitely not as popular as I’d hope it to be. I mean compared to Tododeku, Kiribaku, Kamijirou, Izuocha, Kacchako, its one of those ‘rare pairs’ in the BNHA fandom.
Having said that, I think todomomo has potential to grow though. Even now I can see there is soooooo much more enthusiasm in the todomomo tag plus wayyyy more people who ship them now in contrast to before. Back when I first started this blog, it was like ded silent in the tag. Except for a few blogs like wr3h, natsv, akeemi, openforth (from the top of my head those are the ones I remember) who were actually active in the tag. So don’t give up on todomomo; its expanding like cray now. ALSO, CROSS FINGERS THEY ANIMATE THEIR FIGHT AGAINST AIZAWA.
Todoroki Shouto is smothered with love here so no worries about that. He’s def gonna be a fav character in bnha (at least top 5) for the rest of the series I think.
Momo on the other hand has less fans. I think ‘cas she’s rarely shown in the manga. Tsuyu and Ochako are pretty much the main girls and I doubt that will change unless there’s an arc where Momo exclusively works with Midoriya. More people seem to keep Momo in mind now that she was involved with the rescue bakugou arc. so woop woop for that!
Fun fact: I think Japanese fans really do like todomomo though especially ‘cas of the drama cd (if you haven’t listened to the drama cd where they go to the festival and see fireworks then you should, let me know if you need the link to the translation etc)
轟百 on google and you’ll get a lot of amazing japanese fanart/ doujinshi scans for those two.
I’m gonna be keeping an eye out for yaomomo merch when I stay in Japan so that could be a gauge on how well-received she is there.
thanks anon for the ask! I hope you like my long ass answer haha
UPDATE: @itsmyfandomandilikeit was kind enuf to share that todomomo is way more popular than i actually thought cas of recent reddit polls (actually hit #1 for one of the polls with a sample of 1000 participants) wowzzz!
His personality is my life. Also, when I started the anime, he was my favorite. He’s stuck with me as a favorite, but not as my top favorite.
4. Kuroo Tetsurou
Kuroo’s attitude towards others is something that I find hilarious, and always will, honestly. I also like his friendship with someone higher up on this list.
3. Tendou Satori
Tendou’s backstory just makes me so sad, but is also something that I can relate to! I love the way he’s come out on top of it all, even after losing to Karasuno. Sure he’s upset, but he’s still going to support and care for his team.
2. Bokuto Koutarou
Not only have I been shipped with this owl boy because of our similar personalities, but we have other things in common. My name’s that of a bird, I look a lot like said bird, and I have a best friend who is beautiful but very casual about things.
1. Oikawa Tooru
He’s just… (deep breath) so fucking perfect! I love his personality, his irritation with Kageyama, his urge to win, his small love for aliens, his glasses, him! GAH!
