Where do you see what the most popular ships are? I'm really self-conscious about Genyatta right now because like people who don't ship Genyatta just whore Genji out to everyone else and don't give a shit about Zenyatta or his love life lmao i hate people.
Tumblr released a “ship metrics” post where they compile data collected throughout their website and it listed the “Top 20 Ships” on this website. From Overwatch, only McHanzo and Reaper76 made the list.
I’m sorry you feel that way, though. I don’t think people mean to ‘whore Genji out’ or purposely neglect Zenyatta; it’s just that people like different ships. It’s okay to have different tastes, but I can see why you might feel frustrated. I know some people can overlook or brush by Genyatta.
If it makes you feel any better, I personally love Genyatta. I’ve joked about this with my sister and a couple friends before, but if Michael Chu approached me and said, “If you delete the McHanzo blog right now, I’ll make Genyatta canon. Do we have a deal?” I’d take that in a heartbeat. That’s how much I love them together.
It’s a very nice, wholesome ship and I think it’s extremely healthy for both Zenyatta and Genji. Not to say that any other ships with either of them are unhealthy, but their history proves that being together brings them both peace of mind and they get along so well. I have a lot of Genyatta feelings and I’ll try not to bore any of our followers with my spiel. I don’t mind any other Zenyatta-based or Genji-based ships (I believe we can all get along despite having different ships), but Genyatta comes awfully close to McHanzo in my books.
