I think YukiShi still has a good chance :)

I look forward to the triangle. YukiShi is a better fit in the long run, though.

^yeah I can see more Rin and Shiemi as close friends but Shiemi has harbored A crush to Yukio longer... But dunno ^^"
Plus as A bf Yukio would be reliable if you get past his shell and that he tries to avoid girls (or at least those masses of fangirls in his school)

I personally don't think Shiemi is a good fit for Yukio, personality wise.
I'm sure he'd be good to her, but a strong-headed intelligent girl would really catch his eye, and IMO we haven't seen anything close to that kind of character.

Shiemi and Rin are my brotp, and maybe Yukio would brood less if he were with Shiemi

xD I could see that.

I dunno, it just doesn't seem to fit with me at all. I see RinShi as this really awkward quirky couple (I suppose I know so many couples like that in real life that remind me of them) and it just works in my head.

YukiShi is adorable and she makes him smile, which is what he needs. I just really would like to see a another character fill in the gap. A girl that's not crazy hot-headed like Shura/Izumo or sickingly sweet and ditzy like Shiemi.

(pssst....is there a thread in a fanworks subforum about submitting original characters to this universe, I love the plot bunnies thread :)

Although I am a proud Rizumo shipper i'd rather have a new girl if Rin were to actually be in a relationship

taking ships so seriously for a shounen manga is still pretty weird for me, but I guess that's another thing that makes ao no exorcist unique from other shounen series

Nope, but feel free to make one.

Hahahahahahaha

No. Believe me, this is not unique to Blue Exorcist. Every series has their part of crazy shippers who only seem to care about who ends up with whom. Even shonen that contain barely any romance at all (Attack of Titan, anyone?) spur more discussion/fanart based on shipping than anything else.

This forum is actually really calm in that aspect. Everywhere else I go, shipping threads are among the busiest of the forum, but here people don't really seem to care... which is kind of a relief, honestly (shipping wars are the dread of every forum mod, second only to political discussions. It's one of the reasons why I decided to keep it all in one place, rather than allowing the series of "Shiemi vs Izumo" threads you see on MF etc.).

And I'm glad there isn't shipping wars.
 Everyone seems so chill with other peoples ships, even if they don't agree with it or don't see why it works, here. Nice and refreshing, really.
That or people just don't say anything.
I think here I'm able to experience other peoples ships and be able to experience them a bit, (hell, stuff lke ToudouxYukio I would never have considered, and I may not ship it but I actually have come to like the concept...) whereas in other places you tend to choose your ship(s) and kinda be careful about where you tread...

Agreed, aggressive shipping will get out off hand and be messy..
I kinda rarely ship anything seriously but I have some AnE guilty pleasures~~

Never understood why people get aggressive about it.
If it doesn't turn out how you want it to - meh. Just headcannon it out of your personal fandom and go read fanfiction that fulfills what you want. (I have to do this a lot with issues in Harry Potter...oh god...)

I don't understand all the hate either; god forbid people have actual opinions on the Internet that are different from your own -.- Though, at least most ANE fans don't fight over pairings/have shipping wars.

Although, there's always someone who has to flame/bash.  A guest reviewer for one of my fics (City of Demons, if anyone's curious and wants to see the review on ff.net) bashed Mephisto/Shura despite it being only a side pairing and not the main pairing of the fic (Rin/Izumo). He/She then tried to prove that Mephisto was already married because one of his aliases was Loki. And then implied I was stupid just for liking the pairing and my only saving grace was that I shipped Rin/Izumo. Like seriously? Sorry, ranting aside, I hate when people bash other people's pairings.

I really hope this person isn't on this forum/lurking around

Am I a bad person for almost wanting to see a major character death (perhaps any one of the ExWires?) just to shake things up in the hetero shipping spectrum?

Oh sorry actually what I meant was that it's weird because in all of the shounen series i've read/seen it sucks having an otp in it because the closest they'll ever get is a hug, but in Blue Exorcist I think at least one ship will come true or at least that's my opinion anyway.. sorry if i'm not being very clear it's hard to explain

As a survivor of the Bleach Flame wars, I was actually happy to see none bashed me for supporting something not-so-popular as RinIzu.

I remember when I was active within the IchiRuki fanbase, the other IchiRuki hated me because I wanted peace with the IchiHime... and the IchiHime hated me because I was IchiRuki... and god forbid I disagreed about an IchiRuki theory.
