|why is ichihime ur OTP instead of another ship like, inukag|
omg anon I don’t even know exactly, like have you ever seen that text post that says something like, “I didn’t choose the OTP, the OTP chose me” ? because that was basically me with IchiHime. I mean initially I thought IH was really cute but people in the Bleach fandom were spewing so much hate about it and saying it was ‘unhealthy,’ etc. so I quit the anime and switched to the manga to see for myself if IH was actually as unhealthy as the haters had claimed, and what I found was the complete opposite. I saw nothing but two people who care about each other so fucking much and are so protective over each other’s physical and emotional well-being, and there was nothing bad or unhealthy about it. And like, the fucking feels I got from IH were just ridiculous lol. I remember watching the episode where Ichigo made the promise to protect Orihime and thinking “omg…I think he’s in love with her” and then I saw the Goodbye, Halcyon Days episode where she made her confession and it was so profound and beautiful and I cried my eyes out. And then I watched the episode where Ulquiorra mentioned Orihime and Ichigo attacked him immediately and I was like “OMFG he loves her too and she doesn’t even know it” And like I said in my response to the ask about why I love IH, it is such a rounded pairing; they have moments that are really dorky and adorable, and then really dramatic/intense moments, and then romantic/heart-warming moments, and I love pairings that can make you feel so much in so many different ways, and that was always the case with IH. Plus, Ichigo and Orihime are my top two favorite bleach characters and I’ve always felt that they are meant to be together, and it just became my OTP!
