As some of us know; there's a high-chance they plan to throw it in. I'm honestly unhappy with it but I love Aikatsu more than my discomfort with straight, cliche shipping- so I don't plan on making a fuss.
However... what I am making a fuss about is the fact some members tend to cause trouble over this. I'm getting it out of the way now to hopefully avoid some of the unnecessary drama down the road. So I put it in a nice, simple, and easy explanation of my various points I wish to make:
1. Don't like it? Ignore it.
It is THAT simple. Just ignore the various instances of shipping by skipping them when you watch, or if you see members chatting about it. I've done it during the early instances of Naoto X Ichigo (which ended up being nothing anyway) and I was able to keep watching just fine. I allowed other members to chat about it, never gave them as much as a grief-filled whine-fest.
I'd like to be perfectly clear and just say this now because I AM READY TO START YANKING HAIR BECAUSE OF THIS. If you don't like shipping that is FINE, giving an OPINION on it is also FINE. But when you overdo it, it just ruins everyone's fun and can really make them as upset as you are. Don't ruin everyone's fun because you're being pouty over a relationship that may or may not even be there.
3. Enjoy Shipping in Small Doses
I've noticed in some instances, the shippers behave the same way anti-shippers do. By this I mean, "oh well you have to like the couple to fit in. Its so obvious so just deal with it!" compared to the anti-shipping "they don't work together, its too cliche! You can't ship them!"
Basically, nobody likes forceful members who try to push their ship-related feelings onto each other. Its annoying and can really cause a lot of resentment and frustration. Then eventually hurt feelings and members being banned....
You can enjoy shipping, or you can be against it. That's fine, nobody judges. BUT you need to be considerate for your fellow members. If you see something you don't like then just try to ignore it and focus on other things, or if its a topic you made, kindly ask them to leave such things out of it. The same goes for those who enjoy shipping and may wish for a positive discussion. A little kindness goes a long way people.
Users who continue to gripe and whine over one or the other, to the point of annoying several members MAY face a mild banning-related punishment. As well as being told off by other users knowing this place.
Thank you anyone who took the time to read this. If I forgot anything feel free to comment.
