I couldn't think of anything to put in this entry, so I thought I'd randomly select pairings I don't like, and try to explain why I don't like them.
Let's start with Digimon, then. Pairing I don't like: Daikeru. Why? Well, that's a long story...
Okay. Anyway... It started with season 1. When I first got into the show, I'd never even heard of the show, and I liked the pairing of Taichi and Sora. Bleh. Of course, I encountered yaoi, and liked it much better, but the anti-Sora propaganda really got to me, and I ended up disliking Sora - who had, until then, been my favorite female character. Hikari became my new favorite female. Thus, I was determined *never* to like Daikeru because I would get lots of anti-Hikaru stuff - since both Daisuke and Takeru seem to "like" her. Besides, I like Takeru and Hikari together. So, I was very much afraid of Daikeru and avoided it like the plague.
And then... Kensuke came along with its wonderful Daisuke and Ken action and lots of hints for me to drool over, both when Ken was evil and when he turned good. So, after that, Daikeru broke up both Takeru&Hikari *and* Kensuke, so I had twice as much reason to dislike it.
And that's all. Nothing against the couple itself - it's a perfectly good couple with perfectly good hints and two perfectly nice guys involved. But I don't like it, and that's that for me, I guess.
Okay, next is Pokemon. Pairing I don't like: ummmm... none I absolutely dislike, actually. I even don't mind Satoshi and Kasumi any more. What can I say? It's all good.
Moving along then...
Gundam Wing. Pairing I don't like: there are many. But I'll focus on my least favorite - which is Dorothy and Quatre.
Ugh. Ugh ugh *ugh*! I can't even say how many levels on which I think that this is wrong! I *despise* Dorothy! I can't even say why; I just have this unreasoning hatred for her. Quatre is my favorite character, and I like him best with Trowa, who I think is very cool. But Dorothy... she is my *least* favorite character. I don't mind Hilde, and I can tolerate Relena, but Dorothy... oh no. She is evil. Never never *never* will I see her and Quatre together!
Reasons: okay. For one, Dorothy doesn't even encounter Quatre until near the end of the series. In fact, Dorothy isn't much of a character. She's basically created to be what appears to be Quatre's opposite, and turns out to be exactly like him. (but without Trowa to talk her back sane again) They fence with each other, and she stabs him. This is romantic? I don't see it. In fact, I don't even know why I'm arguing against this couple at all. I think the only reason people like it is if Quatre's their favorite character and they don't want him to be gay. Correct me if I'm wrong - otherwise, I'm leaving it at that.
Let's move on, shall we?
Last but not least, my most favorite-est anime at the moment, Weiss Kreuz. (Omi and Ken FOREVER! Yay!)
The couple I dislike: RanKen. Also known as AyaxKen, or AxK, or RK or whatever you want to call it. Like I care. Why? Well...
For one thing... there is no evidence. There seem to be a number of people who base their infatuation with this couple on one of two things. One, they saw a picture from the show, decided Ken and Aya were the hottest, and proceded to pair them off. Two, they saw the sheer number of fanfics available to them, or read a fanfic for the couple, and decided that this was the best pairing to go for. On the show, you see little to no real evidence. I watched the whole series expecting to see a good chunk of RanKen evidence, so as to explain the popularity of the couple. Nothing. Nada. Zilch.
I went and looked at the manga next. I figured... well. If there's nothing on the show, obviously people are getting their hints from somewhere else. I found a site with scans and translation, and I understood a little better. All right... Aya and Ken appear to hate each other with a bloody passion. I see this all the time in fandoms, so it's not such a shock that they're being paired off a lot. However, there's a lack of romantic or sexual tension in this hatred. Maybe I'm just biased, but all I saw was a lot of pride and a mix of 'you're the enemy, you must die'. A little different from "Seeing you squirm is *so* delicious." Digimon is more suggestive than Weiss, hmm?
Third point. Who would be on top? A *lot* of people say Aya. Why? Because... Ken's younger and shorter, I guess. Then they procede to turn Ken into a weepy, weak, obsessive, clumsy, cute, blushing virginal type. Four out of those seven terms more closely describe Omi than Ken. And I think all of them but one can be used to describe Sakura Tomoe. I still have no idea where people got the idea that Ken is clumsy. I've never seen him drop a flower pot or trip over his own feet even once. Anyway... after they've turned Ken into Sakura-in-boy-form, they turn Aya into a caring, kind, open, warm-hearted young man who shows his cold side to everyone except Ken. Ummmm... ok. Now that we've turned Ken into male-Sakura, and Aya into Quatre... Hmm. Doesn't work, does it?
Anyway, yeah. Maybe in my next entry, if I still have nothing better to put in it, I'll add my reasons for liking my favorite couples.
