So, I’ve been rewatching Cyber Formula episodes on 4x speed to try and identify cels of mine, but I was reminded rather suddenly of something when I reached Double One: Episode 5.
So my question is (as also posted on Twitter:)
Some ships develop over time as you watch the characters grow, but has anyone had a ship that just hit you like a brick while watching/reading?
Like the “holy shit, I could totally see them together” moment of awesome.
I’m rewatching Cyber Formula: Double One, and about 5 minutes into episode 5 was my HOLY SHIT I SHIP THEM FOREVER moment for Franz and Jackie. I mean, I remember it hitting me like a sudden thing suddenly over my head. Crazy feeling. xD
Before that point, I really liked the two men’s banter, but it was more in the bromance of violent justice feeling more than shipping it.
Minor Spoiler for Cyber Formula: Double One, should anyone watch it:
In episode 5 of Double One, Jackie gets knocked off the track and breaks his leg, and Franz does a formal apology to him at the hospital because he’s CONVINCED that something in the car’s design got Jackie hurt. Jackie tells him to knock off the apologies, but Franz is all guilty!pants, and it’s utterly adorable :D There was just something about the scene that made me sign up for the US GuHa (as it’s called in Japan) shipping club of one on the fucking spot.
So yes, what about y’all?
