Takamoto Ayaka x Kawata Hina (Hinayaka)
I never thought the day would come but here were are! My Hinatazaka46’s (previous known as Hiragana Keyaki) OTP just got such a major rival they might as well be dethroned with the amount of content we have gotten in such a sort period of time! Worse still, even their ship name rhymes with the new group name! Like, how more perfect could they be!
Oh wait, they could have the perfect height-difference, WHICH THEY DO!! Or their feelings could be mutual, WHICH THEY ARE!!! Like, they are practically perfect!!!! The only reason they are not OTP yet is just my stubborn inner shipper still pinning over Ayouko (Ayaka and Saitou Kyouko)! Those first OTPs are like first loves, very very hard to get over and in some cases one could never!
But even that as it may, I just was no unprepared for these two! Like, look at them! Just…look at them! I can already read the none existent hundreds of fics about them in my head because they are just so shippable! And they have rivals all around! Forget about Kyouko, there is Katoshi (Kato Shiho) who is also pinning after Hina, then there is Ayaka’s BFF Mei (Higashimura) who is also very shippable with Ayaka! I tried those mentioned but other than Kyouko, this ship is in a league of unheardofness!
Seriously, within the span of about a month we have got; them two now being paired in MVs (RIP Ayouko), getting featured in both Hinatazaka’s shows currently running; with Hinatazaka de Aimashou bringing us first the battle of Hina – where members had to fight for her by playing a game where they stood at a distance from her and had to claim her by being the first one to get to her and by process of elimination, the one with the least grip on her looses! Suffice to say, Ayaka and Shiho were of course the ones with the most claim but while they were declared draw, I am sorry Shiho but to us you obviously lost that battle!
Then the other show HINABINGO gave us a two parter where the girls chose who their most favourable sister was. Even the battle of Fates couldn’t keep Ayaka and Hina apart as they managed to pick other other and while it was the battle of the sisters, somehow I doubt it these two were on the same wave-length! And from such fates, we got the battle of ‘closeness’ where Ithink this might be the first time I remember seeing symmetrical docking on these types of shows!
Yes, I remember that MAYUKI episode but somehow their height difference, especially at the time, doesn’t quite cut it for the term!
But things don’t even stop there! It seems things extend to back-stage (or real life as I like to call it). In one of the special broadcasts of one of their lives, we got to see them backstage and were they not only lovey-dovey, but they were doing it right next to Kyouko! Really ayaka!?!
Needless to say, I am ALL IN for Hinayaka and will be on the look out for more so expect content in the future!
And wit hthat, I leave thee with more caps…
