I have been noticing a rather disturbing trend the last few years. It seems that authors of manga have decided it is easier to leave pairings ambiguous. While this would not necessarily be a problem, it is my belief they are doing this because the lingering hope some shippers have keep them on the series, regardless of whether they enjoy it or not.

Or maybe I'm spewing nonsense. Either way, discuss.
>>
Not so much a new trend, but yeah authors do that and it makes me so goddamn angry sometimes.
>>

Fair point its not a new trend most likely. But I do think its been picking up speed. Honestly, there are some HAREM manga that distinguish who the main love interest more than the top shounen -_-
Rosario Vampire for example.

Who the fuck cares about whether shippers need to conjure up "canon evidence" to validate their ship, you're nearly just as bad for letting it bother you.

Romance in anime/manga has always been shit anyways. Ignore that aspect and enjoy the rest of whatever it has to offer.
>>
>>101951865
Thats not necessarily true, although it definitely tends to be in action manga. In manga that are dedicated to romance, there can be some pretty good stories.
>>
Most recent example of this bullshit is soutaisei moteron. But when they end it like that, its more like theyre hoping that people will outcry enough to get it to be picked up again so they can get more money, rather than letting it die peacefully with any particular pairing being actually canon
>>
CLAMP was making manga with all manner of shipbaiting you could imagine long before
>>
>>101951668
Don't worry. Houki will win IS hands down and the author is going to let everybody know it, once he's made his money and doesn't have to care about pissing off the other 90% of its followers.
>>
>>101951952
hahaha probably lol
>>
Yes, you're right OP.

Now stop putting your email in the email field.

That's the thing though, they drag it out constantly hoping the waifufags keep watching to see who wins. and when people start dropping it because its gone on far too long with far too many MISUNDERSTANDINGS and shit like avoiding the actual romance, then the author wonders why people don't read it anymore and give an ambiguous ending to satisfy as much of what little audience remains because they will inevitably look for clues as to their own best girl winning and defend it into the ground

>pairing are ambiguous outside romance manga
Well no shit. The moment a ship is confirmed it become the sole focus of the story and it's incredibly difficult to shift that back to whatever that story was previously about. If anything I would say the trend is a good thing.
>>
>>101952162
Hmm, good point, I suppose it would be hard to break away from that. Although I would prefer them to not even make it a part of the story at all instead of leaving little teasers.

>faggot actually choosing a girl
That shit is only good for waifu wars.

Where do you see that? Most anime I watch with romance always have a main girl or guy. Unless you mean shounen/harem, but who watches that for romance?
For VN adaptions they always just use the most popular girl for end game. Some shippers like fujoshits or other losers will ship regardless.

Stop that shit.
>Rosario Vampire
Shit taste.
And you're surprised to not see a proper conclusion to a harem? How new are you?

Lurk more or fuck off. Your choice.
