"Admit it, some of you have shipped before...so let's see which pairings they were. What is the One True Pairing of the series?"
Shipping is serious business, so this topic was started to figure out what pairings are acceptable to ship on OT. Aside from that, it also includes some annoying and pointless commentary from its creator.
The Basic Notes and Regulations involved are:
-I reserve the right to make my own judgment calls if I consider a post ambiguous, but if you use your common sense, there shouldn't be a problem. I cannot be expected to be well versed in every series.
-Voting ends when I make new topic, which will list the results of the previous topic.
-Yes, you can reserve series for specific days and request re-votes. A series will be re-done if it has at least 3 different people asking for it.
-Order on the Upcoming lists is order of nomination. However, I will change order if someone requests to reserve a series for a specific day. The first three series on the Upcoming list are automatically reserved for the next three days.
-Ties for the top positions will have all the tying pairings listed. Series with ties have priority if a re-vote for that series is called. Honorable mentions will be given to very very close seconds.
-As much fun as it would be to watch one erupt, I am legally obligated to ask that you do not start Shipping Wars

Selected In-Depth Results with CommentaryEdit
A few notable days will have some additional trivial information provided here.
- Day 1: Code Geass
The one that started it all. It was quite a controversial topic with over 80 votes cast and over 25 pairings suggested, setting several records that lasted quite a while before being broken. The in-depth results were:
Lelouch x Shirley: 18 (winner)
Lelouch x Kallen: 11
Orange x Loyalty: 10
Lelouch x Suzaku: 8
Lelouch x CC: 6
Nevertheless, Lelouch x Shirley was still a solid win, having nearly double that of 2nd and 3rd place
- Day 2 and 3, Tsukihime and Evangelion
Creator mispells Akiha as Akira, causing mass confusion and panic. Also notable was that both Day 2 and Day 3 ended in ties.
- Day 4: Higurashi
What was noticeable about this one was the winner received 20 votes, dethroning Lelouch x Shirley's 18 for the record of most votes cast. Second place was considerably close, which when coupled with the fact most other pairings received only 1 to 2 votes, earned it an honorable mention. Out of 50 votes cast:
Keiichi x Rena: 20 (winner)
Keiichi x Mion: 14
- Day 6: Sora no Otoshimino
Notable in that the winning Ikaros x Watermelon set a new record for biggest win based on ratio of votes to total votes, with 4/7, and biggest win relative to second place, with 4 times the number of second place. It probably helped that there were only seven votes, and the other three were to three different pairings.
- Day 10: Negima!
Konoka x Setsuna's 22 broke Keiichi x Mion's record of 20 and beat Ikaros x Watermelon's record of 4 times second place (second place to Konoka x Setsuna was Negi x Chisame's 5). 42 votes were cast in total, meaning Konoka x Setsuna 11/21 also broke Ikaros x Watermelon's 4/7 record. With so many records broken, Konoka x Setsuna is probably one of the biggest landslide victories in the history of the series thus far.
- Day 12: Bible Black
Record for least number of votes cast with 3 (later broken by Day 34: Sherlock Hound's 2, as seen below). The creator was not amused. OT likes to talk about Bible Black, but apparently very few have actually watched it.
- Day 14: Seitokai no Ichizon
Unique in that the winner was not an OTP but an OT5, it also shattered several old records, including biggest ratio to total votes with 9/10 and biggest win relative to second place, with 9 times the number of votes second place received.
- Day 17 and 18: Digimon Adventure and Digimon Adventure 02
A controversial topic as some voters questioned why the two seasons had been separated, and the creator could ultimately only give the weak answer of "they were nominated as separate, and this also gives the younger characters introduced in 02 a bigger chance to shine." Also notable as the only two topics for the creator himself (or herself) to vote in, both times for TK x Kari. Day 17 in particular was a close one, but honorable mentions are reserved only for close seconds relative to firsts and thirds. However, since this "in-depth" section exists: out of 43 votes cast,
Matt x Sora: 15 (winner)
TK x Kari: 12
Tai x Sora: 10
Day 17 was also notable as the first series to be nominated for a revote, perhaps due to the controversy of several Matt x Sora supporters commenting that their votes were made "just for the rage." Day 18's Davis x Noodle cart tying with TK x Kari (both received 13 out of 40 total) is somehow perfectly acceptable though...Seriously, the creator almost quit out of disappointment and disgust in OT after seeing the results for Day 17 and 18, but was pacified by the fact that at least OT was smart enough to not cast even a single vote to Davs x Kari.
Day 18 also featured the first ever attempt of a single account to vote more then once, featuring one post that listed "TK x Kari" five times, followed shortly by "Is that enough?"
- Day 21: Persona 3
Notable as the first topic for foul play to be suspected, when one voter voiced his concerns that many votes for MC x Yukari might have been made by alt accounts. Despite these concerns, MC x Aigis was still a solid winner, winning 18 votes out of 37 total cast.
MC x Aigis: 18 (winner)
MC x Yukari: 12
- Day 23: Naruto
Notable in that it beat several previous records, including topic ending with most posts with 91 (beating Day 1 Code Geass's 87) and most votes tallied with 86 (beating Day 1 Code Geass's 85). Also notable as possibly the closest victory ever.
Naruto x Sasuke: 34
Naruto x Hinata: 33
Note that both 34 and 33 break Konoka x Setsuna's record of 22, which was made back in Day 10, Negima.
Also notable was that Day 23 would be the last day for the full Past Results to be posted in the topics themselves, as the wiki archive was formally introduced on Day 24, as space was finally starting to run out.
- Day 25: Bleach
Basically another Day 23 all over again, closing with 92 posts (beating Day 23 Naruto's 91) and a respectable 70 votes tallied. The topic also put forth 25 suggested pairings, coming close to Day 1 Code Geass's record of 27.
Aizen x Kubo: 13
Ichigo x Orihime: 10
Yoruichi x Soifon: 7
Urahara x Yoruichi: 6
Ichigo x Rukia: 6
- Day 29: Ar Tonelico
In honor of April Fools Day, instead of listing the proper Past Results, the topic instead listed these:
Day 1, Code Geass: OT x ****ing Rolo
Day 2, Tsukihime: Shiki x Arika Day 3, Evangelion: Shinji x Vat of acid
Day 4, Higurashi: Keiichi x Harem
Day 5, School Days: Makoto x Everyone

Day 26, Death Note: Matsuda x Seyu
Day 27, Pokemon: Ash x Delia
Day 28, Pokemon Special: Ruby x Sapphire, Red x Yellow, Red's Pikachu x Yellow's Pikachu 3-way tie
- Day 30: Gamefaqs: Anime and Manga - Other Titles
The creator mistakenly writes "Today we have Pokemon Special" instead of "Today we have Gamefaqs: Anime and Manga - Other Titles" at the end of the topic.
- Day 34: Sherlock Hound
The apparant nominator of the series posts "I'll admit I nominated this for trolling." Would explain why there were only 2 votes cast, setting a record low.
- Day 36: Princess Tutu
First ever unanimous decision, with all 7 votes cast going to Fakir x Ahiru.
- A "Day 17" Rerun: Digimon Adventure
The first redo topic ever done, notable due to the controversy of whether a redo should have been done, and to the fact that its results were almost a complete reversal of the original results:
Tai x Sora: 17 (winner)
Matt x Sora: 8
TK x Kari: 3
Mimi x Joe: 2
Also notable was the first ever disqualification of a vote, on the grounds of the user attempting to start a Shipping War.
- Day 50: Tales of Vesperia
The creator mistaknely writes "Day 49" instead of "Day 50."
- Day 56: Tokko
Tied with Day 34's record low of 2 votes, and set a new record for least number of posts at topic's close, with 3 (and that's counting the first one from the TC).
- Day 64: Gravion
Record low of 1 vote and 2 posts at topic's close (including first one from TC).
- Day HIJACK: Boy Meets World
Around the time of Day 68, Mister_Feeney declares "Endless Frontier sucks, so hijack time."
- Day 83: Fatal Fury
Record low of 0 votes and 1 post at topic's close (being the first one from TC).
- Day 92, Char's Counterattack
Record for largest tie, with a 5-way tie
- Day 107: Miyazaki movies
