Happy Valentine's Day, Banpa! In honor of the holiday, here are some of my favorite Bandori ships.
A lot of the gibberish that I'm spewing below is mostly headcanons btw
Oh my gosh, it's just so adorable. Rimi looks up to Kasumi so much, and Kasumi's just so, so nice to her. They're so perfect. I bet that they've written songs for each other and cuddled together by a cozy fire. 10/10 ship.
iajnoidunvwoiuhnoguhg I love them so much. Kaoru puts up this princely persona all of the time, but I bet that when she sees Chisato, she get's weak in the knees and blushes a ton. And Chisato definitely likes her back and playfully teases her a ton. They would definitely go on a date in a rose garden and they would like ballroom-style dance together
I feel this ship gives off a lot of tropes like 'talkative x listener,' I could imagine either one of them rambling about their favorite things and the other one nodding along and asking questions about said favorite thing, and 'anxious x encouraging' because Mashiro gets a ton of anxiety and has low self-esteem, and Nanami would be there to cheer her up. I can imagine them geeking out about Sanrio characters :)
I'm curious, what are all of your favorite ships? I feel like all of the characters have such interesting relationships with each other and it's really interesting to see what ships people like :D
The upcoming pages will be created and working in progress.
Edit: If you don't have an account for Fandom, you can register here, please do not edit articles that I've created if you do not know about Gothic Underground characters or the Anime project.
Edit (09/05/2023): I decided to discontinue the Gothic Underground anime project since I have a lot of other things to do. I might still keep the characters Cocoa and Atsumi as my own female versions of Beavis and Butt-Head though. I know this post is from 3 years ago, but I decided to discontinue it anyway. Also, the wiki has been closed, and I decided to leave it closed anyway.
RANKING ALL MY FRIENDS BASED ON HOW LIKELY THEY ARE TO BUY ME BUNS.
You read the title. Let's get right into it.
Number 4: Himari Uehara
(pictured here is Hi-chan running away from me after I asked for buns.)
Here's the thing about Himari. She doesn't really care about bread at all. If I were to ask her right now to go get buns with me, she'd say "I'm on a NEW diet." And then she'd immediately go buy a new kind of dessert at the store. Also, I think she's still somewhat convinced I send all my calories to her, so there's that.
Number 3: Ran Mitake
(pictured here is Ran-chan's act of VIOLENCE after I would so INNOCENTLY ask for a nice little bun.)
Ran's great. But she's a friendship TSUNDERE, and you can quote me on that. If I were to ask her to buy me buns right now, she'd say "Buy them yourself." and just WALK AWAY. Ran also has points taken away for being the one who cares the least about hanging out with friends. I only put her above Hi-chan because she has a slightly higher success rate of buying me buns. This is because although she doesn't act like it, she knows she just can't say no to my little face. She does a lot, though.
Number 2: Tsugumi Hazawa
(actual footage of me lovingly taking Tsugu by the hand after she so graciously says yes to buying me buns. Also, I'm wearing a blue wig. That's why my hair is blue. Don't be fooled, it's MY hair.)
Hazawa Coffee is right by Yamabuki Bakery, so Tsugu has a distance advantage. If I were to ask her to buy me buns right now, she'd say, "Sure! I could go for a bun after I finish Student Council work!!". She's also the most likely to actively PAY for my meal. Sweet, sweet Tsugu-chan. The only 2 reasons she's not #1 are because my number 1 is so far ahead of the rest of the game, and also because Tsugu always has so much Student Council work, and is therefore busy for the great Bun Eating.
Number 1: Tomoe Udagawa
(Tomo-chin standing outside, waiting for me so we can get buns.)
You guys might be surprised with my choice. Buy let me say, Tomoe is the only person I know who comes close to loving food as much as me. If I were to ask her for buns right now, she'd say "Any time! But you have to pay, because you have all those Point Cards." (she's the only one who remembers I have Point Cards. I love her so much). After getting buns (she's got, like, a 70% chance of paying for me), we'd go get a boatload of ramen, and have the times of out lives. Overall, this is why Tomoe has the #1 spot DOWN.
Himari is "on a diet", Ran is "too cool to eat", Tsugu is "heart-warmingly nice", and Tomoe is "my food buddy 24/7". Does this not technically make Tomo-chin my best friend? HA HA, YOU GUYS, TOMOE IS MY NEW BEST FRIEND. I had fun doing this. Let me know if you want me to BRUTALLY RANK MY FRIENDS ON ANY OTHER CRITERIA. See ya guys, Moca-chan out ;)
GUYS AMITA IS BACK?? AYAYAYAYA!!! I’M SO HAPPY!! She was my favorite VA and I’m so glad that she feels well enough to return. Now they can finally release new songs as my favorite band! You guys have NO IDEA how excited I am!!
Above is an old-but-gold ordinary big star sticker.
let's join packing bag event
I have collected some funny stuffs from Banpa's post over half a decade, then jump into the event.
We have Michelle the Fish, Michelle the Eternal Peace-giver, a lot of stars and stars+, la guitare de Kasumi, Hagumi's monkey and the Arisa itabag of Olivinearc. Don't ban me for stealing many things OwO. Maybe Kasumi-chan likes this bag UwU.

Prizes and Judging
All participants on the website will receive a special badge for entering! The badge will include the art included at the top of this post which was drawn by Ahirukukiii on Twitter!
There will be prizes for both categories of entries (suitcases and stickers) and a judging panel will be used to choose a winning entry for both! We will be judging based on creativity for both categories.
The winning participant in each category will have a chance to receive a physical merch prize (or a digital prize if preferred)! Examples of physical merch are shown below:
Along with this, we have stretch goals for both categories. If we get a total of 10 entries (separate for each category), a randomly selected participant in each category will have the chance to win a digital prize! This can be a graphic edit or a special commission from one of our community artists!
For an extra special stretch goal, 30 participants (separate for each category) will give a randomly selected participant in each category a chance to win a physical prize (or digital prize if preferred)!
To sum it up, there is a chance for a maximum of 6 possible winners in this summer event!
We hope everyone will have fun with this event and we look forward to seeing sticker designs and suitcase packs for their favourite girls!
Shoutout to Chiyu for the mocatastic idea! Congrats, Chiyu, you've finally made an impact on this world.
Ha, that's just a little moca-chan joke, but we had to be in the same event together. Talk about difficult. My JOKES are to COPE with that. It's been a pretty boring day, but I gotta do my homework now. Himari's stopped letting me copy hers ever since I called Kaoru a joke. Moca-chan out ;)
