I think the saddest part about Ginji x Aoi (銀葵)* is that up to a certain point, Ginji had a 100% chance of getting Aoi, but this ship will sink because this boy is too good for his own good.

Whether or not he is the Kind Ayakashi, Ginji was the first one
to be there for Aoi when she came to the hidden realm, the first ayakashi Aoi
trusted there, and the one who kept supporting her since day one. (Oodanna supported Aoi since the beginning too but the thing about that is that he did it behind the scenes and Aoi wasn’t aware. If I recall correctly, Aoi was wary of Oodanna in the beginning, but not of Ginji. so bonus points for my boi!)

You can tell
that Aoi feels comfortable around him and cares about him. (She’s constantly
thinking about him and how he’s doing) Don’t even get me started on Ginji. I just love their interactions with each
other, they just act so natural. Based on that, I would say that they look like
a married couple the most. Both Aoi and Ginji started Moonflower and worked together
for it to succeed. If Ai is the child of Oodanna x Aoi, then Moonflower is the
child of Ginji x Aoi! lol

You can also tell that Aoi depends on Ginji, she needs him by
her side. Just look at everything that happened and how she reacted when they were taking Ginji away. She will go to great lengths to get him back, even getting herself in risky situations, she wants him back in Tenjin-ya no
matter what! (even has “selfish” thoughts about asking him to come back but
stops herself, and when asked what she would do if Ginji doesn’t want to go
back, she says that she *might* give up and well we know how Aoi is lol) I know
Aoi has helped a lot of ayakashi but it feels different when it comes to Ginji. The question is: 

Is Aoi just giving back to the one
who’s always been there for her or does Aoi have feelings towards
 I think it’s a little bit of both, I think she unconsciously likes or is
in love with Ginji based on her actions up until now. (Most likely just a crush that will fade after she falls 100% for Oodanna) If it wasn’t already obvious, episode 19 pretty much confirmed it for me.

(I really wonder what would have happened if Ranmaru wouldn’t have interrupted them when Aoi stopped Ginji after he refused her help.)

Will Ginji realize his feelings for Aoi? Most likely
yes. (Probably too late and it will be unrequited)

I think that in a scenario where Ginji were to tell Aoi that he loves her, Aoi would hands down choose Ginji. 😂 Sadly, that’s unlikely to happen lol GinAoi will most likely remain as good friends and be an unrequited love from Ginji’s part.**

Will we have a love triangle? Most
likely not.

Why not? Up until now, Ginji has had the advantage over Oodanna, but as of
recently, we have seen the development between Oodanna x Aoi. Aoi went from
being wary of him to learning more about him, respecting him and slowly
accepting him.

Does Aoi love Oodanna? I think for a while now, what Aoi has
been feeling towards Oodanna has been familial love. She even compares him to her grandpa at some point lol but it’s hard not to fall
for that handsome ogre god who’s constantly showing her how much she means to him
and saying things that make her blush. Oodanna is a smooth motherfucker.
lol He knows what he wants and he wastes no time in making his move. Aoi’s
feelings will surely, eventually, become romantic. (What I mean is that she will become aware that what she feels is romantic love because right now she hasn’t realized it yet.)

the other hand, Ginji is too good for his own good. He’s always been there for Aoi and most likely is in love with her, but hasn’t realized it yet. (I mean, have you seen him when he’s with her or the expression he makes when Aoi talks fondly about Oodanna? Unless there’s something going on, then I say that he has feelings for her!) Given the great lengths Aoi has gone for him, I think GinAoi just needs one small push and that’s it.** Ginji won’t make a move right now though because based on his personality, he’s trying not to get Aoi involved and keep her safe, not to mention he’s busy with the ceremony. (This of course is an advantage for Oodanna as he gets to spend more time with Aoi, helping her come to terms with how she really feels about him) Also, Ginji has an immense respect
for Oodanna and he deeply cares about Aoi which means that he wouldn’t act on his
feelings if he sees those two have mutual feelings for each other. (Probably) He will always keep supporting Aoi.

That’s the difference between
Ginji and Oodanna and why one relationship will progress into mutual love and the
other one will stay where it is, and be an unrequited love. Ginji’s personality, what I love the most about
his character, is also what’s going to sink this ship and that ultimately
breaks my heart lol   

銀葵* = GinAoi is what I saw most of the posts from the JP
fandom that ship Ginji x Aoi had, so I will be calling this ship like this. Feel free to correct me. ^_^

** =  Of course, these scenarios I speak of would have been ideal earlier in the story or before Aoi’s feelings for Oodanna were clear to her.

Everything I wrote may seem a little bias towards Ginji (probably), but fun fact: I also ship Oodanna x Aoi lol OoAoi is my canon ship, GinAoi is my AU ship and I don’t see anything wrong with that.

I just like suffering, that’s all. At the end, I just want Ginji to be happy, but will this be possible? T_T It may sound ridiculous but I would be lying if I said my heart hasn’t been hurting about this whole thing for the past 2 days.

I have not read the novels, but I spent some time looking around yesterday and I’m just going to say that I really can’t wait to read Vol. 7!

Feel free to disagree, but please don’t be THAT one person that starts talking shit to others just because it’s not your ship. Everyone is free to have their opinions and this is mine based on what I’ve seen. lol Also, everyone can ship who they want without being toxic, don’t ya think?

Ginji & Ranmaru

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)

lol Okay no, this post is not about how the thought of shipping them crossed my mind! lmfao There’s a few things I want to point out from the new OP that may be related to the “ceremony”, to the relationship between Ginji & Ranmaru, and how it connects to my theory that the ayakashi that helped Aoi was Ginji

May contain spoilers from the anime. Please read at your own risk.

There seems to be more to the relationship between Ginji and Ranmaru.

In the OP we see a lot of Ginji & Ranmaru scenes where they are shown together:

We see what appears to be Ginji & Ranmaru coming from the direction of the blue lightning (storm?) and flying across Orio-ya/the Southern land (there seems to be a curse):


We see Ginji & Ranmaru as children. They seem close, so cute! (Childhood friends?):


We then see Ginji & Ranmaru again. This time they don’t seem to be in good terms/close what happened?!:


We are then shown Ginji before he transforms into his woman form. Everything points to him not wanting to do it (ceremony), but he has to T_T


The transition of the next 3 characters makes it seem as if they are ONE:

1. Ginji’s woman form (Note: Same blue light as Ginji, also see episode 1)


2. Ranmaru’s other form:


3. ???


My guesses as to who this third ayakashi is:

  • Ranmaru x Ginji form? (Note: It looks like Ginji’s woman form but in male, it has Ginji’s tails. He has a sword and so does Ranmaru, although it doesn’t seem to be the same sword)
  • Another form of Ginji? (Note: Same as above.)

  • Ginji’s woman form: Maybe I’m just blind and for some reason I thought it was male.
  • A different ayakashi: Perhaps Ginji and Ranmaru are necessary to perform the ceremony and awaken this ayakashi. 

Evidence that suggests it’s a Ginji x Ranmaru form:

LN Cover Vol. 5 (Note: What appears to be Ginji’s woman form and what she is holding: Suzu? bells. The hilt and ribbon looks like the same one from the sword that ayakashi in the OP has. Also has same clothes. Now look at Ranmaru and the item he is holding. So if Ginji & Ranmaru were to combine, it would also make sense that their items combine. Sword x Ribbon lol)


Jacket Illust. for the new opening. If after all the evidence you’re still not convinced that the woman is Ginji then take a look at this and then at the cover for the LN above. Look at the items they’re holding:


Here’s what we know:

  • Ginji has 9 forms, and we’ve only seen 4. His power/aura/flame is blue
  • Ginji & Ranmaru know each other since childhood. (Childhood Friends?)
  • There’s a curse in the Southern Land(?)
  • The ceremony is important
  • It seems the presence of Ginji is necessary for the “ceremony”. Ginji said the only reason he returned was because of that.
  • There was an agreement that Ginji would return to Orio-ya after working for 50 years at Tenjin-ya
  • Oodanna & Ginji made a promise

Perhaps because of the curse Ginji and Ranmaru are bound to the land and their duty is to perform the ceremony. It would explain why Ginji had to go back to Orio-ya. Why does Ginji look so sad about the whole thing, though? The other time I’ve seen him make that expression is when the topic about that ayakashi that helped Aoi is brought up. If Ginji was that ayakashi, was it bad that he helped her? That ayakashi told Aoi, “We will certainly meet again when you become an adult.” That ayakashi helped her because he was kind and not because he had ulterior motives, right? Maybe by helping Aoi he put her in danger and might be connected to this ceremony. Could this be related to his reason to agree to work at Tenjin-ya specifically for 50 years and the promise he made with Oodanna?

I’ve also thought about the possibility that the ayakashi that helped Aoi was the 3rd ayakashi shown in the OP aka the Ginji x Ranmaru form BUT this one is highly unlikely tbh. lol
