Hm? Oh! Ironically enough I haven’t really answered this question since I got into the fandom. Story time kids.
It all started last August so you can say that I started shipping the pairing a year and a half ago.(Yeah I was kind of late in the fandom ‘ID) I started reading bleach around 5 years ago and stopped when they went to save Rukia because I didn’t really have much free time due to school, and no PC to begin with. I of course loved Ichigo and Rukia together and it was when Gin died so I knew about him and Rangiku too.Funny thing is,I loved Orihime as a character and I wanted to ship her with someone who has a fair amount of chemistry with her but I didn’t know anyone at that time.(Ishida was okay I guess but I never really had that “major OTP feeling. More like “okay I don’t really care that much”
I was kind out of OTPs at that time, so I was browsing stuff on the internet because I was bored. And I ended up of fakku in the bleach section somehow.(Yes kids I am a pervert in case you haven’t noticed.Moving on~) The first thing I saw that caught my attention besides from the huge breasts was a well drawn Grimmhime doujin.(Before anyone says anything,NO I DO NOT SHIP SOMETHING UNLESS I SEE SOME EVIDENCE IN THE ACTUAL SERIES TO SHIP IT) I knew about Grimmjow(but not the other espadas) so I thought”for people to ship it,they have to have some interaction.” And I looked around for other Grimmhimme doujinshis and info about the pairing. What I found was a bit dissapointning,since the only “evidence” about this couple was the chapters where he saves her from Loly and Menoly and then forces her to heal Ichigo.As much as I love Grimmjow he was a bit too brutal for my liking and I didn’t really see much interraction there…
In one doujin I found on DA there was another black haired guy who fell in love with Orihime but she eventually choose Grimmjow obviously. So I was like ” Okay this guy is pretty but who is he? His name is Ulquiorra? Why people ship him with Orihime? I will look it up” So i googled Ulquiorra Orihime on google and I came across the hand scene on youtube. And then…CHAOS.
It was like…. I don’t know how to describe it. Something like “AND AT LAST I SEEEE THE LIIIIIIIIGHT~ AND ITS’ LIKE THE FOOOOG HAS LIFTEEEEEEEEED~”
Once I start shipping something NOTHING can change my mind.I fucking love this pairing.Nuff said.
About their characters now. Come on do I have to say it? SHE.GAVE.HIM.A.HEART. She cared enough for him to reach TWICE towards him and cry for him.Even Ichigo said how devastated she looked and we know that the guy is really thick to even notice her feelings so it must have been REALLY apparent.
We know from the relationship chart that Ulquiorra was in love with her and we know that Orihime at least cared for him a lot.She doesn’t blame him.Her own brother became a hollow and tried to kill her, she knows the pain. Not to mention all the facial expressions Ulquiorra made during the Lust arc. Fucking. look. at.his.eyes!!! Even if you are not an artist and you don’t care about details you have to be blind to miss that.
Let me demostrate.
This is the face of “The fuck are you two doing to the woman” Even though she was “useless to Aizen”
Also when he blocked the attack ” I didn’t do it for you two” THERE WAS ONLY THEM AND ORIHIME THERE. So for WHO did you do it Ulquiorra?
This is the face of “yeah I am paying SOOOO much attention to my enemy right now.Fuck off Ichigo the woman is in danger’
THIS IS NOT THE FACE OF GIVING UP!NOT THE FACE OF “MY LIFE HAS NO MEANING ANYMORE.”IT’S THE FACE OF PROTECTING SOMETHING IMPORTANT TO YOU!
And this is the face of RELIEF. OF “I MADE IT IN TIME.” OF IF ULQUIORRA DIDN’T CUT OFF ICHIGO’S HORN, ORIHIME WOULD BE FUCKING DEAD BECAUSE OF ICHIGO, AND AIZEN WOULD RULE OVER, WHILE A RAMPAGING HICHIGO WOULD ROAM AROUND LAS NOCHES(Yes maybe I will do somethng like that as a comic someday,it would be cool.No i wont kill her off XD.) Ichihime fans seem to forget about THE FACT THAT ULQUIORRA SAVED ORIHIME FROM “The love of her life” SHE WOULD BE DEAAAAD.
AND OH MY GOD THE MOST HEARTWRENCING FACE OF THEM ALL THAT MAKES ME CRY EVERYTIME.”WOMAN I SAVED YOU, WHY ARE YOU GOING TO HIM” SSDFGFSASA YOU POOR BBY COME HERE YOU DESERVE A HUG ;A;
ULQUIORRA DOES HAVE EMOTONS. YOU HAVE TO KNOW WHERE TO LOOK. HE RECOGNISED ORIHIME AS A STRONG WOMAN AND NOT AS SOMEONE WHO NEEDS PROTECTION. HE SEES THE TRUE HER. ORIHIME IS A STRONG WOMAN WHEN SHE IS WITH HIM. I LOVE KICKASS ORIHIME! SHE IS AMAZING! SHE CAN HELP HIM UNDERSTAND LOVE AND THE CONCEPT OF THE HEART AND HE IN RETURN WILL VALUE HER FOR WHAT SHE IS. NOT INOUE-SAN”,NOT “STAY OUT OF THIS BATTLE CAUZ YOU ARE WEAK AND SHIT” BUT AS “ORIHIME” AS A WHOLE PERSON.
FUCK IT NOW I AM CRYING OH MY GOD THIS FUCKING OTP IS RUINING MY LIFE,EXCUSE ME WHILE I GO AND SIT IN MY CORNER CRYING WHILE I THINK ABOUT MORE IDEAS ABOUT THIS OTP.
I DON’T CARE THAT PEOPLE TELL ME THAT ULQUIORRA IS DEAD,UNTIL I SEE THE FUCKING END OF THE MANGA I WON’T BELIEVE IT. KUBO SAID HE IS “ASH IN THE WIND’
YOU DON’T SAY? NO SHIT WE DIDN’T SEE THAT IN THE ACTUAL MANGA. HE DIDINT SAY THAT HE WAS “DEAD” WHY WAS ULQUIORRA THE ONLY ONE WHO TURNED INTO ASH AND EVERY OTHER ESPADA JUST LAY THERE DEAD?
SO FUCK EVERYTHING I WILL SHIP IT TILL THE DAY I DIE.
