Marichat, Ladynoir, Adrienette and Ladrien: Who is your OTP?

//

“OTP: Shipping anyone, anytime.”

You should never underestimate a fangirl.  We’re lurking in every corner of the Earth and then some. Like Pennywise the clown, we’ll find the smallest ounce of fear and then feed on it if we feel attacked. Or just for the Lol’s. Okay, maybe not that far, but we are pretty serious when it comes to us and our OTP. For those of you who don’t know what OTP means, it stands for One True Pair and it’s generally a term for a pairing or a couple that a person prefers more than the other.

While this article is about Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir, I thought I’d make a point by using the anime, Inuyasha. There’s was a previous article about it here but it didn’t go anywhere near the extent of this blog post. OTP’s in Inuyasha are generally Inuyasha and Kagome, Inuyasha and Kikyou, Kagome and Kouga, Kouga and Ayame and Sango and Miroku.

There are tons of others but those are just a few of the top of my head. Now, when Rumiko Takashi wrote the manga, in the beginning, it showed more of a deep friendship than a relationship. As the tv series was progressed and movies were made, the anime showed more of the romantic side of Inuyasha and Kagome, causing fans to fall madly in love with the hanyou and choose their OTP. Nothing was canon until the final acts(with exception of Sango and Miroku).

Now onto Ladybug and Chat Noir! 

Now, with Ladybug and Chat Noir there are some definite headcanons there. It’s almost comical and a little frightening to see which side people choose to be on with their OTP in one of the world’s most frustrating love squares of all time.

I’ll start with Ladrien. It tends to have a smaller following, though not as small as the following of shippers that pair Marinette/Ladybug with ANYONE other Adrien/Chat Noir.

Then, with a slightly larger following is Adrienette.

The third highest would be LadyNoir which are both superheroes together.

And of course, the highest following is MariChat. Seriously if you’re reading fanfiction of any kind, most of the pairings tend to be about Marinette and Chat Noir. My theory about this is that fanfiction writers tend to be more female than male, and this means they see themselves as Marinette. Which is relatable because who doesn’t relate to our lovable, clumsy Parisian Superhero?

I definitely find myself in the Marichat pairing. They are my OTP, even though they are indeed the same freaking people as Ladybug and Adrien. I just want my precious cinnamon roll children to be HAPPY. And together.

*Mild Spoilers for Season 2*

In the new season of Ladybug and Chat Noir, we met a new character named Kagami who Adrien actually seemed to take an interest in. We had been warned by Thomas Astruc that there would be two new love interests appearing. Luka, Juleka’s brother is also going to be apart of this little love triad and it’s making fans everywhere, myself included, only scream in frustration.

Why can’t our children just be happy?!

Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug and Chat Noir has exploded in the fandom world. With the addition of the newest “love interests”, fans everywhere are wondering who will be canon. For those non-fangirls, canon means that the writer confirmed a scene in the show or manga/comic, while headcanon’s are what fans believe.

It has been a while since I let a show completely take over my soul. I mean, I’m OBSESSED with this show and seriously can’t get enough. I’ve dove head first into this world, learning the origins, buying all the merch I can get my fangirling hands-on and cosplaying all the characters. A friend and I were actually talking about doing a Hawkmoth cosplay as well and I can’t wait to try it out!

Who is your OTP? Let me know in the comments below and in the meantime, I’ll be reading and writing more fanfiction for my beautiful children.

As always, keep smiling!
