Was wondering how long it'd be before Calli's outfit from that video popped up here.

God that was such a damn good video too. It being a collab with Deco*27 already had me super hyped, but that animation absolutely blew me away. I think I need to go watch it again now.

didn't these two "break up"? just asking

^Kiara wanted to force the "Takamori" dynamic less, and have her following not go so hard with it. So she could have a more natural relationship with Calli, and chat/social media/so fourth would stop doing things like scream "NTR" every time Kiara flirts with another girl. That's about the gist I recall, though it's been a long time since then. I do know when it happened Kiara said it's still fine for people to draw Takamori fanart.

So yeah, we still get ship art of them, Kiara flirts with a lot of people, and her interactions with Calli have been more natural.

^Was a good decision also. Calli and Kiara have great chemistry when they're just being natural together, with the forced Takamori stuff just being meh outside of a handful of moments. The Takamori dynamic works much better in fanart and such than it does with the real people.

It's a shame that a handful of people were outrageously toxic about the whole thing, but this is the internet so not much you can do about it.

^Definitely agreed. Ships can be fun, but ship culture often very quickly gets hostile and sets fandoms on fire unfortunately.

^"often"? Always. As a premier Shipper I have seen things. Seen ships burn, drown in tears and blood. Shipping ends in fire always.

^Now that's just the fucking truth, shipping real people to the extent these two were shipped never works

@Sufficient Agony I can't really disagree, I was just trying to not generalize too much is all haha
