It amazes me that we have more HonoNico works than HonoEri, or even canonical couples: HonoKoto (anime), or HonoUmi (manga and others).

On the other hand, I can understand why people might like this couple. After all, when we meet Nico, the girl is a closed-off loner who can't get over a failure from the past (those rearranging posters at home and lying to her siblings are the best confirmation of that).

Honoka pulls her out of this confinement. She gives her a real chance to make her dream come true.

On top of that, the Honk was the originator of this concert for her siblings, allowing the Nico to finally come to terms with her past and move on.

For a couple that no one outside Japan would consider, not a bad foundation.

Oh, and of course Honoka's personality, which makes the Ginger immune to this tsundere bullshit. Putting up with something like this is not easy.

These two bakas would probably be very happy with each other.

@Dobromir, agreed.

It just goes to show the popularity of Nico. People like shipping her. Tsundere is like blue jeans - it goes with everything.

Plus she's kind of a classic underdog - the hard worker with a chip on her shoulder because she doesn't have special talent like some around her. She doesn't get respected enough, so she overcompensates with attitude, pretense, and jaded grit. She can seem selfish and full of herself, but in reality she's a responsible and reliable child of hardship who is devoted to her family, knows the importance of success, and determined to not let life walk all over her. People root for that.

I also think Honoka is criminally under-shipped. She's the cutest, pluckiest, most irresistable protagonist ever foisted on an ensemble cast and deserves more attention.
