Asuna GIFSET Part 2

Been feeling really “Asuna deprived” this last season of SAO II, so I decided to make a gifset filled with the strong and beautiful Yuuki Asuna! :)

Ōkami-san and her Seven Companions - Ōkami Ryōko

She looks like a matured Taiga from Toradora!

Asuna GIFSET part one

I’ve been feeling really “Asuna deprived” this last season of SAO II, so I decided to put together this gifset full of great Asuna Yuuki moments! I love Sinon and her character but I miss Asuna. She’ll always be my number one!

You are my trusted Gruvia guide...I just finished chatting with someone who claims that Hiro Mashima apparently said he prefers Graylu but would rather cater to the fans by giving us Gruvia. I've only been a part of this fandom for a few months so I have to ask if you know anything about this.

Aww that’s lovely, anon! And whoever it was you were chatting with was lying to you. Mashima never stated any such thing, and if this person still claims that he did, ask them to show some place where he stated it (a scan, or an interview, or a tweet of his etc.), because they wont be able to, since it doesn’t exist.

In fact, the only time Mashima mentioned a preference for a Gray pairing, was when a fan asked him on twitter if he liked Gray and Juvia together, and he said he does like the combination of the two, and he also likes their current one-sided relationship, but who knows what will happen between them in the future. And that last bit was said in a very teasing tone. ^__~

Mashima’s tweet:

If Mashima was truly going by popularity, and trying to please the fans, then Gray and Lucy would have happened over Gruvia, and/or Mashima would have created some kind of love triangle between Natsu, Lucy and Gray. Because, before the Tenroujima arc, Gray and Lucy was a far more popular ship than Gruvia. Juvia was not a prominent character at all prior to that arc, and was in fact missing from two arcs back-to-back. Additionally, Juvia’s feelings for Gray were widely viewed as just a comedic crush that would go no where (I certainly felt that way at the time). So, many people did not take is seriously, and therefore did not ship it.

So, as you can see, if Mashima was doing things to simple appease the fans, then Gray and Lucy would have been pushed rather than Gruvia making progress. IMO, the second Juvia was introduced into the story, Mashima had already decided on her being Gray’s love interest, and it was just a matter of time before he started expanding on both their relationship, and Juvia’s role in the series. 

And Gruvia is only so popular now because Mashima himself made it so. He has created all these moments, and constantly developed their relationship, and gave people many reasons to ship it. So, the fans actually are following Mashima’s lead, not the other way around. Gruvia is popular and gets featured as much as it does because Mashima wants it to be so. HE likes Gruvia. He is the captain of the Gruvia ship hee! ^^
