004 [video, canon update]  
[The feed opens showing nothing but a cardboard cut-out of an animanga character which someone, off-screen, can be heard apologising to. That apology soon sees two heads peer around the cut-out - one being Erika, the other being a blond male. Neither appears particularly impressed, but that soon changes as Erika speaks]

Oh, it's Kida-kun.

[The image pulls back enough to show two younger boys - one blond, one with black hair. The blond, Kida-kun, is the one who responds]

Hey, Karisawa-san and Yumasaki-san. How's it going?

Hey, long time no see.

ooc cut for length )

[ooc: First canon update for Erika. Bold is Erika, normal is Walker or Kadota, italics is Kida or Mikado. Video of the scene here, starts at 6:44, ends at 8:32 or so]

First of all, I should probably apologise for my last post here.
I mean, I don't regret it but I also wasn't acting like myself so, you know.
That's not even the point of why I'm here but since I am here, I thought I should say something.

The actual point of my being here is to pose a question to you, community.
As you know, I enjoy shipping in all of its forms, though I have my preferences, and I know I'm not the only one who does.
But has anyone ever stopped to wonder what the most popular ships are around here? Because I have, and that's why I come to you now.

This is how this is going to work: you guys list your favourite community pairings - anonymously, so don't worry about people thinking you're weird or anything. Also, if you see a pairing that someone else has put that you agree with, go ahead and second it. There is a second part to this, but I think that can be explained another time.

You have...let's say you have a week, community time. That should be plenty of time, right?

[ooc: So based on this thread, Erika and Harumi are planning a "perfect pairings" poll. All nominations/secondings should be done anon ICly and Erika won't be responding to them. But do feel free to WTF at her as well!]

[Erika's staring at the screen will ill-disguised bemusement]

All right. I've been puzzling over this for over an hour now and I still don't understand what's going on here. See, first I thought it was a gang thing except that ducks don't strike me as being very intimidating, not even ones that can turn into princesses. Maybe if they turned into giant robot magical girls...

Anyway, so then I thought, if that was it then why would you come to me first? So I rang Dotachin to see if he knew anything about it and he told me to stop making up such silly rumours and if this were something we needed to worry about he would have told us. Which is true. That's why he's the boss.

So then I tried thinking about what I was doing when this got in the way, and then I thought hey, maybe it's some new series that's only just been announced and if that was the case, well, it would be rude of me to keep that to myself. So I phoned Walker and apparently he has no idea what I'm talking about and when I tried to help him find the site he said it didn't exist. And really, surely any marketing company knows the point of going viral is that anyone can see it if they know where to look. So if that's what's going on here, shame on you for trying to divide your audience.

But then I looked closer, and it's like hang on, these characters already exist. So...what, is this some sort of roleplay or cosplay thing? Should I have picked a character to be when I said all this? I don't think I've ever seen anything like this before. And I'm not sure why it won't go away, either, and I've even tried restarting my computer...this isn't a virus, is it? Some sort of cult-recruitment virus that suckers people in by refusing to go away until they swear their undying loyalty to some unknown leader? Because I know of people who wouldn't be above trying that sort of thing...is there even anyone else from Ikebukuro here or am I the first? Because either way, I'm not sure why you'd pick me and not the others unless you're trying to sway me away from them, and I can tell you now that won't work.

...That got pretty long, huh? I guess the short version is, can anyone tell me what's going on here?
