I freaking loved it! Not something I would usually watch, but I'm so glad I did. I loved how they did Diana too, it was top notch work.

 I don't think I'll ever understand the "shipping" phenomenon.  Then again I didn't get pet rocks or pokemon go either.  :D  As long as you're having fun it's all good.

"Shipping" (as in relationshipping.. not that that's a word) is the activity or desire to create relationships between characters, usually romantic, and usually where there is no such relationship in the original work.  (Or works.. nothing says the matchups have to be from the same show.)  'Shipping has been going on forever (at least one wiki cites Kirk/Spock from Star Trek as being an example of an early "ship", or paired couple), but it seems especially common in anime, and especially in fanfiction, where the author(s) of the original work have even been known to incorporate fan-created 'ships into the mainstream/canon work.

So, in the original post for example, "shipping diakko" would be imagining Diana and Akko from LWA as a couple.

That's the "what", at least as I understand it.  As for the "why".. you'll have to get someone else to help with that question.  :)

Not trying to derail the thread here but I thought I could pitch my ten cents on this one. I feel that shipping characters almost always produces an emotional reaction in the person doing the shipping. If you look deeper here and ask yourself why we as humans get so attached to certain characters in the first place, it's because we empathise with those characters in some way or another. That's why you might cry when the writers kill off so-and-so's parent. You're experiencing an emotional reaction to that fictional character as if they were somebody you knew personally. That said, when two characters seem like they might have feelings for each other, that empathy emerges and you become emotionally invested in this unresolved romantic tension. That's why shipping happens. Even if you think it's crazy, it happens nonetheless and is perfectly psychologically normal.

In any case, I came here really to say that I just adore Sucy. She's my favourite. It's been a hot minute since I've actually sat down and watched LWA, and I have some catching up to do. Overall however, the anime is super cute and refreshing. I also like that the anime isn't afraid to show Akko's flaws- for example, she is quick to jump to conclusions and can be very immature at times. But she can also learn from her mistakes and grow from them. Meanwhile they are able to portray Diana as not only her rival, but a very level-headed and calm character in comparison. For an anime with such a tame rating, I think it's doing quite well in touching on character development without being overly dramatic.

I recently watched this anime earlier this year and I loved it to be honest. :) The clumsiness of the Main Character is not at all annoying to an extent where you'd like to see her fall off her broom. I like the part in the story where she has to face this calm rival who seems to be perfect and later on finding the truth about her character and discovering that somehow they are quite similar (Little spoiler alert) . The subtle love story is also my favorite element. The subtlety was too much to take in and at the same time good for the heart compared to all those mushy stuffs we often see on other animes.  And to be honest, somehow you can find yourself loving to see the Main Character suffer (even if you're not sadistic) and seeing her react if ever things don't go her way because it's natural and close to real life. We don't always get what we want in life and that's an essence that we have to look into. :)
