This is a blog dedicated to the pairing Nara Shikamaru & Yamanaka Ino (ShikaIno) from the manga and anime series Naruto/Naruto Shippuden.


I noticed there’s a lack of Shikamaru with untied hair in this world… let me take care of that!~



some Naruto WIPs waiting in my folders… I should finish them soon before I forget! ;//3//;~

now I have to tag everyone…

How did you draw this !!! Its so awesome @_@

ShikaIno month - Day 6: Sweetest scene together?
Ino: Are you some kind of genius? (Ep. 315)
ShikaIno month - Day 5: Favorite Anime moment?
Inoichi: Which one did you pick? Shikamaru or Chouji? (Ep. 239)
ShikaIno month - Day 4: Favorite Manga moment?
Shikamaru: Why did you ever marry such a strict woman?
Shikakau: Well... Your mom has times when she's happy and cheerful too.
ShikaIno month - Day 3: When I started to ship them?

Honestly, ShikaIno wasn’t my first ship for Shikamaru. (๑•́₋•̩̥̀๑)

When I was just a little girl, my sister introduced Naruto to me for the first time. I was really excited with all the characters, the fights, the friendship, the history, but I wasn’t really interested about things like ships. So I started to ship what my sister shipped and believe what she believed to be a good ship (SasuSaku, NaruHina and ShikaTema). At the time, I didn’t have strong feelings about these couples, I was just  really following my sister’s opinions.

One day, I decided to re-watch Naruto alone, without anyone saying things like “look how cute they are” or “they will totally make adorable babies someday”. When I was re-watching, I paid more attention to what the characters did or said. And then I saw the ShikaIno. And it became clear to me that they were a cute couple and that they would definitely end up together someday. This happened in august 2008

Since then I became completely obsessed over these two nerds, and I’m not even sorry, haha.

ShikaIno month - Day 2: Why they are meant to be together?

To talk about their fate and other things, we must first talk about their background. (´ω`★)

  • Ino-Shika-Chou 1st generation: Is just pretty much intriguing that the 2nd generation has one girl on the team. 
  • Even so different from each other, they have the same ideals: Although they were not best friends as children and had different personalities, somehow they managed to have the same ideals and do the same things (ex: Ino saving Sakura and Shikamaru saving Chouji). And this is awesome. And cute.
  • Shikaku x Yoshino & Asuma x Kurenai: It’s interesting to see how the relationship between Shikamaru and Ino is so much alike the relationship of the two most important couples in their lives. (ShikaYoshi: They are practically the same, when it comes to their personalities and attitudes.) (AsuKure: Childhood friends turned into lovers.)
  • The Deer and the Blush Clover: So basically there’s this popular Japanese poem that says “The deer that weds the autumn bush clover (…)”, and oh! What a “coincidence”, cuz you know, Shikamaru’s symbol is a deer and Ino’s symbol is a Blush Clover!

So yeah, I do believe that they are destined for each other.
