Sure we still have one more episode left, but now that the gang of Best Wishes has split, and more information is spilling out about the XY cast, this seems a pleasurable period to take into account, shipping.
Firstly, how did Best Wishes stand up as a series for its shipping to you? This is not about opinions on matters more external to shipping for the series, but the dynamics of the interactions between the characters in Best Wishes as whole. Did the shipping live up to your expectation, did anything pleasantly surprise you? Did it disappoint you, were there elements that were overlooked, in your view? How about the quality and quantity of the shippings in BW? Did it keep up to the standards of sagas prior, did it improve on them or did it simply lag behind? Whatever opinions you have, please do back them up by explaining them.
Now, for the second half, I've already seen so much hype and shipping speculation for XY; people have already formed headcanons! Some of us tend to sit back and watch it unfold cautiously before jumping into a shipping. Even though I do wish I could stick to that, there's nothing like a wishlist to go upon! Nothing too gravely serious, just some good ol' shipping fun, I suppose. So, from the information that has been gathered, what do you hope for in the XY Anime?
You can answer either questions, or both, just remember to include the reasons why for your statements.
