Home from Tokyo, will get cracking on a bunch of replies now. In the meantime: I looked at the list of pairings on the cover of this dojinshi and felt like a really, really undeveloped fannish person because I only know how to ship mere humans. I should get more practice at looking at the world around me and finding the shipping angle in everything.

cover of a dojinshi with a list of anthropomorphic pairings on it

(Mukibutsu Anthology 7, multiple authors)

And this is just one book in a series of large thick anthologies about objects getting it on. Anthropomorphic (gijinka) manga have been all the rage for several years now, ever since Hetalia: I don't remember if Hetalia started it or if it was simply the most succesful representative of the trend. I bought a bunch in the beginning - the ones with the antropomorphic trains and the antropomorphic Japanese prefectures and the antropomorphic condiments and the antropomorphic fast food restaurants - because the idea seemed novel and possibly interesting, but most of them were pretty boring comedy stuff with some nudge-nudge-wink-wink hints at shipping. The stories in this dojinshi are not boring. Clearly, all that was necessary to get me extremely interested in shoeshine/shoes was the addition of explicit and, um, fully realized shipping.
