In Another Life, Bokuto and Akaashi Are a BL Couple!

BokuAka is canon, and you cannot tell me otherwise

Whenever we see BokuAka on screen, we feel like we're on cloud 9!

There are no words to describe the bond that Bokuto and Akaashi have. But what we do know is that seeing them onscreen together absolutely gets us going!

If they were to live in an alternate universe, they'd probably be a couple! And, of course, they'd have a happy ending together, no death or whatnot. (I'm looking at you, Little Luxray!)

Now, before everyone starts charging at me for their therapy, I'd like to state my argument. Here's why I think BokuAka would be a canon couple in a BL anime!

They Are Already Living the Domestic Life

Domestic BokuAka? Sign me up!

Just imagine a BokuAka fic with the tags established relationship and domestic au. This would be one fluffy read!

Now, if this were a manga or an anime, it would have a 12-episode runtime, and it's just nothing but sweet love.

Not to mention, BokuAka is living proof that opposites attract, and boy, do they attract HARD! Bokuto's boisterous energy ignites a spark in Akaashi, pushing him out of his comfort zone and encouraging him to embrace his own passionate side.

Meanwhile, Akaashi's levelheadedness grounds Bokuto, helping him channel his energy and focus on what truly matters. It's a match made in anime heaven.

Canonically, Bokuto and Akaashi are already living the domestic couple life. All they're missing is the canon relationship tag, and we're all set!

Even if we don't have a Domestic BokuAka in Haikyuu, we sure can live through the fact that they already act like it, so no tags are needed!

They Fit The "Sunshine and Sunshine Protector" Trope

Another canon tag that almost everyone in the fandom would agree with.

Let's be real: Bokuto's energy is part of his charm, but it can also be a bit overwhelming at times. That's where Akaashi comes in. He's always there to gently guide Bokuto back down to earth, offering a comforting shoulder and a listening ear during those infamous "emo modes."

But it's not just a one-way street. Bokuto, with his boundless energy and unwavering optimism, is a natural healer. He has an uncanny ability to make everyone, not just Akaashi, ride his energy and feel a boost of encouragement.

This beautiful protector and healer dynamic? Total proof that Bokuto and Akaashi are made for each other!

They just get each other on a soul-deep level, instinctively knowing how to lift each other up and create a safe space to be their true, authentic selves. It's the kind of relationship that makes you believe in soulmates, the kind that we all secretly crave!

They Have The Perfect Height Difference

Okay, let's talk about the height difference! Bokuto and Akaashi are the perfect embodiment of this.

Bokuto's tall, broad-shouldered frame practically screams "protector," while Akaashi's smaller stature just begs to be enveloped in a hug. The visual contrast is a serious chef's kiss, and it opens up a world of possibilities for adorable interactions.

Imagine Bokuto, all towering and powerful, gently resting his head on Akaashi's shoulder after a long day. Or Akaashi, standing on tiptoes to playfully ruffle Bokuto's hair, a mischievous glint in his eyes. It's enough to make any shipper's heart explode!

And let's be real, the height difference isn't just cute; it's also incredibly sexy. The potential for that classic "bending down for a kiss" or "lifting the smaller one up" moment is just too good to resist!

It's a visual representation of their dynamic – Bokuto, the energetic powerhouse grounded by Akaashi's calm and collected nature. It's a recipe for pure, unadulterated romance, and we're here for every single second of it!

They Already Feel Like An Established Couple

Okay, hear me out: Bokuto and Akaashi are already basically a married couple, even without the official label! Their connection is so deep; it's like they've been together for years.

Not to mention the way they protect each other! Akaashi is always there to calm Bokuto's chaotic energy, while Bokuto fiercely lives up to Akaashi's validation.

They constantly hype each other up, both on and off the court. It's like they're each other's biggest fans, always pushing the other to be their best.

Basically, Bokuto and Akaashi are the definitions of couple goals, even if they haven't officially realized this themselves. Their bond is so strong it's like they're two halves of a whole. And honestly, who wouldn't want to see that kind of love blossom into something more?

They Support Each Other's Dreams

Even though they've taken different paths in life, with Bokuto going pro and Akaashi becoming a successful mangaka, their love for volleyball remains constant.

It's like their love for the sport is a metaphor for their love for each other – intense, passionate, and always pushing them to be their best!

Akaashi might not be on the court with Bokuto, but he's still his biggest fan, cheering him on from the sidelines and offering unwavering support. And yes, Bokuto, your world is watching you!

This is the kind of love that we all crave, isn't it? The kind that celebrates our differences and empowers us to chase our dreams, knowing that we have someone special cheering us on every step of the way.

BokuAka shows us that love isn't about sacrificing our passions for each other; it's about embracing our individuality while still being there for each other through thick and thin.

At least, that's what our delulu minds bring us to.

Bokuto will live for 120 years....in another life, maybe?

May Bokuto and Akaashi continue to ignite our screens with their fiery chemistry and adorable antics. We're not just hoping; we're demanding more BokuAka content!

While waiting for the next Haikyuu movie, we'll have to live through fanart, fanfics, and memes. Do you have any to share? You can post it at the Otaku Community!
