Is there shipping? I might be interested if there’s shipping.
Oh, there’s shipping like you wouldn’t believe, so the point that it’s actually a game mechanic.
When characters help each other in battle – assisting each other’s attacks, healing each other – they improve their support levels. This not only improves how much they help each other in battle, but also unlocks progressive story conversations between the two. Some relationships (unfortunately, only those between male and female characters) can progress all the way to an S-Level support conversation, at which point, the two characters are actually married.
And apparently, at some point in the game, you start playing as the children of these married couples. (I only know this from Internet osmosis; I’m only up to chapter nine, but I’ve been working really hard on these relationships because I don’t know when the time skip is.)
