Alrighty, I need to get this off my chest after the BS shipping argument I got into today. Ah the joys of being a bumblebee supporter. .
Sun is a poorly written character who’s backstory and thoughts are mostly made off fan assumptions. He is part of a long line of male/hetero love interests who latch on to the female protagonist at first sight and devote themselves to getting her no matter what. And if they can’t do
that they just cling and insert themselves into her life. If you really aren’t ok with icky
ships...well, I got news for ya. Sun is what happens when writers don’t
know how to write realistic relationships.
Blake and Yang are by no means a perfectly written potential couple.
There is no confirmation that either are bi, or that they have feelings
for each other. But there’s a lot of potential as anyone who watches the
But the thing is that they’re so much better than the alternative. Yang
and Sun are not equal, and they’re relationships with Blake are night
and day (pun intended). I think Sun’s “sunny” personality, Michael
Jones’s good voice acting and the fact that we are so used to this kind
of character in media has blinded a LOT of people to the reality. Hey
vapid and one-dimensional.
And to be fair, Blake’s characterization has been all over the fucking
place because they have no idea what they want her to be. But at least
she has motivations that go beyond a creepy devotion to someone she’s
In summary, Blake looks cute with both Yang and Sun. But one would be a
relationship that’s realistic and between to characters who have lives,
motivations and interests outside of each other. The other, isn’t that. I
get wanting to be the peacemaker, to make everyone feel valid. But bad
writing is bad writing. And no matter how goofy, tan, blond, ripped and
earnest Sun is, he’s still a flat character and a creep. And that’s not
his fault, it’s the writers. But it is the reality of the story. And we
have to judge it by how it is, not how we imagine it could be.

I'm not sure I would say Sun is poorly written, per se. He does have a lack of characterisation and purpose outside of being a sidekick and method of developing/evolving Blake's character, but that may be by design rather than laziness or oversight, since I believe his purpose is in fact just as a sidekick and character developer for Blake, and that's why he's not getting more work put into him. Now, if they were to actually pair them romantically in canon, then I would have to say that, yes, they didn't put nearly enough into his character to put him on the same level as the main cast and that would be a serious disservice to his character (and Blake's). But I don't believe they will go that route and he will be cemented as a secondary or even tertiary character.
And regarding Blake's characterisation being all over the place, I believe that isn't her character actually being all over the place but rather her growing and changing as a character. Now, we'll need proof in the next couple volumes that it is in fact permanent character development, but I'm confident that's what it is.
I could be wrong about all of this, it's pure conjecture, but I feel like this is where the writers are going and I think it's all by design, not happenstance or lazy writing or anything like that.
