The trio rarely interacts as a group. Nonetheless, they all appear to think of each other as friends. This is especially true for Fuyuhiko and Peko, who have known each other since youth. Meanwhile, Ibuki's outgoingness allows her to warm up to just about anyone, including the standoffish Fuyuhiko and stoic Peko.
In spite of both of them being somewhat distant from the rest of the group, Ibuki does her best to befriend both the yakuza and swordswoman. During a Special Event in Chapter 1, Ibuki and Peko are taking a walk on the beach together. And in Chapter 3, Ibuki throws a welcome back party for Fuyuhiko after he recovered from his injuries. While Fuyuhiko and Peko often have their patience tested by the musician, they are both shown to be willing to tolerate her antics.
A slightly more prominent dynamic is established between the three characters in Despair Arc. Because Fuyuhiko and Peko don't want the rest of their class to know about their history together, they usually have private conversations to avoid suspicion. However, Ibuki often finds them and intervenes, usually in a smug manner, questioning if there is anything going on between them.
The ship primarily exists as an extension of the ship between Fuyuhiko and Peko. With Ibuki being thrown in as the third wheel, who often tries to push the two of them together. This is helped by the fact that in the anime, the two are often ship teased as a result of Ibuki interrupting their conversations.
Very rarely is the trio actually shipped together as a polyamory pairing. Though in some cases where it is, it is likely due to the mutual attraction between both Fuyuhiko and Peko, and the one-sided attraction to Peko on Ibuki's side.
