ShinRei is the het ship between Hitoshi Shinso and Reiko Yanagi from the My Hero Academia fandom.

Canon

Reiko and Hitoshi are not seen together commonly, due to their differing classes (Reiko in 1-B, Hitoshi in 1-C). However, they do have few select moments through the course of the series, and can be seen together in the background on occasion when the first years are gathered. Notably, both share a somewhat eerie, almost ‘zombie-like’ appearance, both being rather pale in complexion, Reiko’s sleepy expressions and habit of holding her arms out (like a horror movie zombie!), and Hitoshi’s consistent tired looks with heavy, prominent eyebags.

Without many previous interactions, Hitoshi and Reiko are paired (alongside Nirengenki, Neito and Yui) against the team of Izuku, Ochako, Mina, and Minoru for the 5th, and final set of the Joint Battles. The two gather with their other teammates, and as a whole, discuss the best strategy to lead themselves to a win against 1-A.

Nirengenki says that since the entirety of the 1-A team has quirks less suited to attack, and more of strategy/technicality, they should take a similar, tactical approach against the enemy. Ever the goth, Reiko adds that Izuku will be the one 'haunting' them the most. Hitoshi expresses confusion over the meaning of this phrase, to which Nirengenki answers that it's her way of saying Izuku would be hardest to defeat. Hitoshi agrees with her in further detail, that they should definitely prioritize Izuku. The battle turns out with Hitoshi being the main one to go against Izuku, with the backup of Reiko’s Poltergeist to move objects towards their other opponents who they consider less of a danger to their win (Mina, Ochako, Minoru), and later, Yui’s Size to enlarge potential projectiles. Unfortunately, this doesn’t prove to be enough to defeat the 1-A team, and the team loses the match. However, it becomes a given that Hitoshi’s performance is enough to bring him into the hero course (from general studies) in his second year at U.A, and potentially in 1-B like Reiko.

Fanon

ShinRei is a ‘rare-pair’ in the MHA/BNHA fandom due to the combination of their lack of screen-time, and interactions together, which brings less to guess on how Hitoshi and Reiko would act together, much less how they would behave in a relationship. However, the similarities between the two, more specifically their ‘spooky’ attributes and tiredness bring attention to the couple, and of course, shipping potential.

The ship has about 20 fics on AO3, and is Reiko’s most written pairing.
