Tsumaki is the femslash ship between Maki Harukawa and Tsumugi Shirogane from the Danganronpa fandom.
Tsumugi and Maki didn't interact much despite both surviving all the way to Chapter 6. They did have a moment where Tsumugi joined Maki, as well as Shuichi and Himiko, for training. Both also have a hidden identity, Maki being an assassin, and Tsumugi being the mastermind/New Ultimate Despair. After Tsumugi was revealed as the mastermind, Maki turned hostile and was more than ready to kill her in order to end the Killing Game.
In Ultimate Talent Development Plan, during the sports festival, Maki is made the basketball team captain and Tsumugi may be one of her team members. She says to avoid doing anything that would get her hurt, but Tsumugi says she'll be fine because she cosplayed basketball manga characters before. Maki then says that she has no expectations of her.
The two didn't interact very much during the game, which is why the ship isn't very popular. Nearing the end of the game, they had increasing potential for a survivor ship as both were still alive so far, and with the dwindling numbers there were less options for that kind of ship. When it was revealed that Tsumugi was the mastermind, Maki, like the others, hated Tsumugi and everyone forgot about her good side. Maki even threatened to kill her, which sparked the interest of players between the two, and some began to ship it. However, because of Tsumugi's mastermind reveal, some may have lost interest rather than gain it, due to Tsumugi never caring about anyone to begin with.
Even though Tsumugi's personality during the killing game was somewhat faked, fans believe that they could still work together and have an interesting dynamic. Although they don't interact much during UTDP, it's a universe where Tsumugi is not the mastermind, and never fakes any of her relationships. So, some would prefer to ship it only in that context.
Their color schemes contrast each other nicely, as Tsumugi's outfit and hair is blue, while Maki's outfit is red.
