Leaf is indeed turning Red, thanks to her blushing, thanks to Fire-Red parting her hair from her face, holding it and leaning in for a kiss I imagine! If I was Red I'd likely try to kiss her too, name 1 guy who wouldn't if given a chance! I do indeed like this drawing! I hope when/if Leaf gets an anime counterpart she and Ash have a moment like this!
Uh... Ash? Not a chance... the anime is no longer something to give worth to, all they care is to make him get every single damn badge, keep meeting all the characters of the games and never age. Sadly it's nothing but a commercial show... at this point the manga based on the games are better :\
Depends: In the games, she's called Leaf; In the manga, as well for the shippings, she's called Blue and Gary is called Green. So basically both are correct, I've just decided to stick on the games version.
