Shinkami, or Shinso/Kaminari, is a slash ship between Shinsou Hitoshi and Denki Kaminari in the fandom Boku no Hero Academia. Despite the fact that the two have barely interacted in the anime (the bulk of the shippable moments between them being in the manga), it has become a relatively popular ship, and it is currently the most written ship on Archive of Our Own for both Shinso and Kaminari.


Shinso and Kaminari are on the same team for the first round of the Joint Training Battle. When Shinso is first presented to the team, Kaminari says "With those looks, you must be popular with the ladies. I can tell." implying that he thinks Shinso is attractive, and despite Shinso claiming that he isn't there to make friends, Kaminari attempts to strengthen ties with him.

After the initial battle with the 1-B team, Shinso is well aware of his inexperience in battle, and apologizes for his slowness in capturing Shishida Jurota, but Kaminari points out that he was able to stop Shishida, avoiding the total defeat of the 1-A team, and tells Shinso that he likes him, and that he's a 'proper hero hopeful, just like the rest of us.'


Shinso and Kaminari's friendship is often compared to EraserMic, All Might/Sir Night Eye, Kiribaku, and MiriTama, due to the introverted dark haired man/boy and the loud blond extrovert trope, and there is a multitude of memes and fanworks that mention the parallels in the friendships of Present Mic and Eraserhead, Kaminari and Shinso, Kirishima and Bakugo, and Deku and Todoroki, the parallels being that Eraserhead, Shinso, Bakugo, and Todoroki didn't want to make friends, but Present Mic, Kaminari, Kirishima, and Deku befriended them anyway.
