Books & Movies
Hannibal Lecter/Clarice Starling is the most popular pairing.
Very soon after the first episode aired, some fans expressed their dislike of the slash pairing of Hannibal Lecter/Will Graham. These fans of the original books and movies appear to have been unhappy with the queer interpretation of Hannibal Lecter by new fans. Others appear to have been unhappy with the prevalence of the Hannigram pairing when they viewed Clarice/Hannibal as been the canon pairing.
