Default Favorite Anime Couples/Pairings

Pretty self explanatory here, but post some of your all-time favorite couples/pairing in anime. Can be canon or non-canon.



A recent favorite of mine is Eureka and Renton from the Eureka Seven series. The character arcs for the two leads (particularly Eureka) sold me on their overall chemistry and basically helped solidify the series as a whole. It made moments such as
[Show spoiler]the skyfall scene, Eureka trying out make-up to please Renton, Renton properly confessing his love to Eureka, and Eureka and Renton kissing for the first time
all the more memorable because of the trials they had to overcome. I can say similar things to the movie counterpart (Pocketful of Rainbows) although the ending was more bittersweet than I'd like it to be (same with the manga and apparently AO, which is why the original has a special place in my heart).



Another recent one for me was Taki and Mitsuha from Your Name (Kimi no Nawa). The way Makoto Shinkai utilized the body-switching trope to bring the two leads together throughout the movie was unique and made their inevitable reunion at the very end all the more emotionally gratifying (and why Your Name is the best anime movie since Spirited Away).

Post your OTP here y'all (and no arguing on best pairings).

Finally, a chance to expose the deep pool of my secret shipper heart!

I'm kidding (sort of), as I generally don't get too wrapped up in routing for certain pairings, but occasionally I'll get caught up in a relationship because of how the characters interact, and the anticipation of what may be. Oddly, I'm not really all that emotional myself in terms of expression, but I'm a sucker for sentimentality.

Kousei and Tsubaki (Your Lie in April) - While this is probably hugely unpopular, I always loved their potential as a couple. As poetic as the main pairing is (the driving force of the show), there was always something so poignant about the relationship between these childhood friends, and Tsubaki's growing love for him beyond that of a surrogate brother. I found their relationship far more interesting for the foundation of a great romance. I never expected them to end up together, so it was sweet that the ending seems to indicate that they may have a future together yet.

Naruto and Hinata (Naruto, duh) - I'm not trying to poke the bear on this one, so regardless of where you stand, I couldn't have been happier with how this turned out. I binged watched the entire show (plus movies) over a period 5 months and timed it just as it ended this past April. It never seemed like any other outcome was remotely plausible (okay, a little poke).

Taichi and Inaba (Kokoro Connect) - Inaba is one of my favorite characters in all of Anime, so it was a great and pleasant surprise when the last episode ended with these two character in an actual relationship. It was unexpected, even though I was pulling for them. Really wish they could come to terms and get on with another season, since I need more Inaba, but tis not to be.

Taiga and Ryuuji (Toradora!) - Not much has to be said here. I just recently watched this show for the first time, but I loved their chemistry. Simple story set-up but with a great delivery. One of the best kisses in Anime.

Ed and Winry (FMA Brotherhood) - Didn't really need to happen since their relationship wasn't in any way front and center, or entirely vital to the show, but it made sense and I liked how they handled it building a relationship periodically throughout the series until that nice little finale

Eren and Mikasa (Attack on Titan) - Like the couple above, I don't really need two to get together in an official capacity, but ending up in a solid relationship would not be such a bad finale for these two, especially Eren. This is one I doubt will happen, and I'm okay with that.

Akane and Kogami (Psycho-Pass) - I apologize in advance for vulgarity. When it comes to non-romance Anime, the pattern for me (if you haven't guessed already) is that I generally don't have a serious horse in any of the races if the main thrust of the story isn't romance, but there can be elements of romance in any genre, so there are times where I think a certain pairing feels right. In the case of Akane and Kogami, there is an unspoken thing built on mutual respect and admiration that goes beyond that. Whenever I see them interact, all I can think about is, "damn, these two just need to f*ck already". I don't need them in a love-conquers-all relationship, but those two just really need to f*ck.

Nagate and Izana (Knights of Sidonia) - Some of the best relationships I get caught up in are those that sneak up on you. This is a pairing that never crossed my mind at the beginning and then I was all about it. With a fascinating approach using the idea of a non-binary gender, and a second season that seemed to put these two on a inexorable collision course, they ended up in a way that I was satisfied with. However, based on what I've heard about how the manga ends, I hope they either never make a 3rd season, or dramatically alter it. It would be beyond depressing to unravel all of that for such a nonsensical conclusion.

That's a simple one to answer-Yusaku Godai and Kyoko Otonashi from Maison Ikkoku.

Reinhard x Kircheis... (Lol, yeah right...)

My absolute favourite is:

Hikigaya Hachiman x Yukinoshita Yukino (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU)

SNAFU is among my favourite anime ever, as I was 100% Hachiman, and I was madly in love with a girl like Yukinoshita back in High School. Man, how similar it really was. SEASON 3? I'd kill to see one, and with a proper ending- original or not, it doesn't matter.

This scene man... This is up with Evangelion, Death Note and LOTGH as among the best monologues in anime history:

I HIGHLY Recommend everyone watch SNAFU.

Too bad their courtship was condensed into a two episodes, the second of which was their wedding and arguably the most poorly animated of the series all of which I'd love to get "the Yamato 2199 treatment"!)

I can't believe no one has mentioned Tomoya Okazaki and Nagisa Furukawa from Clannad.

My personal favorite anime couple is Kraft Lawrence and Holo in Spice and Wolf.

A 1000 times this. I actually thought
[Show spoiler]they would get together in the movie, but I guess they're going to keep stringing us along.


My choice: Asuna and Kirito from Sword Art Online.
