Hello all!! Happy Valentine’s Day!! I was really debating what topic to do today in celebration of Valentine’s Day and it was a mix between an anime couples list or a list of anime characters I would go on a date with. I chose couples because the guys I would date list would probably be way too long for one post. Nevertheless, I decided to choose just five of my favorite anime couples. These five couples feature two characters that I like even when they are not together and are couples that I believe set “Relationship Goals”. Some of these couples may not actually be couples yet but I still think they would get together eventually (at least I hope so).
Let’s get this thing started, shall we? Here are my Top 5 Anime Couples.
*WARNING: THERE MAY BE SPOILERS SURROUNDING SOME COUPLES*
5. Natsu Dragneel & Lucy Heartfilia (Fairy Tail)
Okay so this is basically that one relationship I was talking about that is STILL not officially canon. Natsu and Lucy’s relationship is one that I think is something truly magical and if they became a couple not a whole lot would really change between them. I feel like it has been hinted at quite a bit over the course of the series, and it is high time for Hiro Mashima to just tell us whether they are going to become a thing or not. If this series ends and I still do not know I will be angry because I really do ship these two and they are probably my OTP right now. These two have really been through a lot together and are always there for one another when needed. It is truly beautiful relationship. The only reason they are not higher on the list is because this couple is not canon yet.
4. Risa Koizumi & Atsushi Otani (Lovely Complex)
One of the first romantic comedy anime that I ever watched was Lovely Complex. It still puts a smile on my face and the relationship between these two is absolutely hilarious. Have you every had two friends who make fun of each other all of the time and you know that they do it because they like each other, but the two of them try to tell you otherwise. Well that is basically the relationship between Risa and Atsushi. I love both of them individually and think that I would still love them even if they did not get together. Thankfully it is not something I have to worry about. These two helped me to love romantic comedy anime, and set a pretty high standard for the anime that I watched afterwards.
3. Tomoya Okazaki & Nagisa Furukawa (Clannad & Clannad: After Story)
In my opinion, I would not be able to make this list without putting Tomoya and Nagisa on it somewhere. It was really close between these two and the couples at the number 2 and number 1 spot, so there is not too much of a difference between the top 3 on this list. I put them on it because the relationship between these two made me smile and cry all in one episode. They are so cute together and their relationship really changed both of them for the better. The two of them have been through a lot and I just enjoyed this couple so much.
2. Zen Wistaria & Shirayuki (Akagami no Shirayuki-hime)
Two of my favorite characters from 2015 (and continuing into 2016, haha) of course land a spot on my top couples list. I love their relationship because while they do rely on each other, they also see it is important to be able to function on their own. The two of them see it as important to not rely on each other for everything, but still be their if the other person needs them. Watching their relationship develop brings a smile on my face and I cannot wait to see what happens to them. I just love how they rely on each other but do not at the same time because that is not something that you see all of the time. Sometimes the two become so reliant on each other to the extreme and cannot function without each other, which could annoying at times. That is not something you have to worry about with these two and it just makes me love this couple so much more.
1. Shouta Kazehaya & Sawako Kuronuma (Kimi ni Todoke)
YES!! This adorable little relationship has earned its spot as number 1. Shouta and Sawako are absolutely two of the most precious and adorable anime characters that I have ever seen. When they officially become a couple, at the end of the second season, it was as if two of my closest friends had gotten into a relationship. I just feel so happy about this little couple right here, and the fact that they are both working so hard for their relationship is absolutely adorable. The two of them are working hard to treasure their relationship and that just makes it all the more precious. Becoming a couple was not easy for the two of them, but they got through their problems and are making it work. I love these two characters and having them as a couple just makes me even happier. Watching them interact just puts a smile on my face.
That is my list of Top 5 Anime Couples and my celebratory Valentine’s Day post, even if it did come a day late. I was planning on posting it yesterday but then some stuff happened and it got delayed, which I feel like has been the story of my life here lately. Oh well, what can you do?
That is all for me this time guys. What do you guys think? What anime couple is your favorite? Let me know down in the comments below!!
See you next time!!
