Top 10 Married Anime Couples


It would appear the only thing capable of knocking Taiga and Ryuji off the top of an anime couple ranking is cunningly restricting it to husband and wife couples only – although Kirito and Asuna’s booming popularity might yet give them a fighting chance even without this distinction.

The ranking:

1. Kirito & Asuna (Sword Art Online)


2. Akio Furukawa & Sanae Furukawa (Clannad)


3. Tomoya Okazaki & Nagisa Furukawa (Clannad)


4. Hiroshi Nohara & Misae Nohara (Crayon Shin-chan)


5. Yusaku Kudo & Yukiko Fujimine (Detective Conan)

6. Namihei Isono & Fune Isono (Sazae-san)

7. Masuo Fuguta & Sazae Fuguta (Sazae-san)

8. Yusuke Yoshino & Kouko Ibuki (Clannad)

9. Nazuna’s parents (Hidamari Sketch)

10. Yuno’s parents (Hidamari Sketch)

    Of course they'd be the perfect couple... every master needs a bitch. Even in role-reversal land.

    First couple I thought of when I saw this list. Also left out were Kare Kano's Yukino & Soichiro and Futari Ecchi's Yura & Makoto.

    Moroboshi Ataru and Lum are also missing. Like I said, this list isn't even trying to look legit.

    They weren't really married. They didn't exactly consummate their union.

    Huh. Good point. Though I think it may be because they never really...*felt* married. All of these couples have either been married for some time, or married after their relationship has developed to that point.

    As opposed to Mizuho and Kei, who are shoehorned into marriage randomly as the story's starting premise and then get used to each other. Their relationship is definitely sweet, but it feels more like a high school dating couple than a married relationship.

    They wait to get married to go back to school, remember? They realized the spontinuity of their actions and how it would affect their family. They rushed into the idea of marriage thinking it was their only escape. It's assumed, when they reunite, that they obviously still have strong feelings and that their relationship will continue onward- presumably to marriage.

    Only the marrying part didn't happen during the anime. But they probably will. Heck, marriage isn't even supposed to happen in high school so how can you have any anime centering around it?

    The OVA series where KEnshin Actually dies in the end.

    Also the final volume of the manga.

    Pretty sure they did, since they had a kid and all. But I don't think they should be on the list anyway.

    [SPOILERS] I mean, Kenshin starts a family, has a kid, then runs off all the time to save the world while neglecting his family. His son actually specifically hates him for some time for abandoning his mother to raise him alone. Then when he finally settles down, it's because his body's injuries can take no more, and he dies shortly after. Even if Kaoru is understanding and Kenshin was driven by altruism, that's not a happy married relationship. [/SPOILERS]

    Actually although they are living in a small apartment, the small gold badge that is shown on Kaoru's suit means that Kaoru actually became an attorney or something (so he had a good career path). And imo they both looked quite happy to themselves as they didn't care about the materialistic things they have as long as they had each other. But hey, the definition of "happiness" depends on the individual so if you think wealth = happiness then that's fine as well.

    Hence why I said one of the rare few "happy end" couples.

    You're aware that even jobs revolving around the legal sector involve unbelievably long stressful hours, in Japan, right?

    Aoi looked awfully lonely in that apartment, talking to Tina. And even comments that Kaoru spends too much time at/on his work. Also 4 years without impregnating his wife?! Come on! Typical sexless Japanese marriage, it's like the author wanted to leave it open for an NTR story arc.

    Nice spoilers bro. Technically speaking, those are just the OVA's, the manga ends differently, but whatever.

    Personally I didn't like either the OVA or the manga's ending. Neither of them seemed to make Kenshin come to terms with either his past guilt or mortality, which I think was one of the most important themes in the story. But anyway I'm getting way off topic.

    I kind of wish Guts and Casca were on this list. Technically they're not married, but they've got that romance going on for a short while which made them look like the perfect couple for each other.

    Besides it's EXTREMELY rare for anime to show couples in a healthy relationship.

    "Besides it's EXTREMELY rare for anime to show couples in a healthy relationship."

    Godai & Kyoko [Maison Ikkoku] were probably the best example of that rare "happy end" couple. Mainly thanks to Kyoko's late husband having a kind & supportive father.

    Kaoru & Aoi [Ai Yori Aoshi] was another example, but the ending brought them from courting lovers to two people stuck in a tiny apartment, struggling to make it on their own. The author really robbed those two of their happiness, when he took away their inherited wealth.

    Actually Maison Ikkoku was not part of OVA.

    [Spoilers] Godai and Kyoko get married at the tail end of Maison Ikkoku and have a daughter called Haruka.[/End Spoiler]

    i believe that they got married in the end of the Manga.

    But they are not as popular as most of the characters on this list.
