Top 20 Anime Couples


As new anime arrive, so do new couples (confirmed or otherwise) for fans to ship into their own fantasy lovey-dovey pairings, but this latest ranking shows that even longtime and in many cases inexplicably unrequited pairings remain popular to this day – especially when their series are currently ongoing…

The ranking:

1. Kirito x Asuna (Sword Art Online)

2. Koyomi Araragi x Hitagi Senjougahara (Monogatari series)

5. Ryuuji Takasu x Taiga Aisaka (Toradora)


6. Okita Sogo x Kagura (Gintama)


7. Raku Ichijo × Chitoge Kirisaki (NiseKoi)


8. Shinichi Kudo × Ran Mori (Detective Conan)


9. Yuta Togashi x Rikka Takanashi (Chunibyo Demo Koi ga Shitai!?)

10. Kira Yamato × Lacus Clyne (Gundam Seed)

11. Hijikata Toshiro × Okita Mitsuba(Gintama)

12. Shota Kazehaya × Sawako Kuronuma (Kimi ni Todoke)

13. Sorata Kanda × Mashiro Shiina (Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo)

14. Kyousuke Kousaka × Kirino Kousaka (Ore no Imouto)

15. Rintarou Okabe × Kurisu Makise (Steins;Gate)

16. Shuyo Kano × Tsubomi Kido (Mekakucity Actors)

17. Mikiya Kokutou × Shiki Ryougi (Kara no Kyokai)

18. Kojou Akatsuki × Yukina Himeragi (Strike The Blood)

    No Jinto or Lafiel either. Not even a measly Nodame and Chiaki or Aoba and Ko, either. Kids these days don't watch much anime, I guess.

    I think it's because people watch so much anime that there are new and changing favorites.
    Also, most of the people reply to this survey are over 30.

    If this list was labeled "favorite 'couples' of the last few seasons of anime" then I wouldn't have a problem with that idea. But if it's truly 30 year olds (ie people who have likely seen a lot of anime) voting, and this is the list they came up with, then it's a sad day to be counted as a otaku.

    There are so many popular couples just from the last 15+ years that it makes no sense to limit yourself to the most popular CURRENT anime, unless you're not picking your favorites and just going with the popular opinion. Which is amazingly sad. You might as well not even have a poll if you know the results will be this predictably boring.

    Which just makes the list even sadder, and me ashamed to be in the same age-bracket.

    Oh shit, what a fail to not include them. I'd add Miyazawa Yukino and Arima Soichiro from Kare Kano.

    Of course not. They remember Sakura and Tomoyo, as is right and proper.

    pff, if crappy tsundere/idiot protagonist pairings are on the list I can expect anything. and the I believe that misaka and touma or the nisekoi characters never were on a formal relationship, so those pairings are as valid as saying naruto/hinata or ichigo/orihime

    If you had read the paragraph, you saw that unrequited pairings also made the list. Whether they are valid or not is irrelevant, since they were voted for anyway.

    Why is this list called "couples" then? You know, where it's actually canon?

    It should have just been called "OTPs & Also Ships".

    I'd rather see more of these than Kira and Lacus in this list. Fuck Gundam Seed.

    even when naruto is crappy I always thought that the scenes of naruto and hinata were kinda funny and cute,if touma and misaka are there naruto and hinata need to be there too

    Honestly, Kirito and Asuna are the fakest couple I've ever seen in my life. Both of these characters are just so poorly thought out and have about as much complexity/depth as a slip n slide.

    That's partially down to the first SAO series rushing through the LN material.

    True. Not everyone needs their couples to be realistic or even interesting. Just like they don't need their characters to be realistic or even interesting.

    It's pretty simple. The chicks just need a big rack and a plump ass. And the male protag? I guess some cool anime hair and a face?

    So looking at it the Sawyer way, the female perspective would be to throw the target at the missile?

    This works, in a way.

    The males? Nah. They need as little personality and character as possible so the viewer can project themselves into them.

    Comment by Anonymous

    Well, reverse it for the other sex. They can live vicariously through a vapid female character (plenty of them here) and the guys just need to be tall, dark and handsome Gary Stu.

    No Kenshin and Kaoru from Rurouni Kenshin? One of the
    great couples of anime history.
    Also Shishio and Yumi.

    Wow, are these what pass as good couples in anime these days? Not that long ago we had some actual couples with some real chemistry or romance, what happened?

    I don't think 2 or 3 out of 20 is a good track record. Especially considering that Clannad is the type of anime you toss on this list to pretend it has some credibility.

    Fuck off where's Spike x Julia? That relationship was the basis for, and led to one of the greatest endings of any anime ever. Fucking kids these days don't understand the glory of Cowboy motherfucking Bebop.

    That relationship was not present on screen for over 20 episodes. Spike x Faye would make more sense.

    Kei & Mizuho Kusanagi...

    If we only counted couples that consummated the relationship, this list would be very small indeed.

    How sad is that? As shallow as a kiddy-pool it might be, I guess it's still consummation just for the sake of calling it that.
