Anime is packed with different kinds of couples just like in real life. Some of us follow anime just so that we can keep up with what goes on between couples.
Anyway, I thought we should take the opportunity to learn a bit more about couples within in anime.
Top 32 Popular Anime Couples
1. Android 18 And Krillin
Are they a couple or not? There are times when I am not sure that Android 18 and Krillin are a couple. Perhaps you had better watch one of the many offerings from the Dragon Ball franchise by Akira to find out more.
As we all know. Dragon Ball characters have many interesting super powers. This couple will impress you with their flying and martial art skills.
2. Mikasa and Eren
Mikasa and Eren from Attack on Titan is another cute anime couple that has what I like to call a weird relationship dynamic going. At times, Mikasa treats Eren as a naughty little boy.
But, she might be doing the right thing. There are those who say that boys will always be boys.
Both have dark hair, and even though they are not what most people would call an official couple, it is obvious that something is going on in between them. Both Mikasa and Eren make Attack On Titan a series worth watching.
3. Light and Misa from Death Note
What can I say? Once again we have the concept of cute girl and intense guy. I was not sure that I was going to mention them, but they are popular anime couple so I guess that they deserve their place on this list.
4. Misaki and Usui
Misaki and Usui are another romantic couple who's you will probably enjoy watching. You will find them in the anime series Kaichou wa Maid-Sama. Classical combination of blonde haired anime boy and dark-haired anime girl.
5. Taiga and Ryuuji from Toradora
Blonde girl and dark haired guy from Toradora meet and fall in love – do I need to say more? Just be aware that this is a little bit of controversial relationship and a dramatic one.
It may not be for everybody, but as I said at the beginning, almost any kind of relationship is considered normal in anime. You never know what you are going to come across.
6. Kirito and Asuna
Sword Art Online has managed to create one of the best anime couples as far as I am concerned. They are very much part of the storyline and I enjoy watching them. They are not over the top romantic with each other but they certainly seem to have a great relationship.
This is a great classical anime and I would even go as far as to say that Sword Art Online is one of the best anime.
7. Subaru and Emilia from Re:Zero
Not a fully developed relationship yet, but I suspect that these two will very much become a famous anime couple in the future.
Emilia comes across as really sweet and Subaru is popular with many female anime fans. I know that he is sort of suave and sophisticated and many girls do like that.
If you would like to keep an eye on their developing relationship, you should check out Re:Zero
8. Goku and Chichi From Dragon Ball
This is perhaps the cutest anime couple that you will come across. Goku and Chichi always seem to be looking deep into each others eyes. Maybe that is why they are such and admired couple in the world of anime. Check them out in Dragon Ball.
9. Lelouch and Kallen from Code Geass
Not sure that that Lelouch and Kallen are ever going to become an “item” as YaYa would say, but they do get up to a lot of adventures together. They are a force to be reckoned with and this rather off the wall anime series should be on your list to check out.
10. Miroku and Sango
If you like romance with a touch of action, you should watch InuYasha. Miroku and Sango is one of the cutest anime couples you will come across in anime. They are what YaYa would call sweet.
Yes, I guess that they are sweet on each other and girls will certainly enjoy their relationship.
11. Vegeta And Bulma
Dragon Ball has come up with many interesting characters and I am sure that you will agree when I say Vegeta and Bulma make an interesting combination. Most fans of anime will have heard of this couple.
Anyway, I love the characters, and if you are new to anime, you must make sure you watch Dragon Ball.
12. Nagisa and Tomoya
So far we have not mentioned Clannad but we have to. Why? It is one of my favorite series and I watch it a lot. It is one of those magna series you can watch and always find something new.
If you are into Clannad, or are thinking about watching it, you will come across Nagisa and Tomoya.
I seriously recommend this anime.
13. Alzack and Bisca Connell
This is a true couple and they are actually married. Their wedding in Fairy Tail looked a lot like a rock star wedding and I thought it was pretty cool. If you would like some wedding inspiration, you should watch them in Fairy Tail.
14. Rikka and Yuuto
Have you seen the anime series Chuunibyou? It is one of those animes that a lot of people seem to miss out on. Perhaps it is not promoted very well by Kyoto Animation. Anyway, I think that it is well worth watching.
When you do decide to watch it, you will quickly come across Rikka and Yuuto. One can I say about their relationship? I think it goes to show as far as anime relationships go, almost anything works.
That is true for real life as well. I am not sure how to describe their relationship but I guess you can say that they are a pretty unique combination. You really do need to see it for yourself.
15. Sousuke and Kaname
Full Metal Panic is what I would describe as a new style Japanese anime. It seems to reflect real way in a way that other anime series doesn't do. The couple in the series is called Sousuke and Kaname.
I watch the series simply because I think that it is beautiful and on of the best anime creations that I have come across. And, of course, than there is Sousuke and Kaname...
16. Sakura and Sasuke from Naruto
I don't know if YaYa has been inspired by Sakura but when we last spoke, YaYa had added some pink color to her dark curls.
Sasuke is one of the most handsome anime guys and I can see why so many girls like him. He has great physique and amazing dark eyes. She is cute and many of my friends call her sexy. One of the most popular anime couples.
17. Cobra and Kinana
Finally. I think that Cobra and Kinana from Fairy Tail should be included on this list. It is testament to prove how many great characters this Fairy Tail has produced. I am sure that it will go down as one of the all time classics.
I think it is a great series, and I like everything about it. It plays with your imagination. If you want to escape from the world for a while and just relax, it is the best.
18. Zero Two and Hiro from Darling In The Franxx
Some say that this anime is not as good as it used to be. I have not watched every episode recently, but I still think it is a good series which is worth watching. The series feature Zero Two and Hiro. Together they make up one of the more interesting couples.
I am not going to give too much away but I certainly think that you should check them out.
19. Elfman Strauss and Evergreen
It is characters such as Elfman and Evergreen that make Fairy Tail such a great series. You can follow this couples love story. It is packed with a little bit of everything and makes for great drama.
20. Hiyori and Yato from Noragami
There is something a little bit less worldly about these two as you may know if you have watched Noragami. They make an interesting addition to our list and I think they deserve to be part of it.
21. Taichi and Inaba from Kokoro Connect
YaYa has this rather strange expression that she has come up with and it is “ loved up”. I am not sure where she gets it from but I guess her English dad may have something to do with it. Taichi and Inaba are certainly very loved up or in love.
Kokoro Connect is not one of the most popular series, but I think it will go down as a bit of cult series in the future. You should definitely watch it as it is well worth it.
22. Lucy and Natsu from Fairy Tail
They are not really a couple but to me, they appear to belong together. Besides, I think that Lucy is cute so I thought they deserved a mention. The dynamics in between them are interesting and I think that Natsu does have feeling for the gorgeous blonde Lucy.
23. Naruto and Hinata from Naruto
She is dark and he is a dashing tall blonde hero. Some would say that this is the perfect combination for success and adventurous romance. They are maybe the most famous couple on this list.
I think that Hinata is cute. She is tough but vulnerable at the same time. I guess many find her appealing and a lot of girls really do seem to like Naruto.
24. Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask from Sailor Moon
The amazing healing abilities of this couple will impress you. On top of that, they also look great together. You will find them in the Sailor Moon franchise and they also appear in Super S: The Movie.
25. Kagome and Inuyasha
Do you like men with long hair? In that case, you need to watch the series Inuyasha. It is getting a bit old and I did not realize that it dates back to 2000.
However, it is a good watch and Kagome and Inuyasha are two characters worth getting to know. I am sure they will come back to grace our screens again.
26. Mavis and Zeref
One of the more passionate couples in Japanese manga. You will find them in Fairy Tail. Mavis is one of the sexiest anime stars and I guess that he is a really gorgeous guy.
Most of you are probably familiar with them as I am sure by now you would have seen Fairy Tail.
27. Issei Hyoudou and Rias Gremory
I am mentioning this couple because of a particular reason. You will find them in a manga series called Highschool DxD. Unfortunately, I don't think that this series is mentioned as much as it should be.
Many fans of manga and anime seem to ignore it. However, it is good and you should not let some of the negative reviews out there put you off from watching it.
28. Happy and Charle
Yes, I know what you are going to say. This is not really a “human” couple. But, as we all know, most things go in anime. You can check out Happy and Charle in Fairy Tail and I think you will find that they are what can be called a “stand out” couple.
29. Arima Kousei and Kousei
This couple appear in Shigatsu wa Kimi No Uso. You may want to make a note of that name as it is rather complicated to remember.
Arima is one of the cutest anime girls that I have seen. She is not every shot, but that should not stop you from watching this couple in action.
30. Winry and Edward from Fullmetal Alchemist
I know that they are just fictional characters but I like these two. They have sort of a fun relationship which helps to make Fullmetal Alchemist more interesting.
Overall, I think that this is a good manga series and I understand it is now one of the most popular series of all time in Japan.
Types Of Anime Couples
When you start to watch anime, you will quickly realize you will come across different types of couples. Some couples are really badass. Others are underrated and in my opinion deserve much more screen time.
Of course, there are also romantic couples. On top of that, you will also encounter couples that are totally out of this world. Alien anime girls are kind of hot and anime guys seem to be falling over themselves to be in relationships with them.
You even get supernatural couples and interspecies relationships in anime. Come to think of it, love in anime comes in all shapes, sizes, and species for that matter.
Underrated Anime Couples
As I said, there are some anime couples who deserve more of a mention. It is kind of sad that they don't get more screen time. To me, at least, it is in the underrated category in which you will find the most interesting couples.
What anime shows should you check out? For the most underrated couples, I would personally recommend anime series such as Bleach, Slayers, and Nadame Cantabile. And it is in Nadame Cantabile, we meet our first underrated couple.
Shinichi and Megumi Noda are two real anime cuties who are in love with each other. You can't really call them a couple from the first episode. However, as the series continues to evolve, so does their relationship.
Shinichi and Megumi make up a bit of an unconventional couple, but their relationship does seem to work for them.
Hikari Shidou and Lantis can be found in the anime Magic Knight Rayearth. Their relationship is not so obvious at first. But, all of a sudden, you find yourself asking what is going on. Are they in a relationship or not?
As the series goes on, it is clear that these two have got a good thing going on.One day, their relationship will probably blossom into something really beautiful.
Badass Anime Couples
Then we have to turn to our badass anime couples. They are the couple who take on the world or take on each other. Their relationships certainly make for great watching. If you like tumultuous and slighlty crazy relationships, badass couples are for you.
In Naruto, you will find Sakuro and Sasuke Ichicha. They are both fantastic ninja warriors and exciting fighters. On an individual basis, they know how to stand up for themselves. But, you need to watch out when you get them together. Let me put it this way, that is when the fireworks really start flying.
You also have Haruko and Michiru from Sailor Moon. When we first encounter them on screen, they are already an established couple. Both of them have amazing powers and even possess psychic abilities.
In the future, we are bound to run into more anime couples worth a mention. You may have your own favorite pair.
If you do have a favorite anime couple you think deserves a mention, please let me know. I love it when other anime fans get in touch and tell me about their favorite anime characters and couples.
