Top 10 Couples in Anime and Manga

By Dindrane - posted 10.03.07 @ 9:38 pm

Ah, love, sweet love. Anime has science-fiction, action, fantasy, horror, and realistic drama, and it often, in the midst of any genre, also has love. Here is our unscientific and wholly subjective list of the top 10 anime couples of anime and manga.

Sorata and Arashi from X

10. Sorata and Arashi, from X: the TV series. These two may be the "darkest" couple on the list, but only because X is such a heady blend of supernatural, good vs. evil, and universal stakes. It takes an Ice Queen like Arashi to sort out the womanizing Sorata, and you're rooting for them from the first moment. If only they stay alive long enough to enjoy it... (Buy X on DVD from Amazon...)


Tenchi and Ryoko from Tenchi Muyo!

9. Tenchi and Ryoko… or Ayeka from Tenchi Muyo!. I know, I know… I can hear the groans from here. But you have to admit that the question of which damsel would win the fair hero Tenchi kept people wondering and fighting for years. Whether you pull for the hot-headed space-pirate Ryoko or the powerful space-princess Ayeka, Tenchi hopes to prove that he's not only some chosen alien-human hybrid able to save the world (repeatedly), but maybe even a good man. Setting the standard for harem comedies for years to come, Tenchi wins either way. (Buy Tenchi Muyo stuff from Amazon...)

Kyo and Tohru from Fruits Basket

8. Kyo Sohma and Tohru Honda of Fruits Basket. In a dark, depressing anime, Tohru's gritty, determined cheerfulness might just be the only light, and it does not go unappreciated by the abused, neglected cat Kyo. Of course, some readers/viewers would prefer to see Tohru with "the Prince," Yuki, that's just tough. It's the "one who was never loved" who needs love the most, and Tohru is the only one strong enough to love the alley-cat Kyo. (Buy Fruits Basket stuff from Amazon...)

Miaka Yuki and Tamahome from Fushigi Yugi

7. Miaka Yuki and Tamahome from Fushigi Yugi. They may make everyone's favorite couple's list, but there's a good reason for that. They struggle, they fight, they overcome. They may not be the cutest (Syaoran and Sakura, anyone?) or the hottest couple (maybe Amon and Robin, or Mars' Rei and Kira), but they are definitely the most undying. The situations they face are legitimately heartbreaking and testing, and they've earned their place on the list. (Buy Fushigi Yugi stuff from Amazon...)

6. Spike Spiegel and Julia from Cowboy Bebop. They may be doomed from the beginning, and Julia may not actually feature very much in the show per se, but her specter haunts Spike and informs the action from beginning to end, or from end to end, depending upon how you view the chronology of the show. Julia's personality can even be said to live on, in some ways, in Faye Valentine, another strong-willed woman Spike can't help but like. (Buy Cowboy Bebop stuff from Amazon...)

Kyoko and Godai from Maison Ikkoku

5. Kyoko and Godai from Maison Ikkoku. Godai is part hapless romantic comedy hero and part everyman; who doesn't sympathize with the earnest young man stuck trying over and over to get into college so he can make a life for himself? Meanwhile, he falls in love with his slightly older gorgeous landlady, the gentle, intelligent widow Kyoko. A classic of comedy, drama, and anime in general, Kyoko and Godai show how convoluted the road to true love can be. (Buy Maison Ikkoku stuff from Amazon...)

Kaoru and Kenshin from Rurouni Kenshin

4. Kaoru Kamiya and Himura Kenshin from Rurouni Kenshin. In the middle of this most shonen of shonen samurai series, there lies a gentle romance. Whether you prefer the OAV or the manga ending, their romance endures over years and survives Kenshin's wanderings, his violent past, constant danger, and maybe even life-ending diseases. In a show with a theme of redemption and the assertion of life in the face of death-mongering, their romance serves to affirm the basic humanity of even the most dangerous of characters. (Buy Rurouni Kenshin stuff from Amazon...)

Kagome and Inuyasha from InuYasha

3. Kagome Higurashi and Inuyasha from InuYasha. Bravely loving even the most frustrating and irritating of demon-dogs, Kagome manages to survive and even transcend possibly being a reincarnation of InuYasha's lost love, Kikyo, who herself shows up to create a nice, tidy love triangle. However, it's clear from the beginning that Kagome is a much better match for InuYasha than Kikyo is. Despite the best efforts of Koga, InuYasha's wolf-demon rival, a host of demons who want to defeat InuYasha and/or eat Kagome, and the machinations of the nefarious Naraku, the pair triumphs. An amusing side-couple is that of the businesslike Sango and the womanizing monk Miroku; often used for comic relief, they are themselves quite an interesting couple and a good match. (Buy InuYasha stuff from Amazon...)

Deedlit and Parn from Record of Lodoss War

2. Deedlit and Parn, from Record of Lodoss War. A classic: a knight and his lady, a human and an elf, a fighter and a magic-user. Deedlit and Parn set the standard for subtle, under-spoken but definite love stories for ages to come. We didn't have to see love scenes or babies to know that they would die for each other, and that Deed might just pull an Arwen and die with her short-lived human beloved. (Buy Record of Lodoss War stuff from Amazon...)

Ranma and Akane from Ranma ½

1. Ranma and Akane from Ranma ½. This couple is as prototypical as it gets. Akane is a spitfire, loved by Ranma for the very reasons he can't bring himself to admit he even likes her, while Ranma is as reliable as the wind and as impossible to tame. Anything less would bore her as much as the viewers. Though they both have umpteen-gazillion rivals, they muddle through and, not unlike Takahashi's Kagome and InuYasha, clearly fall in love over the length of the series. You never stop rooting for them, even when you, like their partner, want to strangle one or both of them. Highlights include the OAVs An Akane to Remember and The Two Akanes, Ranma, Look At Me! What can we say? Takahashi knows how to write squabbling lovers who are also equals and interesting. (Buy Ranma ½ stuff from Amazon...)

The character of love in both anime and manga is as varied and different as the titles themselves, delving into forbidden love, desperate love, sweet love, young love, first love, and final love, but just like the real world, no two people are exactly alike, and no romance will be exactly like another. Anime and manga both have an ability to insert romance into titles that may not seem to be a natural for it, and yet it works. The above ten barely scratch the surface of the variety and styles possible, but they are my favorites, and maybe they can inspire you to find your own favorites.

    this is so cute, and helped me find a few animes i've never heard of.
    I sugest u put down Kouta and Lucy/Nyuu from Elfen Lied. Sure, Lucy may or may not be dead depending on how u take in the last ep, but so . adorable. Kouta, the regular boy. Lucy, the dicloin(spelling?) that can cause a persons body to explode in half just by looking at them, using her invisible, and very strong vectors. To get it ud have to watch the anime..

    I've never really liked Inuyasha and Kagome. I agree that they are cute, but I prefer non-canon. Like Sesshomaru or Naraku and Kagome.

    I know this sounds kinda corny but you should include Daisuke Niwa and Riku Harada from D N Angel. I mean, practically the whole series is about them falling in love, right?

    I think that Miaka and Tamahome aside from Deedlit and Parn are the cutest and most undying couple. It did offend me, but otherwise, good job! :3

    i think that inuyasha and kagome should of been before Spike Spiegel and Julia from Cowboy Bebop
    Because spike and julia are NOT a very cute couple at all

    eek! i hate kagome and kaoru, so those 2 couples were out of the question,i havent seen some of the other animes, so i cant say much about those, but what happened to the cutest couple in the whole world, sakura and syaroan?!(not their tsubbasa reservoir counterparts, but their original CCS parts)

    Comment by Emily — June 19, 2008 @ 3:34 pm

    No Usagi and Mamoru? I would imagine they would be at least in the top 5 :(

    I may be a bit late but, Mimi... Lucy and Kouta? Dude, there are so many reasons they shouldn't be together, not the least of which being Lucy is an unstoppable death engine. And knowing what went down as kids.... ugh. Badwrong.

    Rati: Thanks for your message...but from what Spanish I understand, you're saying you have one question and it's why MSN? I'm sure a lot of people who use MSN are wondering the same thing, frankly. Or to put it another way, hopefully without butchering it, No entiende su pregunta, Ud. puede preguntar una manera diferente? College was a long, long time ago.

    I posit Lawrence and Horo from "Spice and Wolf." I don't think it was out when this list was made, (not the anime, anyway,) but I have so very little to do with my time.

    Comment by Mara — August 5, 2008 @ 11:53 am

    RANMA AND AKANE FTW! NUMBER ONE, YES!!!

    I'm sorry but InuYasha and Kagome don't even begin to COMPARE to the level of romance that Ranma and Akane share. Don't get me wrong, I love InuYasha and Kagome (Yes, die Kikyo, DIE!), but Ranma and Akane share a much deeper bond. Why?

    Because InuYasha is still confused about who to pick, Kikyo or Kagome. In the manga he never really states he 'loves' Kagome (but we all know he does).

    HOWEVER, no matter how many girls want Ranma and how many boys want Akane, third parties never really have a chance because Ranma and Akane don't see anyone but each other. There was no Kikyo in this one, and I love that! Ranma loves no one but Akane, and Akane loves no one but Ranma. And in the end, he screams he loves her ^_^.

    And this is why I think you are absolutely right. Your criticism on anime couples is very accurate, and if I was you I wouldn't really pay attention to the "ZOMG INUxKAG SHOULD HAVE BEEN FIRST PLACE BECAUSE THEY'RE SO KAWAII" comments since more than half of the InuYasha fans haven't watched Ranma 1/2 ^_^(Which they SHOULD because Ranma is InuYasha's ancestor, both from Takahashi-sensei).

    I also agree on the TohruxKyo thing because I knew from the start that Yuki saw her as a mother more than he did a girlfriend.

    Awesome article! Keep it up! :D

    hello I am not ok with your choice!¶
    ¶you chose animate excel however you did not give their true values.¶
    ¶my opinion it has is fushigi yugi which would have to have the first place because one can see their intense love.¶
    ¶whereas in ranma they do not make that to certainly dispute one can see their love but it is not as romantic as fushigi yugi they make all their impossible not to be separate.¶
    ¶but good it is my opinion.¶
    ¶thank you very much for that you made and good continuation.¶
    excuse my English because I do not speak it well because I am algerienne.¶

    I completely agree with ranma and akane as no.1! xD

    As I was reading through I was thinking "hmmm...I wonder if this person has Ranma...nah, its a bit old...' and there it was as number 1! I couldn't agree less.

    One thing I like about that couple is that it definatly wasn't love at first sight, and their relationship develops slowly over time with excellent character development.

    I also think that over half th peope who have read/read IY havent Ramna.

    Okay, I have seen a crap-ton of these "top 10/20/50/100 anime couples" lists and I have to say, yours is, BY FAR, the most comprehensive and objective one I have read. Your summaries of why they are on your list is well written. Thanks for this.

    Currently, mine is Hei and Yin from Darker Than Black but the ones on your list are pretty classic.

    I have no idea what you just said but I'm going to assume it was profound and say thank you.

    I'd have to add Klaus and Dorian from "From Eroica With Love"... what's that you say, they weren't really a couple? Give it time, I say. Give it time. *g*

    OMFG!!! They are re-booting Rurouni Kenshin into a new anime! Here's to them doing the Junchuu Arc at last and taking out all the crappy fillers! Please let Bones be the production company, please.

    I agree .... Kagome is much better pair for Inuyasha than Kikyo.

    Liked every couple on the list...except miaka and tamahome. I think their relationship is way too cheesy and melodramatic...but...different strokes for different folks.

    I simply adore Ranma and Akane and so, thank you for putting them on the first spot. I like how most of the photos of the pairs are sweet saved for Ranma and Akane. I'm blabbering but I just can't get enough of them right now (currently watching all the eps of the anime, will delve into the manga soon).

    I also think Kudo Shinichi and Mouri Ran should be on the list. I mean, we've had more than 600 eps worth of their romance.

    It was a nice list! Thank you for sharing! ^_^

    Where's Usui and Misaki from Kaichou wa maid-sama? T.T

    I soooo agree with Ranma and Akane. they're like the BEST ANIME COUPLE IN THE WORLD. BOTH ARE DENIAL, TOO PROUD.. BUT DESPITE THE HESITANCE IN THEIR WORDS, IT IS VERY CLEAR IN THE WORLD THAT THEY REALLY DO LOVE EACH OTHER THROUGH THEIR ACTIONS ^^

    RANMA && AKANE FTW!!!! I WILL FOREVER LOVE THIS ANIME COUPLE.

    teheee childhood memories ^^

    Why aren't Nagisa and Tomoya on here? They should be number 1.

    dear dafuq....i like tomoya and nagisa too but this not your list of anime couples, it's hers. also, the clannad anime started airing in october 2007 but this list was compiled before then so maybe it just missed?

    The only ones I'm truly familiar with on this list are Ranma & Akane and I have to agree that they are like the epitome of an anime couple. Other animes with romantic themes in them I recommend are "Welcome to the NHK" and "Hayate no Gotoku"... NHK is a bit depressive but it's rooted on love and has its funny parts... and Hayate no Gotoku is just plain funny but every once and then some deep stuff happens.

    I think Serena and Darien for Sailor Moon should be here. They're a really cute couple and live each other deeply.
