The Top Ten

Uzumaki Naruto & Hyuga Hinata - Naruto
personally I see sakura as manipulative toward naruto she convinces him to bring back sasuke because she was too weak to. Hinata has been there rooting him on from the beginning even if it was from a distance I am NaruHina all the way
The ever green couple and very cutest couple ever...
Look and compare all of the couples from above this is couple is the beautiful for ever...
I think this couple is one of the best, Hinata's love and admiration for Naruto is really strong and definitely there unlike Sakura's whose still unsure of the whole thing
[Newest]F Japan I love this couple

2Kurosaki Ichigo & Kuchiki Rukia - Bleach
Ichigo: "Thank you Rukia. Thanks to you, I think... The rain has stopped. " Chapter 181

Ichigo: "I remember now... Why I wanted to save you so much.. " Chapter 181

Rukia: "That's the kind of man you have been in my heart, Ichigo! " Chapter 196
Rukia: "I have no right to know. I don't have a method of stepping into the depths of your heart without it getting dirty. So I'll wait. When you want to talk, when you think it's okay to talk... Talk to me. " Chapter 20

Ichigo: You always nag and worry about me. You should worry more about yourself right now. Don't worry! I won't die yet!
Ichigo: Rukia, I've come to save you.
Rukia: I told you not to come... I told you... I forbade you to come...! Now you're wounded everywhere... You dummy...!

Volume 47, Ichigo's line: I wonder if I can keep up with speed of the world without you…

OHOHOHOHOH AND SO MUCH MORE. SORRY KUBO AND ICHIGO I DON'T CARE HOW "CLOSE OF FRIENDS" THEY ARE THAT IS NOT SOMETHING YOU SAY TO A FRIEND. Whether you think this relationship is platonic or not bleach is still all about the bond with these 2 characters and how strong it is. In all the entertainment I've watched anime or not these 2 I have never seen such a well developed relationship. They fight; they have both been through so much together and made each other become better people. They share destiny and there "the black sun and the white moon" "king and queen" Even if Aizen did plan for them to meet he did not plan on them creating such a relationship and that was a key point in Aizens defeat. She is his ray of light and he can't really function without her. This is not sibling love, this is not a type of mother and daughter type of thing. From forced roommates to do what was needed to survive, switching from student and teacher whether shinigami stuff or human stuff, learning more about each other and becoming friends, to partners in crime, to people who trusted there lives with each other. The "more than friend less than lover" I think in this new arc they will turn into lovers and learn to love each other through actions like they have in the past with the looks they give eachother. Even how inexperienced in those type of emotions. The only one ichigo has ever loved is his mother and family. And that missing love rukia filled the void. But what I think filling it more is past the form of the love you have for your family. (oh go di sound like some really cheezy hardcore shipper; even though I am fro these 2 these are not crack theories these are facts. I would put this into a more not such sobby shipping confession if I had time to type it) BUT ENJOY.
I love the silent romance between these two. They risk their lives in order to save each other, encourage and support each other through all the bad times. Their romance is subtle, but it's definitely there! What made the Soul Society arc so amazing was that Ichigo was able to grow as a protagonist, because of his determination to save Rukia. The way he showed off his powers to her was really cute too =) Ichiruki
[Newest]They are each other destiny aka soulmate. Fixed.

3Misaki Ayuzawa & Usui Takumi - Kaichou wa Maid-Sama
I doesn't get it. It should be in top ten. The story is good, funny, cute, and romantic. Both of them is really match. They are both smart, strong, and almost can do anything. The story is about misaki, the mean president of student council and really hate boys because of her father. Her family is poor so she go to cheap school that used to be boys school, seika high school. Every boys in her school is really afraid of her. She was the firs student council of seika high. Because of family economy problem she worked part time job as a maid(waitress) at maid latte. To keep her reputation as president of student council she keep it as a secret. But a really popular and cool boys in her school, usui is learn about her secret and keep follow her. Usui is like misaki and do everything for her. But because usui is like to prank her, she always say she had him even thought she is like him too, and confuse about usui's mystery life. Soon, misaki and usui is dating
This anime couple is should be in top ten! They are really cute! This anime is really my favorite! I LOVE U.. MISAKI and USUI!, hope I can watch you in season 2!
Yeah, this should be in the top 10 -. -"
I'm surprised it isn't.
They're both good-looking, get the top in everything (academics, athletics, and other stuff) except Misaki who is bad at cooking. But she isn't bad as a maid :P
So it kinda works. If they get married they can open a restaurant laugh out loud.
[Newest]They are just perfect for each other

4InuYasha & Kagome Higurashi - InuYasha
The whole InuYasha story seems to be a side story compared to the love going between those two for the whole series, and it's quite enjoyable to switch between love quarrels and demon hunting. Oh, and the Ex, the differences, the funny moments... And the ending I'm not gonna spoil...

I think the only anime couple that could top those two is in Romeo x Juliet... But that's just cheating you two, those two are fully original.
This is most definitely my favorite anime/manga couple ever! I especially love the fact that Kagome is not a helpless damsel in distress with no personality (although she often needs rescuing from yokais). Plus, it's totally adorbs when Inuyasha gets jealous!
Inuyasha and kagome was and still the most cute couple ever... Such romance and love they share with funny attitude...
[Newest]Finally someone mentions them, I think they really are one of the greatest anime couples ever

5Jellal Fernandes & Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail
I'm not one into romance... But this is one of the few couples in anime that actually work out. Unlike most couples where its only one person that likes the other and the other is totally oblivious to that fact.

Not Jellal and Erza... They are officially the strongest anime couple ever.


They're just really perfect. Their love story is
So perfect... I not really interested in romance
Or couples in anime for me their just like
Some additonal facts in a anime but when
I saw fairy tail and saw their love story is like that
I'm interested now in love... They are so sweet
And in manga erza was supposed to be beaten
By some I dunno monster but jellal saved her
And the kissing scene rrgh I thought they're
Really gonna kiss but jellal pushed erza...
Jellal's not ready... But I'm a jerza fan forever
They should be number one
[Newest]I love this couple perfect! They are meant to be I just want them to kiss already like gosh jellal why are so scared lol. They are such a strong couple and have so much feelings for each other and have each other's back.

6Natsu Dragneel & Lucy Heartfillia - Fairy Tail
I wish I could see them on a date it will be so cute! Ohh... They are so romantic...
Natsu and Lucy are ment to be together. They understand each others dreams and pains. They are willing to sacrifice themselves for the other and the rest of Fairy Tail. In The Keys to the Starry Sky arc, all Natsu thinks about is Lucy and Lucy fused herself into the Infinity Clock so Natsu didn't disappear in the fight against Brain II. And in The Grand Games arc, Natsu gets revenge on Sabortooth for torturing Lucy and gives up his spot in the games to save Lucy, (and all Fairy Tail fans know how much Natsu likes to fight) and as Happy would say "They lliike each other! "
Natsu and Lucy look so cute together they are the perfect couple! :D
[Newest]An amazing couple! Look at all those stupidly indirect hugs! Like LOL!

7Sasuke & Sakura - Naruto
Sasusaku was my favorite from the beginning and till the end!
Even though it seems hopeless in the manga/anime but you can never know what kishimoto might have up his sleeve so I guess all we sasusaku fans can do is hope
I don't care what anyone says. This couple is deep. They truly do care about each other. No matter what people say they are my favorite.
They would be the cutest couple in the world, just if only stupid sasuke would open his eyes and see that he also cares and quit being so obsessed with revenge that will lead him no where...
[Newest]The angst makes you have a wrenching feeling, and their chemistry is beyond any anime couple in my opinion.

8Tomoya & Nagisa - Clannad
Tomoya and Nagisa should be in top 5. They are both great characters and there relentionship makes Clannad what it is. It shows how they meet and how they get together and shows the whole rollercoaster of there lives together. They are also one of the most romantic couples as well, all the girls fall for Tomoya but he chooses Nagisa. If all anime couples were like these two, I'm sure animes would be much more popular!
I'm shocked this couple isn't number ten. Whats even more shocking is its below Edwin. I mean come on, this couple was what made the best romance anime the greatest romance anime ever. Throughout Clannad this couple just grows on you and you can just feel it. This couple doesn't even need to say "I love you" for you to know that they are in love. You just happened to know it from their actions.
I love Clannad!
But I also like the couple Tomoya x Kyou, and Tomoyo. So I couldn't choose very well but I let the anime decide for me


[Newest]Only Nagisa and TOMOYA should be together.I don't like that there not in the top 5 come on people pick up the slack and vote for this sweet couple

9Asuna and Kirito - Sword Art Online
Unlike other couples, Asuna and Kirito never had an ounce of awkwardness between them. Because of the situation they were in, where either one of them could die, they didn't waste any time being awkward and fidgety. From fighting side by side, saving each other's lives countless times and their deepening bond as they both struggle to get back into the real world, they came to love each other and figured that it would be stupid to waste any time NOT being together. They both knew they loved each other and got married because of it (in the game I mean) and established their relationship as a couple. But that's not all they are to each other, they're a couple, best friends, each others protectors, saviors. They have each other's backs and try so hard to win the game and get back into the real world so that they can ACTUALLY be together, for real. And once they meet Yui it really is like they're a family, and it's just so cute that I felt like crying every time I saw them together, or when the three of them would reunite after being separated. After more than two years the two of their characters develop so much and learn so much, and honestly when they reunited in the real world I was actually crying tears of joy. Asuna and Kirito's relationship is so much deeper than most, and it's just really beautiful, there's no other way to describe it. And the funny thing is that this epic badass story with its epic badass couple isn't actually a romance anime, not even close, it's main theme is much more serious than some cliche love story that takes place in some random high school, and yet it's couple is a billion times better than ANY couple. Anyone saying that it's not possible, try watching all 25 episodes and THEN try saying that Asuna and Kirito aren't the most epic and amazing and sweet and beautiful couple in the universe.
I believe that the deepest bonds that can possibly form between humans come from two people fighting side by side. Kirito and Asuna do just that - fight for each others' lives, developing passionate and companionate love for each other. It's truly a beautiful story.

Another thing about this relationship that I find particularly interesting - it transcends the virtual world and manifests itself in the real world as well. If you've ever had close friends on MMO games, you'll find this pairing particularly meaningful.
They are the best couples I had seen so far. I had never ever seen a couple would die for each other if one of them die. I also realize they are a simple couple instead of the other couples who are always hiding their dam feelings. I mean it's getting annoying!

BUT... Asuna and Kirito relationship is much different. So that's why I respect them.

By the way... Other couples such as the GIRLS... I find it quite BAKA for a girl who don't even know that the guy LOVE them. Isn't girls suppose to have more feelings? I mean girl aren't stupid and I know that b-because I'm a girl. Duh. That is why, their love relationship always take ' long! Unlike those couples, Asuna and Kirito are more simple. They love each other without any complaints.
[Newest]Such an intense bond!

10Edward Elric & Winry Rockbell - Fullmetal Alchemist
Oh! I love the plot of this anime, and I do also love the characters, most specially edward and winry. Their love story is so cute, even if edward does not show his love for winry too much. I hope that there will be another season, and I hope to see their love a chance.
Come on.. I know they don't speak much and it seems that edward is in no mood
Of love and all.. But everyone who has seen the series knows how much he loves her...
They are a sexy couple! EdXwin!
Fma is EPIC and Ed and Winry Make a SEXY couple
[Newest]Hooray! They are in top ten couples now!

The Contenders

11Naruto Uzumaki & Haruno Sakura - Naruto
They would make the most fun couple in the manga. They actually know each other and enjoy each others companies. There is too many realistic flaws with any other couples and depending in your tastes Sakura is the most fun to read about when she is with Naruto. They make each other stronger by either talking to each other or by their own actions. Heck the only thing they haven't done is kissed or truly confessed to each other. The biggest thing is their relationship was built up naturally. Naruto loves Sakura while Sakura's feelings for Naruto constantly grows, matures, and becomes something more. Plus it is usually nice to see the main character get the girl he likes especially when that girl works well with him.
I agree it makes me feel bad that the whole life Naruto saved sakura dreamt to marry her. His whole life was full of pain and what he ends up to be is a matchmaker that's no good


They are like siblings. That's all! No romance!
This pairing really flow so well, that's no wonder this pairing has a great chance of being true. Even they have support from background history, their chemistry is almost perfect. They both laugh, cry, motivated, and live to make each other happy. Even the story behind is a nice storytelling. Bottom line, NS is my choice.
[Newest]They are so amazing couple ♡

12Haruhi Fujioka & Tamaki Suoh - Ouran HS Host Club
Tamaki would never even realize that Haruhi was a girl if he hadn't seen her ID! Hahaha! I love how Tamaki is so emotional and frivolous (and naive and dense and... ) while Haruhi is so blunt. It balances their romance... although it does seem quite reversed. I also love it when Haruhi says something that makes Tamaki depressed and sit on one corner, pouting! Definitely the best for me! (Next best couple for me is Hikari Hanazono and Kei Takishima from Special A)
I wish I was Haruhi! I mean she's so lucky! This couple is cute! Yeah, if I had to pick an anime girl I would want to be Haruhi.
I like how they aren't so 'overly in-love' with each other. :) ) like how it all started, developed, how they denied it and stuff like that :) )
[Newest]I ship this so much my friends think I'm a boat maker

13Renji Abarai & Rukia Kuchiki - Bleach
It's my favorite couple in any manga. In the story of their relationship there is drama, there is separation, yearning, and reconciliation, and those are some of the reasons that make it so interesting. Another charismatic aspect of their relationship is the closeness and intimacy in general that they often show with each other. They are funny together too, they often tease each other and sometimes is hilarious. They have a lot of aspects that got me so attracted to their relationship. And individually they are very interesting characters too.
They've always meant to be together, both of them have known each other for such a long time and will do anything to help each other. It's so obvious that Renji likes her, but it's down to a will-they won't-they kind of thing. I'm hoping they will
They are BEYOND perfection, there personalities mesh so well, they already act like a married couple. What they do for each other, the way they treat each other. Renji is the Stay and Rukia is the Star.
[Newest]I really ship this couple. Renji and Rukia fit very perfect together. Hope this couple come true later

14Shinichi & Ran (Rachel & Jimmy) - Case Closed Aka Detective Conan
For me ShinRan is the best. They show the true love. They have patience, trust and love. They are the best. They are the most perfect one.
Even though Ran doesn't know that Shinichi is always on her side, their love binds them together and Shinichi always protecting her whenever Ran is in danger. They have trusts that never broke and they never miss to call for an important event.
Yes! Poor Jimmy wants tell Rachel how he feels and we all know it but he can't do it in conan's body. It's so sad that whenever haibara hets him back to normal, he just turns into a kid before he get to tell her. Come on Jimmy, just four words... I love you Rachel
[Newest]I think that Shinichi and Ran have the purest kind of love. I mean they literally grew up together and were bound to fall in love from the very beginning.

15Sakura Mikan (Yukihara Mikan) & Hyuuga Natsume - Alice Academy or Gakuen Alice
Their love isn't skin deep.

We have Mikan Sakura, a cheerful, bubbly girl. She's not smart, but she has her kindness to compensate. It is then later on in the series that she realized she is one of most powerful alices (magic) and people are after her.

Then we have Natsume Hyuuga. A prodigy that has a strong alice that is brought up to be trained as an assassin. His alice is so strong but it is the type that feeds on his lifeforce, so every time he uses it, he dies a bit quicker. He knows the darkness of the world, the people. He is smart, handsome, hot, but well feared. He distant himself from others because of the sole wish of not wanting those whom he treasures to get hurt.

Natsume was born in darkness and Mikan is his light, his light that he doesn't wish to taint. It is so heartbreaking to watch him struggle between letting his best friend Ruka who also likes her take her and claiming her as his own. He understands that she will not be tainted by his darkness if he were to give her to Ruka.

His love for her is unconditional, sacrificing. He chose to protect her from the darkness no matter how much he wanted to hold her tight and keep her for himself. (His love overflows so much that sometimes he slips his indifference mask and does sweet things to her- but he covers it with witty remarks that pisses her off)

Her love is pure, understanding and forgiving. Coincidently or not, she seem to be there when he secretly came back injured from a mission. She can see his pain underneath his mask. She thinks of him all the time (as much as she wants to deny it). She is his weakness and strength.

Beside from the complicated love in between, there are quite a lot of teasing due to Natsume being a smartass pervert (only to her) and Mikan being the innocent naive girl.

It is really cute to watch them yet at the same time painful to see the struggle in between.
Their love is painstakingly beautiful.
This couple should be here because not even just in the anime and manga there always seen fighting quarreling but just like in the same order in romance anime's they always fight but in the end the confessed their LOVE to each other (but the style in the manga was even better because the style was like Romeo X Juliet) and the guy lover has a love rival and bad because his love rival is his best friend and more love rival's pa see they should me there and be NUMBER 1
They are so cute together (in manga. PLEASE READ) In the anime they're always arguing but Mikan and Natsume hinted that they like each other. Oh my gosh in the manga I cried, laughed and felt heartbreak at the same time every time Natsume showed signs that he loved her. Also they were meant to be together because their parents used to be best friends they figure this out later on in the manga).

When Natsume confessed I started crying uncontrollably because it was sad. Even destiny can't break them apart. They really should be number 1 because they are on my list! I was eating a doughnut when Natsume proposed and I started choking and crying (again) because it was the most romantic moment ever, it kinda reminded me of Rapunzel. ♥

Mikan is pretty naive and Natsume is so sophisticated, they're perfect for each other.
(to be honest I really don't like Ruka... at all)
Natsume and Mikan forever!


[Newest]Best hate-love couple ever

16Zero & Yuuki - Vampire Knight
Zero is more suitable to Yuuki than Kaname
And for me I like Zero more and I find him more intelligent and handsome than Kaname to fit more with the cute Yuuki.. And in the manga I see Yuuki is fond of Zero after Kaname left her..
Hands down, I would take zero any day. He's so perfect for her and is always there. I hope they seal the deal in the end because that would be the best way to end the story
He is the best, I don't know what is in you people's minds! Didn't you know that he actually cares about Yuki unlike her brother Kaname Kuran
[Newest]Zero is way better at the end he was like if your really a vampire bit me... And she did also Yuuki wanted more than anything in the world to help him after she found out he was a vampire... But I was mad at the end when she picked kaname...

17Naruto & Sasuke - Naruto
I think Naruto and Sasuke should at least be in the top ten. They both have such tragic past and both understand each other. Naruto is always thinking about Sasuke after he leaves the village. Trying to figure out ways to save him from Orochimaru, and once Sasuke leaves Orochimaru Naruto tries to save Sasuke from himself and revenge. Naruto is ready and willing to give his life if it means saving Sasuke. While Sasuke doesn't show to much thought about Naruto once he leaves the village there are moments like when Sasuke asks Naruto why he so absorbed in him Naruto states it's because there friends Sasuke looked so touched. Sasuke has also jumped in harms way to protect Naruto like when Haku purposely shot needles at Naruto, Sasuke knowing it was a trap still jumped in harms way to protect Naruto and basically almost dies for him and his last thoughts were of Naruto and their fun time together and about his revenge on his brother. So that's why they should at least be in the top ten cause they have such a great story.
They were sort of rivals as children, but it wasn't that kind of rivalry that they actually wanted each other dead. It was that sort of a relationship you might have with someone in real life in elementary school, hatred mixed up with jealousy. When they were put together in a squad they started to communicate and collaborate better and in the anime even Sakura noted how well the two worked as a team. The element of jealousy was still present, but Naruto could sometimes push those feelings aside in order to work better. Both Sasuke and Naruto are both very competetive, and they often competeted against each other, thus pushing themselves further and further... I really liked it how they're relationship evolves from elementary school rivals to best friends who still have hatred between them... When Sasuke left Konoha, even he admitted that Naruto really was his best friend. Plus, he spared his life even though he could've easily killed him while Naruto was unconcious. Then follows the part of the series that covers a lot of the episodes... Years pass, but Naruto still tirelessly keeps on training and working in order to be able to bring his best friend back. He always thinks of him and is very determined to bring him back, it's almost as if he devoted his life for Sasuke. The reason these two deserve a higher rating is because they're relationship truly is strong, and it has slowly but steadily evolved to this point.
Babes, Naruto and Sasuke, Sasuke and Naruto, I mean, can you try to describe one without mentioning the other at least once? The answer, trust me, I tried, is no. Their relationship is so touching, one is constantly running after the other never giving up because he just knows that he can save him, and the other enshrouded in darkness just looking for a way to get back on the right path.
[Newest]Naruto is all about Naruto finding Sasuke. They ended with Hinata and Sakura but they must love each other and had to look normal to other people. Actually their love is deep, isn't it?

18Tohru Honda & Kyo Sohma - Fruits Basket
They are just perfect together. I haven't read the manga yet, but I've seen the anime. As the anime goes on, you can see that Kyo starts becoming a better and better person thanks to Tohru. He goes from pretending he doesn't care about her to loving her with all of his heart. She loves him so much that she accepts him even in his monster form. They understand each other so well, and always seem to say the right thing to the other person when the other person feels down. Yuki and Tohru are cute too, but they don't compliment each other as well as Tohru and Kyo. I could tell from the beginning that they would be together, even when Kyo was trying to convince himself that he didn't like her. They are just the most perfect couple ever
This is a really cute couple that you couldn't predict from the beginning of the series... or maybe you could.
Kyo always has to be a tough guy. he only has a soft side for tohru. and shes just the sweetest thing who accepts everything about kyo.. who doesn't get much acceptance from anyone else. perfect couple!
[Newest]Awesome couple in fruits basket! Math each other a lot!

19Shikamaru Nara & Temari no Sabaku - Naruto

20Gajeel Redfox and Levy Mcgarden - Fairy Tail
They would make a cute couple and its obvious that they both like each other. It all began when he took on Laxus' lightning that was going for Levy and in episode 101 he says its hard to find someone small like her and says so don't leave his side and in episode 102 Levy gives Gajeel Iron and notice that the o in iron is actually a shape of a heart if that's not love then I don't know what is anyway they will always be my favourite couple they would be so adorible kawaii much
It's such a sweet couple ^^ perfect example of opposites attract.
Maybe most of anime lover don't notice this couple in fairytail but they both really match together like vegeta and bulma...
[Newest]Opposite attract, that's these two right here
