Top Ten Anime Characters that Should/Should Have Ended Up as Couples


The Top Ten

1 Tatsumi & Chelsea - Akame Ga Kill. Tatsumi & Chelsea - Akame Ga Kill.

A lot of reasons why these two should been couple material!

Honestly, Chelsea and Tatsumi would be far better couple than Mine and Tatsumi. They just look sweet!

Hottest and sweet couple ever!


2 Roy Mustang & Riza Hawkeye - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Roy Mustang & Riza Hawkeye - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Why isn't this canon? *crying inside*

I love how they strictly keep their relationship as a platonic way. But, deep down in my heart, their relationship is the second strongest relationship (after Edward and Alphonse), their bond is so dynamic that beats all other romance couples in any Shōnen anime, even more than Edwin. Roy x Riza forever! - Angelatran

Aw, man. They don't? Rip me - Absolite

It was hinted since the beginning. Their relationship was just so professional and,at the same time,romantic. And the hugging scene was just heart-melting! - Tia-Harribel

3 Tai & Mimi - Digimon

Tai and Mimi. Courage and Sincery. - NaruHinaBlaze1

4 Raku & Tsugumi - Nisekoi

The cutest choice. They are absolutely adorable.

5 Yugi & Anzu/Tea (Yugioh)
6 Zoro & Tashigi - One Piece

Zoro seems to me a solitary guy who is only interested in swords and sake, but if it should end with a woman, surely it will be Tashigi. Or her or no one else. They would be a perfect couple.

But... how could it work? She's a marine, he's a pirate. A best, it would be a one night stand.

I hate this pairing! And Zoro is not suited for romance at all.

Zoro and Tashigi deserve and should be destined to be together. It's not just because they're both swordsmen and so they can understand each other's lifestyle better than anyone. Oda has now made them tie in more and more ways from Loguetown arc and Punk Hazard confirmed it. It should be added that in an interview the author has suggested that Tashigi has a crush on him and from the strange and unusual behavior of Zoro (nervous, agitated, ready to quarrel) only in her presence you can guess that he returns her and when it’s necessary he will always take care of her, despite being in fact enemies. A forbidden but exciting and interesting love story that could bring peace between two different worlds.

7 Mako & Gamagori - Kill la Kill Mako & Gamagori - Kill la Kill
8 Yona & Hak - Yona of the Dawn Yona & Hak - Yona of the Dawn

They are canon in manga.

If they decide to make a season 2, there's a huge possibility that these two would end up together. - ToukaKirishima

I agree... We're waiting Studio Pierrot! - listotaku17

9 Ahiru & Fakir - Princess Tutu Ahiru & Fakir - Princess Tutu

(Spoilers! ) Fakir fell in love with Ahiru but it's not clear whether Ahiru loves Fakir. Even if she does love him, they can't even become a couple in that state. One is a duck and the other is a human. It's a terrible ending for the two people who saved everyone. Most of us were VERY disappointing. At least Fakir forcefully kissed Ahiru in the promo. That dance in the lake of despair was so beautiful. I almost cried! Ahiru should have gained her human form as a reward for what she did. - ToukaKirishima

10 Touka Kirishima & Ken Kaneki - Tokyo Ghoul Touka Kirishima & Ken Kaneki - Tokyo Ghoul

I am not sure about the anime but in the manga it's too obvious that Touka likes Kaneki. And Kaneki also cares so much about her. It would have been so much better if they followed the manga with all the Touken moments. These two are so cute together! - ToukaKirishima

In Tokyo Ghoul :Re, it could've happened if... Sorry that would be a spoiler. - Undistinguished

They kinda are a couple now...

Touka is so fond of Kaneki and Kaneki really sees her more than a friend. His confrontation with Ayato is proof. And when he met her again after his memory loss,he thought of her as beautiful and familiar. - Tia-Harribel

The Contenders

11 Spike Spiegel & Faye Valentine - Cowboy Bebop Spike Spiegel & Faye Valentine - Cowboy Bebop
12 Ichigo & Rukia - Bleach Ichigo & Rukia - Bleach

During my time reading the Bleach manga I seen hints at Ichiruki happening such as when Ichigo saved Rukia from being killed by his emotions for her. There where lots of times that showed they could’ve been a couple. The only real time it showed that Ichigo had feelings for Orihime was the time he turned into a hollow and attacked Uryu.

I really love IchiRuki but I can't see it happening...

EDIT: And it didn't happen...not sure how to feel about the ending. - Tia-Harribel

#1) On the list of Cutest Anime Couples, but the thing is, they're not... - listotaku17

13 Raku Ichijō & Kosaki Onodera - Nisekoi
14 Kahoko Hino & Len Tsukimori - La Corda d'Oro Kahoko Hino & Len Tsukimori - La Corda d'Oro
15 Sanji & Pudding - One Piece

They are so similar

Hell yeah

16 Shūrei Hong & Ryūki Shi - The Story of Saiunkoku  Shūrei Hong & Ryūki Shi - The Story of Saiunkoku

Ryuki proposed to Shurei but she didn't give him an answer. They should have continued the story. - ToukaKirishima

17 Ash Ketchum & Dawn - Pokemon Ash Ketchum & Dawn - Pokemon Ash Ketchum, known as Satoshi in Japan, is a fictional character in the Pokémon franchise owned by Nintendo. Ash is training to be a Pokemon Master, with his buddy Pikachu. Ash tries to stop the evil Team Rocket from stealing his Pikachu.
18 Soul Eater Evans & Maka Albarn - Soul Eater

I love this ship. They would look so cute together. Sadly the creator had no intention of making them a couple


19 Dalian & Hugh Anthony Disward - The Mystic Archives of Dantalian Dalian & Hugh Anthony Disward - The Mystic Archives of Dantalian

I almost forgot to add them. The anime just stopped halfway without a proper ending. Dalian and Huey care so much about each other. They would make a great couple. - ToukaKirishima

20 Ditt & Moreen - Mix Master Final Force
21 Kyoko Mogami & Ren Tsuruga - Skip Beat! Kyoko Mogami & Ren Tsuruga - Skip Beat!
22 Naruto & Sasuke - Naruto Naruto & Sasuke - Naruto

There are doujins of these two

There is doujins of these two - Hyakkimaru16

23 Simon and Yoko - Gurren Lagann

I know I wish that they were a couple in Gurren Laggan! Nia is okay but I choose Simon to be with Yoko. - NaruHinaBlaze1

24 Clare & Raki - Claymore Clare & Raki - Claymore
25 Shadow & Rouge - Sonic X

Seriously... They're made for each other. If Rouge is supposed to be attractive, then why the heck does Shadow never flirt with her? Come on, people.

Besides, Knuckles/Rouge makes less sense to me, anyway. Knux does not even like Rouge for God's sake! All they fight over is the doggone Master Emerald.

26 Tai & Sora (Digimon franchise)
27 Tohru Honda & Kyo Sohma - Fruits Basket - Anime
28 Tatsumi & Leone - Akame Ga Kill Tatsumi & Leone - Akame Ga Kill
29 Gray and Juvia - Fairy Tail Gray and Juvia - Fairy Tail
30 Levi & Eren - Attack on Titan
31 Dororo & Hyakkimaru - Dororo

This is really cute. I really love how Dororo just started following Hyakkimaru around and then dragging him to random places.

Honestly, one of the best ships ever

They would of made a cute couple - Hyakkimaru16

32 Ash Ketchum & Misty - Pokemon

Isn't it obvious, these 2 are the best pokeshipping couple - TheUmbreon

33 Yato & Bishamon - Noragami

Just a personal opinion but I liked this couple. - Undistinguished

35 Captain Falcon & White Cat - F Zero GP Legend
36 Kenji Harima & Tenma Tsukamoto - School Rumble

38 Hiruma and Mamori - Eyeshield 21
39 Kayo Hinazuki - Erased and Satoru Fujinuma
40 Natsu & Erza - Fairy Tail

42 Goku and Caulifla - Dragon Ball Super
43 Kenichi & Shigure - Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple
44 Soul & Blair - Soul Eater
45 Edward and Olivier - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood
