Top 10 Anime Hypothetical/Non-Canon Couples.

Silverbullet96
I'm talking about the pairings that probably won't/or didn't actually happen in canon I. E the actual story line. Maybe some romance harem animes haven't ended yet, but in most cases you can tell which one is the 'main' couple that is going to end up together, so exclude those ones too.
For eg: TomoyaXKyou in Clannad, MistyXAsh in Pokemon.

The Top Ten

1 Shinichi Kudo & Shiho Miyano - Detective Conan

The chemistry. Enough said. - Silverbullet96

I think shiho better with bourbon and shinichi of course with ran

I've always thought this pairing had a lot of potential. Yeah, ShinRan is sweet and a very heart-warming form of childhood love story. But in a crime-mystery anime, I don't see why CoAi would not work. I think it's interesting to see them work together in cases, they have such good chemistry to be honest! It reminds me of Roy & Riza from FMAB. I love how they started out distrusting one another, with Conan thinking she was evil & all. But then, eventually, learning more about her & making her shatter that cold exterior. He taught her how to warm up to others, it's no surprise that he's special to her. It's a shame that this pairing would not be the main canon instead. I think if people look past the fact that ShinRan was the initial couple from the very beginning and REALLY, REALLY look at CoAi with an OBJECTIVE and OPEN-MINDED lens, they would find that this pairing is as great as ShinRan, if not, even greater.

I love them

2 Mugen & Fuu - Samurai Champloo

The anime implied that they both had feelings for each other (although it's possible that Jin had feelings for Fuu too, I'm not sure about this, the romance subject was simply implied in this series) but they never confessed them. It's a loose end that it could happen when they meet again someday.

3 Naruto Uzumaki & Sakura Haruno - Naruto

Warning this is an anti narusaku rant. Let me break down whats so horrible about this pairing and why it didn't happen in canon.
1. Jokes. Most of the things thaf shippers so is take jokes way too seriously. When you have one person who likes the other there should normally be some sort of repent or depression if they reject you. Now naruto irritates sakuea all the time for dates and she tells him to piss off but this doesn't have aby major reaction for him he just acts noramlly and eats ramen happily. Then he says yeah this is my girlfriend and she gets angry and wacks him he says yeah sorry I was joking...again all these funny moments naruto doesn't take it seriously
2. the promise of sasuke. Naruto promises sakura to reunite her with sasuke, however he didn't go to her first, she went to him and cried. He pitied her. Everyone did. He said ok to her request but his motivation was to bring sasuke because he was his best friend. Not romantic at all
3. Meeting His parents. ...more

Yeah, but Sasuke and Sakura would be better - Animefan12

I didn't watch the Naruto ending but I heard that Sasuke and Sakura did end up together, so that's not what this list is talking about, we're talking about the popular shippings which don't happen. - Silverbullet96

This couple sucks. anyone who thinks its healthy need to see the doctor. Naruto chases after her because she likes his rival and she doesn't even want him in the first place. And yes he tried to kill her as four tails as well, not just sasuke. he never even attempted to hurt Hinata.And he actually liked her as a person by understanding her nature not just winning a prize. If they happened sakura would call him sasuke in bed and naruto would be miserable if hinata married someone else because the one he truly loves is hinata and we actually saw that happen too

For anyone that says Sasusaku is better, Narusaku is healthier. After all, Sasuke did try killing Sakura a few different times. Plus, he never noticed her affection in the original Naruto. But, what's done is done.

5 Sasuke Uchiha & Ino Yamanaka - Naruto Shippuden

No

6 Atem & Isis - Yu-Gi-Oh!
7 Yami Yugi & Ishizu Ishtar
8 Roy Mustang and Riza Hawkeye - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

BEAUTIFUL SHIP. I don't care what anyone says, they're married in my head haha.

I love this pairing my OTP

My favorite otp

9 Ash Ketchum & Dawn - Pokemon
10 Eren Jaeger & Annie Leonhart - Attack on Titan

BEAUTIFUL SHIP!

Shifter x shifter= perfection

Makesi more sense than Eremika

The Newcomers

? Izuku Midoriya & Momo Yaoyoruzu - Boku No Hero Academia

The Contenders

11 Inuyasha & Kikyo

It's not fair. Kikyo never ever even deserves to be killed off ever again. I'll never ever even forgive Rumiko Takahashi for killing Kikyo off at all.

12 Mako & Gamagori - Kill la Kill

At least it hinted they could become a couple at the end of the end credits in Episode 24.

The guy that added this is a troll for one INCEST! - Hoxton

Ryuko and mako forever

13 Sesshomaru & Kagome - InuYasha

I know that Rin and Sesshomaru are a popular paring, but since Rin and Kagome have near identical personality this paring can work.

No

I love this couple,my Inuyasha OTP

I love this couple as well. I mean I feel like deep down Inuyasha will always love Kikyo even if he is now married to Kagome. I feel really bad for the both of them :(. I see Inuyasha and Kagome as friends and I think that her and Sesshomaru would be a good together. I also prefer Inuyasha with Kikyo.

14 Misty & Ash Ketchum - Pokemon
15 Naruto Uzumaki & Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto

I mean, come on everybody. In chapter and episode 3, these two were born to be together. They were the first two people to have a canon kiss and the series is split between these two. Both are constantly thinking of each other. They have made huge impacts on one another. People say opposites attract and that it's good to have things in common, so that's why they should be together. Sasuke is the complete opposite of Naruto and yet their childhoods were both full of loneliness. Hell, in the final fight Sasuke saw himself standing right next to Naruto.
Not enough proof? What about their abilities? Naruto's wind style has Chidori beat and yet it is the only one that can "assist and magnify fire". That indicates their relationship. No? What about the huge U-turn Sasuke made just to be with Naruto? That clearly shows that Sasuke has no idea what he's doing unless he's next to Naruto. Clothing? Orange and blue are complimentary colours - Naruto and Sasuke. In part 1 Naruto wore orange ...more

I have to vote for them :/ They are just too adorable

One of the rare naruto pairings that actually makes sense, they're soul mates and complete each other.

They're cute together, but I know that Masashi Kishimoto can't put them in a relationship

16 Kyou Fujibayashi & Tomoya Okazaki - Clannad
17 Kaito Kuroba & Akako Koizumi - Magic Kaito

I love this couple! Even that hakuba loves akako, don't mean kaito and akako can't be together forever! Akako sometime acting sucks, but kaiti not kill her! Yea you all know that kaito is a yandere (it's for me. I think kaito is suck and sadistic. But I think his better with akako than aoko).

18 Tomoyo Sakagami & Tomoya Okazaki - Clannad
19 Ami Kawashima & Ryuuji Takasu - Toradora
20 Gray Fullbuster & Lucy Heartfilia - Fairy Tail

Well, nothing is canon unless Mashima declares it so. So Gray and Lucy can be just as fanmade as Gray and Juvia, or Natsu and Lucy. They all had plenty of moments, but we'll wait and see.

Canon or not. I really love this couple

I like this couple.

Honestly, I don't like this couple, but it's wayyy better than NaLu. I just think that Natsu and Lucy should stay friends, and I personally hate Juvia. So GraLu isn't as bad. I like GraLu or Gratsu to be honest.

21 Aya Toujou & Manaka Junpei - Ichigo 100

Should mention that this is one of the rare cases in anime where the 'main' couple didn't actually end up together, and the protagonist ended up with one of the secondary female protagonists. This was that 'main' couple. - Silverbullet96

22 Natsu Dragneel & Lisanna Strauss - Fairy Tail

People think that they will end up toghtoer just because narouto end up with hinata what astupid joke -_-

23 Anjou Naruko & Jinta Yadomi - AnoHana
24 Eren Jaeger & Levi Ackerman

27 Ayumu & Tomonori - is This a Zombie?
