Top 10 Best Anime Ships

The Top Ten
1 Eijirou Kirishima x Katsuki Bakugou - My Hero Academia

Both Kiribaku and Usuk from Hetalia are my world's most favorite romantic gay pairings in existence! Nothing can compare to the infinite perfection these ships are. Kiribaku equals literal pure perfection, and only God knows how infinitely grateful I am for this pairing's existence.

I only like these pairings because of how perfect their souls are for each other - I do not fetishize them at all, as some people might claim. Anyhow, I strongly hope Kiribaku becomes canon in the manga/anime. However, if it doesn't become canon, Kiribaku (and Usuk) will always still remain my No.1 most favorite OTP for all eternity, and literally nothing will ever change that.

Kiribaku forever!

2 Takashi Morinozuka x Mitsukuni Haninozuka - Ouran High School Host Club

This is amazing, although I haven't watched the show. I have seen it on Netflix and it looked interesting.

3 Kotaro Bokuto x Keiji Akaashi - Haikyuu!!

I really like this ship. I feel like they understand each other more than anyone else, so I appreciate this ship very much.

The fact that Akaashi knows so much about Bokuto and how Bokuto respects and admires Akaashi. That, ladies and gentlemen, is true love.

This is simple. They know each other very well. Akaashi knows everything about Bokuto. It's adorable.

4 Victor Nikiforov x Yuri Katsuki - Yuri!! On Ice

It's canon, and they're too cute together. Victor knows Yuri has flaws and he wants to help, even though he doesn't know how to. The chemistry between them is so beautiful that if they don't get married next season, then it'll explode!

This ship is my favorite out of them all. I can't put it into words because, for starters, it would take forever for me to type it all into this comment, and there aren't words to describe my feelings towards this ship.

I love this ship so much! It's really sweet and cute, and I don't really know what else to say.

5 Izuku Midoriya x Katsuki Bakugo - Boku no Hero Academia

This ship is by far the best ship! It has so many layers, and the fact that they're going to be the next wonder duo is just perfect. But are we not going to talk about the fact that Bakugo has cried, what, three times ONLY in front of Izuku? Also, Bakugo was the first person (besides All Might) that Deku shared his secret with! Even after all they've been through, Deku still looks at Bakugo the same, and they're the only ship in MHA with cute nicknames for each other!

I ship this because Bakugo and Deku have the longest relationship compared to everyone else, and even though they are not friends, Deku still cares for him. I personally feel like Bakugo cares for Deku deep inside. It's just his ego about being the best hero that gets in the way of that.

6 Mafuyu Sato x Yuki Yoshida - Given

Yuki saved Mafuyu when they were younger. They were meant to be! This ship is so sweet and sad... a true OTP... RIP Yuki.

They work together perfectly.

7 Sebastian Michaelis x Ciel Phantomhive - Black Butler

I don't and do ship them because Ciel is a little boy and Sebastian is an adult. BUT I do ship them because Sebastian said, "I will always be with you till the day you die, my lord".

Well, I mean this isn't a bad ship. It's just the fact that they both have black hair and kind of dress the same, but differently.

I know that Sebastian is over 100 years old, because he's a demon, and Ciel is only 13, but this ship is so cute.

8 Tetsurou Kuroo x Kenma Kozume - Haikyuu!!

The fact that Kenma joined volleyball because of Kuroo just sparked my interest in this relationship. I think we just need to get over Kenma's deep admiration for Hinata, and then they will be one of the best ships in Haikyuu.

This is just amazing. Kuroo is honestly the only one who really understands Kenma. He is like Kenma's emotional, mental, and physical support. This is amazing.

Pretty cute. Wondering why it's not higher ranking, but it's beautiful. They know each other very well.

9 Haruka Nanase x Makoto Tachibana - Free! Iwatobi Swim Club

Say what you want, this ship is the OTP. Makoto cares so much about Haruka, and Haruka finally reciprocates this love to Makoto in Dive into the Future.

I totally ship this. Makoto is one of the only people who understands Haruka (not to mention he looks out for him constantly)!

I ship them so hard. I ship them with a passion, but I also ship Makoto x Nagisa and Haruka x Rin.

10 Kyo Sohma x Tohru Honda - Fruits Basket

I love how the big man Kyo gets all soft-hearted for Tohru. In the episode where Kyo takes care of Tohru when she's sick, my heart melts! By far, one of the best ships in existence, and I can't wait to see how the 2019 remake ends up!

Between Kyo and Yuki, Kyo needs her more.

The Contenders
11 Rei Ryugazaki x Nagisa Hazuki - Free!

I feel the gayness and love with them. Like, I feel it deep in my bones.

Okay, this one here is just cute because as the anime goes on, their bond becomes stronger. In the anime, Nagisa even convinced Rei to join the Iwatobi Swim Club.

12 Gon Freecss x Killua Zoldyck - Hunter x Hunter

I just want to say that their friendship is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. I would die to have a connection with someone like them. Killua loves Gon unconditionally, and Gon trusts Killua so much. I also want to add that, though the ship isn't canon, there's a lot of subtext and hints which suggest that Killua has developed romantic feelings for Gon. He also values Gon as his most precious friend.

Meruem and Komugi's pairing was purposefully written with the intent of paralleling Killua and Gon. Killua explicitly stated that he wanted to commit a Lover's Suicide with Gon. Fluff and comfort ship! They are absolutely made for each other.

13 Tobio Kageyama x Shoyo Hinata - Haikyuu!!

This one here is quite canon because you will see in the anime and manga that they have a couple of moments. They might have started off as rivals, but as time goes by, their bond becomes stronger. Hinata changed Kageyama's way of thinking. He accepted Kageyama whether he acts like his past self or not. You can see that their trust in each other is so strong, and Kageyama does what is good for Hinata and his team too.

I love their whole friendly competing relationship, and usually, I'm not into the enemy-to-lover thing, but their personalities balance out very well, so I very much enjoy this ship.

14 Naruto Uzumaki x Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto

I love this ship because of how real it actually could have been. It made the most sense, and it's a likable ship. They, being the only people who understood their feelings and what they have been through, is realistic. In 700 episodes of Naruto, they had enough moments to be real (unlike SasuSaku). Do I even have to mention they are (romantically or not) soulmates of each other? Like the sun and the moon, they just have this thing I never saw in any other ship, not just in Naruto but in every other anime.

It's really my OTP just because Naruto would do anything. I really don't like the other ships in the entire series, such as SasuSaku (Sasuke and Sakura) and NaruHina (Naruto and Hinata). They just seem like they were forced. Somehow, my favorite OTP (Sasuke and Naruto) are so close that you can't think they are really close friends, but deep down, a gay couple. Also, Kishimoto (the creator of Naruto) wanted it to happen, but sadly, the editors disagreed. Naruto's VA also wanted Sasuke and Naruto to run away and start a family!

15 White Blood Cell (U-1146) x Red Blood Cell (AE3803) - Cells at Work!

Do I need to explain this? The number of times I hoped for them to kiss is ridiculous.

He literally protects her from everything. They're childhood friends.

Blood is blood. Gotta love that blood.

16 Eren Yeager x Levi Ackerman - Attack On Titan

Ok, this one is definitely quite canon. I've read the manga and I saw lots of Ereri moments. It's not pedophilia because it is when two people are dating but their age difference is 16. In the case of Ereri, no. Their age difference is about 7-15 years. I also think that Hajime is quite interested in these two.

I just started to ship them, even if Levi had to kill Eren in his Titan form. But the way he treats Eren is different from how he treats other people, more like lovers do. I don't know, but I just hoped that they had more time to spend talking about each other's stories.

17 Natsu Dragneel x Lucy Heartfilia - Fairy Tail

I mean, we all ship it (except Nali fans, obviously, just pretend they don't exist for a moment here). There is so much evidence in the manga/anime that Nalu will happen, so in my opinion, Nalu is canon. But I respect Nali shippers' opinions. Maybe if she didn't "die," they would end up together.

Well, these two have gone through many things together and are almost always together. They both balance each other out, and I absolutely love them together.

Honestly, this ship is perfect. How they were destined to meet and all. I personally think this ship is so cute that no other ship is better.

18 Jellal Fernandes x Erza Scarlet - Fairy Tail

Yay! They are so cute, and they have pretty much loved each other since they were kids!

Jerza is literally one of the best things ever. Erza only has two loves: Jellal and cake.

It's perfect! They were made for each other!

19 Gray Fullbuster x Natsu Dragneel - Fairy Tail

I'm sorry if you all don't ship this, but I think it's the most adorable thing since Kirishima x Bakugo.

They are cute together. Since they have always been there for each other since they were kids, Natsu also stops Gray from killing himself with the magic which you use, despite the chance of it freezing him forever. Just look at the bromance!

20 Ochaco Uraraka x Izuku Midoriya - My Hero Academia

I don't understand the hate on this ship. I mean, it's wholesome, non-toxic, and overall, it makes logical sense. I think they look cute together, and they've both saved each other since the very first episode of the anime. They both have each other's backs, and that's cute.

They're meant to be together. Their dynamic is so cute. And the way they motivate each other to become better heroes without even noticing it half the time is sweet and awesome.

This is a wholesome, non-toxic ship, and they're adorable together. They both saved each other, support each other, and love each other as friends.

21 Yuuichirou Hyakuya x Mikaela Hyakuya - Owari No Seraph

They are adorable, and I cry every time I see them together. They just have a lot of cute scenes together.

22 Light Yagami x L - Death Note

Just the tension of the investigation and how they dealt with it and each other is making me happy with this ship!

Sure, L died because of him, but like, respect the drip, Karen. This ship is life.

The hate/love trope is a classic.

23 Inuyasha x Kagome Higurashi - Inuyasha

I also love it! They were made for each other. Maybe from different times, but even the universe wants them to be together.

One of the cutest ships ever! I love this show.

24 Keith x Lance - Voltron: Legendary Defender

They are gay icons. I thought of a funny scenario for them!
Lance: Come on, Keith, let's save the world gay!
Keith: Yeah, let's save the world!
Keith: Wait, you're implying we're gay!

This is my favorite ship. Keith and Lance are so cute together! This should really be in the top 10. Keith's mullet just looks gay, and Lance uses face masks before going to bed, which gives me gay vibes.

I've never been so mad about a ship not meeting endgame as much as I was for Klance. I really did love this ship. It was very wholesome and interesting. #Klance was canceled.

25 Sasuke Uchiha x Sakura Haruno - Naruto

Honestly, the best ship in Naruto, in my opinion, is Sasuke x Sakura. Their love story is the most developed one. If you read the manga, you can see how much Sasuke loves Sakura - noticing when she was in a bad mood, complimenting her abilities, and even going as far as to wink at her to make her happy. The way he smiled at her when he saw her smiling, etc. There are so many misconceptions about this ship. Some people talk about how "Sasuke tried to kill Sakura," but the two times it happened, it was out of self-defense. He never intended to hurt her. The same man's goal was to kill Naruto. He tried to kill Kakashi, Karin, literally everyone.

He also referred to her as someone "dear to him" in the battle against Gaara, etc. Honestly, if you can't understand their romance, just read the manga.
