The Top Ten

1 Teresa and Clare - Claymore Teresa and Clare - Claymore

The most beautiful relationship ever. A subtle yet strong and protective love.

2 Portgas D. Ace and Monkey D. Luffy - One Piece Portgas D. Ace and Monkey D. Luffy - One Piece
3 Edward and Alphonse Elric - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood Edward and Alphonse Elric - Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood

Anyone who has watched Fullmetal Alchemist/Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood knows how far these brothers would go for each other. They saw the hell itself and came back together. - Tia-Harribel

4 Lelouch Lamperouge and Suzaku Kururugi - Code Geass Lelouch Lamperouge and Suzaku Kururugi - Code Geass

Their relationship is complex.Some people say they hate each other but that's not true. Lelouch had a affectionate,deep bond with Suzaku throughout R1 and later in R2
The fact that Lelouch entrusted his sister and the world's fate to Suzaku shows trust. - Tia-Harribel

5 Natsu Dragneel and Erza Scarlet - Fairy tail Natsu Dragneel and Erza Scarlet - Fairy tail

Their bond supasses the idea that blood is thicker than water, Erza and Natsu both rely on and respect each other despite their immense individual strength. It is nice to see that sometimes platonic relationships are just as beautiful and strong as romantic ones.

At first,I thought something romantic may sparkle between them but after the later events,it's highly unlikely. Anyway,these two really care for each other. - Tia-Harribel

6 Ken Kaneki and Hideyoshi Nagachika - Tokyo Ghoul Ken Kaneki and Hideyoshi Nagachika - Tokyo Ghoul

According to Kaneki,Hide was his moral support and best friend,you can see their friendship. And the tragiv ending in the manga... - Tia-Harribel

7 Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha - Naruto

Some people argue they were romantic which I thought was true. I mean look,how far Naruto went for him! But they married other people so it's not romantic.
I believe their relationship goes beyond romantic limits. It's not even brotherly.It's something beyond explanation... - Tia-Harribel

8 Goku and Vegeta - Dragon Ball Goku and Vegeta - Dragon Ball

Platonic? More like rivalry... Those two fight all the time... - Goku02
