Look at the anime and shows you love. Love is possible, no matter how opposites attract. It’s not unusual to fall in love with fictional characters paired together, or even wish they were married. When two characters fall in love, anime fans are filled with joy and sometimes even tears. Although anime shows often cover a wide range of genres, a little romance or anime relationship can make things even more interesting.
This list includes the 30 most adorable anime couples. These characters must be officially a couple, or at least strongly implied by canon information to make this list valid. Let’s get to the point:
Tomoya Okazaki & Nagisa Furukawa (Clannad)
Clannad is often referred to as one of the greatest anime romances. The story is about Tomoya, a boy who has a bad temper and learns to love his family and friends through his adventures with Nagisa. After helping her overcome his confidence issues, they become closer and eventually marry.
Yuta & Rikka (Love Chuunibyou and Other Delusions).
Sometimes fantasies and delusions can make daily life more enjoyable. Chuunibyo is a Japanese term that refers to people who pretend to be fictional characters in order to live out a fantasy. These delusions plagued Yuta in middle school, but he starts high school with an open mind despite being embarrassed about his past.
He soon meets a girl who reminds of him, and who is also suffering from delusions. When she discovers the truth about his past, a new love story begins. The “delusions”, despite their absurdity, actually bring the characters closer and reveal some of the pasts. They are a wonderful couple because of their mutual weirdness and self-discovery.
Kaoru and HajimeTsunashi (I can’t understand what my husband is saying)
These two should be the core of anime goals. It is not unusual to see a boyfriend/husband depicted as an otaku. It’s rare that his girlfriend/wife really tries to understand him and doesn’t make jokes about it. Kaoru has her quirks too. It is hard to imagine them getting into a squabble. They look like such a happy couple.
Takeo Gouda & Yamato Rinko (My Love Story)
In shoujo anime standards, male lovers are often referred to as “pretty guys” who attract the heroine’s interest. Shoujo is often told from the viewpoint of a woman falling in love. This is sometimes false in some cases. My Love Story features a central character with a big heart, and a handsome man who is unusually charming.
Yamato, a petite and sweet girl, instantly draws Gouda’s attention. She was afraid she would fall for Gouda’s friend. Instead, she falls for Gouda and it makes for a wonderful, refreshing love story. It is almost shocking to see how much Yamato and Gouda love one another. Gouda’s friend “bishounen”, supports the pairing.
Haruhi Fujioka & Tamaki Suoh (Ouran High School Host Club)
Ouran High School Host club has one of the most amazing relationships that anime have. A story about Haruhi, a schoolgirl who breaks an expensive vase and has to work for the host club. She meets Tamaki Suoh (an eccentric president) and quickly becomes friends with all of them. The story is about Tamaki and her love for Tamaki, despite their denials. They eventually marry at the end of the manga. Haruhi’s father was shocked by their love. They are a wonderful complement to each other and add to the uniqueness of the anime.
Yato & Iki Hiyori (Noragami)
Iki Hiyori, a high school student, met Yato one day. He changed her life. One human saw a god that looked just like a human and decided to put her life at risk for him. This led to her soul being separated from her body.
They have a great chemistry. Hiyori is the calm, level-headed student who wants to go back to normal. Yato, on the other hand is a goofy god that dreams of being rich and surrounded with wealth. Yato falls in love with the human girl who appears in his life. Yato is a carefree man with a tragic past and a big heart. The romantic tension is further enhanced by Hiyori’s inability to see his feelings. This is one of the most adorable couples in anime.
Kamina & Yoko Littner (Gurren Lagann)
Gurren Lagann is an anime classic that features wonderful characters and a wild underground universe. Simon meets Yoko as a sniper girl while he travels from the village below. Yoko is shocked when Kamina moves on her immediately, unable to resist her attraction to Kamina. As time passes, they grow to be close and even share kisses during battle. They are able to complement each other’s outgoing personalities and make a great team for their adventures.
Kakeru & Naho Orange
What would you do, if you were given a letter from the future that provided step-by-step instructions for how to save a friend or fall in love? Naho, a high-school student, received a letter her future self that predicted everything that would occur that day, including her love.
Kakeru, an easygoing, friendly transfer student, begins attending their school. Naho immediately falls in love with him. Naho will do anything to save him. She trusts her judgement to follow the letters even though they force her to be more outgoing so that certain events don’t happen. They are able to share a genuine love that helps them avoid regrets and live life to its fullest. They share a deep love that transcends space and time between Naho, Kakeru.
Mitsuha Miyamizu and Taki Tachibana (Your Name)
They may not be a couple but they have the most beautiful example of love I’ve seen recently. It’s almost as if they are kindred spirits but have met in a supernatural manner. Their introduction was crucial, even though they didn’t meet until much later in the story. To fully understand this film, you have to see it for yourself. I won’t spoil it either. This is why I am only going to express my admiration of this lovely couple and their amazing string of events.
Naruto Uzumaki & Hinata Hyuuga (Naruto Series)
Fans have waited for years to see Naruto and Hinata get together. Hinata is the primary love interest of Naruto, and he has felt feelings for him since they were children. However, it wasn’t until his long journey that Hinata became aware of their relationship. Both of them share a lot of character development, which is why many people are satisfied that their relationship ended in Boruto starting a new generation.
Kurisu and Okabe, (Steins;Gate).
Steins;Gate tells the story of two scientists who are brought together by their shared love for science, despite all odds. Okabe Rintaro meets Makise Kurisu at an academic conference. They discuss theories via text messaging and can change time-lines.
While they initially fight, their romance blossoms through their shared discoveries and long hours at work. Okabe race against the clock to save his friends, especially Kurisu, when things get serious. Even if that means repeating time and again for her to live.
Shota Kazehaya & Sawako Kuronuma( Kimi Ni Todoke)
Sawako, a little girl who looks like The Ring’s ghost, is feared by her classmates. Due to her reputation, she is famous for her ability to communicate with dead people. Things improve when she meets Kazehaya and they start talking. They overcome many obstacles together before they finally fall in love.
Mikasa And Eren (Attack On Titan)
Attack on Titan, the epic anime series has had a huge impact on the anime and entertainment industries. It is hard to find characters with such an iconic status. Mikasa, a young girl, has trouble expressing her emotions and Eren, a young boy cannot seem to keep his mouth closed. The couple’s gap is what makes them such a charming pair. The couple looks more like parents and children than their girlfriends or boyfriends. Observers can witness the passionate bond that they share while watching the series.
Risa Kozumi & Otani (Lovely Complex)
When looking for a partner, it is important to follow the societal expectations and rules. One example is when a man asks a girl out first or two students begin dating. Risa is much taller than Otani, so it’s all about height. Because they share many interests, the contrast between their looks makes them hilarious.
Otani is Risa’s crush despite her many chances to meet other people. They complement one another in many ways. They are able to transform their bickering into love and challenge stereotypes and norms. They make a great couple and enjoy discussing their favorite rappers, menu items, and events throughout the year. Otani can sometimes be a jerk but he loves Koizumi too much to care about that.
Usagi Tsukino (Sailor Moon), and Mamoru Chuba (Sailor Moon).
The love story between Sailor Moon and Tuxedo Mask is truly magical. Fans have adored and grown up with a ship of superheroes who protect one another’s normal form from danger, but fall in love with each other without knowing their true identities until later. The couple eventually weds, and soon they have a child. This is a lasting romance that has been enjoyed by many throughout the series.
Ichigo Kurosaki & Orihime Inoue (Bleach)
Fans can definitely identify with Ichigo and Orihime. They spend time together, fight against each other many times through the series, have chemistry in both romantic and fighting ways, and finally settle down to start a family.
Kirito And Asuna (Sword Art Online)
The story of SAO has many elements that make it more plausible. I believed that Kirito and Asuna met online and fell in love quickly. They also adopted a child there and did some NSFW stuff. Even though they were separated, their strong bond was maintained. Kazuto saved Asuna from being harmed by creepy people while she was trapped in Aincrad/SAO. Although it might not be as spicy as the others, these aspects are familiar enough to make them feel comfortable.
Yuuri and Viktor (Yuri On Ice).
The series shines through the relationship between Yuuri and Viktor. They both support each other in a healthy manner. Viktor does his best to help Yuuri believe in himself and give him confidence. Victor is drawn to the Japanese skater because of his compassion for others. They form an amazing sports anime couple where they can rely on each other.
Yuu Sonoda and Haruka Takayama (Sakura Trick)
Yuu and Haruka have shared their childhoods as friends. Although they realize that they share romantic feelings, Yuu is embarrassed by the secretive and constant kissing between them. After many touching moments, the students discover their deep connection to one another, which blossoms into love.
Zero Two and Hiro (Darling in The Franxx).
It’s a great way to meet your soulmate. Have them jump from a river naked and hold a fish in each other’s mouth. Although it may seem like a one-sided relationship at first glance, it is quite common for people to feel so strongly about each other so quickly. The two characters appear to be like kindred spirits, wandering through the universe together, surrounded only by each others company, despite how depressing and dangerous this can be. It also happens to be quite romantic!
Tohru Honda & Kyo Souma (Fruits Basket)
Fruits Basket is often remembered for being a 2000’s shoujo, which filled bookshelves with manga and cherished memories. Fruits Basket is the story of the Souma family. They are an eccentric group that transform into animals according to the Chinese Zodiac. Tohru is a young girl adopted by the Souma families and who becomes acquainted with Kyo and Yuki. Kyo, the ambitious redhead of the class, is Yuki’s favorite kid. Both develop feelings for Tohru. As they fall in love, Kyo becomes her main man. Tohru helps him overcome both his past and aggressive tendencies. Tohru is Kyo’s best friend and will do anything to help her. They got married, and they are still together until old age.
Celty Sturluson & Shinra – Durara!!
Durarara! Celty and Shinra make a strange couple. She is always wearing a protective helmet while searching for Celty’s missing head in Japan. She falls in love with Shinra, an underground doctor, while searching for it. Celty can’t speak like normal people, but she takes a liking to him. It is fascinating to see the interactions between these cute anime lovers.
Tomoe & Nanami Momozomo (Kamisama Kiss)
A girl is made homeless by her father’s debts. Mikage, who was saved by her, thanked her for saving her life and giving her his home. She arrives at a shrine to meet Tomoe, who is a friend of the man she saved. Even though he is a Yokai, her love for him soon blossoms. He is initially not happy about it but eventually he starts to fall for her. This makes for an amazing romance anime.
Tatsumi & Mine (Akame ga Kill)
In the harsh world of Akame ga Kill it can be difficult to find love, but somehow it finds a way. This anime series has romance but it is unique. Many would expect Tatsumi’s love for Akame to lead to a relationship, but instead, Mine appears. She is cold and harsh at first, but she soon warms up to him. They reveal many sides to themselves during their adventures as assassins. This is especially true when they fight the Night Raid. As they get closer, they also learn more about each other.
Haru & Shizuku (My Little Monster)
Sometimes opposites can attract. Shizuku sees the future and the ability to do the best as the only important things. In class, she sits next Haru, who is a troublemaker who seldom shows up. Haru is asked to deliver papers one day to a classmate. He claims to be her friend. Although he is known to be violent, he can still be gentle. Although Shizuku is well-known for her cold nature, she can also be kind and caring. This sweet romance comedy is about two outcasts who discover each other despite their differences. They bond and go beyond their initial appearances.
Goku and Chichi (Dragon Ball Franchise).
Chichi and Goku are, without a doubt, the most beloved anime couple. It’s sometimes hard to believe that a powerful being such as Goku is scared when Chichi becomes mad. Chichi has been chasing Goku from childhood. He longs for his affection. They eventually settle down and begin a family.
Natsuki Subaru, Emilia (Re-Zero).
Subaru is transported to a world of death and fantasy, leaving him stranded. He is fortunate to have Rem and Emilia as his companions. Although he might be more drawn to Emilia, the mysterious girl who lied about her name (Emilia), you may find yourself choosing Team Rem. It’s canon too. Subaru finds himself in life-threatening situations that only one of these women can save his life, so it’s not surprising things start to get interesting.
Misaki Ayuzawa & Takumi Usui (Maid Sama)
Maid Sama is all about secrets and seperate lives. The anime is set in a former all-boys school, where Misaki Ayuzawa becomes the first female president. Takumi Usui is a popular boy who discovers her secret life as a waitress in a cafe. She doesn’t obsess over his looks like other girls, so they have a few arguments after she reveals her secret.

He struggles to survive while trying to find Yuria.

There is a charming poster couple and a famous love square in Toradora. The two form a close bond when Ryuji, a high school boy with a frightening look, meets Taiga Aisaka.
