These duos have everything from epic battles fought side by side to heartwarming moments of personal growth.
We’ve compiled a list of the Top 12 Anime Couples of All Time, so get ready to swoon and celebrate love in all its forms!
Top 12 best anime couples of all time!
12) Ryuuji and Taiga (Toradora)
Taiga and Ryuji are the definition of opposites attract!
A spunky girl with adorable features and a scary-looking guy who’s actually well-mannered make for the cutest combination.
Ryuuji and Taiga grow because of each other and create a loving environment of understanding and deceptive appearances.
11) Inuyasha and Kagome (Inuyasha)
In what one may only call fate, Kagome Higurashi accidentally goes 500 years into the past and meets Inuyasha, a half-dog demon.
Fate leads them to each other, and through a series of events, Kagome and Inuyasha form a friendship that soon develops into a romantic relationship.
Although many complications crop up while exploring their feelings, their love sustains them, and they get married.
10) Jellal Fernandes and Erza Scarlet (Fairy Tail)
You knew this one was going to make a list. Jellal and Erza’s story is known even by those who don’t watch the anime because of their awkward nature and maturity.
But it’s so much more than that. Jellal and Erza share a past together and still love each other no matter what happens.
Jellal thinks he is unworthy of Erza, and Erza is a strong female lead who needs no rescuing.
Theirs is a relationship based on understanding; they help each other grow.
Of course, fans were very impatient about their romantic developments, but that’s a story for another time.
9) Legoshi and Haru (Beastars)
With many humans on this list, I had to add this adorable and captivating couple dynamic.
Legoshi and Haru are essential ‘Prey’ and ‘Predator’ in their world, and even though laws protect the herbivores from the carnivores, the fact remains that Legoshi internally struggles with his bloodlust.
This greatly impacts their relationship and power dynamic, which brings about the differences between love and lust (depicted as hunger).
Legoshi and Haru find common ground and build their love in a wholesome manner up on equal terms going beyond the predator and prey scenario.
8) Misaki and Usui (Kaichou wa Maid Sama)
Who hasn’t fallen in love with this couple? Misaki and Usui were among the most popular couples in the early 2000s.
Misaki, an independent and strong lead, appealed to the younger crowd, and with Usui’s suave mannerisms, there’s always a comedic and adorable moment with them.
Kaichou wa Maid Sama understood the importance of fan service and let the anime ride on it with the pair.
Misaki and Usui build a relationship on understanding and maturing together without leaving behind their cute childishness.
7) Touka x Kaneki (Tokyo Ghoul)
In a world filled with ghouls and humans, Touka and Kaneki are both misfits who dislike their existence and try their best to endure their struggles.
Touka becomes a beacon of hope for Kaneki and is always there to guide him when he strays.
Kaneki takes on the role of protecting Touka from a very depressing reality.
In their own ways, they do their best to support each other throughout and fight for their survival.
Theirs is an endearing story in a heartbreaking setting.
6) Mafuyu and Uenoyama (Given)
Someone needs to protect them! Mafuyu and Uenoyama are very popular couples for all the right reasons.
The depiction of pain and first love is noticed, but this couple is so loved because Uenoyama doesn’t just try to save Mafuyu.
He encourages Mafuyu to make decisions and break out of his comfort zone.
They learn to grow together and set boundaries as a healthy relationship while trying to understand each other and communicate however they can.
5) Ban and Elaine (Seven Deadly Sins)
Ban and Elaine’s story is probably one of the saddest in the anime.
Ban’s backstory is sad, but meeting Elaine changes his outlook on life and behavior.
She was his brightest part, and he was her breath of fresh air.
Their love for each other was pure and innocent. Losing Elaine devastated Ban, but Elaine’s wish for Ban to live was more important to her than her own life.
If the anime did anything right, these two have a happy ending.
4) Tomoya and Nagisa (Clannad)
You’re missing out on this story if you have not seen Clannad.
Unlike most stories, Clannad focuses on the story after the ‘Happily Ever After,’ highlighting bits and pieces of Tomoya and Nagisa’s adult lives.
This Slice of Life anime starts as a high school puppy love that develops into a mature relationship with adult problems and events.
Tomoya and Nagisa get married and have a child, but death, grief, unemployment, and child-rearing all set in at once, and the anime takes a very sad turn.
It’s a happy ending, but you must watch it to feel the pain.
3) Loid and Yor (Spy x Family)
How do you want your proposal to happen?
What about running away from the bad guys because you’ve hidden your identity while escaping an explosion and using a stolen ring for the perfect moment?
Loid and Yor become a couple because of ulterior motives, and it’s not the one you’re thinking about.
Initially, there’s no love, but they file for marriage, move in together, and slowly learn about each other while caring for their new kid.
It’s so chaotic, messy, and adorable!
2) Meliodas and Elizabeth (Seven Deadly Sins)
How will you feel after losing the love of your life?
Imagine reliving that moment 106 times under different scenarios because of a curse on your love.
That’s a summary of Meliodas and Elizabeth’s love story.
Meliodas and Elizabeth had an ethereal love that Goddesses and Demons frowned upon, forcing them to participate in the Holy War and fight for their love.
The story of this couple starts comedic but grows deeper with every piece of history being revealed.
1) Meruem and Komugi (Hunter x Hunter)
What a surprise! This is an unusual pair, but they were way too adorable not to make it on this list.
Hunter x Hunter hardly explored romance, but they did an exemplary job with Meruem and Komugi.
Meruem is the king of the Chimera Ants who needs clarification about his identity even though he wields great strength and intelligence.
Komugi is the World Champion of Gungi and is a visually impaired girl who happens to catch his eye because she defeats him in the game several times.
Theirs is not a happy ending, but they find comfort in each other’s presence and become a source of support for each other in a deadly world.
Of course, this list isn’t complete without mentioning Yato x Hiyori, Edward x Winry, Tohru and Souma, Natsu Dragneel x Lucy Heartfilia (a personal favorite), Yuu Koito x Touko Nanami and Viktor x Yuri!!
