The first of our 3-part valentine special features preferred anime couples.
Love just isn’t on their minds right now? Or maybe there is chemistry between them but the other is already “tied” to another? Is there a reason or two that these two are not yet together? All aboard! These pairs are meant to be shipped. Here’s our top 3 preferred anime couples.
WARNING: Although these characters are not officially a couple, that may in itself be a spoiler. If you don’t want to be spoiled on the following anime please finish them first before continuing!
- Aldnoah Zero
- Amagi Brilliant Park
- Log Horizon
- Seitokai Yakuindomo
Couple: Yato x Hiyori Iki
I’m sure I’m not the only person who wishes Yato and Hiyori got together. Especially considering it might still happen in the end. When watching Noragami the connection between Yato and Hiyori was shooting sparks since the beginning. They have a very comedic yet caring relationship, and watching them look out for one another as well as Yukine would make my heart grow 10x the size. They seem the kind of couple that would go through hell to get the other back when push comes to shove. Above all, Hiyori never saw Yato as the demon everyone else did. He was more than a killer and she saw beyond his past life. Surely these two deserve to be together.
Couple: Seiya Kanie x Isuzu Sento
Series: Amagi Brilliant Park
I knew I wanted to add these two to my top three list of 2014, and they squeezed in just before the cutoff date. Their relationship wasn’t anything epic; it was simple and sweet. It was really Sento that made this pairing for me though. She didn’t seem to ask for much, and truly only cared for Kanie’s approval and praise. It as such a simple notion that made her work so hard for the park even on the brink of giving up. The quick glances and blushing from Kanie made you realize he cared for her just as much.
Couple: Takatoshi Tsuda x Shino Amakusa
Series: Seitokai Yakuindomo
I know this probably seems like a very odd pick for the number one spot of preferred couples considering this is the most comedy of comedy anime. However, something about these two constantly makes me think “what if”. Ever since I started Seitokai Yakuindomo I thought these two would make a great couple. The series even teases you with these sweet moments between them that makes you want this to be a thing even more. Unfortunately I know this will never be a thing so for now I’ll live in my own personal bubble of Tsuda x Amakusa.
Couple: Shiroe x Akatsuki
Series: Log Horizon
She swore to serve as his ninja in exchange for the freedom from being trapped in a male body. As the series progresses, Akatsuki discovers that her feelings for Shiroe have slowly grown into something much more especially in the face of a rival. Sadly, the Enchanter, despite his brilliant mind, remains clueless of this and Akatsuki’s love remains unrequited. I’m definitely cheering for our cute ninja to finally win the heart of the aloof and evil genius.
Couple: Yato x Iki Hiyori
She was the first human who tried to save him and her life has changed since then. A fate intertwined with a god of war (now a delivery god) created a chemistry that anyone would wish to see take fruit.
Couple: Kaizuka Inaho x Vers Allusia Asseylum
A modern-day Romeo and Juliet whose love has yet to fully blossom in the middle of war between Terrans and Martians. The stoic Inaho finds himself looking out for the Vers Princess in the guise of cooperation to stop the war. Was it too late when he smiles as he recalls their moments together by the end of the first season?
