The second of our 3-part Valentine Special puts on the spotlight our Unofficial Anime Couples.

Everyone knows these two are meant to be. The pair in question just do not want to admit it out loud. Can also be for those who are in the “mutual understanding” stage.

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!

  • Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun
  • Gundam Build Fighters
  • Isshukan Friends
  • Mikakunin de Shinkoukei
  • Tokyo Ravens

Mikakunin de Shinkoukei - 01Mikakunin de Shinkoukei - 02Mikakunin de Shinkoukei - 03Mikakunin de Shinkoukei - 04

Couple: Hakuya Mitsumine x Kobeni Yonomori

Series: Mikakunin de Shinkoukei

The story of Hakuya and Kobeni was one of the sweetest of 2014. When I first started watching I didn’t know how I felt about the series. Kobeni in particular didn’t seem that special because there really wasn’t anything about her that stood out. However, her reaction to this newly born situation was something I could relate with. Their relationship built up slowly and neither of them forced the issue. Instead it became a kind of “see how things go” type deal. By the end it seemed less like an arranged marriage and more of a love interest.

Couple: Yuuki Hase x Kaori Fujimiya

Series: Isshuukan Friends

Persistence is something to strive for. Yuuki’s genuine care for Kaori’s affection was beautiful. To live through week after week of the one girl he wanted to like him forget who he was entirely must have taken a toll. However, each week he would ask her the same thing, a simple request, to be his friend. I know that these two were meant for each other, and I hope they finally come together in the end.

Couple: Umetarou Nozaki x Chiyo Sakura

Series: Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun

I’m not sure how many of you will agree with me on my final, number one decision but these two were the reason Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun was one of my favorite anime of 2014. I loved that their relationship was built upon hilarious misunderstandings and polar opposite personalities. I truly think that these two will get together in the end and create one of the greatest comedic couples.

Couple: Yuuki Hase x Kaori Fujimiya

Series: Isshukan Friends

Will you be able to keep asking someone to be your friend even if they lose their memories of you each week? The persistent and jolly Hase manages to slowly break open Kaori’s facade to reveal a shy and innocent girl who wants to make friends as much as everyone else. How I wish the manga ends with them finally knowing each other’s feelings and becoming officially together.

A childhood promise, secret identities, and spiritual powers. These two may have been tangled in the complex world of spirits, truth and lies but their feelings for each other are so true that they can both bring forth a miracle for the other.
