Therefore, their chemistry is tinged with subtle tension and warm feeling, making it an absolute delight for the viewers.
3. Mikasa x Eren (Attack On Titan)
Since there’s a controversy regarding the ending of Attack On Titan, let’s just say one thing. It was always about Mikasa and Eren. Love was at the core of the whole story.
Moreover, Mikasa’s love for Eren doesn’t only show through the gifted scarf she wears around, but the way she goes about protecting Eren at all costs. In fact, it’s their love that changes the course of the canon story in all sorts of ways. No wonder they are an iconic couple.
4. Sawako x Shouta (Kimi no Todoke)
Kimi no Todoke offers a very sweet and intriguing relationship between one of the best best anime couples Shouta and Sawako. Shouta is an outgoing guy whom a lot of girl’s love. However, the moment he sees Sawako, he is attracted to her. Moreover, their relationship helps Sawako get over her insecurity about herself. (as she resembles Sadako from the ‘the ring’ series, according to her friends).
Also, he is very possessive when it comes to Sawako. Though Sawako is unresponsive to Shouta’s feelings at first, gradually, she reciprocates.
5. Meruem x Komugi (Hunter x hunter)
It’s not surprising that the Chimera ant arc was the best arc of Hunter x Hunter. More so because of the well-written character of Meruem. And, to be honest, Meruem’s evolution as a character is solely because of Komugi.
Both Komugi and Meruem share a very special bond. It all started with the Gungi game in which Komugi beat Meruem. Thereafter, they both become friends, and finally, during the last hours of his life, Meruem chooses to be with Komugi.
6. Ban x Elaine (Seven Deadly Sins)
The chemistry between Ban and Elaine is emotionally intriguing. Well, from Ban’s first appearance, you cannot guess that he is so much capable of love. In fact, he can go to any extent to save Elaine, for whom he developed an absolute love.
At first, the relationship may seem awkward, as Ban, a human, falls in love with Elaine, a fairy. Moreover, Ban is ready to pull off an ultimate betrayal to his friends just to save Elaine. Therefore, it was nice to see their ship sailing.
7. Chiyo x Nozaki (Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun)
Suppose you asked your crush out, but it leads to a horrible misunderstanding. Crazy, right? Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-Kun takes this motif to a huge level when the High school girl Chiyo confesses her feelings to Nozaki.
However, Nozaki gives her his autograph (because he is a manga artist). This is how their friendship starts, as Skura becomes his assistant. Though Nozaki is completely oblivious to her feelings, there are hints that their ship might sail. However, there’s no season two for that.
8. Ichigo x Rukia (Bleach)
So, the relationship between Ichigo and Rukia isn’t like a ‘normal couple.’ Rather, it surpasses that. Both Ichigo and Rukia were always there together through ups and downs. Their constant bickering, goofiness, and, most importantly, fighting all the odds to protect each other is an example of their immense love.
No matter how much the hardships pull them apart, destiny brings them back together. However, they share a relationship that isn’t ‘romantic’ but more like best friends.
9. Tomoya x Nagisa (Clannad)
So, there are otakus out there who claim that Clannad is one of the best romance anime of all time. Therefore, it’s only natural we will find one of the best anime couples here.

10. Yato x Hiyori (Noragami)
Iki Hioryi’s life changes when she meets Yato, the God, one day. Mistaking him as a human, she tries to save him from an ongoing car. Remarkably, she survives the accident.

Gradually, Yato falls for the human girl Hiyori. However, she is completely oblivious to his feelings. They are one of the cutest couples of animeverse.

Moreover, they are like fated lovers. The red string of fate only connects them and makes their destiny on the same plane, eventually. The characterization and chemistry are also very strong with them.
13. Yuuko x Teiichi (Tasogare Otome x Amnesia)
Through Yuuko and Teiichi’s relationship, love even transcends the concept of life and death. In the anime, a paranormal club investigates a haunted school building. There, Teiichi encounters Yuuko, a ghost. Despite her spirit being tied to the building, she gradually develops feelings for Teiichi.
Yuuko’s past is tinged with darkness. But, that doesn’t stop Teiichi from loving Yuuko. Rather, he helps her to spirit to be free.
14. Takeo x Yamato (Ore Monogatari!!)
Next, we have Takeo and Yamato. Well, Takeo, with his big, muscular body, may scare people off, but inside, he is a gentle soul. He is perhaps the most kind-hearted person in this anime, who puts others first before him.
Through a stroke of luck, he meets Yamato. Takeo rescues her from bad guys on the train. The small, sweet, and gentle girl becomes his crush. Moreover, she also reciprocates his love.
15. Kurisu x Okabe (Steins;Gate)
