It’s Valentine’s Day! This is officially my 33rd consecutive Valentine’s Day as a single. But these characters have been spending their time with their very special loved ones for years. Who are the best canon couples in anime history? Read on to find out.
10. Syaoran & Sakura (Cardcaptor Sakura)
Not my OTP, but these two became very cute as a couple as the series went along. I had to eventually give in and accept them as a pair.
9. Saito & Louise (The Familiar of Zero)
Again, not my OTP (Siesta >>>>> Louise), but you can’t deny that they have an interesting form of chemistry between each other (I’m being nice here).
8. Yamato & Suzuka (Suzuka)
For the third straight time, not my OTP (I prefer Honoka), but given that they spawned a series named Fuuka, I’m giving them their rightful day in the sun.
7. Soichiro & Yukino (His and Her Circumstances)
Ah, love. I never finished His and Her Circumstances, but it was as romantic as I’ve ever seen an anime. I got to get back to it and finish it.
6. Shikamaru & Temari (Naruto)
If Temari could only just show up again sometime in Naruto: Shippuden, I’d be very happy!
5. InuYasha & Kagome (InuYasha)
Well, of course. I shipped InuYasha x Kikyo, but Kagome eventually won my heart. She has a knack at doing that.
4. Renji & Rukia (Bleach)
The “other” canon couple of Bleach. They are quite the pair themselves.
3. Naruto & Hinata (Naruto)
I shipped it from ep 1, and it paid off. The two got together, and now we have Boruto.
2. Miroku & Sango (InuYasha)
My first shipping in all of anime was these two. A great pairing, but it can’t quite beat my #1…
- Ichigo & Orihime (Bleach)
ICHIHIME IS CANON! I’ll shout it from the rooftops! ICHIHIME IS CANON!
