Top 10 Best Anime Love Teams

Updated on May 19, 2013

Almost every anime series boasts a cute and sweet love story. Love can encourage even the weakest to face eminent danger and exaggeratedly strong foes. Like what an old saying pertains, love can move mountains and create miracles. Majority of infamous anime heroes get their strength from love. Uzumaki Naruto for example fights without fear and hesitation because he loves his friends and will never abandon them at all cost. This is also true with Ichigo Kurosaki who will even dare to challenge humongous hollows and powerful spiritual entities to protect his family. Monkey D. Luffy will dive in to danger for the sake of his crew. However, this list is all about romantic love. Coming up with the Top 10 Best Anime Love Team was never easy since there are hundreds to choose from. But then again, here are those that stand out on what they did to express their love regardless if it’s mutual or one-sided. Spread the love and I hope you enjoy this list!

Monkey D. Luffy and Boa Hancock sweet moment

It’s tradition that men should propose a marriage but Boa Hancock defies it in the name of love. She is vulgar about her deep affection towards Luffy. Majority of men are dazzled about Boa Hancock’s beauty at first meeting. This is one of her main assets but her charm seems to be ineffective against Monkey D. Luffy. This bashful pirate has a different meaning of beauty. He looks deep into someone’s character and will never judge a person by plainly looking at his appearance. Luffy may not be attracted to Boa Hancock but he treats her as a very good friend. She was the one who saved Luffy after a devastating defeat against the Marines. She comforted Luffy when he thought he lost everything. Boa Hancock’s love for Luffy is so great that she is willing to go against the government just to make sure her dear is safe. Though Luffy rejects each and every one of her marriage proposals, Boa Hancock still admire Luffy and continuously hope that they’ll end up with each other someday.

Hanamachi Sakuragi knows nothing but fist fighting until he met Haruko Akagi. Sakuragi was teased by his friends because of being turned down by countless women who ended up with another guy involved in basketball. And because of this, Sakuragi hates basketball. This perspective entirely changed when he fell in love at first sight to Haruko. She is the school’s basketball team manager so he immediately directed all his attention towards the sport. Sakuragi’s main goal was to impress Haruko but he eventually loved the sport. Though Haruko seems to be more interested to Kaede Rukawa, Sakuragi’s rival, our hero does not include giving up in his dictionary. He will continue to play basketball and impress Haruko until he captures her heart. Haruko is naturally sweet which is probably why Sakuragi often misinterprets her concern as a sign of love. This might be a one-sided love but the Sakuragi and Haruko love team is fun and in some way very sweet.

Uzumaki Naruto may not be as bright and promising compared to his rival Sasuke but his definitely lovable. He is honest, cheerful, and kind. Naruto will do everything possible to save his friends and fulfill his duties as a ninja of Konoha. This is probably what made Hinata Hyuga fell for him. Hinata’s admiration for Naruto can be traced way back when they were just kids. Naruto risked his life and faced an absurdly powerful foe just to save Hinata. From that day on, Hinata immensely blushes if she meets Naruto by accident. She also treats Naruto as an inspiration to be a better ninja. During Naruto’s fight against Pain, Hinata risked her life to help him while confessing how much Naruto means to her. It was a very sad but sweet moment. Hinata is shy while Naruto is very energetic which makes this couple a perfect proof that opposites do attract!

It’s not a surprise that Sakura Haruno is attracted to Uchiha Sasuke. They live in the same village and grown up together. Sasuke is an achiever. In fact, others consider him as a genius during their ninja training. Sakura was amazed not only about Sasuke’s skill but also on his adorable and sweet face. Sad to say, it seems the feeling is not mutual since Sasuke never showed any sign of intimacy towards Sakura. But this is something Sasuke and Sakura love team fans should never be disappointed about since the series is far from its end. Who knows, Uchiha Sasuke will eventually figure out that his feelings towards Sakura is not just friendship but even more. Probably the sweetest Sasuke and Sakura moment is when Sasuke decided to left Konoha and Sakura tried to stop him. That situation clearly defines how much Sasuke means for Sakura and I believe Sasuke felt that strong emotion.

Itsuki and Ringo kissing.

Itsuki Minami and Ringo Noyamano both share the same passion which is A-T. It’s basically an inline skate which exciting features. This sport is lethal since A-T can be used as a weapon. There are several instances in the series where Ringo almost died after a run. Nevertheless, Itsuki was always there to protect here. Don’t get it wrong because Ringo is not weak. She even almost killed Itsuki simply to protect him from further harm and to avoid conflict between their groups.

Itsuki and Ringo are in love with each other. There’s no argument whether this claim is true or not since there have been many situations in the series where both of them expressed their feelings towards one another. Ringo confessed her love and kissed Itsuki. As a response, Itsuki invited Ringo to be his tuner which only means he wants Ringo to be by her side forever. Though most of their sweet moments in the series originate from Itsuki’s perverted mind, their childish quarrels and funny conversations made this couple of the best in the anime world.

Kanou Kyousuke is an aspiring soccer player. He is a striker with exceptional talent. Nevertheless, he is overshadowed by his highly successful brother. His inexperience in soccer and lack of devotion to the sport made him incomparable to his brother. He decided to quit playing the sport until he met Tsujiwaki Miki, a female soccer player. Her dedication towards the sport is far beyond anybody else despite the lack of talent. Kanou decided to be their coach and taught Miki regarding the basics of soccer. In no time, Kanou find himself interested about the sport again. He regretted about all the time he wasted and joined their school’s soccer team for a fresh start. The road was never easy. He never practiced for quite some time so his skills were really dull. Nevertheless, Miki’s encouragement never failed to fill his heart with hope and spirit. They may not be vulgar about their true feelings but it’s pretty obvious. How they silently love and care for one another made this couple even more lovable.

Jellal Fernandes was first introduced as Zeref, the infamous dark wizard. Erza Scarlet knew that it was all a lie since she knew Jellal when they were just kids. In fact, Jellal was her childhood friend as they were both enslaved. Way back then, Jellal promised to protect Erza at all cost. Despite his young age, Jellal would even fight against prison guards and withstand torture just to make sure Erza is safe. Their meeting after more than a decade was not pleasant at all since Jellal was under the control of Ultear Milkovich. Nevertheless, Jellal managed to break free from the spell and reassure his promise to Erza. Jellal saved Erza countless times. Thoughts about him encourages Erza to fight back and stand up against abrurdly strong enemies. Erza is one of the strongest members of Fairy Tail yet her admiration to Jellal can’t be denied. They even nearly kiss during their first confrontation which is a clear indication of the deep affected towards each other they both share.

Kurosaki Ichigo and Kuchiki Rukia met each other in a dire situation. Back then, Ichigo’s sister was targeted by a Hollow because of her strong spiritual power which exceeds an average human. Ichigo couldn’t do anything about it until Rukia decided to share her shinigami powers. Kurosaki Ichigo the substitute shinigami was born that day. Their friendship even grew deeper as they save countless spirits against horrifying hollows together. One of the many proofs that Ichigo hold Kuchiki Rukia dear is when he saved her against the crooked law of the Shinigami world. Rukia was taken by his own brother and his childhood friend who is also a shinigami back to their world as a prison because of sharing her powers to a human. Despite the odds, Ichigo did his best to save Rukia from an impending doom and was successful. He faced absurdly strong opponents and even risked his live in the process. Such act is more than enough to be considered an expression of undying love.

Yusuke Urameshi and Keiko Yukimura are childhood friends. However, they are quite different when it comes to life priorities. Keiko is a hardworking student and an officer in their school while Yusuke is a troublemaker. The only thing Yusuke is good at is fighting which is probably why he ended up as a Spirit Detective after his untimely death.Yusuke wouldn’t be revived in the first place if it wasn’t for Keiko’s love and concern. When Yusuke was invited to join a martial arts competition which will decide who will rule the demon world, Keiko patiently waited. Yusuke promised to return after 3 years and Keiko also made a vow of faithfulness. The two of them eventually met and embraced each other again which was probably one of the most dramatic scene in Anime history. This anime couple is a living proof that true love can wait and that distance and time is nothing against two hearts bound with true and everlasting love.

Kenshin Himura is the infamous Battousai the Man Slayer who played a major role in the Tokugawa era and killed thousands in the process. But the legendary samurai seems to fade away along with the blood sheds. He vowed never to kill again and live as a wanderer until he met Kauro Kamiya, a Kendo teacher. Kenshin saved her life from an avenging pupil and their friendship bloomed from that day on. It’s obvious that both of them have special feelings towards each other that exceed friendship. This was specifically evident when Kenshin Himura left Kauro’s Dojo to seek a man named Makoto Shishio, his predecessor as a man’s slayer. The thing I love the most about this couple is their mutual love and respect. Kauro Kamiya accepts Kenshin’s past and will put anything at risk even her life just to make sure Kenshin won’t come back to his evil past. On the other hand, Kenshin Himura is deeply in love with Kauro to the extent that he would kill again just to protect her from any danger. That’s definitely true love.

Kenshin and Kauro Forever!
