You know the obvious couples every
- Tomoya Okazaki and Nagisa Furukawa…
- Natsu Dragneel and Lucy Heartfilia…
- Kazuto Kirigaya and Asuna Yuuki…
The whole world shouts about these
I love some of the “typical, popular”
But we’ll be doing things differently here today to avoid boring you to death with “me too” content.
So here’s my list of 11 not so obvious
1. Lina Inverse and Gourry Gabriev (
Lina Inverse and Gourry are from the action/fantasy
Lina and Gourry were the first two characters to pop into my mind when creating this post.
Since this series was created back in 1990’s, you might not know of it. But it’s one of the most popular
And one of the most interesting
2. Kaname Chidori and Sousuke Sagara
Kaname and Sousuke are featured in the Mecha series: Full Metal Panic!
If Mecha’s aren’t your cup of tea, you’ll change your mind after watching this series. As I did.
These two are perfect together. The funny thing is they seem like complete opposites in how they live and what they’re personalities are like.
But that’s what makes them such a good fit. Because Kaname’s common sense attitude is helpful to Sousuke.
And Sousuke’s talent for combat is useful to Kaname in dangerous situations.
They balance each other out, and that makes their bond special.
3. Kenshin Himura and Kaoru Kamiya
Both characters are taken from the historical
What I love about Kenshin and Kaoru’s relationship is how chilled it is. When Kaoru isn’t angry at least. 😉
Kenshin is a cool, calm and collected swordsman who fights with a reverse-ended blade. Making it impossible for him to kill his enemies.
And Kaoru is a kind-hearted woman who loves Kendo and even owned her own Dojo.
I love their chemistry.
4. Krillin and Android 18
But what about poor-old Krillin and 18?
Krillin and Android 18’s relationship is one of the most legitimate there are in
And even though they’re not the strongest
Or even the most talked about
5. Hikaru Shidou and Lantis
Hikaru Shidou and Lantis, one of the main characters in Magic Knight Rayearth: Season 2.
Hikaru’s relationship with lantis isn’t as developed as others on this list.
But it’s worth mentioning because it’s a real thing.
And more importantly it’s one of those “not so obvious”
I would have loved to see Hikaru and Lantis’s relationship develop into something bigger.

6. Tatsumi and Mine
Mine is one of my favorite female characters. Tatsumi isn’t one of my favorite male characters.
But I do like both of them together.
Similar to Hikaru Shidou and lantis, Tatsumi and Mine’s relationship didn’t get much light.
And other reasons I won’t go into to avoid spoilers.
That being said, Mine and Tatsumi’s moments will hit you right in the feels.
And will leave you wanting more from their relationship which had so much potential.
7. Shinichi Chiaki and Megumi Noda
When you first watch Nodame Cantabile… The last thing you’ll be thinking is “wow, what a great couple.”
In fact it’s a little one-sided at first. Mostly because Chiaki is so damn stubborn and reluctant.
But as the
Chiaki and Nodame, for me, are one of the best not-so-obvious
And the way their relationship develops avoids typical, over-used cliche’s which I LOVE.
8. Nagasumi Michishio and Sun Seto
Nagasumi almost drowns one day in the ocean. And is luckily saved by a mermaid known as Sun Seto.
Sun Seto’s a part of the Seto-Gang (Yakuza). Nagasumi’s life (and relationship) takes an unexpected turn from there.
My Bride Is A Mermaid is a favorite
But beyond that Sun Seto and Nagasumi’s relationship is crazy to watch.
Sometimes heart warming. And other times so relatable and realistic.
It’s “young love” at its finest with enough comedy to make you spit out your drink.
9. Miyuki Kobayakawa & Ken Nakajima
When you watch a great
You’re Under Arrest is exactly like that. And I can’t but wonder how it would have turned out in an ideal world.
Miyuki and Ken are police officers who’ve always been interested in each other.
But they’re both either too damn stubborn or too focused on “work” to ever air their confessions.
And they’re bond with each other shows how compatible they are.
10. Masamune Makabe & Aki Adagaki
This isn’t a “real”
Masamune cares a lot for Aki. And Aki is more than a “little” interested in Masamune.
As proven through so many events that play out within the
I’d recommend watching Masamune Kun’s revenge if you’re into comedy and romance.
11. Oda Nobuna & Sagara Yoshiharu
And finally, Oda Nobuna and Sagara Yoshiharu.
Oda Nobuna is a historical
You’ll find lots of comedy and hilarious moments in Oda Nobuna. Plus mild romance and violence.
But the moments where Oda and Yoshiharu spend together make this
They’re not as famous as other
But then again, the
What other not-so-obvious
Yuichi and Ayu from Kanon comes to mind!
