Anime Couples That Outshined The Main Couple


Here is everything you need to know about the best anime couples which outshined the main couple.

Temari & Shikamaru (Naruto)Temari & Shikamaru

After starting off as rivals in Naruto’s Chunin Exams, Shikamaru and Temari gradually grew into one of Naruto’s best power couples. They’re one of the few cross-village couples in the series and have one of the funniest dynamics. What makes Shikamaru and Temari cute is that neither has a traditionally “romantic” personality, but neither is a flat-out tsundere either.

The two have their own adorable dynamic that separates them from Naruto and Hinata’s more classic romance. They’re also the most intelligent couple in a series full of characters who aren’t so competent outside of battle.

Euphemia & Suzaku (Code Geass)Euphemia & Suzaku

Suzaku and Euphemia’s relationship in Code Geass began with Suzaku serving as her bodyguard and knight. Eventually, Euphemia’s feelings for her knight grew romantic, and the two established their love for one another shortly before it was taken by Lelouch’s Geass.

Euphemia’s brainwashing remains one of the saddest moments in anime, partially because of how beautiful her relationship with Suzaku was. Lelouch and C.C. were good, but the tragedy behind Euphemia and Suzaku is what makes them stand out in an anime with a couple as great as Lelouch and C.C.

Historia & Ymir (Attack On Titan)Historia & Ymir

Attack On Titan’s Historia and Ymir isn’t just one of the best LGBT couples in anime — they’re one of the great tragic couples in the shonen genre. However, when compared with Eren and Mikasa, they didn’t need to be as great as they were to outshine them.

Mikasa and Eren being adopted siblings was reason enough against their romance, but the fact that Mikasa’s crush on Eren started out of trauma makes the couple even worse. Historia and Jean would have been better partners for the series’ protagonists.

Renji & Rukia (Bleach)Renji & Rukia

Renji and Rukia go through a difficult journey in Bleach, including Renji assisting Rukia’s brother in capturing her from the human world. However, Renji more than made up for his mistakes in the Soul Society arc, and his relationship with Rukia eventually blossomed.

Ichigo and Orihime both had special moments as a couple, especially Orihime’s monologue to Ichigo before she left for Hueco Mundo. However, the childhood friends to enemies to friends to lovers arc that Renji and Rukia went through was such a fascinating whirlwind that it’s difficult not to root for them.

Miko & Ishigami (Kaguya-Sama: Love Is War)Miko & Ishigami

While Kaguya and Miyuki are the heart of Love Is War, Ishigami is the comedic king of the series. His love triangle, featuring third-year beauty Tsubame and first-year classmate Miko, is one of the key parts of the story.

Ishigami and Tsubame outshine Miyuki and Kaguya in terms of comedy, but he and Miko have one of the most wholesome dynamics in Love Is War. Enemies to lovers are one of the most beloved tropes in romance, and Ishigami and Miko execute it in a fun slice-of-life setting.
