Taichi and Chihaya are from http://www.crunchyroll.com/chihayafuru (Though there's not as much romance as one might initially think. Some call it a cross between a card battle series and a shoujo sports anime, and the combination works on more levels than it might initially sound...I really enjoy it.)

Dang...so the romance factor is extremely low in this anime? It still looks and sounds interesting either way but the romance factor would really hook me in lol. Thanks for answering the question too by the way.



I'll put it this way, in a mostly spoiler-free fashion: Chihaya's in-series nickname is "beauty in vain" - she's thought of as pretty until she opens her mouth, and speaks mostly about her obsession with the game Karuta. Taichi's had a long-standing crush on her, but since she's terribly oblivious, she's never seemed to notice. Add in the other childhood friend who forms this main love triangle, and the sauce of romance is there. It's just simmering rather than boiling with passion - the majority of passion you see revolves around the game, heh.

Blehhhh...I hate love triangles. The anime still sounds interesting though haha. I'll add it to the 'need to watch' list for sure.

The triangle in this case takes a back seat to the game, the tournaments, training, the supporting characters and their backgrounds, etc. (I actually enjoy the insight into some of these characters, because they have history with the main cast, and keep showing up...the extra depth is a good thing.) As for the triangle, it's an undertone running through the story, and I haven't read the original material, but as of this point in the second season, the most you see are some longing looks, and a few sweet moments, like the pics posted. I don't know if it'll get resolved by the end of this season, or if there will be a third. I still think it's worth a watch, either way.

^ A fair answer, heh. The OP never specifically stated "romantic" pairings.

To the rest I'll add:

Kaoru and Aoi in Ai Yori Aoshi had some very cute moments.
Suguru and Mahoro in Mahoromatic, as well.
Kei and Mizuho in Please Teacher!/Twins!

I'm not actually too fond of love triangles either, but the one in Chihayafuru is really great. Though I am in full support of Taichi and Chihaya. :3 Like it was said earlier, romance isn't the focus, but Chihayafuru is my all-time favorite anime. The emotions, friendships, intensity, and everything is done really well! And the romance, when it does show up is amazing <3 You should definitely give it a try! :D

It was voted Top Show of 2012 at this blog, with votes from anime bloggers. ;)

Well, for a non-cannon pairing that hasn't happened yet, and possibly might not in the series run, I'd have to pick Ichigo and Rukia from Bleach.



Though Renji and Rukia is a close second for me.



For cannon pairings, I'd have to pick InuYasha and Kagome from InuYasha,



Kira and Lacus from Gundam SEED/Gundam SEED Destiny,



As well as Athrun and Cagalli from Gundam SEED/Gundam SEED Destiny,



And Tsukasa and Subaru from .hack.

In The World game:



In the real world:



I couldn't find a good picture of the real them together from the anime, so I had to put up this one I found on Deviantart by Lynn Strife. All credit goes to her. Yes, they are both females. XD

I'm still kinda new and havent watched a lot of anime with couples in it but I'm watching Maoyu right now and really enjoying the chemistry between the Demon King and the Hero


Maoyu is awsome

Renton & Eureka
Ryuji & Taiga
Kirito & Asuna

Zero & Yuuki "would" be nice

Maybe for a future couple depending on how the anime turns out:
Yoshino and Hakaze
Manabe and Kotorua


Yoshino and Hakaze would be ideal I feel like Hakaze is somehow connected to Aika other than the obvious. Like they're related somehow and Aika is the mage of exodus and is alive idk lol


And as for my own suggestion

Kanda and Nanamin ( im on my phone can't post a photo of them :[ )
