I do my fair share of shipping, but I only count few select anime couples among my OTPs! There has to be some kind of deep connection for me to be truly passionate about a ship! My #1 favorite anime couple would probably have to be Fairy Tail's GaLe, Gajeel x Levy! On the surface, the whole opposites attract phenomenon seems like the main reason for their great chemistry, but I think it's deeper than that, stemming back to the Phantom Lord arc. I think that a large part of the reason that Gajeel is so protective of Levy is because he doesn't want to see her get hurt again like that. She recognizes that and does what she can in return. They've obviously grown to love and care deeply for each other, and I think they're just adorable!
That's right, another round of honorable mentions!
Seras x Pip (Hellsing Ultimate) **SPOILERS**
If you haven't seen Hellsing Ultimate, I recommend you don't read this or flip through my images and go check it out (it's 10 OVAs, approximately 45 min each). Seras Victoria of the Hellsing organization and French mercenary Pip Bernadotte are amazing together! Pip spent the entire series trying to get a kiss out of Seras, but it wasn't until she was blinded that it finally happened. Sadly, he was dying, and he begged her to drink him so that she would have the strength to win the fight. Because his blood was willingly offered to her, he lives on within her, protecting her forever. I love how he pushes her buttons!
Yato x Hiyori (Noragami)
Anyone who denies this ship is lying to themself! The more I think about it, the more I'm convinced these characters are soulmates! I didn't think about it initially, but I think this is why Hiyori was able to notice him in the first place. She hadn't had a phantom episode until after that incident, and I believe that her becoming half-phantom is caused by her connection with him. Much as Yato can get on her nerves, they obviously deeply care about each other, and I truly don't believe that they could go on without each other. I love them so much!
As always, hope you enjoyed! If you wanna learn more about me/ be my friend/ be tagged in these, please don't hesitate to ask! I'm nice, I swear (mostly ;p)! Or I guess you can follow my 100 Days of Anime collection, or both if you feel so inclined! Until next time!
