    Default Most Popular Anime Couples

    So which pairings are most supported and well-known? Fan couples are included because I'd argue the most popular anime couple is a fan couple.

    AshxMisty is #1

    #2 spot is trickier but I'll take a guess and say InuyashaxKagome. For better or worse romance in anime almost always includes their names and they did have a beautiful song in the anime that helped

    Renton and Eureka from Eureka Seven. For Characters that are actually engaged with each other.


    Now as for fan pairing only. I'd probably say Yuki and one of either Zero or Kanami from Vampire Knight.

    Kenshiro and Yuria, if only because their dynamic's about as old, maybe older, than Mario and Princess Peach.

    Sasuke and Naruto. Sad, very sad, but true.

    As for canon couples... I dunno, Mamoru/Usagi, perhaps?

    I dunno. Even the legions of yaoi fangirls for SasuNaru don't compare to the following Pokemon had and most of those people were behind Ash/Misty. Well there is some Ash/May or even Ash/Dawn but I think most people quit watching by then.

    Sasuke and Naruto? They are rivals who oppose each other. Them being couples. That is not pleasant. Unimaginable.

    How many Vegeta/Bulma fanfictions were written?

    I rest my case.

    What do you mean?


    They were truly engaged with each other in the series. But the fanfictions make them out to be more than they did in the show.

    Basically, what I meant was that the couple was popular enough to basically spawn an amount of written work to classify as a library.

    The thing had its peak in the late nineties/early 2000s last I recall.

    I doubt that Ash/Misty is the most popular anime couple in the world.

    I don't know which couple is the most popular but it's not the Ash/Misty.

    Agreed the pokemon fanbase is neither large enough nor unified enough to take the number one spot.

    No idea what the number one spot is. Vegeta/Bulma is a solid contendor though.

    I don't see how Ash and Misty doesn't take it. Pokemon's fandom is vastly larger than any other anime by simple virtue of the fact pokemon's fame exceeds any other anime to my knowledge.

    The highlighted part is the problem in your argument.

    Just because you don't know about an anime with a larger fan base than Pokemon doesn't mean that there isn't one.
    EDIT: Hell, you might even be overestimating the size of the Pokemon fanbase and/or underestimate that of other animes.

    And like Nik Hasta said, the Pokemon fans are too divided concerning the Ash/Misty shipping anyways.

    Well that's because there probably isn't one. Pokemon was a sensation beyond any other. But I'llmake an actual topic for that.

    Stil, it's not just Pokemon fans I'm counting. You'll find rival shippers in every fandom. I'm thinking of the casual anime fan or even just a regular kid who grew up in the Pokemon craze in the late 90s like I did.
