Shipping is an important part of the anime world... so what if it's all in our heads?

Relationships come in many forms in Anime (namely the imaginary form) and we thought it might be nice to celebrate some of the more unique ones! 

1. HaruRin: Haru x Rin (Free)

Rin swims competitively, but Haru, who swims for fun, is better than him. TENSIONS arise. Not yet "canon" (when it becomes true in the storyline), but lots of fan service scenes in the anime. Just like this...

2. Touya x Yukito (Card Captor Sakura)

They’re “best friends” in the show, but it’s also pretty much "canon". There are many allusions in the story to Touya and “that person he loves” obviously referring to Yukito. Sorry, Sakura and Shaoran—you never stood a chance.

3. Kuroko x Kagami (Kuroko no Basuke)

Kuroko’s the shadow and Kagami is his light. Awwwwwww…

4. Ymir x Krista (Attack on Titan)

Yep, they’re in love in that anime way that doesn’t make you bat an eyelid, nor need explanation. Huzzah!

5. Hikaru x Kaoru (Ouran High School Host Club)

Fan Service…SO MUCH Fan Service. xD

P.S. Not a complaint.

6. Korra x Asami (Avatar: Legend of Korra)

Awwright, awwright, so Avatar’s not STRICTLY anime, but hey! (That’s the full extent of my argument). Also SPOILER alert—they end up together in "Canon Heaven". Yay!

7. Sebastian x Ciel (Black Butler)

Young Lord Ciel traded his soul and now the demon butler Sebastian must answer his every whim with “Yes, My Lord.” It’s a good deal!

8. Sailor Neptune x Uranus (Sailor Moon)

I saved these two for last because Sailor Moon has been around since the 90’s—likely one of the first actual same gender couples in anime.
