Who’s your biggest OTP in anime?Anon
I’ve previously looked at my favourite couples in anime from 2018 with Ash and Eiji coming up tops and I’ve looked at my favourite romantic anime with Kimi ni Todoke being my favourite and Snow White with the Red Hair being a close follow up. Surprisingly though I’ve never looked at my OTP (one true pair) though so I’ll probably have to do a top 5 list at some point this year on it.
Honestly I don’t know who my biggest one would be. I’ll probably have to sit down with all the options written out and do some pro-con listing to narrow it down and even then I’d probably be dissatisfied with picking just one.
However for this post let’s go with the first pair that popped into my head when I read this question.
Yuri and Victor from Yuri on Ice. I know, who is surprised that these two are the first that come to mind when I think about a couple I absolutely want to be together and get a happily ever after. Seriously, these two are perfect and seeing them together is sheer beauty in and of itself. If anyone even suggested someone else for either character I just don’t think I could take that seriously as they so obviously belong together.
Fortunately, though the anime aired in 2016, the past two years have been full of beautiful fan art and absolutely gorgeous imaginings in fan fiction and the like of what life for Yuri and Victor was like after the final episode. And while none of these events may even be canon, they’ve certainly been enjoyable. Besides, until there’s an actual follow up people can fill the gap with whatever they can dream. And Victor and Yuri make people dream big.
So yeah, I’d have to say these two are the OTP that first come to mind when I start thinking about it. Zen and Shirayuki are certainly high up there as are Maka and Soul, though Maka and Death the Kid could be something (wow, that opens up a whole other can of worms). But really, anime has given us so many fantastic characters and relationships that narrowing it down to just one is nearly impossible.
Still, I’ll turn it over to the readers and ask, who is your biggest OTP in anime? Keep it civil and have fun in the comments.
