These are a few of the great romantic couples of Western Culture. Who are their anime counterparts? Some possiblilties: Jinto and Lafiel (Crest/Banner of the Stars), Keiichi and Belldandy (Ah! My Goddess), Giroro and Natsumi (Kerero Gunsou), Kyouichi and Harumi (Shingu), Ayato and Haruka (RahXephon), Shichika and Togame (Katanagatari).
Who else? Please post your nominations in the comments. If there are enough couples, this will be the next sidebar poll.
A couple of arbitrary restrictions:
• No children. Syaoran and Sakura make a cute couple, but they’re way too young.
• Heterosexual couples only. No yaoi/yuri, please, and no harems.
