Ah, today is Valentine’s Day, are you snuggling with someone?...


Ah, today is Valentine’s Day, are you snuggling with someone? Gone on a date today? Well, my sister said I’m “bitter” hopeless romantic because I tend to be very cynical when it comes to real life romances. But I’m huge romance advocate… on fiction world that is. As part of my LOVE-ly post to commemorate the love month, I’ll be dishing some romance centric posts. And I’ll start now by sharing y’all my top OTPs (from my very long list).

(But Mitchii isn’t that supposed to be just one? I just love to ship! xD) So yeah, here they are: (also kinda spoilerish, k?)

Akatsuki no Yona by Kuzanagi Mizuho

  • Couple: Hak & Princess Yona
  • Type: the loyal knight + oblivious princess
  • Canon: Big possibility; but we’re still not there. This has a slow romance!

Favorite Quote:

If anything…it’s the opposite. I want to let them look at you. That old geezer, Mundok, His Majesty Il, those bastards that chased you out of the castle and the people of Kouka.— “Look!” “This is Princess Yona.” “She’s disposed of her hair and has taken up the sword to support the country.” “She’s stronger than anyone.” “Princess Yona is here.”—is what I would tell. — Hak

Bloodlines by Richelle Mead

  • Couple: Adrian Ivashkov & Sydney Sage
  • Type: the intelligent (sometimes uptight?) girl + the careless, dashing type
  • Canon: Last I read was Indigo Spell so that’s a yes!

Favorite Quote:

“I don’t care if you say we can’t be together. I don’t care if you think I’m the most evil, unnatural creature walking on earth. You can think whatever you want, go whatever you want. I’m going to just go on loving you, even if it’s hopeless.” — Adrian

D Gray Man by Katsura Hoshino

  • Couple: Allen Walker & Lenalee Lee
  • Type: the good (with bad alter ego?)/hero type + the good/heroine type
  • Canon: I don’t know, the romance is the least of this story’s priority! Oh yeah, it’s in a long hiatus!

Favorite Quote:

“Whatever happens I’m an exorcist. Even though the paths we follow are different, that will never change. I love…the order that Lenalee and everyone are in. My home. Now and forever. – Allen

Fruits Basket by Natsuki Takaya

  • Couple: Kyo Sohma & Tohru Honda
  • Type: the outcast + “real” good girl

Favorite Quote:

“The thing I do know is to “love” does not mean to love what is before you but also the past and the future.” – Kyo

Gintama by Sorachi Hideaki

  • Couple: Gintoki Sakata & Tsukuyo
  • Type: the lazy, childlike samurai + kickass pretty woman!
  • Canon: Dunno, I don’t think this manga’s priority is romance, but bless Sorachi for he had given as Gin-Tsu related arc! >///<

Favorite Quote:

“If it’s what you want, I don’t mind being only yours.” – Gintoki

Hirunaka no Ryuusei (Daytime Shooting Star) by Yamamori Mika

  • Couple: Suzume Yosano + Mamura Daiki
  • Type: the cool but allergic to girls + country, happy girl
  • Canon: Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! Yes! And I’m happy because we had very tough competition here!

Favorite Quote:

“I thought it would be alright to be a substitute for him. But I couldn’t be “somebody’s substitute” because it’s something that doesn’t exist. That’s the story.” — Mamura

Hachimitsu to Clover (Honey & Clover) Chica Umino

  • Couple: Nomiya Takumi & Ayu Yamada
  • Type: the cool type + the girl in an unrequited love
  • Canon: Maybe? The ending was open-ended. But this has so many feels! He knew how much she loved the other guy. And he fell in love on the way she loved that guy. He watched her watching him. The thing is the other guy was less superior to him but he said that she loved his imperfections! Straight to the heart you guys!!!! (oh btw, this not stalker-ish ok! When they are together he merely observes…this is not the creepy Edward/Christian sort of way!!!!)

Favorite Quote:

“I’ve been watching you for a long time. You just never noticed because you’ve always been watching Mayama in exactly the same way.” – Nomiya
“I had wanted to call him. There were so many things I wanted to talk to him about. And that I wanted to ask him about. But…I kind of hated myself…for feeling that way. Because…thinking about Nomiya-san… felt like a betrayal of myself, of everything I’d felt for the past six years. It made my feelings for Mayama seem like a lie.” – Ayu

Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi

Do I need to tell you?

Soul Screamers by Rachel Vincent

  • Couple: Tod Hudson and Kaylee Cavanaugh
  • Type: the funny death reaper + the too heroic heroine
  • Canon: Almost far-fetched but it happened!
“Forever used to feel like a curse. Now it feels like a promise.” – Tod

Koi Dano Ai Dano by Tsujita Ririko

  • Couple: Tsubaki Haru and Naedoko Kanoko
  • Type: hopeless in love but temporarily in the friend-zone + oblivious girl (doesn’t see herself as love interest) (btw, they are best friends!)
  • Canon: While it is shoujo manga, romance is progressing very slowly but steadily!
“If it weren’t for Nadeoko, I would have not interacted with so many people….To be honest, I think being friendly is bothersome. This is how I pay her back. I want to let Nadeoko interact with lots of people. Because in this troublesome matter, Nadeoko is also my best friend.” – Tsubaki

Btw, I also loved the rival, while I root for Tsubaki, my heart is on the fence for Yabuki.

How about you, do you have many OTP (s) as well? Is it a massive list as well? Please share it to me, maybe we ship the same couple and we can fangirl together!
