    Hello, great fellows of The Colorless.

    After some time of the last CL's mad(est) scientist voting thread(s), I decided that we should have another one of this thing for all to participate in.

    This time, we'll based it on anime couples. You heard me, couples!

    https://s-media-cache-ak0.pinimg.com/736x/f9/8f/13/f98f13b54608394267e4abc53c924253.jpg

    Couples has always been a thing in anime, needless to say, two souls on a journey together, being the most significant to one another. Through hardship of life, it's the very test itself to witness stronghold within them.

    There will be a minimum of 16 couples and a maximum of 32 in total. Here's what you have to do:

    • One user may nominate 2 couples; post a picture of them together in one picture, names and where they're from should be enough, if you want to put additional description for them, feel free.
    • Only anime couples, this means not a game, movies, manga, comic, tv shows, cartoon, 3D, characters (whichever else that can fall into the category that is not anime) etc.
    • Only straight couples, please no yuri and yaoi.
    • Only canon couples are allowed, don't post your fantasy shipping, please.
    • Keep your post safe from NSFW. This is supposed to be a fun thing.
    • And don't be an asshole.

    I'll allow you to nominate old anime couples but please let it be fairly known to others (in majority or so). Also, any posts breaking the rules will be removed.

    Deadline for the nomination will be on Friday, March 11, 2016 (or when we actually reached 32 nominations). That should already be a plenty of time enough for you to decide. Until then, go on and nominate.

    Have fun guys.

    No yaoi? No manga? Oh, all the couples that came to mind...

    Honestly, I don't watch many shoujo anime but here are the couples I want to nominate:

    Mogami Kyoko and Tsuruga Ren

    from Skip Beat!

    https://33.media.tumblr.com/d0699065bad6fa0407ddf33e7a361c59/tumblr_inline_o2hzoqoUtX1s4kpmo_500.gif

    http://static.zerochan.net/Skip.Beat!.full.130740.jpg

    To truly appreciate Skip Beat! as well as this couple, you should read the manga. Many underrate it because of its art style and slapstick humour.

    Kyoko and Ren are two individuals with developed personalities who are held back from getting into a relationship with one another by surface factors. What makes their relationship special is how they complement each other by helping one another through personal issues.

    With them, you really get the feeling that they are two wholes that go well together, and not the typical two halves of a whole.

    Shinohara Erika and Sata Kyouya

    from Wolf Girl and Black Prince

    http://www.anime-th.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/11/shoujo-kuro-ouji-episode-5-cover.jpg

    https://i.ytimg.com/vi/UrQpe3cTxAI/maxresdefault.jpg

    My reason for nominating this couple is relatively shallow, haha.

    Erika feels a lot more real to me than your usual shoujo female protagonist. She feels the social pressure to have a boyfriend. She desperately wants to fit into her clique of friends. Kyouya is sadistic, and doesn't see a problem with blackmailing a girl who willingly came up to him first.

    Of course, they eventually conform to the usual shoujo narrative of slipping into actually loving one another but that's another story for another time. :)

    I'll put an end to this thread for now. Anymore nominations won't be entertained. At least this is already a decent amount of nominations, stay tuned for the start of the voting thread!

    Thank you to all, you're the best. not really but okay
