Top 10 Times Anime Guys Finally Got the Girl
Guess persistence does pay off! Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we are counting down our picks for the Top 10 Times Anime Guys Finally Got the Girl.
For this list, we’ll be looking at the moments in anime where a lovestruck fool finally manages to earn the affection of his chosen sweetheart. As you can expect, prepare your feels for all many of sickly sweet confessions along with the occasional spoiler.

#10: Nfirea and Enri

“Overlord” (2015-)
Turns out all you really need to do to win the heart of a fair maiden is risk your life against a troll. Who would’ve guessed? While silently pining for the strong-willed Enri from the sidelines (as well as behind that overhanging fringe of his) Nfirea finally got his chance when he tried to sacrifice himself for her sake; the aftermath of which promptly launching him from the friendzone all the way to prime boyfriend material. Careful Niffy, anymore charm and you might find yourself warming the village chief’s bed next!

#9: Haida and Retsuko

“Aggretsuko” (2018)
There’s one in every office space. For the majority of this hit Netflix series, Haida was nothing more than a loyal friend who tried to help the emotionally inept Retsuko whenever possible, all the while harbouring some pretty strong feelings of his own. Heck, he was even willing to concede defeat when it looked like Retsuko had found the perfect man. However, after a lot of hilarity, montages and humbling heartbreaks, Haida finally gets his chance to confess to the red panda of his dreams. Don’t you dare do our boy dirty in Season 2! Don’t you dare!

#8: JP and Sonoshee

“Redline” (2009)
You’d think that a cool cat like JP would have all manner of intergalactic babes wanting to ride his hyperdrive. After all, just look at that magnificent hair! However, the only one he’s ever had eyes for is the galaxy’s infamous Cherry Boy Hunter. After finding themselves competing in the deadly, planetary race known as Redline, the two not only get to show off their slick driving skills, but also find time to admit they’ve both got the hots for each other. Have to admit, winning the greatest race in the universe with the girl of your dreams on your lap makes for one hell of a first date.

#7: Krillin and Android 18

"Dragon Ball Z" (1989-96)

Given the amount of times this guy was beaten, impaled, crippled, and outright blown up, it's only fair that he was the one to end up with the sexy blonde killer robot at the end of it all. While he had originally planned to fry her with an insta-kill switch, Krillin just couldn't resist that tantalising terminator, choosing instead to spare her. Sure, this allowed Cell to achieve his Perfect form and led to a whole lot of unnecessary death - but who cares! So long as Krillin got his well earned, celebratory booty call.


#6: Okabe and Kurisu

“Steins;Gate” (2011)
Admit it, you would risk the spacetime continuum for her as well. After finding a way to alter timelines by sending texts back to the past, resident mad scientist Okabe thinks he’s found the means to rise up to the pinnacle of the scientific field…until it all comes crashing down when a sinister organisation sends its enforcers to put the kabosh the whole operation. Throughout all his time-hopping efforts to right this wrong, he finds a true companion in fellow scientific prodigy Kurisu. This all culminates in a truly tender confession when they both realise what they have to sacrifice in order to save Mayuri.

#5: Goro and Ichigo

“Darling in the Franxx” (2018)
There’s nothing more satisfying than seeing the best boy turn into man. While very much aware that Ichigo had feelings towards Captain Bland Hiro, Goro was still willing to keep his silence for the sake of their friendship and her happiness. That is, until Hiro suddenly fell in love with the sassy hybrid Zero Two, who then turned into a spaceship and promptly flew off into another dimension. Don’t ask. As such, Goro stepped up to the plate in order to aid humanity’s resurgence over the barren Earth…but not before putting the moves on Ichigo. You sly dog!

#4: Satou and Todoroki

“Working!!” (2011-15)
While a restaurant is the last place you would expect to find heartfelt confessions, these two crazy kids still find a way to make it happen. While originally coming across as the too-cool-for-school kind of guy, Satou nonetheless manages to cut through all of the show’s running gags in order to land a pretty suave bombshell about his feelings towards the katana wielding chief of staff. One that she promptly returns. That’s real sweet and all, but would you hurry up and get my order! I ordered my food an hour ago!

#3: Inuyasha and Kagome

“Inuyasha” series (2000-10)
From the moment we first saw this high school girl squeeze this half-demon dog’s ears, we knew they were destined to end up together. That and the countless number of filler episodes and love hexagons. Starting off as travelling companions in search of the infamous Shikon Jewel, the two gradually became closer with each and every one of Naraku’s subordinates they brought down. Of course, it wasn’t until the Final Act a decade later that they actually managed to seal the deal. And they call it puppy looooooove~

#2: Ryuji and Taiga

“Toradora” (2008-09)
There’s a lesson to be learned here folks; even if you have a face like a pissed-off bear and the girl you like prefers to punch your face in, there’s still hope for you. While these two fought like cats and dogs for the better half of the series, it soon dawned on them that instead of setting each other up with their respective crushes, they were actually starting to warm up to one another. From there, it wasn’t long until the dragon managed to get himself some lip-locking action with his adorable tiger. Hope all those smooches made up for the time she knocked your teeth in Ryuji.

#1: Ed and Winry

“Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood” (2009-10)
Could he have landed a catch like Winry if he had taken some sexy tips from Xing’s resident playboy? Absolutely. Nonetheless, the older Elric brother still managed to cross that final hurdle by confessing to the girl next door…several years down the line and with the lamest confession in anime mind you, but hey, it still worked wonders. With the Homunculi and Father far behind them, the former Fullmetal Alchemist and Ms Rockbell finally decide to transmutate some lovey dovey-ness into their lives. If you’re asking me though, it might have something to do with his increase in height.
