Top Ten CLAMP Couples (Top Ten #54)

News, Top Tens and Morgan's Fun ReviewsLeave a Comment

CLAMP is so near to my heart and it embedded itself into my cells, flows through my veins, and allows my soul to speak.  My first manga was Cardcaptor Sakura and their manga-ka? CLAMP.  I have never looked back, willingly going the rabbit hole into their Wonderland of deep thinking stories, stunning artwork/costume design, endearing characters, and cultural references. They are a HUGE reason I am such the otaku I am today, the true me I was born to be and the ladies of CLAMP my angel guides. Thank you! <3

Romance is a large part of the CLAMP Universe.  All these couples are either CANNON OR heavily hinted in the manga or anime! The girls are listed first.

Here are my Top Ten CLAMP couples:

#1. Sakura and Syaoran Cardcaptor Sakura AND Tsubasa: Reservior Chronicles







#2. Chi and Hedeki- Chobits




#3. Utako and Akira- Man of Many Faces AND CLAMP School Detectives






#4. Nagisa and Suoh- CLAMP School Detectives






#5. Fuu and Ferio- Magic Knights: Rayearth







#6. Suishou and Iorogi- Kobato







#7. Nadeshiko and Fujitaka Kinomoto- Cardcaptor Sakura






#8. Hikaru and Lantis- Magic Knights: Rayearth







#9. Princess Tomoyo and Kurogane- Tsubasa: Reservoir Chronicles






#10. Kobato and Fujimoto- Kobtao


Honorable Mentions (there are several):

*Okay, so the work Angelic Layer has four student characters: Misaki (the main character), Tamayo (her best friend), Kotaro (the boy-next-door type that is friends with our two elementary ladies), and Ohjiro (A high school student who excels at Angelic Layer).  In the manga, Misaki gets with her sweet classmate Kotaro (who REALLY likes her) and Tamayo with Ohjiro, BUT! In the ANIME, they switch partners: Ohjiro confesses his love to our main lady, Misaki, and the tomboy Tamayo reveals she has loved her childhood friend, Kotaro, forever, confusing him, but he DOES pick her (sorry; spoilers!) Both of these couples are TECHINALLY cannon, but I can’t decide which match-up I like the best, SO, that is why, in good faith, I could not put them on the list, BUT! I really do LOVE all four couple possibilities listed here!
