I love to pair my favorite characters together. It’s hard for me to pick just one anime couple I ship. For the sake of this post, I’ll talk about Takeo Gouda and Rinko Yamato from Ore Monogatari!! (My Love Story!!). This is one of my favorite anime of all time. Takeo and Rinko are both pure-hearted individuals who are perfect together. Takeo is misunderstood and not liked by many girls. Girls prefer his good-looking, tall and slim best friend, Sunakawa. One day, Takeo is on the train with Sunakawa and sees Rinko getting groped by a creepy man. Takeo steps in to save her and starts beating up the creepy man. After that, Rinko thanks Takeo for saving her and offers to bake him delicious desserts. Slowly but surely, they get to know each other and start dating.
I like that Takeo isn’t like the typical male love interest. He’s handsome in a different way. Takeo is always considerate of others and wants to make the world a better place. Rinko is super adorable – she’s the kind of girl you want to hug. It’s also really cute when they try to hold hands for the first time. Neither of them have any experience so it makes things entertaining to watch. I like them as a couple because they balance each other out. It takes them some time to get together since Takeo thinks Rinko likes Sunakawa. Eventually, Rinko tells Takeo how she feels and everything works out.
Literally every episode is so cute and heartwarming. I love that they don’t have too many major problems. I’m glad there aren’t any love triangles in the show either. It’s nice that the show gets to the point. Some shows take way too long for the couple to actually get together. They’re my relationship goals. Takeo is Rinko’s protector and keeps her safe, no matter what the cost. I think any girl would be lucky to have a guy like Takeo in her life.
Anytime I need a pick-me-up, I’ll watch Ore Monogatari!!. If you haven’t seen it, go watch it and let me know what you think! Takeo and Rinko will continue to live on in the hearts of viewers. I would describe Takeo and Rinko as a magical, adorable, cinnamon roll couple. ❤
