The only pair in the list. Why? Well as they say in the anime, they are the “Blank” together, they are one. The Brother-Sister couple from “No game no life” are surely among the tops. Together they are unbeatable. They way they always think one steps ahead of everyone is something I really enjoyed.

3. Light Yagami

Hi this is Phoenix, one of the co-founder of AnimeHound. I like to watch different kinds of anime and analyze them. Frankly I have learned so much from anime that I never knew was possible. It has changed my view of everything. My hobbies are writing and origami.
