Studio Ghibli is well-famous for its fantasy and adventure films that capture the hearts of many anime fans from different generations. They had delivered memorable and epic anime films with great calibers to the world. Every time I asked people about the best anime films, they’re always a Studio Ghibli masterpiece in their list.
Among the top caliber anime films from them are the critically acclaimed Spirited Away and the epic Princess Mononoke. Their films are considered by many anime fans to be legendary and always on top among other animated movies. Actually, among my personal favorites from them are Whisper of the Heart and Howl’s Moving Castle.
Anime Couples from Studio Ghibli
1. Shizuku and Seiji (Whisper of the Hearts)
The Whisper of the Heart is a funny and romantic coming of age anime film that revolved around two young individuals, Shizuku and Seiji. They’re quite the typical girl and boy that you can found in high school nowadays, I think the only difference is that these two are such bookworms.
These two were definitely romantic especially when they teased each other, much to the dismay of Shizuku where she always ends up pissed off. But in the end, she fell for Seiji’s charismatic aura and definitely to the boy’s tsundere nature. Seiji eventually reciprocates Shizuku’s feeling and at the end of the film, he even asked her for marriage after they both finish their studies.
2. Sophie and Howl (Howl’s Moving Castle)
Now, this is a romantic and magical love team with a young lady cursed and turned into an old hag and a young handsome wizard who had an ugly little secret. There’s no doubt that Sophie fell for Howl the very first time they’d met though she didn’t know it was Howl. The fact that Howl can see Sophie’s real appearance even she’s under the spell is quite interesting too.
I think the most romantic part there is that when Sophie breaks her way in, into Howl’s heart and letting him know that there’s someone who will love him regardless of what type of monster he becomes. Sophie and Howl story is simply magical in any sense it defies everything that hinders their way.
3. Taeko and Toshio (Only Yesterday)
This is a rather different story where the girl is actually older than the guy but they are bound with their loves for the countryside and the country life. The chemistry between Taeko and Toshio ever since the first time they had met in the train station can’t be denied, they’re perfectly suits for each other.
Taeko’s struggle whether she actually fell for Toshio and her claim of love for the country life is the big challenge on her part. Later on, she finally comes to her senses and realized that her love for the countryside and her feelings for Toshio are real.
