Japanese culture has become quite popular amongst the fans who either watch anime or read manga. Little by little, even a non-Japanese person can grasp some words if is exposed to the culture daily. Likewise, many may be aware of what does ‘Senpai’ and ‘Kouhai’ mean, which is basically is Senior and Junior when translated. There are many anime series where a senior either takes care of their junior or vice-versa. There are also juniors who like to tease their senpai to the point that they may even corner their senpai. Regardless, these Senpai-Kouhai duos are fun to watch.

Couple or not, we just love to ship some, and while we are at it, we tag them as the best duo. Despite shipping and not, despite the fact that they are just ‘Senpai and Kouhai’ and nothing else, we love to see some duo acts. Here are some of the most famous, or say, a list of best senpai and kouhai duos in anime.

10 Best Senpai Kouhai Duos in Anime:

10. Tetsuhiro Morinaga – Souichi Tatsumi

If you are a fujoshi or a fudanshi, you might be aware of the Koisuru Boukun series, no? The way Morinaga never leaves his Senpai drives him nuts. Souichi senpai may push Morinaga away, but he never hates the fact that he is wanted. Leaving the fact that Morinaga actually forces himself on Souichi, their duo is overall sweet.

Usa is a year younger than Ritsu Kawai, yet he likes her. Leaving the liking part, their duo is pretty favorable by many. Saving him from constant sarcasm, Kawai finally takes a step towards Usa. Her cool demeanor has let fans worship their duo.

7. Hinata Shōyo – Kōtarō Bokuto

Would you like to have an airheaded person as your senpai? Can you trust ‘that’ senpai? Well, Hinata Shōyo can. An airhead kouhai learning and unlearning tricks from his airheaded senpai. What a duo! But Bokuto is actually great. After all, Hinata’s first feint was actually taught by Bokuto.

6. Aoi Todo – Itadori Yuji

“Brother” and “My Besto Friendo” by Todo have made fans, in fact, ship this duo. Todo’s first impression of Itadori wasn’t satisfactory. However, after Itadori answered the question, “What kind of woman is your type?” Todo has never left Itadori’s side since then. A duo with a similar woman type!

5. Takigawa Chris – Sawamura Eijun

When Chris senpai trained and shaped Sawamura, we actually hoped that their duo would last forever. Their duo is sure one of the best, and also the fact that Sawamura is able to experience new things, all thanks to Chris senpai, is just exciting in itself.

4. Hana Uzaki – Shinichi Sakurai

Is a kouhai becoming more active than a senpai? Hana Uzaki and Shinichi Sakurai are kouhai and senpai, respectively, who once knew each other. Knowing how her senpai has now become an aloof student, who enjoys peace and prefers to be left alone, Hana tries to take him to places. The duo is quite unique.

3. Sasaki Shuumei – Miyano Yoshikazu

Sasaki and Miyano are quite trendy now. Not mostly because of their love affairs, but also because their senpai-kouhai relationship is full of excitement. Sasaki is always on call for Miyano. Even if he has to take punches, Sasaki comes running when Miyano calls him. Feels nice to have such a caring senpai, no?

2. Futaba Igarashi – Harumi Takeda

A duo like them is hard to find. The way Takeda senpai treats Futaba is just as adorable as their height difference. Their duo is one of the best and most favored by fans. A refreshing series as this, My Senpai Is Annoying, is worth your watch. Also, does Futaba have a secret crush? There is a possibility that even Takeda likes Futaba. Isn’t the series interesting?

1. Naoto – Nagatora

The relationship between these two is on another level. Their duo seems to fit in so well. A senpai who is afraid of his kouhai and could barely speak up.

Senpai himself says he is a mole hidden under the ground and pop-ups to see a group of jaguars, Nagatora and her group that is. The scene will make you want to ship them so badly, but them remaining as they are right now is satisfying in itself.
