The best anime husbandos for a Valentine’s Day date

With Valentine’s Day approaching, many who are chronically single will be feeling alone. Luckily, there are many films and television shows available to watch during this tumultuous season. If you are a fan of anime, you will know of the many romantic options available to you when it comes to these swoon-worthy anime husbandos. 

Of course, no mere mortal will be able to live up to these iconic characters – however, one can dream. Lonely this upcoming Valentine’s Day? Keep these fine gentlemen in mind and join the swaths of other forever-alones wishing to find one of these fictional men in real life:

Howl Pendragon/Jenkins – Howl’s Moving Castle 

Nearly everyone has heard of Studio Ghibli films and their most well-loved pretty boy. Howl should be considered the ultimate husbando, considering he can create endless flower fields at will – what other man can claim that?

While he can be self-centered and an arrogant womanizer, his charm cannot be denied. It’s easy to love a bad boy turned good and Howl fits the description perfectly. 

Levi Ackerman – Attack on Titan 

It would be difficult to find an anime fan who had not heard of Levi Ackerman – or had an infatuation with him. As humanity’s strongest soldier and resident short legend, Levi’s badassery is irresistible. If you search his name on any fan forum, you’ll likely find a slew of posts of Attack on Titan fans singing his praises. With the show currently airing, the talk surrounding him has only picked up. 

While maybe not likely to be the best conversationalist on a Valentine’s Date, it’s impossible to deny Levi’s frosty appeal. 

Kyo Sohma – Fruits Basket 

As the cat of the zodiac, Kyo will naturally appeal to those of us who love cats. However, this is far from Kyo’s only appealing trait. While initially prickly and standoffish, he has a soft side that will make anyone melt. 

After all, who doesn’t love the chase? If you enjoy playing the long game to earn someone’s affection, Kyo is the husbando for you. 

Makoto Tachibana – Free! Iwatobi Swim Club

This choice doesn’t really need to be explained. Makoto Tachibana has all the features you could possibly want – loyal friend, amazing big brother and overall sunshine. He would be the prime candidate for a Valentine’s Date, making sure that the day was special.

If you’re alone this Valentine’s Day, don’t despair. Look to any of these anime husbandos for comfort as you treat yourself to chocolate and a (responsible) glass of wine. If anything, you’ll have the opportunity to relate to and join the leagues of us who are in exactly the same place as you are. 

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be so bad – take comfort in a fictional anime husbando and all of your worries will cease.
