When it comes to friendship and Nakama power, anime gave us a valuable lesson. Friends mean everything and friendship goals are something you would never break off. True friendship makes you sacrifice, protect each other, and even fight the entire world to side with your friend. Some animes have taught us friendship goals and what it means to protect your friends. Which anime characters have taught you friendship goals?
9. Handa & Takao (Barakamon)
Handa Seishuu and Takao Kawafuji have known each other since middle school. Although Takao wanted to ease the misunderstanding that Handa has acquired in school, he deliberately enjoys his company and wants to remain his friend. He later resolved the misunderstanding and later became his professional partner. Takao works as an art dealer and takes care of calligraphy needs of Handa.
Their friendship is precious in Barakamon. Takao genuinely cares about Handa even though on occasion he says he treats him like a money source, which is far from the truth. Handa, on the other hand, treats Takao as his closest friend with whom he shares all his feelings and vents his frustration. We all wish we had a friend like Takao.
8. Mitsuki & Boruto (Boruto)
Boruto and Mitsuki are both members of Team 7. Their friendship is beautiful and precious. Mitsuki is a synthetic human, but Boruto had never treated him badly. Mitsuki may appear indifferent, but is always attentive and helps Boruto whenever in need. He speaks his mind and advises Boruto on several occasions.
When Mitsuki defected Konoha without explaining, it was Boruto who believed in Mitsuki and went to rescue him. Mitsuki never doubted once and had faith in Boruto that he would arrive when he sees the clue he left behind. Boruto went against everyone, even the Hokage to rescue Mitsuki.
7. Langa & Reiki (Sk8:The Infinity)
The friendship between Langa Hasegawa and Reiki Kyan is precious. The duo from Sk8: The Infinity are best friends who always encourage each other. They compete, fight, get angry and then resolve their conflicts to develop their relationship. They are important to each other and when no one believes them, they have faith in each other.
It was Reiki who introduced Langa to skating, and together they enjoy the one common thing they love. Langa was dejected when Reiki broke contact and stopped skating. The scenario completely reversed when Reiki cheered up Langa who ended up winning!
6. Hayato & Ryuichi (Gakuen Babysitters)
The list will be incomplete without the mention of Hayato Kamitani and Ryuichi Kashima from Gakuen Babysitters. The duo study in the same school and work in the babysitters club.
Even their little brothers Kotaro and Taka are friends. What makes the friendship between Hayato and Ryuichi so precious because both of them support and understand each other.
Hayato may appear like a cold-hearted person but he cares about his friend and his little bro, who often ends up throwing a tantrum.
Ryuichi, on the other hand, is a caring and responsible person who often advises Hayato regarding his little brother, who can be a headache and hard to deal with. However, Taka can be mischievous but isn’t evil. We loved the genuine friendship between the due and their little brothers.
5. Touya & Yukito (Cardcaptors Sakura)
When it comes to friendship goals, the first duo who probably taught us what it means to literally sacrifice and take care of each other is none other than Touya and Yukito from Cardcaptors Sakura.
Toya and Yukito have been friends for a long time in high school, and now are studying in college together.
They both care about Sakura that’s for sure. When Yukito was about to die and disappear, Touya gave his powers so that Yukito can remain alive and preserve Yue. When Yukito is dejected, Touya assures him that he’s not fake and every memory of them is real and precious.
4. Nanase & Tachibana (Free)
Makoto Tachibana and Nanase Haruka have known each other since they were kids. They were in the same swimming club, same high school, and later work towards their dream in different universities. In most parts of Free, it’s evident that Haruka Nanase is dependent on Tachibana Makoto.
When Haruka quit swimming for a brief period, even Makoto quit. When Haruka started swimming again, Makoto did as well. They are completely devoted to each other and never shy away to knock some sense when either of them is not doing okay.
3. Natsu & Happy (Fairy Tail)
Happy is extremely loyal to Natsu and they often go on missions together. Natsu Dragneel took care of Happy ever since he was an egg. Happy always reciprocates to Natsu and they both often drop by Lucy’s house. The classic “Aye, sir” when Happy responds to Natsu is cute and admirable. Both Natsu and Happy care about each other.
2. Naruto & Sasuke (Naruto)
In case you haven’t watched Naruto or Naruto Shippuden, let’s recap by starting, the entire series is 80% about Naruto trying to bring back Sasuke, his BFF back to Konoha. Their friendship goals are truly amazing. Even in the Bortuo series, now that Naruto is the Hokage, Sasuke reports to him and tries his best to protect the village. Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha’s friendship will make you wish you had such caring friends, good if you have!
1. Yorozuya (Gintama)
The Yorozuya trio Gintoki, Kagura and Shinpachi are true friendship goals from Gintama. Equally idiotic and hilarious, the trio will do anything to protect each other. Their level of friendship will melt your heart and make you cry. They might be gluttony when it comes to food, but when it comes to friendship, there’s no hesitation to make sacrifices.
