Day 7 -- Favorite Anime Couple -- Taeko & Toshio

"Only Yesterday"

Okay, this is sort of a cheat. It's a full length Ghibli Movie, and probably my favorite one. Taeko and Toshio aren't really a couple until the end, and the movie is more about Taeko, a single office worker in her late twenties who is being followed around by her ten year old self. She goes on vacation to pick safflower in the country side and falls in love unexpectedly with Toshio, an organic farmer.

I like this couple because I'm a fan of last minute saves, and if you watch the movie, you'll find it contains a lovely last minute save. I like this movie because I am a single office worker who one day dreams of marrying an organic farmer of my own.
