Who are your favorite love triangles in anime?

Who are your favorite love triangles in anime?

It must not be a couple nor a harem. Triangle consists of only three persons, no more, no less.

Two boys x one girl:
Yuki + Tohru + Kyo (Fruits Basket)

One boy x two girls:
Elise + Hiroki + Kiri (Canvas 2)

Yin + Hei + Suou (Darker Than Black)

How about 3 females (yuri) or 3 males (yaoi)?




One of my favorite is Miaka, Tamahome and Hotohori from Fushigi Yuugi.



SPOILER! (highlight to read):
Of course Miaka ends up with Tamahome.

Yin + Hei + Suou
Wasn't this (at least) a 4 way with misaki, she clearly had feelings for hei/lee. Tho personally i think suou is a stretch in any case, hei wasnt even remotely interested in her romantically or sexually. Yin x Hei x Misaki is feasible, hei seemed to at least like misaki (as lee-kun anyway).

I liked the weird little love shape that was developing between Daisuke, Riku, Risa and Dark in DNAngel.

My favorites are Rumiko Takahashi's love triangles. Ataru x Shinobu x Lum(Urusei Yatsura), Godai x Kyoko x Mitaka(Maison Ikkoku), Kagome x Inuyasha x Kikyo, Ranma x Akane x Ryouga.

Although some like in Ranma can get more complex but I think I like the Ranma x Akane x Ryouga love triangle best because of the fights Ranma & P-Chan get into. Ranma x Akane x Shampoo is fun too.

The definitive sci-fi love triangle, IMO:

I agree, the SDF Macross love triangle was very powerful in the second half.

While I love Ataru getting heavy objects hurled at him or electrocuted Ranma 1/2 has multiple love triangles, my personal favorite is Akane X Ranma X Shampoo (Shampoo being the most important character in the series IMO)

I personally like the Rei/Usagi/Mamoru or Seiya/Usagi/Mamoru much more.

I like the triangles in Macross and Fushigi Yuugi a lot. Hrmm.. however other triangles I like a lot are:

Escaflowne:



Lost Universe:


I also like the ones in Utena a lot.

Surprised nobody has mentioned Evangelion yet.
