19 Cutest Anime Hug Scenes That'll Warm You Up in One Way or Another
Most people enjoy physical contact with other people, whether it's for comfort or affection. While hugging is often used as a romantic expression, especially in anime, it can also be used to portray friendship or other deep feelings.
Anime hugs makes for good drama, but there is so much more to them. So here is a collection of 19 of the best anime hug scenes ever, be they romantic, comedic, sad, or just plain ole friendly.
1. Ao Haru Ride's touching embrace
Kou and Futaba have enough angst for a lifetime, but it makes for some perfect, tear-jerking scenes. Especially when they both stop the epic-level denial for moments like this.
2. Howl no Ugoku Shiro's companionable embrace
Howl and Sophie are beautiful together. This is one of the best anime hug scenes of all time, as it portrays both Howl finally taking a stand and Sophie discovering her own sense of self-worth, two of the deepest themes in this anime classic.
3. Naruto: Shippuuden's most dramatic hug ever
This has to be one of the most dramatic moments in anime history. Seriously, you watch over 500 episodes of ups and downs and even Minato's appearance before Naruto finally gets to meet his mother.
4. Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai! - Rikka and Yuuta Hug
Hug and swing! Rikka attack-hugs Yuuta (all her hugs are attack-hugs!), Yuuta finishes his monolog. Alright, I'm kinda feeling it now! This is a well-constructed scene.
5. Hunter X Hunter - Killua hugs Alluka
Here is my favorite brotherly hug ever. We have already seen that Killua has an intimate and understanding bond with Alluka and her other half Nanika. And he was resolved to go through a lot in order to save them both.
