Most awkward romances

Most awkward romances are Hibiki x Fuko (I My Me Strawberry Eggs), Kaoru Hanabishi x Tina Foster (Ai Yori Aoshi), Hiroyasu Ueda x Yumi Oumura (Chobits) and Keitaro Urashima x Shinobu Maehara (Love Hina).

Hibiki x Fuuko: Both of them were equally confused about their own feelings to each other. Fuuko felt attracted to the female Hibiki but did not understand her feelings, let alone know who the real Hibiki was. She even thought herself to be weird. Hibiki must be surely troubled by thoughts regarding Fuuko daily. Those thoughts are more than platonic. What a strange couple that a pubescent girl and a feminine adult guy cross-dressing as a woman are. That is such an awkward romance.

Kaoru x Tina: Tina had been denying her own feelings for Kaoru in both the anime and manga. She wanted to be his girlfriend but did not have the guts, therefore she kept her feelings to herself, which led to awkward moments between them especially in the love Hotel.

Hiroyasu Ueda x Yumi Oumura: Yumi severed all ties with Ueda because she totally misunderstood Ueda's heart since she found that Ueda is married to a persocom who shared her given name. She had an inferiority complex ever since then. Ueda also misunderstood Yumi's feelings, not fully realizing why she broke up with him, but he respected Yumi's request. Unfortunately, that has but served only to hurt both Ueda and Yumi. The awkward and mutual misunderstanding would never have been solved, had it not been for Hideki and Chii.

Keitaro x Shinobu: Shinobu was attracted to Keitaro but she was young, vulnerable and shy girl whose heart is verily confused. She wants to be his girlfriend but was very timid and hesitant to reach her goal repeatedly.

My vote goes to Kazuto and Valkyrie from UFO Princess. That's just a really messed up relationship.

Tatsumi and Ureshiko from Okusama wa Mahou Shoujo. A young man moves to a new town, gets a job at a publishing company, and falls in love with his landlady. Pretty standard so far right?
Spoiler for just in case:

Yamato Akizuki and Suzuka Asahina in Suzuka. Hands down.

Someone should kill them both and put them out of their misery.

Try this one here.

Japanese anime stories alway have a limit when they are talking about 'love' relationship between brother and sister- that is, they are never blood-related.

Not this one though.

Some goes up for Koi Kaze. The brother/sister bit made it so uncomfortable to watch (yet to enjoyable to watch), not to mention the fact that he was nearly twice her age I think.

Don't forget his penchant for panty sniffing. And the fact that he was an idiot ranking up there with the guys from KgNE and Suzuka.

Hmm, I'm not sure what connotation of "awkward" is being used, whether it's "uneasy/nervous" or "unexpected/strange"...(or both!)

But for awkward ("unexpected") romance, mine goes to....

Satsuki and 'The Beast' - "X" - I mean seriously. Love with an android? Okay, easy enough. Love with AI program who looks and acts very human (AI Love You)? Okay, sounds good. Love with a big metal thing the size of a small car shaped kind of like a giant kidney bean? ALERT, ALERT. But, that's part of what made it unique I guess.

For awkward as in "uneasy"...I'm with stelok about Hibiki and Fuuko from IMMSE. That was just...I dunno. Even I was feeling weird imagining that one, but it was there, and at the end I was actually pretty PO'd. Well, extremely PO'd. After all that, I was about to yell at the tv screen I was so mad.

Incest-specific animes aside... I'd say:

Macross - Minmay and Linn Kaifun.

Linn IS HER COUSIN FOR GOD'S SAKE. WHY WHY WHY does no one ever comment on this to Hikaru and why doesn't he realize this? I mean Macross wasn't an incest anime, so why does it make sense that Minmay and Linn would be having any sort of relationship that Hikaru would be jealous of at all?!

The ban on intercousin relationships isn't that widespread. (Does it exist anywhere outside the North America?)

The most annoying ones are the brother-sister relationships (ie. Canvas 2, Da Capo, Shuffle) , enough to have my eyes bleeds and really explains the Japanese Otakus mentallity. Just look at Shakugan no Shana on how the Blond Twins did their stuff, just plain disgusting and stupid beyond imagination.

FTR, I think most of Europe doesn't go there...

Hn, you already got Yumi and Manger Ueda, so I guess mine would have to be... Sagara Souske and Kaname Chidori from FMP, and Mazaki Anzu and Yami no Yuugi from Yu-Gi-Oh!.

Souske grew up on the battlefield, but he's shy and reserved, wheras Kaname is a pretty much ordinary civilian... who is about a hundred times as violent as poor Souske! Every time the military otaku gets it wrong she'll be standing behind him waiting to hit him with her fan or just punch him. Plus she doesn't want to fall in love with him.

Anzu is definitely attracted to the Yami no Yuugi. But he's been dead 3000 years and inhabits the body of her childhood friend. And he isn't interested in romaincin'. I think Anzu's problems pretty much beat all. :P

Eureka 7 has some pretty messed up and awkward relationships - Renton & Eureka (genuinely awkward but cute), Holland & Tahlo (mutually bitter), Anemone & Dominic (wierd), Anemone & Dewey (wierdx3), Ray & Charles Beams (bonkers).

It's the standard anime rule of "Even the greatest anime warrior cannot block an attack from an angry schoolgirl."

Another pretty messed up relationship I should note is Nyu/Lucy and wanta from Elfen Leid. I mean, split personalities asside that's one hell of a messed up situation.

In that case they should have changed it at least for the Robotech dub... that aired in North America and a 3-year old me saw it on TV for goodness sake

There are no brother/sister relationships in SHUFFLE! or Canvas 2.
Hiroki and Elis are not siblings despite her calling him "oniichan." They are cousins though.

And SHUFFLE!, I don't know where you got a brother/sister relationship in there. And of course in Da Capo, one is adopted.
