I’m still reading Katekyo Hitman Reborn (I’m up at volume 18) so maybe it’s kind of too soon to add a pair from it in my top 10, isn’t it? but I couldn’t help it with Xanxus and Squalo, their characters are very intriguing -i’m still trying to figure them out actually- and when together they are even more interesting to look at/read about. They are the boss and the second-in-command of the Varia (the assassins’ squad from the Vongola, the main mafia family from the manga) and have been knowing each other since they were teens. Their relationship is actually kind of abusive and wild -they shout insults & throw things at each other the most of the time, and there really seems to be nothing like a proper love relationship in their relationship at all… but it’s Xanxus and Squalo we’re talking about and they are not common people who act trivial and average. Honestly I am still questioning myself about the nature of Xanxus’ feelings (?) for Squalo, I can’t decide if he actually cares or not -up till now he seems he doesn’t that much. As for Squalo, I feel more safe stating that he does feel something for Xanxus (he’s so loyal to his boss that it seems unhealthy, really, and no matter how abusive Xanxus may get -he’s more abusive with Squalo than with the other Varias though: could it mean something from Xanxus part I wonder?- or how hard Squalo may shout back, the second-in-command will follow his boss to hell. Squalo respects and acknowledges Xanxus, he chose him as his one and only boss and I think this, coming from a man like Squalo, states everything). Update (22/08 2012): after reading 47 & more volumes of KHR and especially chapter 398 (♥), i can safety say that there’s something from Xanxus part too: XS is canon.
