WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE RIVALRY IN ANIME?

There are many shows that will have a classic rivalry between two characters. To name a few top ones Sasuke and Naruto (NARUTO), Gray and Natsu (FAIRYTAIL), Goku and Vegeta (DRAGON BALL) and Ino and Sakura (NARUTO).

But everyone has one rivalry that they like the best. My favorite and ultimate rivalry between two characters are Shizuo Heiwajima and Izaya Orihara (DURARARA).

The anger they have against each other is hilarious. I love when Izaya is in the street plotting to do something evil, you hear Shizuo scream “IZAYA” and then there is a vending machine or pole being tossed at him. 😆😆😆

Their rivalry started as soon as they met each other in highschool. It escalated when Izaya framed Shizuo for a crime he committed.

Throughout the series Shizuo never trusted Izaya. Whenever anything bad is happening in Ikeburo he knows it is all related back to Izaya. Izaya can never look at Shizuo as a person he always considers him an animal. Especially due to Shizuo’s anger and physical power.

They will never become friends. They will continue to have animosity towards each other. I love this rivalry to the fullest.
