So we all have that favorite couples in each anime that we’ve watched, or even on manga that we’ve read. But not all these couples have a happy ending. They may not be the main characters but I am sure that they have touched our hearts and saddened us for the outcome of their love stories.
Sometimes, I’ll cry out of the blue while remembering them especially when I’m listening to their theme songs. Maybe I’m just soft. Well, lets start…
Komugi and Meruem (Hunter X Hunter)
Meruem is the most powerful son of the Chimera Ant Queen and became the King of Chimera Ants after he was born. And since Mereum seems to be a cruel King, he never cared that his mother was dying after giving birth to him.
On the other hand, Komugi is the World Gungi Champion. She looks pretty messed up for an anime girl but she has a very good heart. When she plays Gungi, she opens her eyes and concentrates on the game until it ends.
After Meruem fought Netero (chairman of the Hunters Association) and have been poisoned by the Miniature Rose, he returned to the palace of East Gorteau where Komugi was being healed. When he returned, Komugi was already in Palm’s care. He knew that he is dying and asked Palm to let him see Komugi for the last time. Palm agreed but with one condition, to let her see what will happen to both of them.
Meruem told Komugi the truth about himself and that he is also dying. Also, he warned Komugi that the poison is contagious and that if she’ll stay longer, she’ll die. Still, he asked Komugi to spend his last moment with her playing Gungi.
