15 Anime Best Friends Who Share The Same Brain Cell

List Rules

Vote up the chaotic friend groups who never fail to make you laugh.

One of the most fun things about anime is friendship - especially a friendship that creates a sort of electric field of stupidity when those friends get together. Whether they're pounding back booze like Kohei and Iori from Grand Blue or playing a series of increasingly ridiculous games like the girls from Asobi Asobase, it's just fun to see friends having fun! 

Which pair or group of buds would you most want to hang out with?

    Killua & Gon - 'Hunter x Hunter'

    In Killua and Gon's case, it's less that they're sharing one brain cell and more that they have one between the two of them, but Killua is holding onto it because Gon can only really make use of it when it comes to training his Nen.

    Despite Gon having had a relatively happy childhood and Killua having come from an abusive family of assassins, the two of them are equally dedicated to perfecting their abilities and to enjoying their adventures as Hunters. They support each other through tough times, and have a blast running around being chaotic during good times.

    Yuji & Nobara - 'Jujutsu Kaisen'

    Nobara, Yuji, and Megumi are a three-man team, but Megumi often gets stuck reprimanding the other two for not taking things seriously.

    Nobara and Yuji are easily distracted from their curse hunting work by video games, snacks, and in Nobara's case, shopping. Unless presented with something truly dangerous, they don't tend to stress about much - but they get down to business when they have to. Kind of like their lackadaisical mentor, Gojo.

    Meanwhile, poor Megumi is just embarrassed by the lot of them.

    Sasha & Connie - 'Attack on Titan'

    In a grim world where nearly everything is miserable all the time, Sasha and Connie stand out. They're silly, light-hearted people who know how to have a good time - but who also know how to be serious when they need to.

    Their similar personalities lead to a bond so tight that Connie refers to Sasha as ‘the other half of himself.’ If things had turned out differently, it's easy to imagine the two of them falling in love - or just being ridiculous BFFs forever.

    Reki & Langa - 'SK8 the Infinity'

    Reki and Langa click almost as soon as they meet. Though Langa is quiet and Reki is boisterous, they bond not long after Reki starts teaching Langa how to skateboard. At first, Langa spends most of his time falling flat on his face, but once he's able to harness his experiences with snowboarding, he levels up quickly. Reki ends up taking Langa to S, an underground skating competition. 

    From there, things start to get a lot more complicated, and several wrenches get thrown into their friendship - the biggest one being an extremely extra man dressed like a flamenco dancer. But through it all, their friendship stays intact.
