Jujutsu Kaisen’s shonen lead is the cheerful but tough Yuji Itadori, and he has an entire squad of friends to help him save the day. His two teammates are a bit moody and grouchy, but deep down, they are good people, and they greatly value their friends. Just what kind of person is Megumi Fushiguro, and what does he look for in a partner?

Megumi is stern and a bit aloof, but he is no cynic. He strongly believes in justice for the innocent and will fight hard to bring peace and happiness to the people while showing no mercy to criminals and outlaws. His ideal girlfriend would feel the same way, and the world of anime has more than a few candidates to could win Megumi’s heart.
10 Arisa Uotani Is Tohru Honda’s Fierce Guardian (Fruits Basket)
Tohru Honda wouldn’t harm a fly, but if Tohru was in danger, Arisa Uotani will go all out. She used to be a hardened delinquent until Tohru turned her life around. Now, Arisa has found true happiness and balance in her life, since she can look after herself but has learned to see the beautiful things in life at the same time.
Arisa is intrigued by boys such as the hotheaded Kyo Sohma, and if she got a chance to know Megumi better, they might hit it off, especially if they get in a fight together against some nasty curses. Megumi wouldn’t fail to see the heart of gold under Arisa’s tough exterior.
9 Misaki Ayuzawa Is Tough But Fair (Maid-Sama!)
Misaki Ayuzawa is the student president of Seika High and secretly works as a waitress at a maid cafe to support her impoverished family. Like Arisa Uotani, Misaki is a practical, no-nonsense young woman who is kind to her friends and fierce to her rivals and enemies. No one gets the best of her for long.
Megumi would be greatly impressed if he met Misaki, and Misaki would recognize Megumi as a selfless guardian of the weak and innocent, something she can appreciate. Megumi would feel the same way about Misaki, and they’d hit it off before long.
8 Maki Oze Is A Fire Soldier With A Sentimental Streak (Fire Force)
As a whole, Megumi’s ideal girlfriend is someone with strong convictions about her duty and justice, to mirror Megumi’s own resolve to protect the innocent from harm and create a more just world, free of the horror of curses. Maki Oze, a well-trained Fire Soldier, fits the bill.

Maki was trained as a member of the Empire’s military, then became a Fire Soldier in company 8. She is a tough and reliable fighter who burns to bring all white-clad cultists to justice, and she also has a soft side that loves to daydream about her own happily-ever-after. Megumi would definitely want to get to know her better.
7 Rukia Kuchiki Is An Empathetic & Kind Soul Reaper (Bleach)
Rukia Kuchiki may not be the strongest Soul Reaper, but she can look after herself, and she intimately knows what it’s like to suffer and have nothing. She grew up as an impoverished orphan and was forced to kill her good friend Kaien Shiba when the latter got possess by a Hollow.
All this made Rukia tough but compassionate, and she will risk it all to defend the innocent and make sure no one else has to suffer like she did. Megumi would love that, and he’d like Rukia’s personality, too. He’d see a bit of himself in her, and Rukia would be flattered.
6 Kyoko Hori Is Humble & Responsible (Horimiya)
There is more to Kyoko Hori than meets the eye. At school, she is quite popular and cheerful, and it seems she wants to be friends with everyone (and vice versa). Deep down, though, she is humble, selfless, and only wants to look after her family. Hard work and responsibility are the cornerstones of her home life.

All that makes Kyoko Hori a well-balanced person, and Megumi would appreciate how hard Kyoko works for her little brother and even her mother. She is the very model of the innocent, noble person Megumi wishes to defend, and he’d find himself drawn to her before long.
5 Kyoka Jiro Is A Punk Hero With A Burning Passion (My Hero Academia)
Kyoka Jiro used to have some self-esteem issues, mostly regarding her appearance and her musical talents, but she got over that with the support of her friends and classmates. Now, Kyoka Jiro has blossomed into a confident and cool hero named Earphone Jack, and she is 100% committed to destroying evil for good.
Megumi Fushiguro fancies himself a hero as well, and he’d certainly take a liking to Kyoka’s tough but fair attitude and her musical talents, not to mention her dark, punkish vibe. In another life, she could have been a sorcerer herself, and Megumi would love to have her on his team.
4 Kohaku Will Bravely Face Any Foe To Protect The Innocent (Dr. Stone)
Kohaku, a resident of Ishigami village, would appeal to any anime hero who wants a fierce but loyal friend or lover who’s not afraid to get in people’s faces. Kohaku is a warrior, ready to defend her village from threats such as Tsukasa’s Empire of Might and other foes. She’s a real go-getter.

Kohaku is highly protective of her sickly big sister Ruri, and she’ll risk her very life to protect her from much larger and scarier enemies. Megumi would be greatly impressed by Kohaku’s heroic ways, and he would soon learn that Kohaku has her sweet side, too. What’s not to like?
3 Asami Sato Fights For What’s Right, No Matter What (Avatar: The Legend Of Korra)
Asami Sato is a business leader and a hero, and she has risked her life many times to hold justice despite not being a bender. She is kind and compassionate but also willing to bring down the hammer on wrongdoers, even her own father, Hiroshi Sato. That’s the kind of justice Megumi is looking for.
Asami’s beauty, intelligence, sophistication, and courage would simply dazzle Megumi, and he would be eager to get to know her better. He wouldn’t mind touring Republic City’s streets with a lady friend like Asami Sato.
2 Lucy Heartfilia Has A Kind & Forgiving Heart (Fairy Tail)
Lucy Heartfilia is a Celestial wizard, and she also has a serious thirst for adventure across the idyllic landscape of Fiore. She grew up in a wealthy household, but that was stifling to her. How can Lucy make friends and protect the innocent like that? She must go out there and make something of herself.
And she did. Lucy is a brave and loyal friend, and she has a heart of gold that will accept anyone as a friend if they return the favor. Lucy sees the best in others and will fight hard to protect them, making her just the kind of person Megumi wants to protect with his curses. She’s also easy to like, even if she’s a bit vain at times.
1 Princess Elizabeth Liones Will Risk Her Life For Justice (The Seven Deadly Sins)
In many ways, Princess Elizabeth Liones is just like Lucy Heartfilia, from her sweet and compassionate personality to her desire to go out there and save people. She isn’t the type to just live it up in the castle; what kind of princess would she be if she simply abandons her loyal subjects?
Elizabeth toured the entire Liones kingdom to recruit the innocent Seven Deadly Sins to face the demons, and her heroic resolve, combined with her lovely personality, would make her a winner in Megumi’s eyes. He’d see her as an angel, and then he’d be proven literally correct later on.
