This may be one of the least talked about topics in the fandom, which is understandable, but it's one worth exploring--Even as a sub-plot device. Love stories have, by and large, been extreme secondaries to Godzilla stories. By the time we get to the Heisei and Millennium eras they're about as crucial to the movies as dial-up internet is to the Federation in Star Trek.

However, that doesn't mean there aren't characters or faces with chemistry we can't enjoy. And even then, some of these love stories really are the driving force for characters who end up saving the day (Namikawa, Ichinose). So lets take a mature moment to look over our favorite couples, why they're our favorites and what they contributed to the movies they were in.
---
For me it's no surprise. Glenn & Namikawa are absolutely my favorite screen couple in the Godzilla franchise. For a relationship that isn't thoroughly explored, the chemistry between Adams and Mizuno made up for it. They were on fire. (It probably didn't hurt that Adams was actually in love with Mizuno, either.) My favorite scene between the two is borderline iconic in my mind--I love how Namikawa tries to lure Glenn to become a citizen of Planet X, but he refuses in the most sincere and oddly sensual way. He's outraged, sure, but he clearly loves her. This is of course followed by her execution and Adams' raging anger, "YOU RATS! YOU STINKIN' RATS!" I love his delivery here.

It's Namikawa's love for Glenn that reveals the People of X's weakness, so her death wasn't in vain. The tragedy isn't played up quite like Katsura and Ichinose's relationship in Terror of MechaGodzilla (which is a close second for me as far as the love birds go), but it's effective in its pulp sci-fi style. These two win it out for me, hands down.

Oh I was going to say Glen and Namikawa, but Ichinose and Katsura are so close.

 

Eh toss up really between the two couples. Glenn an Namikawa had better chemistry, but I think I liked the story behind Ichinose and Katsura more.

What about the bromance between Glenn and Fuji? That is my favorite.

I sort of consider "bromance" to be a second entity--Akin to buddy-cops and what not. Though I agree they're a really engaging duo.

I'd have to agree with Glenn and Namikawa being my favorite onscreen couple in the series. No one really comes close to being as memorable, iconic, and overall just fantastically portrayed as those two. Honorable mentions in my book are Goro Maki and Saeko Matsumiya from Son of Godzilla, Toru and Toshie Yano from Godzilla vs. Hedorah, Gengo Kotaka and Tomoko Tomoe from Godzilla vs. Gigan, and of course Akira Ichinose and Katsura Mafune from Terror of Mechagodzilla.

You know, Glenn and Namikawa are tops no doubt. The chemistry they had together really made their romance fly through the roof. R.I.P. Nick Adams. 

Katsura and Ichinose also are tops. I mean, "Please kill me" , "No, I won't do it." how powerful is that?

I also have to give credit to Ogata and Emiko with the love triangle with the involvement of Serizawa.

But, an honorable mention would have to be, and say what you will about the film, but I also have to consider the romance in Godzilla raids again. 

Shoichi Tsukioka and Hidemi Yamaji had their romance throughout the film but, it's Koji Kobayashi and Shingo Shibeki that I felt was more dramatic considering Kobayashi loved Shibeki but really couldn't tell her. What makes it worse is that Kobayashi dies in the film. That's a sad moment, especially not getting to express your feelings towards an individual you like.
