Just finished watching this. It was good, but goddamn. It was as romantically blue-balling as chuuni. They're adults, right? I mean, the demon king is. The hero is like, what, 16 at the beginning. The fuck /a/? Years pass and nothing happens? Why does Japan have to be so shitty at romance? I'm not saying they have to fuck or anything. They could keep it sweet and innocent. There really isn't much inbetween is there? It's either straight up porn or a beta faggot. Why Japan?

Because Japan doesn't like romancing things.
That's a cold reality they don't want to face, it's either porn or beta.
Real romance is scary to them and they don't want to experience that or care about that.

My favorite part was when they had to be separated for a long time because Hero had to go to the demon world, creating lots of tension and romantic longing.

And then Hero casually mentions that he could have teleported to see her at any time.
>>
>>135970713

Why didn't he go for both the demon king and knight? They both lusted for his cock, even shared a bed between them and yet no threesome route.

It's mostly politics in a fantasy world with very little romance, but I like it that way since the romance doesn't distract me from my waifu economics.

Was it? I don't know. I thought it was fun at least, but maybe I was being to forgiving. I'm just one of those fags that really want another season of spice and wolf and this just sort of filled the void.

>>135976947
Almost the entirety of the shoujo and josei genre, to begin with.

Off the top of my head I can name:
Spice and Wolf (you even mentioned it)
Steins;Gate
The Monogatari series
Toradora
Oreimo
Evangelion (fucked up, granted, but still)
Aku no Hana
Koe no Katachi
Chuunibyou
Maison Ikkoku
Bakuman (though the romance is crap in this one)
Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry
Welcome to the NHK

Of course romance is not the primary focuse of all of these.
It doesn't matter whether they make up 1% or 0,1% percent, some of them are rather famous and there is definetely an audience for them, so an assertion like:

>Because Japan doesn't like romancing things.
That's a cold reality they don't want to face, it's either porn or beta.
Real romance is scary to them and they don't want to experience that or care about that.

Nah, I wasn't asking. Anyone dumb enough to fall for that wouldn't be able to really recommend anything of any real quality.

They're saying that they don't fit the requirements because they don't fit the requirements. Evengelion a romance? What the fuck is wrong with you?

Fuck, I even called out chuuni in the OP for being as shitty as maoyuu was with romance. Your list was shit and out of the ones on your list, very few of them don't suffer from the problem I was talking about.

That's objectively wrong, and those examples, no matter how shit you may say they are, prove it.

Honestly this sounds like bait, but I'm bored.

Your examples don't "prove" anything. They were bad examples. You yourself even said that romance wasn't the primary focus for some of them. They weren't the primary focus because Japan, in general, doesn't like romancing things. Sure there's a series here or there that do it all right, but generally Japan itself stays away from romance.

Tell me, romance series can you name where the main characters act like adults?

Monogatari isn't a romance series.
Evangelion has so little romance in it, that I don't even know why you brought it up.
Oreimo the love interest is his sister and the whole series revolves around that instead of anything normal.
Welcome to the NHK wasn't romance. It was depressing. It was about how shitty of a person you are.
Chuuni and S&W have two people who like each other and do nothing about it.

It just goes on and on. The only show I can think of off the top of my head is Golden Time, but that was a long time ago and there was so much drama going on that romance almost took a back seat.

Quoted off of wikipedia

The romance novel or romantic novel discussed in this article is the mass-market literary genre. Novels of this type of genre fiction place their primary focus on the relationship and romantic love between two people, and must have an "emotionally satisfying and optimistic ending."

Ask yourself. What show have you seen that REALLY FIT THAT.

Read the LN
Also, you're right when you say that chuuni is blue-balling, but at least they end up together, it's not ture they "do nothing about it"
But aside from that:
>Japan, in general, doesn't like romancing things
this sounds like a blanket statements that, at least to me, reads as
>there is no or little romance in japanese media
Discounting all the shoujo/josei works where romance is the main theme, I posted some examples where there actually is some, not necessarily belonging to the romance genre.
So I guess it was a misunderstanding

On a side note:
>must have an "emotionally satisfying and optimistic ending."
Though strictly speaking they probably wouldn't be labelled as romance, going by that definition love tragedies are a thing, too.

I messed up, what I meant is:

>hurr durr can't confess cause that's to embarrassing, but we both know that we like each other.
>doesn't matter though shit goes nowhere
>economic story conflict happens and is resolved
>time skip now we have a child
To me, acting like a faggot and trying to figure out if someone likes me for 99% percent of the series isn't romance.

But maybe you're right. Maybe I'm looking at this from a culturally naive standpoint. Maybe acting like autistic children IS romance in Japan.

And I know this is bordering on normalfaggotry, but have you ever been in a real romantic relationship. I know, I know, 3DPD and all, but if you ever stoop that low out of sheer loneliness, you're going to find that romance is entirely different than how it's portrayed in anime.
