A boy falls in love with a girl.
Unable to confess, he is gifted by a deus ex machina with the girl's phone number. Never minding the strange area code, he immediately calls her, and is overjoyed to find out that she has a crush on him as well.
But, the next day, when he recounts the previous day's confessions to the girl, she only looks at him with a perplexed expression. After some investigation, he finds out that the girl he called is not the same girl he fell in love with. In fact, she doesn't exist in this universe at all. She is the girl's alternate universe counterpart, who has fallen in love with the MC's own AU self, who too is blissfully unaware of her crush.
Hijinks ensue as the two strike up a deal to give each other their darkest, most private secrets in order to equip the other with the weapons they need to conquer the heart of their other selves. While the two chase their respective loved ones, DRAMA ensues as they begin to fall in love with each other instead and question the NATURE of LOVE.
I like it because it's not highschool bound and both of them are adults.
Bot h her original and modern designs were great, but mostly it's her eyes and subtle smugness.
It was really well executed. They nonchanatly fell for each other while they were busy doing other shit
It's not exactly star struck romance but it felt pretty real and grounded which I liked. Just two hurting people finding some comfort
So I just read last chapter and god damn am I pissed.
>Kagetora cutting her fucking hair
I dont know what to feel anymore, on one side the author at least didn't lead us on with their romance and actually concluded it in some manner but then again it doesn't really feel completely resolved.
Nah, his hand was in her hair and she guided it down to her waist.
I wonder what would axed train look like.
Greatest love story ever told
No matter what many say, this just felt... right.
This is late, but you just made my day anon. Thank you.
Agreed. It felt extremely natural, where you saw them building up over the course of the show. So when the climax came and they realized they were about to be separated forever there was no drama, there was just them admitting it and kissing. Was great.
I just finished 35 and the first movie, and watching him slowly come around to her is the greatest thing ever. I thought he was an edgy asshole at first but he quickly won me over, especially with the Dash episode.
I still feel kinda bad for Tomoyo and Mei Lin though. Still, Shaoron/Sakura is definitely OTP.
It honestly only gets better.
I honestly struggle to think of a better romance in an anime. There are couples with better chemistry, but they are usually already a couple when the series start, and never have their relationship challenged. CCS builds the entire relationship from the ground up.
>Kyoukai no Kanata
Romances where male character likes his vidya games more than women while multiple female characters compete for him
This. I don't normally like jap romances, especially ones with kids like this, but this one is great. Probably because they actually grow up and mature, having responsibility and taking care of each other, instead of being stuck as kids in school (which also applies to college romances desu).
