Today is a winding road that's taking me to places that I didn't want to go
Whoa (whoa, whoa, whoa)
Today in the blink of an eye I'm holding on to something and I do not know why
I tried

I tried to read between the lines
I tried to look in your eyes
I want a simple explanation
For what I'm feeling inside
I gotta find a way out
Maybe there's a way out

Your voice was the soundtrack of my summer
Do you know you're unlike any other?
You'll always be my thunder, and I said
Your eyes are the brightest of all the colors
I don't wanna ever love another
You'll always be my thunder
So bring on the rain
And bring on the thunder

>The plots of the best anime series all start with "A boy falls in love with a girl".
Unable to confess, he is gifted with 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.

>>141222342

Boys likes girl if the author is male

The other way around only if the author is female
>>
>>141222839
To be honest, I've never thought about it. Probably because the end results is the thing that matters, which requires willpower and not just feelings. It is often hard to tell when admiration or respect turns to like which then turns to love. Out of the shows that I've watched, the most common route is that a mc likes a girl/boy whom he builds/already has established a relationship with that developes into love. It's most common that male mcs show interest first, so I guess I'd prefer boys liking girls first.
>>

>They spends forvever being scared to confess

Is this any better than male MCs that wait for the girl to confess like fucking dickless betas?

>Have to see them cry like bitches constantly

>9/10 they are afraid of sex even though people their age fuck like rabbits

Is this bait? A lot of romances where the MC is female usually ends with them fucking at some point. Sometimes not even just once

I like whichever is done right. No preference one way or another.

What a silly question.

Girl likes boy.

In real life girls are incapable of truly loving someone, so I find it really amusing when 2D shows girls truly loving someone. It reasures my faith in 2D.

It means that the average Japanese reader can't self-insert as someone who just walks up to a girl and hooks up. Romance has to happen via a fantasy scenario where a girl falls from the sky or they get forced to live in the same house.
>>
>>141226209
These are both good. Although I usually like the boy a little older like middle school.

After watching many romance animes, I've come to the conclusion that the best romance isn't to be found in romance animes but instead series where the romance is a side plot that builds up over the course of the adventure.

Case in point is a good one. Also Tristeping/Eva from Wakfu. Rock/Revy from Black Lagoon is amazing as well though it remains to be seen where that goes.

The west doesn't really do romance as a main plot in cartoons and Japan is pretty fucking retarded when they do, so romance anime are often just a buttfuck mess of misunderstandings and drama for no reason.

Boy likes girl because It makes more sense to me, especially considering how anime MCs generally are.

Also, I prefer the idea of a man making efforts to get the girl he loves than she simply falling in love with him without any good reason behind it.

This. Romance might be an important plot, but it has to still be a side plot. For example, Spice and Wolf wouldn't be so good without the economics. One of the reasons for this is that you don't need to come up with pointless sexual tension and misunderstandings to keep the series going, you can even keep going after the couple got together.
>>
>>141226892
Holy shit guy you responded to and how could I forget Spice and Wolf. Fun In Economics with a romance plot that builds up over the course of the show and it's damn good. Just another example to back up the claim.

Yet somehow girls can expect that to always happen by default and have literally the entire relationship handed to them on a silver platter and that's perfectly fine.

Given Romance Choices: None, Loli, Shota, Hetro

THEN

IF
Fantasy/Jokey/"Loose" Setting: Loli>Hetro>Shota>None

IF
"Serious" Setting: Hetro>None>Loli>Shota

YMMV, but that's where I stand - most loli/shota characters essentially act like cute versions of miniature adults in the series they're in - intelligence wise. When they're actually portrayed as children psychologically (See Yotsuba, Pre-Timeskip Usagi Drop ect ect) it kills any chance of a boner for me
