I don't anymore since I got an anime girlfriend. We have been together for 8 years and I feel if I watched pure romance animes not romcoms it would be akin to infidelity towards her if I became to engaged into the female characters plight.
Yes, but sometimes it hits me too hard because it reminds me i have no GF. Things like Lovely Complex make me happy but then i feel sad, because i wish i had a beautiful relationship and just fall in love witj a cute women.
I like you.
Also yes I watch romance animu when its entertaining. Even shoujo. Romcom like toradora are much better though. Been watching too much harem recently...need to find another good romcom
Honestly, I tend to prefer shoujo just because it has more variety in girls. Shoujo often has the genki or nice girl win. While male focused romance almost always has the Tsun or popular girl get with the guy. And it becomes way too formulaic. Toradora being an exception of course since it was a parody of the Tsun formula.
And then you got shows like this that can be anything.
same, i blindly started it because i like the guy on the cover
Only if it has the purest form of love in it
Shoujo is my favorite demographic, despite being a hot blooded male. Or maybe because I'm a hot blooded male.
Thankfully not all guys share your opinion. I started watching shoujo for the cute girls. Ended up watching a lot more because the character development was better than most shounen.
And the reaction shots.
I only watch romance anime, which is a shame because I am really struggling to find any more good ones. Just watched Midori Days which was alright and that awful series where the kid inherits 500 maids.
I legitimately believe that show would've worked much better if Takeo was Black.
Generic shitty romance shoujo is worse than generic shitty shounen though.
>shy beta MC
>has many/a handsome Gary Stu prince fall in love with her
>but I don't know if I love him/them
>also the MC gets put into rapey situations where the sexual harassment part is usually ignored
Also sometimes the MC is "tough" and "independent" except for when they aren't and need to be saved.
No, they kept pounding home his ugliness and gorilla like looks in this show. Also people were afraid of and avoided him just for existing until they became aware of his gentle giant behavior.
I feel the contrast between outward appearance/first impressions and his actual personality would've been much more striking if they made him Black.
Probably the only character from any series where I actually think "this would work better if (x) was Black."
Well he definitely has the face for passable blackwash and even his mom rocks a fro.
Maybe the creator was meeting you halfway here, realizing there was no way the comic could sell if he was black and the main fanbase would only feel cucked reading it.
>he didn't bang his fuccboi friend
what a fag
I want to watch more, but there's not much good out there. Either it doesn't happen til the end or at all thanks to misunderstandings, or the characters themselves aren't great. Male leads are especially guilty of this since the trend of making them pretty boys who turn down all the girls while being perfect Gary Stu's continues.
Why can't there be just cute couples doing cute couples things?
