Why is it that in most romance anime/manga, childhood friends always have unnoticed feeling for each other. It's in alot of anime that I've watched, and i want to know, what makes friends who've been together practically their whole lives, develop deep feelings for one another?

I know it's true, huh??? I don't really know myself, but maybe it's their ability to understand each other, you know? I mean, they've been together for a long time and they know each other in and out. It takes those abilities to create a good a stable relationship. That's what I think, I think....

It's because most anime is formulaic and unoriginal.

just the fact that they've gone through so much, they've come to appreciate each other in ways others cant even imagine. to know everything about someone, all their faults and fortunes .. but still accepting them and caring for them is, I THINK, what truly loving someone is - to love everything the person has to offer. so i don't think its too much of a surprise if deeper feelings arise from a friendship thats lasted since childhood.

plus i think it just makes for a longer story line xD lol because now they have the favor of adding flashbacks =P HHAHAAHA.

I think it's beacuse they knew each other a long time and understand each other's felling very well.

Ya...and its always sweet when the childhood friend get together. Even though they don't really admit their feeling for each other until something serious happen, you can see that whenever the female is in trouble, the guy always help her. Cause they are together for a long time, they will come to understand each other and should they seperate, they will feel something amiss><

I think it because that they are friends that the feeling between the two to them go unnoticed. They might be afraid that they might ruin their friendship if they were to ever get together. I also think it's because they feel insecure and they don't think that the other person would feel the same way that they do and vice versa. They don't want to damage the friendship that they already have. It is also a fact that in reality that there are a lot of people who feel that way about the person they care about, that's why so many people can relate to such an anime and why they keep producing anime along those lines.

I've yet to see an anime where the childhood friends don't get together...it seemed that way at first with Kimikiss Pure Rouge, but eh...she did get the childhood friend instead.
