I know anime that is romantic often may end with the two lovers getting/implied at being married or just end up dating or even having kids. But why can it seem so hard to say those three simple words? I know will say they that person but it's often one sided. I mean one will say they love the other. To date the only anime I've seen where both the boy and girl tell each other "aishiteru" or "I like you" are Kanon, Kanokon, and Kare Kano. What is with this. Kare Kano, Love Hina, Fruits Basket, and flipping through the final Maison Ikkoku volume are actually the only manga I've read that to date where both characters say they love each other.

What romantic anime needs more of (all or at least 2 of the following are required to fit this): 1. Childhood friends turning into something more.
2. They get married or at least is implied they might.
3. Both say suki desu or aishiteru.
4. True love kiss.


However, the only anime I have seen that fits all or half of the above list of criteria is Kanon 2006 (all 4), Kare Kano (#3-4) and Kanokon (also 3-4).

What the hell is with this?

Point is why does romantic anime often ditch the said couple from saying "I love you" to each other (Note that I said love you not like you)?

I believe by "romantic anime" You mean shounen anime. I see all that kind of crap such as love kisses, and "I love you"s in shoujo anime. If you urge to get those then watch some shoujo crap or something. Also, yes it bugs me too sometimes, but I guess shounen anime will always follow that rule: No direct romance implied until last episode, if so then make it be just an indirect implication.

If you think about it, that's the whole point of romantic anime..... You keep watching it and waiting for the main character to say those words, it would be pretty boring if they would confess on the first episode don't you think???

I didn't get the point but I think the way Hikari find it hard to say "I love you" to Kei (in Special A) is a funny love story
