What do you think of anime heroes who refuse to kiss or admit they're in love?

I have been watching show like Campione! and am on vol 4 of the novels recently and to tell you the truth the hero Kusinagi Godou is starting to piss me off! Even if this guy has already kissed these gilrls over a dozen times he still treats it like they want to amputate his right arm. I mean seriously you want the world to be destroyed because you to scared to Grow up and be a man! After the first few kisses being nervous is no longer a viable excuse. Even in the U.S. Superman took waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay to long to Marry Lois Lane.

Campione! is not the only series that the male is afraid of girls that fall for him Tenchi is probably the most famous. Why can't a hero start off being afraid due to lack of experience and nervousness,then have a sudden kiss and progressively start relationships there like "Umi no Misaki". Even if its only a manga at least it moves foward and the characters gradually build up to becoming lovers.

Anyway, what I would like to ask is your thoughts on Anime and Manga Characters that take to long to move forward How quickly should they take to kiss should they get married first before sex or just have a moment of passion. Are there any anime that actually progress or do they all end with the characters still at home plate and refusing to go to first base. Should they bother with love in the hero stories if nothing comes of it or should they change it to where the hero grows up? Should they progress the love quickly and then move on to the action or progress the love throughout the story? Finally would it still be interesting if the main character surrendered to the harem?

It's to appeal to the female heart and all of us. Basically girls crave uncertainty in relationships and they crave it even more in their romantic entertainment. It...pulls on the heartstrings so to speak, or at least that's my working theory.

I have to agree with you. Even though I am not a girl I do have a soft heart. And I always want to see the characters fall in love or die in some tragic way. The uncertainty is really tense to watch and always hope that it won't last for a lot of episodes

Yeah it's why I find Korean Dramas so appealing. EVERYBODY suffers and peril is just an episode away. It's great.

Okay than let me ask this question which is more frustrating?

A: A guy (or girl) who has their own harem but runs away?

B: A guy (or girl) who doesn't realize they have their own harem?

C: A guy (or girl) is surrounded by their own harem of beauties but is indifferent? ( Lets be Friends)


D: A guy (or girl) who has their own harem and eventually has sex with all of them?

E: A guy (or girl) who has a harem and chooses only one?

F: A guy (or girl) who falls in love with one person and stays faithful


Which would you prefer?

That's just your opinion.
If someone thinks a characther is very hero-like, what they do is very inspirational and that they want to change becaus of that characther, then great for them.
Having someone to look up to isn't a bad thing, even if that someone is a fictional characther.

You guys want a REAL Hero...

<- this person representing me as the avatar stands the definition of being a Hero.

There is no greater Hero better than this guy, there is none.

I didnt mean that anime characters cant inspire. Just cuz i dont doesnt mean others cant. I know its my opinion.Also i just meant if a hero someone looks up to cant Express themselves then they arent that strong. But when i imagine a "hero" i think of like superheros.

This must be the reason I love Seinen and Josei so much. It's a lot less of all that heart tugging and dancing around. Still drama, but a different kind of drama.

But the messed up part is I l agree with you too, and love slow building romances with nonsense along the way the most. But male characters who can't admit they love the girl, despite showing in countless ways they do, do kind of annoy me after a while. I like it in shojo, but male shonen characters like that make me want to pull my hair out.

This is why romance is my favorite genre. On one hand, I want him to just admit it but on the other hand I LOVE the thrill of the chase. The uncertainty. The "what if?" factor. The "will they or won't they?" factor. To see characters in their most fragile of states is a beautiful thing to see. Its almost like a drug to watch and I'm far beyond addicted.
