hmm... number 1--- some fans get pissed off when the moe girl ends up kissing some kind of useless guy
number 2--- its kind of awkward...think Campione, light novel kiss=good, anime= weird
number 3-- Its a pain to animate


Number one... The stay away from my waifu syndrome?

Number two, what are these weird Campione kisses you mentioned?

Number three, seems like it isn't that hard...

Yeah... it does kind agitate me when the end "big moment" of a good romantic show ends up being just a kiss or even no kiss at all. I enjoy it a lot more when it's like... implied that they went even further. Like in Mirai Nikki. That was enough for me XD I guess I'm just past that whole middle school expectation.

EXCEPT for shows like Inuyasha. That shit took WAY too long

It's so annoyed to get teased all the time. I'll put this out here. I'm a guy, and i love anime with slick action and a good story. But i'm also a die hard romantic. I cried during Mirai Nikki's ending and Anohana.

I just get irritated with most romantic animes. They seem to be so immature and never get anywhere or always beat around the bush. I never finished Toradora because i was tired of waiting. I was immensely disappointed with Arakawa under the bridge because the two main characters were lovers for what, 26 episodes? and they never even kissed. The main reason i enjoyed Sword Art Online?


Here's hoping Kotoura-San goes somewhere lol. I just want a good show with romance that gets somewhere. However at the same time, insane love triangles annoy me.


You probably should not have dropped Toradora.

Toradora is still on Crunchyroll, right? Not too late to watch it! I should watch it again!

if it's an action anime, i prefer it to go a bit slow and progress as they fight evil since it's not the main plot. when i watched SAO i was like damn kirito you player though if it's a mainly romantic anime, and it goes...sooo...damn..slow i'll drop it unless it's very good. however, shugo chara isn't mainly romance but DAMN IT MOVED REALLY SLOW(between the main chara and ikuto/tadase)..but the manga was good.

Yes, if you are a member (and you are). For those who aren't, they can buy a membership, get a guest pass, or watch it on Hulu I suppose.

Someone pointed out that being a NIS title it is North America only as well. Didn't realize that.

As for the membership, it is an easy one to marathon on a guest pass. Once you get into it you will want to watch straight through until the end!

But just subscribe if you are in North America. Crunchyroll is such great value here!

With regards to AMG its taken about 22 years of the manga to give an explanation for this oddity, but there is a very good story reason why Keiichi and Belldandy are oddly not very physically intimate despite being in a long term monogamous relationship. Funny enough I don't think the OP would have a problem with the manga for this as despite the lack of aforementioned physical intimacy, the majority of the manga treats the relationship clearly as a close loving relationship and not an endless awkward pre-relationship.

Keiichi's and Belldandy's relationship is the norm in Japan lots of time spent together but not very much physical affection, unless an anime is a documentary it in no way reflects how the japanese or the person its portraying actually is, most of the time the way the females are acting are the guys fantasy same with the men from a woman's perspective when she writes it, its fantasy. If you want to watch people kissing go find yourself someone to kiss and watch yourself in a mirror?

I have to agree, the OP hasn't watched enough anime apparently because there is a lot of anime shows that have such in them. Be they romantic or otherwise.

From what I understand, in Japan there is quite a bit of timidity. In fact I think in a lot of Asian nations it's seen that way. I think it's something they view as best left for private time or the bedroom. When I first started watching K Drama, I noticed that they rarely ever kissed and when they did, it was so awful it wasn't even worth the wait. It's most likely a cultural thing. In Europe and America, public displays of affection are considered the norm, whereas places in Asia and the middle east see it differently.

I forget which KDrama it was, but one of the maybe 3 kisses in the entire series was an open mouth kiss and the stars caught a lot of flack for it because it was deemed obscene. They defended the kiss, but just the reaction from the public says it all.
