A lot of romance anime make such a big deal about kissing, it turns out to be the central plot line. I mean c'mon it's not that big of a deal. I find the best romance anime are the ones that don't make a big deal about it (like NANA, kemonozume, and My Little Monster). It's so... uh! frustrating.

There seems to be very few romance anime that actually revolve around the relationship. Most tend to focus on getting into one.

basically it's the build up of romantic tension and it's typically the highest point in the relationship that most anime can get into without labeling it ecchi/hentai

When a typical scene has a male and female character fall flat on each other and they kiss. I hardly call it being afraid.

The Japanese really do have a thing with public shows of affection. In private is one thing, but outside the house it is considered impolite.

I saw this personal experience video via of a woman, she compared korea vs japan in relationship.

korea: loves dating outside, kissing outside, openly affectionate

japan: polar opposite hmm...

YES! Which is why I was a big fan of My Little Monster. It was so straightforward, much of like what happens in real life.
