I don't like forced romance, but if the genre is strictly more on the romance side, it's ok. But anime that's supposed to be action/fantasy/comedy (all or some of those) and they're trying to get people together even though it has nothing to do with the plot, annoys me. I've quit watching some stuff, not just anime, where they've done that because then they really slack off on the plot :P

But a romance to me needs to be either a slow build up or my favorite type of romance is when you see two people grow to like each other and they don't kiss or whatever until the very last episode of like the last season; something like that. But there are exceptions, like when I feel like the personalities really mesh.

But anime when the "guy/girl suddenly becomes surrounded by other girls/guys" (AKA most harem/fanservice anime) with no plot, I hate those.

Wait wait wait, Asuna and Kirito rushed? They'd known each other for like a year before finally getting together, I would hardly call that rushed. Not to mention all of the life or death fights they went through, it would be hard NOT to fall in love with someone. Also Asuna is a complete badass even before coupling with Kirito.

Yikes... This thread

It's kind of what they did with darker than black, but I love that stuff. Yup


DUDE WHAT

wasn't random at all.
It's just according to a lot of guys I've known that has seen darker than black. They thought the last season was pointless, but I mean I'm not complaining

Am I the only one that gets kind of annoyed when a writer feels the need to throw in a random romance or like romantic hints and fanservice in any of their series?


Yes! I thought I was the only one. It's not just in anime. I seen this stuff like this in Hollywood movies too.

Romance is fine/great if it's the point of a plot arc. Shoe-horned romances are usually/always bad.
Not every story demands it to raise the stakes or provide motivation, and when writers shove a damsel in distress in there to give the mighty hero something to fight for, it's just lazy and stupid. The military dude always has a wife and daughter back home. The masked crusader always has his girlfriend dangling off a bridge. The man with nothing to lose has someone to lose.

Blegh...

It's like...Hulk and Black Widow. Like, why? Why just smash that into the plot?
Like, the world ending isn't enough motivation to fight?


World ending is not really motivation to fight more then love is in a sense.

Feelings of love overpower the need to live in some people.
In hulks case he gave 0 shits about the world ending so it makes sense.


That's not the case at all. Bruce Banner's whole thing is not wanting to be the Hulk because he might hurt someone -- even strangers he has never met. He doesn't need a love interest to be motivated to rescue people. He lived in secrecy and seclusion as a doctor, just so he could stay calm and help anyone. Stopping people from hurting or dying is his entire motivation for everything he does, including removing himself from society. So, no.


Thats a good point still the love scene wasn't that bad some of us enjoyed it.

I'm not a fan of romance either, I've avoided a lot of anime just because of the useless romance that gets thrown in :/

Meh that's besides the point. I just wanted to point out that the two had known each other for a really long time.

Btw just because they are in my profile pic isn't because I'm a die hard fan or anything just thought the pic was cool, so yeah, I wasn't trying to bash on you or anything.

I dunno, I just sorta knew that it was gonna happen and when it did, I was like "meh, whatever" and I didn't even focus on your DP to be honest but hey, just like I said before, everyone has their own opinion on it and when you put it that way, it kinda made sense but I still steer clear of Sword Art because in the end it's about a boy that gets the girl (s?) and I can't deal.

All that romance bs just ruins anime.
Posted 10/10/15

Just didn't want to give off the "Ermahgerd don be dissin on mah bootiful shaw" vibe is all. And yeah I understand, that is basically what the story boils down to in the end.
