    depicts what I think love between a couple should be, they care about each other, they support each other, they inspire each other (inspire to become a better person), they help each other, they complete/complement each other, they understand each other, they are there for each other, in short, they truly love each other. Plus, it is so adorable and great witnessing how they develop feelings for each other and end up falling in love.
    Reminds me of Good Ending. Not as perfect as Tomoya and Nagisa, but close to it. Similar to how Sawako becomes a better person with SHota's help as well. :3

    Quote Quote:
    Let’s think back during HS, I don’t remember popular boys falling in love with unpopular girls…I’m not saying that an unpopular guy falling in love with an unpopular girl is impossible, but it is not very common for that to happen.


    Well…it is not that is hard to make friends with a nice person, the thing is not everyone wants to see beyond the cover, most people just judge a book by its cover, they judge a person for its appearance and don’t spend enough time trying to know the person behind that appearance.
    I guess not, but the girl would probably have to be pretty weird instead of misunderstood, like Sawako was. Shota wasn't a dickhead either, he saw some of Sawako's real side and didn't really begin the relationship by misunderstanding who she is, but what she wanted with him.

    First impression is everything.

    While I respect your POV, I don’t agree with it. I don’t think that series showed the strength of true love at all. Having sex all the time doesn’t necessarily = true love.

    True. So I guess in order for a popular boy to fall in love with a unpopular girl, the popular boy has to be able to see beyond stereotypes and outer appearances and the unpopular girl has not be misunderstood but kind and cute.

    I am not pervy! I swear, it's someone else posting on my account to make me look bad! It's Charles doing it, I swear! :x Innocence and perviness can coexist, I guess, but perviness needs to be low?

    I r always rite.

    That's not what I meant. It's despite the trials, challenges, and tribulations, the couple stays together and their bonds are stronger. Even when the guy and Seri broke up, it wasn't a real break up because the guy needed to get the other douche off Seri's... nono area, which worked.

    But yeah, sex doesn't really = love or true love, it's about the feelings.

    Can I read it instead?

    Not sure about this female lead, but Utsumi from GE actually improves and becomes a better person because of the female lead. Rather than be constantly shy, he's a bit aggressive too (although still ultimately nice), but his perviness hasn't changed a bit. xD

    The unpopular girl has to not be a weirdo in teh first place. <_< Though, if a popular boy comes across the unpopular girl a la Kimi ni Todoke, romance can happen because he saw her in a way that she actually is rather than what others say about her.

    Exactly, but it's still enough for people to determine how a person is. For example, say you saw me making inappropriate jokes about a friend. Your first impression would be "what an asshole, I refuse to talk to him!" It's because you might fear I'll treat you the same way or not really be kind towards you or respectful. However, later on if you see me helping out someone when few others would, then you might change your mind and actually go up and talk to me to get to know me better. Problem is, the second part doesn't always happen, though I guess in romance manga, it either does or the boy and girl gets closer and opinions slowly change.


    Sorry for tl;dr paragraph.

    I guess…but it can of depends on your definition of innocence.

    Ahhh…I get what you meant now. Thanks for clarifying that for me!

    You can watch it, you can play it, and yes, you can read it but the manga is not as good as the anime or the VN.

    They both change for the better in Clannad, Nagisa and Tomoya become better versions of themselves because of each other.

    He's veeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeery pervy. Pervy girls are fun though. Sometimes it makes me wonder how Shota and Sawako's romance would be like if Sawako was pervier.

    Play it? Hmm, what makes the anime or whatever VN is better than the manga?

    How were they like before?

    Which kinda sucks, but it's understandable as people tend to be selfish and want to avoid problems or complications. You may avoid me because you don't want to go out with me due to fear of being treated badly due to first impression, but you also realize that impressions can be faked, hence why it can be hard to convince people, especially when they already see this person as something.

    Good. :3

    If Sawako was pervy she would have innocent perviness though, like a combination of innocence with low perviness. Like Subaru from Mayo Chiki, she has that kind of perviness.

    Quote Quote:

    You can play the visual novel since it is kind of like a game. The manga isn’t very faithful to the canon material (the VN).

    It is hard to explain w/o spoiling the story, but let’s just say they both overcome difficult things about their lives and personalities.

    True. Although, sometimes first impressions do reveal the true character of a person, sometimes they show how a person really is.

    Well…there is a light-hearted romance in Bleach; however, I think the relationship of my OTP in Bleach is based on trust, understanding, on being there for each other, and many other things that make that pairing way more than a light-hearted romance, IMHO of course. ^_^

    It'd be weird to see either Kimi ni Todoke main characters be perverted. Their romance is awesome in my opinion because it's so cute and so innocent.

    One shonen pairing I have that fits the description you gave is Allen & Lenalee in D. Gray-man. They're not official, but they have a deep emotional and spiritual connection with each other. Oftentimes I find that romance is thrown in as an afterthought in action heavy shonen.

    Reviving this thread with a question:

    In manga or anime, do you like one-sided loves? Are you in favor or against these kinds of loves?

    As for me…it depends on the way the one-sided love is portrayed; for instance,

    Re: Romance in the Manga/Anime/Asian Drama World

    It depends. One-sided love liek with Oonuma pissed me off cuz she was clingy and annoying. She was all "Seiji seiji seiji!" However, Seiji's one-sided love for Shou was good because he was actually trying to improve himself for her, although the love changed.

    Naruto's love for Sakura was kind of funny and yet annoying, but Sakura's love for Sasuke was annoying.

    If it's stalkerish or obsessive like Oonuma's love or Sakura's love, then no gusta. If it's good and helps the characters improve, like Naruto (when he fougth Gaara) and Seiji, then I'm all for it.

    What series are these characters from?

    Why was Naruto’s love for Sakura funny? And…isn’t Hinata in love with Naruto? Is Hinata one-sided love annoying as well?

    So you do like Naruto’s love for Sakura…because it helped him become stronger...

    Good Ending, silly.

    Because of the way he acted, like how he tied up Sasuke and pretended to be Sasuke, but had to go to the bathroom becuase he drank spoiled milk. All just to find out Sakura's true feelings. The way he keeps hitting on Sakura is kinda funny too, but sad when she's still after Sasuke. Hinata's one-sided love isnt' as annoying as she's not trying to get in anyone's way. Hell, she even became a better person by following Naruto's example: more self confidence and hard work...

    I don't because he deserves someone better than Sakura. Sakura never saw his true worth until way later as opposed to Hinata, although she was too meek and quiet.

    No one knows. There are currently assumptions he could be gay as he's spurned every women's love, which include Sakura, Ino, Karin, and more. <_<

    He does, but still, it took Sakura too long to recognize Naruto for what he really is, whereas Hinata recognized Naruto. Hinata saw Naruto wasn't just a screwup like people thought, and that he had confidence and ability to change himself. It wasn't until Naruto proved to himself that Sakura began to respect him, until then it was Sasuke on her mind.
