    Thank you for answering my question! So genuine feelings is stronger than great chemistry…thanks to that info I can finally truly come to terms with the guy’s decision in

    And while I understand why a boy wouldn’t choose a girl who is not nice towards him, it is kind of funny and interesting how some manga/anime girls do fall in love with the guy who is not that nice towards them, especially at the beginning of the story because things sometimes do change as the story progresses.

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

    It's just my opinion though, there are some guys that go for good chemistry or woman they have great time with.

    It's usually what the real life women tend to choose as well. Though, in most manga/anime, the girl either changes the guy for the better or she sees the hidden good side in him that gets slowly brought out. Bad thing is, women who read those kind of manga tend to be even more loyal to their bad significant others.

    Then I guess the guy from

    had an opinion similar to yours and that's why he made the choice he did.

    True. RL girls do tend to like bad boys.

    True, and that is why I admit that I do like some manga/anime bad boys with hearts of gold.

    Bad thing is, women who read those kind of series tend to believe they can change their significant others, which you can’t. In RL, changing a bad boy into a good boy almost never happens. This makes me reflect about how some series can give the wrong message about love and relationships…

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

    The only thing these kind of series are good for is getting lost in its world, it shouldn't really be used as anything but entertainment.

    Bad boys tend to be boring though. You know they'll just come in, save the good guy in a badass fashion, and then leave with an insult or something, eventually causing him and the good guy to be friends eventually if they already aren't. At least with the good guys, it's interesting to see where, when, and how they'll grow, especially for the woman they love.

    Not all bad boys are boring. Some of them are pretty interesting because they are mysterious and unpredictable.

    When you wrote that comment where you thinking shonen or shoujo? And I can’t recall a manga/anime with a plot like that…at least not right now.

    Good guys can be interesting I agree, but some good guys can be pretty boring and that’s why the girl ends up choosing the bad boy in the end.

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

    Actually, it's because they're "mysterious" and "unpredictable" that makes them predictable and boring to me. I can predict what most will do and when they'll appear, and even if I fail, it doesn't shock me. :x

    I was thinking of shoujo, I think? I forgot, but I may have manga mixed up with something else. <_<

    Shame, since the bad boy can be a jerk.

    Well…I think it all comes down to the fact that my POV about bishie bad boys is a girl’s POV, while your POV about BBB is a boy’s POV...and this conversation about bad boys reminded me of this thread.

    It depends…some bad boys can truly transform (in manga/anime and drama I mean) into great guys. Just to name a couple, Tsukasa from Hana Yori Dango, Ren from Skip Beat, Takeru from Akuma de Sourou.

    Bishi bad boys? Aren't bishies the ones that look feminine? I haven't really seen much of bishie bad boys. They tend to be gentle and puktastic at times. :x

    I don’t know, I use the term bishonen/bishie to refer to manga/anime/drama characters/actors I find cute, handsome and attractive. But I do have to admit that some of the characters in manga/anime that are considered handsome by the fangirls look kind of feminine.

    But not all of them are like that; there are some BBB that are just the opposite of what you said.

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

    I'm assuming Alto refers to Alto Saotome from Macross Frontier His first introduction in the series:

    Spoiler show


    Him as a badass? Well, when he was in his VF-25, he was pretty darn awesome and kickass. But with girls... Romance in Macross Frontier was honestly, frustrating. Basically, he was caught between two girls, Ranka and Sheryl. He kept vacillating between the two of them, and eventually, in the final episode...

    Spoiler show


    Bishounen typically look like girls/feminine - after all the literal translation for the term would be "pretty youth/boy". I think Alto is a classic example.

    God that is such a win picture. Still remember that scene.

    Also, I remember reading somewhere on ghostlighting's blog about the point of a love triangle being that one side falls away and the romance is resolved...but Macross totally screwed with this and went for an annoying harem end. Dammit!

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

    Reviving this thread with a new topic.

    One of my favorite anime series from last anime season (and that is still ongoing) is Hana Saku Iroha. Although romance is not the main theme of the series, it is an important part of Hana Saku. As I watch how the romance unfolds in the series, some questions have come to my mind.

    Regarding romance in manga/anime/Asian drama, do you like for the characters to take the aggressive approach in order to win the heart of the person they like/love, or do you like for the characters to take the passive approach? Which approach do you think is the best one?

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

    I think it depends on the character's personality. Someone like Seiji from Good Ending, I'd prefer he be more aggressive because he is too nice and not aggressive at all. The fact that he does the opposite of what he is for someone he likes shows that he likes that person enough. Though, it could be a sign of stalker. I also prefer some passive approach as well, mix it up.

    With a normally aggressive guy, it's cuter when he goes passive for that girl he likes. :3 Some awkward interaction is funny.

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

    The same can be said for a normally passive guy to go aggressive.
    Rika from Lovecom was aggressive for a while.
    But I like the passive approach better
