Why can't we have a romance anime with a a male and a female lead that actually get together without half a season of filler? And with a female lead that ISN'T a 2d wish-fulfillment character?

Lovely Complex anyone?

>>10267661

The guy was like 25, and they didn't have sex until she was 17. That relationship was pretty healthy if you ask me. If you're old enough to marry, you're old enough to be in a committed relationship which Living Game was about.

I also recommend Love Roma, acts semi-decent, and its basically one guy's goal of getting into the pants of the girl he likes. And telling everyone every single step he makes to reaching that goal. And it works for the most part.

Technically there wasn't any filler. But at least the relationship was gradual enough to make it satisfying.
>>
>>10267735
that's still a 10 year age gap. Any decent married couple should have played the field for a while before they hitched, and it sounds like the only person she's slept with is him. Never good news.

She actually lost her virginity to one of her classmates, and is the main reason why she left her home and parents in the first place. And a ten year gap becomes less icky over time. By the end of the series, she was 18, and he was 28. Nothing wrong there.

>>
>>10267894
>By the end of the series, she was 18, and he was 28. Nothing wrong there.

which means she's entering college, and he's getting into his 30's. What are they supposed to talk about?
>>
>>10267926
The two of them, then the world. But a better gap in ages would be nice, agreed.
>>
>>10267926

Life, architecture, getting married, what to eat that night. I'm not saying they wouldn't have their problems, but not every relationship has to based on your significant other being your best friend.

I'm just glad the guy in Living Game wasn't a living scumbag.
>>
>>10267894

It's still kind of a large gap, and both people would probably be at different stages in life which would probably cause some problems.

Ultimately though age is just a number. As long as someone is at the age of consent (17 is in almost all places) they should be able to make a decision for themselves. It really isn't a big deal.

you need something to compare your love life to. Otherwise you'll find yourself sleeping around on your spouse and finding the sex better than it ever was with him/her. Every girl needs to go through a slutty phase before she settles down. It's part of growing up

This is the truth because it's what you think?

Bullshit. Not everyone is the same as you, or your friends or whatever girls you've been with. The two of them are both very devoted to each other and very family oriented.

To think that they'll fuck around just because they haven't fucked anyone else is stupid.

They're close enough. Most girls aren't interested in the vidya, or animu for that matter. Politics is often a subject I end up discussing with girls, but I don't think it's the type of thing that would ever lead to attraction.

The closest I ever got to that was having a girl tell me that I was "A good person" after explaining my views on abortion and ending a small argument that had come up.

Yeah. I'm not sure what you pulled out of it but she sounded sincere. However it was a "You're a good person in a completely non-threatening and non-attractive way, and i'd never even consider fucking you under any circumstances" statement.

Is that what you had pulled from it, or was your impression different.

KareKano goes into the shitter after volume 8 or 9. The drama becomes full force crap, the focus shifts to everyone but the two main characters, and the writing level just drops several levels.

Nodame_Cantabile's pretty good. Although it worries me that Nodame and her boytoy hadn't had sex yet. Don't give up Nodame! You can do it Nodame! He isn't gay Nodame!

>a romance anime with a a male and a female lead that actually get together without half a season of filler?
Those types of shows aren't exactly hard to come by. There's probably just as many of those as there are Harem type shows. They eventually become just as stale. It all depends on what types of shows you surround yourself with really

I'm actually starting to go back to my harem type anime manga just because I want something a bit slower and less dramatic

shows like Midori no Hibi and Seto no Hanayome
not exactly shining examples of generic harem but they have their traits and are still fun to read and watch
>>
I like B-shock. Not only do the main protagonists male and female not love each other, they are forced together at risk of being blown apart.

They get 1m of personal space.

Getting back on topic, most of these types of stories don't have a half season of filler, they usually have the whole show being filler and the leads only getting together at the very end.

The female lead is usually a wish fulfillment 2d character because most of these types of shows are aimed at males who would hate the female if she acted like a normal person.

The only exceptions I can personally think of are Kare Kano which was already mentioned and Marmalade Boy.

It wasn't really a Gainax ending. It was just a non-ending due to the original director (Anno) getting 86ed and the story having to end in the middle of a story-arc.

it's pretty good for a Gundam series, one of the few where the Gundams AREN'T the good guys, but it's got as much casual killing-off of characters as the Eden manga. So don't bother caring too much about any of the cast

>>10268598
rule of thumb concerning all things gundam:
The fanart is almost always more interesting than the actual series.
>>
>>10268490
Seto no Hanayome would also follow along the same lines, though probably for wish-fulfillment as well.

For ef, Renji and Chihiro are essentially together early on, dealing with the complexities of it later on.

The thing that made Living Game great was that it wasn't really about will they or won't they get together. They were pretty much officially together from like, book 4, and he figured out she liked him by like, book 2. It was about them being able to make their relationship work, despite their age differences, and problems with money, careers, friends, etc.

I think one of the simplest scenes in living game kinda sums the whole show up. When she's trying to get the money for college, and so he tries to give up smoking just to help save that eeextra little amount. And it makes him miserable and grouchy, but he keeps doing it anyway.
