  1. Go and watch Hi Score Girl when it hits Netflix on Christmas Eve. It’s outwardly much more conventional than the couples you’ve listed here, but it is infused with a profound melancholy that somehow makes it seem really special, and deeply romantic – especially considering the romance is embedded in a slapstick comedy that is ostensibly meant as a love letter to…1990s arcade gaming!!

    • Thanks for the recommendation. High Score Girl wasn’t even on my radar until you mentioned it, but I’m always on the lookout for decent romance, so I’ll definitely check it out! I just hope that Akira and Haruo’s relationship isn’t borderline abusive like that of so many others.

  2. This is such a great post and it has been great to see some real diversity in the way relationships have been presented this year. Even within niche genres like yuri, there have been a variety of takes on couples and what we’ve ended up with is a great range of options when looking for a romance in anime.
