Holding Hands is Romantic?!

It's time to talk about playing Barry Manilow for your favourite 2d waifu! It's time to talk about Romance in Anime! Anime likes to take vastly different paths through romantic plots when compared across genres. From Shoujo anime's constant misunderstandings, to Shonen anime's Jesus-kun panty droppers. So I guess we'll talk about that.
