9 Anime You Should Probably Watch On Valentines Day

valentines_11So we’re less than 24 hours away from the International Obligatory Chocolate Exchange Day; And boy, are supermarkets as desperate as ever to convince you that their cacao brand is in fact the one that gets your partner more aroused.

Obviously I’m talking about Valentines Day; A day that’s either celebrated, mourned or looked at indifferently depending on the person.

For me personally the title “Valentines Day” is really just an awesome excuse to pig out on chocolate while watching corny shoujo romances; In my books; A valentines spent in bed is a day well spent.

Are you nodding your head in agreement right now, or are you frowning and asking yourself what it is that got into me?

Anyway and anyhow; As expected of the medium, there’s an appropiate Valentines anime for everyone to enjoy; Be it the hopeless romantics or the cynical watchers who claim that Valentines was invented by Primark.

1) For the ones watching from a distance; A.K.A “Senpai Notice Me!” syndrome.

Having a hard time getting senpai to notice you? Try Ouran Higschool Host Club. I guarantee that it will get your mind out of the gutter as this anime has no problem in shoving all the shoujo clich├ęs out of the window. A good alternative would be Bokura Ga Ita; As this has the most representative “Notice me Senpai!” syndrome out of all the anime I have ever watched.

2) So Valentines Day is a commercial stunt invented by Target?

Feeling smart and different? Watch the Tatami Galaxy and feel included in it’s cynical character line-up and it’s messed up romance plotlines. Alternatives include Bakemonogatari.

3) For the lonely romantics;

Feeling sad? Get some of Chihayafuru to sit and think; “Damn, the romance in this anime is about as unsatisfactory as my real life romance!“Want to go a little further? Try every harem anime ever to feel even less fulfilled.

4)For the lonely and heartbroken romantics;

Are you one level ahead of the lonely romantic? ‘Cause boy, will you be up for a ride watching Rumbling Hearts or ef – A tale of memories as your friends ask you why you’re crying, and you swear to them that it’s about a broken heart and not a Chinese cartoon. Alternatives include every two-episode yaoi OVA in anime history; or Kanon 2006. Kanon (original) if you’re feeling adventurous.

5) For the ones who “don’t need a man.”

Men or women; All the same. I suggest you don’t even come close to Kaichou wa maid sama and avoid Special A at all costs if you’re feeling independent. Instead, get some of that Black Lagoon and Evangelion to feel special.

6)For the ones whose relationship never succeded;

Oh yeah; It’s that time of the year where everything around you remind you of those relationships that always went to exactly nowhere; Hey, can’t blame you.

Fantazising is free; And you can’t blame the failure of your romantic shenanigans on you watching Highschool DxD or every ecchi ever on International Lovers Day.

7) For the (un)lucky bastards with non 2-D romantic relationships;

Watch or re-watch School Days and rethink your decisions.

8) Do you drink away your romantic mishaps?

Don’t feel shy, man; There’s hentai and ecchi to be watched. Doesn’t sound like your kind of thing? Cry over your failures while watching Clannad or Kamisama Hajimemashita.

9) Valetines Day A.K.A; Read all the yaoi and eat all the chocolate Day.

Self explanatory title is self explanatory.

– – –

All bad jokes aside; I sincerly wish you the best of Valentines day; Be it with your significant other or with your significant device with internet. All in all, have a lovely eveningday.

  1. Alright, I’m going to comment as I read this post. Here I go:
    I love Host Club! It’s hilarious. Bakemonogatari is another guilty pleasure of mine… My favorite character is Nadeko. Kanon 2006 is beautifully animated and I would highly recommend it. I’m not adventurous enough to give the original Kanon a watch lol.
    School days made me skeptical of every anime I watched after it. I shudder to this day.
    Clannad is my all-time favorite anime hands down! I’m so glad you mentioned it. It makes my heart feel warm, then it stabs it, then it makes it feel warm again.
    You have a lovely day as well :)

    • This was fun to read! Thanks :D
      Nadeko was pretty damn awesome in the second season, and I applaud you for not being adventurous enough to go through the original Kanon x)
      Clannad is absolutely amazing! Deff one of my all time favourites aswell! Thank you again!

  2. Hey! Love your list!! I only wish that I actually did number 9… XD
    Also, at the beginning I was nodding my head. And it’s not just holidays, everyday is well spent like that. :)
    Is Kanon original bad or something? And I have no idea which version I saw…
    Clannad is great. The only anime I can think of that I can even compare Clannad to is Ano Hana which I just recently saw. It’s so beautiful. There’s a real difference between the two though, Clannad hits you in the face while Ano Hana basically tells you right off the bat that you’re heading towards “Crying my eyes out right now please leave me alone”-ville.
    Also are these good to watch? Tatami Galaxy, Bakemonogatari, Chihayafuru, Rumbling Hearts, and ef- the tale of memories. I haven’t seen any of those yet, but if they’re good I can put them higher on my to-watch list.
    Thank you for your time and post <3
    Also, I am now following you so please keep up the good work <3 <3 <3

    • Thank you very much for reading my blog! :)
      Well, Kanon 2003 has 12 episodes (I think) and apparently is just a very, very badly animated harem show. Kanon 2006 was done by Kyoani and is absolutely amazing, as you probably know x)
      Anohana? I could never really get into that show… it felt hella melodramatic even more so than Nagi No Asukara, but to each their own, right?
      Chihayafuru is one of my all time favourites, so I would definitely recommend you to watch it! Especially if you like shoujo as much as I do.
      As for Tatami and Bakemonogatari…well, they’re weird, but the good kind of weird: Though I wouldn’t recommend you watch it if you have a headache xD Rumbling Hearts is…interesting, but different. I watched it years ago and I liked it, same goes for EF, though my tastes have changed so really you’re the only judge that counts :)
      Thank you again for taking your time in reading my amateurly written blog, I appreciate it <3

      • No problem. And your blog looks great so far <3
        Alright I'm watching Chihayafuru after I watch Steins;Gate and another anime…. Paradise Kiss? I don't know- maybe something similar.

        Ano Hana was extremely dramatic but I think that was the entire point, but yep to each their own. If every one fell I love with the same anime characters, wars over anime characters would be starting right now. Luckily, not everyone loves the same characters.
        Thank you for replying. <3 <3 <3
