Hmm...a good romance manga/anime has to be...maybe complicated love, and somethin you feeling familiar with. And a real romance manga/anime need some sad scenes. That's what I think! ;)

Yeah, some funny scenes. Maybe not so funny as Keitaro's embarrasing moment's in Love Hina, though they are pretty funny, lol. ^_^

For me, good romance anime/manga needs humor, fighting, and surprise! I like surprises!

The recipe for the typical romance anime/manga--

You will need:
1 Main Character
2 Love Interests
1 Adversary*
1+ Random bishounen/bishoujo for seasoning (optional)
* Adversary can be one of the Love Interests, be the Adversary of the Main Character, or be an Adversary of one of the Love Interests

Directions:
Introduce Main Character to one Love Interest, mix well. Add Adversary and heat. Stir in second Love Interest. Allow to boil. If desired, pepper with Random Bishounen/Bishoujo to add spice and flavor.

To see the recipe in action, read any of the following:
Peach Girl
Eerie Queerie
Hana Kimi
INVU
Marmalade Boy
Kodocha

A good romance has to have something that relates to you in some way. Like an unrequited love (like that cute guy you work with, but just wont take a hint..) or even the way the char. mesh together.

-And then maybe some blood and guts action..non-mushy romances are good

A good romance manga/anime will have conflicts in relationship, and conflicts doesn't mean a threesome (that's getting too old anyway). I mean the conflicts created by the settings, circumstances, friendship, rivalries, etc.

For a good romance anime, the plot must be there and clear...i don't like and don't think that a overly-twisted plot such as a triangle love(not all...but most of 'em) or square love is good. Hopefully it's not too long-winded and dragging nor too complicated, the relationship between 2 person in an anime. Such a sweet and touching thing. :)

i think that a romance manga would have to be able somone who loves someone else. i think that does this perfectly is love hina its not just romance but also comedy

shinju hoshi
07-20-2005, 08:19 PM
i like it when a romance anime/manga should be funny and actiony is that even a word oh well. i like blood so i think killing is in order >.< sorry im a samurai freak

I say... lots of drama... thats the kind that I enjoy anyway... Drama... and pain and suffering... then at the end a semi happy ending.... one that makes you ask yourself, "How should I be feeling right now? Happy or Sad?"

Lol...

Yikes. I don't like extremely sad or tragic endings in an romance anime. I'm a happy person!! :D

...Ahem, no. I just want to feel uh..fuzzy and nice after watch an love story unfold. But yes, you need the drama in it.

07-22-2005, 01:43 PM
i dont like sad ending that much 2 but the ending cant be all lovy and sugary or it pisses me off!!!!!!!!!!!!! im an evil child

Hanzo
07-22-2005, 01:56 PM
For a good romance anime or manga, it had to depend on how romantic someone meets and make it all into a good or bad ending. They had to include feelings from what said and what seen. No feelings makes it stupid.

Indeed, and you cant forget that there has to be a plausible way for the ones who fall in love to connect with eachotehr.

I love them because I can relate to them.So much sadness,people who only want love out of life,rage and war,and one bright light that shines over all the madness called love.

There has to be drama! Conflict! Ooh! And hints! SUBTLE hints!
I hate it when characters fall in love too fast...I like it when it's dragged out...XD It makes for more suspense, and when it finally happens, you're like "Finally!" and "I knew it!" love is funny that way..XD

I think that making an anime or manga good for romancing, if their is some sad part in the story.

And if their love is kind of funny that they get along with each other really good, is kind of interesting.

And if they kiss, would really be awesome.

Best part of romance!


But if sometimes they cheated on each other, but that will be very bad.

lol, why do I even thought about that? Silly me.



Well in that case,....

NO!


I don't want anybody to cheat on each other.

But if they do, it's a really bad habit!

And people shouldn't try doing that.

i believe that for it to be good, it has to involve three beautiful magicians all attending an academy going after one guy who cannot use his magic much but his genes are the most powerful part of him. it must have a *caring person who is his wife*, another who wants to kill him, and another who is ruthless in getting what she wants! hehe

Ok, Shinju. But I don't think that Sesshoumaru has any love scene at all, but I do love Sesshomaru.

I think the only way to make a good romance manga in when the guys gal gets kidnapt and the guy has in a way got to get his self ript up into shreads just to win the girl back. but of course there would have to be a twist and that would be that everyone would die




The End

Has to have the charater's relationship develop over time and they don't realise till about half way through. Sad bits, funny bits and not too many intimate bits. Upbeat, not too soppy. You know what I mean...don't you?

FierceFeli.

The most inportant in a romance manga is a beautiful girl who fells in love with a hot guy and that he doesn't know it at first (because all of the girls olve him), but he is in love with her too... the guy takes the first step (of course) and kiss her on first date, and then they make a lovley couple in the rest of the serie...^^ that is romantic I think!

Girl meets guy, guy talks 2 girl, they go out, they fall in love, they get married, they get it on (before or after fall in love), they get bored with each other and find some other person, cheat on each other, they each find out, they have a 4-some with the new ppl, dramatic ending.

Girl is bored in life, cute guy comes from somewhere else, they like each other & go out, somthin strange happens which makes is harder for them.
Like Tsubasa Chronicle

LOVE TRIANGLES, That's what I think, If the Anime had a Love triangle it would be more intresting, I mean it's not Nice that, from the Beginig of the seires You'll know who's the Charecter will fall in love with, It's nice if it's a little complicated.

lovelykagome
11-11-2005, 04:19 PM
i think good romance anime/manga has to be a story with complicated love, some sad and funny scenes and something you feeling familiar with.

animeseishi
11-15-2005, 03:27 AM
well... an anime and a manga is good when (if it is a romance) it has sad parts in it as well as some comedy.. too sad animes would be too boring and too much comedy will probably lead to nonsense... also the animation should be good and the lines should be well made...

Uno_Caste
01-21-2006, 08:02 AM
When there's love with a bit of humor around. Normally dramatic & touching.^_^

little_shy_girl
02-03-2006, 01:48 PM
I would say a romantic manga needs, a guy who likes a girl in secret and then the girl fall in love with the guy and they both love each other without knowing the other likes them. One day finaly found out and become the best couple of all. :D I like the cardcaptors, Li and Sakura. :laugh: Maybe Final Fantasy 8. :)

shinju hoshi
03-13-2006, 05:12 PM
i think what makes a good romance anime/manga is when the boy and girl dont instantly fall in lov; cuz its not realistic but when they fall in love slowly

~*Athena*~
03-17-2006, 02:49 AM
i think it's how the characters (couples) treat each other..

for me the effective way would be the connection between them..

a couple with somehow a funny connection would be effective..:D

PleilA
03-17-2006, 08:29 PM
everyone says funny, not too much funny, its more serious. there should defintely be jealously, for sure fighting basically like a soap opera , oh oh TRAGIDY like near death and there lover trys to save them

Sifter
05-25-2006, 07:26 PM
I believe that in aromance anime or manga the ending needs to be predictable, but then throw in some plot twists so you end up questioning the way the story will end.

The worst is when the main character or the person he/she is in love with ends up dieing or being killed right before or after they tell each other how they feel ... that totally pisses me off.

Fullmoon_light9264
05-25-2006, 08:07 PM
well what i think makes a good romance manga is that there has to some kind of bad past or some really diffacult thing the young lovers have to get past. Making there love grow stronger. I don't like sappy love stories like Romeo and Juliet! YUCK

yea thats it

lang_sakti
07-13-2006, 09:24 PM
the plots of course. not too slow, not too fast. take time. also a little bit of humour. i really don't like serious story. the characters also important. the characters must be well developed. and involved side character to 'shake' the feeling.

~Pure Soul~
07-15-2006, 12:02 AM
Umm I think a romance should make you cry and that there should be 2 lovy people so in love that they are shy and that they are kissing and such.^^ cute!!

Serenith Youkai
07-15-2006, 04:44 PM
Ok a good ramance would be love complications but not in a seriously dramatic way. There shouldn't be a happy moment and then interupted by a sad moment >>;; And I like the almost kiss thing but it's annoying when it's repeated a million times and then it's the 25th episode when they actually kiss...I hate that >>;;

sauske i love you
07-15-2006, 06:09 PM
A good romance story needs:
*Cute or good looking characters ( duhh )
*Suprising twists that will keep you guessing
*It should also have some sad and funny scenes to make it more interesting

What i think is when some1 got a crush on some1 but that some1 likes another1 and falls for him/her. then the first some1 does crazy stuff to win her back

Shiro Akuma
08-08-2006, 09:23 AM
It's characters you can relate to. It's seeing something unfold that you feel is right. It's getting wrapped up watching two people fall all over themselves trying to say and do the right things. That's what makes a romance manga/anime good and great. It doesn't matter how it's done, girl meets guy, guy meets girl, doesn't matter. Just as long it's honest and truthful will do it.

~kawaii~cherry~
08-13-2006, 12:28 AM
A good romance anime or manga should have lots of cute moments that you can just swoon over, hilarious scenes you can giggle helplessly over, sad 'please-don't-let-me-go' scenes that you can cry over, and (of course) adorable couples that you just can't get enough of!

AND a happy ending ^.^

I think a good romance manga needs a jealous person and a he or she that is loyal ancute it shows that some one that is pretty inst stuck up.

anime4fun
09-07-2006, 06:22 PM
when it comes down to it, I rely on the characters rather than the story. A good character driven anime or manga can still make a dull story line interesting. Because we believe in what they are, what they represent and what they do.

of course its great to have both, but its not always the case. so yeh, Characters you can relate to and see apart of yourself in, a story that will question your own beliefs on what is being promoted. I guess what everyone else who posted in this topic feels like to.
