Valentine’s Day Greetings — Anime Style 2016


Today is Valentine’s Day, that special time of year when couples go the extra mile for a romantic evening together and when singles go the extra mile to stop being single. It’s celebrated in Japan too, although there it is especially centered around women giving chocolates to men they associate with — although romantic activities are part of it too.

Here are the top Valentine’s messages from the anime, manga, and Japanese gaming world:

Diabolik Lovers

Durarara!!×2

Kana Hanazawa (Anri) and Toshiyuki Toyonaga (Mikado)

It’s also the birthdays of Kururi and Mairu.

Fate/stay night

Shinji shows off the booty he got from Tōsaka.

Flying Witch

Eri Suzuki (Chinatsu Kuramoto) and Minami Shinoda (Makoto Kowata) show off “witch’s fingers” cookies, although they think they’re disturbingly realistic.

Hanayamata

Is the order a rabbit?

Kan Colle

Kan Colle fans are also treated to special Valentine’s voice messages and chocolates from these ships.
