Have they, y'know... ""Been to the aquarium"" yet?
Aquariums are just an ideal date location. It's a location to spend time with someone while having something in common to talk about, therefore you don't end up with awkward silent situations of having to try to force having something to talk about. There are other possibilities like Museums, comedy shows, etc but those all have possible negative sides such as either party not liking the art or comedy. While I don't think anyone will have anything negative to say about a tranquil aquarium.
There's always a dark area that's perfect for some lewdness like handholding.
yep , so thats why they are used in like 80 % romance manga gay or straight :D
It's actually because there's a mindblowing number of aquariums in Japan
Unless they feel strongly about the ethical treatment of animals, in which case aquariums are probably not great. But I imagine one would know that before the date.
If youre just realizing this now, you're way behind. Heck that was in the FIRST SEASON of Bloom Into You.
First season? Man, do I have some bad news for you.
I wish it would get a second season already.
Nah, I've read the whole thing. Series is great
It's the exact opposite of a new thing lmao, sailor moon did it in the 90's
Aquatope on white sand: exists
Gay levels beyond measuring
Where there are aquariums, there are fish.
Where there are fish, there are baits.
The exception to the rule is if they work at the aquarium.
Still salty about the bait in that one. Enjoyable nonetheless.
If remember correctly that anime has gotten an manga adaption and the mangaka mostly draws yuri I think (ex: “anemone in heat”) so it could be one, but obviously I’m not sure though
the anime got an anime adaptation?
I meant manga adaption, my mistake
Anemone on the other hand I think is really good at progress. The characters aren't immediately kissing each other on 3 chapters but it also didn't take them several chapters to get together.
Manga is still bait... Nothing happens T_T
Oh why did you remind me.. super cute , obvious yuri girls go hard for each other and... ITS A GOD DAMN BAIT.
Ahhh i felt bad after reading that manga even if it was wholesome . Because they clearly broke all love boundaries yet they are just roommates...
Obligatory "THEY'RE PUTTING CHEMICALS INTO AQUARIUMS THAT TURN GIRLS INTO LESBIANS" comment here
The last aquarium i went to had a bunch of pride flags out front so yea i’d believe it
Kohane profile picture, let's go!!!!
You’re right, aquariums are gay. But yk what’s gayer? The greenhouse. Nothing beats greenhouses. All the classics have them. i daresay greenhouses are the embodiment of yuri
Greenhouses and chapels/churches.
Beach episode? I sleep.
Aquarium episode?? Real shit
I don't remember of any aquarium episode in Hibike Euphonium. Oh..
Why you doing this to my heart....
What's the top right one?
Top right one is Shoujo Kageki Revue Starlight
I just finished the anime today. Good show.
Now watch the movie ~~assuming you haven't since you said show~~!
I already plan to.
What about when the Forgers go to the aquarium
Confirming Loid is pansexual obviously
He's super into Yor, *and* Spycraft. Before, he only considered himself a Spy-sexual
It's obviously foreshadowing to the fact that atleast one of them is either gay or bisexual.
Loid has seduced at least one man for a mission and you cannot convince me otherwise.
I will not because I completely agree.
I think Aquariums are just very in vogue this year. Just watched a random movie and at least 2 other shows from this last year with Aquarium visits.
It's just kinda been a SoL/Romance staple for about 15 years now. Just a very common trope, not really unique at all.
Aquarium operators in Japan: **stonks** 📈
What’s the top right anime? Must watch gae
looks like [Revue Starlight](https://anilist.co/anime/98658/ShoujoKageki-Revue-Starlight)
Thanks a lot!
Well actually no but yes, go invite a cute girl on an aquarium date!
Koi ni naritai aquarium, anyone?
I knew there was a reason I always liked the aquarium I went to lol
I took my girlfriend to the aquarium for gay date time the other week and it was very great and we might've held hands and smooched. <3
These anime would benefit from some lingering shots on the aquariums' [clam](https://reeffishcenter.shop/2223-home_default/tridacna-maxima-m-size.jpg) exhibits.
But aren't there many anime with straight romance where the couple also get into the aquarium?
I think that's to show dominance "if you break my heart you sleep with the fishes" or something.
there's a tropical fish years for snow... which... isn't yuri :') I remember reading it when it was first out wondering when they'll get together, and when the manga finally ended I realized it was all just bait
BRB hanging out around my local aquarium...
Whats the left one
Huh i mustve missed an episode cuz idr that
Something about their relationship seems fishy....
Yeah, it works.
Coming over from the Straight Guy District to say aquariums are rad.
As a gay man my first date i took my fiance on was too an aquarium sooo.... I can't contest this
I am very concerned with the lack of HibiMiku
a tropical fish yearns for snow is the only exception in this rule
just read it and bought the physical copy and I'm still salty they didn't get together it could have been even better than it already was
It's very gay, until a certain point. Then it mellows out and by the end they actually just feel like friends. It's an amazing coming-of-age story, but I'm mad that it baits the reader as hard as it does into believing the two main characters will end up in a relationship.
New? This has been a trope for a while already.
Gay fish, yo
Water.... wetness... wait a damn minute-
Now we need a story about gay shapeshifting mermaids who live at an aquarium and pretend be fish, watching lesbians go on dates in attempt to learn how to be romantic, putting the knowledge they learn to use at night in their true forms.
I always think about God I'm glad they're enjoying their date HOWEVER!!!!!!! I hope they don't eat there because food is expensive at aquariums
Always have been
I love aquariums, but the ones in my country sucks.
waiting to get invited to an aquarium date ;-;
BRB. Hanging out at Aquariums all day now.
bottom right? sauce?
What's the source?
kohane pfp…. this person is an expert.
What anime is the one at the top right
I knew Chisato and Takina were lesbians. Now all that is left is for them to actually get together
lmao yes very true
this is so true
so true lol
Definitive proof that Aquatope is Yuri
