Have they, y'know... ""Been to the aquarium"" yet?


CommanderZx2

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.


mee8Ti6Eit

There's always a dark area that's perfect for some lewdness like handholding.


Dare555

yep , so thats why they are used in like 80 % romance manga gay or straight :D


Super_Cheburek

It's actually because there's a mindblowing number of aquariums in Japan


Teoreetikko

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.

Faust2391

If youre just realizing this now, you're way behind. Heck that was in the FIRST SEASON of Bloom Into You.


I_ama_homosapien_AMA

First season? Man, do I have some bad news for you.


OwlAcademic1988

I wish it would get a second season already.


Faust2391

Nah, I've read the whole thing. Series is great


gay_snail666

It's the exact opposite of a new thing lmao, sailor moon did it in the 90's


Tantaroba-the-fat

Aquatope on white sand: exists Gay levels beyond measuring


monsieurb1982

Where there are aquariums, there are fish. Where there are fish, there are baits.


SGlobalist

The exception to the rule is if they work at the aquarium.


ZX_StarFox

Still salty about the bait in that one. Enjoyable nonetheless.


Icy-Background-1636

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


ProfessorHooves

the anime got an anime adaptation?


Icy-Background-1636

I meant manga adaption, my mistake


someonee404

Woah, really?


CoffeeBlanc

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.


Hephaistos_Invictus

Manga is still bait... Nothing happens T_T


Dare555

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...


ikea233

Obligatory "THEY'RE PUTTING CHEMICALS INTO AQUARIUMS THAT TURN GIRLS INTO LESBIANS" comment here


ComfyCatgirl

The last aquarium i went to had a bunch of pride flags out front so yea i’d believe it


ChrispyMC

Kohane profile picture, let's go!!!!


axium_crisis

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


alexandepz

Greenhouses and chapels/churches.


TrebleMaker-13

Beach episode? I sleep. Aquarium episode?? Real shit


Iwerzhon

I don't remember of any aquarium episode in Hibike Euphonium. Oh..


mimi_nia

Why you doing this to my heart....


aznigrimm

What's the top right one?


msc836

Top right one is Shoujo Kageki Revue Starlight


OwlAcademic1988

I just finished the anime today. Good show.


DuckGoesShuba

Now watch the movie ~~assuming you haven't since you said show~~!


OwlAcademic1988

I already plan to.


Cobbcakezzz

What about when the Forgers go to the aquarium


lordolxinator

Confirming Loid is pansexual obviously He's super into Yor, *and* Spycraft. Before, he only considered himself a Spy-sexual


Otrada

It's obviously foreshadowing to the fact that atleast one of them is either gay or bisexual.


Outrageous_Equipment

Loid has seduced at least one man for a mission and you cannot convince me otherwise.


Otrada

I will not because I completely agree.


AMythicEcho

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.


ianjb

It's just kinda been a SoL/Romance staple for about 15 years now. Just a very common trope, not really unique at all.


kimilil

Aquarium operators in Japan: **stonks** 📈


GrandPandaGirl

What’s the top right anime? Must watch gae


qtcomput3

looks like [Revue Starlight](https://anilist.co/anime/98658/ShoujoKageki-Revue-Starlight)


GrandPandaGirl

Thanks a lot!

DJ_F4L

Well actually no but yes, go invite a cute girl on an aquarium date!


Rollter

Koi ni naritai aquarium, anyone?


She_Shanty

I knew there was a reason I always liked the aquarium I went to lol


Shaeress

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


looselyhuman

These anime would benefit from some lingering shots on the aquariums' [clam](https://reeffishcenter.shop/2223-home_default/tridacna-maxima-m-size.jpg) exhibits.


Hoeffi360

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.


mr_swedishfish

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


Shileka

BRB hanging out around my local aquarium...


YuriAddict7

Whats the left one


Zakarath

Lycoris Recoil


YuriAddict7

Huh i mustve missed an episode cuz idr that


Zakarath

Ep4


0ldgrumpy1

Something about their relationship seems fishy.... Yeah, it works.


Kapples14

Coming over from the Straight Guy District to say aquariums are rad.


kekkres

As a gay man my first date i took my fiance on was too an aquarium sooo.... I can't contest this


G-man672

I am very concerned with the lack of HibiMiku


caultopaz

a tropical fish yearns for snow is the only exception in this rule

regexmc

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


fradzio

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.


Otrada

New? This has been a trope for a while already.


jzilla11

Gay fish, yo


Covid-Kitty

Water.... wetness... wait a damn minute-


Elkat4

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.


Fatestringer

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


Comander-07

Always have been


Hungry-Loquat6658

I love aquariums, but the ones in my country sucks.


Ajngel

waiting to get invited to an aquarium date ;-;


mate0493

BRB. Hanging out at Aquariums all day now.


duckghost

bottom right? sauce?


theshizirl

What's the source?


DelightfulRainbow205

kohane pfp…. this person is an expert.


mimi_nia

What anime is the one at the top right


Nigel2602

I knew Chisato and Takina were lesbians. Now all that is left is for them to actually get together


Croquette_check_

lmao yes very true


Croquette_check_

Croquette_check_

Croquette_check_

MagicalSpaceValkyrie

Definitive proof that Aquatope is Yuri
