Girls who've been longing for their guys for so long finally having their feelings reciprocated, reciprocated very strongly at that, gives me quite a warm feelings in my heart and instantly makes me happy. It's the waiting and the eventual reciprocation that felt like my ideal of a romance: love that breaks self-doubts.
I significantly warmed up to Naruto, whose last arc I can barely bear, because of this warming effect. DitF wasn't exactly my favourite anime, but I can't deny that my opinions of it have improved significantly. I still wouldn't recommend it to anyone. That's why I gave a shit about this show.
couldn't care less about the mechs to be honest
