Technically this should be a White Day picture, since Jun is a trap.
Today is White Day! So if Valentine’s Day in Japan is the bizarro version, then White Day is like the one that we Americans celebrate. That is, in Japan, on 2/14 girls will give chocolates to guys they like (or feel socially obligated to, which is pretty much all guys they know). On 3/14, the guys who received chocolate must repay that kindness with gifts of their own. But it doesn’t have to be chocolate.
Of course, since there’s the SAD (Singles Awareness Day) that’s held on 2/14, there should be a March counterpart as well, right? Today is also Black Day for those guys who got nothing a month before. I guess I should be celebrating that…
Then again, I’d rather just skip all this crap and celebrate like a true nerd. Yes, today is Pi Day as well. I should probably be spending some time memorizing digits in pi.
And what does this have to do with anime or manga? I totally an episode of D.N.Angel where White Day is the main focus. And I think anime uses both holidays pretty well for plot development. I can’t remember any other White Days in anime, but I’m sure they’re out there.

There are a couple of white days in anime but they tend to come in longer running series. The main reason is that many anime romantic show for about a year of in series time and either Christmas or Valentines day is a better ending point.
I distinctly remember a very hectic White Day in Junpei Manaka 68%(Ichigo 100%)
Didn’t give any guys chocolate last month so I just celebrate pi day. It’s the only day that memorizing 68 digits of pi is okay.
White day is featured in the xxxholic. YÅ«ko gives a Valentines gift and mentions she wants double back on White day. I think it’s a neat idea from a male perspective, only have to give to those who get you something. Of course not bad from the female side if they give chocolate and get diamonds in return.
It’s also Pi Day. w00t 3.14!!!!!! Now go bake yourselves a nice hot pastry!
After Kit from LH gave Keitaro a 10 yen chocolate, she asked for some VERY expensive gifts on White Day.
Happy Pi day then, may you recieve chocolate from a girl within 3.14……..+ years from now.
I knew I liked your blog for a reason. You officially win for using a Jun image.
Theres a white day episode in fruits basket I think. I think it’s the one where Momiji takes her to that spa place.
FYI: the American romantic holiday for March 14ths is already taken by Steak & BJ day. http://www.steakandbjday.com/
