In the United States, the men are the ones who show their affections on Valentine’s Day by giving the woman they love various gifts. In Japan, however, women are the ones who confess their affections to the men they are interested in with chocolates (the men choose to reciprocate a month later on White Day).

This Valentine’s Day, regardless of who gets showered with affection, why not celebrate the season of love by watching romantic anime together by the fire? Here are five anime shows that you can easily put on while cozying up with the love of your life.
