Let’s Have a Happy Anti-Valentine’s Day

1. It’s Valentine’s Day!Fate/Zero

Love is in the air, Cupid has a quiver full of arrows, and corporations are ready to sell you TONS of cards!



2. However, you’re single.Spongebob

It’s okay, maybe Cupid missed you or you choose to be single — not everyone needs to hook up.



3. Or you just HATE the manufactured feeling of the holiday.Shirobako

Conversely, do you really need a holiday to shower your partner with love? You have all year to do something special!



4. Here’s an idea — celebrate Anti-Valentine’s Day.Soul Eater

What’s a better way to fight the system than by doing the opposite? That’s right, we’re rebels and don’t need some “holiday” to tell us how to feel!



5. Get anti-romantic with your favorite anime.Scum's Wish

Love, sparkles, doki-doki moments — we don’t need them! Let’s watch people make terrible mistakes and revel in the rejection.



6. Treat only yourself to a fancy meal.Crockpot Pork Ramen with Curry Roasted Acorn Squash

You deserve it.



7. Spend some “private” time with some eroge.Kamihime Project R

Enjoy the thrill of eroticism (or enhance your current relationship) with some good ol’ eroge. You don’t even have to spend a dime thanks to Nutaku! We suggest Kamihime Project R or Taimamin Asagi Battle Arena for the adventurous.



8. You know what? Go on an otaku date.Otaku Date

It’s a yearly tradition that involves otaku sharing pictures of romantic dinners with their waifu or husbando. Yes, society, a dakimakura or a photo can make you feel happy!



9. Have some fun at a mixer.Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun

Many cities and college towns host free and low-cost mixer events exclusively for singles. You can have a night of fun without the commitment — or walk away with a special someone.



10. Just treat it like another day.Work

I do have to work.

I've been hooked on sci-fi, gaming, and anime ever since watching Trigun, Outlaw Star, and playing Final Fantasy. I love exploring shows and subjects that have been passed over. Pro-VR, pro-lewd, pro-indie gaming, and anti-censorship. I take about 4 major trips a year to other countries and love to visit the local fan conventions (sci-fi, anime, games, VR) when I can.
