posted on by Egan Loo

In Japan, it's customary for women to give chocolates to men on Valentine's Day, and men return the favor on White Day (March 14). Below are some images that anime and manga fans — both women and men — across Japan and overseas have posted to celebrate Valentine's Day.

Fate/stay night Cafe

The ufotable Café is holding a Valentine's Day event from February 14 to February 19 with limited-time chocolate sweets, chocolate drinks, and original illustration cards for diners.
