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.

Additionally, the official website for the series is hosting Valentine's Day messages from each of the nine members.

Miyano joked about going on a date with fellow voice actor Jun Fukuyama after work. They went to a "classy" café in Tokyo's Omotesandō district.
