View Full Version : Favorite scenes of two characters seeking shelter from the rain
02-16-2008, 12:02 AM
I seem to have seen this scenario played out numerous times in various anime:
Two characters (who have certain degrees of romantic/sexual tension between them) are caught in the rain. They both seek shelter in an abandoned building from the rain.
Usually, this kind of scene is used for either or both of these two factors:
One of the more recent one I saw was in ep 9 of Blue Drop . I personally was hoping that the scene would have been more sexy :> but at least we got some good relationship development.
Which are some of your favorites of such scenes of two characters seeking shelter from the rain?

Ayato and Megumi in an early episode of RahXephon comes immediately to mind, probably because Megumi is awesome.

To confound this topic somewhat :D I offer a comic version:
School Rumble, when Tenma and Karasuma take cover in a bus stop shelter during a heavy rainstorm, and it ends up with Karasuma lending Tenma part of his "rain gear" (I use that term loosely—those who are familiar with the show know what I'm talking about :sd: ).

It's not exactly the same but close- Urusei Yatsura had an excellent episode with Lum, Ten, and the Moroboshis trapped in their house during a typhoon that had some really good, touching scenes.

The first one to come to mind is the one in the original Tenchi Muyo! OVA series with Tenchi and Aeka. It's kind of important as I think it pretty much starts up Aeka's feelings for Tenchi, when before she only though of her half-brother. Note that Yosho kind of "set up" the situation by using Funaho to make it rain. :P It was kind of cute and memorable to me, though.

I can think of two shows off the top of my head:
1) The one in episode three of Alien Nine, with Yuri and Kumi, despite that I'll never understand what the latter sees in the former...
2) There's more than one in Voices of a Distant Star, right? Sweet.

The scene that sticks most in my mind right now is from Kashimashi - Girl Meets Girl...mainly b/c I just got it in from Netflix and in the midst of watching the series.
It's the scene where Hazumu and Yasuna are out speaking in the rain and Yasuna's umbrella suddenly blows away in a gust of wind and after a pause Hazumu offers her shelter beneath her umbrella. As the subject they were talking about was Yasuna's feelings for Hazumu their nearness under Hazumu's umbrella nearly leads to a kiss.
It's a sweet, touching series so far -- about half way through.
There is also as I recall a nice rain scene in MyHiME if memory serves.
Now I'm going to have rewatch it...

I remember Elfen Lied had one with the two cousins.

Miyuki (TV). Masato & Miyuki Kajima shelter from a downpour & a landslide in a cave where they huddle up, while Miyuki Wakamatsu is stuck with Ryuuichi in a house with wet closing.
Kimagure Orange Road. Kyosuke & a cute girl who's leading him on, get caught in a shower & go dry off in a mountain chalet, not knowing theyare being searched for. Madoka finds them first... :evil:
(Best KOR scenes are ep.46 where Kyosuke & Madoka are stranded in a stalled cable car in a blizzard, & the White Lovers OVA, where they dodge an avalanche in a cave - but those are both in snow. )
The Ichigo 100% special has Junpei & Toujou :beat: sheltering & drying off in a chalet in woodland, & getting cosy while Junpei tries to remain decent & not let his hormones get the better of him.
It didn't occur to me until last night when I was watching it, but there's a great one in Haruhi, while they're on the island. There's a big rock in the middle of the cave, so there's no … looking … but there's also a point where our heroine has actually undone the catch on her brasierre, then rethinks the matter and hooks it again. I've read that Haruhi only gets modest about her body when she starts liking Kyon; that being the case, is this a sign that she's still starting to like him? Or is she maybe on the verge of going beyond just liking him? Ah! but we can only wait for Season 2!
(I know just about everybody around here likes the "Live Alive" episode and seems to ignore the island mystery episodes, but they're my favorites.)

My Neighbor Totoro?
(Sorry, couldn't resist mentioning my favorite rain scene, even if it doesn't quite fit your definition.)

The only thing that comes to mind at the moment is Romeo X Juliet (since I only saw this recently), where Juliet get's "discovered" and Romeo, in a classic move, falls on top of her by accident (while both are half-undressed). Oh yeah, lots of romantic/sexual tension there :)
