For too long, the childhood friend has been the loser in this rat race we call love! Well I implore you to suggest animes and manga where the CHILDHOOD FRIEND is VICTORIOUS!

Preferably male mc, but not requirement.

Shoujo is fine, but would like to see some from the other categories (shounen, seinen, josei)

I like variety.

I think this was the case in Cross Game.
Tamako Market also has this.

If you don't mind some spoilers:

I'm cool with spoilers. I'd rather know how it goes down and then enjoy the journey. Been burned too often by bad endings.

You can try tomako love story. (it's a movie)
It's a sequel of tomako market (If you don't wanna watch the whole series, this movie will be good enough.)

myself/yourself is another one, but


koi to senkyo to chocolate is probably the closest thing to what i think you're looking for that ive seen anyway, i cant think of anymore, its rough out there for childhood friends.

Since you watched Amagami SS, there's Seiren which will start airing tomorrow (if you didn't know yet).

There's also Photokano. (omnibus format)

I didn't think the childhood friend being the one would be so uncommon, but it is. They sadly are usually the losers.

It sucks a lot of them to witness are in an Omnibus Format where he ends up with every girl. XD

Well obviously not Koitabi since it's 3 separate couples, but I want to see more where the childhood friend wins. XD

Boku wa tomodachi ga sukunai could potentially be one
Blocked.
By the way, you should be ashamed of yourself for sexualizing anime with "panties" and etc.
If this is your interest - you need to change your hobby to porn. That one has plenty of "panties".

Kannazuki no Miko (Uh, its other categories are yuri and mecha, if that's enough variety for ya)
Harmony (Includes Yuri, and uh,
)
Special A
Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within
Yuu☆Yuu☆Hakusho (It's been a while, but I'm pretty sure this show later kinda drops the Romance and just barrels down the shoujo path)
Hundred (for the first two episodes or so, before it turns into a harem)
Be thankful for the wisdom granted to you.

By the way, when I said Megane na Kanojo has 2 of what you're looking for, I meant this request.

I remembered D.C.: Da Capo. but not as childhood friends. (The 2 main girls are: 1 cousin and 1 adopted sister. If you're interested). I didn't watch it yet so I don't know for the rest. (only the 1st episode)

You could try ´Akaneiro ni Somaru Saka´,mc eventually ends up with his childhood friend. Didn´t like the series myself though but maybe you might like it.

Your list is set to Private so there's no way of knowing if you've seen it or not. If you've seen it then
I enjoyed the characters, the music, humor and the astronomy bits.

I have my own list so I don't use the MAL one. Suggest anything because I might see something I've read/watched and would want to again.

Childhood friends are way overrated. Usually they lose because they don't do anything. Only girl who won the waiting game was in Shigatsu and it only happed because HA I'M NOT SPOILING.
She was also annoying shit. Fuck her, loli was better.

Honestly people who hide behind "trope" arguments are fucking stupid. No one gives a shit you don't like childhood friends. This is a thread requesting those couplings specifically.
