* ''Manga/IWish''
** K is first ''told'' by Wye that he loves Lyu-Jin, because he's [[LookALikeLovers assimilating]] to her, but K brushes it off. A bit later, Lyu-Jin snaps at K for not visiting her while she was stuck in bed with a bad cold and K reiterates that ''he'' was sick at the time, ''too''... and realizes that he is assimilating to her.
** Lyu-Jin takes a bit longer. On her birthday, she has a fight with K and meets up with him later. When she's about to ask the wish he suggested to her, he interrupts her and asks if she is hungry and wants to eat. In tears, Lyu-Jin realizes that K loves her and that she feels the same.
** The chapters depicting Seven's past with Lyu-Ui as his master show that Seven didn't realize he actually loved [[spoiler:Lyu-Ui]] until said person has died and, due to belonging to an alien race, Seven's heart breaks.

* The ''Manga/OuranHighSchoolHostClub'' manga has this--for several characters. First is [[spoiler: Kaoru]], who realizes he has feelings for Haruhi. Then [[spoiler: Hikaru]] finally sees that he's in love with Haruhi after [[spoiler: Kaoru explains that's why he felt so jealous when Haruhi spoke so kindly about Tamaki]]. Haruhi takes a while longer to finally realize she's in love with [[spoiler: Tamaki]], at first thinking her sudden blushing and being flustered around him were due to a cold. Finally, after over 60 chapters, Tamaki has the revelation that he doesn't love Haruhi as a "father", but that he's actually IN love with her, as a man.

* [[Literature/AnneOfGreenGables Anne Shirley]] has a jarring love epiphany when her longtime friend and rejected love interest, Gilbert Blythe, is dying from typhoid fever. The description in the book ("Anne of the Island") is a borderline TearJerker:
-->There is a book of Revelation in every one's life, as there is in the Bible. Anne read hers that bitter night, as she kept her agonized vigil through the hours of storm and darkness. She loved Gilbert -- had always loved him! She knew that now. She knew that she could no more cast him out of her life without agony than she could have cut off her right hand and cast it from her. And the knowledge had come too late -- too late even for the bitter solace of being with him at the last. If she had not been so blind -- so foolish -- she would have had the right to go to him now. But he would never know that she loved him -- he would go away from this life thinking that she did not care. Oh, the black years of emptiness stretching before her! She could not live through them -- she could not! She cowered down by her window and wished, for the first time in her gay young life, that she could die, too. If Gilbert went away from her, without one word or sign or message, she could not live. Nothing was of any value without him. She belonged to him and he to her. In her hour of supreme agony she had no doubt of that. [[DerailingLoveInterests He did not love Christine Stuart -- never had loved Christine Stuart.]] Oh, what a fool she had been not to realize what the bond was that had held her to Gilbert -- to think that the flattered fancy she had felt for [[DerailingLoveInterests Roy Gardner]] had been love. And now she must pay for her folly as for a crime.
** There is also a non-romantic instance for Marilla in "AnneOfGreenGables", when she sees Anne being carried home by Mr. Barry after breaking her ankle, not knowing that Anne's injury was minor.
--> At that moment Marilla had a revelation. In the sudden stab of fear that pierced her very heart she realized what Anne had come to mean to her. She would have admitted that she liked Anne--nay, that she was very fond of Anne. But now she knew as she hurried wildly down the slope that Anne was dearer to her than anything else on earth.
