Added DiffLines:

* In ''Manga/OreMonogatari'', Takeo and Yamato get together very early on (in the third episode of the anime), subverting the usual trend of pandering the ship. Instead, the series focuses on how their romantic relationship blooms.

Most commonly broadcasted with a FirstKiss, but every once in a while you find a more… drastic variant (GladToBeAliveSex comes to mind). Compare RelationshipReveal--a moment where an implied but existing couple becomes canon. A move from casual to serious can involve IGotYouADrawer. Also compare TheyDo--the point past which the RomanceArc is concluded and the relationship becomes a constant that feeds ''other'' plot threads. Contrast DerailingLoveInterests-- where a Relationship Downgrade happens to a RomanticFalseLead so an OfficialCouple can be hooked up. Though they often coincide (e.g. in a LastMinuteHookup) the two are far from synonymous; a RelationshipUpgrade can be the beginning of hardships, trials and tribulations that the relationship may not survive at all.

* While Candace and Jeremy from ''WesternAnimation/PhineasAndFerb'' were an OfficialCouple from the get-go, they don't refer to each other as boyfriend and girlfriend (and share their FirstKiss) until the episode, "Summer Belongs to You." (Although the timing of their RelationshipUpgrade is made more complicated by the fact that the episodes don't air in the same order they take place. In some episodes, Candace is still only crushing on Jeremy; in some episodes, they are de facto dating; and in some episodes they are "officially" boyfriend and girlfriend.) Season 3 starts with them being unquestionably canon though, as Candace tries to find out what Jeremy likes about her.

* Mallow and Shallot one of Clover's friends and the main characters of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Happy_Happy_Clover ''Happy Happy Clover'']] Manga series by Tatsuyama Sayuri. Are mostly very quiet around each other when Kale and Clover are around. But when Clover and Kale aren't around, Shallot get's extremely shy around Mallow since he has a secret crush on her. His first attempt to let Mallow know about this is when Shallot asked Clover to deliver a letter to Mallow telling her about this. Clover does but Kale's baby brothers learns about this and begins spreading it around the entire forest including Mallow. In the end, they all get confuse but Clover's parents understand whats actually going on with them. In the final volume, Shallot hurts himself and Mallow (Now a nurse) learns that Shallot likes her which results in Mallow giving him tons of hugs ever since. In the epilogue, they are happily married and have kids of their own.
