Follow TV Tropes
Well, just two faces and a caption. If you're not familiar with the manga depicted, there's no way to tell the guy is an Unlucky Everydude, and the image shows nothing magical about the girlfriend, where she's supposed to be supernatural. It's a pretty pic but we should pull it for being entirely unillustrative.
A possible alternative, or a crop of the couple on the left◊.
The current may not be an exact fit to the trope but I think their poses and Belldandy's outfit are fairly clearly indicative. Not feeling 1.2 at all; 1.1 could work but I prefer the current pending other ideas.
I actually prefer the current as well. He has a generic appearance, she's floating, and there appears to be some sort of magic wind, so I fail to see how it's JAFAAC.

I prefer the current.
Depicting it like that is standard romance tropes, not anything involving magical girls.
I'm saying that she looks 'magical' and he looks 'generic' enough to me to fit the trope.
A quality upgrade wouldn't hurt.
I don't know, I actually prefer the other version. The colours of that one looks too saturated.
That looks better to me.
Bludgeoning Angel Dokurochan
Stronger on the "magical", weaker on the "girlfriend" to me.
Not sure if it's clearer than the current or not, but I've seen the halo used too many times to denote "mischievous character trying to trick someone". If she had visible wings, sure.
I prefer 10 to current. While the girlfriend part is not that obvious, she is obviously magical, and we get to know more of the guy's personality too, which gets some emphasis in the trope description too.

10 is a definite improvement.
Another alternative◊ from Inu Kami.
Similar in set up to P.O.V. Boy, Poster Girl...
That, and it has the same problem as 10, in that the relationship angle isnít as clearly implied as it is in the current.

How well does it match the trope?
