Been wondering for a while now as all the NTR I've read/watched ends badly for the guy who loses the girl. Usually the guy just watches with a dumbfounded look on his face and does nothing.

So what I'm asking is, is there any NTR out there that have the guy getting himself/his life back together and moving on? in a positive direction?

Manga or anime? Doesn't necessarily matter.

And just in case, no YAOI except for work done by Inumaru, Inaba cozy and Morata Shigetaka.

edit: forgot to mention, the only thing that comes to mind is When You Let go of my Hand by Takenoko Seijin which I have already read.

Not changing this sig until Square-Enix & Namco-Bandai collaborate to produce a "Tales of..." game (Feb 8, 2008).

Onani Master Kurosawa

He doesn't get the first girl, though he never really confessed his feelings. Before the end he gets back on his feet and gets a new girl(very end). PS its strangely enough about masterbation.

Oh and I don't even no what NTR is so I hope my suggestion helps.

An instant or an eternity. Both are the same, in the passing of an instant lies the beauty of eternity.

Very tough one there. It's because I wanted to find such things that I wrote up my thread on "a good counter to netorare". Only one other than When you Let Go My Hand that I can think of is "Okosama", a one-shot by Chunrouzan in his yet-untranslated anthology Hime Hajime. Trust me. It's not brilliant, and it's a little short, and somewhat loli, but in the end the boy does get the girl.
Even though there's not many of these, I wonder if we should really call them NTR. I despise NTR, but I love stories where the guy manages to take her back. The ultimate feel at the end is entirely different, and it's hardly uncommon for someone to just pass a story by because it's NTR. That said, what would it be called? Maybe tori-modoshi (taking back)?

NTR is netorare, a setup in which a person's spouse, lover, or even mere love interest, is taken from them. Usually, this is used to refer to setups in which a man's love is raped or seduced, and either he sees it all while somehow prevented from interfering, or he is given footage and detailed accounts after it's been done. There's only a few to my knowledge, like When You Let Go My Hand, where the story goes on and actually builds on the obvious conflict here, and finally lets the guy grow a pair and take his love back.
