March 14 is not just Pi Day. In East Asia, today marks White Day, a day that men repay gifts given to them by women on Valentine’s Day. Sometimes 3D men are not the only ones to receive chocolate on February’s day of love, so it makes sense that 2D men also find ways to mark White Day.
Here are some White Day messages from the world of anime, video games, and Japanese voice actors.
