Sick Episodes: Anime Edition

One trope common besides the beach episodes, and hot spring trips. One thing that gets even the most overpowered main character if they are rained on. The common cold. This list can include other things like random bouts anemia, and conveniently timed illnesses. Usually used to further romantic plots to develop a deeper bond with said love interest. This trope is mostly spotted in romance stories for this reason, but can also be used to show vulnerable side of a character we never see. This crops up time and time again. Rain and cold weather is the greatest foe in these universes. Sick episodes have become a common staple in a lot of anime's for this reason. This list does not include things like terminal illness, or things of that nature.
