35. Skip & Loafer:

Skip & Loafer

Skip and Loafer is an anime with super charming animation suitable for both fans of romance and seinen. It’s set in a typical high school, as shown in most anime with a determined heroine, Mitsumi Iwakura, who dreams of becoming a Mayor.

Mitsumi soon moves to Tokyo to take first step towards her dream she visits a top school. But, her journey was not that good as she assumed to be.

She soon realised that, Tokyo life is very different from her small hometown, and she was definitely not prepared for it. She was always used to be in tiny class with only eight students.

Other than her goals, she also values friendships and love in her life and that is what makes it really hearth warming show.

Well, the show is amazing, and despite being a newer addition to this list of best romance anime, it’s still worth a watch if you are looking for something delightful and fresh to add to your romantic watch list!

34. Re:LIFE


Re:LIFE is a romantic drama and slice of life anime directed by Satoru Kosaka and written by Michiko Yokote and Kazuho Hyōdō.

The story is about Arata Kaizaki, who is 27 years old and quit his job after three months. His life has been very difficult since then. He feels lonely and has no support or friends to share his problems with.

But one day, he encounters a man named Ryo Yoake who tries to offer him a chance to join a program called ReLife. The program will make him look like a high-school boy, and he has to attend a high-school for a year, and plus they will support him financially.

The story itself is very unique, and most people already know about this anime because its manhua is super-popular. But as we see the anime, within the romantic genre, is totally underrated.

Still, it’s super-fun to watch, and it has done a pretty good job so much so that in the end it will definitely make you cry.

33. Given:


The story of our next romantic anime, Given, starts with a character named Mafuyu, a quiet high school student who carries a guitar but can’t play it (sounds normal).

He seems to be dealing with something troubling but prefers to hide his true feelings (just like us).

But soon, he meets Uenoyama, a schoolmate who is totally a music freak. So, of course, he tries to help Mafuyu fix his guitar, and soon, they become friends. As their friendship grows, Uenoyama discovers Mafuyu’s hidden dark past!

At first glance, Given seems like a simple anime story about guys forming a band. But if you look closer, you will discover a deeper, more personal story in the shadow of heartwarming music.

This BL (Boys’ Love) anime will slowly take you on a touching and emotional journey. When it reaches its end, it almost becomes memorable.

If you are a fan of the BL genre, I would personally recommend you watch the show because it’s one of the masterpieces in the romance genre.

32. Scum’s Wish:

Scum’s Wish

Next up in our list of best romance anime is Scum’s Wish. Most people have already watched it. Still, if you haven’t, you can go for it!

The main story of Scum’s Wish is about Mugi and Hanabi, who are in love with different teachers at their high school. Hanabi wishes that her childhood friend and neighbor, who is now her homeroom teacher, falls for her, while Mugi wants his former tutor, who is now his teacher, to notice him as a lover.

But when you chase after love, it gets harder to get, and that’s what happens because they begin to see their crushes getting closer.

Soon after that, Mugi and Hanabi start supporting each other in their mission to get love from their crushes. They make a promise to pretend to be in love with each other until one of them wins over their crush.

This show seems to be a breath of fresh air when it comes to high-school romance anime. The story was so complex that it made me hate characters at some point, but the ending was satisfying, so I won’t call it all that bad. Scum’s wish is a peak romance anime filled with drama.

All the characters are unique in their own way, with beautiful backstories, and I would highly recommend this show to mature audiences because of its explicit scenes.

31. Nisekoi:


Just blend your typical Romeo and Juliet story and spice it up with hilarious jokes, you will get one epic show, Nisekoi. The anime is full of unusual scenes but is fun with surprises, jokes, and some of the most memorable characters you’ve ever seen in the romance genre.

The story is about Raku, a boy from a mafia family, who is forced to pretend to be in a relationship with Chitoge, a girl from a rival gang, to maintain peace and harmony in their city. But would it last for long? For that, you have to watch the show!

Nisekoi is one of my favorite romantic comedies, and it never fails to hit the spot. The comedy scenes were so good that they made me laugh my heart out! But don’t worry if you are looking to satisfy your craving for watching romance, it sure does that as well!

30. Insomniacs After School:

Insomniacs After School

Insomniacs After School could very well be the latest addition to our list of best romance anime. Well, you can’t complain because the story and animation were just too good.

The plot is about two young high school students, Ganta Nakami and Isaki Magari. They both have trouble sleeping, and to solve this problem, they both decided to revive their school’s long shut down astronomy club to take naps. Yes, you read that right.

As they spend so much time together while napping and understanding each other’s problems, they soon develop feelings for each other, which is really cute.

I personally like the story; it was really sweet and simple. It definitely hits the spot. The anime is all about special feelings and when you fall in love for the first time, it definitely makes you remember your first love.

29. My Dress Up Darling:

My Dress Up Darling

My Dress-Up Darling is undoubtedly one of the most popular and beloved romantic anime. It was the first romance anime show that introduced cosplay as a subculture and theme of the anime (it was my first time watching a show based on cosplay).

The main plot of the anime revolves around Wakana Gojo, a hardworking dandere enthusiast. He loves to craft Hina dolls but is scared of sharing his hobby just to save himself from getting hated or teased about his unique work.

But soon, the story takes a drastic turn when he meets Marin Kitagawa, the school’s most popular girl, who seems to be amazed by Wakana’s craft skills.

Well, I personally loved the bright and top-notch animation as it was very pleasing to watch. Even though not much progress is seen between our main leads in the romantic field, I have high hopes for its second season to showcase some cozy romantic moments to us.

28. Bloom Into You:

Bloom Into You

Bloom Into You is not a full-fledged show but it’s a 2018 TV mini-series that captures the essence of romantic relationships among young women (Yuri).

This anime shows the journey of two high school students, Touko Nanami and Yuu Koito, and surprisingly, they both have rejected romantic proposals in their past.

Despite this, the story takes an intriguing turn when Touko confesses her feelings to Yuu, due to which Yuu seems confused and uncertain about her own true feelings and desires towards Touko.

I have totally fallen in love with this anime. Its pure innocence, sweetness, and charm make me feel really wholesome and put a smile on my face instantly.

If you want to watch something really wholesome and cute, this romantic series should be a must on your watchlist.

27. Ancient Magus Bride:

Ancient Magus Bride

The Ancient Magus’ Bride is considered to be a dark fantasy genre anime, so why is it on our list? Well, unlike other anime capturing most of the darker themes at the start, it also weaves elements of romance into its narrative later on.

The story follows a girl named Chise Hatori, who has a tragic past as an orphan and was shunned for her ability to perceive supernatural entities.

Because of this, she ultimately makes a harsh decision to auction herself, where she finally meets her destiny, Elias Ainsworth.

As for a romantic genre anime, the show was pretty slow to reach that aspect, but still, the narrative was pretty unique. For fantasy lovers, the anime is like a cherry on the cake with a mix of both fantasy and the real world.

As for characters, especially Chise, she was really well-written in my opinion. But on the other side, Elias Ainsworth seems to have a complex personality, and you can’t always tell if he’s good or not.

26. The Rose of Versailles:

The Rose of Versailles

The story of The Rose of Versailles is classic and is a definite must watch for fans who are into period romances. It is set in a period of social divisions and growing insecurity among the middle-class people. To solve the issue, the Austrian Empire sends Princess Marie Antoinette to France to marry Crown Prince Louis XVI.

This marriage was set up for political purposes, just to make the alliance between the two nations stronger and wealthier.

However, the upcoming queen is not ready to accept her destiny and doesn’t want to marry a prince from France.

Some might say the set work is a bit old-fashioned, but still, its old-fashioned art style makes it unique and really eye-pleasing. If you like sweet and simple romantic novels, this story will really suit your taste.

25. Plastic Memories:

Plastic Memories

The story of Plastic Memories revolves around a high school graduate named Tsukasa, who was lucky enough to land a job in SAI Corp, or you can call it the “Sion Artificial Intelligence Corporation.”

They are popularly known to manufacture androids called “Giftia,” which are basically robots that look like perfect humans or replicas, but the only drawback of these human-like robots is that they can only live for 9 years.

Later on, Tsukasa gets paired with one of the Giftia named Isla for a specialized job, but he somehow falls in love with Isla. The problem for his romantic story is that Isla’s life as a Giftia is nearly over.

Any romance he can hope for now is just to spend the remaining quality time with her.

The end of the season made me cry, and I bet you won’t be able to hide your tears while watching this show. For me, this is one of the best romance anime I’ve ever come across, as the tears from my eyes and sorrow in my heart were genuine.

24. Kono Oto Tomare:

Kono Oto Tomare

Kono Oto Tomare is a beautiful romance and slice of life genre anime that also includes a theme for music enthusiasts.

The story of Kono Oto Tomare revolves around Chika, a delinquent, wishing to join the Tokise High School Koto Club to understand the last words of his late grandfather. Within its story, the series light-heartedly explores the theme of blossoming romance between Chika and Hozuki.

I would like to say that this anime isn’t all about romance. Despite some sweet moments, which make it really special and wholesome to watch, the best part of the show is how the characters grow and connect with each other.

It can become a great choice for Slice of Life and high school romance anime fans, but anyone can enjoy it.

23. Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions:

Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions

Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions is definitely regarded as one of the best romance anime by a good chunk of romance buffs. The show is all about the challenges of growing up and learning to embrace people who seem a bit different and unique.

The story revolves around a high school boy named Yūta who’s trying hard to forget about his ambiguous fantasies from his past life. He soon meets a girl named Rikka, who also has a wild imagination like him.

The series was all about a group of friends who have something like common diseases (not exactly a diseases) called chunibyo. It is a condition when they think they have superpowers in a world that not even exist in real. They do alot of strange things that make their friends worried for them.

The show nicely portrays the challenges of growing up, and then you get the gist of a beautifully crafted romance story with a unique twist.

22. My Little Monster:

My Little Monster

The anime revolves around Shizuku Mizutani, a smart girl who is kind of introverted and has no friends, and Haru Yoshida, known to be a delinquent and a troublemaker.

Well, our heroine of the show, Shizuku used to see life in a very dual way and always tries to remain shut in, but soon everything starts to change when she finally meets super cool and sir headed boy, Haru.

She was been asked to give some papers to Haru because he was going to get suspended from school. And that first conservation between them changes everything in the series and I mean it. Soon enough they become couples and tries to understand each other emotions.

Well, They are very unusual pair, and most amazing part of this unusual couple is that, they both started to discover life beyond their loneliness and encounter new things while been together.

The main focus of the story is on two very different people who unexpectedly become friends and soon get into a relationship.

At the start, I really enjoyed the show a lot, but the only complaint I have is that it gets a little slow-paced and it gets quite boring. But it’s still worth giving a watch for every romantic series lover.

21. Hana Yori Dango:

Hana Yori Dango

Hana Yori Dango, also popularly known as Boys Over Flowers, is yet another romance anime that revolves around Tsukushi Makino, a girl from a middle-class background attending the elite Eitoku Academy on a scholarship.

There are elite group of boys within the school known as F4, represented as the four most popular, powerful, and rich boys. And soon, Makino Tsukushi stands up against this elite group boy for her friend. But later fell in love with one of boy from elite group name, Rui Hanazawa.

It’s that classic romance story where a poor girl falls in love with a wealthy boy.

This romance anime is a classic and one of the best if you can handle the drama that accompanies the sweetness. The show is a must-watch for all fans who love to watch 90’s romantic anime.

20. Ao Haru Ride:

Ao Haru Ride

Ao Haru Ride is a turbulent yet heartwarming tale about Futaba, a high school student who tries to change her appearance to fit in a group.

She has faced a lot of rejection from her junior high female friends for being super cute, and on top of that, she struggled to convey her feelings to her only crush, Tanaka-kun, the only boy she ever fell in love with.

This anime is fully dedicated to young romance and is one of the best romantic anime of its era and still holds its position as one of the best in the romantic genre, albeit with the drama which is present in the series.

If you have missed this show as a shoujo lover, just go and watch it because you will regret it later if you haven’t. It’s an absolute masterpiece!

19. SNAFU:


My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU is one of the most influential shows in the romantic genre. I think romance takes a back seat when it comes to the show because the main focus of the show is to portray the struggles of modern Japanese teenagers in their day-to-day lives.

The story focuses on an antisocial, or introverted, high school student named Hikigaya Hachiman who has no friends or girlfriend.

At the start, you will see him getting rejected by each and every girl he proposes to. But soon, his life starts changing when he is forced to join the school’s service club and gets to meet other main characters of the show.

The show nicely conveys the problems of antisocial people, but not only that, the hint of romance in the show makes it a worthwhile watch for anime lovers out there.

18. Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai:

Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai

Next comes another show which I would say is one of the best and a must-watch romance anime, and it’s none other than Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai. I assume there might be only a few who haven’t watched this show because of its super-hit characters, but still, if you haven’t watched it, give it a try.

The story of the anime revolves around Sakuta, a high school student who meets a girl wearing a bunny costume (it’s one of the best bunny costumes I ever saw in my life). And the most amazing part of this is that she remains invisible to everyone else.

As the story progresses, we get to know that Sakuta possesses a unique ability to identify and help girls affected by Adolescence Syndrome, a kind of condition or disease that is developed when someone gets triggered by their inner insecurities.

As for the romance factor, the show did a pretty good job. The characters are so good, and their personalities are really lovable, at least for me.

17. Kamisama Kiss:

Kamisama Kiss

Kamisama Kiss is an absolute masterpiece in the realm of romance anime. The show is magnificent; it was the first show for me that merged the fantasy world into romance in the best way possible and it holds a special place in the hearts of fans of both romance stories and supernatural themes.

The show revolves around the heroine of the show, Nanami, an ordinary girl who unexpectedly gets chosen to take care of a shrine as a shrine god.

The best part of the show was in order to establish a connection with Tomoe, one of the shrine’s loyal familiars, they must enter into a mystical contract through a kiss, and from here, the romantic story between a Kamisama (god) and a shrine familiar begins.

16. Your Lie In April:

Your Lie In April

The story of “Your Lie In April” follows the journey of Kousei Arima, a 14-year-old piano prodigy who sadly loses his ability to even hear his own music after his mother passes away.

But soon his life starts to change when he meets a beautiful girl named Kaori, a spirited multi-instrumentalist. With Kaori’s support and guidance, Kousei gains confidence in his abilities and ultimately gets better in understanding his music.

It’s one of the most emotional shows I ever saw. I would say it’s hella depressing. If you are thinking of watching this show, be ready to cry your heart out because your tears won’t stop, even though you want them to, after watching the show.

15. Wotakoi:


The story of “Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku” explores the theme of the pros and cons of dating while embracing life as an otaku, a person who has a deep passion for anime and gaming. The plot starts within a workplace setting, focusing on characters who are well beyond their high school years.

The story is about, Narumi Momose, who is a 26-year-old women, is a biggest fan of yaoi and wants to appear as a perfect, beautiful lady in her new job (she is most relatable character in anime universe). But her plans for being perfect gets ruined when she meets Hirotaka Nifuji, her former classmate from middle school who is a hardcore gamer and knows about her secrets.

Well, this was the first show that has a workplace setting for such a theme of romance and comedy.

I mean, most of the show deals with quite serious topics as expected from mature people, but this show made me realize that even grown-ups have the same hobbies as us and they do enjoy life like us.

14. From Me To You:

From Me To You

Kimi ni Todoke is considered to be one of the best romance anime series and is appreciated for its heartwarming stories and relatable characters.

The story of “From Me To You” revolves around Sawako Kuronuma, a super shy and introverted high school girl, who often gets isolated or neglected by others. But soon, her life takes a drastic turn when Shouta Kazehaya, a super popular boy in school, starts to show interest in her in a good way.

Their growing bond and friendship help Sawako break free from her introverted self and discover self-acceptance.

The show was really fun to watch, and especially the character development between both of our main leads was incredible to watch.

13. Horimiya:


Horimiya is one of the most popular romantic shows on our list. Even though it has been recently released, it quickly captured the hearts of many fans with relatable characters and a simple and sweet romantic story.

The story explores the lives of high school students named Hori and Miyamura, whose public and private personas are totally opposite.

Hori, our heroine seems to be perfect in everything and super popular at school but there is hidden side of her, where she takes care of her little brother at home because her parents are busy enough and she all alone to take care of herself and her only brother.

She is all in all different at home. And then comes our super cool hero Miyamura, who is shy and not so popular at school. But soon enough, they will realise each other’s real selves and fall in love with it.

We often hide our true personality in front of people with a mask, and this lovely story of Hori and Miyamura explains it so well that you can never take your eyes off while watching it.

The romantic and sweet moments between our lovely couple Hori and Miyamura are so iconic that you will fall in love with both the characters.

12. Clannad:


If you think that Plastic Memories and Your Lie in April were not depressing enough for you, then you should definitely check out Clannad.

The story of “Clannad” revolves around a character named Tomoya Okazaki, a young boy who thinks life is damn boring.

But soon his thoughts change as everything changes in his life when he crosses paths with Nagisa Furukawa, a girl with a dream to revive the school’s drama club. Initially, Tomoya rejects her offers to join but gradually decides to help Nagisa, and during the process, he finds his joy and purpose in life.

As expected of an epic show, it has the best soundtrack of all time, well-written characters, and a realistic plot that will make you relate to the characters’ sorrow and joy.

11. Ouran HighSchool Host Club:

Ouran HighSchool Host Club

Not in the mood for sad romantic series? Are you looking for a show that’s fun to watch and combines romance? Then Ouran HighSchool Host Club is a great option for you.

The story of Ouran HighSchool Host Club revolves around Haruhi Fujioka, who finds herself in a situation where she must repay a debt by joining her school’s Host Club. To do so, she has to disguise herself as a boy.

This isn’t a significant issue for her, as her short hair, casual attire, and ambiguous appearance lead the Host Club members to mistake her for a boy.

However, they soon discover her true gender and realize she has a natural talent for acting like a guy and handling female clients.

I personally have watched this show more than five times and might watch it again in the future. It’s incredibly hilarious and entertaining to watch, even though the romance aspect of the show is somewhat lacking.

Nevertheless, it’s an excellent series to watch, especially if you’re craving romance with super fun characters.

10. Lovely Complex:

Lovely Complex

Lovely Complex is one of the best romance anime shows I’ve ever discovered. It’s in my top three romantic shows because of its relatable characters and super fun dialogues.

Lovely Complex follows the story of Risa Koizumi and Atsushi Otani, two high school freshmen who stand out because of their height difference.

At the beginning, they have countless clashes and fights, but things change when Risa realizes that she’s in love with Otani. Sooner than we know, otani confesses his true feelings to her on her birthday by sharing a kiss with Risa. And I tell you, don’t miss this scene because it’s one of iconic moment, which you never want to miss, if really crave for some good romantic and wholesome scenes.

The show is an emotional rollercoaster. At times, you’ll be laughing your heart out, and at other times, you’ll find yourself in tears for Risa. I cried a lot for Risa. The show is a must-watch if you’re seriously craving some good romantic shows.

8. Maison Ikkoku:

Maison Ikkoku

Maison Ikkoku is an iconic romance anime from the yesteryears, that still continues to be a classic. It combines comedy and poignant moments quite well and delivers and memorable experience. The story revolves around Yusaku, a broke student, and Kyoko, a beautiful young lady who takes care of the house and recently lost her husband.

The story starts in a year 1980 introducing a college student named Godai, who lives in a small apartment and wants to move out. When Kyoko Otonashi becomes the manager of the building, and when Godai first meet her, he falls in love with her charming personality. But unfortunately he is too scared to confess his true feelings.

It’s a great show with a lot of emotions. What I personally enjoyed was that it wasn’t too lengthy to watch, the story was fast-paced, the character designs were classy and looked really good, and the music was catchy.

Plus, you’ll always find yourself rooting for the main characters to get together because they make such a cute couple.

7. Yuri on Ice:

Yuri on Ice

Yuri!!! on Ice is a beloved BL (Boys’ Love) anime series that made waves by depicting a same-sex relationship in a brilliant way.

The story is about Yuri Katsuki, who wants to return to figure skating and also discovers his true feelings for his coach, Victor Nikiforov.

It also protrays, the struggle and anxiety faced by Yuri Katsuki, after losing the Grand Prix Finale competition. Yuri after facing a depression returns his home to Kyushu to bring his life to the track. And he is torn between retiring and continuing to ice skate.

The show is a pure masterpiece and one of the best shows produced by the super-popular studio MAPPA. It delivers romance in a way that melts the heart, and you can genuinely feel the vibe of the show.

Undoubtedly, it’s one of my favorite romantic shows. And, of course, if you’re okay with BL romance, don’t miss out on this one; be sure to watch it.

6. Kaguya Sama Love is War:

Kaguya Sama Love is War

One of the most popular new-generation romantic comedies in anime is Kaguya-sama: Love is War by the great illustrator Aka Akasaka.

It’s one of the best romantic series that revolves around two high schoolers deeply in love but stubbornly hiding their true feelings from each other, each trying to prove their dominance.

Miyuki Shirogane, the head of the council, and Kaguya Shinomiya, the vice president, of the elite school are really in love with each other. But as mentioned they are too prideful to even confess their true feelings for each other.

So, they try their absolute best to make the other person admit they are feeling. And this silly games between our two main protagonist leads to a situation, where they try to outsmart each other but often end up confusing themselves and making situation funnier at the same time.

Just as Naruto and One Piece are considered legendary shows in the Shounen genre, Kaguya Sama Love is War is considered one of the most realistic and exceptional romantic shows ever released.

5. Nana:


For those who are bored with teenage romance stories, here’s something for mature audiences to explore. Nana is among the top romantic shows that delve into real-life problems, including romantic love, self-love, and friendship.

It’s one of the first anime series that delves deep into showing the challenges faced by characters as they must choose between their passion and true love.

This classic show delves into the complexities of relationships and how they can negatively impact someone’s personal life, even when the love is genuine.

The show tackles some real-time complex issues. So, I think it’s not suitable for every audience, especially if you’re not into watching mature romance themes, as it may be confusing.

However, for those who love to explore real-life themes, this romantic show is a must-watch.

4. Ore Monogatari:

Ore Monogatari

The story of Ore Monogatari revolves around Takeo Gouda, a high school student with a big heart, but his massive body size often becomes a hurdle in his romantic life as most girls get scared by his appearance.

One of saddening part in the series was when most of girls Gouda likes falls in love with his best friend, Makoto Sunakawa, who is drop dead charming and good-looking.

However, his life changes when he helps a very sweet and kind girl named Rinko from a pervert on a train, and he falls in love with her. This is what we call love at first sight!

The show is a perfect example that appearance can never be a hindrance if you love someone wholeheartedly and nurture your true feelings for them.

3. Fruits Basket:

Fruits Basket

Fruits Basket is one of the most beloved titles in the shojo genre. It follows the story of Tohru Honda, a sweet and cheerful heroine who wants to help the Sohma family.

She soon realised that, 13 members of the Sohma family are been possessed by the animals of the Chinese zodiac and are cursed to turn into their animal forms whenever they get weak, too much stressed, or when they come contact with someone of opposite gender.

The show is an absolute masterpiece and a must-watch if you haven’t seen it yet.

“Fruits Basket” was originally released in 2001, and I personally feel more connected to the original version rather than the reboot released in 2019.

But it’s a matter of personal choice. Both versions are great, and you can watch either or both; it’s entirely up to you.

2. Maid Sama:

Maid Sama

Finally, here comes the second best romance anime in our list, and how could we forget to include Maid Sama? This show doesn’t need an introduction, thanks to Takumi Usui, who is considered one of the best husbando (husband material) of all time in the anime world.

The story portrays a hot-headed heroine, Misaki Ayuzawa, who is strong and super protective of her female companions. But her personality changes whenever she encounters Takumi Usui. Why, you ask? Because he always flirts with her and teases her in a very romantic way.

The show is hilarious from start to finish. I really enjoyed the cute clashes between our heroine and Usui. I bet you can never get bored of it, even if you watch it for the tenth time.

Undoubtedly, it’s an iconic show in the shoujo genre and it deserves the second place on our list of must-watch romantic anime.

1. Toradora:


Last but not least, we have one of my all-time favorite romantic shows, Toradora. The story revolves around a mismatched pair who, after getting rejected by their best friends, unexpectedly discover love by spending quality time with each other. Taiga, our heroine often called the palm-top tiger, is a classic example of a tsundere persona.

In the initial episodes, you will witness comprehensive introductions of each character in the show. But as the story progresses, you’ll gradually discover more about each character. A deep affection develops between the characters, leading to conflicts, which they eventually resolve.

Even though the show portrays teenage love and common love triangle themes in the romance genre, there’s something that feels realistic and mature about their romance. This is what makes it one of the best romantic shows to watch for me, and I believe you’ll feel the same way.

Without a doubt, Toradora is the best romance anime for me in my heart!


We’ve compiled a list of the best romance anime for you, and we’ve done our best to select iconic shows that you shouldn’t miss. So, don’t hesitate to watch these romance shows. Also, please let us know your favorite one. Lastly, thanks for reading, and happy watching!
