21. Bakemonogatari (2009) Review and Rating [ 7.1 / 10 ]
It is amusing to watch Bakemonogatari. As are the characters in this story. It’s quite hilarious and wonderful to watch.
A word of advice: don’t take this too seriously before watching. Animes like this aren’t meant to be taken seriously or for romantic drama. The story revolves around Koyomi Aragi. Her superhuman abilities, such as seeing in the dark and fast healing, make her the most powerful warrior ever.
After being attacked by a vampire, this man gained vampiric powers that he had never used before. During his days as a vampire, he had many abilities, but now he is no longer one, because Therese Oshino helped him.
Argi is rather unorganized in his studies and has a carefree nature. He is, however, good at mathematics. The generosity of Arighi was always evident, and he was always ready to sacrifice to help others. During the class, he caught his classmate Hitagi Senjougahara who was falling down the stairs.
Hitagi becomes apparent to Aragi. Seeing that something supernatural might be happening, he offers to help. Aragi provides assistance to others suffering from supernatural problems as the series progresses.
20. The Familiar of Zero Review and Rating [ 7.2 / 10 ]
The Familiar of Zero basically released in 2008. The Familiar of Zero is a comedy and a fantasy anime. Main girl character of our Anime is Louise who is a middle-high school second-year student. Louise is terrible at casting the magic, and all students think that she can do nothing.
One day in school everybody has to choose their magical pet which will be with them for their whole life. On that day, other students cast spells, and they got the magical pets, but when Louise cast the spell, a boy came out of nowhere.
The boy who came from the magic spell is the hero of Anime named Saito Hiraga. And then their magical romance story began with the many twisted turns. For that go and watch Anime called The Familiar of Zero.
19. Nijiiro Days (Rainbow Days) Review and Rating [ 7.5 / 10 ]
Nijiiro Days based on the four high school boys from the same class. They haven’t joined any club and are just enjoying life.
All boys have different love stories, and you will love all stories. Every boy has a different character style. This anime is full of comedy and romance.
18. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun (My Little Monster) Review and Rating [ 7.5 / 10 ]
Tonari no Kaibutsu-Kun is the unforgettable love story of the girl who falls in love who makes trouble again and again. Mizutani Shizuku is a decent girl who stays away from the situation and falls for the boy named Yoshida Haru.
Love and friendship is the thing Mizutani Shizuku and Yoshida Haru wanted in their life. Shizuku Mizutani, a girl who is only interested in studying, finds trouble in a new romance. A boy named Haru Yoshida is bleeding on the first day and does not come to school.
Shizuku Mizutani is just curious about him. Shizuku Mizutani is a self-sufficient girl who only cares about getting the best grades in school. As Yoshida Haru is getting suspended for his actions in the school on the first day of school.
Our story’s boy and girl are friendless and arrogant, but finally, they fall in love with each other. Tonari no Kaibutsu-Kun is called my little monster in the English. Although they met in unusual circumstances, their confrontation led to an unimaginable start.
What you feel will change the love of your life soon! This anime entertainment will be romantic, fun and spectacular. That’s is the reason why this series has become so popular among the public.
17. Yamada-kun and the Seven Witches Review and Rating [ 7.6 / 10 ]
In school, some students get some supernatural powers. In a history written like this, seven girls will be given a superior supernatural power. But the mystery is that our main protagonist of the anime also has the hidden supernatural power. He is hiding this supernatural power from the others.
Seven witches have different powers with her like body-switching, body control, telepathy, seeing the future, etc. All episodes of the Yamada-Kun and the Seven Witches are full of comedy and romance. These are different types of comedy anime.
16. Nisekoi (false love) Review and Rating [ 7.7 / 10 ]
Nisekoi is the comedy and romance category anime. The story started with the small flashback where we can see the little boy and girl promised to marry each other, and they have locks and keys.
They decide when they meet in the future, they unlock the lock with the key. Raku Ichijou is the main male character of Nisekoi, the son of japan’s mafia. Then entry happens of our main female character of the Nisekoi named Chitoge Kirisaki.
She just transferred to Raku’s high school class. There are so much surprise elements in the Anime, for that, I suggest you watch the anime series.
15. Ao Haru Ride (Blue Spring Ride) Review and Rating [ 7.8 / 10 ]
When there is a talk about a romance anime, you will probably see the Ao Haru Ride there because it is a romance anime. The anime is one of the most favourite anime of the girls. Futaba Yoshioka is the main female character of the Ao Haru Ride.
Futaba Yoshioka is the perfect romance anime character I have seen. The male character of the Ao Haru Ride is named Ko Tanaka. Ko Tanaka and Futaba Yoshioka met and started talking to each other when they were in the sixth standard. One day, they planned to go out somewhere.
But for some reason, Ko Tanaka did not meet the fatuba. After summer fatuba attend the school, she did not find the Ko Tanaka in school. After some years they met again in high school. But now ko does not want to talk to the fatuba.
Why didn’t ko was not come to meet fatuba? Why did they meet in high school together? For that answer, you should go and watch the Ao Haru Ride series. I do not want to give spoilers here. This series has good animation and the character design, don’t miss it.
14. Tada Never falls in Love Review and Rating [ 7.8 / 10 ]
Mitsuyoshi Tada is the main character of the Tada Never falls in Love anime. Mitsuyoshi Tada does not know anything about love, and he loves photography.
Photography is the passion of the Mitsuyoshi Tada. One day he is doing the cherry blossom’s photography. He encounters a girl named Teresa Wagner, and the main story starts here.
After that Teresa Wagner transferred to Tada’s school. Then the story became fascinating to watch, how they talk to each other, how they know about love and feelings for each other.
13. Kokoro Connect Review and Rating [ 7.8 / 10 ]
Kokoro Connect is a romantic slice of the life anime series. Kokoro Connect is the super blend of the slice of life and the supernatural to enjoy it a lot. Talking about the anime plot, five students were not selected by any club. So they make their club named student cultural society.
So are you thinking what is supernatural in the story? Let me tell you after forming the student cultural society, something random supernatural thing is happening to them. So what is the supernatural thing? The supernatural thing happening to them is swapping or changing the body like your name anime.
But this is a different anime than your name. So basically they are aware of the problem and hidden things of other members of the group. Other supernatural things happen like time travelling, even they can transfer their thoughts in others’ minds.
This is how Kokoro connects anime to transfer supernatural elements into the slice of life. There are comedies, love triangles and twisted stories in their life after the supernatural. After all those problems and fights, they stay friends with each other. This anime very well explains the friendship and its importance in life.
Despite the 2012 anime, it has outstanding animation. Silver link studio developed the Kokoro connect anime. If you are a fan of slice of the life anime or haven’t watched a slice of life, I will indeed recommend you to watch it.
12. Sekirei Review and Rating [ 8 / 10 ]
This anime is the genre of fantasy and romantic comedy. It has a total of 12 episodes in season one, and second has 13 episodes and ova. If you have already watched Zatch bell anime, then you will quickly understand Sekirei anime. The main character of the Sekirei is Minato Sahashi.
Minato Sahashi is a decent boy, but he failed his entrance exam twice. One day he comes home from school, one Sekirei falls on him. Let me tell you what Sekirei is, Sekirei is choosing her partner. If you love the harem genre, then you will like this anime.
11. Special A Review and Rating [ 8 / 10 ]
Hikari Hanazono has a primary desire for her rival named Kai Takashima from high school. Kei Takashima is famous in the school and topper too. Anyhow Hikari Hanazono wanted to win against Kei Takashima at any price.
I think Special A is an outstanding show. It is fun, and a girl named Hikari will love her as she always challenges Kei. There are two other characters in the series, called Tadashi and Akira, and they fight all the time. The series also has many funny moments.
In the story itself, seven students known as Hakisenkan high school scored high in the exam and placed in a special group called Special A. The characters in the series are also elegant and romantic. Special A’s these characters have different personalities and are suitable for this series.
10. Kimi ni Todoke (From Me to You) Review and Rating [ 8 / 10 ]
Kimi ni Todoke is also known as from me to you in the English. If you love romance, then you will like the Kimi ni Todoke anime. This anime is the story of the girl’s name Todoke, and everyone avoids her for no reason.
All her classmates ignored her, but the class’s famous boy fell in love with Todoke in a twisted manner. Same with the Todoke. Fall in love with the class boy named Shota Kazehaya. Shota Kazehaya and Todoke are the opposite of each other.
But let me tell you that it is the slow-paced romance anime. He immediately sees her as a kind and caring person, even if others say anything about him. Through friendship and the latest romantic development, the two learn a little about each other.
Kimi ni Todoke released in 2009, and it sounds like an art style of the time. This show’s graphics do not look like high-end budget anime, but the expression and the in-depth colour used are likeable for the romantic anime.
Sawako is my favourite character, but she will love him, even more, when he learns from Shouta. He is a person with all kinds of free thoughts that can fight for all of us. If you like old anime, this is a great series to find out.
9. Tsuki Ga kirei ( As the Moon So Beautiful ) Anime Review and Rating [ 8.2 / 10 ]
Tsuki Ga Kirei belongs to the romance genre, and the English name of the anime is the moon so beautiful. This anime is so unique that you will enjoy and love it if you are a kid or are in 10th standard or college.
The story starts with the boy who is not social like others and does not care about other things. He usually reads novels and writes something like literature books. Most of the time he spent his life with the books.
Now the girl character has just shifted to Tokyo in his school and met him. One day the boy went for dinner with his parents and guess what the girl’s parents also came for dinner. Both parents met on that day. Graphics and character development is excellent in the Tsuki Ga Kirei. I suggest you watch this anime because it is such a great anime.
8. Sakurasou no Pet no Kanojo (The Pet Girl of Sakurasou) Review and Rating [ 8.2 / 10 ]
The first word I can say after watching the anime has never judged a book by its cover. If you think it is the rom-com anime, then you are wrong here. This anime is better than you think. Sorata Kanda is the main character in the anime of the Pet Girl of Sakurasou. Sorata Kanda is a 17-year-old high school boy who loves cats.
The dorm of the high school dumps Sorata Kanda. And then he had to join the sakura dormitory, which he did not like. Sakura dormitory is for the students who not settled in the dorm of the high school.
Every character in the anime has given time for development, so we felt a connection with them. It has roles from various characters, each with a unique perspective and some added. Each character has a depth to explore.
Each character and their story unfolds at a good pace without feeling paused, and different levels begin to intermingle. Most of the time, the show is still very upbeat and moving. Sometimes you can use it a little better and trust your audience a little more about what they understand and what they can empathise with it.
7. ReLIFE Anime Review and Rating [ 8.4 / 10 ]
Relife is a raw slice of life anime with overall good ratings. The main character of the anime is Arata Kaizaki. Arata Kaizaki is a 27-year-old boy and very frustrated with the life he has.
He is so depressed. After all, he recently fired from the job because he fought with his boss. He also gave many interviews, but any job interview does not select him because he can not provide satisfactory answers in his interview for the last job he had.
One day he met with the guy who told him that he is working in the ReLIFE company. The Relife company guy gave him a pill and said to me that your life would change if you take this pill.
Arata Kaizaki finally took the pill given by the Relief guy. When he woke up the next morning, everything in his life changed positively.
On the same day, the ReLIFE guy met him again and said that he is the part of the experiment named the ReLIFE. Now Arata Kaizaki is 17 years old where he is 27 years old. Now he has only one year to change his past failure in his life.
The whole story of the ReLIFE is explaining the importance of our time we are living now. If we do something today that will have some impact on our life for a lifetime.
6. Golden Time Review and Rating [ 8.5 / 10 ]
Golden Time anime based on college and problems come in college life. This anime is a challenge for all romantic genre anime. Golden Time anime is my top most favourite anime of all the time.
Golden Time anime has only 1 season and has 24 episodes. The story started with the main male character named Banri Tada. Banri Tada had some accident after his high school graduation, and he did not remember his past. We can see many scenes of that accident in the many episodes in the flashback scene.
The golden time story is based on the romance between Banri Tada and kouko and the past life of the Banri Tada. If you love romantic anime, then golden times for you, you cannot miss it.
I will advise you to see the songs of the Golden Time, and you will fall in love with the songs of the Golden Times.
5. Clannad Review and Rating [ 8.5 / 10 ]
Clannad is the most incredible anime series to me because it is an urban legend. The story of the Clannad is the top in all the anime. There is a catch with this anime; if you look at this Clannad anime series, it will change your way of watching the anime.
Clannad is not an average anime for that full read review. Clannad is a drama anime with some elements, romance, and a slice of life and supernatural. Most of the Clannad story is based in the school, but we will see some stories after school.
Clannad is bundled with 47 episodes, two ova, and one movie. our lead character is Tomoya Okazaki. The animation of the series is so good, and the Kyoto animation develops it.
Clannad is a great fantasy show. If you love fantasy romance shows, then Clannad is for you. Like music, animation, some elements will be executed in comedy, and some arcs are good. There are some friendship and romance moments in the series so that you can watch it.
4. Lovely Complex Review and Rating [ 8.6 / 10 ]
Lovely Complex is the love and romance anime between Koizumi Risa and Ootani Atsushi. Koizumi Risa and Ootani Atsushi are a mismatched couple because of their heights. Koizumi Risa is taller than any other girl in high school.
In contrast, Ootani Atsushi has less height than the average boy’s height in school. All people laughed at the Koizumi Risa and Ootani Atsushi for their height problem. Koizumi Risa and Ootani Atsushi both have some trouble with their heights and then they fall in love with each other.
The Lovely Complex surpassed all expectations and quickly became my favourite anime. I laughed very lot, shouted at the screen, and opened my eyes. There is no other show that is perfect as the lovely Complex. There were times when I was disappointed and wanted things to be different. But overall, the beautiful anime steals my heart, and I cannot go back.
3. Snow white with Red Hair Review and Rating [ 8.7 / 10 ]
Snow White and Red Hair is one of the best romances and must watch anime. There is so much love story in it to watch. The anime started with a princess named Shirayuki, who does not like her raid hair. One day she was in trouble one price called Zen helped him.
Zen will do anything for the Shirayuki to save her. You will love the entry of the Zen, and the scene was so romantic. Storytelling and execution of Snow white with Red hair is so good. There are two seasons of the snow-white with red hair with a total of 24 episodes.
2. Kaichou wa meido-sama (Maid Sama!) Review and Rating [ 8.8 / 10 ]
Kaichou wa meido-sama is the best high school-based romance anime. Meaning of the Kaichou wa meido-sama is the class president who is the maid. Kaichou wa maid-Sama is the comedy and the romantic category anime.
If you like humour with romance, then this anime is for you. This anime has only one season and has 26 episodes. The people so much love this anime, so no one wanted to end this anime series.
The main character of the story is Ayuzawa Misaki. Ayuzawa Misaki is the president of her high school, and every girl in the high school wanted to be like her. Every boy in high school is afraid of Ayuzawa Misaki.
Ayuzawa Misaki worked at the cafe as a maid for her father’s debt and to support her ill mother. But one day a boy named Usui Takumi from her high school saw her in the maid dress. Usui Takumi is the main male character of the Kaichou wa meido-sama.
Usui Takumi is famous for his looks in high school. With his first meeting with Misaki, Usui Takumi likes her a lot. But after many incidents happened between them, which makes them closer to each other.
So What incidents made us close together? For that answer I recommend you to watch anime personally. I don’t want to give any spoilers about Kaichou wa meido-sama. The romantic scene between Usai Takumi and Misaki is stunning, and I liked it most.
All songs in the Kaichou wa meido-Sama (Maid Sama!) are well returned and executed, and you will love it and listen to it again and again. The opening song based on Misaki, and the ending song based on the usai.
1. Toradora Review and Rating [ 9 / 10 ]
One word for Toradora is just beautiful, and you can not judge a book by its cover. When I remembered about romance anime, one name indeed comes to my mind is Toradora.
The name is taken from the ancient story, where Tora means Tiger and Dora means Dragon. There is always a dragon that can give fights to the tiger. The anime’s story is based on Ryuji Takasu. He is a high schooler, and other high schoolers are afraid of him and avoid him because he looks like his father.
But Ryuji is a kind and calm boy that his mother and his friends know. One day he meets his destiny girl named Taiga Aisaka. As stated, they clashed with each other, but as later they became friends. One thing I liked the most is the Taiga Aisaka. The character development of the Taiga Aisaka is well made.
There is an emotional side of the Taiga Aisaka which makes this anime must be watchable. As you start watching it, you will get started connected with it. The J.C.Staff develops this anime.
