Romance anime? (92)

1 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-17 04:13 ID:wpWLpFcA

Having recently got tired of anime series such as, naruto, black cat, bleach etc (Shōnen anime). I've tried some Shōjo anime series and loved it. What romance anime series would you recommend? I've only watched: Kanon, Chobits and utawarerumono so far.

2 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-17 04:25 ID:GrDRniU9

ef - a tale of memories
Honey and Clover
Kareshi Kanojo no Jijou
Nodame Cantabile
Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo

and anything by Shinkai Makoto

3 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-18 06:15 ID:yjVsNLwz

Makoto Shinkai's three films... in order...

"Voices of a Distant Star", "The Place Promised in Our Early Days" and finally "5 Centimeters Per Second".

I don't even want to be in a relationship but "5 Centimeters Per Second" literally makes you feel like there's something missing in your life. It's probably my favorite anime film right now.

As for anime shows though, I love "School Rumble". Its romantic plus its frickin hilarious. And Kare Kano...the manga rocks.

Watch those, okay? Then thank me. ^_^

Kimagure Orange Road does hold up quite well despite of its decade

5 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-19 00:27 ID:lVz/0H8M

How about "True Tears"

6 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-19 04:22 ID:7ufQWul+

Ocean Waves did pretty well for a non Miyazaki and Takahata outing

7 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-19 22:47 ID:CWwurET2

Two good ones unmentioned are Otoboku and Strawberry Panic.

I found Kashimashi to be a bit boring and over the top.

Myself;Yourself, True Tears and H2O started nice, but in the end it really wasn't what I like in a romance anime.

Does anyone know if Itazura na Kiss and Special A are in the same vein as these other shows m.3.3.w is subbing?

8 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-20 10:36 ID:8kG+fMZT

Special A is kinda like Ouran High plus wrestling, kinda. And oh god, Itazura no Kiss. Christ that show sucks :(

They both have strong romance elements though, although S-A is more of a comedy than romance stuff.

I can't recommend Clannad enough. Oh man oh man I can't wait for that game to be translated.

9 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-20 12:15 ID:7ufQWul+

Only naive persons would wait for a Key game to be done in English

10 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-20 13:38 ID:72Rfk/jk

The wiki is making good progress if you ask me.

11 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-20 19:58 ID:MeXyJop+

If you are the lonely and easily depressed type don't watch "5 Centimeters Per Second." If not go for it because it will make you the lonely and easily depressed type, and misery loves company...

12 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-20 22:57 ID:7ufQWul+

If you are murderous or easily prone to anger do watch School Days

13 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-25 02:44 ID:wpWLpFcA

Why would school days make me prone to anger? I've seen the first two episodes and it didn't seem much different from any other high-school romance anime series.

14 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-25 04:00 ID:P08ZQyvg

Two words. "Nice boat."

15 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-25 11:05 ID:AqxCZUEx

The Telepathy Girl Ran its new and sort of goes that way... well at least it contains a boy and a girl...

16 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-25 17:39 ID:7ufQWul+

You may as well give a try to both Someday's Dreamers this season.

17 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-27 23:36 ID:CWwurET2

I saw the first episode of Telepathy Girl Ran. It was really good. Very beautiful art and seems like a great story.

18 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-28 00:43 ID:7ufQWul+

Seraphim Call will give you a much needed dosage with love stories

19 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-29 05:02 ID:dTEVCmf4

wpWLpFcA, Well judging from your selection try Clannad, and if you want some comedic relief after watching all of Clannad and then the movie try Midori no Hibi, Final Approach, Rizelmine, and Kage Kara Mamorou. You also might like Sola and Air. All these are Shōnen like the ones you've watched (romance anime doesn't automatically mean Shōjo). If you really want a Shōjo Vampire Knight seems to be getting a lot of attention lately though i personally dont care for it too much.

20 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-29 05:17 ID:dTEVCmf4

wait let me correct one thing though some of those is actually seinen lol i kinda blur between the two

21 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-06-29 14:28 ID:7ufQWul+

Diamond Daydreams sports a winter theme using three different arcs

22 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-07-13 12:46 ID:cFsjw0TG

>>14 i wish i'd never watched school days now...

currently watching S.A, it's pretty good.
Shuffle! is another good one, nice mix of tragic backstory, supernatural (although not so much that it detracts from the main purpose of the anime - romance) and school life. nice characters and visuals too.
Tokimeki Memorial might be worth a look too, it's a fairly nice, lighthearted anime.

>>19 i found Air to be a bit confusing, but the visuals are stunning.

oh and stay away from Green Green. from the short intro i read about it, there was plently of opportunites for multiple romance scenarios... but they just spent the whole series doing jokey ecchi scenes. waste o' bandwidth if u ask me

23 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-07-13 14:34 ID:7ufQWul+

Shuffle is horrid even without expecting much out dating sim anime

24 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-07-13 14:39 ID:cFsjw0TG

>>23 what makes you say that? as in, what makes it such a bad anime in your opinion?

25 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-07-13 22:44 ID:7ufQWul+

26 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-07-14 02:01 ID:HgusFYQb

Man! That awful!

27 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-07-14 02:01 ID:HgusFYQb

Man! Thats awful!

accidentally double posted due to my stupid internet speed! sighs....

29 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-07-14 02:05 ID:7ufQWul+

You are right maybe that should have said it is a harem soap opera

30 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-07-14 22:07 ID:jRAw2WoR

Let's just say this: "Fuck you Makoto."

31 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-07-15 01:16 ID:7ufQWul+

Sentimental Journey is much better among the other dating sim kind

32 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-08-16 22:47 ID:CWwurET2

Here is >>7

I am now up to date on Itazura na Kiss and I think it's really wonderful. Best anime I have seen m.3.3.w. do. I will start watching Special A later.

33 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-08-16 23:54 ID:+80P9/wp

Clannad [Fourthed]

34 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-08-17 15:03 ID:Gv3/dByJ

Da Capo is completely romance, especially the first season

35 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-08-17 21:12 ID:+80P9/wp

EF: A Tale of Memories [seconded]

36 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-09-26 20:20 ID:9XRROH8X

Are any of these considered seinin?

I'm looking for a relatively serious seinin anime that happens to have romantic elements to it. I'm especially not interested in young girls, high school, or slice of life shows (or anything with a primary focus on romance). For example, I absolutely loved Planetes (I still baww every time I watch the last 2 eps).

Sorry for not taking the time to research all these suggestions myself. orz

37 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-09-26 22:57 ID:+80P9/wp

Victorian Romance Emma may be considered the seinen you have asked

38 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-09-26 23:41 ID:Heaven

Thank you. Based on the reviews and summaries I've read, this anime is primarily romance/drama. While this is not really what I'm looking for (I'd prefer a more serious primary theme) it still sounds like an excellent series! At the very least, it'll be interesting to watch an historical fiction anime that's not set in Japan.

39 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-09-27 01:08 ID:+80P9/wp

Master Keaton includes anything but the romance elements you hoped

40 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-02 08:42 ID:jfAwKyck

True Tears or Kanon (The newer version), maybe?

41 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-10-02 16:45 ID:+80P9/wp

Maria-sama ga Miteru

42 Name: AnonymousMan7 : 2008-11-17 05:14 ID:TuWSTXS5

Here's what've I've been into:

Onegai Sensei
Love Hina
Kare Kano
Nogizaka Haruka No Himistu
Zero No Tsukaima
Shakugan No Shana(somewhat)
Oh! My Goddess

and so on...

I can't wait for a following of Zero No Tsukaima, and I'm currently reading the Chibi Vampire(Karin) manga, and watching Shakugan No Shana and Rosario+Vampire

43 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-11-18 01:10 ID:+80P9/wp

True Tears [Fourthed]

44 Name: AnonymousMan7 : 2008-12-02 04:31 ID:TuWSTXS5

What are good romance/comedies? I just mentioned a few, but I I just finished Shakugan No Shana. I'm watching Rosario+Vampire, but I want something else to watch till a new R+V ep comes on.

45 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-12-02 13:21 ID:+80P9/wp

Clannad [Fourthed]
True Tears [Fourthed]

Revolutionary Girl Utena

48 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-12-13 14:27 ID:hGgT4tGn

Revolutionary Girl Utena is none of the things the title makes you imagine. I thought of a political revolutionary movement... I was disappointed

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien

Good site but they are missing some Series.

Candy Boy

52 Name: Destinii Haruya : 2008-12-16 20:39 ID:orG5TVDe

Tokyo Mew Mew, Gravitation, Toradora, Cardcaptor Sakura, This Ugly yet Beautiful World (though that has seinen tendencies really)...

53 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-12-18 22:16 ID:+80P9/wp


54 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-12-21 20:58 ID:Y5HSSqIA

Earl and Fairy could be considered a romance anime if you consider that the that the male lead is a sexual harrassment lawsuit waiting to happen and the female lead is a playing the role of ignorant/denying idiot/hero (usually reserved for male characters).

Rosario to Vampire and Rosario to Vampire capu2 if you really like excessive doting and fanservice.

55 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2008-12-22 13:12 ID:+80P9/wp

Iriya no Sora

Akane-iro ni Somaru Saka? loli + incest romance.

60 Name: Purple_lov : 2008-12-31 14:16 ID:cpwSTasv

All about romance, huh?
Firstly, I recommend Vampire Knight & Vampire Knight Guilty.
Don't miss out Itazura na Kiss as well.
Last but not least, Special A. It is well known too. =)

hmm.. Honey and Clover appeared just once in this thread. In my opinion it's one of the best anime of its genre.
The characters are really interessting and individual and the story always takes fascinating turns.

at the moment I'm watching 'bokura ga ita' which is a anime that really focalizes on the topic relationship, so the charaters really get close to each other, not like shounen romance stuff like love hina or something like that..

63 Name: AnonymousMan7 : 2009-01-02 09:21 ID:TuWSTXS5

How does Amaenaideyo!! end? Do Chitose and Ikkou confess to each other and start a romantic relationship eventually?

64 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2009-01-02 11:40 ID:HI8D8kjI



No really, you're pretty funny.

For some reason Clannad is the most amazing anime I've ever seen. Maybe it's because string theory plays such a significant role throughout. Yeah, string theory. Theory of everything. Beautiful the way they portray Kotomi's scientist parents and Kotomi herself.

71 Name: Otakun : 2009-01-23 21:50 ID:19PS1Ajd

Well I'm loving Skip Beat right now ^_^
Its funny, dramatic, and just plain awesome!

Synopsis: (Not by me!)
Kyoko Mogami followed her true love Sho to Tokyo to support him while he made it big as an idol. But he's casting her out now that he's famous! Kyoko won't suffer in silence--she's going to get her sweet revenge by beating Sho in show biz!

It was a lot more than I expected and I fell in love with this anime pretty quick

72 Name: Random Anime Otaku : 2009-04-13 21:38 ID:GMHarL5t

Peach girl maybe?

73 Name: Nogizaka Haruka No Himitsu : 2009-11-13 00:04 ID:5GkoRiNt

I saw it once.A very intresting anime. you should try this light novel anime.

Kimi no Todoke is airing now. It's pretty much the most pure, undistilled shoujo romance that has hit the airwaves in years. Feels good, man.

Warning: hazardous levels of Mamiko Noto.

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien

Hurt my feelings see romance in a topic and don't see those two animes fallowing them... especially the former.

Both very dramatic and romantic... I mean, Chuck Norris would cry watching those.

>>73 That's an awesome anime, I saw it a while back and loved it. However, there is one thing in the story that will piss anyone off. I'll let you figure that out if you haven't already.

>>75 I'm watching that now, and I love it, its so awesome!!!!!!!!

Onegai Sensei
Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora (or Hantsuki)
I'd say Skip Beat too but I preferred the manga
And if you watched Kanon you have to watch Clannad!
Itazura na Kiss: great romance that follows them into adulthood ;D
True Tears is also very good.
