Im currently watching "Kaichou wa Maid-sama!" you should definitely check that out for a romance / comedy / shoujo / school genre, I am at episode 12 atm and I am ENJOYING it alot!

Very very nice!

Edit: At episode 18 atm, the romance plot does process rather slowly but its still a lot of fun to watch! :D

Edit Edit: I finished it now, I totally recommend it to you (the romance part was a bit disappointing for me but the comedy was great!)

some good rommance/fantasy animes would be nice
its also importent to me that the charcter in the anime will look pretty and not ugly and eyesore...
and please spare me the love comedy ones that the charcters relationships stuck and doesnt go anywhere.. (its ok if its a realy good anime) or the onces with useless male that everyone falls inlove with him for no reason..


You just excluded more than half of the possible recommendations. xD

@Naisugaii

some really great romance/comedy anime's that i enjoyed:

Lovely Complex - absolutely hilarious, and a really touching story as well (24 episodes, all of which are really good quality and actually build on the main story)

Clannad Afterstory - I see Clannad on your completed anime list, after story is 100 times better in my opinion, way more emotional and less harem than clannad was. Just building on the story of okazaki and nagisa. I highly reccommend you watch this ASAP. If you really get into anime's then you will definitely have to hold back some tears of sadness, and of just pure beautiful moments. this anime has it all.

Itazura na Kiss - another one hilarious one, it's very similar to lovely complex i find. you should definitely check this one out.

Toradora - amazing anime, funny and amazing characters.

these are all some of my favorite anime's and i'm a huge fan of romance anime. hope this helps!

Lovely Complex- Funny and touching story, with literally no filler as each episode has progression or roadblocks in the romance

Toradora: A masterpiece of anime for comedy but the romance and drama will grip you in and you can't help but fall for the characters

Mayo Chiki- I've found really good underated anime, definitely comedy in there and dashes of romance :)

Midori no Hibi- Lots of comedy and romance one of my favourite anime's a bit of eechi though :/

Any recommendations for a good romance that is not an annoying harem, is not too much ecchi, the relationship actually progresses, there are legitimate kiss scenes and such (Clannad and Kimi Ni Todoke are a couple exceptions that managed a cute romance with no kiss scene) And i want an ending. I dont want one of those shows that canceled due to financial issues, and i dont want one with a crap ending either, no main characters dieing. Ive seen a lot and im running out of ones to watch I don't mind Shounen, but usually shounen doesnt focus much on the romance, and i want the romance to be an important role not just a subtext. I like shoujo, but i tend to avoid Mahou shoujo due to how cliche the plot is and how annoying most of the characters are etc. http://myanimelist.net/animelist/PalmTopTiger0212 (My list if it helps) Any suggestions are appreciated :3 (Oh and no animes with bad animation, the characters need to be cute. I am pretty picky)

Uh...I don't know how to explain this very well but I'm looking for a show that is different from the usual romance anime in a sense where, the show doesn't stop when they confess their love for each other, I want the show to go beyond that, I want a show that presents what their relationship is like and how they interact with each other now that they are lovers, you know stuff like clannad after story and itzura na kiss.

for something like school days:
Kimi ga Nozomu Eien: There's alot of drama and a love triangle and pretty violent and twisted like School Days.

ef - a tale of memories.: like school days, is not about happy romance, more of the painful effects and serious impacts of romance, are both set in a high school setting.

Any recommendations for anime similar to hatsukoi limited in that its about multiple relationships, set in school, and has a good resolute ending? Hopefully in the genres of comedy, romance and school. Something like tordora, school rumble, and kimikiss? Also hoping its something thats relatable.

I suggest:
http://myanimelist.net/anime/157/Mahou_Sensei_Negima!- Mahou Sensei Negima! - Though from what I've seen the anime stops half-way through the manga. So I guess the manga would be a better option. It's from the same creator as Love Hina, which I saw you liked.

Just a couple of my favorites if you want to check them out

Otome Youkai Zakuro a very romantic anime with multiple pairings, fantasy
H2O: Footprints in the Sand a very sad trgedy that will have you in tears for sadness and happiness
Akane-Iro Ni Somaru Saka classic tsundere romance, with some issues with incest (just a warning)

And that's all i could think of that wasn't said already, though i still really loved myself; yourself

I need to check out kimi no todoke and true tears
Check out my poetry on Deviant Art

Any good tsundere romance animes? Where romance is an actual main theme? Also prefer that it has some comedy in it. Stuff like Bakemonogatari, Toradora!, ZnT, and things along this line

hey darkwap, i've been going through my list trying to find something you might like, here's what i came up with

bakuman, not exactly too much emphasis on them being childhood friends, but great romance and great story overall, i think you will enjoy it, also the second season has already begun and it's even better than the first

myself; yourself also revolves around childhood friends and romance, it was okay, the story is kind of weird though.

honestly that's pretty much all i got for ya :p

hard to find one with a childhood friend that isn't a harem

Hmm :/
I'm huge romance anime fan XD I mean, I always search for anime, where is romance in.
I'm watching ''Honey and Clover'' right know, then, a very very good anime was Arakawa Under the Bridge x Bridge (That is season 2) . Arakawa under the bridge x bridge - I love this anime, it's so cool and osm, I would ask (If somebody have seen that anime) , do you know some similar anime to that? :3 - Sorry, I'm bad at English ._.

And then, romance anime's .. hmmm,
Amagami SS
Myself x Yourself
I don't know more :/ I mean I know, but I don't remember.

Anime film (where is romance) :
5 centimeters per second,
Toki wo Kakeru Shoujo and The Place Promised in Our Early Days

Sorry, I don't know more :/

Any good non-harem romance, and the relationship between the main char is very deep that would make you feel sucked in?

For a non harem romance I would recommend
School Rumble :): Pure comedy and romance which will make you root for the main character

Kimi ni Todoke: Romance between two characters and no one else,but the progression is very slow.

Toradora: It's a two person view on romance, but it makes you root for both the main characters to achieve it :)

Lovely Complex: If you want the perfect non harem romance to make you feel connected to the main character to achieve their romance goal, then this is it :)

Hope this helps you (:

Thanks ! But, I don't feel like watching shoujo romance so, i guess i'll just try School Rumble and Toradora.

Anyway, thanks :D

I'm not a romance anime watcher much so shoujo romance is not for my sort of genre :L, Though Love-com is an exception just because the main boy is awesome xD. I haven't watched Kimi ni Todoke but have heard good things about it in terms of romance so (:

No problem :)

Maybe Mahoraba - it fits the description of being fun, cute and non-harem. Plus it has some very well shown side-characters - some of them may appear a bit irritating at first, but than it shows why they are like this and does it well.

Can anyone help me? I am trying to remember the name of a show that is similar to bungaku shoujo but it's a 12 episode show or something like that. The guy goes depressed after his loved girl goes into a coma after an accident and is hospitalized for 2 years I recon. The other girl who liked him uses the opportunity to get him. I have looked through my list but don't seem to find it but I have already seen it :S

Hi (: I think you could like Special A it's a romantic comedy and it's funny. You could also like Kanon (2006) it's also cute but it's a little more dramatic

Hey everyone! Anyone know any romance/comedy anime that are pretty short? (26 episodes or less) Check out my list for what I've seen already! I know it's short but I'm only getting into anime seriously now so it'll get up there soon I hope. Trying to stay away from harem atm. Oh and I actually like sad/depressing ones too so I'd like those as well. Thanks!

Anybody know of a romance anime or manga with a good dose of drama?

Examples of the type of drama I'm looking for would be things like hiking in the mountains and someone gets hurt (sounds cliche I know). Horrible secrets being revealed. Maybe family problems (running away from home, etc). Generally dangerous situations.

Honey and Clover might be your best bet. You could also try Gankutsuou, which does have the types of drama that you described, but it's not quite the main focus.

Might also check out:
Kare Kano
Paradise Kiss
Natsume Yuujinchou
Berserk

For manga, anything by Inio Asano would be an excellent romance/drama. The best one of his works to start with is Solanin, since it's rather short and very well done. From there check out Subarashii Sekai, Oyasumi Punpun, and then the rest~
