Firstly i apologise if this thread has been done to death, but i did search the forums and couldnt find a thread similar/identical to this. Ok so post your favourite Romance anime. I never used to be a fan of any film, series or anime that was romance based. But my opinion has changed recently.

For me the best ones so far have been

Toradora
True Tears
Planetes
b gata h kei
5 Centimeters per Second
Bakemonogatari
Spice and Wolf


In order of favourite at the top. They can be any form of romance anime, be it ecchi, comedy, fantasy, serious etc.

Also any points / opinions/ things you like/ dont like about the genre as a whole

For me i would say

likes=

-when you find a good romance anime it leaves you feeling things that you usually don't experience when watching other genres. I would say that they have an emotional impact that is hard to find in other anime series that don't have a romance theme running through them.

Dislikes =

- Loli and incest themes. It seems that romance has a lot of them ( well it is to be expected) I think that these can somewhat be put aside based on the quality of the anime but at the same time, it is a genre which has made my stomach churn more than any other.

- It is VERY hard to find a good romance anime. Espeically with all the ecchi bollocks mixed in. You get the rare ecchi romance like B gata h kei which breaks the mould and is actually good, but they are so few and far between its a bit disheartening sometimes.


Remember these are personal opinions on what i like / dislike and of course i dont expect everyone to agree with me/ i dont expect to agree with everyone who posts. Try and keep it as pleasant as possible, debate is encouraged, but no flaming. ( my thread my rules :p)

One last thing try to keep your list between 5-10 long!

Happy posting everyone!

In order:
1) Kare Kano
2) The Girl Who Leapt Through Time
3) Kaichou wa Maid-sama
4) Romeo x Juliet
5) Kimi ni Todoke (1st season only)

Likes

- Depending on the characters or how well the romance aspect plays out, low-rated romances can often be enjoyable. For example: sola, Candy Boy, Ginban Kaleidoscope, Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou, and plenty of others.

- The chemistry and friendship between characters usually found in romances.

Dislikes

- The silly comedy that is usually associated with romances, i.e. "rom-com". I'm more of a fan of serious and pure romance titles, like my top five above.

- In harems, the guy tends to be either dull, retarded, or perverted.

1, 3 and 5 are all on my list to watch! I have to admit the girl who lept through time is a great one too. I should actually add it to my list!

ive come to find the rom com aspect mildly enjoyable and on very rare ocassions actually finding it very funny. But i do get where you are coming from! Also +1 for the harem thing, *cough" Zero no Tsukaima" cough*

Awesome. Highly recommend Kaichou (despite the iffy-sounding title) and at least the first half of Kare Kano (despite the iffy rating here). Also, I didn't RTFP before, but I just added a few "likes and dislikes" you requested.

Oh, the retard befalls a fitting end. Better than being shot. I honestly couldn't stand the anime enough to even go past halfway, but read about the ending elsewhere.

i did read about it, just couldnt bare to watch it. I think it was good in its own way. I dont think any anime has managed to make me dislike a character that intensely.

SPOILER ALERT!SPOILER ALERT!SPOILER ALERT!SPOILER ALERT!SPOILER ALERT!SPOILER ALERT!SPOILER ALERT!SPOILER ALERT!SPOILER ALERT!SPOILER ALERT!SPOILER ALERT!SPOILER ALERT!SPOILER ALERT!SPOILER ALERT!SPOILER ALERT!SPOILER ALERT!



didn't one end up killing him and lopping off his head then the other kill her then open up her stomach to see if she was preggers? man it wasn't what i was expecting when i started the anime, cetainly breaks the standard mould.

Clannad is more about the second half of season 2, in my opinion. Regardless, I found the rest of it enjoyable enough.

To be fair, Clannad is more of a drama than it is a romance. But yeah, give it another go.

And I'll say True Tears. I liked the ending.

*runs away from irate shippers.*
I touched upon a pure white Symphony,
but what color will our future dye it in?
In this world where the light dances freely,
I want to become a melody clad in radiance.
That one and only thing, we can draw it together.
