Something in the lines of Kimi ga Nozomu Eien or School Days. I'd prefer no incest like Yosuga no Sora or Aki Sora because they're just weird and not interesting.

I'd prefer it not to be hentai because there are rarely any plot to them.

Well NANA and Koi Kaze are the two most serious romance anime out there (and both have sex), and you don't like incest so I would say NANA.

Also, I have yet to watch it, but Rec is said to be a romance anime that has sex in it. http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=anime&aid=3656

Isn't Rec a PG-13 anime? They show sex in that?

I second Nana for sure. Natsuyuki Rendezvous and Honey and Clover have sex scenes but they don't really show all of it. Also, Nodame Cantabile implies it.

Yeah, what u suggest is different from what I'm asking for.

Pretty much I'm looking for a romance with a more mature and liberal presentation of the "romantic" materials rather than that kiddie love stuff.

Nevertheless, I'll keep Itazura in mind because I like anime where characters start off as teens, then grow and live out their lives.

Shoujo ai isn't hentai. Shoujo ai is just girlxgirl romance. Card Captor Sakura has a little shoujo ai and I think we all know that is as far from a hentai as one can be.

Nodame Cantabile, while a great series, probably isn't what you are looking for. I watched the whole thing and had trouble figuring out if they had had sex or not and had to look it up. It is a mature romance series however.

Thirding Nana and Paradise Kiss.

You might also be interested in Rin: Daughters of Mnemosyne. Not a hentai, but there is a lot of sex and it's very serious.

can u provide link to shoujo ai? All i came up with while searching was "sexy magical girl," which is a hentai.

Also, Already saw Rin. It's not romantic, but rather just a fucked-up semi-porno/hentai with massive violence. Think the only thing that kept me watching that was the tits, unlike Hellsing Ultimate, which was just PURE brainless carnage.

I will second Nana for a serious romance/drama.

Itazura Na kiss is more of a romantic comedy but will have some drama and it goes alot further into the relationship if that's what you're looking for.

It's a shame there's only a handful of shows like this. There's always requests for romance anime but the same few titles keep coming up which means there's only a few really good ones to recommend.

More exceptional romance anime needs to be made - there's an obvious demand for them:) Good is just not good enough!!!

http://myanimelist.net/anime.php?genre[]=26 <-- copy paste this into your search bar, don't just click the link.

You should use the advanced search option to search particular genres, not the search bar.

None of those really have sex though. You could try Strawberry Panic, that is another shoujo ai with a lot more booby grabbing and all that. They are in high school, however.

I personally consider Aoi Hana to be a very mature romance but it is a tasteful series that has no sex- Not in the anime, anyway.

Kannazuki no Miko might interest you but it's not the greatest series.

Revolutionary Girl Utena, later in the series, has some brief and tasteful sex scenes and is both shoujo ai and hetero and is a masterpiece.

I agree Rin was close to porn, but some people seem to think that sex in an anime= mature romance. You mentioned School Days so I thought you might be one of those.

Though the scenes aren't often, its still easy to imply. I mean its kind of obvious what you see a naked woman on the phone next to a sleeping naked man, but yeah,i I'm going to have to agree whit everyone's suggestion of Nana.

Wait...you want sex but no hentai? How does that work?
As a child, I was told that society is a melting pot of talents; knowledge and experience combined to form important alloys that will contribute to mankind. When I got to highschool, however, I thought that it's more like a river in which the water represents our peers while we ourselves are the stones in the river. Constant erosion by mindless majority sheeping has made us lose our unique edge. After I hit the age of 18, I realized that I've been wrong all along. Society is no melting pot. Society is no river. Society is a person, a very skilled rapist, and he has fucked us all.

There are a lot of anime/manga that aren't hentai but have sex... hentai merely means that their are graphic sex scenes... the assumption that referencing sex makes it a hentai would be like (and I know this is a more extreme example) saying that any TV show that references sex is a porn... when you see a man and a woman lying in bed together naked the next morning its ok to assume they had sex but obviously that doesn't make it a porno.

Anyways back to the subject on hand, their are quite a few manga that are probably more along the lines of what you are looking for, since anime tend to avoid more mature matters (for the most part, this is not necessarily true as their are some anime that reference sex). However I would Recommend Mars, Its a manga but it is an Amazing romance and probably my favorite romance story out of both manga and anime.

Was reading some of the earlier posts after posting this and saw mention to Nodame Cantabile, had completely forgotten about that. It really doesn't have much reference to sex, although does in one of the later seasons, and isn't too serious of an anime (in fact is in my top 3 "funniest anime list") but is a pretty good anime. So pretty sure it really isn't what you are looking for but I second it since I loved the anime.

Its hard to find actual anime like you suggest with those guidlines simply because it doesent appeal to alot of people, nevertheless I have to reccomend koi kaze even though its incest everyone has to see it its very deep and touching,

On the other hand theres tons of serious romance manga ^-^

Koi Kaze is a serious romance/slice of life anime but people may struggle with the subject matter - need to watch it with an open mind. I've seen it and the story is good.

I wish there was more serious and realistic romantic anime. I hear Winter Sonata is one anime that could fit this criteria. I haven't seen it myself yet.

No, [url]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kq7O6eR12oM]Tatami Galaxy[/url]'s art is ghetto as hell. Nana is freakishly refined in comparison.

Nana also has some awesome music to back it up.

Planetes has implied sex, and is a mature romance, but I'm not sure it's what you're looking for. Rumbling Hearts would definitely fit the criteria, though.

Yeah I know. Most of the recs I see are PG-13 too.

This means the sex's gonna be 2 frames of a girl being naked all covered up in a blanket talking right after or before sex or just 5 frames of kissing then skip to the morning where they're in bed. That's kiddie sex, and it's stupid. It just means that the author intended the work to be for a mature audience, but then wanted it to stay clean for kiddies too.

I really dislike kiddie romances. They're so....bland. They're mostly boy meets girl, boy falls in love with girl (reverse gender if need be), some slice of life romance stuff to fill in gap between this point and last episode, ending credits. Of course there are a few exceptions like Clannad After Story, but they're called "exceptions" for a reason.

Obviously sex is THE criterion when it comes to the level of maturity of a romance story.
SEX = ADULT ROMANCE!!

Can't say I get it, plus you're shooting down all the best recs anyway (like Nana) because of stuff like Art (naturally the second most important criterion for the level of maturity of a story). I'm afraid I can't help you.

Not showing boobs doesn't make something a kiddie romance. Have you been in a relationship or do you just make assumptions based on media? And not showing boobs and making very tasteful sex scenes makes for a better story- Most artists who want their story taken seriously know that sex can take away from the true meaning of their story. I also find it odd that you cite Clannad as a mature example, but to me their relationship felt INCREDIBLY akward and kiddy, more than most kiddy romance stories". Not saying it was bad, but that to me is a prime example of a kiddy romance in the way it was portrayed.

And HOW can you say Nana's art is bad? That artist has some of the most unique and beautiful art known to anime and is 100x better than crappy generic art styles like Clannad and School Days. HEAVEN FORBID ARTISTS HAVE THEIR OWN STYLE. EVERY ANIME ARTIST MUST HAVE A COOKIE CUTTER MOE DESU DESU STYLE.

Edit: Quoting this man for reiteration.

Art's pretty important to the level of maturity.

And yes, Sex = Adult Romance!! Sex means R-rated, means there are alot of free room to put in adult stuff like curse words and fucked-up or shocking situations like in the case of School Days.

Kiddie romances are constricted to the things that they can do, so the shock factor just approaches zero (nada). The best kiddie romances can do is make you cry or laugh (drama or comedy, respectively).

Never said Clannad was mature. I mentioned that it was less bland than the regular kiddie stuff.

Skilled artists can put sex in an anime and take away nothing. Unskilled artists just imply sex because they fear it might take away their audience.

So a story about teenagers sleeping around and murdering each other (school days) is more mature than college students struggling together to make it through college and their daily lives and plan out their own futures? (Nodame Cantabile and Nana) Just because one has violence and sex and the others don't? (although Nana does have sex.)

AND. Are you trying to tell me that THIS:


Is a better and more mature art style than THIS:



You, sir, have no idea what art is or what a relationship is.

And I just showed you a comparison and asked you a question.

Do you honestly believe that cookie cutter moe desu desu art is better than a uniquely stylized art style?

And your definition of mature is on a basis of content rather than value.

Edit: For clarification, it's fine to say that you just don't like it. But don't go around saying it's BAD, because it's not.

I enjoyed most of the art in anime and don't mind the big differences in say Clannad, NANA or even Usagi Drop - they just different from each other and I equally like the art in all of them. It's only bad when lack of budget makes a difference to the art like in Kare Kano (His or her circumstances)....that anime had a good story but the animation got extremely poor due to budget and time constraints. Now that's what I call bad art.....a real shame though!!

Watch Winter Sonata if you want mature romance - not sure if it's shows sex but that shouldn't be important if the story and romance is compelling. An excellent romance story does not have to show sex to substiante the relationship as long as it's realistically portrayed and sex is implied should be enough for mature viewers. Reviews on Winter Sonata seem good and it's on my plan to watch list.

Uhmmm, I can only think in some that have been already said, but I would second:

Rec (this possibly the best one)
Shingetsutan Tsukihime Sided Romance
Nana
Salaryman KintarouSided Romance
BerserkSided Romance
Gundam SeedSided Romance
Spice and Wolf
White Album
ZetmanSided Romance

Not so sure about white album, but I think they do have sex, I dont remember well xDDDDDd.

Ah by the way, you were confused about some terms: Yuri is the Hentai of Girl with Girl, and Shojo Ai just implies that there is romance girl and girl, on the guys, is Yaoi and Shonen Ai...

I hate all of them xD

And the guy who said that he/she is looking for sex with romance, but he doesnt want hentai...See, when there is normally sex in romance, at least, I kinda feel identified with the male character (because I'm male) not because only perverted things, is just that when you come to a certain age, kissing is not the only normal way to show love. And so, I looked for anime who didnt show anything about hentai, but they did have sex and were romance.

School Days is an exception to the rule, but normally, it usually is Mature Romance, if they didnt put the sex like the "japanese tradition marryng happy-for-ever thing"

I want to clarify that Yuri and Yaoi are NOT NECESSARILY HENTAI. Yuri is just another term for shoujo ai as yaoi is for shounen ai. It doesn't mean hentai by any means. People often use yuri and yaoi to refer to more sexual same sex romance in anime, but it does not mean hentai and it's more of an arbitrary naming than anything.

Seconding Nana

Anyways its quite funny seeing a huge arguement about maturity lol. Some of those "Kiddie romances" could be symbolism heavy and actually be more mature than you think. Also Sex does not make an anime "Mature" and just because it doesn't have sex doesn't make it immature. honestly if you want an "immature romance" go watch Chitose Get You, and I guarentee you'll never say that word again. Also sorry but Clannad was the worst example ever, all the characters were just so bland and one sided that I had to stop watching it after about 35 episodes.

You don't want hentai, but you don't want implicit sex either ?

Also, you find this art to be "ghetto" ?

You're a strange one. I find it to be more "mature" than the generic anime art style and definitely more fitting for mature romance.

Mature romance is known as josei and I second Nana and Paradise Kiss if that's what you want. They're both romances with more than "2 frames of a girl being naked all covered up in a blanket talking right after or before sex or just 5 frames of kissing then skip to the morning where they're in bed."

okey, I'll watch Nana :D

Yeah, I'd rather not have anymore arguments. All I'm asking for is romance anime with secks explicit secks (not hentai level).

Only reason I changed my mind was that Heika showed me some examples from the anime itself.

completely off topic, sorry for saying this but thought I should clarify something. As Amberleh said Yuri and Yaoi don't necessarily mean hentai, think of it more like Yuri is to Shoujo Ai and Yaoi is to Shounen Ai as Seinen is to Shounen and Yosei is to Shoujo. Also Yosei doesn't necessarily mean mature romance or even romance for that matter, similarly to how Shoujo doesn't have to be a romance. Furthermore mature Romance can belong in any of the categories although often times it is the case that the more mature romance will fall under Yosei since Shounen is focused more on mainstream battle anime (primarily although their are plenty that don't), Shoujo are often focused on more fluffy and unrealistic romance (again not necessarily true but the amount of shoujo with nerdy girl x school's prince greatly outweigh the others) and finally seinen is more focused on less mainstream concepts for the most part (usually in the form of stuff like more brutal actions or slice of life with a darker ton, although again not necessarily the case). Another way of putting it is that Seinen is more geared to older male readers (teens and up) and Yosei is geared towards older female readers (teens and up). Sorry for the long rant just thought that should be cleared up. However having said that the boundaries between Shounen/Shoujo/Seinen/Yosei are not set in stone, their are many anime out their that are in one category but really share more similarities with another category.

I think it's Josei. Yousei has a different meaning.

0.o I don't remember Kurozuka being much of a romance... also might wanted to have mentioned that Kurozuka is a Serious Mind fuck... atleast from what I remember of it, although I saw it like 3 years ago. Anyways I do agree that it might be up your alley although just know (and if I'm wrong, feel free to call me out on this) that it was more of an action anime and the romance part of it was a little less prominent.

Kimikiss Rouge might not have sex, but the highest rated review says it can make you cry, so I'm gonna watch it as a drama, not a romance with sex, sadly. Damn the PG-13 ratings, damn it all!

When I first saw Rumbling Hearts's cover pic and its content rating, it turned me on so much (not sexually) because it seems like a deconstruction of your typical bland romance anime. Why would such an innocent-looking anime have such an adult content rating? Most anime romance are slice-of-life or comedy (itarua na kiss or something is a comedy romance. Dropped that without even rating it hahaha. comedy=/= serious), but oh no, this one is tragedy, AND it's got SECKS! Perfect combo.

AFAIK, no sex occurs in that series, implied or otherwise.
