Hi I'm new to the anime community and have recently gotten interested in the romance genre of anime. I have seen a few and am wondering what the favorite are of the community.

*Katanagatari

*Chouyaku Hyakuninisshu: Uta Koi.

*Itazura na Kiss

*Natsuyuki Rendezvous

I haven't seen many standout romances yet so don't have a top 5 list or anything, but I did like the romance in Bakemonogatari a lot. Great couple/wonderful characters.

Clannad
Rosario+Vampire
Steins;Gate
InuYasha
Shakugan no Shana

Everything in my list with the exception of Clannad does not have romance as the main focus, but it does play a part in each of these anime and it is a part well played.

Seconding R+V(the manga is way better than anime) and Shana.

1. Kimi Ni Todoke 1. Lovely Complex
3. Higashi no Eden
4. kokoro connect
5. Peach Girl
these are in my opinion real romance anime. top two are my absolute favorites and i can't pick between the two.

by the way someone above me mentioned itzura na kiss. definitely a good one as well.

some other good ones that have more comedy and other stuff that i stll found mildly entertaining
Bakuman
Nana (need to push yourself through the first 5-6 episodes then gets really good)
Beck
spice and wolf
Kaichou wa Maid-sama!

ahh there are just too many good ones. shuffle! was good as well. the most surprising ending in most romance animes i have ever seen.

Clannad
Kokoro Connect (altho my main ship didn't survive, I'm ok with the pairs that got together)
Nodame Cantabile (they both grow in their relationship, and classical music, yeah)
Gundam SEED (you know how love persists in the battlefield. But i'm also disappointed my main ship's standing isn't clear)
Fullmetal Panic (ultimately it's a boy meets girl story, but they meet under a unique circumstance)

.. I like my romance to have another plot point besides their love story to force them to develop as characters.

Mine could be considered action anime's with a major bit of romance as a carry-on for the main story, but they are all very good animes in their own right.

Eureka 7 (Romance beginning in wartime era, mecha)
Tsubasa: Reservior Chronicle (Lead female loses her memories, and lead male helps her rediscover them through travel to other worlds and dimensions)
Valkyria Chronicles (War torn country with a budding romance between the two leads)
Aquarion (This one is a bit over the top with its metaphors and makes fun of itself quite a bit, but its still entertaining and includes a cool take on the romance/destiny storyline)
Clannad (As many have already stated, just a great romance anime. Romance as a standalone is not really my thing, but this one is probably my one exception)

Clannad.

Also Lovely complex.

I thought Kaichou wa Maid Sama was great also. I think most of the bad reviews were downright wrong..Give it a chance.

Maison Ikkoku - The pinnacle of mature, realistic romance anime.
Cossette No Shouzou - Words can't describe.
Cardcaptor Sakura - Just awesome. (It's more romance than magic)
Urusei Yatsura - Watch it.
Toradora! - Even though I've lost some respect from it, I must say it's still a WELL executed romance.

Eden of the East

Only 3 I can come up with at the moment and although Eden isn't a full on romance I do like the relationship between the 2 main characters.
