20 Romance Anime Recommendations for the Hopeless Romantic
6. My Love Story
Think no one would ever fall for your ugly face? Well, My Love Story is proof that if you have a good person behind it, even you can get the cute girl no matter how handsome your best friend is.
Humorous, if not a little repetitive after awhile, this is a genre-breaking romance anime where the manly friend with a face like the front of a bus finds his love story.
Clannad is a staple in the romance genre. It features your typical harem, each girl with sadder or more traumatic problems than the last, and a boy, with problems of his own, fixing them.
It is a great story about friendship that turns into love, and by the end of Clannad After Story, you will never forget the effect it will have on you.
8. Your Lie in April
If you like your romance anime to be as rejuvenating as it is bitter sweet, than Your Lie in April will quickly rise to the top of your favorites. At a glance it seems like your typical music anime filled with music-related drama, but it is so much more. It is about facing your traumas, leaving no regrets, and living each day to its fullest.
Full of drama, full of tears, and full of powerful love, this is a series that can bring you to your knees, my romantic friend.
9. Spice and Wolf
Spice and Wolf provides one of the most mature romances in anime. It follows the story of a merchant and a goddess as they travel together learning more about the world and each other. Things are slow and deliberate, but love is often that way.
Throughout its several seasons, you watch as friendship turns into love while getting a front row seat to all the tender moments in between.
10. Anohana: The Flower We Saw That Day
This is another series that explores first love and the regrets that we often have in our youth. However, in Anohana, while the characters are given a chance to repair their relationships by a ghost of a friend whose death split them apart, you also get to see some of the drama and feelings that kept them apart.
This series doesn’t give you a lot of relationship payoff, but its bittersweet story will make you cry.
