    The Top 5 Best Romance Animes Of All Time

    If you didn't feel like crying or laughing at these, then you don't have a soul.

    5. Lovely Complex (2007)

    If you're looking for a realistic high school relationship, this is it. The show makes sure to keep everything as relatable as possible, and I don't mean "quirky" relatable. This is Netflix's Tall Girl if it was actually good and accurate. It's definitely an older anime but you should still absolutely watch it.

    4. Toilet-bound Hanako-kun (2020)


    Is it weird that I ship a "toilet ghost" with a human? I'm not sure if this counts as a romance anime or not, but I think that the interaction between the two main characters is just so cute. This show has a lot of crazy and funny moments but what really overtakes the show is the chemistry between the two main characters.

    3. Fruits Basket (2001, 2019–2021)

    This is one of those shows where the side characters are somehow still main characters. The love how instead of making the three main characters into a love triangle they made it so that only of the male characters had feelings for the main girl. I also love how even though there are so many stories and so many characters, you never get lost or dizzy.

    2. Toradora! (2008–2009)

    I don't know if it's because I relate to the short and angry girl trope but I love this show. The characters are well-developed and the romance storyline is unlike any I have seen (but I may just not be that cultured in anime yet). Something about the short girl being feared by the entire is school is just so funny to me and yet so empowering as I short girl myself (I mean I'm not that short, I'm like 5'3").

    1. And Ouran High School Host Club (2006)

    While the ending was pretty bad, you can't tell me this isn't one of the best animes of all time. The storyline is impeccable. All of the characters' storylines are interesting and fun to see progress. Not to mention the romance between the two main characters is brought up so well. 10 out of 10 would recommend.
