Shouta brings out the best in her and teaches her see her true colors breaking all the barriers Sawako has put up about her heart. The curiosity at first, then the puppy love beyond is sure to make you all giddy
What a nice tale of heartbreak, love and lust this anime is. One of the most mature approach to exploring different kinds of love. Nana is absolutely a gem when it comes to romance anime. With so many couples making sparks, it’s hard to keep up with the amount of excitement as you progress through Nana.
Romeo X Juliet
The fact that this anime is slightly based on the Shakespeare Play doesn’t at all diminish the anguish and the romance. A perfect anime adaptation of William Shakespeare’s classical work. This one is definitely worth checking out.
Hana Yori Dango
Hana yori Dango is based on the most selling shoujo manga and has a big number of live-action adaptations to its name. A Strong willed poor girl going up against the richest boy in college is surely the kind of plot that makes it big.
Story of Megumi and Chiaki is thoroughly explored in this one solely based on how music can heal, connect, deepen and strengthen the bonds between people.
Clannad: After Story
This tearjerker doesn’t require many words to be defined. Tears rolling down your cheeks are going to become a routine while watching this one, keep a lot of tissues at the ready. This is a sequel to Clannad anime, sweet and wrenching and so worth watching.
Spice and Wolf
If you don’t want your romance to have that traditional high school theme. Spice and Wolf is probably more your thing. It’s more of an adventure where the hero Lawrence and the wolf like deity named Holo get their fates entwined. The chemistry is so on point.
The amount of goofiness and yet seriousness, the balance in this one is just beyond perfect. Japan has surely cracked the code to the art of overdoing! Yet they do it so perfectly and Taiga is surely the cutest thing around.
The Garden of Words
ASMR to the soul to be honest. Everything starts and escalates as a boy one day skips class and meets a mysterious woman.
A typical Shoujo. Story of Naho, a girl who is warned by her future self to take good care of a transfer student if she wants her to stick around.
