Looking past the typical shounen-ai recommendations, I would say that two very different shows go perfectly hand in hand.

Be it Ritsuka and Soubi, or Aka and Fumihiko, you will fall in love with both couplesand want them to find true happiness.

Though Rec pans out to be the better of the two in terms of realistic romance, Kimikiss certainly holds its own weight in comparison. Both titles flaunt some of the best romantic progression in the genre, and given the sheer number of crap titles out there, this is nothing to scoff at. If you're a fan of good romance, neither title is one to be passed up.
