Best Romance Anime

Here are some of my favorite romances, some have good development and others are romcom's done right.
1 Nagi no Asukara

Nagi no Asukara

Nagi no Asukara is everything you expect for a romance. The setting is everything but cliché and the anime brought in some touches that makes the anime feel different than others. Especially some plotpoints change the whole setting that is built, and if you need any anime with tousands of love triangles, this one is for you. Instead of making everything obvious from the start, they made you question everything and also made you rooting for your favorite couple. All the characters are really developed, even some characters you used to hate in the beginning. Nagi no Asukara is almost purely about romance, with some fantasy vibes and drama to make the two balance perfectly. It really makes you think about changing, and things that always stay the same. When is it right to change, and is it right to always stay the same?

2 Special A

Special A

Some animes are excellent comedy wise, some are drama wise, some are romance wise, but for me Special A is also strong character wise. A big fault romance animes always make is the realism when it comes to the romance itself. Not everybody falls in love with the exact same person, and I like it that besides the main couple, there were also different couples blooming. Shoujo's are normally too ignorant to give side couples a time to shine, but Special A gives it credits and shows that there is not only one couple in the world. Still.. Special A can be quite stereotypical some times, yet they know how to balance it with little touches that make it stand out. Special A is excellent if you finally search for a anime that finished and came to conclussions, another thing that romance anime ignore to do.

7 ef - a tale of memories

ef - a tale of memories

Ef is not your typical romance. What at first look looks quite normal, has different elements trown to it and it's nice to see different themes in this anime, that helps romance blossom between characters. Ef has extremely good quality of it's animation, to its soundtrack, to its opening, meanwhile the anime is almost ten years around. What this series does is completely developing characters and giving them backstory and flashing them out. Instead of putting some random characters in the race, they made the characters feel like real persons, what made the story look realistic even though some elements were supernatural. The anime is a must watch for if you haven't watched yet and quite underrated.
