I am a front-end developer by profession, but I enjoy writing articles about anything mysterious, interesting, and fascinating.

Romantic comedy animes are a delight to watch. They are light-hearted and fun to watch. The heart-warming romantic combined with the occasional comedy is the best combination we could ever expect. I have compiled a list of some amazing rom-com anime which in my opinion are some of the best. Feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments as well. Please be aware that there might be a few spoilers.

10. Amagami SS

There are many romantic animes where the protagonist has a harem of girls who all love him. This might seem interesting but the main character never really gets close to anyone in particular and the story goes nowhere. In some anime, there are many interesting side characters whom we might be rooting for to get together with the protagonist but that doesn’t happen.

This anime solves this problem by providing alternate sequence of events where the protagonist gets together with all the girls who were in love with him. Amagami SS is based on a dating simulator game about Junichi Tachibana who is the protagonist. The story is about how his life changes when he gets together with one of six girls from his school.

However, this is usually far from reality. ‘Gamers’ is about the life of Keita Amano, a high school gamer who falls in love with another gamer friend.

This anime is the story of the love between the most famous girl in school and an average gaming nerd. There is good character development for all characters in this anime and the comedy is golden. You will definitely enjoy watching this anime as it is full of comic moments.

Tomoe who is a fox familiar is bound to serve the master of the shrine but hates Nanami at first. The story is about how love starts to blossom between this fated couple.

Inu Yasha

7. Inu Yasha

From romance-drama to action. Inu Yasha is based on an award-winning manga which follows the adventures of Kagome Higurashi who is a fifteen-year-old girl from Japan. She gets dragged into an old mysterious well in her home and ends up 500 years in the past.

There she ends up freeing a dog demon named Inu Yasha and shatters a sacred jewel which contains immense power.

6. Sakurasou no pet na kanojo

This is an interesting anime which has a mixture of sorrowful moments, romance and hilarious comedy. The anime revolves around the life of Sorata Kanda and several other problem students in his high school. These bizarre delinquents are put together in a special dorm.

Sorata’s life changes after the arrival of Mashiro Shiina who is a world-class artistic savant. Although talented she is unable to take care of herself and the responsibility falls on Sorata. Though he initially takes care of her due to her inability, he later realizes his true love for her.

Lovely Complex

Lovely Complex

5. Lovely Complex

They say that unlike poles attract. This anime is the perfect example of this saying. It follows the unusual love between Koizumi Risa and Ootani Atsushi who are classmates in high school. Koizumi is unusually tall in her class and Ootani is below average in height. This makes them develop an inferiority complex.

To make matters worse both their crushes fall in love with each other leaving them alone. The duo is also seen as a comedy pair and ridiculed in class. However, despite their differences, they learn that they have a lot in common with one another. Slowly they begin to understand their true feelings.

Golden Time

Golden Time

4. Golden Time

Golden time is a more intense and serious anime. Banri Tada loses most of his memory after getting into an accident. He ends up transferring to Tokyo to join a law school and meets new friends. His life completely changes after meeting the beautiful Kouko Kaga.

They get into a relationship but things don’t end there. His past life comes back in flashes and his love for his childhood friend begins to surface affecting his current life. The anime is very emotional and intense as the protagonist battles with his past but also has light-hearted and comic moments as well.

Toradora

Toradora

3. Toradora

Another example which proves that unlike poles attract each other. Ryuuji Takasu is a kind-hearted high school student who enjoys housework. He takes care of his mother after his dad left them both. However, despite this, he has an intimidating face which makes people think that he is a delinquent student and they keep their distance.

His classmate, Taiga Aisaka is just the opposite of him. Despite being small and doll-like in appearance, she is very violent and had earned the nickname, “Palmtop Tiger”. Due to some circumstances, they agree to help each other express their love for their crushes but things don’t end up as they expected.

Nisekoi

Nisekoi

2. Nisekoi

This is an example of a harem anime done right. Raku Ichijou is a high school student and heir of an intimidating Yakuza family. He, however, just wants to live a normal high school life. He has a crush on Kosaki Onodera and tries his best to express his feelings for her but is unable to do so.

Things change when the American Bee Hive Gang invades their turf and conflict breaks out. To prevent an all-out war, he is forced to pretend to be the boyfriend of Chitoge Kirisaki, the beautiful daughter of the Bee Hive’s chief. Further confusion occurs when a third girl appears claiming that she is to be engaged with Raku.

Kaichou wa maid sama

Kaichou wa maid sama

1. Kaichou wa maid sama

This is one of the best romantic anime I have ever seen. Normally in romance anime, the characters are portrayed as too dumb and oblivious to romantic interests but this anime is nothing like that. There are no unnecessary deviations and the plot is well developed. Certain anime also leaves us hanging with no conclusion but this provides us with closure as well.

Misaki Ayuzawa is the first female student council president of Seika high school. Although she is from a very poor family, she strives hard to work in a maid café and do school work as well. However, Takumi Usui, the most popular guy in school finds out her secret and falls in love with her. The start of a wonderfully romantic love story!
