Watching anime, and reading manga online are two of my favorite hobbies. Whenever I get some free time from my busy schedule, I just lay on my couch and stream anime. I recently found interest in romantic anime genre. There is nothing beautiful than watching two souls living and dying for each other while making the most out of their time. Today I couldn’t find anything to write, so I decided to share some of my favorite romantic anime series that either I am watching or in my watchlist. If you are an anime fan, then do watch these series, and I promise you will fall in love again.
Best Romantic Anime Shows to Watch this Year
There are many anime series in this genre but the followings are my absolute favorite anime series in the romance genre, and I suggest everyone watch at least once in their lifetime.
1. Ore Monogatari
This is the first anime series that I saw in this genre, and I absolutely fell in love with both Yamato and Takeo (main protagonist) and their cute journey. MMX News Caster recently named Yamato and Takeo number two romantic couple in their top cute anime couples list. So, you know they are legit.
Yamato is a cute and beautiful and Takeo is also a very good guy with a gentle heart. Takeo is a muscular guy who scares many girls in the school even though he is a good guy at heart. One day Takeo saves Yamato from being bullied, and that starts a love story and their romantic journey. Grab some coke and popcorn because you are going to love this couple.
2. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun is also known as My Little Monster in English. It is a romantic anime series unlike any other. You will fall in love with this series and characters from the first episode. It has all the elements you need to cook a perfect love story.
The story starts with Shizuku, a cute school student who was tasked by her teacher to deliver some necessary supplements to Yoshida who was suspended from school. Yoshida is socially awkward and he is touched by the move of Shizuku of delivering the supplements to him. This is how the story begins, and it soon becomes a love story you would love to live.
3. Kimi no Na wa
Kimi no Na wa is also known as Your Name in English. This anime series is not like any other average anime series you have seen. So there is a boy called Tachibana who is from Tokyo and one day he woke up in a remote village in a girls body. Something similar happened to Miyamizu, a sweet girl from a remote village find herself one morning in a boys body in Tokyo.
This alteration keeps happening a few times a week, and that is how they both got to more and more about each other without ever meeting. With time they fall in love and become little desperate when they can not access each other’s skin. You should definitely add this anime to your watchlist.
What would be your reaction if you get a letter from yourself from 10 years into the future? You would be shocked right? And what if the same letter tells you to rectify some mistakes that might cause you to regret in future? You would completely do that, wouldn’t you? Naho Takamiya a student receives one such letter from the future which tells her not to let go of Kakeru Naruse, a new student at her school. This show explorer all the adventure the girl goes through obeying the letters that apparently come from herself from the future.
With all these good romantic anime series, I am now hooked to this genre. There are many other good romantic anime series that I could’ve mentioned, but I feel like if you are starting with this genre, then these four are the best to start with.
