12. Masamune Kun No Revenge

Masamune Kun No Revenge

Masamune seeks revenge on his childhood rulers in this drama.

His weight formerly drew mockery.

Masamune is healthy today.

His tactics may be funny.

Masamune has many admirers, but he only wants one.

Aki Adagaki injured him in the past.

He grows closer to Aki Adagaki, but that’s not the only challenge he faces.

Slowly, the romantic undercurrent and hilarious manner of life sweep you away.

11. School Rumble

School Rumble

Did you remember the show I mentioned in the past, Gamers? The most effective description of School Rumble is by saying”it’s like Gamers but with no “gaming” components.

The only difference is that School Rumble has more characters and is two seasons!

One thing I love in School Rumble is the focus on Harima who is the main character that is an artist. Manga artist. Of course, there’s Tenma is what makes the show so hilarious in the first place.

10. Nodame Cantabile

 Nodame Cantabile

Nodame Cantabile It’s a unique case. It takes music, adds some liveliness to it, mixes it with humor and romance, and can make it into an amazing piece of work.

All of the main and back characters are musicians who have distinctive skills. Each has its own set of goals to elevate its talent to the next level.

Contrary to the majority of rom-coms, Nodame Cantabile has also been dubbed Seinen. The age of the characters is between 19 and 30. It is refreshing, especially because of its art style and animation.

9. Love, Chuunibyou & Other Delusions

Love, Chuunibyou & Other Delusions

Chuunibyou can be described as the type of anime that I’ve discarded halfway through, I realized: “maybe I’m being too harsh, so I’ll revisit it”.

The reason is that Chuunibyou’s comedy is bizarre and will make you laugh at the absurdity of the entire routine.

But it does get better. If you get to enjoy the show, you’ll be loving Chuunibyou as among the top romances com’s you’ve seen.

This is in a class of its own, and is among the very few anime shows that can match it 100 percent.

8. Clannad


Clannad is divided into two distinct series. 

The first season is pure rom-com. Humour, jokes, funny episodes, funny people… Everything that’s there. There are also moments when things become serious.

Season 2 however is more comedy and less romance.

This is the place where Clannad is at its best and smacks you in the stomach the most powerfully… because the outcome is one of the most heartbreaking, saddest things a romance anime ever delivered.

This is the thing that makes Clannad unique.

7. Toradora


Also produced in the hands of J.C Staff, the show takes shows based on rom-coms to new levels of emotion. I almost quit Toradora up until episodes 6-7. Then I realized what a masterpiece of a show Toradora is.

It will make you dislike certain characters, but you’ll fall in love with them after you get to get to know them better. Also, the physical fights that are later in the series will be awe-inspiring.

An animated series that can cause you to feel all kinds of emotions is worthy of recommending to rom-com lovers.

6. My Bride Is A Mermaid

 My Bride Is A Mermaid

A helpless teenager plunges into the sea and is almost drowned because the water is too rough for him to swim. The cocky way he acted led him to this situation.

The cliches of the first episodes aside, once you’ve gotten over this, the humor that is seen in My Bride Is A Mermaid is hilariously good (and skillfully insensitive).

It’s my top option for anyone searching for humorous, sweet and relatable, and hilarious ‘the fu**’ Rom-coms to dive into.

5. Monthly Girls Nozaki Kun

5. Monthly Girls Nozaki Kun

You could complete the anime in just 4 hours if you want to because it’s short (like Gamers).

It’s a wacky rom-com about Nozaki Kun the manga artist, and Chiyo Sakura. Sakura is a lovely girl who’s romantically attracted to Nozaki. However, he’s too dense and uninformed to understand the potential.

From where I’m sitting I’d say that the comedy is fresh and fun, and I’ve had a few enjoyable moments with this show that I will never forget.

4. Haganai I Don’t Have Many Friends

Haganai I don't have Many Friends

In case you’re not able to tell that this is a sexual harem. It’s not just a rom-com series but in general. If you don’t mind the series, then you’ll get to know Haganai quickly.

It’s about friendship at the core of it and how the main characters handle loneliness. And then there’s the issue of bullying (which can make you angry). No character is the same.

They’re either bizarre and laid-back, or annoying or sweet when it comes to personalities.

3. Maid Sama

Maid Sama

The story begins “serious” and focuses on Misaki Ayuzawa, who is a student council president during the day, and a maid at night at a cafe for maids.

Her father abandoned the family and ran away, carrying a huge debt he owed him.

Now she’s compelled (or driven) to pay off the loan by working at the same time as she’s at school.

This tale is essential since what follows will become more clear as you get deeper into the Maid Sama.

It is home to the top main characters in a rom-com that blends a good amount of humor and dramatic moments.

2. Gamers


Similar to Masamune Ku No Revenge Gamers was released in the year 2017. It’s a “stand-out” series of rom-coms.

In the end, it focuses on gaming culture with gaming references. It is and is accompanied by plain silly comedy and outrageous romantic miscommunications.

This is what sets Gamers from other rom-com series. Its theme is distinctive and if you enjoy it, you will not regret it for even a second.

1. Full Metal Panic Fumoffu

Full Metal Panic Fumoffu

I would not recommend watching this show without having seen Full Metal Panic season 1 and season 2… because it’s a spinoff series that is nothing to relate to its military/action-packed Mecha predecessors.

If you’re not able to stop yourself, you need to be aware that Full Metal Panic Fumoffu has one of the best-executed comedies you’ll ever see. The taste is even better if you’ve seen the first episodes of FMP.

I had no idea that it could be so hilarious.
