      I agree nice list of romantic school animes. To be honest I didn't like Zero. Louise annoyed me big time,lol. My favorite romance anime of all time is Kimi ni Todoke. I was ecstatic to see it on your list. I just love how sweet it is. Ouran and School Rumble are my favorites as well. Ouran is just hilarious.

      Nice list of romantic (and often times funny) school animes. I personally have already seen Ouran High School Host Club, Fruits Basket, and Zero. I have written a review about OHSHC and for over half a year had Zero as my computer desktop background. All three I highly recommend to anyone to watch.

      Thanks for sharing your list!
