5. Maid Sama!

This anime is about a high school girl, named Misaki Ayuzawa, Who works in a maid cafe as a part-time employee. Although she wants to keep her job confidential, Takumi Usui a classmate of hers finds out about it. This guy is your typical coolest guy in high school, handsome and a loner by choice. Eventhough I said 'typical', it doesn't mean he is bad, as he has a fun character with some goofy traits. This anime has a perfect balance of romance and comedy.

Seasons: 1

Episodes: 26

Dubbed: Yes

4. Toradora!

This show has some really unique characters, You might think each one of them can be put under a specific genre, but you just cannot.

The story follows as our protagonist Ryuji falls for Minori, She is the best friend of our other main character Taiga, while Taiga has a crush on Yuusaku, he being the best friend of Ryuuji (our male main character), and rest are spoilers. Taiga and Ryuuji become friends to help one and other with their individual love interests.

3. Oregairu

Also known as 'My teenage romantic comedy is wrong as expected! SNAFU'. This is especially wonderful as a wholesome experience. Our protagonist Hachiman is one of the best characters in the medium, he has quite a dark view of the world, which he shares from time to time. He is a hero in his own right, yet not having a shred of popularity. The story follows as he is forced to join a Volunteer Service Club by his educator. The reason being an essay he wrote, which mocked modern social relationships and this raises concerns for his mental health. In the service club, he meets Yukino, the club president.

This anime is more on the 'good plot and comedy side' as the first season has virtually no romance whatsoever. The later season is a bit quieter and serious.

But when you reach season two and three, you will be able to appreciate the dialogue, because the anime will make you fall in love with the characters.

Seasons: 2

Episodes: 26

Dubbed: Yes

2. The pet girl of Sakurasou

I can't explain this anime as well as it deserves, but I will strive to do it justice.

Sorata (protagonist) ends up in a dorm for problem children due to having a pet cat, even though he is your typical good student. One day a girl with a strange personality, Shiro, also rolls into the same dorm,

Although she is a brilliant artist, living with her is described as having a pet. Due to the fact that she needs help taking care of her own self, a day passes and Sorata is made to take care of her due to a unanimous decision by his dorm mates.

And that leads to uncountable cute and hilarious moments.

The show is a must-watch, being especially close to my heart as it inspires viewers to follow their dream. I mean after watching this you be inspired to do something. Thus it's my go-to show to watch when I am feeling down

Seasons: 1

Episodes: 25

1. School Rumble

School Rumble is one of the best anime that I have ever watched. The reasoning behind this is, maybe because I am attracted to long-running shows. This series contains a wide variety of fun and unique characters.

The comedy is absolutely gold, romance is there, although not in an intense manner. Romance is present in an absolutely perfect quantity for a show of this type, not focusing too much on the main couple, rather it focuses on the little sparks between different characters among its vast cast.

The art style is pretty old even though the animation is remarkable.

The show features two protagonists. First is Kenji Harima, the 'baddest badass' in the whole school, and the second is Tenma Tsukamoto, an airhead who is in love with Karasuma, unaware that our other protagonist, Harima, has a crush on her. Harima is such a loveable character, makes you want to root for him all the way through the journey.

Seasons: 3

Total episodes: 54

Dubbed: yes

Some Honorable Mentions

Honorable Mentions:

  • Fruit basket
  • Golden time
  • Love complex
  • Yamada-Kun and 7 witches (a must watch)

Maid-Sama, in my opinion, is inferior to Yamada-Kun. But it has an abundance of romance, more than any other show on the list.

What do you think?

Which one will you watch?
