If you’re looking for a pure romance anime, Kanokon is probably not what you want. A school comedy that’s also incredibly funny, it contains no serious shoujo elements and can be enjoyed by anyone who loves humor or watching a high school boy trying to seduce his teacher.

The story follows high schooler, Kouta Tsuchiya, as he starts his first year at the prestigious Kuoh Academy and is immediately attracted to one of his teachers: Chizuru Minamoto, who happens to be an unmistakably beautiful Maho shoujo with incredible powers. When she realizes his feelings for her, Chizuru does everything in her power—including becoming human—to win him over.

While this may sound like another otaku favorite (which it is), Kanokon has some unexpected twists: including yandere characters and an original soundtrack composed by Meguro Shoji (Persona 5). You’ll watch episode after episode just waiting for the next time these two meet so they can share their lovey-dovey moments together!

What’s even more romantic than a boy and a girl meeting in high school? How about when the boy and girl are both troubled by the past and fall in love? And then they break up, but get back together in the end. That’s how this one goes. It starts with Yuki, a smart kid who’s stuck with his childhood friend, Shouyou. They’ve been inseparable since he moved next door to her as a kid. But Shouyou does something mean to him that causes him to run away from home for two years before returning as an entirely different person: stronger, tougher than ever before.

When he comes back he meets Maki Nishikujou—a cute girl who knows him from high school but they don’t seem to have any friends in common—and it turns out she has some family issues too! They both start hanging out after school together at first just because they’re both loners but soon enough start falling for each other…until one-day things get complicated again when Shouyou makes another dumb decision (this time involving Maki) which leads everyone into thinking he’s cheating on her with another girl named Ai Yamamoto despite not being actually involved with either of them!

5. Toradora!

Toradora! is a series about two high school students who meet and fall in love. It’s one of those “meet cute” stories, where you have the shy girl who becomes friends with a bully who happens to be her new neighbor. He turns out to be kind of an idiot, but he’s got some redeeming qualities and it doesn’t take long before they start dating. But soon after they start dating, their classmate Taiga finds out that Ryuuji has been lying about his age—he’s actually 17 instead of 18—and she breaks up with him for this reason alone (it takes place in Japan). After finding out how immature Ryuuji has been acting since the breakup, Taiga decides she wants him back, so she goes through the trouble of getting them back together again.

This anime may not be everyone’s cup of tea; however, if you like romantic comedies then this will definitely suit your tastes!

6. Kyoukai no Kanata

Kyoukai no Kanata is a great romance anime that manages to be both lighthearted and emotional. It’s about a girl who can see ghosts, which leads her to join an organization of otherworldly fighters called Spirit World Warriors. She meets a boy who also belongs to the team and quickly falls for him, but he doesn’t seem interested in getting serious with anyone. The show follows their relationship as they fight ghosts together, trying not to get distracted by all the cute anime moments along the way.

This show has some great action scenes and interesting characters, but what really makes it stand out are its supernatural elements: they’re not just cool or creepy—they’re also romantic! In Kyoukai no Kanata, love isn’t just something that happens between two people; it can happen between humans and otherworldly creatures too (and even plants).

7. Kamisama Hajimemashita

It tells the story of Nanami Momozono, a young high school girl who is suddenly transported to a strange world after being rescued by a mysterious boy named Mikage. The two quickly form a bond and end up living together in Nanami’s new home—a shrine!

The first season follows Nanami as she adjusts to her new life, making friends with both humans and other gods, learning how to use her powers as well as how to deal with her crush on Kamiazuma (and his feelings for Tomoe). Seasons 2 through 4 follow different characters from previous seasons and are not connected in any way besides sharing some common themes like romance and supernatural elements; this means it can be enjoyed independently from others if desired

The anime’s first season tells the story of Taichi and his fellow club members who suddenly find themselves switching bodies with each other at random intervals.

9. Love So Life

Love So Life is a romance anime about a high school student who falls in love with his teacher. The two of them get together, but they’re not allowed to be together because it’s forbidden by the rules of the school.

The heartache and drama that ensues are what makes Love So Life so great as a romance anime.

My Little Monster is a romantic comedy that follows the story of Haru Yoshida, a high school student who’s just trying to live her life. She has friends and family, but she’s lonely.

When she meets the mysterious Shizuku Mizutani on the train one day, everything changes for Haru.

But soon they begin spending more time together as friends…and maybe more?

13. Maid Sama!

Maid Sama! is a manga and anime about a high school girl named Misaki Ayuzawa who becomes the student council president. She is forced to work at an all-boys school because a boy made fun of her when she was young. The problem is that she hates boys in general and has had no experience being around them. This changes when she meets Takumi Usui, who isn’t like other boys at all! He might not be your typical romantic lead, but he’s sure got charmed in spades.

The show follows their relationship as they help each other through problems at school and find out more about themselves along the way. In addition to its sweet storyline and cute characters, there are also some funny moments that will keep you entertained throughout (particularly if you enjoy laughing at yourself). It may be rated PG-13 for suggestive content involving kids playing house with dolls or mentioning sexual things being said by adults—but nothing too risqué happens until later on in the series.

14. Toriko

Toriko is a manga series by Mitsutoshi Shimabukuro. It has been serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump since 2008 and is licensed in North America by Viz Media.

It tells the story of Toriko (Toshio Furukawa), a man who loves to hunt for rare foods. His travels take him around the world, where he encounters many unique creatures along the way!

15. Hotarubi no Mori e

Hotarubi no Mori e is a simple story of a young boy who meets a ghost girl and falls in love. The story is told through the eyes of the boy, Hotaru, and his friend Gin. They try to figure out why they are having such vivid dreams about this forest where they believe there are goblins.

It’s not a complicated film with lots of twists and turns (there isn’t much action), but it does have some interesting characters that kids will like. This would be great for younger viewers who want something more than just an anime series or movie with talking animals or superheroes. It has beautiful scenery that adults will enjoy as well!

16. Kodomo no Jikan OADs

Kodomo no Jikan OADs are a series of OVA episodes that were released in conjunction with the Kodomo no Jikan manga. The OVA series is set in a world where children are able to use magic, and it follows two elementary school students who use their powers to fight demons. The first season of Kodomo no Jikan aired on Japanese television from July 5th to September 25th, 2008, but if you’re looking for more episodes, Hulu has six additional ones available for streaming!

In this anime adaptation of the Tonari no Kaibutsu-Kun manga, Sawako Kuronuma is a quiet girl who has just started high school. However, she soon learns that her next-door neighbor Shizuku Mizutani is not quite what she expected; he’s an incredibly cute boy who only talks about books and doesn’t know how to interact with people face-to-face. Despite his lack of social skills, Shizuku does seem interested in getting closer to Sawako…
