Romance is always in the air with Crunchyroll’s streaming service! As one of the more well-known genres in anime, romantic anime series can usually be found in abundance. From MY love STORY!! to Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, let's take a look at the best romance anime streaming on Crunchyroll!

The great thing about these Crunchyroll romance anime is that each one is so unique; some of them are comedies while others take a more serious stance. The Ancient Magus' Bride is a fairly new romance anime that Crunchyroll offers, along with other modern anime like My First Girlfriend is a Gal (which is a great lesser-known series you should check out!)

Love triangles galore, Toradora! is the adorable show about how love can blossom in ways you'd never imagine. Ryuji Takasu may look like a delinquent because of his eyes, but he's actually a very sweet and loving person. Taiga, on the other hand, is one of the school's scariest people around. While the two have a general dislike towards each other, they do realize that they can help one another out. The two hope to set each other up with their individual crushes, but there are plenty of backfires and plenty of new feelings.

Not all of us are born to make our romantic partners swoon. If you're socially awkward and unsure of what it's like to date, Say "I Love You" is a perfect show to watch. Mei Tachibana has spent her high school life with no friends to speak of because of a childhood incident. Feeling that betrayals are inevitable, Mei finds it hard to believe when one of the most popular guys in school, Yamato Kurosawa, takes interest in her.
