It's time to get in touch with your emotional side, as we're ranking the top romance anime that has ever been made. These shows typically depict two people falling in love; it starts with a crush and the audience watches it blossom from there. Good romance anime highlights all kinds of relationships, from schoolyard crushes and first kisses to crossdressing anime about adults developing a relationship at work. They also feature some of the sexiest anime characters and anime girls ever created. Sometimes referred to as love anime, these shows can be a little more slow-paced than your typical shoujo anime, but that isn't to say they're boring. In fact some of the best romance anime isn't strictly about love, but rather a combination of multiple genres.

In the hit series Inuyasha, the love between Inuyasha and Kagome is strong throughout the series, but it takes a back seat to the fighting and action scenes that really drive the show. The same goes for the popular Eureka 7, where Renton and Eureka fall in love while piloting mechs and fighting the evil United Federation.

Don't forget, if one of your favorite romantic anime shows is missing from the poll, you can add it so that others can vote for it too. Add as many series as you like, as long as they tell a love story with intense feelings and emotions.
