Although the term "romance manga" is very broad, we still want you to rank your favorites. What are the best romance manga of all time? This list features some of the most popular romance manga, including both older and new titles. The genre is pretty self-explanatory; romance manga explores the relationship between two or more people, whether it's an innocent school crush or an adult sexual relationship. None of these manga are hentai by any stretch, but some do have more adult themes than others.

Examples of manga in the romance genre include My Little Monster, the story of two odd high schoolers who find they're a perfect match for one another, and The World God Only Knows, which pokes fun of Japanese dating sims and the otaku lifestyle.

If we missed any good romance manga that should be included, feel free to add a few titles to the poll.
