Clannad, with it's sequel, Clannad After Story, has the best anime available in the Moe genre, without question. It explores not just what happens in high school, but also what happens past high school. Not to mention, many tears were shed watching this anime by many, many people.


In this anime we have a bum. We watch as he grows after decideing to help Nagisa. We watch them grow, laugh, and cry together. It touches your heart in some many ways.

6 Maid Sama!

This has got to be the BEST romance ANIME/MANGA I have ever got the chance to come across. The way the main female character which is named Misaki reacts to Usui which is the main male character is hilarious,their love story is pretty amazing. You should totally watch the anime and I also recommend reading the manga

I mean seriously, It has Takumi Usui in it. What more do you want?
