Top Ten Romance and Comedy Anime / Manga


The Top Ten

1 Kaichou Wa Maid-sama!

Hilarious, serious story line, CUTE, not awkward at all! THE BEST!

It just has something unique from all the other animes and mangas... The manga is just so cute! I blushed so much it has so much cute scenes and scenes where you just want to go like "! This is happening! Yes! ". As you keep reading, you will surely want Usui and Misaki together! Once you finish the anime, be sure to read the manga because the manga is MILLIONS times better than the anime! It has additional story and it has more CUTENESS

LOL, I just keep on bragging bout cuteness

I love this manga so much that it hurts. The fact that he always teases her in this cute way. They also have the rich kid and the maid setting at a school which I love. I wish I had their romance and I wish I could be the strong willed person that she is. This was literally the first manga I read and it made me expect way too much but got me into more manga and now I'm hooked. I could reread this a thousand times and not get bored with it. The part that I hate the most is the fact that I can't live the life she is living and most guys aren't like this so its really depressing

I loved this anime and the manga too!

2 Ouran High Host Club Ouran High Host Club

Hikaru and Kaoru. The two most funny and cute things on Earth. Also the comedy in this shows great, the dubbing is amazing, while not much love between hosts there sure is chemistry which is absolutely worth a shot.

This manga/anime, is not doubt the cutest thing I've ever seen. It has a variety of different characters with their different personalities that most don't have, and I've only watched the anime, but from what I've seen I think that it's pretty amazing in it's humor and most of all character development.

To be honest I didn't get why people loved this anime so much until recently, the anime itself does not have a lot of romance with Tamaki (the main guy ) however after reading some the manga I've come to enjoy all of the funny times and romantic scenes a lot more! I am just taken with this manga.

No words can express how much I love this series, no matter how many times I watch the anime, I ever get bored of it, I always have something to look forward to, its just the best

3 Gakuen Alice

Someone read the manga its beautiful.( the anime is okay)
Its about a 9 year old orphan( who lives with her adopted grandfather)named Mikan Sakura hears how her best friend Hotaru Imai is forced to transfer to an elite school for talented kids called "alice". To reunite with her best friend Mikan runs away to Tokyo to Gakuen Alice ( Alice Academy ) to see her again but instead transferring there. Kids there have special abilities that the government hides by keeping the children closed away from their families. Mikan realizes that people around her are keeping a close eye on her like sees a threat.Truths are covered by lies to hide away its past and for some reason Mikan is involved.It has extremely lovable characters and the more you read the more you want.

This is a must-read-manga, for it perfectly blends comedy, mystery, and action all together with a hint of romance.
- animedreamer

This is such a good manga! (i didn't like the anime much though) the characters are so good, and it's a creative concept! It has a really good plot line! Definitely a must-read :) the story is about a girl, Mikan Sakura, whose best friend Hotaru is invited to a fancy school for talented kids. Mikan follows after her, and makes new friends and has many adventures, learning more about her own powers. She learns about her past, which is tied in with the academy, and not only is it a good plot line, it's pretty funny too! And it has romance :) MUST READ!

Gakuen Alice is a really nice manga that shows determination, friendship and love. The manga started as a comedy as Mikan was trying to adapt to Gakuen Alice and it soon became a suspenseful moment in Mikan's last moments in the school. Many people didn't really like the ending as it seem as though it was a cliffhanger but it at least gives us a chance to interpret what is going to happen in Mikan and her friend's path.

This manga/anime has become one of my top favourites~for sure :P Definitely a must read/watch

4 Toradora

One of the best romance animes. You feel so happy when they finally kiss, and it feels so satisfying. It is also nice to see how they are after they get together. There is so much more emotion and empathy and caring for each other, and awareness. So there isn't all this wasted emotion, because they don't notice which is typical in other anime. Which makes the emotions add up even more.

Coming from someone who doesn't even like anime or romances very much, this had me hooked. I found myself wondering why the heck I was still watching it, but it just kept me going! Definitely recommend it.

My all time favorite along with The Familiar of Zero

This anime hit me in the feels. it has bits of comedy, drama, and some awkward love -along with lots of jealousy- I recommend this if you like short, mean, tsundere girls, romance, comedy, and lots of drama. the storyline is beautiful and the art is fantastic. woo (o3o)/ - ayumi-oki

5 Skip Beat Skip Beat

This manga is so so beautifully amazing! Just the art is enough. The main guy character- Ren is so hot!... Nakamura Yoshiki, the author, is so good in making hot guys enough for girls to drool on them... Also, the anime is as good as the anime but was not continued til season 2...yet.. I didn't like the live action drama because they didn't gave justice on the characters and also the main story of Skip Beat.

I love the manga and anime, I wish they would do more of the anime though:(

Super funny and I love the manga so much.

A must read.It's hilarious.kyoko is the heroin here.Her thoughts are so cute and funny.u laugh till your stomach hurts. She starts in showbiz for revenge and we later on witness her growth.Oh it's indescribable.U know just hilarious
The manga is so funny.So is the anime

6 Fruits Basket Fruits Basket

This manga gives me a mixture of emotions, all at one; sadness, happiness... It makes me understand the characters feelings and the story plot is really interesting and good. And the main couple is so cute! This is my favourite manga forever!

Fruits basket is one of my all time favorite animes. It brings back so many memories! I love the story. Its really intriguing and the story is so sad it actually got me to cry but it still a good manga and anime and the characters! Cute levels 100!

There is just so many characters and, amazingly, all the characters are unique, lovable, and has their own story. The story line is complicated but, amazingly again, it is easy to understand! I just love all the characters here

Fruits Basket is one of my favorite manga's ever! (It's in my user. by the way, it's not in order.) Let's get Furuba to 5th and above! - DBZ_Precure_Naruto_BB_Furuba

7 Special A Special A

Special A was such a great anime. There was humor present in every episode, as well as cute romance between characters that tried to express their feelings to each other. It's similar to Kaichou Wa Maid-Sama only because the characters' personalities/goals might be similar. The basic plot and story line of the stories of different. They're both really great anime

This anime should definitely be second! The entire season is amazing (almost as good as kaichou wa maid sama), but the ending is even better! The last two episodes are better than kaichou wa maid sama, but that could be because kaichou wa maid sama was planning on a second season...

This is a cool and romantic anime that should be on everyone's watch list:) if you watch it I'm sure you will love it.

I seriously love this manga! It is so good to see that the main character,Hikaru never gives up and have matches with her rival as well as boyfriend,Takashima! That pair is just perfect and I strongly recommend you to read this manga!

8 Sword Art Online Sword Art Online Sword Art Online is a series of Japanese light novels written by Reki Kawahara and illustrated by abec. In 2012, it received an anime adaptation produced by A-1 Pictures and the SAO Project, and is directed by Tomohiko Ito . The first season is divided into two arcs known as "Aincrad" and "Fairy Dance". more.

Sword art online is mainly action, you can barely see the romance, but when it comes to the romantic parts its worth it, seriously. The anime Sword art online was extremely amazing (especially plot, it had so much romance) but Sword art online 2 in my opinion was really really really really really really really really BAD, apparently I think it was a flop. The story line was awesome at FIRST then it got so boring because they added in so many random character that aren't needed, mainly NO ROMANCE between Kirito and Asuna and super random little plots they added after Kirito defeated death gun. Asuna joins some random group. It gets all messed. Sword art Online is my favourite romance anime and highly recommended DO NOT HESITATE but you are warned about Sword art Online 2 so braise yourself!

Love this anime but it kinder boring because Kirito met some girl and make them happy and they fall in love with him until season 2 episode 18 to 24 it about Asuna meeting this girl and kinder discover something about herself or another thing

How the hell is Sword Art Online a comedy/romance type of anime? It's more of an action/romance type of of series. Although the romance between Kirito/Kazuto and Asuna isn't favorable in any particular way. It's a poorly written romance, making it as bad as the twilight romance between Edward and Bella. - Crysis

The romance between asuna and kirito was one of the best romance I have ever seen

9 Ao Haru Ride Ao Haru Ride

This is my all time favourite anime and manga of all time. It just has it all, the cute childhood memories, the strong character development, the romance that melts your heart and the pain that breaks it, not to forget the fact that it's a great laugh in every episode. Ao Haru Ride both anime and manga is great both for it's plot, art and characters. Ao haru ride is a story about a boy and a girl who loved each other back in middle school without knowing what they felt for each other, exempt when they meet again in high school both of them have changed so much and slowly fall in love with each other all over again, while facing struggles of everyday highschoolers and more. I recommend it for everyone.

This is one of the most romantic anime and manga I have ever seen! It made me cry, mad, anxious and happy. Romance between two people separated in middle school and found themselves in high school. I really liked the art of the anime and manga. When I finished the anime, I immediately started reading the manga. At the end of the manga, I had an enormous smile on my face for the happiness. It was worth to read it. Amazing love story. Recommend for everyone!

Ao Haru Ride was one of the best romantic anime I've ever watched, and I have recommended it to some people that all loved it. The style of art is unique and is really appealing! It gives you a sense of reality by adding in topics that really do run through teenage minds. Lots of wonderful bits of comedy in each episode to keep you laughing through this fantastic love story between two former classmates!

Tearjerker, heart wrenching, hyperventilating story! Haha ❤ very worthy to re-read again and again.

10 Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun

I super-duper like this couple. they are very straight forward to each others feelings which I find really romantic and unique in the world of anime/manga. and their sweet moments, oh my! I almost hurt my throat not to scream loud. but it really affects me. Episode 1 is the most memorable part for me

This manga is the best! I got carried away that I cry or laugh or scream, even my siblings call me crazy because of it...the plot is great! and its art is awesome!

I love this manga! Super cute! All the characters are so cute! Even the boys! Honestly, sometimes I scream because the art is just cute.

OH MYYY GOD, best ever! no other words, go read the Manga NOW!

14 Lovely Complex

I love Lovely Complex. It was such a great manga and anime. I liked that the main characters were different from many shoujo leads where the guy is cold/princely and the girl is just a cardboard cutout of sweet and naive. The mains in this anime are imperfect and kinda goofy but they have intense emotions too and goals. I can feel myself in the characters because they aren't 2 dimensional. The plot does have stereotypical fallbacks that every shoujo story does like rivals, festivals, falling down and hurting yourself, etc. But all in all it is enjoyable and I don't always mind stereotyping if it's done right or something different is added. It's just a great anime/manga that you can laugh and sometimes cry at. It definitely has rewatch value for me and leaves you with a good feeling. - NerdBunny

Should be number 1. Forever and always. I can't imagine anyone disliking the manga or the anime. The characters are unforgettable and hilarious. There will be times where you feel like laughing your head off and times where you'll want to cry. Hearing the words "bear curry" will definitely make you want to cry. I love the music as well. It's my favourite anime of all time. Lovely complex is life.

Funny. Super FUNNY. It doesn't fail to make me laugh every episode and every time. This anime taught me that height doesn't matter, even if it is true love, first love or whatever love. Love is love and nothing else matters right? Love this anime so much

Do you mean the worst

16 Nisekoi Nisekoi

My personal top ranking anime. Very sweet. It reminds me of my innocent highschool love life. It grows with you as you read/watch it. Comes with mystery which makes you wanna vote for the couple that you want. Overall, a must watch/read anime/manga.

This anime/manga moved me to tears. It is a very enjoyable and touching story, the plot is well thought and the story moves on rather than beating around the bush for too long.

This anime just broke my heart, it was so sweet. It is the best amine series on earth.

The manga was amazing! I cried so much at the end, this really moved me to tears! - upgradermunchkin

17 Kamisama Hajimemashita

My favourite anime/manga ever can't wait for season 2, seriously in love with Tomoe his so hot so I need to praise the style and the voice actor- perfect I think the ears got me

I love this anime and I also love the manga... I can't get enough of Tomoe I love him to death, the story is very sweet and exciting with twist at the same time! Highly recommended

I love Tomoe... I read it on manga, but not yet finish.. I really love this stories! Geez...

What's really fascinating is really Tomoe And Nanami kiss, wonder what they've names the little boy? I was thinking that they named their child as she named Tomoe when he got hurted and Yukiji( a.k.a Nanami) saved him, and she make up a name so that the villagers wouldn't kill Tomoe. Also I was thinking is this is kept going over and over agin? I mean like at the present Tomoe has the hairpin and Nanami swollwed the fish king or whatever right eye and the hairpin Tomkoe said he bought it. Did Nanami really went to the past with that hairpin? Like that was at the past alright Tomoe gave that hairpin to Nanami, and Nanami gave it to Tomoe 500 years ago, so is it had happen before like they already got married and went to the situation with the god thing? Am I right or wrong cause it confuses my head literally. Overthinking makes my head hurts, but in the same time I like that they are a couple, it makes me happy. What I wish for them to Live forever, for they will not cherish their love ...more

18 Clannad Clannad

This is a really sweet story but ends to soon for my liking.

They made a sequel call 'Clannad the after story'. Watch it! Oh my God, it made me cry! It's them all grown up, so more mature.

This anime had romance, humor, and touching scenes all mixed into one. Plus, the art is cute!

It was so good the best sad but cute

Awesome anime

19 Black Bird

While cheesy at times this manga is full of character development and emotional trauma. Coupled with demons and fighting it is the perfect manga to curl up with.

I also posted in Gakuen Alice, but this comes second after Gakuen Alice. I do Love the romance between Kyo and Misao it is an overwhelming passion that readers can relate with without the whole demon thing. - zoeybird2266

I love it so such

For me this is the best manga that I have read so far. I'm deeply fascinated with the personality of Kyo. He love Misao so much to the point that he have waited 10 years, become a head, lost his family, almost die just the have Misao. His first and last tears are because of Misao. For him He is nothing without Misao. Kyo is a dream boy of every Hopeless Romantic girl like me. He is my first love in anime next is Usui 😍 How I wish I have my own kyo.

20 Kimi ni Todoke Kimi ni Todoke

This manga/anime is so cute but realistic. It shows you the happiness and heartaches you can get when you experience love. It shows the bittersweet when you achieve love. Seriously so cute and refreshing.

This is one of the best manga that I have ever read. I loved the characters and their unique personalities, this manga / anime had all I wanted in it, it had a lot of tension in it which made it all the more interesting

The main character was more innocent than most people realize, hidden by a scary somewhat TERRIFYING appearance. But she try's and try's to befriend her classmates' (which can be difficult when you're afraid to call them friends! )

This is one of the best manga I have ever read. (For sure) Its stroryline is realistic and gently enlighten your heart or makes your heart break when that sad moments come.. Definitely my FAVORITE!
