Things get Romantic, as fans rank the Top 20 Anime with the most "sympathetic" depiction of LOVE

Anime could often make us feel the love, and we could truly feel the romance as we watch the couples get together or how painful a one-sided or unrequited love is. For this week’s Charapedia poll, the Japanese anime character database has asked the fans to vote for which anime series is the one they felt the most sympathy when it comes to romance.

A total of 10,000 votes have been tallied for the poll, 51.7% of whom are male, while 48.3% are female. Out of the 84 works included in the poll, only the Top 20 were named, and they are:

20 – Strobe Edge

19 – One Week Friends

18 – Chihayafuru

17 – Plastic Memories

16 – Maison Ikkoku

15 – Blue Spring Ride

14 – Nisekoi

13 – Your Lie in April

12 – ef series

11 – Monogatari series

10 – Nagi-Asu: A Lull in the Sea


9 – Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions!


8 – Snow White with the Red Hair


7 – Honey and Clover


6 – My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU


5 – Ore Monogatari!!


4 – Sword Art Online




2 – Toradora!


1 – Kimi ni Todoke / From Me To You


While many people think that CLANNAD should have won, fittingly enough, it is a SHOUJO anime which took the top spot, and it ain’t even an upset, as Kimi ni Todoke, which is considered as one of the greatest romance anime ever, beats out other romance-genre favorites in these rankings.

Other big names in the romance genre have also made it to the Top 10, including Toradora!, Honey & Clover, and of course, My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, as well as Snow White with the Red Hair and Nagi no Asukara.
