    Depends. What kind of romance are you looking for? School life, comedy, fantasy, loli-shota, mecha, yaoi, sci-fi? You might try 'Itazura na Kiss' or 'S.A. Special A' for the school, 'Ouran High School Host Club' for the comedy, 'Rosario + Vampire' or 'Fushigi Yuugi' for fantasy, 'Junjou Romantica' for the yaoi, 'Outlaw Star' could do for the sci-fi but it's not centered on it. I don't know of any loli-shota and most of the mecha I watch is ancient so... I hope that helps some.

    Heck Fate/Stay Night has a good romance in it. It's geared more to action but the romance is undeniable.

    Itazura na Kiss isn't so romantic as it is a comedy about what the main character hopes would be romantic. I love it, though. There's plenty of anime with romance in them-- you'd probably have to be a bit more specific if you want a certain type. EDIT: The following sentence became a run-on, so I'll make a list. There's stuff like...

    • Lamune, which is purely benign, slightly comedic romance
    • Myself; Yourself which is comedic, slightly mysterious and tragic (ended pretty nicely, though) romance
    • Zero no Tsukaima which is comedic fantasy (original sort of fantasy) romance-on-the-side
    • Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora which is (very) tragic romance story
    • Mamoru-kun ni Megami no Shukufuku o! which could be considered the legendary loli-shota/fantasy romance (just a year's difference, however)
    • Kimi Ga Nozumu Eien, the supposed "adult" tragic romance (in that the characters were adults, mostly; I didn't like this one)
    • Lovely Complex, the comedic shojo unlikely-pair romance (I did like this one, seriously)
    • Bokura ga Ita, the non-comedic shojo boring-as-nails romance
    • Ai Yori Aoshi, a slightly harem-like, comedic, unfortunately perpetually repressed romance (still excellent, though)


    The list could go on. I was just trying to show some slightly varied examples with rare and common mixed in.
    Must've been evil peanut butter.

    Someone recommend me an anime with comedy or senseless violence or both, with a decent story tacked on.

    Great Teacher Onizuka is great for comedy. Pointless violence... idk Bleach? I'd say Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann for your action though. The story is good, I wouldn't say senseless violence though.

    I think Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo would be perfect, if you haven't already seen it. Or else, One Piece (tho it's already well-known), Sumomomo Momomo... and.. that's all I can think of right now.

    Okay, well how about one with a fantastic story?

    I'm kinda looking to find something on par with the greatness that is Haruhi Suzumiya.

    GTO is definitely on par, if not better, then melancholy of Haruhi Suzimiya. And Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, is awesome as well, it's more action based but has a lot of "lmfao" moments. The stories of both of these were fantastic imo. I mean you'd have to try it yourself to see what you like.

    Hey Jeff, I'm kinda getting into GTO, but I got a question: Would you recommend the english dub or the japanese dub?

    I watched it in Jap. I rarely even look at Eng dubs anymore. The translations aren't all too great, but I rather that then some horrible batched up VA that just all out sucks.

    Funnily enough, I was thinking about asking for some decent comedy recommendations but guess now I don't need to. Many thanks for including those suggestions!

    I haven't really watched an anime since Hellsing (non OVA) and Gungrave. I enjoy mature themes and some blood, but dislike anything overly romantic. I don't like little kids as protagonists unless it stays mature. Any recommendations? Preferably something not currently on-going.

    HMM, you might like Black Lagoon: The Action is crazy, there's is little to no romance, and it's pretty darn bloody. Even though you don't like kid protagonists I recommend Full Metal Panic!, the kid protaganist is pretty much an oblivious robot. The action is top notch. Most of the action is Mech-oriented. It does get pretty heavy on the romance side during the end, so I won't push it too hard on you.

    Ah. I've heard of this Black Lagoon previously. Think I'll check it out then. Thanks.

    No problem but check out FMP! when you get a chance. It's pretty good.

    Can anyone recommend me any anime that has a great sense of comedy like School Rumble besides GTO? Hope it doesn't have a lot of fanservice though.

    Thanks a lot for the recommendation ,noskillbassist . Unfortunately I already watched Haruhi Suzumiya. Haha, that series really was a bit wacky and weird.

    sho85 I can't personally recommend it, but I hear "Lucky Star" is pretty good. And it fits the criteria.
