From Maburaho to Kanon, happy and sad, here are some anime and manga rom-coms that aren’t as remembered as they should be.
Kodoani.com – A lot of romance anime and manga are already popular with veteran and newer viewers and readers, especially anime titles in the comedy genre. Likewise, there are also many works of the past, which did not become popular despite their quality.
Thankfully, the continued popularity of anime and manga has allowed fans to finally experience these humorous and heartfelt titles more easily. From Maburaho to Kanon, Joy and Sadness, here’s a look at anime and manga rom-coms that aren’t as much remembered as when these anime came out.
Venus to Mamoru
At the top of this list is Venus to Mamoru, not much remembered even though its premise sounds like a recipe for a blockbuster. The main character is Mamoru of the same name, who, thanks to his absolute wisdom, is able to enter a prestigious magic school based on Beatrice’s strength. The guy’s first acquaintance there was Ayako, who is known to be a somewhat strict and unhappy girl. Despite this, she immediately falls in love, taking Mamoru with her in the student council and bringing him into her wizarding world.
The light novel series on which the anime is based has 16 episodes, although the anime only lasts 24 episodes. The story uses familiar figures such as the magical girl, the tsundere heroine, and the male leads who are somewhat distant from the letter T, using it to create a romantic comedy that remains unique with magic proportions. art. Sadly, its unpopular status means it’s not easy to come by, and hard to find.
Wolf Girl And Black Prince
Wolf Girl and Black Prince was originally a manga by Ayuko Hatta, which ran from 2011 to 2016 and collected into 16 volumes. The plot follows a young girl named Erika who feels that she has to pretend to have a boyfriend in order to fit in with a group. Her pretend boyfriend happens to be Kyoya, the most popular guy in school. The guy agrees to her scheming relationship – as long as she acts as his pet “Wolf Girl”.
Despite their less benevolent relationship, the two become close and the cynical Kyoya eventually softens with Erika. While the manga has not been localized to English, the anime can be streamed through Crunchyroll and Hi-Dive.
Love, Chuunibyo And Other Delusions! – Chuunibyou Demo Koi Ga Shitai!
Based on a light novel series of the same name Chuunibyou Demo Koi Ga Shitai! It’s about an interesting romance with a high school student. Protagonist Yuta Togashi hopes to get into a regular high school, abandoning his shameful and grandiose high school image. However, his classmate, Rikka, acts exactly like he did, believing that she has a multitude of quirks and special powers.
Despite their different ambitions, the two become close, forming a club together and even forging a unique romance.
It seems that the most “popular” anime on this list is Kanon by Toei Animation and Kyoto Animation. Based on a series of novels by Key, this anime still pales in comparison to the more popular Clannad, although it has some similar rhythms. The story concerns Aizawa Yuuichi, who returns to a town where he grew up seven years after leaving. Along the way, he meets and befriends several girls, each of whom helps him remember different parts of his past. The resulting situations are humorous, light, and romantic as well as heartbreaking, running between drama and emotion.
There have been two adaptations of the game, as well as a manga. While the second book is quite difficult to find due to the same name as another, unrelated book, the anime is much easier to appear.
