A beautiful love story with a fitting ending
 
no old art animation please :)

Asai 2007-09-21 05:21

Ai Yori Aoshi would be one of my favourite romance focused stories of all time. Lamune is right up there, too. Both are definitely what I would consider beautiful stories, as opposed to say, Lovely Complex, which while an excellent romance, focuses too much on the comedy side to be 'beautiful' . . . but of course, that depends how you define things.

Maybe give some examples of stuff you've seen for comparison?

ai yori aoshi- DEFINIETALLY


this is the BEST romance anime i have ever watched! I'm still crying after about 2 months have passed since i watched it...it was so beautiful...

theres also a 2nd season but i forget what it is called

Ai Yori Aoshi had potential, but it soon degraded to typical harem anime. The ending is not exactly satisfying either :)

Lamune - the most heart-warming thing you will ever see. Slow paced story about two childhood friends in a seaside rural town, slowly moving from simply friends to something more.

Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora - romance/drama in a hospital setting.

Gift ~Eternal Rainbow~ - romance/drama with a wee bit of fantasy.

Canvas 2 - romance/drama. One of my favorites.

If you don't mind something more dramatic:
Iriya no Sora, UFO no Natsu - romance/drama/SciFi
Air the Movie - romance/drama

While I usually agree with your assessments and suggestions... I have to respectfully disagree on this count.

Spoiler for just in case:


Your other suggestions, though, are all good. Though I think Gift is just "Da Capo 3/Alternative" =p

Hantsuki is definitely right up there. Iriya is a recent favourite, too. Very touching series.

I would disagree that Ai Yori Aoshi was a "typical" harem anime. Despite all the typical harem humor, the core romance between Kaoru and Aoi remained and made this series much more of a romance than almost any other "harem anime" I have ever seen.

I also found the first season ending entirly satisfying. I admit the second season was not quite as good (although I still found the Tina arc especially touching), but the season two ending was not nearly as good as season one.

If anyone did like the anime of Ai Yori Aoshi, I would stronly suggest reading the manga. The english version of the 17th and final volume of that series is due out next month, and the manga brings the whole story or Kaoru and Aoi to an actual climax.

Huh, I have never seen this, but you make it sound very interesting. I may have to check this out, too!

I second that. A wonderfuly touching romance.

Quote:

Gift ~Eternal Rainbow~ - romance/drama with a wee bit of fantasy.
I enjoyed this one two, although not as much as Ai Yori Aoshi or Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora

I might also recomend REC. It's a "real life" romance about a 20-something office worker thrown together by chance with a young female seiyu.

I am going to respectfully disagree with that as well :)

Spoiler:


Gift and Da Capo are not that similar, besides the basic plot outline. Da Capo is a full blown harem, Gift is a love triangle. First season of Da Capo is riddled with filler episodes and rather poorly paced. Gift gets straight to the point and is good at it, plus it features on of the best male leads you can get to see in such shows.

Arkuatic 2007-09-22 01:27

currently checking them all out keep them coming please :)

School Days!

Ok, fine. Kanon.

Arkuatic 2007-09-22 02:57

seen cannon.
School days doesnt seem interesting anymore with such a sex-only minded protagonist.

KholdStare 2007-09-22 06:01

If you want a "fitting" ending, then I would recommend against Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora. It's fitting in a way that it's logical, but I don't think that it's what you have in mind, especially the "beautiful love story" part.

For this thread I would recommend REC, Love Hina (Again), Nodame Cantabile, NHK ni Youkoso!, Onegai Teacher, Onegai Twins, and Gravitation.

School Days - Love Triangle with a fitting (tragic) ending...

andromeda0201 2007-09-22 10:38

Victorian Romance Emma - both seasons, you'll have to see the 2nd season for the ending

Saiunkoku Monogatari - the second season is still airing but the 1st one is a good ending by itself

Full Moon wo Sagashite - even though this isn't completely a love story, the ending is beautiful

If only that ending was actually aired on tv....

Piny 2007-09-23 17:36

suzuka is one top of my head, cant think of any thing else, ill edit wen i do

Keirn 2007-09-23 22:45

Sola I thought this was a really well done romance with fantasy elements.

A lot of people like Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien but I personally recommend staying AWAY from this one. I have never hated the main character of a show before this one...(just a warning)

MagicMango 2007-09-24 00:24

Fate/Stay Night

KholdStare 2007-09-24 03:07

While Kimi ga Nozomu Eien can have a fitting ending, the other half of the shippers will hate it.

Arkuatic 2007-09-24 03:48

saw Lamune and i have to say....I LOVE IT. Are there any similar anime to these?

Leedizzle 2007-09-24 05:46

I, third REC. Best 90 minutes you spent on an anime.
