I really think I understand you. I'm also quite keen on romance stories, and the same happened to me some time ago: I couldn't seem to find a good romance anime that I hadn't watched.

It's true that you have lots and lots of harem animes out there, but I am of the opinion that they aren't USUALLY (and I emphazise this to avoid fanboys flames) good romance stories, because the very concept of harem represents a frivolous treatment of love.

I would recommend you to switch to manga. There you can find much more romance stories. But before that I'll give two recommendations more:

- Try "Han bun no tsuki noburu sora". It's original, sweet and have a nice ending.

- Give a chance to old animes. You can find much better romance animes in the 80s and 90s than nowadays. And specially, you should try "Maison Ikkoku" and "Kimagure Orange Road", in my opion two of the best romance stories in anime.

How about Eureka seveN? It has a shounen-mecha-action shell, but at the core, it's a beautiful, beautiful love story with a really, really fitting ending.

And Eureka is possibly one of the best female characters of all time.

ive watched tons and tons of anime and my fav ones with a great story and with great endings are ones that are popular with others to

so i recommend you give them a try:

Onegai Twins, Hajime No Ippo (not excatly a love story, but the character has love for what he does and that is boxing. Best anime amoung all animes that exist... why do people not watch it or why does it take so much effort to get them to? Because its about boxing. I can already picture you in your home thinking im not gonna watch this or i dont like sound of it. Trust me... try it) , Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora, Zero no Tsukaima.

Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora, Zero no Tsukaima and onegai twins, seen em. And i prefer love for another rather than for a sport, suzuka is an exception since its entangled with love.

The closest show I can think of is the original To Heart, though the romance is much more understated. But the atmosphere and general themes are very similar.

For a much more bittersweet take on the same theme I recommend Byousoku 5cm.

As for recent shows? School Days is the most distinctive one out there. The romance is a truly beautiful train wreck and the ending is more than fitting.

there is a romance in that to . the problem is that the main character is shy and the person he loves is shy. so its sorta a weird situation that you dont see in other animes

SnH is a very entertaining piece of work, no doubt One i highly enjoyed. But, it doesn't have enough romance to recommend to someone asking for a beautiful love story. Past episode 2 that show is 98% comedy, 2% romance. I doubt it can truly be passed as Romance/Comedy ... more like pure comedy with a bit of romance every now and then. A very enjoyable watch, but for someone asking for a romance show ... he would be left fairly disappointed in the romance department.

tried nana and hajime, both are ok but doesnt seem as fulfilling as some of the other anime like suzuka where they endure hardships but inevitably end up together or REC

How about fushigi yuugi...

Well, a lot of people might be turned off from it, mainly because of the main character(female). But, if you like angst, plot twist here and there, then this anime is for you.
