The best romance anime/manga you have ever seen/read

I am hoping to find a romance anime/manga that I will absolutely love and I hope that your favourites could become one of my favourites!! But please, no harems for me, they aren't exactly my cup of tea...
The romances I have seen so far are:

Skip beat (I have seen the anime and have just decided to read the manga)
Neo angelique abyss (I know it was harem, but this is how I decided it wasn't for me)
La corda d'oro (same as above)
Hanbun no tsuki ga noboru sora
And more, but I can't think of them at the minute...

I am fine with ecchi, yuri/shoujo-ai, yaoi/shounen-ai, horror etc
Thanks for any suggestions

Best romance anime for me:
Kaichou wa Maid-sama! - #1 for me, though it was a bit too long for my tastes but still great nonetheless
Kobato - this one is short of #1 spot for me because there wasn't too much "romance" in terms of hugging, kissing, etc but I love the story and the "romance"-type style it had almost made me cry T_T

I would go with True Tears and Bokura ga Ita as my two favorite romance anime.

Kimagure Orange Road (old school, yeah, I know)
Little House with an Orange Roof (this one is mature romance)
Kare Kano (everybody's favorite, more or less)

Koi Kaze (If you okay with incest story. Please note that I am NOT a fan of incest AT ALL , but this got decent story )

Kimagure Orange Road is my top suggestion.

Then, Maison Ikkoku if you want to see the most mature work by Rumiko Takahashi. It's coming from someone who usually have a low opinion of her works.

I second Maison Ikokku. Very Satisfying.

If you don't mind shoujo-ai then I'll do another promotion for Kashimashi, and for something slightly different there's Diamond Daydreams. It plays out more like a drama than a romance, but most of the stories center around couples anyway.

I'm saying that practically nobody feels that they're talented.
That's what makes us strive to improve.
As we strive to improve
we notice the people around us improving too
which makes us work even harder.
In a way, I guess you could say friends are like rivals

I completely, 100% agree with Dengeki Daisy. If you like that one, check out the other manga by Motomi Kyousuke because all of her stuff is awesome. Library Wars:Love & War is also an adorable romance manga. It has an anime, too, but it's less romance-focused. As for anime, Cardcaptor Sakura isone of my favorite romance ones.

I know you said you don't like harem, but Ichigo 100%. The first romance i ever read/watched AND I COULDN'T REGRET IT MORE. I never enjoy any other romance as much as i should because i keep comparing it back to ichigo.

For a more light-hearted romance series, try Amagami SS, not exactly harem as it initially seems.

If you favour a romance series with drama in it, Kimi ga Nozomu Eien or Koi Kaze may be a good start.

For Mangas, perhaps Suzuka might do, and of course, Ichigo 100% is definitely seconded.

To this day, the romance manga/anime I liked most is Lovely Complex, namely because of the originality of the characters and the scenario (a really tall girl and a really short guy), not to mention the characters looked mostly normal rather than bishounen, and I had quite a number of good laughs as well. A romance with a bit of comedy for good measure is what makes this one pretty special to me.

Thanks for all these suggestions ^.^ I will make sure I see as many of them as I can
As for Ichigo 100% I am definitely willing to try it out as long as the main character ends up with someone...
