Looking for a Romance anime/manga that goes beyond high school

Hey guys, just looking for romance anime or manga that goes beyond high school life.

An example of this is what I Just read, Kimi no iru Machi which goes from school to university to work. Another example, Itazura na Kiss.

I would prefer a more serious romance/drama primarily, comedy is fine but should not be the main focus and no harem (unless it's well done) or ecchi (does not mean it can't have nudity/sex, just no excessive fan service like panty shots).



Thanks!

Clannad + After Story of course.

Also Maison Ikkoku

Try Golden Time. It's in manga and light novel form. Also seems to be an upcoming anime series during fall.

Does it have to start in high school? If not, I strongly suggest Nodame Cantabile which begins in a Tokyo college-level classical music conservatory and follows its characters into the start of their professional careers.

Other shows with workplace romances include Planetes, REC, and Toshokan Sensou.

No preference on when it starts, could start with the workplace, or back from middle school as long as it progresses.

I forgot to mention more of the shows I'd already seen pertaining to my request (probably missed one or two but anyway:
REC
Nodame Cantabile (never got around to the last season, will do though)
Clannad and After Story
Welcome to the NHK

I'll be getting around to the recommendations I've yet to see, Maison Ikkoku I did try in the past but art was too archaic for me unfortunately.

I just went through Golden Time (manga), has more a comedic centering than I was after but was enjoyable nonetheless, looking forward to the anime.

Keep the recommendations coming, thanks!

White Album (anime) also sounds like what you are looking for.

SKip Beat (manga and tv series) sounds appropriate.
