Izumo -Takeki Tsurugi no Senki- (Drama, Romance, Fantasy, Martial Arts) - Has action in it so up to u
Iriya no Sora (Drama, Romance) - A short OVA of 6 episodes, but i really lilked
Kanon (Drama, Romance) - Personally like 2006 version more than other one.

Touch would probs be a good one. It has Romance, it has elements of comedy and is a drama, with a massive influence of Sport!

Its just over 100 eps long (over 10) and was released in the mid-80s. Don't let that deter you tho because its a great show

I'll second Midori no Hibi. Its a really good series and u really get into it.

I would recommend ouran and school rumble. both are school-type romances, which have a lot of comedy and they're both very good.

what i do NOT recommend is kimi ga nozomu eien. most overrated anime (romance) to hit the airwaves. do not waste your time with this, not only does it have so many loop holes, the actions of some of the characters will bewilder you.

I also read on manga I'S and Video Girl AI from Masakazu Katsura and I'S was definitly my favorite romance manga of all time.

I would like to know if you guys have some really good romantic comedy/drama anime like the one I mentioned to suggest me.

I would prefer some *long* serie (like over 10 episodes please) and please I want it to have an happy ending if its possible ! lol

Im pissed off about School Rumble not because I dont like it (haha surely not) but because I really, but really, but REALLY dont like the dumb Tenma and Harima is still grabing her leg like a dog ! WHEN is he gonna give up on her to be with the nice ERI-chan
lol

So I would like to heard from you guys about some suggestions please

Thanks a lot for your help.
Hmmm juz wud like to comment that from your OP I believe you like Shounen romance, so REC probably will not work for you, since its a Seinen romance. And there is nothing wrong with liking romance as a guy, especially Shounen romance titles since they are specifically geared towards younger guys.

There are also alot of Josei titles flying around, like Nodame Cantabile, Honey & Clover and Bokura Ga Ita for example and a few Shoujo titles (Nana etc). Yes they are about romance, but if you dislike them its because of the "flavour". Seinen, Shoujo and Josei romance is very different from Shounen romance.

I personally don't really like any Shounen anime, but I'm surprised no one mentioned Ichigo 100%, supposedly a top example of its genre (Shounen harem, romance). Do give it a try since a few of my friends are mad raving over it ^^

...Is this post serious? I can't really tell because I'm not brave enough to get past the first couple lines.

I do agree with the other guy in that KgNE is really really horrible. And I hope you keep trying to convince others otherwise... cuz I think you're helping us.

I'd like to add Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora. Not really a pure romance/comedy, but is heavy on the romance and has some moments of comedy to keep the mood light. It's also only 6 episodes, so it doesn't take up much of your time.

Hope I could help

I know just what you mean about Sukuran. Unfortunately, Harima will never see Eri as anything but a wall until twinkly Tenma is removed from his sight and Kobayashi stops hitting the reset button and using foils like Yakumo.

My highest recommendation for romance that actually goes somewhere is Ai Yori Aoshi. Don't let the harem backdrop fool you. Kaoru's heart clearly belongs to Aoi and their romantic moments are superlative, so touching and moving in a way I've not seen outdone yet by any other anime.

Hana Yori Dango is another great one, though this is a long series that requires patience. One of the finest heroines I've seen to date, Tsukushi goes through hell with the F4 first until winning the heart of unlikely suitor, bad-boy Tsukasa, and their relationship goes through so many ups and downs and in and out turns before finally stabilizing, and that not without the opposition by the most powerful person Tsukushi would ever meet.

Cardcaptor Sakura is cute and cuddly, but it will be a mistake to identify this as geared towards a juvenile audience, as some of its themes, in particular gender identity, is very mature. This is not a title wherein one would have to suffer through some unappealing element just to get to the romance. This is a well crafted magical girl story that is even unto today is unsurpassed and THE BEST in the genre, rich with dynamic characters many of whom have hidden identities and agendas, but reward you with highly gratifying interrelationships. There's a fascinating love triangle that is broken with tenderness and grace that you become sympathetic to the third wheel. The gender confusion is resolved with a profound explanation of the source of one's interest in the other, clarifying that character's real romantic interest and in the end expressing that love in a very powerful and sacrificial way. That my friend is Cardcaptor Sakura, a deceptively simple and juvenile magical girl show.

SDF Macross TV - Ichijou, Misa, and Minmei. Need I say more?

I'll have to knock down some other suggestions though.

Elfen Lied - Come on. Is anybody actually serious about this as a recommendation for a romance anime?

Love Hina - The anime is pretty bad. But the manga is pretty good. The core of the story is a love-triangle that is formed as a result of memory lapses between the three chief characters. However, the real shining star isn't the couple who end up in love, but the losing member of that triangle who loves both of them so much that she gives her own chance away, and for that she'll always be one of my favorite fictional characters. This is told profoundly and in a very touching way in volume 10.

Ouran High School Host Club - Too much going on here and not enough reciprocation by heroine Haruhi.

SHnY - Currently one of my favorite anime titles but no serious romantic development has occurred yet between any of the characters

School Days - Let's get serious. This show preaches about the dangerous consequences of being a man whore. There's no romance going on here whatsoever, only heartbreak and eventually homicides.

Onegai Twins - I think its prequel Onegai Teacher is a more qualified entry as a romance recommendation. While there is some romantic attraction involved, Twins is more about familial identity than a budding romance between possible siblings. A more real, though somewhat disturbing depending on your cultural upbringing, entry as a romantic drama between siblings is Koi Kaze, which is a painful look at the inner struggles of a man and his confusion.

Chobits - It's an interesting title that is a tangent of if not a sequel to Angelic Layer. But this too deals more with identity issues rather than actually pursuing the development of a romantic relationship. It's main theme is can a human and robot actually share love. This topic is explored by contrasting student/teacher relationships, sibling relationships (which is where we have one of the two Angelic Layer tangents), and two other but failed human/robot relationships. I'd go with Angelic Layer for more positive romantic pairings.

Zero no Tsukaima - Saito is a cool stud. He's a romantic failure however for never choosing Siesta.

Ichigo 100% - Junpei suffers from the same indecision as Saito above. But if you stick with the manga and you were among those like me who favored the Nishino relationship, then you might find the thematic recapitulation interesting.

Midori no Hibi - This too I can't see seriously as a serious recommendation for romantic content. But it is somewhat funny and should you follow this, you'd need to follow the manga to get a satisfactory conclusion.

Bokura ga Ita - Another title involving a man whore and a fatality, though not necessarily a homicide. If you like man whores, then you'll think that Yano like School Day's Makoto is very cool. Otherwise, this wasn't worth watching the heartbreak Nanami goes through for a horny loser.

Honey & Clover - This is a good, fun anime. However one of the romances just did not go the way I wanted it to.

KGnE - Too many people here without resolve and courage to do what is right make this too much of a let down. Haruka lost too much to get shafted the way she did. The alternate retelling that goes in her favor is hopefully better.

Maburaho - I'm not sure this is even worth commenting on.

Maburaho - I'm not sure this is even worth commenting on.
Ai Yori Aoshi would be to top choice like khryoleoz posted, its more a shy romantic anime and quite nice at times, although it has moments of being 2 girls fancying 1 boy but in this there is no man whore and it realizes that he truly love's Aoi.

Kimikiss- Pure Rouge - I would say this is quite romantic, well yeah its another school romance but this one is a little different.
The series has not ended yet as its on its 13th episode and the story is about a girl called "Mao" who comes back to her childhood place and meets her childhood friend Kouichi, it then goes around them together as friends with other people too,there is suttle hints that Kouichi fancies Mao and then latter on hints of Mao fancying Kouichi one of those best friends which should go into being a couple but may not as they both find partners.

Thats probably the best romance anime's i know of, but then you get the more comedy/romance like.

* Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
* Zero no Tsukaima (Its ok but something is annoying me about this being like harry potter which is not good)
* Maburaho (This is not that great its a bit different about girls wanting this guys gene but its quite bad)
* Chobits
* Shuffle! - (I have just bought this and the first few episodes are quite good)
* School Rumble
* Da Capo

I forgot about Kimikiss. That's a nice one. We're uncertain yet of what the ultimate romantic pairings will be, as the title is right now playing with possible combinations. I'm hoping they will end with how the pairings began, especially since Kai, Yumi, and Eriko put in so much work to change themselves. I find myself very charmed by Mao with her design (braids), upbeat character, and Haruna Ikezawa's performance.

Video Girl Ai OVA is another great one I forgot. The OVA covers only the first few volumes of manga which you've already read, but the OVA is a great adaptation giving voice to our core characters.

Both Fruits Basket and Kare Kano take their time, and you'll have to follow the manga in order to get closure because the anime cuts off half-way through the stories. However, Fruits Basket is not without reason the best selling shoujo manga and Kare Kano I would say is equally as good.

The following series are shounen/shoujo comedies that do have fun romantic elements to them even though they're not entirely romance titles.

Ultra Maniac - Though the bulk of romantic development is given to secondary characters Ayu and Kaji, both of whom are interesting in how similar they are, the surprising and even more pleasing development occurs between Nina and Hiroki. Yeah, you'll have to sit through a lot of silly magical girl fluff, but Nina and Hiroki are a joy to follow.

Tenchi GXP - Though not too many people I know liked this one, I like it better than the original Tenchi Muyo!. Unlike Tenchi who has expressed no real interest in any of the members of his harem, Seina is clearly interested in Kiriko, and she loves him back. It's up to Ryoko and Amane to get in their way. I also enjoyed this better because it expanded the fascinating world of Tenchi Muyo that we only got glimpses of in the original OVAs.

Super Gals - A little preachy at times with their values themes. Still, this is a gem with fun stories, bright colorful animation, and an sugar sweet adorable coupling of former bad girl Miyu Yamazaki and her savior cop Yamato Kotobuki. Miyu has a rich back story that makes you really sympathize with her and understand the foundation upon which Miyu and Yamato's awesome relationship is built. The Mami and number 2 pairing is also cute. Be prepared to be frustrated with Aya and number 1 though. The anime follows the manga pretty well, but you'll have to read the last two volumes of the manga in order to get a highly satisfying epilogue that the anime doesn't get.

Gurren-Lagann - A very unique giant robot anime. The most unique I've seen between Macross, NGE, RahXephon, Dai Guard, Goddannar, Gunbuster, Gundam, Gravion, Voltron, Dual, Nadesico, etc.

Hah I know exactly how you feel. I'm definitely cheering for Harima x Eri in the end. School Rumble is one of my favorites.

So back on topic, most of the good ones were suggested, but I have a few different suggestions.

If you want to laugh your brains out, like in School Rumble, try Seto no Hanayome. Lol watch it and prepare to feel sorry for the male lead, Nagasumi. It starts out with a bang and ends with a bang. Great series, with light drama, loads of comedy and romance. It is about a guy who is forced to marry a mermaid with a "yakuza" family. Sounds lame, but it is hilarious. I garantee that you'll laugh in the first episode.

Tenshi no Konamaiki fits the bill pretty well. It is very funny, with sprinkles of drama and romance. You might enjoy the comedy, but the art is weird as is the story.

Another one that wasn't suggested yet, Final Approach, which is a decent and underrated series. There is lots of comedy, some drama, and romance, though no definite couple at the end, which can be frustrating like in SR.

Seconding Da Capo, Kanon and Canvas 2. Hanbun no Tsuki something something for pure romance/drama, no comedy though.
