Ai Yori Aoshi - It features a dream woman who is perfect in every way.

Ayashi no Ceres - Be warned.. it's shoujou to the definition. Lot's of pretty people with conical chin, wavy hair, and sparkling teeth.

Asatte no Houkou - One of the better series in the romance genre.

Canvas 2 - Anything I say may give you enough clue that leads to spoiling.

True Tears - I liked it because it was very easy to predict how this show will proceed from one episode to the next and to the eventual conclusion.

Dual - Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy. The show is intended to be a parody to a famous scifi which ends up being a decent show under the romance genre.

Eureka Seven: Sci-fi with lots and lots of romance. Did I mention the series is 52 episodes long by Bones? Don't be intimidated by the length of the series. It's one of the best out there when it comes to capturing its audience.

Futakoi Alternative: Visually a magnificent series. The storytelling is just as innovative. It will satisfy the inner aesthetic part that appreciate unique style of storytelling. Romance a plenty.

Lovely Complex: Tall girl falls for the tiny dude who is very self conscious about his height. Comedy and romance go hand in hand in this delightful series.

Lamune: I love this show. It defines pacing, or the lack of it. Not everybody can appreciate this show, but I thought I would mention just because you are asking for a good romance series.

Kyo no Gou ni: This 5 episode OVA series focuses on middle-school-er. Funny and has romance.

To Heart: Another series that brings a smile to my face anytime I think about an easy-paced show.

I've seen a lot more, but those were the name came up to the surface of my head without much endeavor. I've also this nagging feeling that I've left out one very important name from the classic. If it comes, I'll post it here.

Go watch Honey & Clover right now. I'm appalled that no one mentioned it yet. One of the best animes ever IMO.

Kodocha --> I'm a very picky person when it comes to graphics, and for some reason hate old graphic anime. But this anime was the only "old graphicy" anime that make me totally hooked. Awesome anime, i highly recommend it.

Kamisama Kazoku --> At first, you wouldn't think it's a romance anime. But as you get into the anime, HA, there's plenty of dramatic romance moments to satisfy you. You might even cry (like me) if you're an emotional person. But anyway, the theme of romance is seen throughout the entire anime. Highly recommended also.

Basically, everything else that was on my list was mentioned already. But there's one more anime I just thought of that has some light romance in it, Library War. Don't think that the title is lame, cuz this anime was totally awesome.

If you liked shuffle you'll probably like Da Capo as the two are similar in a sense. Both deal with schools with magical happenings, and some of the chars look sort of similar and act sort of similar. They are still two totally different animes though. Also Gift Eternal Rainbow is again along the same lines as Da Capo and Shuffle so you may want to look at that too.

I'm semi-shocked no one has mentioned Shakugan no Shana yet. It's an action/romance anime with a (at first) childish main char who you see trying to deal with her first love and all sorts of other things.

School Days also has a good romance to it. Although there are a few messed up things in it it shows just how far some people will go when they are in love.

H2O ~Footprints in the Sand~ is another good romance, although again there are a few messed up things in it. But not in the same way as School Days.

I've heard about School Days, and I'd rather not be traumatized for days upon finishing it xD

I really don't think you'll be traumatized upon finishing it tbh... well, ok I actually don't know you and what may "traumatize" you... But while it is a little messed up,

Spoiler for Slight Schooldays Spoiler:


It's really not THAT bad, but it will send for a bit of a trip as you wont really know who to feel "sorry" for as things keep changing. Personally I think the ending (and series in general) to Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien was more of an emotional trip... School Days is just more like "I can't believe that happened!" type thing/trip imo.
