And yet another romance/drama thread , but not quite the same :P
Greetings and Salutations !
I'm looking for some specific type anime, as i do have a few points i require.
so here are the specifics:
I) story ; I do need a proper story to follow and be intrested in the anime .
II) character interaction ; basically , that it's fun to watch the characters interact with each other (be it the only 2 main chars even)
III) actual romance evident in the series ; basically , what most animes do is have 2 main heroes dance and prance around for an entire anime , then discover their love in the final episode and boom it's over.
to be honest the only 3 animes that pop into mind are KGNE , Koi Kaze and Rec (maybe ah my goddess does that as well , but i watched it several years ago so i dont remember all the details). where there is a romantic interaction with the characters during the anime and not just the final episode when they all find out they like eachother and live happily ever after. edit : chobits also comes to mind , a lovely anime
the only thing i truely hate is mecha. besides that , a bonus for nice animation. a bonus for intresting characters. giant bonus if there's any type of fighting involved (sword/gun play ). and im not a big fan of harem anime to be honest.
also not some passive/stupid/annoying male lead
if the anime is good enough i can live with any pacing , but i do prefer a proper pacing where something actually happens every episode :P
damn , im picky :P but oh well , that's life. any help would be much appriciated

These series actually show the characters dating, as boyfriend/girlfriend and in relationships as a couple. Some are anime, some are manga.

Yano seems carefree, but had a past, his ex-girlfriend who cheated on him was killed, and he had sex with someone close to his current girlfriend, Nanami. Nanami is fascinated by her boyfriend, Yano's past, but is also scared by his behavior changes. Great dialogue, realistic romance.

Spice and Wolf. All about the growing depth of the relationship of the two main characters as they travel and the interactions are superb. The story starts off with them meeting and things unfold from there. Whilst this stops the entire series being fullfronted romance, there are more than enough 'dawwww' moments as they get closer. This may make it too early days for you, but the series does make up for that with the banter! The two do make it pretty obvious how they feel though, even if not always to the other.
And yes I do recommend it a lot as I love the series and main characters.
