For pure romantic comedy, Maison Ikkoku takes the gold crown. In fact Love Hina is often described as a (poor) remake of Maison Ikkoku. Trust me, it starts a little slow, but this is one of the best romantic comedies I've seen in any form of media.

Oh My Goddess is another decent romantic comedy, although of a different brand. More like Bewitched type humor and development- although before marriage.

A more actiony romantic comedy would be Full Metal Panic!, the Fumuffu season in particular is nothing but romantic comedy.

Some other romantic comedies include:
Hayate the Combat Butler
Ranma 1/2
Zero no Tsukaima
TenchiMuyo (particularly the Mihoshi special).

I also recommend you check out Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, which follows the manga story line (diverging from the first anime about 13 episodes in), has what I think is a much better plot, and will have more (though not much) romantic development than the first.

Shows that aren't really romantic comedies, but you'd probably also like:

Crest of The Stars
Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya
Chrono Crusade
Chrome Shelled Regios
Soul Eater
Read or Die
Shakugan no Shana
