Younger girl having crush on older guy

I'm looking for manga or anime in which young girl, around middle or high schol, have crush on older male. It doesn't have to be in center of plot of whole manga, but it would be good if it was covered in at least few chapters.

Also, they don't have to end up with each other. Even implications that girl loves him, is jealous of other girls or is annoyed that guy doesn't notice her, etc. are fine. However, if they will end up together, that's fine too.
Also, no hentai. Ecchi is okay tho.

-Love Hina (Shinobu and Keitaro)
-Shugo Chara (Amu and Ikuto)
-Cardcaptor Sakura (Sakura and Yukito)
-Hayate no Gotoku (Nagi and Hayate)
-Zettai Karen Children (The Children and Minamoto)

I would be grateful for any recommendations.

Overt, obvious love for either the viewers or the characters to see or something more subtle, where neither the characters nor the viewers are sure that she likes him?

Both are fine, but I would prefer rather obvious one, for viewer at least.

You could try... uh... Amagami SS which recently ended, as two of the girls fall into the category.

Off hand would be Tatami Galaxy, although it doesn't get obvious until the later half when you piece together her motives.

However in recent memory, definitely give Cross Game a shot. Of course it's 50 episodes long and that part of the story doesn't really get the proverbial ball rolling until the last 4th of the series, but that's what you get with a first rate Tsundere.

If you're interested, Moyashimon has the reverse plot -- male college freshman with female graduate student.

I'd also suggest Kure-nai, though the characters are perhaps both a bit younger than you're looking for. She's seven, and he's sixteen. At least she's older than four-year-old Anzu in Hanamaru . Both series are definitely worth watching regardless.

Another possibility is Noein, where twelve-year-old Haruka develops a crush on an older guy named Karasu. The situation is rather more complicated than it first appears however.

Finally, you might try Nijuu Mensou no Musume, where a young heiress is kidnapped by a mysterious master thief.

Nodame Cantabile would likely cover this.

Nodame if I remember correctly is a year or two younger than Chiaki, both are in University/similar. If I remember at the start of the series, Nodame is ~17/18, Chiaki is ~19.
Total Anime watched= Enough. What can I say? I'm a convert...
PRAY FOR SPICE AND WOLF III and faster Yenpress novel releases!

Now,I'm the first to recomend Cross Game every chance I get,but while technically you're right,the difference in age is just 1 year.So I'm not sure it's what the OP is really looking for.

That being said Cross Game is still great

I'd second all of these, particularly Hanamaru because it's hilarious.

Moon Phase: fourteen-ish old vampire girl follows twenty-ish occult magazine photographer home from his assignment. She can be somewhat clingy. One of my all time favourites.

(Note: I'm not sure, but I think Funimation's streaming version of Moon Phase is based on the DVD cut, which corrected some very noticeable instances of cheap or even outright missing artwork in the original TV cut. Just in case you needed another reason to go legit.)

Until death do us part - Little girl who can see the future is set on marrying the blind samurai from my sig, who ends up being her bodyguard for life. Features violence and gore, caution is advised if you're not up to it.

^ Minamike? o_O Huh? Whatever you smoking.. stop!

I'm in here to suggest one and only one title, only to see that its already been suggested and supported.

So here's another vote for hanamaru kindergarten score.

Also, I guess to love ru counts too.

They came first for sharks fin,I didn't speak up because I don't eat sharks fin.
Then they came for foie gras,I didn't speak up because I don't eat foie gras.
Then they came for Toro (bluefin tuna) sushi,I didn't speak up because I don't eat sushi.
Then they came for me and force me to be a vegan by that time no one was left to speak up.

Hakuouki maybe? It is based in Samurai times but main heroine Chizuru is youneger than the make. Though actual romance strikes more in season 2.

Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru might count I guess.

Heh... so would Neon Genesis Evangelion.

I suppose the Minami arc in The World God Only Knows would count. Only a few chapters though.

Cross Game - A Story of Love, Life, Death - and Baseball. What more could you want?

My Otome. Two leading characters fall in love with the same older guy.

Ristorante Paradiso, although the girl, who has a crush on a much older guy, is in her early twenties.
