looking for a good romantic anime to watch with the gf

Both of us are off ill with chest infections and looking for a nice romantic anime/s to watch while we get back to good health. Requirements would be that there are romantic themes from the start and nothing too whacky/slapsticky. Tear jerkers are welcome but happy ending preferred.

Good examples we've already seen are:

Amagami SS - Fantastic anime we went through all 26 episodes in a weekend

Kimi ga Nozomu Eien - Really moving mature story.

Sort of things I'm not after:

Clannad, Kanon, Toradora

Nothing wrong with those animes, all are amazing in their own way but generally just have romantic themes or in Toradora's case drags on a bit too much.

Any recommendations?

Yoake Mae yori Ruriiro na: Focused ONLY on romance/drama, and it's about the story of a boy and the Moon princess. Moon and Earth have been in a war, and at the moment they are in a state of peace/indifference. The moon princess, like her mother, wants to unify Earth and Moon, will eventually fall in love with an earthling, and... You will surely enjoy it. The story is very simple. It's not slow as clannad kanon or Toradora(that only evolves during the last 3 episodes), and it's only 12 episodes. Will make you cry during some scenes, but got a happy ending.

Your girl might fall in love with me for having suggested this anime, lol


KissxSis will strengthen up the bond with your girl HAHAHAAH. You'll thank me, my good sir.

I'll recommend Saiunkoku Monogatari. The romance begins with the first episode, but the heroine has a lot more on her agenda than falling in love.

My other suggestion would be REC. You can watch the entire show in an evening.

Voices of a Distant Star

Five Centimeters Per Second.
Both of these are by the same guy and are tear jerkers. If you can only watch one of them pick 5 cm/s

Suzuka. Sports themed.

Kimi No Todoke.

Nodame Cantabile. Music based. I would watch this one first.
In the beginning the Universe was created. This has made a lot of people very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.

Maison Ikkoku The classic romance anime.

Cross Game - might be a bit slow for your taste but I like it as a romance.

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

Baka to test to shoukanjuu - It is an extremly funny anime with some romance. There are no real story in this anime, but a complicated story wouldn't fit.
However, Don't miss this! You will not regret watching it

You could also try Diamond Daydreams, which is more drama and less romance but a relationship of such a nature is usually within each story.
