Not your average slice of life rom-com anime, these are sure to mix up your emotions with plots full of happy go lucky fun and soul-crushing despair. While there are many instances where the happiest of times take place, they can just as easily turn and gut punch you in an instant.

With tremendous storytelling, great vocal work and music that heightens every dramatic moment, you'll be taken on a roller coaster of emotions that will mix you up so bad, you'll get to the end of the anime and scream for another season.

Strap in, get ready to binge and make sure to have a box of tissues and comfort food ready. It's time to feel emotions again.

10. Toradora!

J.C. Staff

The story about a nice clean freak with a mean face and a small girl with a temper to match, Toradora follows what happens when Ryuji Takasu and Taiga Aisaka find out about each other’s crushes and make an agreement to help set each other up with them.

With Taiga crushing on Ryuji’s best friend, Yusaku Kitamura, and Ryuji crushing on Taiga’s best friend, Minori Kushieda, the two try numerous times to help each other but with very little success. The two frequently being seen together also leads to several students believing that they are now a couple, which further complicates their plans. Doing what they can to dispel the rumors, it was only a matter of time before their constant meetings and schemes make them realize their own feelings for each other.

Along the way, they both receive their own hilarities and heartaches. Providing many laughs and many tears, Toradora is perhaps the best example of a great romantic comedy anime.
