Nothing wrong with it, It's just the members of the website (and facebook) participate in the survey. The sample looks ok:

I'm too lazy to pick apart that list but
No Welcome to the NHK
No Tatami Galaxy
No 5cm Per Second
Why are nips so afraid of realistic romances? I mean NHK was a nice spin on "girl loves boring guy for no reason", but also showed how some romances are unhealthy and clingy.
Tatami Galaxy was a more natural thing.
5cm Per Second shows us about moving on, loss and not always having another chance.

Then again The Fountain is one of my favourite films, so maybe I have a different idea of romance to most people. It's jsut most romance is so generic and unrealistic.

Bentley Moore

Two of those don't focus on romance and 5cms is the exact same as the former two movies shinkai did, literally nothing special about it.

Should I watch or read kimi ni todoke?

Jonathan Williams

Except SAO
It's there user, showing romance doesnt need to be the focus.

It's just a link to a website. Hover your mouse over the button. Press the right click. Look at the list. Then get the hell out.

It's not that difficult. It's probably less disgusting than some of the doujins or hentai your mouse has clicked before, shown on your screen, and maybe even stored in your hard-drive ... ewww.

Is there even a single non kiddy romance anime?

Like ones where a "kiss" isn't the damn highlight of the series.

Why this shit so rare in anime but easier to find in manga?

WA2 was alright but i only purely enjoyed it on the last episode when that chick was btfo so hard.

Nips can't write romance for shit but people eat up since they self insert in to that shit.

Zachary Brooks
Zachary Brooks

Honey and clover deals with the unhealthy attractions of the one nigga chasing car accident-chan and the broad moist for him decently in its portrayal but the midget polygon of relationships was a mess bar maybe the little snot nosed nigga who was obviously not going to win but went around in what has been, at least in these kinds of stories, the only useful journey of self-disvovery.

Daniel Carter

Akagami no Shirayuki, Emma, and Katanagari

both Touch and Cross Game
That'd just be dumb, you could ll up half the list with the exact same thing if you included multiple Adachi.

Julian Cook
Julian Cook

This sentence is a fucking disaster. Work on your comma use and structure.

Jaxon Diaz

I just like how cute a lot of them can be. I've actually never self inserted into a romance once, mainly because they're usually 90% misunderstandings and being flustered, and very little pay off worth self inserting into.

Julian Gonzalez

you are literally the cancer of this world, kill yourself before it´s too late. I bet you also like boku no pico you fucking faggot holy shit

I was going to say, that one wasn't really a romance, was it? I dropped it halfway through, so I can't really say for sure, but it didn't really feel like one. How did it end?

Girl's childhood friend transfers in. He was the reason why girl has memory issues. They work it out. No romance over than subtle signs like jealousy between MC and main girl.

Oliver Collins

A masturbating deviant with problems and a dude who gets suck into her pace. They somehow eventually come to help each other through their problems while peeping on each other in the process.

Thomas Gomez
Thomas Gomez

Come on.

Isaac Powell
Isaac Powell

Well, yeah this looks like a Japanese young person's list.

One Week Friends, Plastic Memories, Chuni, SAO, and even SNAFU are there more because they are recent/popular rather than anything else.

I am glad they left off the following, at least:
- Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo
- Haruhi
- Love Hina (that one never deserved to make these sorts of lists, but was always there)
- Any Seasonal Battle Harem

Things that should probably be on there but are not:
- TWGOK. Some of the scenes are genuinely great although the overall quality is not.
- Nodame Cantabile
- Tatami Galaxy
- Katanagatari
- Spice and Wolf

Luke Williams
Luke Williams

Someone already said Nozoki Ana

Gavin Green
Gavin Green

Disagree, they are great at writing it but the market never rewards them for doing it.

So they start to write it... and then delay so unreasonably long that no one cares and everyone moves on to the next series.

I unironically agree with this, it's a masterpiece.

Carson Long

Last we saw the police came to talk to him so maybe he got done what he did to the pretty boy creep. But he was in a good place mentally so I guess I'd call it a happy ending for him.

Yeah the girl was still a bit of a mess in my view. Felt sorry for the glasses boy that fell for her. Baseball boy seemed conflicted too about his relationship.

Christian Flores
Christian Flores

I do wonder if he really did get the email of the girl from the SD card and is chasing her

Baseball boy was never into the other girl, she practically forced him to be in a relationship with her

Eureka 7

The love story between Renton and Eureka was pretty much the only thing that kept me watching the show. Though I stopped watching around mid-season 2 because I thought the show would do something retarded and make me stop watching.

And then I just never got around to it.

Kevin Howard

I'll ignore the fact that SAO is forth since they actually make a decent couple (at least in the first arc).

Real problem is that Nisekoi is anywhere on the list at all.
