lol i guess romance adds flavour to the anime like a girl's one sided relationship with a boy is usually being used to potray comedy

i dont know for some...but for me...i would like any anime no mater what genre it is... as long as it has a bit of romance into it.... i think romance is the only genre common to all viewers... its as if anyone could relate to it.. even if you didn't actually had any first hand experience

I agree with you! Some of my favorite anime shows/movies have romance in them, but I get sick of it after a while. Especially in shows where the romance seems forced, or like they only added it because "All the other anime are doing it!" :p

I would love to see a really good anime that doesn't have romance in it. That might even give more time to focus on other parts of the show, like the characters or the plot. Which would be really cool, of course. :O

Romance should not be a requirement for animes. Evangelion did just fine without a lot of romance (Kaji and Misato are the only couple I can think of that were displayed with some prominence, and it was more comedic/tragic than romantic).
In all honesty, whether or not a series will require a romance or not will be determined by the story. For a highpowered mecha series, odds are you won't need a romance to move the story along. For a harem or ecchi series, odds are that you will require a romance to move the story along. For a tragedy series, a romance could be used to lighten the mood, or it can be used to darken the mood (death/injury of a significant other). For comedic genres, a romance can be used to set up the comedy, by setting up one character as the clown and the partner as some character who is slightly opposite, leading to humorous tensions and conflicts.

TL;DR: No. What will determine whether there is a romance or not is whether the story needs a romance to move it along or give it some atmosphere.

well romance in anime is mostly what gets fans wanting to watch the series more, in the beginning ur all about the plot and everything but then u get like connected to the characters and when theres romance it just makes u want to watch it more, its basically the main point in some fans point of view :3
