because making them too long would end up boring, romance is pretty much always the same, but there's always a little something that get people to like it or not, abusing it would be stupid.

Why would you want them long?

All the different love situations are only decent when it is in a short period time and not dragged out. <_<
Though, usually I can't survive a dim-witted love triangle with obvious parings for longer than like 12 episodes ,_,

well, sometimes it gets boring when it always focuses on romance..
i like romance but when the story revolves around it and it has like a hundered plus episodes it will get boring..
it's ok to be long.. just make sure the genre isn't just romance, so that it'll be more interesting

Its for the good of the anime and the watchers. Would you want a romance anime with at least 100+ episodes? That took them long enough already.

For a romantic anime to be long it'd probably end up torturing the main character going for the guy/girl for way too long. Like, for example: School Rumble and Ah! My Goddess.... It's difficult to have a romantic anime with the hi-light of one season being holding hands or something......

Or, like in Lovely Complex.... They progress everything too fast and after that it's a couple of episodes of whatever nonsense like couple quarrels and stuff like that.

Plus, you never know when they're going to run out of money for the next season.... In that case, the characters never hook up. I think shonen anime tends to have more money for a lot of stuff including more merchandise and episodes.

i agree.. too much romance in a long series will become boring.. but if its mixed with something like comedy or action maybe it woulld be nice

Pretty much, the longer the season is, the more they torture the main character, which gets kind of depressing.

I've watched that too with lots of skipped episodes though.
I think it focuses more on the comedy.

i agree that they concentrated on comedy than romance but the whole series started because of the romance @_@
