I'm pretty big on romantic anime's but there aren't reeeally any that seems to go the distance. Why?? I know I'm not the only one thats feeling this. Someone should make a serious romantic anime .. it would explode! Thoughts? Comments? Anyone?

There are many that are fun to watch:

Clannad
Kimi ni Todoke
My little Monster

... just to name a few.
They're all different and memorable. You should give it a shot if you haven't seen them yet!

Go the distance? Way too easy to make a joke about that...but i've gotta do it anyways. It's called hentai, and I guess you can say things "explode" in it.

The back story is so dark that you can't appreciate the delayed romance aka the last episode.

This story is analogous to romeo x juliet (not spoiling it for anyone they both die in the end) it was more tragedy with a romance tease than a romance with a tragic background.

my 2 cents on the matter

btw guys incest is not the worst thing in world happening in anime since 2006 *the joke goes with the posts you'd get it if you seen this anime*

Japanese culture places a lot of importance on the Confession(tm). Hence we get an annoying amount of anime where the Confession(tm) is the climax rather than the beginning of the show. But yeah its especially annoying when a show delays the Confession(tm) for the entire series through a ridiculous amount of cliches, stupid misunderstandings and plot twists. Worse still when the pay off is they hold hands and the credits roll ;p

Writing the lead up to the Confession(tm) is a tried and true approach for anime. Especially considering 95% of "romance" animes are based in high school. Having to write a show that follows a real romance? That actually takes some talent. It requires icky emotions and things. You have to look more into josei for that kind of depth usually.

But josei doesn't get turned into an anime anywhere near as often as Generic High School Romance Comedy #827: Look! Panties!
