I'm looking for sappy, rot-your-teeth-out, romances. I love Clannad, Nagi no Asukara, and Anohana, but I'm not always in the mood for that much drama. And way too many anime romances end on some ambiguous "will they or won't they". I'd rather just read the manga or LN than watch a romance that ends with the couple still giving each other shy looks and working up their courage to confess.

In other words, I want conclusive, happy, sappy shows. Stuff like:

Amagami SS
My Love Story
Kimi ni Todoke
Snow White with the Red Hair
(Yes, I understand the manga of the last three are ongoing, but the romances in those three anime were all satisfying--as opposed to, say, Haganai, Actually I Am, or Nisekoi.)

I've mostly seen shows from 2005-2015 although I'm always on the lookout for hidden gems, And I'd be particularly appreciative of anything either older or more recent. Doesn't have to be on CR.

Thanks!

Great Passage- Its an anime with all adult cast the romance is slow and drawn out really well made. I think Amazon might have the rights still?

Ah! My Goddess

Better manga than anime, and way longer (and completed as of a few years ago)
Little drama (occasionally some, but you know the main characters love each other)
Just wholesome romance (not sexual either)

Your suggestion is so incredibly spot on... that AMG is already my favorite manga. :)

Thanks to all for your suggestions; a number here that I hadn't heard of before. I'll check them out!
