These anime are full of heart and laughs

KAGUYA-SAMA: LOVE IS WAR

 

When it comes to romantic comedies, anime has quite a variety to choose from. Settings can vary from high schools to workplaces, and you can choose what kind of relationship you want to follow, whether they still be in the "will they/won't they" phase or even outright married already. Since there are so many options, we thought we'd present eight of the best romcoms Crunchyroll has to offer. You're guaranteed to find some of your future faves in these funny and cute anime!

 

The Quintessential Quintuplets

In most romcoms, you generally know who the love interests are and that, despite any troubles that come their way, they'll get together in the end. Not many start by showing you their marriage like The Quintessential Quintuplets does, though! Futaro Uesugi is down on his luck, inheriting his dad's debt and always looking for ways to make ends meet. That's when he's hired by a rich family to tutor their daughters — five identical siblings whose personalities couldn't be any more different. They don't want to study, and they don't like Futaro suddenly showing up in their life, so he has his work cut out for him. We know right away that this story will end with Futaro marrying one of them. But which one? And how could they possibly get there from outright hatred? This show is a hilarious tale that bridges the gap between those disparate events, with plenty of heart to be found along the way.

 

My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU

My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU is about Hachiman Hikigaya, your stereotypical misanthropic teenage boy who has been burned one too many times in both friendship and love to engage with people sincerely anymore. Unfortunately for him, one of his teachers sees right through his act and forces him to join a school club, which is dubbed the Service Club. There he meets the antisocial Yukino Yukinoshita and the bubbly Yui Yuigahama. Together they tackle incoming requests from other students. This involves anything from helping to put together school functions to sorting out inter-class drama, so there's no such thing as a boring day for the Service Club. Being forced to interact with their fellow classmates brings this trio of outcasts out of their shells little by little and they learn a thing or two about empathy and honesty in the meantime — and, just maybe, they’ll find out what it really means to love someone, too.

 

KAGUYA-SAMA: LOVE IS WAR

 

KAGUYA-SAMA: LOVE IS WAR

 

They say love is a battlefield, but no one takes that more literally than student council president Miyuki and vice president Kaguya of the prestigious Shuchiin Academy. From the outset, we know these two are madly in love with each other, but neither will ever come out and say it. They both believe, after all, that love is a game of chicken, and the first person to admit it is going to be the loser in the relationship for the rest of their lives. Thus begins an intense back-and-forth battle of wits between these two lovebirds, as they find increasingly ridiculous and hilarious ways to trick the other person into confessing their love first. Will one of them break, or will one of their friends finally get too sick of their antics to let things keep going? Find out, and have a good laugh, by checking out KAGUYA-SAMA: LOVE IS WAR!

Kaoru is a normal office lady, but every night she returns home to her loving husband Hajime, an anime-obsessed blogger! Their interests couldn't possibly be more different, but they find comfort in their differences, which often create funny situations whenever their worlds collide in unexpected ways. But their love for each other is real, so watching them support each other is a refreshing and always cute experience! Episodes are short but sweet, so you can take a quick break from your own busy day and watch Kaoru and Hajime get up to antics whenever you have a few free minutes.

Have you ever wanted a second chance at high school? That's exactly what is offered to NEET Arata Kaizaki in ReLIFE one day — an opportunity to take part in an experiment that de-ages him by a decade in an attempt to find solutions to his life's problems. Arata takes the chance and starts high school all over again, but between tests and social drama, that turns out to be easier said than done. Not to mention the dissonance of being an adult in a teenager's body! Luckily Arata finds support from his new friends — including some who may themselves be ReLIFE experiment participants — and a dramatic story unfolds that will leave you on the edge of your seat.

MY love STORY!!

You would be hard-pressed to find a more wholesome and heartwarming anime than MY love STORY!! Takeo Goda may be one of the sweetest guys you'll ever meet, but unlike his pretty-boy best friend Suna, he just doesn't have luck with the ladies. Not for a lack of trying, mind you, but girls his age just don't seem to be into his brand of hunky big boy. That is until he saves a girl named Rinko from being harassed on the train and Rinko immediately falls head over heels for Takeo! Unfortunately, both of them are nervous balls of emotion and pretty inexperienced with love, so MY love STORY!! follows Takeo and Rinko's adorable journey of discovery as they navigate their first real relationship together. It's cute, funny, and always a joy to watch — if you like romcoms, MY love STORY!! has everything you'd ever ask for and more!
