10. Paradise Kiss

Paradise Kiss romance anime where bad boy falls for girl

What happens when a weirdo starts stalking you? Well, you run away and that is what Yukari Hayasaka did too but then she fainted on the way and woke up in a room full of fashion designers. Now, all of these fashion designers want Yukari to be their official model but Yukari has other ideas.

She escapes but they track her down and force her to accept the request. One thing about Paradise Kiss excels at is drama. It doesn’t give you any new or unique drama but the characters in this setting make the drama more interesting.

I know the art style might throw some off but remember how Devilman Crybaby had a weird art style but turned out to be really good, this is the same. If you love some unique characters plus an interesting romance that doesn’t happen in high school under cherry blossom trees, then this is the show for you.

09. Gakuen Alice

Gakuen Alice romance anime where bad boy love good girl

When I checked out this anime, the first thing I noticed was the love polygon tag. Until then, I didn’t even know that there was a tag like that. In the good old days, we called that harem, but it turns out Gakuen Alice was better than I expected.

You’ve got a nice supernatural magic system. You have an interesting set of characters plus a main character who isn’t very boring and instead of high schoolers we have little kids running the show this time. The first few episodes of the show are about two best friends reuniting and deciding to spend time in a weird academy and the romance kicks in later on.

The whole premise might be a bit too far-fetched but if you love those bad boy good girl dramas, then don’t forget to add this to your watch list.

08. Koikimo

Koikimo romance anime where bad boy love good girl

Once again, this is one of those controversial anime. Here we have a businessman falling in love with a high school girl and the businessman being another Bruce Wayne definitely doesn’t help to reduce that controversy.

At first, I thought the anime was going to use the controversy to push the story forward but it turns out the plot gets more depth as we move along. For example, it just starts off with a girl and a boy and then develops into a love triangle than a love rectangle. The show also does a good job portraying the businessman as an actual person and not another one of those rich playboys.

When you first watch this anime, you’re going to see this blonde dude and say dear god what a creep but as you move along, you’re going to say dear god what a romantic creep. There’s not much difference but there’s still good romance.

Devil's Line romance anime where bad boy love good girl

Come on, we cannot make a good bad-boy good-girl anime list without including at least one anime that copies Twilight. Here we follow the 22-year-old university student named Tsukasa Taira, who learns the existence of vampires when her friend turns out to be a vampire. While trying to discover more about it, she finds Yuuki Anzai and soon finds herself getting attracted to the boy.

Yuuki on the other hand is an open book always revealing his feelings and making Tsukasa embarrassed. The couple soon developed a forbidden romance with Yuuki desperately trying not to do what vampires normally do drink blood.

Romance Anime With Overprotective MC

Am I the only one who thinks the main character of this show looks like Shiki from Garden of Sinners? This is the reverse harem story and before you shoot the screen with a pistol, let me just say that this one is one of the good ones.

Honestly, this is one of the best ones; why? Because we finally have a female character who doesn’t act like a damsel in distress. She finally has the balls to kick her father’s balls and say no old guy and I’m marrying who I want not the guy you want.

The show may start off as a who should I marry anime, but it turns into a political game where everyone wants to backstab each other by the third episode.
