20. My Little Monster

My Little Monster romance comedy anime

This story follows two odd high school students. There is Shizuku, her intelligence level makes it easy for her to get top-tier grades. However, she is mostly apathetic towards her classmates. Her behavior might appear quite cold to some but that’s just how she usually deals with people.

Then there’s a boy named Haru Yoshida, who doesn’t really know how to interact with others. He got into a fight right on the first day of school and then stopped attending the classes. A troublemaker if I must say.

Now considering how they both don’t really fit in with everyone else, they start finding solace in each other’s company. Also, did I mention, how Haru just straight up confessed to Shizuku the moment they met. An awesome rom-com anime that you should definitely watch.

19. Be My Wife!

Be My Wife Romance Comedy Anime 2022

Even though the anime’s title is Be My Wife, it’s more about how a girl struggles to live among a noble family while being chased by a guy who wants her to be his wife. This anime is about a girl named Su Luo, a special agent reincarnated as the fourth lady of a noble household.

Everybody hates and despises her and the only one who helps her is this noble lord called Jin, who is obsessed with her. With the help of Jin, Su Luo participates in a test of the holy empire which shows she has immense potential within her.

Now the people who scorn her want to kick her off and she has to fight back. Even though romance and comedy are shown as the main strengths, this has an interesting political backstory as well. You know that good old stuff with noble’s rich ladies and political backstabbing is definitely something you should watch.

18. Kud Wafter

Kud Wafter Romance Comedy Anime 2022

Any little buster fans here, yes. Whether you’re a fan of Little Busters, this show will definitely hit you in the right spot if you’re a rom-com fan. I mean, come on, the main premise of this involves the boys living in the girl’s dormitory because of a problem in the boy’s dormitory, and this is an anime we’re speaking about, so you know what sort of accidents are about to come.

Even though there are several major characters here, the one we follow is Riki Naoe, a guy who gets thrown into one of the noisy club rooms and gets saved by a girl called Nuomi.

If you’ve watched Little Busters, then this anime tells how Riki and Nuomi started their relationship. It’s cute, wholesome, and gives off some Anya vibes, so make sure to check it out.

17. Mother of Goddess Dormitory

Romance Anime Where MC Is Forced To Live With A Girl

This got released the same year Redo of Healer was released, so it’s no surprise if you haven’t heard about it. The redo of Healer gave us enough controversy to last an entire year. This anime is about a guy sharing a dormitory with five university girls who all have problems.

I mean big problems, like a couple of other animes on this list, mother of goddess’s dormitory is not a serious anime. It’s some anime you can watch while you’re chilling in a hot afternoon.

Needless to say, it’s five girls and one boy, so you know what that means. But our main character has one single love interest, so it doesn’t go the harem route and one of the things that plays to this anime’s advantage is the colorful cast. Each of them have their own quirks and their own personalities which makes this anime really interesting.

16. Wave Listen to Me

Wave Listen to Me

Are you tired of high school girls? Are you tired of the same romance cliches repeating over and over again? Then wait no more my fellow otaku because this is the show for you. Here we have a girl who already suffers from a bad breakup and the next thing she knows, her breakup speech is on live radio.

She rushes off to see what the hell is going on and it turns out one of the people she spoke to about the breakup works in a radio station. This thing leads to that and the next thing you know our girl Minare Koda is a radio hostess.

The anime follows her trying to balance her personal life with her work life. Yup, this is a bit heavy on the drama but you get tons of comedy and romance along the way as well. Just expect a lot of screaming.

15. Spicy Girl

Spicy Girl Romance Comedy Anime 2022

The good news is that there are 32 episodes in this anime, and the bad news is all the episodes are only eight minutes long. In spicy girl, we follow Xu Xiao, an actress who was sidelined back in her childhood because of her scary personality and now gets casted as the villain in all of her roles. She hates it and this leads to a conflict with her manager.

Meanwhile, a guy named Xiao Jian, an inventor and actor, notice this conflict. Let’s just say this guy is one of those people who cannot keep his mouth in check, so Xu has to now silence him with a contract before things go too far.

If you know about Made-sama, then this one is quite similar to that. The only difference is that this is a Chinese anime and the main couple are adults. Kind of a good change, don’t you think.

14. Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It

new romance anime of 2022

Once again, let’s speak about an anime airing this season because then you can binge it along with the fan base but this one already has a full season so you’ll have to do some binge watching.

Science Fell in Love explores the scientific side of love in a really funny way. This anime is set around two scientists from Saitama university as they have made it their mission to try and solve the mystery of love.

This includes weird experiments, really awkward dialogue, and one of those crazy sidekicks to add some comedy to the series. The good news is you don’t need your university medical degree to understand what the hell is going on in this anime. Just go for the romance and the comedy and those weird chemical equations.

13. Oresuki Are You The Only One Who Loves Me?

Oresuki Are You The Only One Who Loves Me Romance Comedy Anime 2022

Can a guy lose this many times? I don’t know. This guy right here got rejected by his best friend, his crush, and then had to sit with a crazy girl wearing glasses. The problem is both our main character’s childhood friend and his crush love his best friend and he thinks they love her and it turns out his best friend isn’t such a bestie either.

Oresuki shows how one misunderstanding can lead to another and turn one hopeful haram protagonist into the story’s villain, but is he the actual villain of this story? Nope.

One of the things I love about Oresuki is how it twists the usual tropes during the premise. Instead of the main character getting girls like high gaming scores. This time, the girls actually hate the guy and he has to now figure out how to make things right and just keep your eye out for the crazy library girl too.

12. Taisho Otome Fairy Tale

Taisho Otome Fairy Tale Anime With Married Couples

This is one of those cheerful girls, depressed boys sort of love stories we get in a while. We have one guy who is kicked out of his noble family and lives the rest of his days in depression. Then an angelic cutie girl lands on his doorstep and her guy thinks well whatever, I’m gonna die anyway. Then the girl says she’s supposed to be his wife and then starts giving him some optimism.

Honestly, I learned about this anime from the manga of the same name and does a great job showing the characters’ inner struggles.

I know this is labeled as a comedy anime and while there is plenty of comedy skits, there’s also some genuine emotional tension going around the story as well. So, if you need some sad boy happy girl love comedy, then here’s the show for you.

IMDB(7.4)

Dubbed – No

Season – 1(12 Ep.)


11. Waiting in the Summer

Waiting In The Summer romance slice of life anime

The story follows a memorable and exciting summer tale where a few high school students come together to create a film over the summer break. But as wise men of all times have said; it’s not about the end product, it’s about the journey that takes you there and the friends you make along the way.

So in this context, it isn’t just about creating the film. It’s about something much more important. It’s about the time they spent together, the feelings they shared, the summer romance, and how they got through it all together.

I’d say if you want to go back to the days when life was simple and reminiscent of your high school memories, this anime is it.

10. Tsuredure Children

Tsuredure Children

This one is a tad bit different than the other animes on this list. It’s mostly episodic. Each episode is just about 12 minutes long and they all center around short stories of not just one but many couples.

In every episode, the couples whose story is being told are the main characters. That’s right folks; this anime is all about portraying the young high school love along with the struggle that comes with it. It’s hilarious yet adorable.

09. Maria the Virgin Witch

Maria the Virgin Witch romance comedy anime

This story revolves around a certain cute and strong witch named Maria. She ends up using her magic a little beyond the threshold and is told by the heavens not to use her magic anymore. Not only that, if she so much as loses her virginity, she’ll lose her ability to use magic permanently.

However, this wasn’t enough to stop Maria. She was using her magic to try and stop a war between two strong nations and she won’t stop keeping the situation in control. She can indeed be stopped but the only way to do so is by taking her virginity away and they try to plot just that. But will maria let them?

Well, this anime is an unorthodox take when it comes to rom-com stories and I am sure it will be quite refreshing for you all to see unless you have already seen it, of course.

08. Brighter Than the Dawning Blue

Brighter Than the Dawning Blue romance comedy anime

Yoake Mae Yori Ruriiro Na is an anime that you almost never hear about. It’s an underappreciated rom-com in every sense of the word and if you are a fan of such stories, I genuinely recommend that you check this one out.

In this anime, both romance and comedy exist in perfect harmony. The story takes place in a reality where both the earth and the moon are connected with each other.

The moon princess comes down to earth and attempts to live with the teenager on earth. It is some sort of tradition that must be maintained. It is because of this tradition that a beautiful love story between the princess and a boy named Tatsuya begins.

Here we have an anime that tells the story of a few students who live together in a dormitory as eccentric misfits. A second-year student named Sorata ends up having to move into this dormitory because of circumstances. He has a hard time adjusting to the odds of it all.

The fellow dorm mates include a big ball of energy named Misaki. She loves to animate. There’s not to be underestimated playboy named Jin, a programmer who we barely ever get to see, and a few others who include the door manager and the art teacher. Soon enough, his already unpredictable daily life takes another big turn when a world-famous artist named Mashiro also moves into the dormitory.

She becomes oddly familiar with him and so the story begins. It’s a hilarious but emotional, funny but heartbreaking tale of these interesting individuals and the thing we call friendship.

05. Love After World Domination

Love After World Domination new romance anime of 2022

Love after world domination is about a girl who wants to conquer the world and then there’s a boy who wants to stop her. Even though that’s what they show to the outside world, they’re actually lovers. The boy simps for the girls so badly and the girl is your typical tsundere who blushes and says, ” Fine, I’ll date you, but it’s not because I like you, okay.

This is currently airing anime so if you feel like watching it, you can start binging the episodes that are released right now and wait for the last few episodes of the season in the coming weeks. Just don’t expect this to be another Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

04. Golden Time

Golden Time romance comedy anime

If you are tired of the same old high school cliches, this anime is just the thing for you. The story takes place in a college. The protagonist named Tada Banri is a college freshie. He came to Tokyo to restart his life after last year’s accident that gave him amnesia. Since then, he hasn’t been able to recall anything from before the accident.

Now as a college student, he becomes friends with a tall guy named Mitsuo Yanagisawa and he is instantly puzzled by the guy’s situation. Mitsuo has a fiancée who he doesn’t really get along with very well. Even though the girl herself is quite the bombshell.

I’d say this anime is an interesting contrast between the rom-com and drama. It’s very well done and genuinely compelling to watch. So be sure to give this one a try.

03. My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU

Anime Where Everyone Hates MC

A young man named Hikigaya Hachiman is a loner. To most every other person in the entire school, his existence is trivial and the man himself has grown accustomed to it all. He considers youth lie and evil. Though when his beautiful teacher reads his essay, she is rather concerned.

She decides to make the boy join the volunteer service club. The only other member is an apparently cold but inherently kind young girl named Yukino.

Before long, they are joined by a cheerful girl named Yui and just like that, their lives and those around them begin to take interesting unexpected turns. Just what is it that awaits them at the end of this supposed lie called youth? Watch the anime and find out.

02. Shikimori-San Not Just a Cutie

Kawaii Dake Ja Nai Shikimori-San anime new spring anime of 2022

Here we have another anime that is currently airing and it turns out this time, the girl and the boy are already dating so we don’t have to go through all of that drama again. On the outside, Shikimori seems like the perfect girlfriend anyone can have but you need to spend some time with her to see her darker side. But it turns out her boyfriend Izumi loves to be around when that happens.

What’s even greater is how the girl seems to be 75 tsundere and 25 yandere, sort of a girl who is way too overprotective about the guy.

This is one of those best girl types of shows where the girl comes and conquers the whole anime fandom just in a couple of episodes. Like Mario did last season, so if you need something good with a mixture of romance comedy and girlfriends to act like bodyguards, then watch this one.

01. Kaguya-sama: Love is War

comedy anime 2022

Kaguya-sama Love is War is an anime that has gradually established itself as a staple of the rom-com anime. Confessing love is hard for some. It might as well be the most difficult challenge of their youth.

However, what if you put your pride on the line and make it a challenge as this anime has famously put it love is war and the one who confesses first loses this war. The student council president named Miyuki; the vice president named Kaguya are both active participants engaging in this war.

Miyuki is not just the student council president; he is also the top-ranked student in the entire nation. Kaguya on the other hand is the heir to the Shinomiya family as well as a mutant prodigy who excels in every domain imaginable.

The characters that company them with their everyday student council activities include the cheerful secretary named Chika and the treasurer named Ishigami. I’d say this is an extraordinary series that you all would genuinely adore and enjoy.
