The holidays are coming up, and what’s better than catching up with some romance anime while you are free? From high school drama, immersive fantasy storylines, and musical journeys, here are three romance anime that you’re going to enjoy:
Nanami Momozono has more problems in her home life than the average high schooler. With a dead mother, she must rely on her absentee father. But when he loses everything because of debt, Nanami ends up homeless. On the streets, Nanami sees a man that is being harassed by a dog and helps him. After finding out her story, the man offers her his home. After discovering that the home is a run-down shrine, Nanami wants to leave but she is stopped by two shrine spirits and the fox familiar of the shrine, Tomoe. They thought that Nanami was the man she saw earlier, Mikage. He is actually the land god of the shrine. Tomoe leaves immediately after realizing that she is there to replace the absent god.
As Nanami doesn’t want to go back to being homeless, she decides to take her divine duties seriously. To do that, she needs the help of the fox familiar. Tomoe makes her seal a contract with him, so the two must roam the path of godhood together, but their journey won’t be easy. A demon wants to kill Nanami, a snake wants to marry her, and Nanami herself ponders over her feelings for Tomoe. Kamisama Kiss is a compelling, at times funny, romance anime that many fans of the genre enjoy.
