Hi. I'm currently on a semi-shoujo binge and I was hoping for some good recommendations. My primary qualification is a I want a good romance with a tsundere. School life rom com is best (although when you come to think about it, almost all romance animes with a tsundere lead and romcoms). What I'm really looking for is an anime or manga with a resolved romance (or for an ongoing manga series, one that is steadily heading towards it). I'm sort of a sick of manga that never seem to end and the romance never gets resolved, nor do I want anime that spend 24 episodes skirting around the topic, only to leave you with a semi-ambiguous ending (admittedly, I still watched and liked anime like these... OURAN, anyone? But that's not what I'm looking for right now).
My favorite right now is Kaichou wa Maid-sama (both anime and manga are ongoing).
Actually, even shounen fare is ok with me, as long as the romance is given SOME focus, and resolved (examples: Bosou Renkin. Unfortunately, Full Metal Panic sometimes forgets the romance aspect. I'm waiting for Durarara to finish.. is it good?)
I've watched and read too many anime and manga to list here (i'm at my the office, and my boss is looking at me funny). But to list a few:
Kimikiss Pure Rouge
School Rumble (UNRESOLVED ROMANCE EVERYWHERE!!!!!)
Ouran High School Host Club(ditto)
Special A (The romance was sorta resolved in the last 20 seconds of the anime)
Itazura na Kiss (not tsundere, I know)
Toradora (Although I'm an Ami/Ryujji shipper, still nice resolution)
Kare Kano (Argh)
Kimi ni Todoke (Because it feels like there SHOULD be a 2nd season, it ended up being a coming-of-age anime instead of romance)
Bakemonogatari (great, but the romance isn't really the focus)
Dual! Parallel Trouble Adventure (Too bad it's harem, so unresolved)
H20 (No comment)
Myself; Yourself (it's primarily a drama, not a romance)
Please Teacher (no comment as well)
Shuffle! (I liked the girl he ended up with)
Haruhi Suzumiya (It's still unresolved!!! I'm waiting for the fansubbed movie!!! But I love it, endless eight and all)
True Tears (drama!!!!)
MARS (not tsundere, but resolved romance)
Kaichou wa Maid-sama (ongoing)
Dengeki Daisy (ongoing)
Beast Master (TOO SHORT!)
Otokomae Beads Club (TOO SHORT!)
Watashitachi no Tamura-kun
Five (I'm still reeling from the art)
Junai Tokkou Taichou (unfortunately, the scanlators are taking too long)
Hmm... I'll update as I remember anything I've already seen. But basically, to reiterate... what I'm looking for a nice anime with a resolved tsundere romance. Or the same but in manga form (either finished, or almost finished. The problem with manga is that it takes YEARS to finish).
Any suggestions? Thanks.
