This genre is relatively popular compared to the other genres. This genre shows a detailed romantic relationship from star to finish between two characters. This genre is usually mixed in with Comedy and Harem, which are becoming more and more common in the industry. Some series are so popular, that they have followers that somewhat have built a connection between them and one or more of the characters.


An example of this is the series “Clannad”. With the manga published in 2004, this romance-drama takes place at the Hikarizaka Private High School, a fictional school located in Japan. Here, the story revolves around Tomoya Okazaki, a young man who is labelled a delinquent in his school at the beginning of the story. That being said, he is very selfless, as he does not ask for much from others in return for what he does for them.

Here he meets Nagisa Furukawa, the main heroine of the story. Nagisa, like Tomoya, attends Hikarizaka Private High School; she is a soft-spoken girl who has both a low self-esteem and low self confidence, which generally causes her to rely on those who are around her.

This series tells the story of how these two progresses from friends to lovers. The characters have solid backgrounds that explain unanswered questions like what caused Nagisa to have low self-esteem. Mixed with comedic moments, this makes a good series to watch.
