We are dealing with a broad spectrum of the world of anime. If you believed that anime was all about mecha, supernatural action, then reconsider. The genres of anime are diverse among them, but one of the genres that are extremely loved is romance. The romance genre is divided into numerous subgenres. There’s plenty of options for all. On one hand, you can find romantic comedies that are lighthearted and fun, while on the other hand, there are dramatic romantic comedies.
