What are the best fantasy romance anime?

Some things are just better in pairs. We’ve got salt and pepper, peanut butter and jelly, bacon and eggs, Bonnie and Clyde, Romeo and Juliet, and the list goes on and on. Similarly, fantasy and romance genres are a perfect match, complementing each other and giving us a wonderful story that’s full of love and adventure. I mean, just look at Super Mario’s success. Wasn’t everyone addicted to playing the hero and saving poor Princess Peach? We don’t need more evidence to establish how superior this combination is but we do need to tell you about the best fantasy romance anime you can enjoy.

On its own, fantasy anime is good. With all the supernatural elements together with almost undefeatable foes and jaw-dropping fight scenes, it has remained as one of the top fan favorites. But when some singer belted in an old song love is all that matters, they weren’t kidding at all. If you sprinkle romantic elements in fantasy anime, it ascends into the perfection that can easily dominate every anime. It appeals to anyone who’s into crazy made-up worlds filled with exotic magical creatures or power-wielding characters, maybe even both, and is at the same time a hopeless romantic. So if you’re on the hunt like our friend, Jashann Gelilang, for some romance fantasy anime that’s guaranteed to not only make you swoon in love but also take you on a magical ride, then you’re in good hands. We’ve got the best fantasy romance anime list complete with all the genre’s must-watch. Check out the list below and let us know which ones you like.
