The best romance anime are the ones where romance isn't the primary aspect. A good example of this is Bakemonogatari.

Because japanese values are garbage and completely different from western countries', so what makes a good romance to them doesn't necessarily mean a good romance to 'us'

Their entire culture revolves around repressing your feelings and individuality to preserve your honor and hide your shamelessness, thus the second someone even mumbles an 'I love you!' it gets blown out of proportion (from our perspective)
How can you expect them to understand romance?

>>183223521
So we have a Takao who is a student that loves designing shoes, one rainy day he mets Yukino in a garden and without even talking he decides to start skipping classes and going to met her without saying even a word to her.
They eventually start a conversation and start getting along.

Then we know Yukino is woman that finds herself lost/incomplete in life (we don't know why desu but she is clearly sad and frustrated) then by art of magic she ends up being one of the school teachers of Takao, yes, even ALL the students in that school knew her except for him, yes, the same school.

What is up next is more forced drama of him telling her DAISUKI and she rejecting him but then WOW she suddenly realises and goes after him like every fucking cliche movie ever but WAIT he is still there and he now starts giving a monologue about his failure in life and saying he hates her?
By this point the forced drama cringle was too much to handle but then Yukino jumps into his arms and starts crying.

The end

I guess the best romances it are the ones that balance normal emotions and reactions without forcing too much drama. Specially if is adults. Teenagers being dumb is normal. Everyone has a quota of dumb shit when teenager. It is just that Japanese exaggerates that to sex offender levels and retarded actions.
>>
>>183224005
Well even tho it was forced and i didn't like it wasn't as nonsense as "Kumo no Mukou, Yakusoku no Basho", that shit is beyond words.

For me Tsuki ga Kirei is definitely a great love story.
Re Life has a nice love story too but it isn't only focused on that, same with Plastic Memories (even this show has a lot of flaws)
ef: A Tale of Memories is considered to be really good too, for me it's average/good.

Golden Time/Kimi no Iru Machi started good for me but ended up being a total disaster.

Not him, but I've actually lived in Japan for years, and he's not too far off the mark. They're incredibly repressed and cold, distant people compared to a lot of other countries on average.

Any baka gaijin that has stayed at least a year in Japan can sense this, Japanese people even have problems when it comes to just friendships, it's so cold and formal, even among young students, it's miles away from how it's portrated in their cartoons.

I have a few really good friends who I talk to very frequently and don't have to walk on eggshells around, which is nice, but even with them the idea of simply hanging out at someone's house and watching TV is a crazy concept. The younger ones at least have self awareness, which makes talking to them about stuff easier.

Yup, fucking this, It's insane but for them the fact of just picking the phone and call a friend to hang out it's unthinkable, they will just hold you and give you an appointment for the next week. "Want to hag out tonight?. Uhh let me see i think im free the next tuesday at 8PM"

Shit writers, but more fundamentally, I think it's very hard to write a pure romance to be ~12 episodes (or more). 1 - 2 hours a perfect amount of time to show the plot of boy and girl meet, get to know each other, and eventually reveal they both like each other. How do you pad that out for another 4 hours? Most romance anime boil down to episode 1: boy and girl meet, 2 - 11: they get to know each other, 12: they confess. The plot is poorly weighted, and the episodic nature of anime is purely a negative. This is why most memorable anime romances happen as a side plot to other happenings.

I've heard about the rescheduling thing, but never actually dealt with it before. Funny enough, I just talked to a friend today who didn't want to see a movie when I asked him to, but then got mad at me for not inviting him out to dinner with friends visiting from outside the country. Trying to figure out what things people do or don't want to talk along to is tough.

Good romance are rare but not only in anime, even in western movies or tv series you struggle finding a good one.
Its just something hard to write no matter how much experience you might have had.

I actually also just finished that now. I had Your Name for a long time but never watched it on disc, but found out about Garden and watched it first since they are connected.Your name is better but the character's from Garden of words make appearances in Your Name. The guy is hardest to spot but the girl is on the nose. Both are great but YN had a longer thus more fleshed out story.

Because the author is less restrained by any sort of middleman meddling unless we're talking about extremely popular titles.
For example i can't imagine Taishau Wotome Otogibanashi ever getting anime adaptation simply because it's a straightforward cute romance through and through with no serious relationships drama or shipperfaggotry involved which means it's harder to market and cannot cater to multiple groups of mentally damaged tards who could boost its sales. If kyoanus was ever to adapt it, for example, they will stuff it choke full of yuribaiting or fujobait or some other disgusting shit.

That's because it was never supposed to be a love story. At least not in the way us westerners think about it.

Makoto Shinkai himself it was supposed to be about the traditional meaning of the word 愛. Which is the longing for companionship.

Both of them were lonely people that found happiness keeping each other company. But since the kid had no life experience he confused this for romantic love. More than anything, that whole story is a cautionary tale on why relationships with large age gaps are a bad idea.
