From tender love stories to charming comedic escapades, this season's lineup is sure to leave you swooning and craving for more. In this blog article, we present another carefully curated selection of the Top 5 Romance Anime streaming this summer!

5. My Tiny Senpai

Starting off our list this Summer is the newly-released Anime adaption, My Tiny Senpai! Sweeter than a spoonful of sugar, this easygoing, office romance-comedy series is perfect for the casual Anime fan. Our two protagonists, Takuma Shinozaki and Shiori Katase, make for a delightfully endearing pairing with one teasing the other in a playful way.

Unlike other RomComs with similar premises, My Tiny Senpai isn't afraid to throw in doses of adult humor and perfectly exemplifies what a wholesome, mutual attraction looks like in the workplace. If you are looking for a comfortable, heartwarming series to binge this summer, My Tiny Senpai may be for you!

4. Rent-a-Girlfriend Season 3

Next and most controversial on our list this summer is the long-awaited Season 3 of Rent-a-Girlfriend! This series is bound to cause some mixed feelings as our love-to-hate protagonist, Kazuya Kinoshita, is back again with another season of comedic misunderstandings, juggling feelings, and raunchy plotlines.

For fans who are looking for more drama in their life, Rent-a-Girlfriend will without a doubt keep you engaged (whether you like it or not). With a great vocal cast and a variety of attractive character designs, it is no wonder hundreds of thousands of fans have continued tuned in for Seasons 1, 2, and now 3, as Rent-a-Girlfriend remains a popular, fun Anime choice.

3. Masamune-kun’s Revenge R

Up next on our list and one I am personally excited for is the continuation of Masamune-kun's Revenge R! With Season 1 originally airing in 2017, long-time fans and manga readers have been waiting patiently for Season 2 and the conclusion of Masamune's revenge on his primary love-interest, Aki Adagaki.

With a series of improbable coincidences and plot twists, Season 2 starts off with a heated class field trip to Paris for our handsome protagonist. Founded on a unique premise for a harem romance Anime, this series does not fail to disappoint when it comes to lighthearted fun and love shenanigans!

2. Horimiya: The Missing Pieces

Taking the number 2 spot on our list is the next Season of Horimiya: The Missing Pieces! Back again are our lovable band of high school friends led by the vibrant Kyouko Hori and shy Izumi Miyamura! This dynamic duo has been captivating audiences since the manga's original release in 2007 with their genuine interactions and endearing personalities.

As one of the most anticipated Romance Anime adaptations in recent years, Horimiya continues to deliver with a fine balance of simplicity, comedy, and drama. On top of the chemistry between our two main characters, a strong cast of support charracters, each ripe with their own youthful romance, makes this series an all-around delight.

1. The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses

Finally, last but not least on our list this summer is the adorable, new simulcast and Anime adaptation of The Girl I Like Forgot Her Glasses! This series is a truly wholesome story of two high schoolers, Ai Mie and Kaede Komura, as they navigate their blossoming feelings towards one another. Follow along as Kaede helps his deskmate and new crush, Ai Mie, navigate high school half-blind after constantly forgetting her glasses!

The cute, innocent antics of this couple in a low-stakes environment makes for a enjoyable, feel-good RomCom Anime for all ages. Paired with the beautiful artwork and attention to detail, this story is sure to warm your heart, which is why it is at the top of our watch list this summer.

With that, we come to the end of our curated selection of captivating romance anime for the Summer 2023 season! We sincerely hope that this list has ignited a spark of excitement within you, as you embark on an enchanting journey through these heartfelt stories.
