7.Angel Beats (2010)
This is one of the wildest anime ever with a plot that keeps you enthralled throughout the series. Angel Beats takes place in an etheric high school. When kids have passed on, they use this high school as a purgatory and have to first shed any attachments they have to the past before they pass on to the other side, finally freeing them from the bondage of this place and into the eternal light. But, what they have to do to get there is the best surprise.
This is another one of the best science fiction anime ever made. Freezing takes place in a futuristic setting where earth is at war with invading aliens which are from another dimension. There are two fighting forces at work here. One is the genetically mutated girls called Pandoras who have special fighting skills and Limiters who use Freezing powers to disable their enemies. This is a fast-paced series with lots of action. This is not a boring and long-winded drag by any stretch of the imagination. What happens romantically and the integration of that into this action-packed series is incredible.

Yes, some of these little high school romances can be well-deadly.
Rom-Coms are very difficult to rank as they can be a hit or miss depending on the relationships one has gone through in life. In all honesty, relationships should build us up, cause us to grow, and ultimately teach us lessons about life. So this Top 10 list of romantic comedies focuses on series that do just that and provide us with relatable strong female characters, as well as male characters that have many merits of their own who we can also relate to in one aspect or another.
Even though all 10 of these anime cover some deep or unusual topics, they still manage to keep us laughing, and that’s a beautiful thing.
