Fushigi Yugi: The Mysterious Play - Suzaku Box (Season 1) (Disc 1 of 4) (1995)
12345678910
Not Rated
  If I had to pick a favorite anime ever, this would probably be it. There is so much angst in it, complete with several love triangles, betrayal, and bishounen >.<. The plot is awesome and touching. ::sniff::
His and Her Circumstances Vol. 1: Appearance of a Normal Life (1998)
12345678910
  Very angsty series, several cute moments but has an unfinished ending. If you watch the series and end up liking it I recommend you read the manga. Of course, the manga takes a horrible unspeakable strange turn at the end.
Marmalade Boy: Ultimate Scrapbook Vol. 1 (Disc 1 of 3) (1994)
12345678910
Not Rated
  This has to be one of the best romance animes of all time. Lots of love triangles, lots of cheese, very good. The manga is also excellent, but shorter and more to the point.
Fruits Basket vol.1: A Great Transformation? (2002)
12345678910
Not Rated
  No real romance in this anime, but plenty of near romantic angsty moments. Another series with no conclusion, fans are turning to the manga which apparently has also taking a turn towards death and destruction. It is still a very good series with an interesting premise.
Boys Over Flowers Vol. 1: Declaration of War (2003)
12345678910
Not Rated
  A w e s o m e!! This anime differs from regular romance anime because it is very erm.. violent... but not in the big battling robots dueling swordsman way. The animation is hard to get used to but the plot is so good it doesn't even matter. The manga goes beyond the anime but does not provide a good conclusion. Check out the soap operas too.
Magic User's Club OVA Vol. 1: I'll Follow You! (1995)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Cute anime, lots of fanservice (not a plus IMO) plenty of cheese. The main male character is not someone fan girls should swoon for but ehh... still a good anime. I liked the series better than the OVA.
Kimagure Orange Road TV Series vol.1 (1987)
12345678910
  Looooong very frustrating series with an even more frustrating love triangle... but if you can manage to get through the whole thing, the OVA and the 2 movies are freaking awesome. So angsty >.<
Maison Ikkoku Box Set Vol. 1 (Disc 1 of 3) (1986)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Another really frustrating series. This is a Rumiko Takahashi (the creator of InuYasha) anime... it actually has a conclusion unlike her other work... but it take 90-something episodes to get to a very obvious ending. The last 5 episodes or so are really good.
Ranma 1/2: Digital Dojo - TV Season 1 (Disc 1 of 4) (2001)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Even though Ranma had NO conclusion, it is still one of my favorites. Very angsty relationship between Ranma and Akane and the other characters... like a love octagon. Good Stuff.
Inu Yasha Vol. 1: Down the Well (2002)
12345678910
Not Rated
  The end was really disappointing, if you can even call it an ending. Regardless, the show is very good, very angsty love triangle between InuYasha, Kagome, and Kikyo. To get a conclusion fans will have to start the manga which is going no where very slowly.
Revolutionary Girl Utena vol. 1: The Rose Collection 1 (1997)
12345678910
Not Rated
  This series is really weird, and has several angsty moments. It's pretty good, but expect to be really confused/grossed out/??? at times.
Pretear vol. 1 (2003)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Take all the standard popular romance and shoujo anime out there and roll it into a neat little 13 episode package and you have Pretear. You will not find anything new and exciting here but even so, it is great. Angst through the roof. Very good but typical shoujo magical girl anime, with a good love story.
Sailor Moon: Season One Uncut (Disc 1 of 8) (1992)
12345678910
Not Rated
  The anime that started the obsession with romance anime for me. The first season of Sailor Moon is very angsty, if you like it you might want to watch the rest of anime too... its very long but very good.
Ceres, Celestial Legend Vol. 1: Destiny
12345678910
  Ceres is by the same creator of Fushigi Yuugi, but not as good. There is still plenty of angst, but the ending will probably piss some people off... well at least it pissed me off.
Princess Nine Vol. 1: First Inning (2001)
12345678910
  Very angsty girl power type anime. A good love triangle.
Steel Angel Kurumi Vol. 1: Angel on My Shoulder (2002)
12345678910
  The relationship in SAK is weird because the boy is so young. But it's still a good romance and it's very funny.
Super GALS! Vol. 1: Gals Gotta Have Heart (2003)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Like Fruits Basket... there never really is any flat out romance but there are lots of angsty near romance moments, it's also very funny. This series has a second season that hasn't been released yet *crosses fingers*
Ai Yori Aoshi Enishi Vol. 1: Fate (2003)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Ok so AYA goes before Enishi but I liked enishi a lot better than AYA. Many people will read this and think I'm nuts... but honestly I just wanted to stab Aoi, so seeing less of her was nice. ^^
Ai Yori Aoshi Vol. 1: Faithfully Yours (2003)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Good series, one really annoying character... the other characters are really memorable... plenty of angst over all pretty good.
Wedding Peach Vol. 1: Love Wave (2004)
12345678910
Not Rated
  If you like magical girl anime with a butt load of angst... this one is for you. >.< so ansgty.
Ultramaniac vol. 1: Magical Girl (2005)
12345678910
Not Rated
  From the creator of Marmalade... cute an angsty magical girl anime. Very cute character designs. Awesome ending.
Saint Tail Vol. 1: Thief of Hearts
12345678910
Not Rated
  Very basic magical girl angstiness. A must see.
Midori Days vol. 1: A Helping Hand (2005)
12345678910
  Romance... but funny... doesn't really match the genre of the rest of the stuff on this list but it's romance anyway.
Princess Tutu vol. 1: Marchen (2005)
12345678910
Not Rated
  Oddly surreal magical girl series... full o' angst. Very different from the usual.
