Top 10 Bad Boy Romance Anime You Need To Watch!

Today we’re going to be looking at the top 10 anime where the bad boy falls in love with the good girl.

I genuinely really enjoy these types of series, as it shows which character is more dominant than the other.

In general though, romance has always been a favorite genre since I started anime.

As it has something not other series have and that is giving us a connection to the characters and not many series do that.

So without further ado let’s get started.

Here are Top 17 anime with bad boys falling in love with good girls:

1. Koi To Yobu ni wa Kimochi Warui (Koikimo)

bad boy romance anime

Koi to Yobu is a new romance series currently airing for the spring 2021 season.

It focuses on an adult and a teenage high school girl to where they build a relationship.

You can say that this is more of a mature romance series since it does involve an adult.

The guy is a complete creep and a womanizer.

However, he only has eyes on the high school girl he fell in love with ever since she saved him from almost dying.

It’s one of those series that you can’t get enough of as the guy always gets what he wants from out of the girl.

And ultimately annoy her until she falls for him.

2. Horimiya

Horimiya is definitely one of the best romance series out there.

‘Hori’ and ‘Miyamura’ are two high schoolers that got into a relationship from their secret that they have shared with each other.

Miyamura might seem like an ordinary loser type, but he is a badass with tattoos and piercings on him.

Definitely your bad boy type who’s gonna get the ladies for sure.

It’s a beautiful story indeed but the character’s interactions are what is key within the series.
