16 Disturbing Romantic Anime Relationships That Will Have You Saying NO!

Many relationships aren’t exactly “normal.” You may have noticed this if you a) watch and b) have a working pair of eyes and/or ears. The typical romance is usually depicted as a challenging mess of chaotic ups and downs, huge glistening tears, and the occasional inappropriate nosebleed. As extreme as some romance titles are, they can still be exciting to watch. However, there are some disturbing relationships that feel super creepy and honestly just flat-out unhealthy.

These creepy romantic relationships in anime generally ramp up various situations to a heightened level of drama. These titles often focus on domination, manipulation, forbidden love, and lascivious behavior. Still, not every romantic anime title contains these extreme and sometimes disturbing levels of drama. In fact, many of these titles can still be enjoyed for their intricate storyline or delightful artwork. Some, however, are just straight-up icky. You be the judge of what you can handle and what makes you say, “No!”
