Junjō Romantica: Pure Romance (純情ロマンチカ/ピュア ロマンス, Junjō Romanchika/Pyua Romansu (lit. "Pure-Hearted Romantica/Pure Romance"), stylized as Junjō Romantica ~Pure Romance~, is a yaoi manga series by Shungiku Nakamura that ran in Asuka Ciel from April 30, 2002 to 2014 and then switched to Emerald. Through the run so far, it has been collected into 27 tankōbon volumes as of September 1, 2022. It focuses on three storylines; the main couple, which comprises the bulk of the books, and two other male couples that provide ongoing side stories ("Junjo Egoist", "Junjo Terrorist", and "Junjo Mistake"). It has expanded into several cd-dramas, a light novel series titled Junai Romantica running in The Ruby magazine, and a 3 season anime series of 12 episodes each (April 11, 2008 to June 27, 2008, October 12, 2008 to Dec 28, 2008, and July 9, 2015 to September 24, 2015) all by Studio Deen. The third season of the anime began in July 2015.

Shungiku Nakamura has written a set of spin-off manga from Junjō Romantica titled The World's Greatest First Love (世界一初恋, Sekai-ichi Hatsukoi) with the first focusing on a shōjo manga editor and his first love, which was also animated by Studio Deen in 2011.


Three very different couples caught up in a storm of pure romance!

Romantica: Misaki is struggling to prepare for his college entrance exams, so his brother arranges for a private tutor. But Misaki's nightmare is just beginning when his tutor, Usami, comes on to him! How will Misaki ever manage to pass his exam? And why does he feel so mysteriously drawn to Usami?

Egoist: Just when Kamijou's life is at its lowest, he has a chance meeting with a man who never lets anything hold him back: Nowaki. His name means "typhoon," and he's about to take Kamijou on a whirlwind ride that will turn everything upside-down.

Terrorist: Miyagi always seems to shrug off the cares of the world with a joke and a smile, but even he has problems, although he doesn't let them show. Foremost is Shinobu, a relentless young man who's adamant that they're destined to be together.
