Unhappy Need new anime....

I would like an anime with drama and romance mainly. School/slice of life is fine. I don't want any mecha or echii. Please list some suggestions and a brief summary of the anime. Thanx!!!

Just to avoid unnecessary(meaning those that you've already seen) suggestions how about you give a list of what you have already seen
'Cause the genre you're talking about has a LOT of shows, so it would help me and others if you put up some shows you have seen/liked.

Let's see what I have.

Ahem:

Clannad - An anime with loveable characters, great setting, story, and makes you feel things at times.

Angel Beats - Girl leads a campaign against god but later discover that each of the character have their own personal tragedies in their past life.

Kimikiss Pure Rouge - A high school romance story about two boys learning the ups and downs of romance at a young age.

Sora no Woto - It's about a young trumpeter who's stationed at a miltary base in a quiet town. While there she learns the meaning of friendship, purpose, and adventure.

Like what Eragon said, a list of anime you've watched/liked would be good so that we don't sound like a broken record while suggesting ideas.

That's all I can think of for now. What do you say?

Drama+romance?

You're looking at Rumbling Hearts/Kimi ga Nozomu Eien for sure. Plenty of angst involving two girls and a guy. The two girls are friends. One of them whose boyfriend is the male protagonist falls into a coma and wakes up 3 years later, while the other falls for her boyfriend. Angst,angst,angst.

Well that simplifies things
So, I'm going to second Clannad as most who visit this thread will.........So, I think that's the first one you should check out.

My recommendations would be,
Ginban Kaliedoscope
Kaichou Wa Maid Sama!
Romeo X Juliet
Eureka - has Mecha though

Now, do you mind yuri titles? If not then give Maria Watches Over Us a try. There's plenty of drama there and though its not yuri in the strictest sense - so no romantic pairings - but there is plenty of love between the characters

I would recommend Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai which is translated as We Still Don't Know the Name of the Flower We Saw That Day.

Reading your request I thought you were mainly looking for more dramatic animes, but you listed a fair bit of lighter/more comedic series, so I included both. Too much hassle to write about each of them, you can easily look them up on any page like Wiki, AniDB, MAL etc.

Toki o Kakeru Shoujo
5 Centimeters per Second
Hoshi no Koe
Honey and Clover
Nodame Cantabile
Ano Hi Mita Hana no Namae wo Bokutachi wa Mada Shiranai
Tokyo Marble Chocolate
Kanon (2006)
True Tears
Toradora!
Kimi ga Nozomu Eien
ef - series
Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora
The World God Only Knows
Nana
Paradise Kiss
Victorian Romance Emma
Romeo x Juliet
Crest of the Stars
Saikano
Hatsukoi Limited
Itazura na Kiss
Suzuka
Video Girl AI
Midori no Hibi
I My Me! Strawberry Egg
Skip Beat!
Lovely Complex
Kimi ni Todoke

Doubt you will like these, but if you ever feel experimental:
Kaiba
Kemonozume
Mind Game

I second HanTsuki, ef and I would recommend H2O : Footprints in the Sand.
Don't you mind titles that contains more than just a good amount of drama and filled with tragedy ?

Nope, i don't mind those types. I have heard suggestions of H20: footprints in the sand. I am kind of doubtful about it because i am thinking that it is the same H20 we see on TV with the real austrailian actors.

Great list. You were right about the last three animes you listed. It looks like a kiddie anime to me. In any case, i appreciate the lenghty list.

Looks can be decieving, to say the least. Content and theme-wise only Honey and Clover from above list can match them.

Both titles are completely different, even the plot, so don't worry. Write Footprints in the Sand to avoid confusion with the other title.

In conclusion......thanks for your help.
