Hunting for Romance anime

As the title said, I'm on the look for any good romance anime since I don't have any to watch now. What I'm looking for is something around these points...

1) It wouldn't hurt if it had any drama, ecchi or comedy to it.

2) Action is not prefered, while sports, sci fi, adventure and magic are acceptable if they don't make a large factor in it (e.g Suzuka for drama/sports).

3) It's ok to suggest licenced and unlicenced anime.

4) Although I prefer anime from 2000+ but having oldies wouldn't hurt....I hope.

5) Oh and finally, don't even think about stuff like "One Piece" "Naruto" "Bleach" or any Gods-know-how-long anime.

And before you suggest something, check this list of seen/watching anime.
Spoiler:


Thanks for all the trouble everyone ^.^

I suggest to sort the list alphabetically, next time ^^ . Anyway, the following are among the best romance shows I've seen:

Aishiteruze Baby : don't let the appearance deceive you, this is one of the most heartwarming story ever seen.

Bokura ga Ita : a depiction of the difficulties of a complicated love (but is there a single time where love isn't complicated?)

Whisper of the Heart : a great movie from Studio Ghibli.

Kimagure Orange Road : this one is an "oldie", but an unforgettable one.

And then, not properly a pure "romance" based title (though greatly present in the series), but since it isn't in your list, you may have want to have a look to Honey & Clover, and its sequel, Honey & Clover II

Drama and comedy are vastely around in the aforementioned titles. However, none of them is ecchi, sumimasen ^^

I forgot to mentioned my "wanted" list too, since half of the stuff you guys recommended was on that list. But I'll consider your suggestions, thanks guys!

I noticed you dont have Saiunkoku Monogatari listed there. While its a long one, its still one of the better romance anime out there. Think 12 kingdoms with an emphasis on character development/romance instead of action/fantasy.

Also, I congratulate you on being able to remember what anime you have watched after all these years. I used to keep a list but after a while of watching too much stuff it just went to gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhh.

Some classics you might want to check out:

Candy Candy
Maison Ikkoku
Kimagure Orange Road
Touch

More recent offerings:

Marmalade Boy
Hana Yori Dango
Bokura Ga Ita
Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien

Considering you like Kyoto Animation's works, your best bet might be to simply wait until CLANNAD comes out.

I created the list originally to write down which episode I reached, but it evolved into something more complicated

I am! But to wait until 2008 is a long way. I can't wait :'(

And thanks for the suggestions guys, that'll keep me busy until CLANNED is aired :P

Bokura ga Ita and KareKano are the best I have seen so far from all the romance anime.

^You didn't list Kare Kano as something you've seen, which is probably a crime. They have a His and Her Circumstances(Kare Kano) dvd slim pack for $50 now. Well worth it. I list as the best anime ever personally.
