I would disagree that Ai Yori Aoshi was a "typical" harem anime. Despite all the typical harem humor, the core romance between Kaoru and Aoi remained and made this series much more of a romance than almost any other "harem anime" I have ever seen.

I also found the first season ending entirly satisfying. I admit the second season was not quite as good (although I still found the Tina arc especially touching), but the season two ending was not nearly as good as season one.

If anyone did like the anime of Ai Yori Aoshi, I would stronly suggest reading the manga. The english version of the 17th and final volume of that series is due out next month, and the manga brings the whole story or Kaoru and Aoi to an actual climax.

Lamune - the most heart-warming thing you will ever see.
Huh, I have never seen this, but you make it sound very interesting. I may have to check this out, too!

Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora - romance/drama in a hospital setting.
I second that. A wonderfuly touching romance.

Gift ~Eternal Rainbow~ - romance/drama with a wee bit of fantasy.
I enjoyed this one two, although not as much as Ai Yori Aoshi or Hanbun no Tsuki ga Noboru Sora

I might also recomend REC. It's a "real life" romance about a 20-something office worker thrown together by chance with a young female seiyu.
