Unhappy Tear Jerkers or Funny Love Stories

After watching Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien... I want more!! I need recommendations for Tear Jerkers, Funny, Love, Good Storyline, Semi-sexual tension....
Here are the kinds that I want

Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien (If you haven't seen it, get it now! I just got it yesterday and stayed up all night to watch it)

Da Capo

Onegai Teacher / Onegai Twins

This is what I am looking for at the moment

I'm a guy, but I'm so into these types of animes, only one of my friends know I watch this type of anime... When someone else comes over, I change it to Cowboy Bebop or Trigun... (can't let too many people know I'm soft on the inside!)

Ohh one more thing! Nothing too dark! I dot wanna see a female lead getting (violated by an antagonist char) or anything else on that line.

full moon wo sagashite is great and will make you feel every emotion in the book. Try Ranma 1/2 for a good romantic comedy type thing, not much of a story line..but is a good one to watch. Boys Be is a sappy love filled anime..pretty much what it is about. There is always ai yori aoshi or kare kano too.

Kanon does pretty well in most of those categories, it's probably the "other" great such show available on AnimeSuki.

If you're willing to look at licensed titles, KareKano (His and Her Circumstances) is probably the best romantic comedy ever made.

I agree with Lambda about Kare Kano and I agree with Pantsu about Full Moon.. But they're not at all like the series you mentioned so I'm not sure if you'd like it.

If I were you, I'd look up series like I"s, Video girl Ai, Urusei Yatsura, Ranma, Ah! My goddess and other similar classics.. ^.^ To Heart was also pretty good. Boys Be is an okay anime too.

I'm a guy who likes similar anime that you seem to like, so try these:

Kanon - Romantic anime, though it wouldn't seem like one in the beginning. I liked this one even though I had to get used to the style its drawn in. I actually cried in this anime, which is a first.

Saikano - I have mixed feelings for this one. Good storyline and a lot of drama. Romance driven anime but with a lot of heartache. I almost stopped watching this one cause I didn't know if I could stand the sadness and worriness I was feeling.

Green Green - Comedic anime with a lot of eechi. if you can withstand the over-the-top humor, its a pretty good watch with some romance in there.

Maburaho - Comedy with some eechi and romance. Very light hearted.

Ai Yori Aoshi - After watching Saikano, Kanon, and Kimi Ga Nozomu Eien, this was a great anime to watch with its "feel good" storyline. Romance similar to Kanon and Maburaho. Basically a happy love story.

Love Hina - Romantic comedy.

Boys Be - Can't really describe it. Not a bad anime though. I liked it. Romance and drama might be a decent description.

Hmm, I guess you can try To Heart too. It's quite a light hearted love story. Not really touching but it makes you feel nostalgic.

FLCL is a love story???? I will say that its a really screwed up love story if it is a love story. I'm not to sure though. I don't know what FLCL can be called to begin with.

You should try Mizuiro, short (only 2 OAVs) but still very emotional.

Like Kimi ga Nozomu Eien, Mizuiro is also anime-version of bishoujo game, but there is no (or maybe very little) fanservice in this one. It is just heart-breaking story.
Don't mistake Mizuiro and Mizuiro Jidai, they are different series.

Apparently FLCL is more than just mindless fun... check out this file with FLCL explained.
