Well, not knowing what you've seen and what your tastes are, I could blindly throw a few darts.

Zettai Shounen
Natsume Youjinchuu/Zoku
Seirei no Moribito
Oh! Edo Rocket
Ghost Hound

I'm happy to elaborate further on any of those, but the list is too long, I think, to do so with all of them...

I think Honey and Clover deserves a place on that list too.

But, it depends on your tastes.

Clannad, definitely Clannad, and more Clannad.

Jigoku Shoujo and Code Geass are good too.

Here are my suggestions so far, but since I don't know what is your taste in Anime, so your milage will vary.

Clannad (both seasons): Clannad is a pretty epic story since the story from the visual novel is very long due to the number of arcs are in the game for each character and have good drama value. The story is basically about a delinquent named Tomoya which is labeled a delinquent because he comes late to his school since he doesn't get along with his father. While going to school, he meets Nagisa and soon goes into a relationship after helping several other girls on the way. The second season is the continuation, but a year after Tomoya graduates from school.

Kanon (2006) - Almost identical to Clannad, but in winter and also in a pseudo-harem setting with the same old, tear-jerking drama. Most will appreciate it since it's closely done from the original material which the first version botched up and also the eye candy in the scenery. This is basically a story about a boy named Yuuichi who returns to the town he haven't visited for 7 years and soon after meeting the girls and solving their problems, he starts to regain memories lost in the past.

Suzumiya Haruhi (First Season only): Although the second season haven't lived up to the first, the first season was outstanding in the standpoint of being accurate to the light novel, good animation and also interesting story. Basically, this is a story about a normal being hanging in the club with a time traveler, a esper, a alien, and a god.

Air: Another good tear-jerking series with alot of drama and supernatural elements. This is basicly a story about a wonderer named Yukito trying to find the "girl in the sky" Soon, he finds three girls that have some dream to fly to the sky to the "the girl in the sky." There is also historical arc named the "Summer Arc" which is covered more in detail in "Air in Summer" which pretty much clears up the 2 episode Summer Arc in the normal series.

If you end up liking series like Kanon, Cannad, and Air, I also suggest checking out ef ~ Tales of Memories/Melodies. Although the adaptation may not be as good as the counterparts, it's still a very good series to check out with good animation and story line.

Honorable Mentions:
Lucky Star: Good Comedy and slice of life about 4 girls which have alot of references to anime and Japanese Culture... Your milage may vary depending on your reaction to the show after a few episodes...
Kannagi: Similar to Haruhi since this is about two gods, (Nagi and Zange) with alot of comedy, some drama and also a fight to win Jin's heart between the two gods and also his childhood friend, Tsugumi.
K-ON!: Similar concept with Lucky Star, but slightly better but with dealing with music and pretty good entertainment value, but milage may very since some people may not like this kind of series which was the same case with Lucky Star.

Hopefully this post will be helpful in your decisions. Good luck!
