    Ai Yori Aoshi and AYA: Enishi for the lighthearted comedy stuff.

    Kimi ga Nozomu Eien (Rumbling Hearts) for the tragic tear-jerker stuff.

    Kimi ga Nozomu Eien (aka Rumbling Hearts) is definately a tear jerker. one of the few animes to get an emotional response out of me - its very F'ed up in its own way... but its realistic. shit like that CAN happen to people, and how people act and react is definately very human.

    Yeah, it's actually one of my favorite anime, because it deals with human nature, in a more realistic manner than most anime.

    While I loved Ai Yori Aoshi (Another of the animes I bought to keep) You have to be careful with that type of anime.

    If ur girlfriend/wife possesses any insecurity at all no girl/woman could ever live up to those standards. I would look for anime where the female character is more flawed.

    For me and my limited experience with anime "Moribito: Guardian of the Sacred Spirit" was an excellent one to share with a GF

    Another excellent one like entropy13 mentioned was "Air", sad but very good.

    Guys, thanks for the suggestions. I'll have to look into them and see if I can grasp wanting to watch that.. Knowing me I will since it's anime!

    Makoto Shinkai's movies are a work of art. The three films are just breath taking on every angle since it even gets you thinking..

    Three Movies:
    Voices of a Distant Star
    A Place Promised In Our Early Days
    5 Centimeters Per Second

    I'll have to look up the other ones.. I just thought i'd throw that out there for anyone else.

    Kurosagi01 I haven't heard of it yet.. gotta find it.

    OMG about dam time...

    I picked up "Please:Teacher" from netflix and sat through it and although the idea was cool its execution sucked (another idiot but this time married to a hot wife thats afraid to kiss her)..

    So when I heard there was a second in the series "Please:Twins" I was a bit leary.. I have no clue why they brought some of the people from "Teacher" to appear in "Twins" but "Twins" is a million times better and highly worth watching.(I havent laughed that hard in a long time) Finally a guy character that resembles a real teenager.

    You can even skip "Teacher" all together as long as you knew the teacher was a half alien and the little creepy rag doll thing that magically appears every now and again is her link to her ships computer.

    EDIT: Hey CS should that last sentence use that spoiler thing?

    onegai teacher and onegai twins arent related, really. its just that anime has a genre where they do alternate reality spinoffs (futakoi/futakoi alternative, Mai hime/mai otome, FMP/FMP Fumoffu)

    I completely forgot about futakoi alternative. I need to hunt that down again. Hilariously weird series.

    I'm a big fan of the aviation themed Porko Rosso. It seems to me that this show may have provided the background for Crimson Skies, which was a beautiful game on the original Xbox. It's a great one to check out if you haven't seen it, and comes in either subtitles or in voice over featuring Micheal Keaton.

    It's dang hard to go wrong with Vampire Hunter D. Stumbled on this one after a binger session in college back in the early 90s, and I thought my mind was going to pop, especially when he starts talking to his pal in his hand.
