For a great recommendation resource, see List of Worthwhile Anime.
- Toradora. Depressed someone on r/anime because their life will never be as wonderful as in this anime.
- Ouran High School Host Club. A guy on r/animesuggests looking for more realistic anime than Puella Magi Madoka Magica said he liked this one (although I don't think this one's actually realistic).
- Anohana. Mentioned on r/animesuggests with passing reference to making them cry. Looks alright from the Wikipedia page.
- Planetes. Hard scifi anime, highly recommended by someone on r/animesuggests.
- Cowbody Bepop. Apparently "consistently ranked among the top anime of all time" etc etc.
