i like those slice-of-life anime best, they make me laugh and yet are touching at the same time. i'm watching k-on 2 at the moment. others i like are :

ranma (the one that made me fall in love with anime)
azumanga daioh (absolutely kawaii characters)
ouran host club
honey and clover 1 & 2
nodame cantabile (made me love classical music)
cowboy bebop
monster (nail-biting episodes)
zetsubo sensei (love the play on their names, especially if you know kanji well)
inuyasha
peacemaker kurogane

I only have manga and anime that's been licensed in America, although I have seen some fansubbed anime when I was still in college and attended the university's anime club.

I have more manga than anime, mostly because manga is cheaper, and I have alot of manga, but my favorite series right now which actually is being collected by my sister is D. Gray-man by Katsura Hoshino. I also like Tactics by Sakura Kinoshita and Kazuko Higashiyama. It's 10:30 P.M. where I am right now so I don't really feel like catalouging every series I own at this time, but those are the two I would say I like best right now.

電波的な彼女 (denpateki na kanojo)
Lucky Star
苺ましまろ (Strawberry Marshmellow)
Lovely Complex
お願いティーチャー (Onegai Teacher)
Hellsing Ultimate
星の声 (Voice(s) of a/the Star(s), strangely dubbed Voice of a Distant Star in the english version)
And for this one there's no anime yet, but here's me rooting for it: 未来日記.
Mirai Nikki (Future Diary) would be awesome as an anime. Absolutely delicious.

kurojaki: nope. I've never seen Basilisk, but I do dislike Naruto and Bleach quite a bit.

Isn't it "Densetsu" no Yuusha no Densetsu?

I've never actually heard of the series myself, but I've never seen an S followed by a T in Japanese before, and I actually know Densetsu to mean "Legend(ary)" :)

I can't really say that I like the longer anime like Gintama/Naruto and the like, I mean, I do like them, but since they are not done, I can't really say, I included Bleach on my list 'coz that one I do love :) One example would be: Inuyasha, I did love it, but the ending was BLAH so it got bumped form my 'faves' list :)
