My personal favorite is XXXholic (the xxx apparently also means "insert word here"). I watched it around the same time I watched Clannad and Angel Beats, and I liked it better than both (especially after what they do to you =.=)

I just completed steins;gate, and that was both good and sad.

I don't know to many anime but I do love it, but one I found to be very cool and enjoyable would be (You probably already know/seen it but) Death note. I forgot the name of this other one I liked, but it had something to do with the fighting the spirit world, ah.. It'll come back eventually. Haha :)

Edit: It's the xxxHolic! I remember now! Haha;)

I've been watching Rainbow: Nisha Rokubou no Shichinin. It's fantastic, but it's dark, demented, and above all, depressing.

So I kind of want to watch a lighthearted series that has zero conflict. Nothing but smiles and laughter. Anyone have any ideas?

Hanamaru kindergarten , Lucky star.
Hanamaru Kindergarten is pretty cute and funny.
Lucky star is less cute but really funny as well

Nichijou, because of it's light-hearted humour and funny dialogue that will leave you laughing.

Yuru Yuri, but one of season 2's episodes is really sad so beware of The Akari Who Leapt Through Time (episode 11).

Nichijou. The conflicts are so over-the-top that they're downright hilarious. It made one of my friends laugh until he threw up.

Joshiraku, although it's a little boring unless you're comfortable with nothing but talking and slapstick. Each episode has one scene with the girls doing stuff outside (and their outfits are always really cute), but for the most part it takes place in their dressing room. The sub group (gg) did a great job with translating the large amounts of wordplay.

Id suggest these:
GTO: Great Teacher Onizuka (A great humor/slice of life anime)
Welcome To The NHK (also humor but also slice of life. NOTE: humor is a little dark sometimes also the series has some very depressing themes )
Gankutsuou The Count Of Monte Cristo (Fabulous looking Drama and slice of life)
Nausicaä of Wind Valley (or what ever its called. A Miazaki movie through and through)
FlCl (from the same team that brought Gurren Lagan. The anime is about...epic randomness
Panty & Stocking with Garterbelt ( I recommend this with slight carefulness. The anime is very immature and the humor reflects it. its like a japanese South Park. So its either a total hit or miss...)

EDIT: If it was strictly romance or slice for life the the last few are off. (of course) :D

If you've seen Higurashi then watch Umineko. Plot's great. Animation quality's iffy, but so were parts of Higurashi. Doctor Nanjo looks like somebody glued a 'stache on a potato.

There's also Another, although I personally didn't enjoy it. It's pretty brutal and it added on to my fear of umbrellas.
