What are the best non-magic/excessive fighting - just general people story animes? So stuff that could pretty easily be made into a live action drama.

(So stuff that's not like Death Note, Vampire Knight, Sailor Moon, Fruits Basket, Pretear, Bleach, etc.)

My pick is Glass Mask (2005).

I also liked Ouran Host High School, but it's kinda sexist, which bothered me.

There are lots of good ones. GTO (already has a live-action drama) and Welcome to the NHK are my favs. I don't watch this genre too often, so others should have tons of recommendations.

Oh yeah, I watched the movie - it was kinda too depressing for me. Is the tv show better?

Azumanga Daioh is probably as ordinary as you can get. Though It's fricken hilarious! There's no fighting or magic AT ALL and the story line stays almost the same. It's still great though. It's is Slice of Life Comedy show, what can you expect.

Also, have you considered the Aria series? Though it's set in the future it's still a great none-magical show, yet again, slice of life. (Okay, I lied there might be SOME magic. ~.~)

its unrealistic and has a bit of light hearted action here and there
but the setting and concept of the show is great. just pure high school antics
