aishteru means I love you right?..
and suki desu means I like you..

knowing this, this two sentences has a big difference..
aishteru has a lot more meaning.

Guys, I'm asking about aishiteru solely on the romantic sense of a a guy and a girl. I'm not asking about suki desu or the like but only aishiteru.

Does the heroine in Aishiteruze say aishiteru to him also. I want a title where both are saying that to each other in the presence of each other.

I remember hearing it in FMA... VK...

It means Love.. Japanese are not as expressive so they hardly use it..

they prefer using suki desu.. or daisuki desu.. (like very much)

This is a semi-recommendation thread. All I ask for is one where they both say aishiteru. In the same vein of movies where both people will say "I love you" and "I love you, too". But I am only taking aishiteru because that is a mega level of confession in Japanese.

You hear more statements of "suki" rather than "aishiteru" because you watch more anime focusing on immature relationships. There's a hell of a lot more shoujo than josei. It's what sells.

ditto. The same thing with dramas.

I'm pretty sure that when you say "suki desu" to the opposite sex in Japan it is inferred as "I love you".

Why do you care so much on what wording they use? "Aishiteru" not a direct translation of the English phrase "I love you in a romantic way" anyway. In Japan the concept of love isn't as driven by phrases and it's generally not expressed in words as much. When it comes to anime as long as the scene is right and they show their feelings for each other, it shouldn't matter what wording they use. The reason you don't see anime use that phrase as much is because it is not a commonly used phrase at all. It's more about the tone of the scene and the reaction of the two characters to each other than the cliche Hollywood "I LOVE YOU!" scene.
