DBZ. I can't even call it an anime. It's so great, I don't even see it as a Japanese anime.

OMG Golden Time. Holy hell dude, that show. You have to see it. It's funny when it needs to be but its also sad and the romance feels like a real romance. Loved that show

For me I think it would be Anohana. It was the first anime that made me cry. Ever since I watched it, I think I have become more sensitive. Now I tear up a lot more when I'm watching anime, even if it's not that sad. But I also tear up if I see other people crying. After watching Anohana, I was like depressed for a month. I was sad and I kept listening to the op and ed during that month.

"And depending on whom you focus on, the same incident will behave like the surface of the ocean, Changeless yet ever changing."
The way it tells its story is brilliant and the Vice-chief's words are the best way to wrap up the series, as well as make a lasting statement on true nature of story telling.
And of course all the awesome things going on throughout are awesome

Next would technically be
Ouran High School Host Club
Since it was basically the anime that got me into anime and if that isn't a big impact nothing is.

One Piece. I've spent so many years watching this show, laughing and crying through a lot of the story. Its not the richest of story or thought provoking, although there are some moments that touch your heartstrings. Its not about the destination, but merely the journey that I enjoy the most. Its my favorite anime to watch period.

5 Centimeters Per Second. Really helped me grow as a person when I had just gotten out of a serious relationship. Its got a good message behind it.

Clannad and The Pet Girl of Sakurasou. For both of the same reason. They made me really think about my future and what I plan to do as a career. The also had some serious scenes that I felt the feels.

Your Lie in April. Its starting to get up there. Fairly new but it pulls on the heartstrings from time to time.

There's probably more, i just can't think of them right now.

It has to be between Sailor Moon and Lovely Complex

Sailor Moon has been like my role model ever since I watched it back when I was a child. It taught me about friendship and love and not being afraid of being yourself. I feel like watching Sailor Moon was always a way to comfort me when I was down and was fighting myself everyday back in the late 00's

Also there's Lovely Complex. To most people it's just a cute romance anime but to me it's a lot more. As a female who is 6 feet tall and has always been taller than everyone I always struggled with my height. I hated that I was tall because I thought I could never be cute and I thought people looked at me like I was a freak. Sure I was good at basketball but I never loved it. Risa is a character that I deeply relate to. Her struggles and how she feels always hits a soft spot. She cries because she stands out, she cries because she doesn't think she's cute, she cries because she feels like no one sees her as a girl. I have felt everything she has and it freaking sucks. Even to this day I have problems with confidence in my height.
