My anime list is here:

http://myanimelist.net/animelist/_Trafalgar_Law_

Please suggest an anime to watch and why I should watch it.

No mecha please! I like mecha, but am very particular as to which mecha I watch and it'd just be a headache of a suggestion.

The more the merrier. I'm looking to be occupied for a while.

Thanks all!

I see you're planning to watch Gintama. I'd say go with that.

Just curious if I were to watch Gintama, what order do I watch it in? That's really the reason I haven't started it. The way crunchyroll has it listed is really confusing, because it looks like I'd be missing something. Basically, like episode 109C should I watch it after episode 109 or should I wait until I reach season 5?

Gintama 1-57 > Gintama: The Movie > Gintama 62+ > Gintama' > Gintama Enchousen > Gintama Yorozuya Forever

The first movie is basically the Benizakura arc with added scenes and higher quality. You can watch the ovas whenever.
Edit: The episodes with "C" next to them you can skip, just reruns. Or you can watch then since it's Gintama and Gintama is awesome.

How do you feel about romance or drama?
I got a few suggestions if you are into that.

Romance and drama are completely fine. I love Nisekoi, and Aoi Yori Aoshi. There are others, but they are kind of ecchi so I don't know if they fall under the same category.I'd prefer not Moe. Suggest away, though. That's what I asked for. Thanks

If you liked Clannad, try Kanon (2006), which is made by the same people and is very similar in a lot of ways. If you want a more comedic take on high-school romance, it doesn't get any better than Toradora. You can also try Golden Time-- it has a lot in common with Ai Yori Aoshi (set in college, mostly about a couple in love, combination of comedy and drama).

Myself; Yourself has a lot in common with ef (though the art isn't as good).

Bakemonogatari is an excellent psychological/romance with a bit of horror thrown in; seems up your ally, given everything else on your list. If you like it, try Dusk Maiden of Amnesia.

Strike the Blood, Trinity Seven, and High School DxD are all in a similar genre to Sekerie or Freezing--but all three are way better, in my opinion. If you like ecchi-harem-action shows, all are good choices.

Trigun is a straight-up action series, but if you like good gunfights, it doesn't get much better.

Toradora! is pretty good, it involves this scary protagonist and his aggressive Tsundere friend. They are both in love with each others friends and therefore ends up making a deal in order to help each other out.

White Album, this show is about a couple of which the female is pop star. The boyfriend is trying to squeeze himself into her life even though it proves to be difficult. It is a somewhat sad show, but I really like how it "felt".
White Album 2 is more energetic and colorful. Both stories takes place in the same universe but the cast of characters is different. Three high school students forms a band together and creates a powerful friendship. However, triangle drama somewhat splits the group and the feeltrain plummels though the show.

Guilty Crown (my personal favorite) is a show about a guy names Shu who fight in a rebellion in order to save his friends. The show have great animations, cool fight scenes, AWESOME characters development and the romance is well executed. However, there are mechs but they are not the focus of the show but merely used to enhance the Sci-Fi feel.

Lovely★Complex is also classic romance anime and is highly regarded as one of the better shows out here. It is about a girl who have the worst luck when it comes to looks and romance, but she never gives up, and that is the message of the show. It is really good laid back show that I personally have a lot good memories from.

If you want more romance shows, you can go and check out my MAL as most of the shows on their fits into that category one way or another http://myanimelist.net/animelist/LargerThanLife&show=0&order=4

I've heard good things about Toradora and Bakemonogatari, however I've never been suggested Kanon (sounds interesting). I have seen myself; yourself I just forgot to add it to the list. Sekirei and the first season of Freezing and Highschool DxD and part of Strike the blood. I think I'll take Kanon Toradora, and Bakemonogatari from your list. Thanks!

Update: About two more anime and this thread should be wrapped up. Thanks for all the help everyone!

If you like Nisekoi you'll probably like Yamada's First Time: B Gata H Kei. It's got the same feel to it but is a bit more ecchi. Other titles in the same genre that may fit are MM! and Mayo Chiki.

If you like darker shows like Mirai Nikki and Another you you may like Chaos;Head or possibly Death Parade.

I'm trying to veer from ecchi as much as possible so I'll take Death parade and chaos; head. I've seen mirai Nikki and Another (Another was amazing).

Thanks for all the help everyone. I have enough anime for at least a few weeks now.
