    Well yeah two weeks ago i got my girlfriend to watch Tayou no Uta with me (the movie with YUI) and to my surprise she really loved it except for a few comments like "WTF is wrong with that stupid girl she should just tell him" and such ... ^^V

    Now after she asked me if there are more good ones like this i told here most Japanese Movies are way better than American (my taste) and she wants me to show her more ...
    I have seen so many great ones in the last 10 years but hell i hardly remember the name of any one of these + i mainly watched series (which mostly have 12 episodes with about 40-60 min running time each) which would take to much time as she is only here on weekends.

    So i would like to get some nice recommendations from you !

    I do preffer Love Drama but i wouldn't mind anything else that is Romantic and could be watched with my gf
    (Anime would be okay as well ! she knows i like Anime and she told me she would even start to read some Manga if i would suggest her some)

    if anime is okay with you,

    Hoshi no Koe ( English : Voice of a Distant Star) : was pretty good but very short, but one of the best I have ever seen.
    and

    1 more vote for 5 cm per second.

    5 cm per second is from the same director, but I do not have seen it yet. on the other hand, after watching Hoshi no Koe,
    I think this one is very promising too.

    for non-anime movies, I can't really name one because I haven't seen any non-anime japanese movies.

    Ringu. I think it's a movie about an engagement ring or something.

    Hmm well i have seen 5 cm per second it had a nice drawing style but i think i fell half asleep XD maybe i should look into it another time ... wasn't this the one that had planned 3 movies or something like that ? (only watched one)
    Yeah Densha is awesome but as i said i do not want series as they are to long ... or is there a Movie oO?
    I only know the TV Series and it was soooooooo good :)

    Hoshi no Koe ... never heard of that will look into it !!
    same goes for that Ringu.


    ///

    omg oO ... yeah Ringu ... "the Ring" ... horror oO
    I want some Love stuff i can watch with my Girlfriend ^^V

    If it wouldn't be a long Series i would watch Yanpapa or Virgin Road or stuff like that but i cannot watch a 12hour series with ther when she is only here 2 days ...

    You have to watch Love Exposure. It's 4 hours long but every second is worth watching. It's really a romance type movie but with a weird twist that'll definitly throw you off. It's hard to explain but you must check it out.

    Kimi Ni Todoke Live Action/Drama (The anime in my opinion was better...)

    and
    Hanazakari no Kimitachi e (it's also a manga and has a taiwanese version.)

    koizora and Sekai no chuushin de, ai o sakebu
    though they are both pretty depressing
    kimi ni todoke is much lighter
