Since I am an addict aquarist, and deeply in love with the nature aquascaping style of takashi amano. My favorite japanese 'love story' movie is of course, Sono toki wa kare ni yoroshiku.

Currently loving on "Virgin Snow." Then again, if you like the angsty stuff, I should probably rack my brains for something else. I'm a sucker for fluff.

As for me, I enjoy watching "Densha Otoko". The story is about an otaku who had fall in love with a woman. But I think the drama version are much better compared to the movie. It is my opinion though...

I second Densha Otoko but mainly because I'm pretty much as otaku as he is.

try densha otoko. I'm a guy, I don't even speak much japanese, and I'm not interested in girls in the least, and I don't plan on being interested in them for 4, 5, or 6 more years, until I'm around 18 or 20, and I still loved this movie. Now that I think of it, it's probably because I can relate to it... I'll probably end up being hopeless in the romantic field and i'm a nerdy guy just like the main character.

[color=#80FF40]Hana Yori Dango!!!
YAA.
it's a series, like an anime except it's a MOVIE with REAL LIVE people :D [plus there's not as much episodes but still 2 seasons!]

It's GREAT and soo WORTH watching!
well... if you're an anime person... or just.. manga? like shojo?

Also, i suggest Hana Kimi!!!
again series, but a MOVIE w/ REAL LIVE people, lol. (=

Lastly, Sapuri!!!
it's also goood.
W/ REAL people that are live. hehe, people just mistake these for anime, so just making sure (=

"Audition", nothing says love like a female homicidal stalker (watched it prior to studying Japanese, so English subtitle version).

Granted, 白夜行 (びゃくやこう) works in the series department for me (granted, following it only in Japanese).

Yeah, I'm kinda low in the number of Japanese movies (any genre). I guess 電車男 as that's the only love story movie I've watched in Japanese (like others, I think the series is better).
