    mecha - big robot things
    shounen - ninjas / fighting ones (they have some set of plot characteristics, dont know what they are)
    romance - romance

    there's romance, and there's everything else :mamoru:

    but seriously, there are many many genres.
    http://anidb.info/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=genre
    the ones you might not know are

    ecchi - sexual in nature. e.g. lots of fanservice (showing off the girls' bodies), and perverted situations.
    Ghibili - the japanese word for homosexuality. you don't want to look at any of these obviously.
    shoujo - anime geared towards shoujo (young girls)
    shoujo ai - anime about subtle themes of girl x girl love :o
    shounen - anime geared towards shounen (young boys). so it doesn't exactly have to be ninjas or fighting like soymilk said, but that is a majority of it.
    shounen ai - the opposite of shoujo ai :hsugh:
    yaoi - overt male homosexuality
    yuri - overt female homosexuality

    don't be a faggot TUN, just because your narrow view on what is considered to be 'good' anime doesnt include these genres doesn't mean others wont enjoy it.. jeezus grow up would you?
