I want to get into watching more Anime, something that I've never watched before. So, please help me out here! Below, will be a list of things I want to avoid:

Gore
Underdeveloped Characters
Melodrama
Too Many Episodes

Use my Anime list for a reference, if you need it!
Thanks!

You don't have much of a list, and you've pretty much given everything a high rating, which makes it rather hard to give a good recommendation.

Here's a few that don't go over 26 episodes, and are very good:

Paranoia Agent (or any other Satoshi Kon work)
Higashi no Eden
Cowboy Bebop
Eve no Jikan
Ghost in the Shell (any)
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure
Kaiba

You need to update your list then.

Recommendations:

Azumanga Daioh (If you like Haruhi, K-On! and Lucky Star you will like this)
Minami-ke (any of them, best to start fromt he first)
REC (short, sweet and cute)

Okay since all I really got is that your looking for popular anime/manga with good characters, no intense action and prefer romantic comedies I'll just list a few manga you might like since it seems your desperately looking for manga...

- Ouran High School Host Club (romantic comedy for the most part)
- Black Cat (a rather popular anime of a bounty hunter who swore off killing)
- Yankee-Kun to Megane-Chan (a comedy of a gangster and the class pres. always dragging him into funny situations, I'm reading it right now and I find it rather relaxing and enjoying oddly enough)

Sorry if these don't help but I'm not the biggest manga reader and it seems all the bases are covered anime-wise except for maybe some things like Akane-iro ni Somaru Saka, Asu no Yoichi!, Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun, Kage kara Mamoru!, which are just a few romantic comedies that I can think of... again sorry if this doesn't help at all.

Aria, it's a great slice of life. It may be a little slow pace but it's got some of the best characters to come across in anime.

Also going to recommend Nana, while it can be a tad melodramatic and is 47 episodes long it's still great and worth the watch. It is by far the most realistic romance anime i have come across, with great characters.
