Though I'm leaning towards Romance or Comedy or Slice of Life, maybe more towards romance in general, but nothing too sad. Definitely no detective stuff, I know they can be good, but it's so saturated, both Japanese Dramas and American Dramas lol.
OK then I'll do my recommendation with removing thriller, mystery and detective from my top list :3
Switch Girl!! (2011)
I really love the story. It's from the same name manga, maybe you heard of it ? There is also a season 2 but I haven't seen it yet (shame on me because I BOUGHT the DVD like 3 years ago?)
Yamada kun to 7 nin no Majo (2013)
A "high-school love story" that was cute. A bit haremish (like the original manga) but it stayed funny
Love Shuffle (2009)
Older yet still awesome
Lady Girls (2015)
3 friends and their love story with guys. The main is the best at work but just a mess in love
It was nice, fresh and not too cliché (a bit, as always through xD)
Naruyouni Narusa (2013)
AWESOME Slice of life ! Still have to watch season 2^^
Last Cinderella (2013)
Is age important when you love someone ?
Sumika Sumire (2016)
A grandma find herself back at the age of being a university student. Can she do now what she always wanted to ?
Osozaki no Himawari (2012)
A nice life story. Really fresh and LOVELY.
Welcome to Fortune-Telling Onmyo Shop (2013)
A bit mystery-ish but mostly full fun
Ouran High School Host Club (2011)
Funny "girl go into guy high school incognito". Anime, Manga, everything exist for this ^^
Some movies because I can't help it ... And I like better romantic stuffs when it's movie because it's shorter xD
Flying Colors (2015)
I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend it
Hidamari no Kanojo (2013)
With Matsumoto Jun x'D I was really surprised. it's a nice movie. Maybe a bit tearful through..
Paradise Kiss (2011)
With the awesome Kitagawa Keiko
Heroine Disqualified (2015)
Princess Jellyfish (2014)
Kamoshirenai, Joyuutachi (2015 - Special)
Three specials. My favorite was the second one, but I really recommend watching the three of them.

I was keeping an eye out for Naka Riisa, but she didn't get many main roles. Horikita Maki was getting tons of roles too back then.
Well, they're still getting lot of interest
I love Naka Riisa. It's true that she's not having much big works but well, she had a child if I'm right so she might have taken some time off
If you don't know the website yet, I recommend "MyDramaList"
It is a HUGE database of Asian Dramas and Movies. You're able to keep track of your watching list (and plan to watch, completed) and share with "friends" what you're watching and what you think of it ^^
Tell me if you choose something from this list and what you thought of it ?
You can also ask me If you wanna more information about one
