The "I Love You" you may hear in Japanese movies and drama serials is
Romaji : ai shiteru
Kanji : 愛してる
Hiragana : あいしてる
[Note: This version of "I love you" is usually only used between couples in a seriously committed relationship like marriage.]

Hence, a more commonly used and appropriate expression is "I like" :
Romaji : suki desu
Kanji : 好きです

or "I like very much" :
Romaji : daisuki
Kanji : だい好き

A less serious version of "I like you" is :
Romaji: sukidaiyo
