Any anime with a strong, beautiful female lead? Romance prefered! Not reverse harem though please :( (Okay with ecchi, just not overloaded.)

Re: Cutey Honey

The romantic elements take the form of shoujo-ai, so I hope you don't mind that.

Maybe Grenadier as well, but I haven't seen it. The lead does seem to be strong and attractive, though.

I'm guessing you don't mind ecchi, since you gave Aki-Sora 9/10. You should state whether you want ecchi in it or not, though.

Kara no Kyoukai, Shiki is strong and beautiful and it has a touch of romance (even though it's not the main theme).

I'd disagree with Allison to Lillia, mainly because it sucked not because it doesn't have the character type you're looking for.
seconding:
Juuni Kokuki, various female main characters finding their inner strength
Seirei no Moribito, story is only so-so but Balsa is definitely what you're looking for
Spice and Wolf, be prepared for long conversations about economics. extremely good even if you don't understand those conversations though.
Tetsuwan Birdy: Decode, this is far better than the description makes it sound.

adding:
Samurai Champloo, female lead isn't physically strong, but she makes up for it in other ways
NANA, the characters are complex but I'd say both of the female mains are incredibly strong in their own way.
Seto no Hanayome, action/comedy/romance, the female main characters aren't the leads but they're both very capable of kicking the lead's ass if they feel like it.
Princess Tutu, though she's probably too young to qualify as beautiful
Kaleido Star, if you like shounen sports anime you'll probably like this, no romance though
Slayers, artwork is probably too dated to count as beautiful anymore though
FLCL, this is a fairly insane series though

Anybody know of an anime with a young woman sword fighter who protects a young boy while traveling, and when she fights she becomes merciless and cruel and as the story goes on that side of her personality starts to take over, I read about it on some nondescript anime site, but I can't remember which, or what the show was called, so I'd appreciate any help finding it, sounds like a cool story.

Kaichou wa maid-sama
the main heroine-Misaki is just the one you're looking for-she is beautiful and strong in every way and doesn't depend on anyone,well yeah sometimes but that always happens
i really enjoyed that anime but there is again the problem with the too perfect main male character.........

I liked her character but what's strong about her
She was just a cheerful and lively character.

Re: RONin63
You are talking about Moribito, it is on Netflix!
Also, there is an awesome one called, "The World Is Still Beautiful," but you want to research it in it's Japanese name (You can find it by researching the English title).
