Im looking for an Action / Romance Anime that has a really badass main, like he's storng from the start and when they see the person they like / or a friend get hurt they go berserk or something just like Ryner from the legend of the legendary heroes, some animes i have already watched that are like this are:

* - Not That Badass
** - Sorta Badass
*** - Badass
**** Beyond Badass

Kaze no Stigma ****

The Legend of the Legendary Heroes ***

Rurouni Kenshin ****

Samurai Deeper Kyo ****

Hidan no Aria ***

Dragonaut: The Resonance * - Didn't really like it that much so don't suggest
animes like this please

Freezing** ( Not much romance but it was ok)

Trigun**** (Not much romance)

Phantom Requiem for the Phantom *** (3 Cause im not done it yet but i can see what the main character is gonna be like and looks pretty badass)

Tenjou Tenge** (Lacking in the romance department)

Chrome Shelled Regios **

Beelzebub **** (Not really romance but the action is just too badass)

GTO**** (Not really romance, Just Badass'ness)

Demon King Daimao**** (When he snaps its awesome)

So once again remeber the anime has to be Action / Romance and have a main who has a berserk mode when he says the person he likes or his friends get hurt and also If it isn't too much of a bother to you guys add a description also. Thank you Very Much~!
(Also i've watched more then i have put on my list im just too lazy to put it in there / And i hate mecha's) BtW Like most of the stories up there can you suggest a supernatural / Magic anime cause im pretty sure thats what The legend of legendary heroes and Kaze no stigma is.

May I recommend you Full Metal Panic!. It is probably my favorite anime. There are 3 seasons, 2 main storylines and then a comedic side story. It is both action packed and pretty amusing. I'm sure you will enjoy it.

Hajime no Ippo. Romance on the latter part of the show.
Watch the 75-episode series, then the special and the movie, and then the 26-episode series.

Busou Renkin(One of the best if not the best romance i ever saw in a shounen-action style of anime.)
Witch blade
Last two have some romance but have even stronger other kinds of love that yields feelings of protecting. Blood+ has romance maybe in central view but not only, it searches threw a lot of kind of feelings.

Eureka Seven Is a fully romantic story about a boy and a girl that has some action.

+1 on the Full Metal Panic suggestion also. It really is a nice pleasant series combining action,comedy and love.

I decided to try Full Metal Panic, its pretty good so far from the name i thought it was gonna be some space fighting gundam seed mecha shit but its not. Pretty alright for now as of busou renkin already watched it forgot to post it on my list so thanks for that and thanks for suggesting me some animes to watch, Eureka Seven - watched it on TV it wasn't bad but i got boring after awhile. The other 2 Witch Blade / Ga-Rei Zero and pretty much not my type but thankyou.

You can try any anime from the Macross series. Since the first one, it offers the most awkward love triangles I've ever seen, but tends to offer some closure; not to mention it always has good music and quite awesome mecha-plane fighting scenes.

I could also recommend you watch Elemental Gelade, even though it's a bit childish. It's mainly about regrets of using someone as tool...and eventually falling in love with them (lol)

romance is subtle but is a MAJOR part in the storyline. In a way the guy is strong from the start, but you probably won't know it until the story slowly unfolds itself (there's a big hint in the op). The plot is quite complex so it will require a lot of thinking.. so I guess it's an anime not everyone will appreciate, but the plot and character designs are really amazing. Supernatural setting.

Inuyasha - season 2 is definitely much better without all the fillers, so watch season 1 probably up to ep 80 or until you think you pretty much got enough background explained, then you can jump to season 2. The main character is strong from the beginning, goes berserk when the girl's in danger, and the anime is in the supernatural genre.

Katanagatari - the main character does go berserk at some point, but I can't remember why I like this anime :S

umm.... I'm a guy that can't watch without fantasy... So 95 percent of them are fantasy if you don't mind. We have quite a distance in taste. Also I'm gonna add a spoiler button just in case if I spoil something because you said a little description... All the anime I recommend are under the spoiler button!

DUDE! My whole anime list is full of action anime and romance! CHECK IT OUT!

eureka 7 really isnt a action show, its more character driven then anything and the action is pretty rare, its a great show but if you go in looking for action you are going to be dissapointed, renton is not a badass outside the cockpit but inside it he is someone you dont want to go up against cause he will destroy you, one time he legitimently destroys an enemy, it was actually pretty violent for a PG-13 show,

elemental gelade: romance is a major part of the show and gets started pretty quickly but doesnt feel half assed **

martian successor: romance is kidna slow at the start and pretty much only used for comedy but it does get better around ep 6ish when the series starts to show its dramatic side***

kenichi : romance is so freaking slow, like im near the 36 episode mark and i think only now the female lead is showing any interest, action is awesome and i swear every single character in this show including all the villians are likable goes froma * to a ********

tales of symphonia: same sory as the games but this one the romance actually goes somewhere, yah you heard me, a tales product that actually has a romance that goes somewhere, can you believe it? **** everyone in this show is a ****

tsubasa chronicles: i dont really rec this one but its got its moments and trust me, if you put up with the show you are rewarded with tsubasa chronicles tokyo revelations which is incredible, trust em this 3 epsiode ova makes watching the show more than worth it, its that good **

star driver: the show doesnt take itself seriously and may be the gayest thing you have ever witnessed but though the romance does go places, no its not a yaoi, it just has a shit ton of gay jokes (if by badass you mean fabulous then)****************************

oh and of course rahXephon, one of the best shows ive ever seen period but it does demand the viewer to actually think in order to understand the plot, if you dont understand something its your fault not the shows, ******* do nto mess with ayoto cause you will die, painfully

Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me
