So , I was looking for one for ages , and couldn't find any that meets my expectations and wondering if you could help me fellow MAL users .

** Whereever I look , there were some really bad recommandations like Naruto , I mean a little bit blushing or something in every 40 episodes ? ( Just giving an example , maybe there are more ) I don't call it romance . No . Bleach and Death Note .

*** You can rate it in your head . It could be great if you shared that rating with me too :P Like lets say Naruto , its %95 percent Action and %5 percent romance . NO ! Don't want that ( It's also an example , maybe there are more , I'm saying these because there may be people who is stating it instead of recommending something :P )

So rate it in your head . So far , SnS 3 was great for me . Not 1-2 , those were bad , good action , very bad romance . I mean there was a love triangle , which I don't like , and main character was indecisive. In SnS 3 , he made up his mind , and also was very powerfull ( Going to talk about characters in a bit ) So , think about ratings , one of them shouldn't pass %70 , ( Romance may pass ) and romance should develop good , not one of them pushy and other is shy , getting all blushed.

** So about genres, I don't really like Harem/Triangle or something like that . Normal 2 people , developing* relationship. About Characters , most of shows chars are bad , especially male lead . Indecisiveness/Pervert/Shy or ''No , I don't want my boring life to change . I don't want powers ''

So , for examples :
Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu : Was GREAT . But there weren't any romance :( Only in last episode , last minute . I mean .. no .

Stuff looks like all same to me , all they lack is .. Male lead. They always shy or stupid or pervert or something . It just not develops !?!?!? I'm mad.
Omamori Himari / Highschool DxD / Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi / Seto no Hanayome / Asobi ni Iku yo! .

And there is to Love - Ru : If I remember correctly , main girl was okay with sharing the boy ? BS.

Baka to test : Stupidest male lead ever . Really .

A lot of people recommend Fushigi Yuugi , bad it looked bad so I kinda forced myself to watch first episode :(

***Zero no Tsukaima was also great ,there was a love triangle BUT main male DID made a choice so , everything was great . ( But it wasn't as good as SnS , all that new elf girl thing push it away from romance to comedy part :/ )

So far the SnS 3 was great for me , I hope I made my self clear , and won't see any recommandations that I said I didn't like ( or an empty page :P ) and you guys help me and people like me
This post was very long , I'm not sure if someone will read it all :P but if you do , Thank you so much !!

Could be great if you searched in list if it is there , just ctrl + f and write nothing hard :)

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. 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

You sure about those ? You know I'm guessing I wrote it like 10 times about '' No little bit or undeveloping romance '' and I'm guessing they are going to be like that EVEN if they are must watch .

Going by your favourites, I'd suggest Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom.

Kaiba is great too, but the action is more understated. I can say the same for Gankutsuou, but you don't want complicated relationships, so probably stay away from this.

My Favourites are mainly because one character , Which is like ''Keima'' in Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai , and also ending music was great . Other than that story felt like one big filler :P So only SnS 3 was a good example on that list .

Take the time to update your anime list. It makes it much easier to make appropriate viewing suggestions. It also eliminates the insult you give when you say "Oh, I already watched that" after someone takes the time to recommend it.

Most involve action. A few do not.
An asterisk "*" just means there are additional seasons, movies, ovas, etc.

Okay , will do it .Also for the long list . I was considering '' Touka Gettan'' but I saw it is reversed and felt like '' It's going to be confusing :/ '' . What are your thoughts about that ? That show also looks like something I would really enjoy

-- I made it through 8 or so eps before dropping it. Not awful. Not great. Just didn't really suit me. Remember some romance but not a lot of action.

I think you should check out freezing. Freezing's main character male is basically op. His sister is this really powerful pandora... But he doesn't notice his powers, hes basically oblivious. As you watch, his power gets more powerful... Well its kinda like he starts out as a weakling then his power starts to awaken. just notice that there are a lot of action and each action is really amazing... no truly! I don't know if you like ecchi though, theres plenty in here.

I'll encourage you to watch the following since you already have it on your list but its either on hold or you plan on watching:

Onegai Teacher (No action but romance scenes are good, it develops A LOT!)
Dragonaut: the resonance (Its straight romance no triangles.)
Dragon Crisis (Although there are multiple girls who like the male lead, the male lead only likes one, kinda like what you described for Zero no Tsukaima)
Tales of the Abyss (this anime has an end that's kinda like how you described Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu, how there's only romance at the end but I thought the plot was ok... Theres plenty of action if you ask me.... By the way, romance does develop, just a little though. It started out from nothing then to a phrase "I love you" ROFL!)

Sorry but you have watched more than I did... Hey um, do you care for animation quality?


Btw I'm currently watching Guilty Crown, you might like it, it's still airing so i can't summarize it for you at the moment

As for quality , I watched Fushigi Yuugi 's first episode and now I doubt about watching rest of it :/
About Guilty Crown , Main Male , oh man , he wants a normal life , really ? REALLY ? I stopped at second episode . A lot of people says it is a rip off of Code Geass , they kinda look like same , but the difference between characters .. I choose watching Code Geass 10 times more instead 1 time Guilty Crown I think haha :P
Freezing main char also made me mad . Like first time he jumped on her and made her loose , like first time , she lost perfect title and all that painfull staff . Still going after her like a chewing gum . That's what they call being naive I think ? Extreme one . Annoying as hell too . Female was awesome . They are always awesome . It hurts my eyes too see they fall for those guys :'(
You are new too ? Cool we can find many more together then :)

TS, if you're gonna stop watching Fushigi Yuugi just because of the "bad" quality, then i'm sure you're gonna regret it. :/ Yes, the quality is rather old as compared to the animes produced these days, but personally i think the characters don't look that bad at all!

I've watched a fair amount of romance series and Fushigi Yuugi is one of the few romance series that I've rated a 10/10. Give it another chance, if you would. =)

I'm probably going to continue , but finding a sub version probably make that time significantly shorter. I really don't like the dubs :( Yeah if you now somewhere good with subs , I will greatly appreciate it :) So yes , soon I will continiue the series , thanks for couraging me ! :)

I dislike dubs too! I watched it on DVDs, but took no time to find this site for you : http://www.animeseason.com/fushigi-yuugi-episode-1/

Alternatively you can try youtube too? My friend watched it there, and to top it off, she LOVES this series and was so glad I recommended this to her. Hope this motivates you to complete the series in no time! >=)

Well for these I don't really recommend, but I'm offering them because they fit the mold of action/romance and you could potentially like them...

Star Driver (terrible... but others do like it...)
Tenjou Tenge (driven on romance and has fights...)

I do recommend:
Jyu-Oh-Sei
Appleseed (very action packed/ deals with a relationship)
Steins;gate (more action in the middle on/relationship building)

*Dragonaut: The Resonance-->for me is good plus the ending is dramatic..
*Basilisk: Kouga Ninpou Chou--> is a good anime with a sad ending
*Eureka Seven

And I can't believe nobody has mentioned this one
*Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann
