Went to go see the Hobbit, Watched all of the LOTR films.
Need for more High Fantasy. You know... Swords, Elves, Magic, Etc.

In need of some good Fantasy anime's.

I've seen Berserk, Tales of the Abyss, Princess Mononoke,Claymore and a few others.
Series are preferred but will watch movies as well.

Thanks :)

I hate to recommend it but It is swords, elves and magic.
Sword Art Online
The first arc is set on swords while the second arc includes all three.

12 Kingdoms - some of the best fantasy world-building out there, with very interesting characters and situations.

Revolutionary Girl Utena - This isn't adventure, but it qualifies for epic fantasy, for sure! It's also pretty psychological.

Seirei no Moribito - while not as action-paced as LoTR or The Hobbit (at least the Hobbit movie, the book has a lot less action), what action is there is awesome, and it defenitely will qualify for this.

Mmmm do you want anime?? Caus i know a lot of good fantasy stuff like u want but its manga :S...
Anyway if you want anime i recommend Fairy Tale,SAO .., Escaflowne.... Forgot the names of the other but, if your really into that type of fantasy i recommend you read MANGA theyre are a lot of manwha/manga storys so great that probably wont ever get animated even so they got so much potential anyways doesnt pop up much anime like that if it does ill post u ;D
Death is not what scares me it's being fogotten...

SHAME ON ALL OF YOU FOR NOT MENTIONING LODOSS.

The CLOSEST anime to Lord of the Rings is Record of Lodoss War. It's based on Dungeons and Dragons, which is in turn based on Lord of the Rings, so it's pretty much the only Western High Fantasy anime. In fact it might very well be the ONLY anime with dwarves.
OVA (Watch this one first): http://myanimelist.net/anime/207/Lodoss-tou_Senki
TV: http://myanimelist.net/anime/206/Lodoss-tou_Senki:_Eiyuu_Kishi_Den

Next would be Slayers- By the same people who made Lodoss, although it's a comedy.

Ancient book of YS, and Ancient book of YS 2. Maybe Heroic Legend of Arslan.

Lodoss-tou Senki TV(27) is kind of disappointing, I'm currently watching it. The same can be said about last two Slayers seasons.

Anyways, seconding: Slayers, Lodoss-tou Senki, Juuni kokuki, Seirei no Moribito.

I'm not a fan of Slayers at all but Lodoss on the other hand is pretty darn good, and as she says it's the one anime that stays closest to the epic high fantasy formula of Elves, Dwarves, Magic and so on.
