Talking Dark Supernatural Romance anime/mangas

I'm looking for a dark, action, supernatural, romance anime/manga. Something like Kaze no Stigma or Asura Cryin'. I prefer it to be serious but I don't mind some comedy. Oh and please no wimpy main characters. In my opinion it's really overused. Finally I would like the main character to be slightly evil(doesn't have to be though).

If you want really dark, then try Ookami no Monshou. Over 18 though.

Does Ga-Rei Zero count? The main character is the female though, the romance kind of plays big role in the whole conflict, it is supernatural, drama and the heroine goes evil...

Has comedy in the middle but drama is more striking.

I recommend Kara no Kyoukai. It's a series of seven films, each about murders that are taking place through supernatural means. The protagonist is Ryougi Shiki, a girl that has been raised in a family of demon hunters and has the ability to see the death of everything through her Mystic Eyes of Death Perception. She also has an almost insatable urge to kill. It definitely has some terrific animation:
Spoiler for sample:

Darker Than Black- There are these people name contractors that have super powers. One in particular is name Hei. He is the strongest of them all and the main character. Dont expect much romance in it but there is a kiss but not anything special. Highly recommended since you like Kaze no stigma

Highschool of the Dead- If you call Zombies "Dark". It is when a city is infested with a disease where if u get bitten by a zombie, you become one. i Think 5 students and 1 nurse go through many tough descisions to stay safe. The main character you can say is strong but he is a normal highschool student so basically the other students are equally strong. This is my favorite.

Death Note- A highschool finds a book called "Death note" and can control peoples death by looking at there face and name. He tries to make the world a better place by killing all criminals but many people became afraid and Detectives try to find who is killing the criminals.
People Like this alot so.

Lunar Legend Tsukihime- A vampire anime. It is about a boy whos in highschool. His life changes when he killed a girl and started living with his sister. Has a mystery feeling to it. Also it has romance

Blood+- Never really watched this but i watched some of it. The main character is girl who lives with her family and does not know much about her past. One day she finds a man who plays a violin and it changes her life. She remembers her past and she kills these monsters.

Elfen Lied- It is girl named Lucy who has this power and uses it to kill but she loses her memory and becomes a completely different person and is taken in by a boy and a girl. But they did not know she is a murderer and the evil lucy is note gone yet. This is a very gorey anime.

These are anime and all dubbed/subbed
Hope you like these recommendations

All these are dark and have a hint of romance in it. I do recommend High school of the dead though and Darker than black.

Dark, Romance, Action, Supernatural
Denpa Tenki no Kanojo - One of the best OVA's I have ever watched and it's only 2 episodes. Has everything you're looking for and more. Both OVA's center around murders that happen in the area and the mystery around them. The main characters are in high school.

Ergo Proxy - Hints of romance, I watched it a long time ago so I don't really remember what happens, I just remember thinking it was pretty good.

Shikabane Hime - Light hints of romance.


If you like these suggestions I have more! Most do not have romance though.

Also second Darker than Black - Watch 1st season, gaiden OVA then 2nd season. (2nd season is kind of dissapointting though.

Phantom: Requiem for the Phantom- I just started watching this, dont look for real romance here. Though it is about a man whos life changes forever after he sees a murder. First 3 episodes are boring but keep watching because it become really intresting

^Why everyone say that first episodes were boring, I loved them

But yeh I second it even though romance is not huge and it is gun action, not supernatural.
