Smile Anime Similar to Guilty Crown

I just finish watching Guilty Crown up to the lastest episode and i really like it. Is there any more anime out there that is similar to it.

- Awesome Action Fight scene (it dosnt have to be like Guilty Crown, where the fight scene is like gun firing, missile blowing) it can be like naruto or bleach kinda fight style. But i do like the futuristic time like the anime take place in a modern time or futuristic time where there train, tv, cars and people wear modern cloth style. rather then old historic times.
- A little Romance to it like Shu and Inori
- A little Violent - a little bloody, people dieing - something to feel sad about
- Great story line
- Awesome cool looking Character design like how Shu is

Plz dont suggest code geass. Im not a fan of Mecha "But Guilty Crown has Mecha in it" I know, a little Mecha in it like Guilty Crown is fine but i dont want the whole story to revolve around Mecha.


EDIT: Any Romance ~ Action
- No mecha
- No harem

Try Sacred Seven : the 2011 12-episode supernatural action TV anime is centered on a highschool boy named Arma who's avoided by everyone in his school because he was responsible for killing several students in a certain incident that happens some years ago. One night, he meet a young girl named Ruri who has some powers and ask him to take her powers. However, Arma refuses this request proposed by Ruri and runs away. The next night, Ruri gets attacked by a monster before Arma gives some of her powers and save her. It has loads of good fights, some romance, little portion of mecha and could be bloody at times. Not to mention with a great storyline and good-looking characters.

The same goes for Senki Zessho Symphogear : the 2012 ongoing 12-episode (only 7 episodes are released at the moment) supernatural science action TV anime is centered on a highschool girl named Hibiki who participated on a concert held by a duo of female singers known as Zweiwing. However, a group of aliens known as "Noise" kills everyone except Hibiki and Zweiwing. The latter were turned into warriors singing and fighting noise at the same time. However, one of them died in order to protect Hibiki. 2 years later, a piece of fragment appears inside Hibiki's body and it was supposed to contains some powers held by a dead girl 2 years ago. It has loads of good action scenes, great storyline, good-looking characters, few bloody scenes but do not have romance in it, not to mention that this one lacks mecha.

I recommend Darker than Black. It fits all your requirements.

I would also recommend To Aru Majutsu no Index. (Well YMMV on the storyline but if you liked Guilty Crown...)

You know there's a side story called To Aru Kagaku no Railgun that focuses exclusively on Mikoto, right?

Let's recommend the classic one called S-cry-Ed.

mm, I'd say Macross Frontier, Gundam Seed (but it is full Mecha so .. ) and Full metal Panic (I and III season). These are quite well-known, and lookin at your requirements this is the right order FMP, Macross and Gundam Seed. But I bet you have already watched two out of three of them.
Oh, then you could try Chrome Shelled Regios (no mecha), but IIRC it has an open ending (to a second season, unheard so far) and if you could stand the ugly old fashioned design style then I'd suggest The Vision of Escaflowne. And the last is Phantom:_Requiem for the_Phantom. It has more blood, no mecha, no futuristic settings.
edit: forgot to say that Regios has not so much romance in it IIRC.

when i read the title haha...

I'm going to recommend Code Geass anyway, because you don't seem to have seen it and the whole story does not revolve around mecha. It'd be a shame to miss because of some misconception.

My other suggestion is Noein. It deals with a girl and her friends when they get involved with a war between two different alternate dimensions from the future. It's a bit old, and the character designs are weird, but damn does the story, action, and music make up for it (if you mind that sort of stuff anyway). Overall, it is downright epic. Highly recommended by me

If Trudinh wants to get into the Macross franchise I strongly suggest they watch the original series, SDF Macross before jumping on one of the sequels.

Like the OP said, he wants little mecha, not the whole story involving mecha I think.

I strongly second S-cry-Ed.

I'd also recommend Buso Renkin.

Ga-Rei Zero has all the requirements the OP listed, except maybe romance. For action scenes, though, you don't get much better than Ga-Rei Zero, imo.

To tell you the truth I've never watched the original series, so that's why I didn't suggest that.

And I wasn't trying to get him into any franchise, Macross nor Gundam. I'm not into them either. It's just that MF is not really mecha centered and has enough romance and fighting. As Full metal panic, but a more subtle romance. As Code Geass, which probably should be his first choice. In all these three anime I'd say that the mecha factor is not really the main point. It's more an accessory. In contrast to Gundam Seed who is full mecha centered, but in some way it has similarities with GC. But probably here I'm strongly biased by the pink/sing factor

what i mean by similar to guilty crown is that it dosnt have to be like same storyline and stuff ( with rebellion, guy is weak and and become strong when meet girl, japan being in chaos, government take over.

i want is an anime that have these feature

- Awesome Action Fight scene (it dosnt have to be like Guilty Crown, where the fight scene is like gun firing, missile blowing) it can be like naruto or bleach kinda fight style. But i do like the futuristic time like the anime take place in a modern time or futuristic time where there train, tv, cars and people wear modern cloth style. rather then old historic times where people wear robe and living in temple like place and ride horses.
- A little Romance to it like Shu and Inori or yuji and shana or aria and Kinji or Taiga and Ryuuji
- bloody battle - people dieing ( not like some kids show where the worst can happen is someone getting a booboo )
- Great story line
- Awesome cool looking Character design like how Shu is

Darker than Black is about what you want, I think. Same with the Black Lagoon series. Beyond that you kinda have to look into older series (like maybe Witch Hunter Robin, Blue Seed, etc.), because for the most part the kind of action you're looking for has pretty much been "out of fashion" since 2005 or so; if you want "real violence" -- but also don't want mecha, etc. -- you'll have an easier time finding it if you look at stuff made in the early 2000s and late 90s.

Eureka Seven is probably the closest thing you can find to GC in terms of story (GC is like 60/40 Eureka Seven and Code Geass, imho) but probably isn't what you want; the romance is a little heavier than in GC, the overall mood isn't as serious, and the action isn't as hardcore (almost no major characters ever die, with a few exceptions the "deaths" are due to mecha blowing up, etc.).
