Anime with western style theme!

I am looking for a fantasy that has a western style theme with swords and armour and castles and such.

Any suggestions??

Thanks

Nichole

Obligatory suggestion: Berserk.

Amazing series, though it's highly likely that you've already seen it if you're interested in the genre.

Good Witch of the West - very much a western-style romantic fairy tale.

Murder Princess anime
Plot Summary: In the land of Foreland a coup d'état has occurred and the princess, after witnessing the death of the King, is on the run. She meets with battle-hungry bounty hunter Falis, and with a twist of fate they both switch souls, making Alita the maid of the now princess Falis. Named for her bravery in confronting the enemy as ‘Murder Princess’, Falis must continue to be the princess as well as confronting any new opponent that comes to her way.

Scrapped Princess - involves some mecha and magic too

Claymore - i don't remember any castles but it definitely has swords and armour

The currently airing Guin Saga is definitely a contender in this category. It's based on a series of fantasy novels dating back to 1979 that had a lot of influence on Japanese RPG designers at places like Squaresoft. Royalty, swordfights, mythical characters, it has it all.

Not to threadjack, but does anyone know of an anime that has a Western setting?

Not western as in King Arthur, swords and shields and knights, but Western as in six-shooters, cowboys, horses, the Wild West shit.

Oh and I didn't like Grenadier. I can only take so many doses of gag boobs before I explode.

Cowboy-western:

Trigun Slapstick/action/drama, varies from very silly to very serious

Saber Rider and the Star Sheriffs (Note - I have never seen this, nor do I plan to, but I find the name and concept amusing in a dumb kind of way)

Here's one, although it's only a 1-episode OVA: Early Reins
