Exclamation Any anime?

All I've watched is Inuyasha and started Bleach.
I need a differnt anime than Bleach.

What I like:
Animies that date in a kinda "Middle Earth" time. (If they don't, unless they have every other thing I want, I might watch it.)
A love story involved overtime. (I don't like animes that just puts a relashionship out there like it's nothing. I prefer a love story that goes on for a while and the charaters don't like eachother, or don't relize it till later.)
Humor will be GREAT!
A fighting kinda animie. (Every episode has a fight, one episode or two can skip fights, but most of the animie evolves fighting)

What I prefer (DOES NOT HAVE to be in the anime):
The main charater is a boy. (Why? It helps with the love story in my optian. Doesn't have to be a boy)
The co-main is a girl. (Same reason as above.)
A love tranagle. (More insterting than just a love story)
I prefer it being matrue.

What I HATE!( Unless it comes with an exseption):
Anmies that plain out say who likes who in the first 20 episodes and then treat it like a love story. As in, the charaters say who they like in thier minds in the first 20 episodes >.>)
Animes in the old times as in like 1950. Bores me.
The charaters looking like kids.


Extra Info:
I've half-dropped Bleach since it didn't really catch my attenstion and there wasn't to much humor envolved.
Inuaysha is my perfect anime. It has a love story, good human, the show itself is matrue.

So..... Suggestions?

First off, I recommend that you stay with Bleach. The first 60 odd episodes were brilliant in my opinion. Some of the other arcs aren't so great, but the current one is pretty good also.

Anyways....

Clannad pretty much meets every one of your specifications, except for the 'middle earth' one. It's highly reputable in it's genre. Also contains themes of Slice of Life, Drama and a bit of Fantasy. Click here for the synopsis.

Middle earth? Meaning with like swords and bows and no cars?

Best possible choice IMO is:
Shounen Onmyouji (currently watching it and I love it!)
~has fighting a lot, and it's pretty good IMO~
~cute love story (it's not the main, but it's there)~
~main character is a boy~
~deals with the "middle earth" theme (if you're talking about no guns/cars and more like bows, swords, staffs, priests, demons, older era, etc)

Inuyasha is a good way to start/go.

Again if by "middle earth" theme you mean like feudal period go to this thread for some possible suggestions http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=96527

I'd start with Princess Mononoke myself. Easy to find and worth your time. The main couple is about twenty. Scrapped Princess, Twelve Kingdoms, and Moribito might also be appropriate.

Katanagatari might work for you.

Lets see... you might also like Shakugan No Shana, or Familiar of Zero.

Since you seem to have liked Inuyasha I'll also suggest you check out Ranma 1/2 (by the same mangka).

You might also like Soul Eater (although there isn't much explicit romance in that one).

If you set aside the Middle Earth thing I would strongly recommend Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood. You would also probably greatly enjoy Full Metal Panic even though that anime is more futuristic.

I'd suggest you check out the list I just gave you and watch 2 or 3 episodes each to see which ones you want to follow more thoroughly.

I don't like the main charater being a weakling ethier :/
Pointing that out ^^

As for the feduel ere or Middle earth thing, it DOESN'T HAVE to be in the feduel era. As long as it's not a everyday-life kinda story.
I tried Shounen Onmyouj.. It didn't catch my attenstion.
I tried Angel beat and it's an awesome plot.
Mostly I want an anime with a good plot, a bit of a love story and the main charater not to be a weakling :/

For Now I'm wwatching Angel beats.
I tried ranma 1/2, and it seems plain dumb top my eyes.
Seem childish same for the humor. Plus I prefer a mature(er) anime.

Angel Beats is not exactly very mature either. Try Gantz or Haibane Renmei for something more mature and similar to it.

And Ranma is storyless comedy of the 80's. Pretty ok for that time.

Spice & Wolf meets the all criteria you listed (though there's little fighting, people actually try and avoid it) .... though its so different from what you're used to or familiar with it might be interesting to watch your reaction. Katanagatari is also a good choice.

There's a lot of variety in anime... "narubleachblah" is just a small part of it.

By mature I mean more of an anime type of thing. Not a cartoon.
Not something like pokemon, or ranman.
I am new to anime so I am getting used to it. I'm still kinda trying to figure out what I like.
Thanks guys I got 4 more animes I need to watch now ^^

You might also like Guin Saga. However since it was recently licensed, it's not on the AS list any more. My guess is that you'll see a release from Sentai sometime in the next six to nine months.

Uhhh... I don't want a 100% love story. I prefer a anime with more action than love..
I also don't want an "everday life" Kinda anime where the charaters just talk.
I want adventure. Like a book :3

All the shows I recommended are adventure stories. I really think you should watch Princess Mononoke asap. Go rent it at a video store.

Seconding Guin Saga, it is good. Also totally middle earthy IMO, Utawarerumono.

You might enjoy Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann, if you dont mind mecha. Some sweet love stories. The lead has emo times, but grows out of them, bear with him

What some of you arnt getting, is that I don't want a total love story.
I love INuaysha and Angel beats.
Both of them have actian and comidy plus the plot isn't something you'd find in actual life.
Like going through a weel to transport you through time or going into an afterlife that acts a bit like a game.
Inuyasha has a main love story, but equals it out with enough action.
Angel beats has a slight bit of a love intrest, but ti was still awesome.

I don't want a full on love stroy. The actian has to balence out. Sometimes it's also vice verse.
I don't want full on action every second. I prefer animes that start out happy at the beggning of the epiosde and then troble happens.
I hate yaio/gayness if it goes to far.
I don't want an anime tht has the first episode only fighting or action. I want it to have an tiny "overview" and then a happy mood that turns sad. It's fine if it had fighting during the intire epiosde, I prefer a happy mood the first few epiosdes though.
I don't want an anime thats too hapopy.
I don't like fairytales with princess and princes. Seems bleh to me.

Where does "Angel Beats" fit into the "happy" mood? It's over-all anime was happy. It had good comidy and half the time most of the charaters are just having fun. The adventure part comes in when they acctually try to make a plan and try to do something. It's almost like a book

I don't want a anime that has to do with schools or everyday life unless it's something like yu-gi-oh, just better written.

Sorry if you guys are giving me theese animes. I'm still checking some out.

So you object to the Ranma 1/2 art style?

What does that have to do with maturity?

And how is anime intrinsically more mature than western cartoons?

Oh well. Whatever. I still think the recommendations I gave you tend to fit rather well with what you are asking for.

TTT is a great anime with great cast that fits within the realm of "middle earth"
TSB has a teenager cast but it fits with the "middle earth" setting.
And TLotLH has the same feel but I think it would best fit what your looking for.
