Techno-fantasy

Pretty simple request, I'm looking for what might best be described as, as the topic title says, "techno-fantasy". It's a pretty broad range including both the sort of "science fantasy" you see in things like Star Wars, Outlaw Star or just about everything Tenchi (where it could pass for sci-fi but often seems like high fantasy in space) to the more "fantasy with gadgets" type stuff in Dragon Century (part 2) and Final Fantasy: Legend of the Crystals, as well as everything in between. Basically anything that combines high tech with magical fantasy content.

I'd include other examples but for the moment the only other items I can think of are the Nanoha franchise and DBZ/S.

If you liked Outlaw Star, there's also "Angel Links", which is set in the same universe (though it's not as good as Outlaw Star), this was called
the "Toward Stars" universe, which was supposed to be the setting for more different series', but only the aforementioned shows were ever
set in it. I'm not sure why the idea fizzled.

Tons of stuff, thank you, but I feel like you may be casting a much wider net than I was asking for. As far as I remember, for instance, there was little to no fantasy in Cowboy Bebop. It was all sci-fi. Outlaw Star on the other hand had Taoist mages and magic guns and a variety of other definitively fantastic elements. Basically, Star Trek is sci-fi, but Star Wars is science fantasy.

And yes, just about anything Final Fantasy by default is bound to be techno-punk fantasy. I'm not a huge fan of the newer stuff, but that's just my old-school hand-drawn-loving aesthetic, nothing to do with the subject matter itself.
