Anime/Manga Needed

Hi, I'm looking for a good anime/manga that has plenty of action, characterization, and romance. Here's a list of some I've already seen/read:

Air Gear
Ghost in the Shell
Cowboy Bebop
Kenichi (personal favorite)
12 kingdoms
Code Geass
Ah! My Goddess
Buso Renkin
Rurouni Kenshin
Anything Mobile Suit Gundam
Death Note
Fooly Cooly
Hajime no Ippo
Everything by Miyazaki
Strawberry 100%
welcome to the nhk
Wolf's Rain
Record of the Lodoss War

I have different reasons for liking these, but one of the main things that unites all of them is good characterization. That's what I'm really looking for.

Some others that i can think of atm are Gundam Seed / Destiny, Spice and Wolf, Fate Stay Night, Shakugan no Shana and D Gray Man.

For mangas there arent any finished that i can recommend you but for ongoing ones i would suggest Shin Dark, Aiki, amatsuki, Kekkaishi and if you like drama / romance / slice of life i would recommend Bitter Virgin.

Everything I'm recommending below include characterisation. The exception is probably Mushishi, as there's more about other characters and flashback of main character then the development of the main character. But the anime itself is worth a watch. It's stunning beautiful in its stories.

Since you like Naruto, you might like Hunter x Hunter: action/ a bit of comedy.

And since you like 12 kingdoms, you might enjoy Mushishi (little gems in life/supernatural), Last Exile (steampunk, adventure), Scrapped Princess (sibling love, fantasy/sci-fic, action).

Other recommendations:
Eureka Seven - mecha (refreshing mecha design), romance, action, adventure.
Full Metal Alchemist - fantasy, sibling love, action.
Black Lagoon - action, action and action! romance.... um, a bit, developing.
Zegapain - mecha, romance, action. Beward of twists and twists and twists.

I'm really enjoying Hunter x Hunter right now. Thanks for the reccomendation. It is actually resembles Naruto with all that exam stuff but I liked the way Hunter x Hunter did it better.
