romance and action orientated animes?

Looking for something new to watch and thought i'd explore some more romance heavy ones for a change! My main wants really is an anime that while focused on the action, romance is still a big part of the plot. A good example would be the 08 ms team or whatever it was called the gundam ova.. that really hit the spot with both the action and romance side of things as did Basilisk. My preferrence would be towards over the top action aka fate stay night/bleach/naruto etc and preferrably set in a fantasy world however i'm not too choosey. I noticed in a thread a bit down someone mentioned crest of the stars and the sequels, will look into watching them but is there any other recommendations... only other request would be for no childlike main characters (characters like naruto, al from fma etc. Also i'd prefer a non comedy one however I don't mind the odd jokes i'd say Bleach is where i'd draw the line with the humour to seriousness ratio.

mm I think one for you might be Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle though
Spoiler for Tsubasa, Romance:

Tsukihime is one that comes to mind with decent action and romance.

Bakemonogatari is probably one you'd like for the action + quantifiable romance.

Blood+ has a lot of action and has romance in it.

Escaflowne (not the film, the series)

The problem with these types of shows is that often the romance goes unresolved which is a big problem I have with them...

i agree with Jetbent on Bakemonogatari and Blood+.

Black Lagoon
Darker than Black

Yeah, I'd probably suggest Full Metal Panic!, I'd also second Crest of The Stars.

Some others:

Inuyasha (which probably matches your more detailed preference best)
Shakugan no Shana (also a pretty good match)
Starblazers (if you are willing to put up with 1970's animation style)

Ranma 1/2 might work, except it is a comedy- very heavy on the comedy

Maybe Change 1 2 3 which is a manga, (kind of heavy on the nudity though... )

Cross Game - A Story of Love, Life, Death - and Baseball. What more could you want?

Ah good call on Busou Renkin. Tsubasa Chronicle is a bit more slow paced though with regards to action.

Fushigi Yuugi - The manga is much better than the show. In Fushigi Yugi the main couple is in a deep, passionate, romantic relationship in a fantasy world. The manga is geeat.

Ayashi no Ceres - The Ceres Celestial Legend manga is much better than the show. The couple is in a deep, intimate, passioante, sexual relationship, romance/fantasy/action/horror.

Sailor Moon - The main couple is dating and in a relationship during the series.
