Looking for romance/adveture/fantasy anime

I am looking for an anime like Shakugan no Shana. I mean, I am looking for a series that has romance, adventure and fantasy, and some comedy, and if possible good artwork.

Can anyone give me any suggestions? Thanks in advanced!!

EDIT: maybe I'll leave a list of my personal tastes, that certainly can help:

So, I have tried to watch Zero no Tsukiama, but I don't know why, that series never grabed me that much... maybe it is because of the artwork, of maybe because she's a standart shoujo heroine.

I liked Kaze no Stigma, even though I hated the artwork, but enjoyed the plot. The romance thing kept me glued to the series, but in the end I was hoping to watch a second season, but since the mangaka died.

I also watched Yoake Mae Yori Ruri Iro Na and thought it was OK. Liked Sola, but hated the end, it was soooo sad...

Also I began to watch Kamichu!, but I quit at episode 5, it's not what I am looking for...

Maybe this helps

Ichiban Ushiro no Daimaou ~ has everything you're looking for but it has ecchi in it (personally I think it would have been better off without it)

Omamori Himari ~ also has everything you're looking for, just wish it was longer to pursue the some-what romance

I would recommend Spice and Wolf, it seems like it fits all of your requirements. The romance in it is really well done.

Spoiler for Series Summary:

I'd second Fate/Stay Night and Inuyasha . Also I'd say you might also like Mai-Hime.

Thank's everyone! I will take everyone's advice and take a look at each and every series you named.
For now I am watching Shingetsutan Tsukihime and I am loving it! Kind of reminds me of Elfen Lied... Only the last episode to watch!

Since you liked Shakugan no Shana, To Aru Majutsu no Index is a must watch. It fits perfectly into your list of preferences. Also, it's produced by the same studio who did Shana (they even have the same publisher), so you can expect some great levels of epicness.

Fushigi Yuugi Fushigi Yugi is a great series, the manga is so much better and longer than the anime. The couple are in a deep, passionate, committed relationship. In the manga the couple are engaged. An amazing romance/fantasy.

Ayashi no Ceres Ceres Celestial Legend is an amazing romacne manga. In the manga, the couple are having sex, dating and have a passionate love affair and a pregnancy. Romance, fantasy, horror, sex, action.

Sailor Moon An excellent romance. The manga is much better than the anime. The couple are boyfriend and girlfriend, husband and wife, get married, have a child, travel to the future, becoem king and queen, reincarnated past life lovers.

Black Bird A good romance/fantasy manga.

Wild Act A romance/action manga, the couple is having sex and in a deep, committed relationship.

Land of the Blindfolded Sweet romance/fantasy manga.

Oh my bad... I didn't mention every series I've watched. I just mentioned the ones people usually recomend. So, I already watched Fushigi Yuugi, Ayashi no Ceres, Sailor Moon, Spice and Wolf and Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles.

JRendell: I've watched Tsukihime and I loved it! I was very sad with the last episode... But thanks!

Doryn: I've started watching To Aru Majutsu no Index (only 'till episode 4) and I dare say that is exacly what I was looking for. thank you so much!

Bosou Renkin
Baka To Test To Shoukanjuu (sadly not mainly focused on romance, more ecchi. Though It highly fits your requirements)
Seto No Hanayome
To Love Ru, I highly recommend.
Sora No Otoshimono
Sumomomo momomo (one sided love)
DearS (not sure on the romance, been a while since I watched.)
Girls Bravo
Onegai Teacher

Trust me on these, all I watch is romance. And fantasy is my favourite sub-category under romance
