Club Prez, here to answer all your questions! ( ̄▽ ̄)ノ

What are your favorites? I won't be absolutely sure what to recommend without first getting a taste of the anime that you do like. (This is the main reason we are creating the "Big Board of Anime"^^)

Post your favs here or wait until we get the big board up, and I'll get back to you, k?

OR

Go to http://www.mangafox.com/directory/?advopts, check off the genres you like, and hit search!

You can find a lot of new and interesting manga just by searching on your own like this!

Hope this helps and good luck!

For Romance and Action, I suggest:

Chrono Crusade
--This one is one of my favorite love stories. There's the Order of the Magdala, which is a religious military organization that has special weapons and trained priests to combat the supernatural. The main character Rosette is a spunky, young priest who serves the Order of the Magdala. You follow her story as she searches for her brother Joshua, who you'll learn about as the story goes. If you like vampire looking devils (called sinners) and nuns carrying around heavy artillery, this is a good anime. The love story is of two people with forbidden love. It's pretty tragic. It will make you cry. I'd give this 5 stars.

Basilisk--This one is definitely one of my favorite love stories. If you like ninjas and romance, you'd like this. There are two clans: Iga and Koga who have been rivals for centuries. The two main characters are from opposing clans who plan to get married in order to end the feud and bring peace. However, even though this was decided among the clans, there are still many people who don't want the peace. The peace plans fall apart, and they are forced into battling a war, each with their 10 greatest ninja. This story is about how the ninja fight to the death, each with their unique abilities, all the while the two lovers are forced to combat against each other. One of my favorite lines is in the intro, "My beloved, prepare to die." Highly recommended. It will make you cry.

Blue Gender--This one was a very interesting anime. Not many people I know have heard of it and it's a shame. It's pretty action packed, and one of the main characters has quite a personality change as the series progresses (I love character development!!!) It takes place in some city in Japan (as they all do :]) and there is a sickness that cannot be cured. The main character Yuji, as well as a few hundred/thousand other people, go into a deep sleep because there isn't a remedy. The scientists promised to wake them up when they found the cure. It starts out he's woken up in the hospital/lab and he's still in the casket, being carried by strangers. He ends up getting out and meeting some people in military suits, who are taking him somewhere. The whole world is transformed and there are bug-like monsters everywhere called Blue (i think that's what they're called) along with their massive hives. You follow the main character as he learns about the civilization that grew while he was asleep, what the blue exactly are, and how that civilization is trying to rid the planet of them.

Saikano--this one is definitely swayed towards more of the romantic side. It's not on my top 5 list of favorite romances, but it certainly is one of the more tragic and romantic series. It's sends a very powerful message about how strong the feeling of love is. But not so much of being in love, as much as wanting to be in love. There's many ways to interpret it. As for the action side, the main character, Chise, turns out is a military weapon and she didn't know it and she's constantly being called to the front lines while her boyfriend waits for her. Slowly, she becomes more of a machine, and she doesn't know what's happening to her and doesn't know how to live.
It's a quite depressing story.

I hope that helps :]

sry for the late reply, I like animes like elemental Gelade(one of my favorites) , elfen lied, d.gray man, all .hack, 07 ghost, air gear(one of my favorites), alice academy, allison and lilia, basilisk, FMA, FMP, gundam00, code geass, Vampire knight(its ok), da capo, devil may cry, fate stay night(one of my favorites), rosario+vampire, ichigo 100%, code-e, mission-e, Zero no Tsukaima, Natsume Yuujinchou etc.

I hate shonen-ai and shojo-ai, too much ecchi is no good(like rosario+vampire s2) i also dont like sports anime except Basquash!

Oh btw I've seen basilisk and chrono crusade, saikano i've watched before but i dropped

nah, no worries^^ they were only suggestions after all.

Hmm, Air Gear. If you liked that, maybe you'd like Eureka 7 if you haven't seen it already.

Code Geass, you'd definitely like Death Note.
That's one of my favorites :]

haha, Fate/Stay Night was one of the ones I really liked too, but not a favorite. Comes extremely close. You may like Mai-Hime it's a little of a stretch.
The main characters are all female (which usually turns people away), and they have summons/avatars whichever you prefer to call them. In the anime they're called 'child'. They're all battling to the death like Fate/Stay Night. Mm.. maybe it isn't so much of a stretch.

I've never seen Rosario+Vampire or Vampire Knight but it seemed like you like vampires :P
Maybe Blood+ will fit your style. Seems like you like hack and slash sort of stuff too (judging from Elfen Lied).

If you want more of an explanation on any them, reply back^^
Or you could look them up yourself, either or.
I personally don't go by reviews. I like other people's opinions, unless they're people like "Naruto is the best, everything else sucks" or "Dramas are so gay" etc etc. I like to keep an open mind.

http://www.zomganime.com/anime/mai-hime/

It should also if you just go to www.google.com and type in "Mai-Hime episode #"
That's what I've been doing with Eureka 7 because I haven't found one website that hosts them all that are working properly.

Yes it is, but it's not a sequel or a prequel.
It's an alternate version of Mai-Hime. It has all the same characters, but with different personalities and different story in an alternate world.
The only thing that's the same is that they have powers and that they're the same character.

Mai-Hime is much better. I didn't enjoy Mai-Otome very much. Mostly because it was confusing like "are these the Mai-Hime people's kids... or? huh? They're so different? What, no she's supposed to be..."
It was displeasing seeing these amazing characters in Mai-Hime put into a story that didn't relate to it at all.
