Recommendations for Fantasy/Supernatural/Sci-fi Anime?

I was just wondering if anyone had any good recommendations for me. I have watched Shugo Chara!, Tokyo Mew Mew, Cardholder Sukara, Sailor Moon, Chobits, Pretear, Fruits Basket, Blue Exorcist and Wolf's Rain. I have heard of Madoka Magica, InYasha, Naruto, Bleach, One Piece, Fairy Tale, D.Gray Man and Fullmetal Alchemist, looking for other recommendations.

I really only want to watch shows that involve Fantasy/Supernatural/Sci-fi elements with romance thrown in. I haven't heard of/watched anything other than the ones that I listed. They can be new or old, short lived or ongoing shows and include a "magical" element that isn't listed.

Thanks in advance!

    Seirei no Moribito - this has a wonderful fantasy world and a light romance throughout.

    Princess Tutu - It is set in a world where fairy tales come true, and has a very strong romance focus. It is a weird one, not many magical girl anime revolve around ballet. Still very neat package, though.

    Ayashi no Ceres - A dramatic romance anime with a neat fantasy backdrop.

    Noein: To Your Other Self - this is a general sci-fi, not a Mecha. It focuses on alternate world theory. There is something of an unspoken romance throughout.

    Kemono no Souja Erin - this is a really refreshing anime that has an extremely fleshed out fantasy world and a peaceful, sweet feel. The romance in this is rather understated, but present. This one and Serei no Moribito have some of the best female leads in all of anime.

    Spice and Wolf - a very playful romance series that mixes in old time Gods and economics

    Familiar of Zero - love/hate romance throughout, and a lot more comedy than the others I've mentioned. Fantasy.

    Mushishi - There is no other series quite like this one. It has some truly superb world building and fantasy creatures. Episodic in nature. Not all of the stories have love in them, but the ones that do are fantastic.

    Vampire Knight - this one is more supernatural than fantasy, and has a lot of gothic drama in it. The romance is very strong in this one.

    Karin - another vampire anime, but completely different from Vampire Knight. This is a light, tongue in cheek romantic comedy.

    Vision of Escaflowne - this is a mix between the magical girl genre that some of yours are (such as Cardholder Sakara, Sailor Moon, Pretear) and the scifi/mecha genre. Might be good to check this one out to see if Mecha would be something you'd like. This has a good romance throughout too.

    Source(s): Girl who Leapt Through Time - this is a really neat sci-fi movie with light romance. Kind've slice of life. Spirited Away - this is a Studio Ghibli movie revolving around Japanese folklore Voices of a Distant Star - this is only about 20 minutes long, but it is fantastic. A phenomenal love story set against a sci-fi backdrop. Hotarubi no Mori e - a sweet fantasy movie with a relationship somewhere between romance and very close friendship Code Geass, Gundam Wing, and Blood + would be good too. The first two are Mecha, the last is another Vampire Anime. These all have some form of romance, but focus more on action.

    The Armitage films would certainly fit. Black Magic M-66 probably inspired the Terminator films. Roujin Z If you liked Heavy Metal, you gotta catch Robot Carnival. Black Jack Project Blue Earth S.O.S. Now and Then, Here and There (Warning! This one is shocking and depressing. NOT FOR KIDS.) Memories (a movie) The Irresponsible Captain Tylor The Third: The Girl with the Blue Eye

    other good ones include aqurion (there are two so both are watchable) blue gander, rurouni kenshin, Magi (although its not science fiction its still worth watching and mentioning) dragonball z is the best anime of all time (IMO).....sword art online is perfect for you also.
