Just today, another LJ Memeber, vashutstampedo asked me an interesting question.

You're the creator of the community right?

Isn't there a certain anime-genre based on romance stories but with a lot of action elements? I'm a guy into that kinda thing. You know, the hero defeating impossible odds for the girl or sacrifices something/himself for her.


Here's my reply...

I'm not really certain if there is an actual GENRE for what you are looking for, there are, however, several titles that fit nicely into the category you are looking for.

Chobits, fits in that category.
Full Metal Panic does, to some extent.
Nadesico; certain parts of Ranma 1/2 and Inuyasha.
Castle in the Sky, Oh! My Goddess and Tenchi Universe all fit in there, as well. Don't bother with the other incarnations of Tenchi, though. Tenchi in Tokyo and Tenchi Muyo! aren't really good examples.

I am, also, going to put this in a post in the main community to see what everyone else thinks.


Anyone want to add to this? *cough*Jeri!*cough*

Thanks!

Ja!

I would add Steel angel Kurumi, Rizenmine and Rozen madien to that

Mostly the guy overcoming himself (like Chobits...)but with action involved.

Course Love hina has alot of action also. All aobut beating on Keitaro

alas your icon (aoi) does not contain much in the way of action

That's true, though Kaoru does get beaten on by Miyabi a little bit.
I didn't really think to add Kurumi in, though admittedly, I should have.

Rizenmine is really just Echii, but if you get the chance check rozenmadien out. Amazing show. Enough so I will rewatch it occasionally
