Hi! smile
So, here I am again and I hope you can help me. I'm in the mood to read romance (again) with a little bit of action/adventure/fighting. The mangas I read that remind me of what I'm looking for are Grand Sun, Kanata Kara, Superior (and its sequel), 1/2 Prince, Sword Art Online and so on. I also need inspiration to write, so if you know something along the lines of those I mentioned that it's really good and you think I have to read, please, suggest. I appreciate every suggestion and I'll add it to a manga list so I won't forget them to be able to read it later.
Even though I prefer finished mangas, I won't be that picky this time because I know it may be hard to find this theme, so I don't mind reading something on-going (as long as it is really good and it's able to captivate me). And I don't like shoujo-ai, shounen-ai, yuri, yaoi, hentai, lolicon, shotacon, mechas, aliens, gore and incest. My lists are available to check, if you need.
I hope you can help me! Thank you!

Tokyo Crazy Paradise is a good action romance manga, same author as Skip Beat.

Other series that I read and fall on the same category are:
Hana no Kishi
Destination Heaven Chronicles
Red Lion
Oresama Teacher - slow romance

Chrono Crusade good, but has very few romance if I recall

I haven't finished reading those, but they might fit as well:
Erementar Gerad

Hmmm, maybe you should try Otogimoyou Ayanishiki or Miriam. They are from the same mangaka that did Kanata Kara and they both have action and romance. smile

Change 123(finished)
Full Metal Panic!(finished, however there is a sequel)
Full Metal Panic! Σ
Eden no Ori
Wolf Guy - Ookami no Monshou(finished)
Battle Royale(finished)

The last two might be a bit too violent for your tastes though.

Oh, thank you! There were some really good suggestions that I didn't know about, no matter how much I searched. I added them to my list to start reading them today.
If you know anything that hasn't been mentioned yet, please add. I appreciate it!

Kokou no Hito One of the best mangas i've ever read the romance is a heart-touching one but it doesnt focus on that tho. the action and adventure mix is so unique and exciting. you will enjoy this manga from the start to finish a true masterpiece!

Holyland the romance starts at the middle but it got what you are asking for... the action is a good one i enjoyed it alot

Thank you!

I recently watched Sword Art Online (the anime) and it was similar to what I'm looking for. Adventure/action romance. So anything like that would be great!

Vampire Juujikai is not for me at all, since I hate alien related themes... Full Metal Panic and Battle Royale aren't what I'm looking for either (one has mechas, the other one has gore).
Tokyo Crazy Paradise... Well... I can't read that, doesn't matter how much I try. It doesn't captivate me... Red River falls into that category as well. I started reading it and it was soooooooo dramatic it got me turned off... Maybe I can finish it some day. I know it's one of the must-read mangas.
I already read some of your suggestions too.

If you know anything, please, suggest. I'm looking for something new to read =)
