Like the topic said, I'm kind of looking for historical-fantasy manga with romance (but it's okay if the romance just as a sub-plot) with strong heroine. If it's included with action it would be great. I'd like to read manga like Anatolia Story, Akagami no Shirayuki-Hime, Kanata Kara, and Reimei No Arcana. No harem, please (love-triangle is okay, but harem, ugh). With a good art too, hope is not so manly but it's okay if the story fits with taste smile

So, is there any suggest?

Yeah Rurouni Kenshin is definitely a classic ^_^ not sure if it's fantasy enough for you thiugh.

Sengoku Strays is fairly nice and has a good heroine to boot.

There's an anime "12 Kingdoms" (which might have a manga adaptation also?) worth checking out.

Immortal Rain?

I'm sure there are many others, so I bet you'll find something good smile

Second Basara. I quite like Dokuhime too, perhaps not strictly historical but it does have a historical vibe.

Fushigi Yuugi and sequel (the sequel is a lot better imo) Fushigi Yuugi: Genbu Kaiden
Hana to Akuma If I remember right, the age gap skeeves me out a little. I have the same problem with Adarushan no Hanayome, but some don't mind I guess.
Oedo wa Nemuranai!
Otogimoyou Ayanishiki *** I really recommend this one.
Ciel A bit slim on the romance.
Saiunkoku Monogatari Slim on romance, but lots of great stuff in this one. Viz is printing it in English, bit slow (scanlations slow too I think). The complete anime is out there fansubbed though.
Shinobi Life
Tenma no Ketsuzoku
The Bride of the Water God

Sakura Hime Kaden and Angel Sanctuary also fit, I think, but I haven't read enough of them to really recommend.

miriam and the two sequels

I've read that long time ago and that's one of my favorite actually. But it's not count of fantasy manga I think.

Here are some that I believe fit your criteria:
Fushigi Yuugi Genbu Kaiden
Romeo x Juliet
Michibata no Tenshi
Hyakunen Renbo
Zettai Heiwa Daisakusen
Apothecarius Argentum
Adarushan no Hanayome (rather than romance... it's more like fluff? The heroine's a bit too young for romance, haha. But the setting fits your criteria)
And why not give Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicles a try too, if you haven't read it.

Hope you like the recommendations! I like this genre as well. ^_^

Drop by my fanfiction page! biggrin One Piece, Hetalia, Bleach, Harry Potter and more!
