I just recently finished Claymore and i loved it. It would be great if anyone could make a list of anime with the attributes listed below.
1) Set in past. No guns!
2) Strong character development
3) Gore & blood
4) Strong relationships which can be emotional
5) when the main character battles the antagonist, the battle must not always be easy and predictable
6) No Vampires OR samurais!!
7) A little romance is preferred, but not needed
(It doesn't matter if the protagonist is a guy or girl)
Thank you so much!!!
