    Default Looking for a manga that...

    Fuses fantasy and dark elements, with SOME romance. I've already done the search, and there is another thread that is SIMILAR to what i'm looking for, except the person is looking for the two elements separated. Manga's like fruits basket, and Ayashi no Ceres would be also accepted, seeing as that even though they are mostly romantic, there are the "darker" elements as the main plot story. Other manga's that i've read:

    FMWS
    Chrno Crusade
    Berserk
    Claymore
    D.grey-man
    Tsukihime
    ....
    and more that i can't think of right now.

    Thanks for your help ^-^

    Fushigi Yuugi and (especially) the Genbu Kaiden prequel.

    If you're willing to look at far-future sci-fi, as in far enough future parts of it are all but fantasy, there's Agharta.

    Hmm...try Vampire Knight or maybe love monster.
    Those are two good ones. Not very dark thought.

    I thought of Love Monster, but it's so danged FLUFFY I thought it out of bounds. I mean, yeah demons and monsters and vampires oh my, but Hiyo's complete ditziness trumps every dark element thrown at her. Those bondage scenes are the bubbliest, sparklingest, shoujo-y-est bondage scenes evah.

    A couple others, though: Aragami Hime, World End Fairytale, Blue Dragon (um, for values of romance that include an obsession with any and all boobs), and Hyakkiyakou Shou aka Selected Pandemonium. Superior looks like a possiblity, but scans have barely gotten started.

    ETA: Global Garden.

    It's a great manga, but I can't say it has a lot of romance. Some of the RLW manga has a good mix of fantasy and romance, but might not be dark enough.
