Possibly you’re an activity buff who likes a decent romantic tale. On the other side, possibly you’re a miserable heartfelt who gets exhausted with commonplace, slice of-life settings. In the event that both of these portrayals fits, you should watch action romance manga, a type that will make your heart pound in a greater number of ways than one.
The best action romance manga consolidate all that is incredible with regards to the two types while nixing the irritating stuff. They place equivalent worth on the battle scenes that make activity anime so astonishing and the genuinely convincing romantic tales that exist at the core of romance. The most scandalous model is InuYasha – a tale about a high school young lady looking for otherworldly things with the assistance of a half-evil presence who she’s falling head over heels for – yet there are a lot of other extraordinary action romance manga that fit the bill.
On the off chance that this kind sounds like it’s a good fit for you, then, at that point, you may before long track down another most loved manga.

6. Record of Grancrest War
Chaos ruled the world once upon a time. One of the many characteristics of this enigmatic world is chaos. Its concentration distorts natural laws, resulting in the emergence of demons and natural disasters, which people refer to as “the scourge of Chaos.” Then “a man with a holy seal” appeared and “returned the order.” He was referred to as the Lord. He was the only one who could use the seal, shielding people from Chaos. People’s territories expanded instantly as a result of his actions. So it must be with the Lord.
However, everything has a positive and negative side. When the level of Chaos was reduced, the Crests became tools in power struggles. Everyone is currently divided between the Fantasia Union and the Factory Alliance. Over time, the rulers of the two power blocs decided to arrange the marriage of their heirs in order to unite and complete the creation of the Great Seal – a symbol of order for eternal peace.
However, both dukes were deposed, and new forces were unleashed on their domains. At the heart of this conflict was a Magical Academy student named Siluca, on whom the earl named Lord Villar cast his gaze. Siluca’s mission was to reach an agreement with Villar, and she was surrounded by hostile soldiers on her way to Altirk (where Villar ruled), but Lord Theo came to her aid. And so their adventures begin.
The series begins in September 2005 in Okinawa City (Koza), which is located on Okinawa Island near the US Kadena Air Base.

Her happy life is shattered, however, when she is attacked by a Chiropteran, a hematophagous bat-like creature that feeds on human blood. Saya discovers that her blood causes their bodies to crystallise and shatter, making her the only one capable of defeating them.
Saya sets out on a journey with her family, friends, allies, and her chevalier Haji to rid the world of the Chiropteran threat and reclaim her identity, armed with her special katana. The journey reveals the background history of the Chiropterans as well as Saya’s mysterious past, which dates back to the mid-nineteenth century. Saya travels around the world in the series, from Japan to Vietnam, Russia, France, and finally the United States.

But Kenshin’s past will not leave him alone, and with old rivals resurfacing, groups attempting to disrupt the hard-won peace, and those eager to face the legendary Battousai all chasing after Kenshin, can he protect those he cares about while keeping his oath?
