Hi there! I'm really new to anime, and I was hoping you guys could recommend me a show or two.
So far I've watched (and loved) Bodacious Space Pirates, Golden Time, and La Corda d'Oro. I see a lot of shows with... you know, a strong fantasy element. But I don't know where to start, because the descriptions of a lot of shows make it sound overly complicated and only about the magic or the demons or what-have-you.
For example, I started watching Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions until people started talking about priestesses and such without explaining themselves.
What is a magic/fantasy show I should start with? Thanks!!
(Yes, I've heard about Attack on Titan, and I'm about to start it.

Chuunibyou is a story about make-believe, basically. So they're just making all that up as they go along.

In case you're watching the current season that's airing now and being simulcast by Crunchyroll though, there's a previous season that you can find on Hulu that you should watch first that'll explain a lot about what Chuunibyou is.
