Hello, I'm looking for some recommendations for romance animes to watch.

I personally am not a fan of Harem or love-triangles. I feel as if they really weigh down the whole point of romance in an anime.

I've haven't watched too many animes, my list being:

Bleach - (Really like this kind of action it has a mix of drama/hero, but it lacks romance.)
Attack On Titan - (Once again, amazing style of action and drama)
SAO - (I've only seen the first season and I can say this anime is basically the perfect blend for what I'm looking for great action/tough guy hero with some drama and an amazing relationship. Not sure if the second season can live up to this.)
Eureka 7 (Loved the first one, thought the story was amazing. I have a thing for Mecha style animes)
The Familiar of Zero (I like this anime... when it's being serious, but the Harem and Comedy really drags me out of it. I am not sure in anyone else feels this way about it.)

I am sure their are some others I have watched.

I plan to get to Clannad, seeing how everything I've read about it pretty much suggest it is probably one of the best romance animes out there, but I'm more interested in finding some with action/fantasy in it.

I'm looking for romance animes that have a serious relationship in it with no harem if possible. I don't mind comedy to some level, but I feel as if a lot of animes over do it. I like the hero aspect, things like showing up in the niche of time. Fighting to protect the main female character at all cost. SAO did a great job with this in my opinion as did Eureka 7. I also like very well dragged out plots and characters. I want to feel as if the character grows with each event/episodes and so does the relationship(s). I feel as if The Familiar of Zero would have done a much better job if they dimmed down the comedy, threw in way more serious moments, and not feel like ever plot twist or dramatic event had to be crammed into one or two episodes.

I feel as if their are little to no animes out their which fit my preferences or I'm probably just asking for too much.

So if anyone has any real-heartwarming-tearjerking animes with no love-triangles.

Suggestions would be awesome.

Thank you! :]

Lots of good ones suggested already.

With Clannad, it can take a few episodes to get into it, but the second season is amazing. And if you like it, check out Kanon and Little Busters.

If you like SAO and Familiar of Zero, check out Strike the Blood and Full Metal Panic; they are also a good mix of romance and action.

Also, let me second Toradora; it's a pretty iconic romance anime for a reason, and a great place to start. If you like it, try Golden Time.

Also, there are several slightly older romance anime that are classics for a reason: Ah My Goddess, SA:Special A, Maid Sama, Fruits Basket, Kare Kano, Maison Ikkoko. All are good adaptations of great manga.
