1. I don't really want anything mecha.

2. I want to find something preferably shonen, but not constant fighting. For instance, a few episodes may be spent on background, explaining a concept, or traveling. That way it's not just fight after fight.

3. Another theme I rather enjoy is pretty typical, but it's after a random event occurs a female has to move in with a male, sort of like Chobits, or Ah! My Goddess! Additionally, if the girl knows little about the world and is easily amazed that is a plus.

4. My anime list so far (Ignore my plan to watch): http://myanimelist.net/animelist/_Trafalgar_Law_

5. Thanks for the help everyone!

Lol what is up with that anime trailer? I looked it up, and it was like big monster, big monster, bad ass chick, big monster..... Little girls arm falls off. It looks like it may be pretty good though. I was just curious as to how they cut from all of that to a little girls arm falling off.

haha well it's based on a card game.. surprisingly high budget... anyway I think it fits your criteria. It has action and a girl(not the one with the detachable arms) who's not familiar with the world.

Another anime that I just remembered that somehow fits your criteria would be:

Hataraku Maou-sama!

It's not always about fighting aaand well they(not limited to the girl) are kinda new'ish to a different world/

Several fit your criteria pretty closely:

- Maoyu
- A Certain Magical Index
- Strike the Blood
- Valkyria Chronicles (if you like war-time action sequences)

I also know of a few that hit most of your criteria, but are solid shows:

- Spice and Wolf (a bit light on action, but if you liked Ah My Goddess, you'll probably like this)
- Trigun (pure action show, but smart; it's a classic for a reason)
- Full Metal Panic (there are mechs, but they play a minor role; the fish-out-of-water is the guy, not the girl)
- Familiar of Zero (again, it's the guy who is out of place, but if you liked both Ai Yori Aoshi and Sword Art Online... think of this as the intersection of those two shows)

And one other: If you want something else like Chobits or AMG!, try Please Teacher!. Don't let the plot summary fool you--its an excellent show. (If you like it, the same people did two others in the same world: Please Twins! and Waiting for Summer.)

I think I'll enjoy A Certain Magical Index, and Familiar of Zero looks funny. It reminds me of an old game based anime, but I can't think of the name of it, but basically a guy got sucked into a video game world and there was like a castle of sorts floating in the sky, and he spent his time trying to get there in hopes of returning to his planet.

Strike the blood, and Spice and Wolf I've seen bits, and pieces and plan to watch them later.
Trigun looked pretty good, but I couldn't find a solid trailer for maoyu.
The rest are like maybe's.
Thanks for the response though. I'm definitely going to check out A Certain Magical Index, and Familiar of Zero.

Please, Teacher looks good, but not the second one. I couldn't find a subbed trailer for the third one, but the one I did find looked pretty good.

The Devil's a part timer almost fits perfectly. I'm going to get it now. Thanks!
