So a friend of mine recently got into anime, and she has asked me for some recommendations for some romance anime with as she puts it a "splash" of action ( I'm pretty sure she means having action in the background rather than the main focus)

Thing is this really isn't the type of anime I like, so I thought id ask all you lovely people in the forums for some suggestions?

Though not an exact fit, it might be worth having a look at Yona of the Dawn.

The heroine is a little oblivious romance-wise, but it's clearly there for the audience (though not fully resolved by the end of the existing season, there has at least been progress).

There are some significant spots of action, including some in which the heroine takes part.

There is a significant amount of questing, just getting from point A to point B collecting the things for the next stage of the story.

(One does hope there will be another season before too long, but I can't recall if I've heard any confirmed rumors beyond hoping).

Overall I'd guess that there might not be enough romance for it to exactly what she's looking for, but she might like it even so.

I'm sure I'll hear grief about it, but Sword Art Online is pretty decent if your looking for a "I'll save you!" kind of vibe. Still, looking for a decent romance/action that isn't a harem. Not that I'm against harems but I like a resolution.

Love Chunibyo & Other Delusions; Ah My Goddess; Happiness; Otome Youkai Zakura; Maoyu; and Red Data Girl, would seem to fit quite well.

Bakemonogatari works, if she doesn't mind a pretty dark storyline.

Akaneiro ni Somaru Saka might work, if the ecchi/harem thing isn't a problem.

Full Metal Panic! probably works as well--it alternates between rom-com episodes and action episodes.

I think The Princess and the Pilot & The Pilot's Love Song would be good bets
