I just finished watching Kill la Kill and I'm looking for a good action anime with a female lead but with no romance subplot, sadly this is very hard to find. Any suggestions?

Ghost in the Shell. Pretty much any of it's incarnations, although I'd recommend starting with either the original movie or the Stand Alone Complex series.

Comedy in these animes would be good but if there isn't it's not a deal breaker.

It's been a while since I saw it, but I think Jubei-chan would fit. I'd call it action/comedy. I don't remember there being any romance...but I dunno, maybe there is some dude who has a crush on her. It's in my queue and I really should re-watch it soon.

Black lagoon kinda has 4 main characters and the female is larger than life when she is on the screen in my humble opinion

Moribito (available on Hulu) immediately comes to mind. It definitely doesn't have the insane, over-the-top action or frantic pacing of Kill la Kill though; choosing to focus much more heavily on character development. There's just a small, if not negligible, bit of romantic tension though.

I'd also suggest Kyousougiga. It's style is a lot more reminiscent of KlK than Moribito.

Also, I've never seen it myself, but Jormungand (available through Funimation) would fit quite well if all you wanted was a pure action series.

Soul Eater Not and Read or Die are pretty good. Both include a decent amount of comedy and no romance. Read or Die actually has 4 female leads and Soul Eater Not has 3. KanColle is also all female based and more about the friendships than anything. Girls Und Panzer and Strike Witches fit too.

Claymore - there is a supporting male character who idolises the lead, but I don't think it ever developed to the romantic level.
Shadowskill - this also has a supporting male character but is mainly a big sister / little brother relationship.
Gunslinger Girl - series about a group of girl assasins and their male handlers; there is no specific lead as each story focuses on a different girl. A few of the girls have crushes on their handlers but I don't think it developed beyond that.

Medaka Box. It comes off as comedy for a good few episodes before the action rolls in.

Ok firstly let me just say I could suggest like 50 anime that aren't the load of disappointment that Kill la Kill was but as far as strong female leads here are a few.

Kara no Kyoukai aka In the Garden of Sinners


Black Lagoon


Jormungand


Modoka Box

Puella Magi Madoka Magica. 5 girls that kick ass. It doesn't look hardcore at first, but trust me, it gets really dark really fast.
