"Action/Fantasy/Sci-Fi" covers a broad swath of anime; can you give examples of some of your favorite shows to help narrow things down?

Barring that, here are some of my favorites that fall in those categories:

Sci-Fi
-------
Steins; Gate (time-travel)
Serial Experiments Lain (existentialist cyber-punk)
Ghost in the Shell (futuristic cop drama)
Eureka Seven (mecha action, with some romance and philosophical elements)
Gargantia of the Verderous Planet (mecha with some romance and "fish out of water" plot)


High Fantasy (clearly not set in our world)
----------------
Attack on Titan
Sword Art Online
Is It Wrong To Pick Up Girls In a Dungeon? (D&D-esque world and action)
Spice and Wolf (dialogue-heavy, relationship drama)
The World is Still Beautiful (political intrigue and romance)


Low Fantasy (set in version of our world; most of these have harem elements)
-----------------
A Certain Magical Index
Strike the Blood
High School DxD (extremely ecchi)
Trinity Seven
The Devil is a Part-Timer (light on action, heavy on comedy)
The World God Only Knows (spoof of rom-coms and harems)
