    Wolf's Rain sounds interesting but i would also recommend you to watch
    Samurai Champloo ~ 27 epsiodes




    In the language of Okinawa, "champloo" means to mix things together. And that is what we have here, two insanely powerful samurai named Mugen and Jin. Mugen has the nose and instincts of a wild animal, as well as a rough and wild fighting style that's as powerful as it is uniquely his own. Jin's a bit more refined. The master swordman trained under a legendary warrior rumored to have never lost a fight, and people say he's even more powerful than his master.

    Wild-man Mugen and the cool and composed Jin seem like oil and water. Still, they end up traveling together after their paths cross by chance. But these two are far from friends. The only thing tying them together is the mysterious man that a young woman named Fuu is searching for. Their jouney is a modern road trip through the lens of a bygone era-a historical drama that shatters the classic conventions of the genre.

    If you can embrace the fact that this series make no conceivable sense then I recommend Bobobo-bo-bo-bobo. It is 76 episodes.

    That Bobobo-thing is an action, comedy and parody anime. Kind of like Gintama. That's not exactly what he was asking for :p

    It may not be exactly what he is looking for, but it is what everyone needs in their life. :P

    Wolf's Rain and Samurai Champloo are good suggestions though.

    Hmm..maybe Brave 10. Action, with a little bit of humor as every other anime usually has. It's watchable.
    Warning though, the anime ended before the manga.

    Brave 10

    D.Gray-man could be a possible candidate for what you're looking for. It has 104 episodes though.

    "D.Gray-man follows the adventures of 15-year-old Allen Walker, whose left arm can transform into a monstrous claw and destroy Akuma, evolving machines created by the Millennium Earl to help him destroy humanity. As ordered by his master General Cross Marian, Allen becomes an Exorcist, people who can destroy Akuma, for the Black Order, an organization attempting to stop the Earl. He becomes a powerful asset for the Order because he can detect disguised Akuma with his left eye. Allen is sent to recover pieces of Innocence, a substance that gives the Exorcists the ability to destroy Akuma. The Earl decides to call together the Noah Family, superhuman descendants of Noah who can destroy Innocence. Both sides start the search for the Heart, the most powerful piece of Innocence that will ensure victory to the side that finds it.
    During his search, the Earl begins killing the Generals, the Order's most powerful Exorcists. To protect them, the Order attempts to bring the Generals back to headquarters, and Allen and three other Exorcists are sent to search for the missing General Cross. During the search, Allen and Lenalee Lee are nearly killed, but they are saved by their Innocence, leading the Earl and Bookman and his apprentice Lavi, who are chronicling the war, to believe one of them possesses the Great Heart. Meanwhile, the Order learns that Allen is to succeed Nea Walker, a Noah that betrayed and was killed by the Earl, as the 14th Noah. This leads the Order to suspect that Allen might betray them, and he is eventually confined. The Noah frees him to rescue Allen from the Apocryphos, a sentient Innocence that guards the Heart, causing the Order to revoke Allen's rights as an Exorcist and treat him as a Noah."

    What about Mirai Nikki?... it is only 26 episodes just now, but from what I have seen it is pretty decent. I have the last few episodes to watch.

    Mirai Nikki is actually quite cool. The protagonist is just so fucking annoying and it has a shit ending IMO.

    Well, I don't know what the ending is, but yeah, the main character is a little bitch. I am still enjoying it though.

    What about Hunter x Hunter? They have remastered the old series which has improved the graphics significantly and it's actually quite interesting. Definitely worth the watch!

    Most action/adventure animes are generic shounens and lack drama, so it's kinda hard to know what you're really looking far.

    I keep meaning to start watching Hunter x Hunter. I'll get to it at some point. It is meant to be good.

    Em, I would recommend Outlaw star. If any of you haven't seen it then watch it! When I was younger I used to sneak downstairs at night to watch it... maybe it is just nostalgic for me. :P Although, it is not new.

    Has anyone seen Speed Grapher??? It is this weeks deal on Anime-on-line. I am wondering whether it would be 10 bucks well spent.
