So I'm looking for something a little more mature, but I feel like what is officially labeled as seinen is a bit restrictive. I mean, I feel like something along the lines of Attack on Titan is a bit brutal for young audiences but its not officially Seinen. Just looking for something with a more serious tone that doesnt pull the punches. think along the lines of Elfen Leid. Doesnt have to be sexual at all, but that show was brutal...like painful to watch. Dont get me wrong, I like more lighthearted stuff, I watch Sailor Moon for the fond memories of being 10 but Im in the mood for something more serious.

Ive watched too many Animes! Im running out of ideas! Hoping some of you can think of some things I havent.

I already watched these which may come to mind quickly for you:
Btooom!
Attach on Titan
Black Bullet
Blassreiter
Just about everything from this season

Thanks guys! Im hoping some of you think outside my box!

The "official" recommendation thread is here /forumtopic-7173/recommend-me-an-anime-read-first-post.

Here's a recent entry answering someone else that could be similar to what you seem to want:

Sorry to close this on you, but it was reported.. and is covered by the Recommend me an Anime thread. But you did get some good suggestions, I think!

Still, do feel free to ask in the Recommend thread, assuming asharka's post didn't help.. I know there are tons of anime out there that fit your criteria.
