I just want to watch something I have not watched before. I like action/adventure series I like some romance only shoujo or shounen ai no normal shounen romance. I like some slice of life and school life but do not recommend it because I drop most of the ones I try to watch I find them boring for the most part. I really really hate ecchi and harem anime the only harem I will watch is reverse harem. I like seinen series for a more mature type of story and by mature I mean action violence and no other types of mature features. The anime that I like that I would like something similar to what is listed below.

go from my animelist please

On the more Shounen/Seinen end of things:

- Trigun (Sci-Fi, post-apocolyptic, Western feel. Classic action anime.)
- Full Metal Alchemist
- Full Metal Alchemist: Brotherhood
(yes, those are separate series; they start in the same place, based on similar main characters, but diverge wildly, and both are excellent. FMA was the first anime made; Brotherhood sticks closer to the manga source material. Personally, I prefer Brotherhood, but opinion is split.)
- Ghost in the Shell (start with the original movie--if you like it, move on to the tv series and/or the sequels.)

On the Shoujo side of things:
S.A.: Special A
Maid-Sama
(Those two shows have two of the stronger female leads you'll see in a Shoujo anime.)
Ah My Goddess (actually, I'm not sure which age/sex category AMG technically fits in--it's a classic though, and draws from both shoujo and shounen tropes. But don't worry, there is no harem in sight, and My Little Monster had more fan service.)

How about Hanasaku Iroha?it's a slice of life and I find it to be quite a gem.

White album 2 is a great shoujo romance
the first Season of Hayate the Combat buttler is a shounen romance and sort of a harem, but it's funny as hell and itsa actually pretty light on the romance.

Also, a bit of a nit pick, but Black bullet is a seinen.

I'm guessing that you have already seen it based on your relitively large list, but if you havent, I strongly recomend Angel Beats!
(I feel bad for forgetting it the first time, I's one of my favorite shows)

Ah, you want obscure, got it...

Try Kimikiss: Pure Rouge. One of few dating sim inspired shows to not be a harem, and has shoujo sensibilities.

I don't see Kotoura-San or One Week Friends on your list; both are flawed but solid, if you haven't seen them. And I'm assuming you've seen or already heard of Eureka Seven.

Full Metal Panic is a solid non-harem action , though I'm guessing you've seen it given your list.

If you liked SAO, try A Certain Magical Index.

If you like off beat mech shows, try Star Driver. (Mech with shoujo sensibilities)

Samurai Champloo is an off beat samurai action series, but quite entertaining.

Oh, and it's hard to track down, but if you like psychological thrillers, watch Monster.

Oh, and duh, if you haven't seen Fruits Basket or His and Her Circumstances, they are both Classic Shoujo.

For shoujo you could try Love, Chunibyo and Other Delusions. It's pretty good and based on what you like I think you will like this as well. But they're in high school so maybe not? It's kind of difficult when you say you dislike slice of life or high school life shows but then list My Little Monster, Say I Love You, Blue Spring Ride, etc. as shows you liked.

Nagi no Asukara might be another. It's not harem but there's a love... heptagon? It's drama/fantasy/romance and awfully touching at times. But again, they're in school.

ef - A Tale of Melodies/Memories is another good show that is very uniquely done. They also don't spend much of the show actually in school to you avoid that aspect. It's also a more mature show.

I don't see Reborn on your list


Reborn is kind of an odd one. It starts really silly, and stays really silly for about 20 episodes

then the action switch gets turned on and the series goes full battle mode.

If the first few episodes don't seem to be your thing, skip ahead and see how you like it from there. It's actually a really top notch action series once it gets going

Maybe you could try Black Butler or Ao No Exorcist?
They're darker themed anime, though still enjoyable and two of my favored shows.
