I am sort of new to Anime, in the sense that the only anime i ever watched was Dragonball, Dragonball Z, and... GT (Sorry!). So i grew up with DBZ. Now at the righteous year of 25, i am finding i sort of enjoy watching a little anime - and i never used to like anime - that is more action orientated.

To put an example down: I watch on both Funimation AND Crunchyroll

Dubbed or Subbed:

I just finished Naruto (Dubbed), and up-to-date Shippuden (Subbed) -- This was so amazing this series. I wish i would've watched this as a kid along-side DBZ. This takes my #1 spot which was held by DBZ for so long. The action, the slight comedy, the sadness, the drama, it all affected me in some way or form.

Fairy Tail (Dubbed) (Currently EP 124) - This show is a mix of DBZ and Naruto for me - while not true, it works for me! - and i love it! Like Naruto, i feel attached to the characters, and the story is never dull (Except for Daphne... ugh).

FMA: Brotherhood (Dubbed) - Just started watching this series, after barely getting through 12 EP's of the 2003 series, and now im addicted. It's a little more mature than most it seems with all the blood and blatant killing. Love it!

One Piece (Dubbed)(EP 23) - While One Piece is pretty good, and enjoyably funny at times, i still can't seem to get past the kiddish nature of it. I'm hoping it gets more "violent" i uess for lack of a better term. I just like the premise on friendship so far in it, via Zoro.

Rokka: The Brave of the Six Flowers (Subbed) -- This is a great anime, which is only on Crunchyroll, and i absolutely love it! There is mystery, action, confusion, and really good action sequences.

God Eater (Subbed) - Though still new to the series, on Episode 4 i believe (It's behind on the Simulcast), i am really starting to dig its more action-story and cell shader (i think?) effect.

Ushia and Tora (Subbed) - This is a really unique show (to me anyways) and it involves a Human... who wields a giant Lance, and defeats Youkai (Demons) with help of a Demon who was trapped for 300years. Lots of action, a bit of swearing, and violent-violent-violent scenes!

<hr>-

Above is not to show you what i know about the series, but sort of show you where my definition of Action/Adventure lies within' the anime-verse. I'm not big on these over-sexuality female-only shows (Though you could argue Rokka does this, but does it well imo). Some of them are PG-13 shows, but deal with a variety of moral and death choices, which is awesome (Looking at you Naruto) and then theres some that are M-14 (Looking at you FMA and Rokka).

Are there any series you can recommend me? On both Funimation and Crunchyroll? Thank you for taking the time to read this pointless thread! Just looking for some new shows to watch

I second Akame Ga Kill, it's awesome. Also, if you want to try something a bit darker and violent, you could try Parasyte and Tokyo Ghoul.

Trigun. Gun fighting in a Steam-punk world; starts off pretty comedic, but gets heavier as it goes along.

Samurai Champloo: Samurai sword-fighting with a hip-hop sensibility. Fight scenes are incredible; plot is hit-or-miss.

Attack on Titan: Interesting post-apocalyptic fantasy world, and some clever combat. Dialogue is a bit overly dramatic, but if that doesn't bother you, chances are you'll like the show.

Eureka Seven: Starts off mostly a show about giant flying robots blowing each other up. Then it gets smart and dramatic... and eventually it gets a little too philosophical for it's own good. But there is a lot to love about it, and it's never boring.

Did you actually know some of the more popular ecchi based fan service anime/manga are actually written by women?

As for recommendations, Parasyte is a decent action/horror based anime.

I didn't know that but I saw an interview with this author and she doesn't read any Manga or watch any anime which I thought was kinda interesting. In my mind I thought all ecchi was written by 21-29 year old men tbh

Stupid Errors!

Yeah it boggles the mind, some of the writers actually use a male pen name.

Heres a few that are written by females.

I think you might like Black Lagoon. Action-packed and it's definitely for mature audience. Genre: Action, Seinen

Why the male pen name to get foot in the door in male dominated field or to hide due to feeling guilty?

I dont know how many of em go by a male pen name, maybe to not be thought of as a lesbian or some such.

I honestly dont know much about the Manga industry, I didn't really get into manga until a few years ago, not knowing that it was translated into English.
