Well, Code Geass and Death Note are kind of the "standard" answers - both of which have vigilante main characters who are also anti-heroes

A Certain Scientific Railgun kind of has vigilante characters. There is a "police force" that is sort of ineffective in certain scenarios, forcing the characters to act on their own a lot of the time, but I wouldn't call that a major point of the show.

Romeo x Juliet also has vigilante characters (with Juliet herself almost serving as a Robin Hood / Zorro type figure called "The Red Whirlwind"). But, again, with the show itself being based off of Romeo and Juliet, that isn't exactly the focus of the story (but it is still a significant detail within it).

Finally, there's Hell Girl which I think might technically fit both categories, but also... kind of not? The main characters run a service that allows someone to send another person to hell immediately at the cost of going to hell themselves when they die. The service itself is neutral, but is often used to deal with unsavory people who just can't be touched normally. The main character, Ai, isn't a traditional hero with traditional morality, but she's fairly neutral and not the stereotypical Byronic anti-hero.

That's all I can think of off-hand. I'm not sure how well any of these will fit what you're looking for though.

Eureka Seven: Boy joins up with a group do-gooder outlaws opposing an oppressive government, in order to find his father (and hang out with a cute girl).

Samurai Champloo: Girl hires two anti-hero types to help her track someone down.

it is a mystery series. The main female character is pretty much a detective.

yes. she is obsessed with bones but that doesn't make her a vigilante

i know people in real like who don't like dealing with people . they prefer to work in places with few people that's all (lab tech, researchers,etc) --

vig·i·lan·te (vĭj′ə-lăn′tē)
n.
A person who is not a member of law enforcement but who pursues and punishes persons suspected of lawbreaking.



it will depend on which definition you are going by.. Batman is a vigilante as well
