Since request is very vague, I'm just dropping by to recommend the only manga I rated 10/10 among thousands, Gunslinger Girl.
Hidden gem among shounen and based on your anime tastes, I'd go with Chrno Crusade, there is also a good anime ada ...

LOL 39 volumes and ongoing!
I started reading it on animewaves like 10 years ago (and dropped it quite soon since nothing happens in the story). It was one of the first scanlations I read. Funny to see it still ongoing. ...

I enjoyed the first game, while the second sucked and I dropped the series with that. To give an example it felt like going from playing Neverwinter nights to playing Assassin's Creed. Better said, it's not like it sucked "per se", it's sim ...

Log Horizon (Novel)
Madan no Ou to Vanadis (Novel) a decent amount of ecchi
No Game No Life (Novel) a great amount of ecchi and "not really" battle, but I'm putting it anyway since it's way better than the rest imho.

Yen did a terrible job for volume 1. There are too many typos, like "Hestia" is often called "Hesita", "Orairo" instead of "Orario", "Hephaistos" is "Hesphaistos" in the last page, etc. I even spo ...

Gunslinger Girl. My favorite manga. If you consider Jean-Jose the main characters, it fits.
Vampire Juujikai I'd not call him merciless, but the theme fits.

Man, how much I waited for another series from him? I honestly couldn't care less about the topic (baseball and student council? uh), but since it's from him I'm totally reading it. My favorite mangaka ever is finally back! ...

You said you like novels... but you're totally missing out the best ones in your lists.

Considering what you read, my #1 rec for you would be a manga in your wish list, Otoyomegatari.
Another good choice would be Vampire Juujikai since you seem to like those kind of love story. If you like it, you should also check other Shirodaira Kyou's wo ...

I've been reading manga and light novels for a for a long time now and it just seemed like shounen was always a bit lighter than seinen which always seems to carry heavier content, if you know what I mean.

What genre are you looking for? If you are looking for a history/seinen, look no more: Ad Astra - Scipio to Hannibal.
