I am looking for Seinen, but don't want something with too much gore. It am pretty easily disgusted.

Looking for one with:
Some Fighting [Not the typical Shounen scenerio, please]
Not much gore [I don't feel well when I see a guy's head getting cut off nor can I stand when the manga shows the inside...]
Nothing to scary/wierd/freaky. [Not freaky alien/buggy things]
Good or Decent art/plot

I have read/is reading:
CAT (Confidential Assassin Troop)
Mahoutsukai to Teishi no Futekisetsu na Kankei (Loose Relation between Wizard and Apprentice)
Seiken no Katanakaji (The Sacred Blacksmith)
Tenjou Tenge
The Ravages of Time
Wolf Guy - Ookami no Monshou
Zetman


It would be much appreciated for a suggestion. Please explain how much gore it has and any other warnings! Thanks.

so you're looking for seinen that are geared more toward action?
not sienen that are family oriented?
or sienen that are more on the romance side?

Vagabond and Vinland Saga would be good places to start.

KSKM and Holyland are sports seinen with cuts and bruises but not much else, Holyland is also a bit psychological
Monster is a manga with some shooting scenes but its more drama/mystery oriented
Threads of Time is a manga about a boy going back in time to kill someone, cuts and bruises again
Shin Angyo Onshi is a very cool manga, it does have some dismemberment but I don't remember particularly graphic scenes (except for a scene that is an extreme spoiler)
Otogi Matsuri's plot is about a boy preventing himself from dying, it does have a few shonen elements and the gore level is virtually non-existant (from my memory)
Cloth Road is a manga about battle clothing...it makes more sense in context, no gore
Bokurano is a seinen with giant fighting robots and kids protecting their home, it may be a little strange for your taste, giant robots=virtually no blood or guts being spilled
King of Thorns is a survival/action seinen, it's set in a post-apocalyptic world and does have a few monsters, though it's not that weird.

King of Bandit Jing - Practically no gore, and there's quite a bit of fighting.
Innocent W - It's a little on the supernatural side, but I'm pretty sure you'll be okay with it.
Pluto - The killers and those who are being killed are (mostly) robots, so no gore here.
Historie
Drug-On - Maybe? It does have a few gore-ish bits, but it's not excessive at all. You'll be able to figure out whether you like it or not after reading the first few chapters.
Vinland Saga - Doubtful, but you should give it a shot.
Cesare - It focuses more on relationships than on the actual killing part, so it'll probably fit you needs.
Monster - I wouldn't categorize this as action, but it's a very intriguing story with a great plot.
Bokurano
Tsukumo Nemuru Shizume - Haven't read it, and can't be certain, so it's a 'maybe'.
Hinata no Ookami - Shinsengumi Kidan - This isn't as cliched as it sounds, so try it out.

Sorry, I can't really think of anything else...maybe Blood Alone? It's a vampire manga, with some action every couple of chapters.

Also, I would like to say, if you are easily disgusted, you may want to drop Wolf Guy. It get's pretty bad.

Just Seinen with some fighting, it doesn't have to revolve around that though. biggrin
Thanks lphegenia, for the suggestion.

The Rome/Greek thing doesn't really appeal to me.
Thanks Lord Lucifiel, for the suggestion.

Wolf Guy has been okay, but I didn't feel very well when it started showing gorey scenes during the frag grenade/gun thing.
Despite "Blood Alone" being a Shounen, I'll still check it out.
Thanks Orpheus17 for the suggestion.

Seems interesting, will try.

Thanks for the huge list of recommendations. Thanks for putting warnings! bigrazz
Some of these seem to be around what I'd like, but I'll have to find some time to check them all out.
biggrin

Woah, thanks for the list. I'll check them out. Thanks for the description.
Seems a lot of these have action, so I am sure some will interest me. biggrin
Thanks Calstine.


I got more suggestions than I expected. Thanks to all that replied and gave recommendations, really appreciate it. It'll take me a while to go through this list. smile wink grin

All I had in mind are already suggested but - Rebirth ( there is little gore at the beginning) is good, Anuki too.
