Is there any manga or anime that's borderline josei seinen or is that just completely strange?

Bitter Virgin. The plot is completely seinen, but the art looks Shoujo.

Try the work of Kei Kusunoki, especially Bitter Virgin. Formally classified as seinen (published in a seinen magazine for one thing) but regularly described by fans as shoujo. And it's brilliant.

Pet Shop of Horrors Sometime you don't know if you are reading shoujo, josei, seinen or shounen, seriously, it's kind of weird.

Solanin is seinen but is very character focused-and it's got fabulous art

Nodame Cantabile is josei, but pretty low key-relationship/character oriented but not so soapy and has a sense of humor
(edit-I know you're already reading it, leaving the rec in case anyone else wants something similar.)

Hourou Musuko is very sweet gender-bender seinen that focuses on kids, but explores the themes well, keeps out the fanservice, and has plenty of cross appeal

Mel Kano is a collection of seinen oneshots that could probably be josei if the pov was switched

Kobato is one of my new faves- it's adorable, it's seinen but could be shoujo/josei/etc-it's CLAMP

Victorian Romance Emma is a seinen but it's veeeery romantic <3 (think Jane Eyre, but the female protagonist here is a maid) and has pretty art, amazingly detailed (especially in volumes 2+).
