I know my topic title is a bit vague but I can not really narrow it down ^^ though I tried to mention the main part.

As for now I have read 2 Novels:

Moonlight Sculptor - Volume 24

Mahouka Koukou no Rettousei - completed

Lately I am following the following Mangas:



Ruler of the Land

[u]As a blind man can see I prefer novels without black/white thinking and where also the hero has some flaws ^^.[/u]

I am thankful for any help biggrin .

Hmm, as you yourself admitted, that is a bit vague. So I'm just going to recommend you the good novels I'm reading that have something to do with fighting wink

Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu (Novel) fantasy-ish
Kill No More (Novel)
Feng Yu Jiu Tian (Novel) since you didn't place any restrictions on genre, I'm recommending this too, even though it's yaoi. But don't worry too much, the plot is amazing if you enjoy strategy and the (relatively few) BL parts can be skimmed through
Gu Fang Bu Zi Shang (Novel) romance but both leads are clever. Also a strategy story

all of them have manga adaptations, as does Rain <- this is for the manga, 'cause the novel's hardly ever updated

Not sure if you also want manga, if you do I'll add some

I would be really happy when you have some good Mangas for me. In the last 3 weeks I have found none. That´s why I have started reading novels in earnest.

And thx for great help until now smile.

I don't read a whole lot of fighting genre, but Girls of the Wild's is good. But it's a Korean webtoon, so I don't know how you feel about that... Not the conventional manga, but it's a good kind of different. Highly recommend XD

You can also try Hakaiou Noritaka!. It's a manga about kickboxing - haven't tried it myself, but from a couple of glimpses it's REALLY funny.

1/2 Prince (Novel) - a lot of fighting.

Eclipse Hunter (Novel) - a lot of fighting, with more focus on character depth.

The Legend of Sun Knight (Novel) - a low to average amount of fighting, though I think it picks up as the plot gets thicker? Someone could correct me on that; I haven't read that far.

Ark (Novel) - very similar to Moonlight Sculptor.

Okay then, fighting manga with flawed heroes and grey morality.

Übel Blatt - one of my favourite antiheroes. He's also got a badass sword
A Fairytale for the Demon Lord - perhaps, I've only read six chapters yet
Ajin - it's basically about zombies. Has the grey morality thing down. There's also some fighting (for one's life)
Aletheia - that mc... I can't tell you why he's interesting without spoiling you a bit, but since it's still got just a few chapters out, it's pretty quick to read. The story''s moving kind of slowly though
Be Heun - a retired badass war hero, if I remember correctly. not 100% sure if this is what you seek
Black Haze - okay, this is just Good (attention to the italics and capital letter) even though it's not exactly what you've asked, it's got some fighting and the mc is no saint. he's also very pragmatic
Chang Ge Xing - sorry I keep giving you strategy recs, but this is just so surprisingly good
Godly Bells - mc seems kind of wimpy at first but turns out to be very interesting
Gun x Clover high-ranked in disguise. has dark past, wants revenge, etc etc
In Full Bloom (YON Jae-Won) One ruler, one schemer, and... one assassin. Need. I. Say. More!?
Itsuwaribito Utsuho he's a liar with heart of gold. Also pretty crafty
Jormungand and probably Black Lagoon but I prefer Jonah to Rock
Waltz The mc's an assassin and pretty flawed
Vinland Saga Goddammit read it NOW it's got BLOOD, it's got REVENGE, it's got a FLAWED MC, it's got EVERYTHING
Yongbyeong Maluhan probably
Ares set during wartime if I'm not wrong, so lots of grey morality

maybe (probably) not all of them are what you're looking for, but most of them are really good

edit: also seconding 1/2 prince, eclipse hunter, sun knight and girls of the wild's also has a lot of fighting

The Legend of Sun Knight (Novel) is one of the best novels ever written but it doesn't have that much action. The lead's personality is amazing! He is devil who is a saint!!

Noblesse Cool fights. Protagonist is smart, cool & silent. Not your usual shonen... The starting is slow so bear with it till Ch.70 or so..
Akame ga Kiru!
Feng Shen Ji It's popular in action/fantasy genre. Not a fan of it but it has large fanbase.
