A manga where main character is a hero, or good willed good natured guy but something happens that makes him ruthless. Here are a few examples;
Cavalier of the Abyss
Übel Blatt (best example)
Mahou Tsukai Kurohime
*gah I can't think of anymore I swore I thought of lots when I was laying in bed*

I would appreciate any help! Shounen, Seinen, Jose, Shoujo any genre
Even if you don't think it fits exactly, recommend it regardless I will take a look! Appreciate it~
I was wondering if anyone knew of a story of main that turns into a villain not anti hero, a villain
(besides death note)

*Mangas I've read that have been recommended*
The Breaker
Legend of Maian
Code Geass
Mirai Nikki
Fire Candy
Kimi no Knife

Tsukihime is nothing like Kurohime.

Yo man! You should have put more mangas that you know of I suppose, lazy man, or perhaps, lazy noman no

Kami no kodomo - He becomes evil because he's born and didn't want to be born. It's totally justified no anyone would react like him. It's hillarious~

First chapter of Zenryou naru Itan no Machi with the father who has grown tired of his family's constant bullshit no anyone would react like him. It's hillarious~
Just read it now. It's just a few pages long.

I'd say Code Geass too, but you don't seem to be into that. Possibly one of the least disappointing endings I've witnessed no Anyone would react like him. It's hillarious~

Hahahaha Naruto, and you can just skip everything that doesn't revolve the Uchiha clan. It's not hillarious. I don't think anyone would react like him... Not at all.. and it's not even funny~ no

Vinland Saga - It'sss.. his father dies by the hands of vikings, so he has no choice but to join the vikings that killed him just to have his revenge. He becomes quite the bitch actually - if you like bitches - this is it. But then, he realizes that and regrets his cruelty. It's hillarious and interesting. Anyone would react like him~ no

It doesn't really fit but these are in some way "evil", but not like you want them too I suppose:
Liar game - he kind of becomes evil because of his mother being conned, though he really isn't evil, yet. Still think he's hiding something though. Interesting read~ no
One Outs might be alright if you're into that. Don't know if I'd call him evil, but he's quite full of himself in a way that can be perceived as evil. Interesting read~ no
Kiseijuu - maybe.. people get Parasited, (yes, it's a verb when capitalized), and so their parasites have the need to Parasite on humans. The main character just grows cold-hearted, he's not evil I suppose. Interesting read~ no
A Fairytale for the Demon Lord - perhaps~
Shingeki no kyojin - could be.. he becomes a giant which pretty much is the threat of that world~
Dorohedoro - maybe~
Himizu - absolutely definetely maybe. But it's not that good~

EDIT: just search for revenge, or other typical stuff that would make someone evil. Not sure how these search engines here work, but I like this site so that's why I use this.

Narutaru - you gotta read till the end
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
she kill EVERYONE

Ares - one of the friend become the big antagonist. i dont think he's good natured from the start, but you kinda like him so...

Eden: It's an Endless World! - he's just a kid but then he become
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
a hitman then a drug addict

Kimi no Knife - just a regular school teacher become a hitman.

7 Seeds - okay , this is a big stretch, but i think the guys from summer a is kinda like this.

Battle Royale - the 'hero' is still a big pussy till the end, but i dont consider him as the main character and i consider everyone is the hero of their own story. well, if everyone is out for themselves, normal kids can become crazy.

Fire Candy - this is a very big stretch, i think the protagonist is crazy from the start, but you might want to see his descent to the abyss.

Koroshiya 1 - this is also not really what you want. but i think ichi is basically a mentally challenge person, one cannot really blame him for doing what he did.

Thanks for all the recommendations I will look at them when I have time. I am at the brink of collapsing, due to family issues ^_^ thanks again I have updated the mangas recommended that I have read if you recommended one that I read, please don't feel it wasn't taken into account I appreciate you reminding me of it. So that I can give more examples
