Hello! I'm looking for some good adventure manga. It can be about anything, I just want a male lead (yes, male please) that goes into an adventure for whatever reason: revenge, saving the world, has to find someone, etc. I like supernatural elements, but it's not a must. I prefer seinen or shounen. I don't mind gore.

So far I've read and enjoyed Mugen no Juunin, Berserk and Vinland Saga. This all have a historical setting (a fictional one in Berserk, but still it's kind of medieval), but I don't mind reading something set in our own time or even the future.

Just for the record, I already tried using the search engine but I want to know what do the people here have read and liked enough to recommend it.

Thanks in advance!

Spice & Wolf (Novel) or the manga, but novel is better, he is a trader
A Fairytale for the Demon Lord was good but a bit confusing
Double Arts axed sad
Kaitai Shinsho Zero though I think they messed up the ending
Magico (IWAMOTO Naoki) cute
Rave good enough if you are ok with the art
Superior & Superior Cross obviously
Tsubasa Reservoir Chronicle

in need of romance?
uncommon, sad, sweet

Saving the world: Maoyuu Maou Yuusha - "Kono Watashi no Mono Tonare, Yuusha yo" "Kotowaru!"

Maybe... but it's the only decent adventure manga I'm reading that has not already been stated.

Most of these consist of saving the world/country or bringing balance to the world:

Kazan - When I think of adventure as a primary, I always think of this manga the most.
D.Gray-Man - For the supernatural.
Aventura - It stopped being published in English, but if you know some Japanese, you may be in luck...
Full Metal Alchemist

Finding the truth:

Dealings with the previous life:
Kagerou Nostalgia

Not done (in an official sense), but still awesome:
: Rise R to the Second Power

Hayao MIYAZAKI's Shuna no Tabi and Kaze no Tani no Nausicaä, both are good especially Nausica manga,but it has female lead.
Trigun is a good one.
Lodoss series there's few of them, all are good mostly.
Biomega give it a try.
If you don't mind slow-ish/episodic one, then Mushishi
