You are looking for GunXSword. Yes, there are some guns, but all fights have melee sword fighting since the main character is a badass sword wielder.

Plus you get to meet lots of weird, hilarious and interesting guys. And all the girls you meet are hot.

Its a mecha anime. Is the main character powerful? Yes of course, especially when you're reminded that the main character's mech is the most powerful every episode.

Doesn't look bad, but I really can't stand mech anime : / sorry.

Need a rich story, Powerful Main character, and sword fighting.

Rich story is something you can immerse yourself in, you laugh and are happy for the characters when they're happy. And your damn close to tears when bad things happen. (kinda like the thing with euphie in code geass.. damn that was sad)

Powerful Main Character. Not stupid, powerful, Smart, Intelligent. Always has the upper hand, even if the villan doesn't know it yet.

And sword fighting, knife fighting. Something that looks flashy, not nessasarily old school samurai stuff.. And not limited to guns. fraid DBZ style fighting is all that really thrills me, or Bleach fights, naruto.. Stuff like that, as childish as it is compared to mature samurai battles.. heh. I guess there a little kid somewhere in me firing off hadukens

Guess I'll keep looking

You want tears? One Piece, its the one thing I cried most for.

One Piece is the best long running manga ever.

It has everything in your post above, Luffy doesn't use swords, but Zoro does. Though Luffy is primarily stupid, but he is a combat genius and he knows exactly what he has to do.

One piece is a good show, and I may go and watch it. Yet it is somewhat kiddish, reminds me of pokemon and whatnot lol. But it is entertaining nonetheless. Just not quite the maturity level I'm looking for. I got uber hooked on Deathnote. Thats kinda a solid anime for what I'm looking for, with fighting.

Meh, maybe I'm too picky.

Since when did Death Note have fighting? Lol. Unless you mean fighting with their MINDS.

Berserk and Basilisk might fit the bill, though I haven't seen them myself. But lots of people keep recommending them to me.

If you haven't seen it, you might also enjoy Black Lagoon. Although it's mostly gunfighting (though you do run into a samurai that can cut a bullet in half mid-air 0_0), it's still all epic. Lots of badasses running around in a world of crime and debauchery, etc. A great anime that's set for a higher maturity age group (that is, adult). I really liked it, and you probably will, too, if you havent seen it yet.

Actually was refering to the maturity level with death note, but the mind game fights were indeed pretty epic

As for black lagoon, I watched a few episodes.. The chick annoys me really bad, and.. well its gun fighting. And its not flashy gun fighting. Its just gun fighting. lol

Berzerk as I said before took a while for me to watch, but I got around to it. Its pretty good. Havn't tried the other you listed, I'll look into it.

Another one I forgot about over the years... Samurai Deeper Kyo. Lots of sword fighting with special attacks (similar to Bleach). The main character is the most feared sword fighter in Japanese history and blurs the line between good guy and bad guy.

Basilisk is a good story and have good fights !!
Bakumatsu Kikansetsu with the samurais but if you don't like to listen the japan's past then its not good . Most part here , they talks .
Tokyo Majin Gakuen Kenpuchou is good too .
Maybe Koutetsu Sangokushi? I dropped after episode 12 , but maybe for you it'll be good .

Manga is a lot better IMO. Much more clearer than the OVA.

lol. The irony.

"much more clear"

Not being a nazi. Just thought it was funny to use bad grammar in a sentence that talks about something being clear.

Is the manga longer than the OVA?

Not sure about rich story, but powerful main character + flashy sword fighting = Devil May Cry adaptation. Pretty flashy

Yeah. Spans 11 Volumes in the original and 8 in the 2nd edition ones.

It's only being released in Singapore by Chuang Yi in English.

You can try Black Cat. The main character is basically unbeatable throughout the anime. Though he seems kinda nerfed down from the manga. He uses a gun, but he also uses it to whack people and stuff. And it's not gunfights, everyone in the anime has a different weapon.

Chrome Shelled Regios, Layfon is total badass, except he's the decent type.
And there're also other action characters in the series, including females.
