You can probably check out the slice of life genre; shows that fall in this category are generally light-hearted and explosion free.

A few examples include:

Azumanga Daioh
Minami ke
Aria
Sketchbook full colors

The first two emphasize comedy, but in my opinion are two of the funnier shows in this genre. The latter are the more relaxing and atmospheric style slice of life that are all about the beauty in even the little things in life.

Well Cross Game doesn't have screams or explosions and is quite good, I think a lot of people would like it too.

If you want more traditional action but just not as over the top as Dragonball, you might try something like Crest of the Stars, Fullmetal Alchemist, Soul Eater, Read Or Die, or Full Metal Panic
