http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/AntiHero - the anime section of this entry can help you in your search, me thinks.

Personally I'd recommend Noir and Madlax where the "good guys" (girls actually) are assassins who have few if any regrets about their chosen profession.

Another obvious choice would be Gankutsuou, based on maybe the most famous anti-hero story of them all - "The Count of Monte Cristo".

Going by that site's definition of anti-hero, practically every shounen protagonist applies.

I wouldn't really known as I usually avoid most typical shonen action series like the plague but I don't think their definition is that loose. Isn't the typical shounen protagonist an idealistic moron who would fight only when he is forced to (think Kira from Gundam SEED)?

"Shounen" is a wider genre than just the typical Naruto-type shows.

NHK ni Youkoso!, Beck, Karin, Majin Tantei Nougami Neuro, Dai Mahou Touge, Inyasha, Hajime no Ippo, School Rumble, Slam Dunk, Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei, Kazemakase Tsukikage Ran, Inukami!, Rosario to Vampire, Devil May Cry, Black Jack, Nabari no Ou, Love Hina, Midori no Hibi, Black Cat, Blood+, Slayers, Violinist of Hameln, etc...
That's just a quick list of some shounen series' with "anti-heroes"
There are just way too freaking many. I guess it's not that site's fault--I just think its kind of pointless to point them out as something different.

Of course, I just thought you meant what many people mean when they say shonen, which is Naruto and the likes, because the actual shonen category does not have a typical main character due to it encompassing quite a few genres.

I really wouldn't call anyone from Love Hina an anti-hero, though. I guess you meant that whoever wrote the Anti-Hero entry considered ineffectual or pathetic characters as anti-heroes which I think is very wrong. So yes, you have a point.

generally its someone on the side of good ( or think there acting on the side of good), however...there methods are morally grey to say the least...pretty much the opposite of your standard hero - well if you want a proper explanation just google the words

alucard is deffo anti-hero though since you asked that.

By the way he's trying to put it, an anti-hero in his case would be a good guy that should be a bad guy.
Gantz....sorta...cause the hero isn't exactly a hero nor is he for the right reasons.

If you want people to use the search function, I think it's only fair if you start and end your sentences with a capital letter and a full stop respectively.

He is definitely a baddass, but he is not an anti-hero.

Guts and Dark Schneider are anti-heroes because they do morally amibigous to evil things. Vash does not.
