Question looking for fighting/martial arts.....

Im looking for anime or manga like Holyland with:
-Realistic approach to martial arts/fighting.( No superpowers,ki,etc)
-Dark atmosphere. (No comedy or lighthearted stuff)
-Interesting characters and good development.

Until Death Do Us Part mostly fits the bill, it includes kenjutsu and CQC, it's mostly dark with interesting characters, but there's a precog in the team and a blind samurai with a nano-tech sword. It just so happens to be this guy vvvvv

Ashita No Joe, it's about boxing. There is a sad atmosphere sometimes, it's a really great show but a bit old.

You have Hajime No Ippo (boxing) but it's not really "dark".

You can try also "Tough", it's about Free Fight.
