Question Please help me find good "fighting" themed anime/manga

Hello Folks,
I was hoping you could suggest some manga and/or anime for me?

I like "fighting" types such as Samurai X/Rouruoni Kenshin, Claymore, Kenichi, and things like that... not interested in Naruto at all, I prefer things that are less aimed at children. (Because I am OLD, lol!)

Also I HATE watching anime in English with very few excetions, such as Street Fighter the Animated Movie and Vampire Hunter D... Oh and yes, Outlaw Star was acceptable.

Along with the "fighting" themes I do like a good story, and even enjoy things like "Bamboo Blade" and "Shion no O" between heavier combat stories.

Thanks in advance!!

The manga Vagabond is a shoe in for what you're looking for. It is a fictional telling of the life of Musashi Miyamoto (he doesn't go by that name in the story itself, though I forget what the name he goes by is) as he seeks out the most notable swordsmen in Japan in his quest to become the strongest (or, more accurately, his quest to put some style behind his overwhelming power <_<). The art style takes some getting used to, but provided you don't discard it for that the manga is pretty good.

- One Piece the manga, not the anime.
- The Law of Ueki, the anime or the manga (Use Shinsen-subs, the other subs are terrible).
- The Law of Ueki Plus, the manga.
- Konjiki no Gash Bell the manga.

Shura no toki - a fighting technique handed down for generations which does not use weapons
Shigurui - very violent samurai action
Blade of the immortal - samurai action
Sword of the stranger - a movie, samurai again
Basilisk - ninja for grown ups.
Tsukikage ran - female samurai and her companion on their travels
Tenjou Tenge - pretty cool fighting in high school ambience, not childish
Fate/stay night - some of the best sword fights IMO

of all those I only know the anime
