Modern Fighter anime? (aka bruce lee)?

I'm an old rut in anime.
Most of my knowledge is about per-millennial anime.
I want to know what modern day anime is a good superhuman fighter anime!
(kinda like 'beat the crap out of everyone'-anime.

To give a comparison, the ones I like:
- Naruto
- Bleach
- Hokuto No Ken (aka Fist of the North Star) series
- Toriko
- Dragonball series (Z/GT/etc...)
- YuYu Hakusho
- Berserk
- Bastard
- Jojo's bizarre adventure
- Street Fighter 2V
- Hunter X Hunter
- Grappler Baki
- Hajime no ippo

Any other suggestions?

There are lots of those:
Fairy Tail
One Piece
Ao no Exorcist
Soul Eater
D.Gray Man
Deadman Wonderland
Mirai Nikki

Fate/Stay Night and its prequel Fate/Zero which is better

In the 'manly man' action department I suggest without the slightest hesitance both seasons of Sengoku Basara and the movie Sengoku Basara: The last Party. "Beat the crap out of everyone" sounds like an adequate description for this series. It is also ridiculously entertaining with its hilarious interpretation of well known historical personalities (it offers unrivaled and unforgettable "discussions" between Sanada Yukimura and Takeda Shingen - a must watch). Terrific animation, good BGM and superb voice acting. Rawr!

You might also enjoy Tiger & Bunny which is a story offering a very interesting twist of the classic Superhero genre. Not quite as hyperactive as the above mentioned Sengoku Basara but a very good series that gets the mix of action, character development as well as humor and seriousness right. Visuals are top-notch.

You might like Basilisk: Two ninja clans fight to the death for a scroll, because their lords say so.

Basilisk almost looks like 'Ninja Scroll'?
Very good, I'll try that one!

I tried Sengoku Basara, but wasn't really drawn to it. Nice special effects, but lousy storytelling. A big showoff in the beginning, but very slow story pace. I tried giving it a second chance, but gave up on that too, after a good 5-10 eps...

I think I'll also try one piece. I've seen one movie (or OVA), and one EP, but it did not catch my attention. Perhaps (like someone said), I may have watched the bad eps.

Several good ones mentioned.

What about Katanagatari (a modern one) and Ranma 1/2 (an old classic)?

Cross Game - A Story of Love, Life, Death - and Baseball. What more could you want?
