Real good animes...

I am having trouble searching for a decent anime, allmost all animes now are so "girlish", which suck really bad, the only anime i watch recently are naruto, mazinger Z and FMA:B, i want something epic like kaiji, monster, Gantz, Shigurui,Karas

main charcter has to be MALE and not a 7 year old look like, the anime has to have interseting storyline...

If you could point out which ones you find to be "girlish", that'll help us narrow down some recommendations for you.

Moe-ish, romance genre, and harem most probably.

Anyways, Watch Black Lagoon then try calling Revy "girly".

Something without a Shoujo theme, you're asking for? Well, I understand where you're coming from, so I'll give a couple of suggestions that should fit right in. Your best bet would be stuff similar with Naruto and FMA, for example, Shounen type anime (more action packed animation). But if you insist on anime like Monster and Grantz, then I won't chase it any farther.

Recommending: Berserk, Tokko, Outlaw Star and Souten no Ken.

Suggestions: Bleach, Needless, Baki the Grappler, Samurai Champloo and Casshern Sins.

I've got more ideas if you don't agree with my choices.

Well... I'm not sure what old anime you've seen, and I can't think of any recent "action" anime that doesn't also have a "girlish" side to it.

Chrome Shelled Regios has a lot of action, but I think it also has a romance and angst filled side to it. Might be too girly, depending on how much you think giants swords, and chopping up monsters, and being a badass with an dark past outweighs the girls trying to snag the hero into a romance.

Most of the good actiony guy stuff is older. Have you seen Full Metal Panic? Especially funny if you've seen a lot of American war movies.

Of course, that's if by "not girly" you mean action filled guy stuff. On the other hand, maybe some other serious slice of life anime that has normal guys worrying about normal guy stuff is okay. If that's the case I would suggest Cross Game (don't be decieved by the first episode, you need to watch at least 3 episodes before getting an idea of how non-girly it is). While not an action anime like FMA, it does delve into the emotional side of being a guy, without... you know, making the guy all girly.

Sort of like FMA to be honest. I mean Ed and Al had to deal with some pretty heavy emotional stuff- but they deal with it the way guys actually deal with that kind of stuff. Instead of the way girls think guys should deal with emotional stuff. So it was emotional and all that, but without being girly.

Cross Game is sort of the same, but with baseball instead of alchemy.

How about Kara no Kyoukai. It's a series of seven movies that is nothing but action with some drama involved.

Try Texhnolyze, having the same director as Shigurui, it has similar aesthetic sensibilities as well as the penchant for slow-burners and understated emotional scenes.
