Hello, people! I wanna find some anime that has "badass" characters :D

I like these characters: Alucard (Hellsing), Teresa (Claymore), Rokudo Mukuro, Hibari Kyoya (Reborn!), Zaraki Kenpachi , Kuchiki Byakuya (Bleach), Lelouch Lamperouge (Code Geass), Light Yagami (Death Note), Reiji Fujita (Gallery Fake) - this one is not "overpowered" but he's kinda badass and I like it this way, D (Vampire Hunter D), Edmond Dantes (Gankutsuou) and perhaps the list ends here or I don't rember others =)

I don't really like characters like Train Heartnet (Black Cat) who turned from a "cruel" character in a such a "nice" guy or Vash (Trigun) who's always being silly until someone gets killed, or Himura Kenshin (Rurouni Kenshin) who "never wanna kill someone again", etc.
I like powerful characters that USES that "power" without being silly or a wannabe "peacemaker" or both...
It would be nice if the character that I'm looking for to be the protagonist or at least to appear from time to time.

Is there any anime/manga that can "make" me happy? ^^

If you can get past the fact it is about mahjong, then I suggest Akagi.

I head that One Outs is pretty similar too, but with baseball instead of mahjong, if that's more your kind of thing.

You might enjoy Master Keaton too. The main character can resolve any situation he is in, no matter how sticky it is.

Hmm.. I don't know, is it overpowered or not, but he surely can beat someone far stronger than him..

I just started Golgo 13, what can I say... I love it :p

Done. I loved this wouldn't have been bad if he was a little cocky, he really deserve the #1.

Of course I already saw Hikaru no Go. I enjoyed it but I didn't find it "cool" after Hikaru decided to play instead of letting Sai to win everytime :D
