I would suggest the anime Guin Saga. It is somewhat berserky here and there yet certainly with less bloodshed. The manga itself is pretty old and long, but the anime was made in 2009 and sadly only a portion of the whole story.

You do know it was based off a book series, right?

Thank you all for the wonderful suggestions!! I have been taking and digesting, slowly, the first few episdoes of almost all the recommended series and thus far Magic Knight Rayearth is really putting a smile on my face :).... It is way more immature than I typically am a fan of, but it is stylistically such a throwback to when I started enjoying anime  it has actually proven to be thoroughly and enjoyably nostalgic (even though I have never seen it before...)..... I can't tear myself away... I NEED one episode before work each day like I need a cup of coffee upon cracking my eyelids..... it reminds me of how I had to get up early to catch Dragon Ball before school when I was but a mere youngin'.

Thanks again everyone, and by all means, keep em coming!

After you get through digesting some that list I'd also recommend Scrapped Princess.

Given the shows you've listed, The Twelve Kingdoms should be right up your alley. Also, try Moribito: Guardian of the Spirit.


Moribito is one amazing anime. You, my friend, have wonderful taste.

What is the deal with Lodoss? Is there one or two? Which one is first? I'd like to check it out but I'm not sure where to start.
I avoid online multiplayer because my brain still works.

"The TV series" is likely to be advised.

Reading this makes me miss 90's anime.  That was a good era, too much moe bullshit is big now.

   Record of Lodoss war comes two ways. You have the OVA called just Record of Lodoss War, it's thirteen episodes long and I actually have that one so I can attest it`s greatness. On the other hand you have the TV series Record of Lodoss War: Chronicles of the Heroic Knight which has a different group, sort of ties to the OVA`s and went for twenty-seven episodes. The OVA is really good but the story is scattered so bad that people have actually made lists telling which episodes to watch in what order. I hear the TV series is great but the story is very different, can't really say. I plan to get the series and find out myself soon, I will say the OVA is amazing. Either way you're gonna enjoy it.

Precisely how I feel.... I'm watching like 4 or 5 current series now and none of em really got a hold on me.... Much like games nowadays, the anime I like the best is the good stuff that slipped under my radar in the past...
