    Looking for a Anime that involves...

    A very in-depth main char, Pref a male who has a bad internal conflict within himself to save his friends. Kinda like Naruto I would say but maby darker and someone who actually fights more.

    Basically for a plot summary something along the lines of... A man's powers for greatness awakens when his friends/family is in great danger, and he fights to become even more powerful to defend his loved ones from harm. His internal conflict would be something like fear that he will not be strong enough to protect them. Setting wise I think around the lines of Naruto, I'm aiming more for super-powers* per say than a man with a gun or so on.

    So.... Any Ideal

    Yu Yu Hakucho is pretty close to what you are looking for. Kid dies but gets brought back as a Spirit Detective. He gains new abilities and must fight off demons and other things who threaten the human world. All the while, he tries to maintain a regular student life and make sure the two lives he is leading do not mix.

    Darker Than Black involves a main character with powers, but you do now know what he is fighting for until close to the end of the first season. Most of the series involves the mystery behind why people like the main character got powers and what the main character is after. It is very good though.

    You pretty much summarrized Darker than Black. Bleach may be fun, but there's nothing rly dark about the main character. his hollowform doesn't count because he takes control of it too easily. Neon Genesis Evangelion is heavy on the internal conflict if you don't mind scratching your head and cussing at your TV in utter confusion half the time.

    thanks to zyta for the sick sig and avy!

    There is also Blood+ that is dead on what you are talking about except the main character is female. Other then that, it has all the pieces. Fighting to protect her family, trouble understanding her powers, fears she will not be strong enough and that she is losing herself to the battle and so on. It is very dark. It should fit the bill quite well if you do not mind a female lead. It is one of my favorite action/drama series ever.
