what is the name of the genre of shows like one piece and Naruto? the shows that are about the main character kicking ass with superpowers and shit, but still losing every once in a while. i don't think it is shonen, because i think that means boy or something. also, are there any shows like that that take place in a city? i wanna see people getting thrown through buildings and shit.

Shounen does mean boy, and while it's not a genre but a demographic, that's generally what people tag shows like Naruto, Bleach and One Piece with. Shounen is now synonymous with fighting, action, power ups, the power of friendship, a foolhardy protagonist that is a big dreamer etc.

already seen it. pretty cool, but didn't focus on the cooler characters and focused on the more boring ones.

Have you watched Baccano! ? There's a scene where a guy is covered in blood. Oh wait, not a scene, multiple scenes

Okay, so, there are two...well three main factions. There is the independent one (for most of the start anyway) that is the Rai faction. Another one is the Lukedonia faction who used to be led by a person in the independent faction. And last is the Union faction who is the main antagonist faction.
"For 820 years he had slumbered with no knowledge of mankind's advancement and scientific progress. The land which he once knew has become an unfamiliar place with new technology, attitudes, and lifestyles. Upon awakening, Cadis Etrama Di Raizel (aka Rai), seeks to familiarize himself with this era. He locates a loyal servant of his, Frankenstein, who is currently the principal of a South Korean High School. Rai decides that this school is the perfect place to help him learn about the modern world, enrolls, and begins associating a group of good-natured students in order to 'blend in'. But this new world is no safer than the old; and the dignified, bewildered, technologically inept Rai finds himself embroiled in adventures both ridiculous and dangerous."

It's like God just sent me my worst nightmare in a box labeled,"Fuck you"

Shounen ain't a genre, it's a demographic. That probably could be easily deduced by my cat if she already knew that it meant young boy.
