    Default Need a Recommendation that fits requirements (<-- broad, sort of =X)

    Alright since I'm asking for recommendations, I'd prefer if there were no flaming =X or at least try to limit it as much as possible. Looking for anything besides a shoujo really, that has a decent story plot, comedy is acceptable, some ecchi fan service is also preferred, developed characters, no stupid harems for the love of god, action would also be ok. On a different tangent, zombies/supernatural is also acceptable, but the MAIN requirement is good artwork =X Good plots and characters suffice for bad artwork usually past a certain volume # after 3 if I get into it, but it's really a pain to get an aquired taste to a manga that's poorly drawn.

    Examples of nicely drawn mangas (imo), Oh Great's later volumes of TT, select scenes from Air gear, more realistic art such as Gantz or GTO, clean drawn mangas like MxO or Rosario or UnbalancexUnbalance. Oh, Zero from KMT is also acceptable (that type).

    Fun series to Follow/Read:
    GTO
    MxO
    I's/Ichigo 100%
    Bitter Virgin
    Vampire Knight
    Air Gear
    UnbalancexUnbalance

    Doujin Work
    Kurofuku Monogo

    School of water business =D
    Majin
    Tsukihime

    Ubel Blatt
    School Rumble
    Peridot

    Omamori Himari (GREAT artwork)
    Mai Otome
    Battle Royale
    Ikki Tousen/Battle Club
    Metal Heart/B Reaction
    Black God
    Deep Love Ayu (One of the saddest things I have ever read or hope to read)
    Kurozuka
    Heaven's Prison
    Kekkashi
    Flame of Recca
    Inukami/Inumimi
    Get Backers
    Hayate the Combat Butler
    Suzuka
    Fairy Tale
    Dokuro Chan/Burst Angel
    Gekkoh
    Okama Jiten


    Soo as you can tell I read just about anything that has good artwork/decent plot etc. So any suggestions are perfectly acceptable and welcome! I guess gacha gacha type is .. ehh.. ok too in the end, I just want something to read =(

    -Death Note [really good story. supernatural/psychological]
    -XxXHolic [supernatural, kinda suspense-ish]
    -Tsubasa Chronicles [Tsubasa and XxXHolic's stories are intertwined actually, and the way they are told is really interesting and impressive]
    -HunterxHunter [although this is on hiatus and the artwork kinda got sloppy towards more recent chapters...i just had to mention it because the plot is really good and has good action, too. it will come back in oct. apparently...]

    Yotsuba&! doesn't have ecchi, but fills all your other requirements and is required reading.
    Today is always the most enjoyable day. Just ask Yotsuba.

    mm ok, I haven't read the manga for HxH but I followed the anime up till greed island arc. Does the storyline continue well even after that phase? And yes I have read xxxHolic and love it, it's getting good! But I have never read Tsubasa Res. Chron. except watch part of the anime either, I'll check it out and hopefully the manga is good like FMA as well (FMA anime and manga are terrific imo).

    I also tried Shonan Gumi but the artwork (you're talking the pre GTO right?) was kinda ehhh compared to his later works like Tokko and GTO, the storyline was good but artwork didn't cut it to hold my attention =X

    I'll check out yotsuba later today.

    Anything else that has good artwork and has a semi decent plot with some sort of romance but yet follows more of an action/comedy storyline? I'm thinking something along the lines of Kekkashi type or a strong female/male protagonist that picks up a crush/love interest from the side which builds from following his main plot rather than getting side tracked into the whole romance thing. I just hate those weak worthless pervy guys that somehow, SOMEHOW have this harem after him for some unknown reason like the second part of Gacha Gacha -_______-;;. Ooh I love supernatural horror stuff too.

    Berserk. Has to be thrown in there.


    But, for what you are talking about, the best one I can think of is Akazukin. You gotta go with Akazukin.

    Which one are you talking about exactly?

    If you meant Tokyo Akazukin, I think it would have been much better if told mostly from the wolf's PoV, vore > loli.

    I take issue with that, good sir. We always see the sadistic man in control of the loli, the hero, in manga(ish things), I find it refreshing to be in the POV of a masochistic, willing loli.

    ?_?

    Doesn't matter if the art wasn't all that good. You yourself said the story is good. Manga with good art but no story sucks (Hello Tenjho Tenge and Air Gear!) but manga with mediocre art and good story rocks. (Hello Shonan Jun'ai Gumi)
