    Default Looking for something to read

    My favorites on the site are Berserk, Gantz, and Zombie Hunter. And while I keep trying to find something else that I would enjoy, nothing seems to be nearly as good as these.

    I love games of survival, but for some reason don't want to read Battle Royale. I own the movie and the book and don't see the manga surpassing those. I really like normal people being thrown into situations where they have to fend for their lives against others and/or monsters and the like. Anything with zombies, vampires, werewolves are a plus, as well as gore and taboo bashing material.

    I really don't like stuff like Naruto, One Piece, Bleach. I really can't stand a lot of that cutesy stuff.

    Thanks to anyone/everyone that suggest something.

    Hmm...

    Claymore (half-monsters fighting full monsters)
    7 Seeds (normal teenagers wake up after cryogen to a post-apocalyptic Earth which has gone wild and feral and must try to rebuild civilization)
    Fist of the North Star (think of it as the granddaddy of Berserk)

    -Dizzy-
    Manga Genre Focus: Romance, Comedy, Slice-of-life. Primarily shounen, then seinen and shoujo.

    7 Seeds would be my first recommendation, followed by King of Thorns.

    Mx0, possibly. High School of the Dead, maybe?

    Claymore
    Tokko

    -the following have no zombies or monsters in the classic meaning but you should take a look (blood, gore and nudity guaranted in most of them)

    Basilisk
    Eden - its an endless world
    Battle Royal
    Vagabond
    MPD Psycho,
    Manhole
    Y10M,
    Ares
    Elfenlied

    PS: 7 seeds is good, but King of thorns sucks hardly. the mangaka succesfully destoryed his awesome plot with super girl power and very poor explanations for everything.

    ..but when I think about it..doesn't really matter

    Read Shin Angyo Onshi - really good one.

    Now this is just from what I've heard, and so could be completely unfounded, but isn't 7seeds of the shoujo/drama variety of survival story?

    Judging from this man's favourites, it seems like King of Thorns would be a far more appropriate reccomendation. Continuing in the the survival theme, I'd also recommend Drifting Classroom and Dragon Head.

    Since you like Zombie hunter, also read both Island and Shin Angyo Onshi. They're dark fantasy/action series made by the same people.

    7 Seeds is the shoujo/adventure, rather than shoujo/drama, variety of survival story.

    Bokurano! Normal people and survival are very major parts of the plot.
