    I'd have to agree with Digital Eon here. Wrong phrasing I guess.

    Anyways, I highly recommend the epic masterpiece Lone Wolf and Cub. It might seem really old school at first but it'll blow you away as the story progresses. How come no one's recommending it, btw?

    I'm also into Piano no Mori at the moment. It's seinen but the lead characters are kids which makes things refreshingly less complicated. Current scans are getting more and more interesting.

    If you want futuristic sci-fi in a contemplative setting, go for the highly underrated 2001 Nights. The mostly one-shot stories are interwoven into a masterfully planned whole towards the end. The drawings aren't conventional manga style but the stories will grow on you after a while (I got hooked on the second story).

    For more old school goodies, Ode to Kirihito is the way to go by the Father of Manga/Anime Osamu Tezuka. I don't think it available on-line though so you'd have to buy it in your nearest bookstore. At only one volume, it's very compact and very much worth your money.

    AND if you're into shoujo, I know of a couple of titles that really stand out.

    Also, anything by INOUE Takehiko is highly recommended.

    PS: Eternal Sabbath is a bit creepy.

    PPS: Aaah. Yotsuba&!. The ever-present recommendation.

    Thanks for the recommendations everyone.

    Yo, the title of the thread was a little tongue-in-cheek. Seinen just means something that's intended for adults right? In general I would say those are better but I also listed some romantic comedy stuff and I like old school stuff like nausicaa. In fact right now I'm reading this older romantic comedy called touch so I'm open to different things. Although I would have to say I probably wouldn't like shojo comics or whatever they're called.

    I also forgot to mention some other good series I've liked like :
    It's a wonderful life and pumpkin and mayonnaises

    Ey, if you like Touch then should read everything by Adachi (the mangaka behind Touch). Generally the same stuff, but enough differences to keep you hooked. I'm also flowing through Touch at the moment. H2 is like a must.

    LOL! I'm guessing your recommending "Yotsuba&Manslaughter"

    I second the recommendation on:
    Monster
    Eternal Sabbath

    Also try:
    Full metal Alchemist. The characters might goof around and act stupid but the story is definitely something worth following.

    That sounds like the title for a gay porno.


    Also, I recommend for the OP, "Loveless."

    You'd get along excellently with GGpX; he loves manholes. (It's actually about mosquitoes. Kinda.)

    Well, he does want to be a chef. I bet he smokes a lot of sausage.
