    Default [request] Looking for a manga like...

    Recently i read, the 25 chapters of holyland, and i liked it alot. I thought it was well written, and how the fights were explained was well like a 9/10 for me XD

    So now im looking for a manga similar to holyland, with the martial arts theme, psychological theme to it. But i don't know where to look since its my first time reading something like holyland. (Most other martial arts manga i've read are more shounen type, i prefer something more well older and meaningful)

    So im pretty much looking for a manga thats like holyland....

    (Thanks in advance for any help)

    I've been reading it, im at chapter 44 now. But its a little different then i imagined, it's not that i don't like it, its just going in a different direction then i hoped. Im not going to stop reading it, but i hope theres others in this genre. (Martial arts/psychological)

    Hajime No Ippo goes into the psychology of boxing quite a bit, it isn't the main focus though.

    Heh im all caught, up in HnI. Its one of my top favorite, but its not exactly a psychological type you know?

    Also im all caught up in shamo XD , took me awhile though.... (im confused towards the end though, did he forget the martial arts the old man thought him? with the chi and balance and all the acrobats?)

    Try Vagabond? It's more character development through kenjutsu, but it's top notch in all cathegories. It's a story about Musashi's Life, but not all that historically correct.

    Well yeah I suppose it doesn't rub it in your face like Shamo does.
