    Default What to read...

    Having just finished FMA, Death Note, and Zetman, I WANT SOMETHING NEW TO READ. Staring at the list of manga titles just isn't doing it for me. I'm trying to find something nice and long, preferably fantasy, certainly not some sports or everyday life thing. *dies of boredom* To be even more demanding; realistic artwork. As in, the eyes not taking up two thirds of the face. ^_^

    So, anyone have suggestions?

    You don't know Manga, till you have read the best of the best sports Mangas! Slam Dunk! Being one of them.

    For realistic artwork go read Akira, Berserk and Gantz. If you like Zetman, these should appeal to you big time.

    It's not just for manga, sports bore me everywhere, lol. But I'll go look at those others, thanks for the suggestions.

    Your not the only one, I fucking hate sports with a passion. But reading sports Manga is different, trust me.

    Regarding Berserk, get past the first 3 volumes before you judge it.

    this post SCREAMS for ...



    ONE PIECE!!!


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

    Yeah, you're basically screaming for berserk. But other mangas you should read would be Monster and Blade of the Immortal. If you wanna laugh read GTO or Welcome to the NHK.
    None of the mangas I've mentioned have these overdimensioned eyes you complain about... Those are what mangas are all about; manga stuff.

    One Piece is disturbing. o_0 I know a lot of people really like it but the style is so random.

    *writes down a couple titles* Where are you guys finding Berserk?

    Lone Wolf and Cub, it's a classic. Highly realistic style, great ongoing story with episodic content as well. Jiraishin for gritty realism and one of the more ruthless cops I've ever seen in any media. 20th Century Boys is a slow burner that might not appeal to you but if you go for it try and give it a couple of volumes before you make up your mind. Otherwise yeah go read Berserk though I should warn you it can be quite explicit in some places, but you enjoy Zetman so you should be ok thinkin about it.
