    Default Are there series like these on Stoptazmo?

    No one really has the time to comb each and every file on this site so now that I'm looking for a new series to enjoy, and I'd be nice if I could download it right here, at Stoptazmo! You can make similar requests below or talk about your favorite genres or what manga really go well together, I don't care. =0

    First off, I like good a drama and romance story, though I'd prefer it to have serious overtones and not be a stupid comedy. Something like Marmalade Boy or Fruits Basket or DNAngel.

    I also like shonen ai and yaoi, eheh. You know, like Gravitation and whatever else.

    Finally, I like a blended mix of fantasy, science fiction and deep thought, like in Neon Genesis Evangelion or Serial Experiments Lain.

    Help me out, please. Sorry if this is a bad thread, it's my first one. owo

    NANAKI. <3 There's shounen-ai if you want there to be, and if not, it's just a good story about psychic detectives with wonderful art. :3

    There's also Tsubasa Chronicle and D.Gray-Man, just because I feel morally obligated to mention them, but not for the yaoi. (Well, not the second one - again, with Tsubasa, it's kind of there if you look, but it isn't really there.)

    ...maybe Ouran Koukou Host Club, too?

    Also try Count Cain and Innocent Bird for shounen-ai (though I can't commit to the quality of the latter, as I haven't read it yet). We don't have very much here, really. If you're willing to look at shoujo ai, there's also Maria-sama ga Miteru, which is definitely very good.

    Four totally different possiblities otherwise within your parameters: Ai-Ren, Angel Sanctuary, B.O.D.Y., and Rough. The first two are science fiction and fantasy, respectively; the latter are serious shoujo and shounen romantic dramas, respectively. All of them, I can recommend without reservation as being among the best in their genres.

    Read...Berserk?

    Try Eden, for starters, and actually, you might as well give Berserk a shot. Just get past the first three volumes; they suck.

    IMHO, the first 3 vols are not that bad. Really. The artwork is not as good, but it's typical for a manga to start with less than satisfactory artwork and get better with time (practice makes perfect). Storywise, I like it better than the latest chapters. It gets really weird and un-Berserk-like with the Kushan invasion. I just want the current arc to be over soon.

    I actually love the current arc, honestly.

    Regarding the first few volumes...they have a tendency to turn people off of the series entirely. They aren't really that bad, I just think they're subpar when compared to the rest of the work.

    Actually, it was because I liked the first three volumes that I read Berserk. Nothing beat the Golden Age, but I might not have read very much if the current arc, or that one with the fairies, had been in the first volumes. >_> The art isn't terrible, either.

    ^ I actually didn't like the golden age that much, my favorite arc was the tower arc.

    First three volumes didn't really make me want to stop reading Berserk. I liked the part where he's in a wagon in a forest and shit happens >_>

    I just think that the Hindu stuff does not mesh well with God's Hand, the medieval Europe and Catholic Church in the previous arcs. It feels like Berserk suddenly took a 'wrong' turn.
