    I need a manga to read..

    Post by Serious_Much on Sat Jul 21, 2012 7:46 pm

    Hi guys, as some of you may know I'm fond of staying awake into the knight for no real reason, and well my favourite past time doing this is reading manga, nice and relaxing for me.

    Anyway, I'm all out of ideas on what to read. I'm not asking for any specific genre or style, just throw ideas at me, and I'll read the first chapter and see whether I like it enough to continue with it. If you don't know any manga, recommend anime (most are adaptions obviously)

    Thanks for your suggestions, but please try not to give me giant lists each, just the highest quality please happy

    Eureka 7 (always my go too)

    Trinity blood. Its more well rounded than most manga with a similar "feeling" about them.

    I am Hero
    Ressentiment
    Uzumaki
    Aqua Knight

    Nationial Quiz
    Jojo's Bizarre Adventure
    Even a Monkey Can Draw Manga
    Me and the Devil Blues
    Tokyo Akazukin
    Buddha

    Somewhere in there, I am sure there is a manga you haven't read, have a try; I can assure these are all good.

    ^^^^^^^Care to filter that down to 4 or 5 you think are the best thing you've ever ever read? happy

    Though I've read vagabond, Pluto and Uzumaki, they were all really good I thought in their own way as you'd know, vagabond's probably my favourite of the three (just because Naoki urasawa is my favourite mangaka, don't wanna appear totally biased silly )

    You didn't specify, lol. Your rule was just best thing/s you've read.

    Anyways, if epic fantasy is your thing, Record of the lodus war is a manga in a similar vein.

    *Psst* Title of the thread is I need a manga to read silly

    I don't have too much of a 'thing' with manga, I usually like it or I don't without correlation. I suppose it's just if I enjoy the feel and I'm engaged by it well.

    My favorite manga/anime is the previously mentioned Eureka 7. It get both, thats how much I like it.

    It made me cry with happiness, its literally the only thing, real or not, to accomplish that.


    I shy away from slice of life and horror, but those are my only real preferences in terms of genre.

    I like Birdy the Mighty as well but thats 5 so I'll stop now.

    You want more, but want me to list less. Wait a second, are you trying to trick me? You have read a few on the list already, and you have a rough idea of the quality; you know how hard it would be to choose among stuff like that! Besides, favourites don't translate so well among different people, it's (unsurprisingly) a personal thing; most of my tastes are arguably are considered acquired.

    shut up and whittle down the list silly

    That is kinda funny isn't it... :| I guess I only want a few from each so I get their best, so I have a list of people's favourites rather than an even bigger lists of everything they've ever read lol

    Aqiured taste is code for bad.

    alcohol is my best example, followed by rockstar, followed by coffee.

    Hey if I can like bad stuff, then my world is all the more full of joy. Anyways, I don't think the code of acquired taste for bad carries so well to the nauseatingly subjective world of literature.

    @Serious, You want me to whittle down the list, eh? Read Jojo's Bizarre Adventure. I recommend parts 2,3,5,6,7, but don't skip part 1, and 4. It has been going on for a while now, you aren't going to finish it in a night.

    Meh, not always. Though I know a lot of acquired tastes that are bad, doesn't necessitate it silly

    Lol, noone really likes the taste of alcohol we just use it to get drunk (or at least everyone our age does that)... what's wrong with rockstar?

    Roan, I wasn't intending on finishing it in a night, I take on a manga read that then go onto next when I'm done, I'd rather one with a decent length to it happy

    Everything is wrong with rockstar. I have tried to drink a full can, I couldn't hold it down. The juice things are barely tolerable.

    Also monster.

    lol, really energy drinks aren't an qcquired taste, that's just if you like a drink to be ridiculously sugary (I can't but they are reasonably tasty sometimes, though I like relentless personally if I do drink some)

    Monster>venom>amp>everything else. At least so far. Rockstar is the only one I really hate, but redbull is pretty bad.

    So... Fex you got me hooked on a girl's manga, and I like it....

    Wow, I got a guilty pleasure silly

    After I'm done with this (dunno how long will take) I'll probably give trinity blood a try, as it contrasts well seemingly to skip beat
