I suggest Nana.

It's about two girls that meet who have the same name but are complete opposites. It's really girly (I hate to admit) :) but very good. It's got some comedy and romance. There's both the manga and the series, and I recently found out from Marzipan that there's 2 live action movies.

I also suggest Neon Genesis Evangelion.
I think it's a very interesting series, it's got destruction, not your typical angels vs. demons, kid controlled robots, and great animation. They are re-doing the series, adding some computer generated scenes... spicing it up a bit, and it's awesome! I think they have a new manga for the series, but I haven't checked it out yet.

D.Gray-Man - Under appreciated and awesome. Without giving away too much, it's about a young boy named Allen Walker who uses innocence (which is an element in this world) to fight akuma (demons) as a part of the Black Order. REALLY GREAT.

Vampire Knight - So wonderful. Really great plot. Basically, it's about vampires and humans.

I don't know if you're talking about the "Angelic Days" manga there, but it's one of the best things to come out of NGE, in my opinion.

I'm shocked nobody mentioned this manga yet:

Witch Hunter, by Cho Jung-man. (I'm aware it's Manwha, but I didn't see anything mentioning none of those allowed to be posted.)


It's about a magical marksman named Tasha Godspell and his Supporter, Halloween, who are apart of an organization named Witch Hunters, who hunts down witches and executes them. It's a shounen, so guys can rest easy on it. It's fantasy with magical guns, living jack-o-lantern puppets, witches, and a whole lot more.

One anime I think everyone should see, yet no one seems to know, is Shingu: Secret of the Stellar Wars. It's set in the near future and is about mankind's unexpected encounters with aliens and giant robots... in theory, anyway. Actually, the show spends way more time on light-hearted, easy going school comedy than any interstellar drama. I like to call it the anti-Evangelion: teenagers and giant robots, yet angst free!

I remember that I won the first DVD of this in the Christmas name that anime contest and I really liked it as well. I believe the best way to describe it is "slice of life mecha." Need to get the rest of the series sometime, although the ending music sucked (it was like, elevator music).

For the crowd that is 18 & up, I suggest the manga Sensual phrase (Kaikan Phrase). There are 18 volumes and has a good story line. The anime is okay but tells a different side to the story.

I concur with frogsw/wings, that is a very good manga. ((Borrowed from her ^_^)).

I also recommend Wild Ones. Very Very good.

I recommend Kuroshitsuji. It's a very awesome series. Even though the opening theme makes it look very shonen-ai-esque, it is actually fairly straight with very few shonen-ai vibes (Well, there's just this one character that flirts with the butler all the time).

It's considered a bit... cultish, might be a good way to describe it. There are magical elements, angels and demons, etc. It's a very good show and manga, though the two don't exactly intertwine.

Sengoku Basara- It's a new anime and it can be found on youtube or searched on google. It only has about 4 or 5 eps. out but I think it's worth checking out. (It's a little confusing, people have multiple nicknames. Ex. Takeda=Tiger of Kai=Oyami=etc.)

Eden of the East (Higashi no Eden) is the highlight of the current season. It's directed by the guy who did GitS: SAC and SnM. So far it's really good. If you like mystery/adventure/drama then you'll love this.

yaoi doujin

Postby Baki » Sun May 24, 2009 10:30 pm

yeah its kinda on the more colorful side of the rainbow for me but i got pulled into the storyline. No Bra. hard as hell to find but if you have iphone or ipod touch or blackberries, download manga portal and look it up. the last volume isn't in the states and it was from 2003 so i don't know if the 5th book will be able to be found. but check it out

I think you can find that on Onemanga, cause I remember my sister showing it too me and saying I should read it (totally shocked me that her of all people would be recommending something like that. I read it though and thought it was cool.)

I'll...have to be recommending D.Gray Man like Sakamya. The manga is awesome, though the only thing I dislike is that the author appears to be sickly and for the third time is currently on hiatus. Though the anime is very amazing, too, and it closely follows the manga.

And...I've only just started watching it, but Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion. That anime is so amazing and is a must-watch for everyone.

(If I tried to describe either of them I'll probably phail horribly so I won't)

So

Postby AllenG919 » Mon Jun 01, 2009 4:39 pm

I dont think anyone has posted this manga

Pretty Face- About a high school boy who gets into a bus accident and is found by a doctor. The doctor can not tell what the boy looks like but does find a picture of a girl in the boys pocket (The girl is the boys secret crush). The doctor then performs plastic surgery on the boy changing him into the girl in the picture. The storyline involves him trying to change back to his normal self while trying to help someone special along the way.

Give this manga a try and if you like it please tell me! I am the only person to my knowledge who likes this manga and I dont want to feel alone!
