manga recommendations thread

Forum: Anime Fans Group

here's a thread where we all recommend manga because we are very
bored and socially inept people who rely in an obscure revival of a dead
early 2000's social netword to feel like we belong.

i'll start:

Dungeon Meshi

Top
tier art, best fantasy manga i know. They basically don't have food and
have to cook the monsters they kill along their adventure throught the
dungeon. I'm in love with Marcille.


Otoyomegatari

Best art i've seen on manga so far, the amount of detail
on the textures and clothing of the characters is mind blowing. It's
about the middle east, but it focuses on the culture and relationships
of several people, with a fair bit of romance. It's a very laid back,
and despite being like that, there's always progression on the life of
the characters and things are always happening that keep it fresh and
interesting.


Shiori Experience

Shiori,
a japanese english school teacher, is haunted by the ghost of Jimi
Hendrix. I don't need to say anything else about this one. The art is
top notch, and the story reminds me of whiplash (the movie)
which is a very good thing.

Those are mine, I'm looking forward to your recommendations.

SKULLMAN

Skullman is a series about a dead man walking taking revenge on the people who took everything from him, all while uncovering a mystery. It's written by Shotaro Ishinomori, and later went on to inspire the ever popular tokusatsu series: Kamen Rider. The art is excellent and downright psychedelic at times. It's a continuation of the original oneshot from the 60s that was shunned for being too violent, seeing as he was Japan's first antihero.

Lately, I've been falling in love with the work of Oshimi Shuzo like Aku No Hana and Blood On The Tracks.

Ojisama to Neko is a really good short slice of life manga. its from the perspective of a 1 year old cat who hasnt been adopted yet untill an old man comes into the shop and adopts the cat. it gose through with the Fukumaru's (the cats name) anxiety that hes going to be returned or the old man wont/dosent love him (the old man loves him very much). its really cute and i think it has a short live action show with it.

Keep you hand off eizouken is super funny and really enjoyable. The artstyle is also nice, too bad they only released like 2 (maybe 3 I still need to check)
Theres an anime that goes farther so theres always that.

Biggest recommendation is The Ancient Magus' Bride and its two spin-off series, Wizard's Blue and Jack Flash. They're a series that focuses on the magic world and it's relationship with modern day England, France, and New York, respectively. The series is very lore-heavy, but its biggest focus is about understanding complex relationships and emotions.


The main series has an anime too, but they throw away chunks of the lore in exchange for awesome animation, so I suggest reading the manga first.

Blue Flag is queer coming of age, really reccomened for those who want to read a good story about queer kids figuring themselves out, friendship and many mor important themes, all with great storytelling and an even better artstyle (at least in my opinion ♡^▽^♡)

hehe I have a hyperfixation right now on Trigun. The story focuses on a man named Vash the Stampede, a staunch pacifist running from bounty hunters who seek to obtain the immense bounty on his head ($$60,000,000,000). As the series progresses, it goes in depth into Vash's past. There's a sort of western cowboy vibe to the manga with heavy scfi elements coming in later on. Everything takes place on a planet called "No Man's Land" (called Gunsmoke in the anime) and all of its characters are HIGHLY rememberable.




There's two mangas but you should start with the original Trigun and THEN go onto Trigun Maximum. There's a neat project going on that you can find on both Reddit and Tumblr called "Trigun Ultimate Overhaul" which seeks to make the English translation even MORE better :D

Brutal:satsujin kanatsukan no Kokuhaku



A policeman that likes to make justice by his own 

It’s gore and horror. The art style is quite good and even though is not finished, I enjoyed reading it

My recommendation is Toilet Bound Hanako-kun! It’s about a girl that makes a wish to the spirit Hanako and gets wrapped into his world :3


The manga is better IMO, altho the anime is GR8!! <33

1. World Trigger: the story was laid out well, in a big-picture manner, drawing style getting cleaner nowadays.


2. Archipel has introduced some alt manga on their YouTube site: https://youtu.be/x7Yo87NYhEk

One of my all time favorite mangas has to be Kaguya Sama: Love is war. It follows the complex relationship between miyuki, the student council president and Kaguya the vice president as they try to make one another confess their love. Its a great romantic comedy manga that is really engaging to read imo. There are also 23 english released volumes so far so there is no shortage of content to binge.
