Anything, really. Don't really have a preference. Just want to test the Manga waters. Something that will keep me hooked.

Manga is a really underrated form of literature, when people think of it all they see is these nerdy kids reading Naruto or Bleach.

But it goes way beyond that, there are some really great and thought-provoking books out there to be taken seriously, you just have to look further in.

So apparently Eiichiro Oda (creator of One Piece) and Hiro Mashima (Fairy Tale) have beef with one another: http://mangastream.c...0#disqus_thread

Manga is a really underrated form of literature, when people think of it all they see is these nerdy kids reading Naruto or Bleach.

But it goes way beyond that, there are some really great and thought-provoking books out there to be taken seriously, you just have to look further in.

UNDERRATED? MAYBE HERE IT IS, BUT BUT... IN JAPAN!? UNDERRATED!? GOD NO.

 

I've actually always been interested in Manga, but I never knew where to start. Is there one that you would recommend?

I started with Gantz, since the show ended quickly (filler ending), and the manga was still going. Gantz is a very good manga, although, I recommend Berserk, because it's widely known  as amazing and great (it's also still ongoing).

 

Berserk and Gantz both deal with similar themes, so if you like one, you'll probably like the other.

 

Berserk is a dark medieval fantasy about a motherfucking badass who don't get no sleep cause he's fucking demon's shit up all night. It has a lot of nudity, rape, gore, shit like that. Very good plot. Very very good. Won't say much more, as I don't want to spoil anything ;)

 

Gantz is a present day, sci-fi, alien slaying manga about a pervy, unpopular, teenage dipshit who gets hit by a train and dies within the first like... chapter... But he ends up in a small apartment room after that with a bunch of other dead motherfuckers, a dog, and a giant black ball which makes fun of them in 1337 and tells them to go fuck up these aliens, then pops the fuck open to reveal a bunch of sci-fi guns and suits for killing aliens, and a human man inside the ball who don't move. Then this naked bitch appears (cuz she died too), and our pussy ass protagonist gets a boner and falls in love with her (and the dog tried to lick her pussy too). Lots of rapey kinda shit, lots of gore, GREAT plot and idea, badasss shit. Lots of aliens, shit happens. It's solid. (manga ended about 5 months ago).

 

The only other thing I can think about at the moment would be the Battle Royale manga. The movie is good, but the manga has more stuff, and is also very good. 

 

Everyone has their own personal taste, so it's hard to suggest for others, but Berserk is pretty much known as great by everyone. If you watch anime, then I'd say read the same sort of genre of manga you would as anime you would watch. And if you don't watch anime, you should. Attack on Titan, Death Note, (even berserk and gantz are anime's to an extent), motherfucking AKIRA (which is also a manga and the manga has everyone doing drugs and shit and is kind of really good in a different but the same sort of way), Trigun (great anime, also a manga, but haven't read it. heard the manga has more to it), Higurashi (anime, sort of a manga? manga was done by a fan, it was originally a visual novel before the anime).

 

Speaking of Visual Novels, you might like those too. Pretty sure most of them have the premise of "You're this guy at school, try to fuck your female classmates", but I think some are different (i'm new to them myself, idk really). Here's a site for finding them http://vndb.org/g

 

Let me know if you don't really watch anime, and I'll give you more suggestions on that... Or tell me what kind of TV shows you like or movies, and I can suggest anime and manga in that sense. 

Not sure if its Manga related but that dbz film need to see it

No silly, that's anime. Manga is the one that is pictures that don't move or talk in your ear.

 

If suggest reading Shingeki No Kyojin if one hasn't. 

THE ATTACK ON TITAN GAME WORKS NOW FOR MULTIPLAYER YOU SHOULD PLAY THAT SHIT OUT, YO.

Oh, and as I just posted about.. Uzumaki by Junji Ito is a really good manga too. And it's short, so you don't have to commit as much as you would for Berserk or Gantz (which are quite big). You could finish it in a couple hours, maybe even less. Probably less. 

 

And keep in mind when reading manga that you will have to give it a while until you get interested enough to keep reading (like with any book), so don't give up after a couple pages, maybe read a couple chapters first. Same with anime, a couple episodes is usually a good amount to judge whether or not you're interested. 

 

Also, I'm noticing now that you posted this 2 years ago, so IDK how relevant this information will be to you now...

As The Gods Will: Series 1 and 2 (kamisama iutoori & kamisama iutoori ni)

 

oimg040.jpg?v=11360046401

 

This is the best manga I've read in years. It's all about surivival death games that two "gods" are forcing students to go through in order to compete against each other. It's bloody, crazy plot twists, and no character is safe just like in GOT. Takashi Miike is remaking a live action version of the first one, but I hope he does the whole series, because there's a lot of insane japanese folklore creatures in the second one and it ties into the backstory and main characters of the first one.
